Some Democrats simply refuse to live in reality. Senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett recently claimed that Obama’s presidency has been free of scandal. IRS? Benghazi? Targeting of Journalists? Hello???
The New York Post reports:
Obama’s closest adviser says president has been scandal-free
Scandal, what scandal?
President Obama has been squeaky clean, according to his closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett.
“The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself,” Jarrett said in an interview broadcast on CNN Sunday.
The aide, also a close friend of Obama and his wife, Michelle, credited the first couple with being good people and getting good results.
“That’s because that’s who he is — that’s who they are — and I think that’s what really resonates with the American people,” Jarrett said.
Critics of the Obama administration said Jarrett was trying to rewrite history.
“This is delusional,” said Tom Fitton, president of the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, which has filed numerous lawsuits to illuminate many of the Obama administration’s shortcomings.
It comes down to one of two things. Either Valerie Jarrett is stupid or she thinks the American people are dumb enough to believe her.
Obama’s presidency was not scandal free, no matter what Jarrett says.
