Biden Says No Scandals Under Obama. Oh Really?

joe-biden-iowa-city Recently Joe Biden was speaking at a campaign stop and said he was proud to say there were no scandals under Obama.,

BIDEN: “Know what I was most proud of? For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie.

Oh really Joe? Of course, there wasn’t a hint. The MSM propaganda machine always looked the other way like they do with any Democrat. That one statement is sufficient to rule him out as a presidential candidate on the basis of utter obliviousness to reality.

Creepy Uncle Joe is delusional, Fast and Furious, the Benghazi debacle which displayed the cowardice of the Obama administration, and then using federal law enforcement to spy on your political opponents. And those are just three of at least a dozen others. Nope, creepy Uncle Joe you simply benefited from a compliant press that would not question anything you did.

Obamacare will reduce your premiums.” “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” “Benghazi was the result of an anti-Islamic video.” The list goes on and on but the media won’t challenge him at all.

How about Lois Lerner using the IRS to target conservatives and tea party groups?How about Obama secretly obtaining the phone records of AP reporters? Trying to railroad some Muslim film director into prison for making a home video? No scandal there, right?

How about The “dead of night” Iranian “cash on a pallet” deal, Joe?  How did Obama give away Billions in cash to Iran w/o approval of Congress?  The so-called treaty was so much BS and you were involved!

You really do sleep a lot, don’t you Joe?

Let’s see; Benghazi, fast and furious, spying on a Republican presidential candidate, IRS targeting conservatives, blaming police for shooting a thug assaulting an officer, etc. Yup,  no scandals.

Politifact awarded Obama the “Lie of the Year” in 2013 for telling the public that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it” when it came to the Affordable Care Act.

Obama traded five people detained at Guantanamo for Bowe Bergdahl, a soldier held by the Taliban for five years after leaving his post and who was dishonorably discharged from the Army for doing so.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted in an email to her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, that the September 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that cost the lives of four Americans and resulted in an investigation into the incident was a “planned attack” by al-Qaeda and “not a protest.”

The 150 billion in cash secretly given to Iran on the same day the Iran nuclear deal was formally adopted by the Islamic Republic and four American prisoners released.

However, one of the worst scandals of the Obama administration was the Operation Fast and Furious debacle where the Department of Justice under Eric Holder authorized the sale of weapons to Mexican cartels in hopes of tracking them.

As one might imagine, it was a total fail. The administration wasn’t able to track the guns, and they were used to kill U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry as well as Mexican law enforcement officers.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder received a contempt citation from the House Oversight Committee for the botched gun-running Operation Fast and Furious. Holder was ripped in the Fast and Furious hearing for deception in the gun-running scandal.

How about Biden’s pay for play dealings with his son’s deal in the Ukraine and China, bragging about getting the Ukraine prosecutor fired for investigating his son.

Biden and son

The whole rigging of the election of Hillary happened under their watch, FISA abuse, the whole dirty Russian dossier filed with fake lies on Trump all happened under Obama and Biden.

The Obama/ Biden years were riddled with corruption: The worst economy in history. The first administration not to reach 3% GDP growth, lowest homeownership rate in 51 years, lowest labor participation rate in 50 years, worst recovery since the ’40s, 15 million more on food stamps and 8 million more in poverty. What alternative universe is Biden living in to say there were no scandals under Obama?

Biden and Obama

No wonder they call him sleepy Joe. Biden was asleep at the wheel for the 8 years he was Vice President.

At this same speech, Biden mentioned Trump’s name 76 times. This shows that Trump is living rent-free in Biden’s mind 24/7 just like all the rest of the Democrat candidates who have nothing to offer except attacking Trump.

When Biden first announced, some of the polls had him at close to 40 percent. Since then, his double-digit lead has evaporated.

The stunning thing, though, is that previous front-runner Bernie Sanders has not been the beneficiary of the Biden downturn. It actually looks like Sanders has topped out around 18 percent. Now, candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg are starting to make a surge and have almost pulled even with Sanders.

Realize too, the other candidates have not really started to fire shots at Biden and when they do, you know they are going to go after his lackluster record and middle-of-the-road stance on many of the issues.

Fasten your seat belts and grab the popcorn for it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
