President Barack Obama: ‘We Didn’t Have A Scandal That Embarrassed Us In My Presidency’
What the hell does that even mean? I can think of a whole list starting with Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Bowe Bergdahl, the IRS and the surveillance of President Trump. And the list goes on and on and on.
When Barack Obama spoke at the 12th annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston, MA, I wondered why the event was off-the-record. Well, because he was going all revisionist and lying his head off for one thing.
No photography, recording or social media posting about Obama’s appearance was allowed. There were over 3,500 people in attendance and there was no way it wouldn’t come out. It didn’t take long to leak.
“There were mistakes,” he admitted. “We’d screw up, but there wasn’t anything venal during eight years. I know that seems like a low bar, but you look at the presidency; that’s no small thing.”

Obama claimed there were mistakes made, but then said, “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.” Previously, Obama has made the same claim… that his presidency is scandal-free. It’s beyond outrageous when you look at what happened during his presidency, but he’s giving it his all to whitewash history. Before leaving office he claimed his administration was “probably” the first “in modern history that hasn’t had a major scandal in the White House.” Others in his administration also repeated this “scandal-free” narrative like a coordinated chorus hoping, after repeating it often enough, the people would believe it was true. Sadly, many people do believe it.
Obama’s latest nuance is that, “Generally speaking, you didn’t hear about a lot of drama inside our White House.” He was just better at controlling it than Trump is, but believe me… there was turmoil. Obama failed to mention reports of his press secretary Robert Gibbs’s cursing at Valerie Jarrett and first lady Michelle Obama. Gibbs left the administration soon after. There were over two dozen scandals during Obama’s presidency and every one of them was covered up by the media. The first of which occurred right after Obama was elected. It involved the attempted illegal “sale” of his former Senate seat by former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who wanted to profit from what he called “a [expletive] valuable thing.” Even though Obama denied being involved, he had a wish list of replacements that was uncovered.
“I did have a strong bias towards people who just wanted to get things right, get things done, as opposed to people who were obsessed with ‘I want to be right. I want to [be] prominent. I want to have my name in the headlines,’” he said. “And if you can create that culture, then you are more likely to be successful.”
In reality, Obama’s presidency was the most scandalous in history. He just had the media as a propaganda arm rewriting events to protect him in a very dictatoresque sort of way. Don’t forget the VA scandal, Solyndra, the OPM hacking scandal, wiretapping journalists, the GSA scandal, the Iran ransom scandal, Uranium One, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server for government emails or the ones I mentioned previously. That alone should turn you off the mainstream media forever.

I predicted that when Obama left office that the dirty details of his presidency would start to surface like dead bodies in a lake. I said his presidency would be the most corrupt in history and that is playing out just as I predicted. In December of last year, Politico published the bombshell report about how the Obama administration stonewalled an investigation of an international drug-trafficking operation of the Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah in order to protect his nuclear deal with Iran. The media outright ignored the story. ABC, CBS and NBC didn’t bother to cover it. And there is much more where that came from.
Obama makes Nixon look like a choirboy. But the left and the media painted him as a saint and dubbed him ‘scandal-free’. What a horrific joke. But the media is not all that when it comes to truth and information anymore and Obama cannot bury what he did and keep it six feet under. However, it did expose that the left is now brazenly operating as the communists they are and the media has been weaponized.
As Townhall.com pointed out, John Adams once wrote, “Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right […] to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean, of the characters and conduct of their rulers.” The media denied us the knowledge of Obama’s character and conduct and will never stop doing so. If we don’t shine the light on the facts of Obama and his presidency now, the myth of a “scandal-free” Obama administration will be written as fact for the history books. If we don’t hold all of our leaders on both sides of the political aisle accountable, just how long do you think we’ll be a free nation?
