No More Mr.Clean Inside The Scandal-Free Years Of Obamas Presidency
May 20, 2020
Authored by Bruce Wilds via Advancing Time blog,
For years former President Obama remained more or less off the grid. It could be argued that it is not uncommon for an ex-president to stay out of the limelight. Several Presidents have done this even claiming it was for the good of the country and in an effort not to interfere with the country moving forward. Obama has recently reemerged and injected himself into the public spotlight, at times taking aim at President Trump and the way his administration is handling various situations. It is not surprising that President Trump is not pleased.
While our memory has a way of removing rough edges from events we should not try to whitewash the past and rewrite history to present a different picture of what really happened. Because of the stark contrast in the demeanor and style of Trump and Obama, the media has photo shopped reality. Obama has been painted as, a thoughtful, intelligent, capable man full of hope and able to bring us together. He did, after all, bring Americas economy back from the brink of disaster following the Great Recession. Trump, on the other hand, is often portrayed as a divisive, dishonest, braggart, and a buffoon. The fact is during Obamas time as President the country suffered scandal upon scandal upon scandal, it might be fair to say we had scandals galore.
Mosul, Reduced To Rubble On Obamas Watch
And then, there was Mosul. The destruction of Mosul and the many lives lost there stand as a monument of Obamas failings. We should not forget that during Obamas watch the once-proud Iraqi city of Mosul was reduced to rubble. This was done as a coalition of anti- ISIS forces try to retake the city. The very roots of ISIS were fed by America and its botched policies. The saying, never throw stones if you live in a glass house would lead people to think Obama should have remained in the shadows.
Looking back, there were so many, big and small scandals such as the fast and furious, the operation that sent guns into the hands of drug gangs in Mexico, they became difficult to track. In Las Vegas, the GSA went on a spending spree. A large number of sexual assaults occurring in the military. Solyndra which should be placed in the dictionary and defined as what happens when politicians and bureaucrats play businessman with taxpayer money failed. The CIA had a prostitutes fiasco in South America. Fisker Automotive failed, this deal reeked of government cronyism and waste. Add to this what looked like a Benghazi coverup (including the way it was handled in the second presidential debate) add the DOJ doing an over the top and wiretapping the Associated Press.
Trump Will Leave None Of This Unaddressed
We should not forget some of the following if truth be told. The resurfacing of Mr. Obama and images of him opining with his chin tilted slightly upward motivated me to look back at some posts written during his time as President. Remember, because of his persona, a degree of optimism was in the air as he took office, across the world many people saw him as the answer to taking the whole world forward. Below are a few of those with links to the original as well as a few other comments on what history has revealed as major policy blunders flowing from his time in office.
