Posted on 06/27/2014 12:20:50 PM PDT by lbryce
Amid the IRS scandal, the VA mismanagement, and other D.C. scandals, President Obama declared Thursday that government is not the problem and once again accused Republicans of trying to promote "phony scandals" for political gain.

At a town hall in Minnesota (clip above), Obama admitted screw-ups and "bone-headed" actions within the federal government.
"Are there some federal workers who do bone-headed things? Absolutely," he said, recalling former Defense Secretary Robert Gates once telling him "at any given moment, on any given day, somebody in the federal government is screwing up."
"They're phony scandals that are generated. It's all geared towards the next election or ginning up a base -- it's not on the level. And that must feel frustrating, and it makes people cynical and it makes people turned off from the idea that anything can get done," said Obama, though it was not clear which specific scandal he was talking about.

I take only the most infinitesimal modicum of satisfaction of knowing that while this self-absorbed solipsistic sociopath lives in the moment, revels in his time, fully engaged in the heady indulgence of his nihilistic fantasies, to wreak utter, vile havoc, destruction against that which he reviles most, like few have ever been privy to, he will not be granted the sort of grandiose, glorified legacy that most of his ilk desperately yearn for.
History will not look upon him with the slightest favor, will mark his black days here on Earth as one of destiny's most godforsaken, misbegotten political demons of all time.
Perhaps he is well aware of that and is all too happy to make the Faustian Bargain of his dreams, like few have ever had.

I would LOVE to tell Obama right to his face to go F himself..slowly and painfully
Hey Soetoro! How about you and your boys up in the District of Corruption “ginning up” some of Lerner’s emails! Punk!
You just did, and here comes the drone ..
Yeah, if the scandals are so “phony”, I’m sure the emails would exonerate you of all wrong doing, so cough ‘em up and we’ll let it go.
I’m afraid you will find lots of history professors writing books celebrating Obama as a great, “historic” president. Thankfully, not all the books about him will be written by leftist academics.
LOL I’m waiting, so far no drone..but if one comes I will know what to do..DUCK!
So Watergate was just a “boneheaded move” and Nixon is owed an apology, right?
Obama, “I am not a crook.”
Impeach Obama for failing to realize he’s committed impeachable offenses. We are in danger with a ‘man’ like this in the White House.
Phoney Damage Control
Don’t worry I saw the fems camps and they look nice.
Exactly. And while they’re at it, Americans would like to see Elijah Cummings’ emails also! The boy says Americans don’t have any “evidence”. Well, I’ll bet he could provide us with a whole truckload of it.
There’s a distinct difference between “screwing up” and “committing a felony.”
“History will not look upon him with the slightest favor, will mark his black days here on Earth as one of destiny’s most godforsaken, misbegotten political demons of all time.”
History these days is being written by ideologues brainwashed by our communist educational system.
I think King Obongobongo has been ginning up.
Or maybe chooming up.
We’re all one big family. There’s no distinction between one human and another. Enemies of the State will be placed in one giant Andersonville.
Someone IS trying to scare voters this year, but I can't say it is the GOP.
The only thing “phony” is the fool on the hill.
Memo to Obama: “dude, you’ve ALREADY ginned up the conservative base ..”
is that the brand name of the oven?
Just kidding, but yeah it will be like that.
Is that another way of saying that Osama Obama continues to live the life set out for him in Rules For Radicals?
nah, if they wanted to “gin up” (?) the base they’d just talk about his birth certificate and how he’s a muslim and born in Kenya and all...

They’re all phony scandals. Knock it off, and move on.

Wonder how Jimmy Carter feels about being replaced as the second worst president moving him to third.
Thank you very much. Much appreciated.
The biggest A-hole America’s ever seen is making a laughingstock out of himself.
Memo to to Obama and Obamabots: We were ginned up long ago. We are now white hot!

You know there’s alot more I can add to that “phony” (SARC) scandal list? However, I gotta get back to work.
God Bless the USA and FUBO!!!
Yeah, one in particular comes to mind . . .
No one in the regime took a job without a pardon on all future crimes in his pocket.
Barry is God’s judgement upon this country.
Don’t be sorry. I can’t say that I disagree with you. I was expressing my point of view rhetorically.
A racist heterophobic attack on whit Irish gin drinkers!
President jarret should just replace him with Biden and get it over with.
Obama’s so obviously mentally ill or he’s on some very powerful drugs.
Hey Barry! Put up or STFU! Show us Lerner’s “smidgens”! And don’t give us your “computer crash” bull****! We’re not buying it!
Mr. Obama, Secretary Gates was referring to you!
“Barry is Gods judgement upon this country.”
This is the correct answer. Pretty sure more is coming otherwise God needs to apologize for what he did to Sodom and Gomorrah
Obama is a demigod
