A Scandal-Plagued Administration

It was particularly revealing when David Axelrod explained that, of all his accomplishments in Barack Obama’s White House, he was proudest of the fact that “there hasn’t been a major scandal.” The qualifier “major” lays the burden on shoulders of the press to define what constitutes a serious scandal, and political media had thus far reliably covered the administration’s ethical lapses as merely the peculiar obsessions of addlebrained conservatives. Surely, much of the political establishment in Washington nodded along with Axelrod as he patted himself on the back. A mere seven months later, though, and it is clear now that the former advisor to the president will have to find pride in something else.

This administration is many things, but scandal-free is not one of them.

    Even Obama can remain “scandal free” when he has a complicit press that refuses to cover any of his scandals.
    The Lois Lerner IRS scandal should have buried him.
    Benghazi should have hurt him and ended Hillary’s political ambitions.
    Fast and Furious and Gunwalker should have done him in early.

    So much will come to the forefront after he is gone.

    They mean “unreported by the msm scandals”.

    The Limbaugh theorem at work. No matter what this dipshit does he will never be held responsible for anything. He can put people out of work, suborn perjury, lie lie lie, kill the American health care system, destroy national defense, and the standing of the US in the world, but God help anyone who blames Obama, because they’re racist don’t cha know.

    In USA, as in Canada, only the conservatives are capable of major scandals.
