From the moment Barack Obama came on the scene, many Americans knew this “scandal-free” man posed a danger to the Republic.
His stealthy past and propensity for crooked dealings were well-documented. The Left ignored it. Even Obama’s admitted use of cocaine and other drugs was presented as “cool,” and somehow, the man squeezed through eight years of presidency claiming to be “scandal-free.” The Left bought that one hook, line, and sinker.
After Obama was elected, he quickly validated his incompetence. He broke most of his good promises, and of course implemented the most demented of them.
For example, this man traded five really bad American-hating Muslims for one American-hating American-turned-Muslim. He’s practically emptied GITMO of the worse American-haters on the planet, returning them to combat.
Moves like this would have gotten an employee of any company drug-tested, but not Barack Obama. He was considered not only to be a benevolent dictator, but heralded as “tolerant,” as if tolerance is a virtue when dealing with American-haters.
Obama’s delusion has become pathological.
While in Peru on his final trip as President of the United States, Obama actually said that he was proud that his administration remained scandal-free. He then knocked on wood, saying “I still have two months to go.”
As the Free Beacon reported,
President Obama claimed there had been no “major scandal” in his administration during a Democratic fundraiser Sunday night in San Diego.
Obama made the comment while railing against Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), the former chairman of the House Oversight Committee who once called him “one of the most corrupt presidents” in modern history.
“Here’s a guy who called my administration perhaps the most corrupt in history–despite the fact that actually we have not had a major scandal in my administration–that, when Trump was suggesting that I wasn’t even born here, said, well, I don’t know, was not sure,” Obama said, according to Politico Playbook. “This guy has spent all his time simply trying to obstruct, to feed the same sentiments that resulted in Donald Trump becoming their nominee.”
The attacks came quickly, as people questioned Obama’s state of mind to suggest such his administration is scandal-free.

Here is a partial list of scandals. I will leave you to judge for yourself what rises to the level of “scandal” in your lexicon.
The Obama administration has been immersed in scandals and sub-scandals since slightly before day one of his presidency. Some of the major scandals can be found here:
Obama’s highly suspicious biography, forged birth certificate, and fraudulent Social Security number
Fast and Furious
Paying ransom to Iran
Lies about unemployment numbers and job creation
Lies about Obamacare
Lies about taxes and spending
Lies about energy production
Lies about immigration and border security
Lies about everything else
Intentionally weakening the American economy
Intentionally weakening America’s defenses
The use of the IRS as a weapon
The use of the EPA as a weapon
The use of the NLRB as a weapon
The use of the Fish and Wildlife department as a weapon
The heavily politicized Department of Justice
The VA hospitals
Lois Lerner’s conveniently deleted emails
Wholesale amnesty by executive fiat
Acting like a Marxist dictator
Changing the Obamacare law day by day
and a number of miscellaneous scandals.
Please note that this list does not include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s numerous scandals, many of which implicate Barack Obama and/or his administration. If I included Clinton’s scandals on this list, you would be forced to scroll down the page so far you’d think you were reading the Obamacare regulations.
All I can say is I’m happy the Era of Obama and his scandal-free administration has essentially ended.
