From the moment Obama came on the scene, many Americans knew the man posed a danger to the Republic.
His stealthy past, and propensity for crooked dealings was well documented. The Left ignored it. Even Obama’s admitted use of cocaine and other drugs was presented as “cool.”
After Obama was elected, he quickly validated his incompetence. He broke most of his good promises, and of course implemented the most demented.
For example, this man traded 5 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 Obama. He was heralded not only as a benevolent dictator, but “tolerant” was the word most bandied about.
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 from day one, and slightly before, and some of the major scandals are covered on pages of their own, e.g.,
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.
Interestingly, there is no mention of his former Secretary of State’s scandals, many of which implicate him and/or his administration.
All I can say is I’m happy the Era of Obama and his scandal-free administration has essentially ended.
