I think these episodes qualify as scandals, even if Obama doesn't

To The Daily Sun,

Yesterday the president gave what may have been his longest speech ever but did he say anything really new? If he did I must have missed it by dozing off now and then. Shame on me, but now that I think on it, I think he may have added a little twist on his usual spiel. He made quite a point of taking offense at "phony scandals". Now I wonder just what he meant by that? Could it be that the "Fast and Furious" gun running episode never really happened? Were the two hundred plus dead Mexicans and one of our boarder agents killed not a scandal? Did Eric Holder's lying to Congress then the president giving him cover of executive privilege not qualify as a scandal? And how about Benghazi? Now it was reported that our ambassador and three other Americans were killed there, not so? And what about that YouTube video lie every one from Obama on down was promoting for two weeks after? Guess that doesn't count either? Now surely the IRS being corrupted, not by a couple of rogue agents but from at least as high up as the legal counselor, appointed by the president, to the IRS, surely that must be? Could it be that witnesses questioned by Congress "couldn't remember" or taking the fifth means nothing? And Mrs. Clinton saying, "What does it really matter?"
Well I think all of these qualify as scandals in spite of the president's wishful thinking. And you know what, I think it does matter in spite of what Hillary said, trying to weasel out of her responsibility. Every one of the president's men and women have shown themselves to be unfit to serve, and many should be charged and prosecuted because real crimes have been committed by them in the name of the American people and I take offense at that.
