Obama: Scandals Are Phony, Just Bone-Headed Mistakes

First there is this from Breitbart:

Obama: ‘Federal Workers Do Bone-Headed Things’ Like VA Waiting List Scandal

26 Jun 2014

Thursday at a town hall meeting in Minneapolis, President Barack Obama defended the federal government by saying, "That whole idea that government is the problem or the enemy is just not true." But he did concede shortly after that "some federal workers… do bone-headed things."

Isn’t Obama one of those federal workers who make boneheaded mistakes? (Except, none of what Obama does is really a mistake. Which is the real scandal.)

He citied as an example–to not "paint with a broad brush"–the Veterans Affairs waiting list scandal that has reportedly caused the deaths of dozens of veterans..

Because the problems at the VA were just bone-headed mistakes. The same with the IRS. The same with the DOJ scandal. The same with Benghazi and the illegal alien flood. There is not even a smidgen of corruption.

Meanwhile, here is more from Obama, via CNS News:

Obama: ‘They’re Phony Scandals’

By Susan Jones | June 27, 2014

(CNSNews.com) – President Obama warned people in Minnesota Friday not to believe what they hear on television:

"They’re fabricated issues, 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," the president insisted.

Here are his remarks in context:

I don’t — I don’t watch TV news generally, or cable shows —

Wait a minute. Obama and his media flacks have told us that Mr. Obama only found about about his various scandals by watching the news. (Including the Fast & Furious scandal, the IRS scandal, the DOJ scandal, the Obama-Care rollout fiasco, the VA scandal.)

[B]ut I suspect if you’re out here and going to work and picking up your kids and taking them to soccer or at night sitting there paying the bills, and you just turn on the TV, sometimes it must feel kind of discouraging because it doesn’t feel like what’s being talked about in Washington has anything to do with what’s going on in your lives day-to-day. And it must feel as if sometimes you’re just forgotten…

What is he talking about? The mainstream media has studiously ignored Obama’s scandals for the most part. Just imagine how unhappy he would be if they reported them?

[T]he news that’s coming off is just — these are just Washington fights. They’re fabricated issues, they’re phony scandals that are generated.

Which Obama scandals are phony? Benghazi? The VA? The IRS? The flood of illegals coming across the border?

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…

Like solving the real problems of climate change and income inequality and discrimination against transgenders. And of course the granting of amnesty. Those the real problems that real Americans are concerned about. — But Obama isn’t out of touch. No way.

You are who I’m thinking about every single day. And just because it’s not reported in the news, I don’t want you to think that I’m not fighting for you. And I’m not always going to get it done as fast as I want because right now we’ve got a Congress that’s dysfunctional. I’ll be honest with you," the president said, "you got a party on the other side that — whose only rationale — motivation seems to be opposing me…

Somehow we just knew that the Republicans were to blame. Maybe if they didn’t control the news media, this wouldn’t happen.

    “‘I’ll be honest with you,’ the president said….”


    Nerobama’s “phony scandals” may be the first scandals in US history that have resulted in American deaths (or will result in American deaths) :

    • VA
    • Benghazi
    • Fast & Furious
    • open borders
    • release of foreign felons
    • release of GITMO detainees
    • ObamaCare

    And this is just for starters … he’s still got more than two years to go.
