Barack Obama: ‘We Didn’t Have a Scandal that Embarrassed Us’ in My Presidency
Breitbart ^ | February 27, 2018 | CHARLIE SPIERING

Former President Barack Obama denied that his administration had any scandals that embarrassed him or his team.

It is unclear why Obama clarified that there were no scandals “that embarrassed us.”

“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.”

Conservatives remember the Obama years differently, citing the Fast and Furious scandal, the IRS scandal, wiretapping journalists, the terror attacks in Benghazi, delivering pallets of cash to Iran, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server for government emails.

Progressivism is the politics of denial.

He is correct. They had scandals. Plenty of ‘em. They just didn’t embarrass them.

HIS ENTIRE PRESIDENCY WAS AN EMBARRASSMENT. The scandals have shown themselves once he and the Kool-Aid drinkers left. We now see the corruption, the illegal actions he and his administration undertook.

Oh, now he admits to the scandals. He just didn’t feel embarrassed by them.

A scandal that he is referring to is the one that defined Billy Jeff’s legacy. The other stuff is just politics. So Barak is no Tiger Woods. That’s quite an accomplishment.

Your Presidency WAS the embarrassment, Barry.

It may simply be that he is so mesmerized by himself, that he is not capable of being embarrassed. His ego repels any derogatory news to the contrary.

The Taliban Five deal for Bergdahl...I think rates in the top five embarrassments for the administration. Even today....no one ever discusses this in public.

The obama admin was a treason regime.

Obama voters and the fakestream media put a KNOWN INELIGIBLE marxist muslim America-hating faggot illegal alien in the oval office. We had 8 long years of an enemy combatant as commander in chief.

The jury is still out whether we survived or not...

For once he spoke the truth. These people are not embarrassed by anything - they know no shame-not even for the worst criminal and treasonous acts.

The deterioration of race relations is a scandal-——and he is DIRECTLY responsible.

He bowed to foreign leaders. Fast and furious. Iran nuclear deal. Russia invading Ukraine. An ambassador murdered. IRS targeting political enemies. Pay for play in the state department. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Eric holder. Those are just the scandals and embarrassments I can think of off the top of my head.
