LIST OF SCANDALS (TOP 20)

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."
"I will continue to enforce all the laws, including illegal immigration. Nothing changes." - Sheriff Joe Arpaio (American hero)

Ever's a big word, well, it's a long one.

You mean like U.S political administration? I guess that's arguable, but probably untrue.

Warren G. Harding essentially never utilized government assets for even nominally "public" purposes, and once lost the white house china (public property I believe) in a goddamn poker game. Great president compared to most, because he never f***ed something up by trying to accomplish something, but textbook definition of corrupt.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

But a man who does this "Harding visited his mother every Sunday and gave her a bouquet of flowers. Later when he was to far away from home, he had the flowers delivered to his mother." can't be corrupt.

Logic fail.

I hope you were referring to your statement there as the logic fail. Corruption as a government official has literally nothing to do with whether you send flowers to your mother (unless you use government funds to do it).

You of course had grant who was the man who barely knew a thing about politics whose administration actually triggered the Gilded Age, the age where political scandals was really at its worse.

Then of course you have Nixon who caused a lot of sh*t by authorizing secret invasions of Laos and Cambodia without letting the public know, and then watergate on top of that drove everything to sh*t...

Bush had quite a few scandals too regarding the reasons to invade Iraq, passing the Patriot act and really curbing rights in the name of security which to this day really pisses off some people

Reagan had a few issues with the whole Iran-Contra scandal that involved selling arms to Iran and using those funds to fund rebels in latin America, something that if Obama tried to pull would probably get him killed....

The point is that all presidents have their scandals, and its been that way ever since Jackson was president.

Also justcheno, do you realize that half the crap you claim are scandals are just stuff you make up and then try to pass them off as scandals?
