What Scandal?

This is the problem, its like the Clinton administration that was so wracked with scandals it was impossible to keep track. The best you could do was remember the last few, no matter how incredibly horrific the previous ones were. People are only talking about the IRS and so on now, forgetting the Fast & Furious scandal, which is unthinkably horrible.

That's 21, game over?

@John: Oh no, there are more -- the taxpayer money wasted on companies like Solyndra, paying off political cronies first in bankruptcy proceedings; the theft of GM to hand to the unions, freezing out investors; political targeting by not only the IRS but also the FEC and EPA; &c.

Anyone else?

Sure, there's demoting people for speaking out about Fast & Furious, there's harassment and firing of Inspectors General for doing their job and reporting corruption, waste, and abuse of power, and of course the "justice" department shrugging at voter intimidation by the Black Panthers...

And still more, like the closing of only GM and Chrysler dealerships belonging to GOP contributors. The fact that various departments are making their own laws without Congressional involvement.

I believe the list exceeds the "Usurpations" section of the Declaration by at least a country mile. Jefferson would have gotten writer's cramp long before he could finish this list of scandals.

All of this means nothing to our future amnestied voters. Back home it was much worse and everything is free here.

The Obama administration asked Rick Wagoner, the chairman and CEO of General Motors, to step down and he agreed, a White House official said. 3/30/2009

That to me was when the evil jinn was let loose upon America. Why did Mr. Wagoner not say, "F*@% you and the uninformed electorate you rode in on. I report to the GM shareholders!"? I think it was then that the Megalomaniac-in-Chief knew he would not be questioned. And from there, the brazenness only became worse.

@MathMom, perhaps Mr. Wagnoner had stronger physical persuasions from union thugs than ethical dilemmas to shareholders and non-union employees.
