The Democrats’ liberal amnesia was on full display this week, when former President Barack Obama told a conference in Las Vegas that his administration “didn’t have scandals” and that “it’s a big deal.”
According to Newsweek, the former President was speaking at a technology summit in Nevada when he swiped at his successor, saying “I didn’t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn’t be something you brag about.”
“But actually,” he added, “if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It’s a big deal.”
“No one in my White House ever got in trouble for screwing up as long there wasn’t malicious intent behind it,” said Obama.
Even the article’s author critiqued Obama’s claim, saying “The former president’s foes would disagree with that analysis, pointing to the 2012 Benghazi attack, his failure to close Guantanamo Bay, an IRS plan to scrutinize tax-exempt political groups based on the particulars of their politics and problems with the Affordable Care Act website.”
They conveniently forgot to mention unmasking, Uranium One, Clinton’s email server, James Comey, Operation Fast and Furious, the Iranian nuclear deal, pay-to-play at the Clinton Foundation, Russian election meddling, FISA abuse, and more.

ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Says OBAMA ADMIN to Blame for Russian Meddling
Liberal congressman Adam Schiff publicly admitted over the weekend that former President Barack Obama dropped the ball on Russian election interference; saying his administration was partially to blame for foreign meddling throughout the 2016 race for the White House.
Speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations Friday, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee spoke out about the Obama administration’s “minimal response” as accusations of Russian interference made national headlines.
“Russians are equal-opportunity malevolent actors,” said Schiff. “They’re not Republican and they’re not Democrats. They’re just designed in their foreign policy and their cyber policy to undermine the United States.”
“I do think though, that in fairness, some responsibility is attributed to the Obama administration for not establishing a more forceful deterrent. I think it goes back to the [North] Korean hack of Sony, which there was a minimal response. I think others around the world watched that,” he added.

CAMPUS CHAOS: Students ‘STUNNED’ that Obama ALSO Sent Troops to Border
Liberal students at the University of California in Santa Barbara were “stunned” and “shocked” to learn that former President Barack Obama also deployed the National Guard to the southern border; slamming the move as a “huge waste of money.”
Reporters from Campus Reform spoke with students at the left-wing university; asking their opinions on Trump’s recent decision to send troops to help protect the US-Mexico border.
“President Trump recently announced he’s going to be sending a few thousand troops down to the border… Do you support sending troops down to the border?” asked the journalist.
“I feel like it’s not justified,” said one student. “I definitely disapprove, it just puts a bad light on America.”
“Did you know that Obama did the same thing when he was president?” pressed the reporter.
“Honestly, I didn’t know that,” she admitted.
