According to liberal darling Rachel Maddow, the Obama administration was above reproach. Returning to her sanctimonious ways after a brief absence due to illness, Maddow addressed her Tuesday night fans, remembering with fondness the days when Barrack Obama was president.
According to Maddow:
“Almost every modern president has relied on private lawyers to help him respond to whatever scandal that administration is facing. President Obama, I should mention, is an exception to that. President Obama had a private lawyer but there was never a major scandal during his administration that required him to use that private counsel.”
This liberal mantra, that Obama’s illustrious legacy is pure and exalted, forgets that there were, indeed, scandals rife within the Obama administration. However, the media didn’t cover them with any enthusiasm.
So while former President Obama may not have had use for his private counsel, his presidency was not without controversy or scandal. In case anyone forgot, here is a list of a few incidents that prove it:
- The IRS’ targeting of conservative groups
- The Benghazi scandal
- The Fast and Furious Scandal
- Paying terrorists for hostages
NewsBusters covered these and other instances in detail.
