Default Top Twenty Obama Scandals and Coverups

1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.

2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one:
◾The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission.
◾The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video
◾The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack

3. Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.

4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.

5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.

6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

7. Potential Holder Perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.

8. Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.

9. The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.

10. GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.

11. Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.

12. Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.

13. Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.

14. AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.

15. The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.

16. Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.

17. Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.

18. AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.

19. Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).

20. I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”

Unless the OP wrote the above post word for word, according to forum rules, the OP must post the source.

Dear Guest: If you went to college then you would know that stealing one word is called plagiarism while stealing the whole account is termed research.

What I find disheartening here is most posters complained that the OP did not identifying the source but conveniently ignored responding to the charges made against the most deceptive, racially motivated and dishonest Administration in the history of this country. And given that politicians are a motley crew lot at that makes this Administration's acts that much more egregious.

What also is of great concern is that those making excuses for, agree with and defending this Administration's actions either don't know or don't care that these sort of actions are taken by countries that desire to control their population. The activities taken by this Administration are by any measure illegal and unconstitutional. so if you don't care if a government tells you how, where, why, and when to live then please go to North Korea and leave the heavy lifting to American patriots

Using Google, it's just as easy to find the same or worse scandals from previous administrations.

This is just more right wing hysteria [the sky is falling] for no good reason.

Ok, I'll take a stab at one.
Who is the highest ranking government official to who the ambassador to Libya complained in person about security issues in Benghazi? And what did that official do about it?

Dear guest: Stop the Alinsky tactics please . We are not talking about any other Administration we are talking about THIS Administration but then given the depth nature and scope of their unlawful actions one can see why you would want to deflect. Beside which even Nixon's action which force him out of office were never as egregious as this Administration and "but for" the liberal media's protection Obama and many of his sycophants would have been booted out long ago.

So far not one poster who disagreed with the OP has offered one single cogent argument but all offered charges, name calling or ridiculous jabs at Fox News. So bad is it that even a well educated people like Josh Earnest, Jen Psaki can cover for this Administration bust blunders scandals and incompetence

Personal Best Regards:

P.S. I suspect some of these posts may be being made by trolls. If so thank you because it gives me the opportunity to respond more and more broadly about this immature and incompetent Administration

Dear Guest: the sky is falling - the sky is falling - the sky is falling.

Alinsky tactics; that's all you got?

The point of my post was that any intelligent person can go to the internet and cherry pick a 100 different sources to make their slanted point. However, only some on here are able to do that effectively. The rest are using Alinsky tactics, if they post an opposing view.

By the way, you don't have to be a troll to oppose some of the views and hatred spewed on here.

Oh yeah, Personal Best Regards

This site is permeated with hate. There is no reason. It's the same affliction our country has suffered for six years and continues today. The same six to eight people are simply demonstrative of the tea party infested politics on this forum. They have absolutely no room for compromise, just say no at any cost to our nation as was demonstrated yesterday and continues. Gerrymandered districts have given these power not rightfully deserved and this is the result of bought and paid for state representatives, the real problem in this country. We don't pay enough attention as the koch brothers and others such as the Morses buy and install personal state representatives that have no purpose other than represent their( uber rich) personal and corporate values!

What a cute post.

We're 6 years into an 8 yr attempted socialist takeover and the patriotic citizens of this nation simply won't stand by and allow the inmates to take over the asylum!

Thank GOD for the TEA PARTY!

This nation was founded on Warren G. Harding's "rugged individualism", not Marx's socialism. Your comments of class warfare and accusations of illegality by noted conservatives is right out of the far-left handbook (predictable and always good for a hearty chuckle - thank you!)
