President Barack Obama: ‘We Didn’t Have A Scandal That Embarrassed Us In My Presidency’

6 1,256

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?

    Very sad to think that he is so delusional to think he was not embarrassed but rather an embarrassment to our entire country and the laughing stock of the world. We need to keep putting these ’embarrassing’ scandals out there until there is nothing the liberal media can do but accept and report on that. Once he and Hillary are in jail maybe the truth of all the ’embarrassing’ scandals will finally become common knowledge.

    Thank you Ed and John for calling it for what it was…a national disgrace. He’s right though, he didn’t have “a” scandal; he had too many to mention without encroaching upon eternity.

    Barack Obama is a total disgrace. You’re right “obummer”—you didn’t have a single scandal, you had many which you very sneakily tiptoed around. You crook!

    He was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and they are linked to terrorism, but that didn’t embarrass him, he practically destroyed the United States, by firing mutiple high ranking officers in our military, because they wouldn’t cower down to the way he wanted things to run, he over ran Congress, and bragged about it because duuring one of his State of the Union addresses he said he had a phone and a pen , and he used them a lot by making multiple Executive Decisions. He didn’t want to be the President of the United States, he wanted to be the Dictator of the United States, and then when he realized that he couldn’t serve a third term, he did everything in his power to get Hillary to follow him into the Presidency, because Hillary had already agreed with him that she would follow in his footsteps, because she is just as deceitful as he is. And Obama and Hillary had already filled as many jobs as they could in the government with Muslims, and you know, Muslims don’t want to just follow our ways and laws, they want to convert every citizen in the country to become Muslim and follow Sharia law.

    YOUR entire time in office was an embarrassment. AND there are too many to list but try Benghazi and Uranium One.

    Obama never had a scandal that embarrassed him during his administration-this IS NOT the same thing as saying there was never a scandal during his administration. There were, in fact, dozens of scandals during hie eight years, but he is not easy to embarrass. He had three or four scandals aimed at getting rid of the second amendment, but they didn’t embarrass him. He spied on the opposition party candidate for president in an attempt to tilt the election, but it didn’t embarrass him. He used the IRS to limit opposition party funding for his second campaign, but that didn’t embarrass him, either. He worked to keep Iran from ever getting a nuke by making certain they had all the equipment and money they would ever need to develop one, but-you guessed it-it didn’t embarrass him. He got $800B approved for “shovel ready jobs” to improve the economy-later, when all the money was gone and the economy still stunk he joked there may be no such thing as a shovel ready job-but, embarrassed, are you kidding?
