Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
On December 13, former vice president, Joe Biden, appeared on CBS with the hosts of “This Morning” where he peddled his new book and showered his former boss with praise. During the course of the interview, he was asked about his relationship with Obama and responded with the following; “I’ve served with eight presidents and I’ve gotten to know four of them very well. I’ve never met any president that has more character, more integrity, and more backbone than this guy does.” Then he went completely off the rails when he absurdly added; “And eight years, not a hint — not a hint — of a scandal.” [Editor: True, a hint barely covers it. More like an avalanche of destruction.]
What was perhaps even more outrageous than the statement itself was the fact that none of This Morning’s hosts challenged the veracity of that statement and allowed it to pass without a scintilla of scrutiny, exposing yet again an extreme bias existing within elements of the establishment media. In fact, the Obama administration was among the most corrupt and scandal-ridden in recent memory. Biden’s comment merits further examination so let’s buckle up and take a stroll down memory lane.

Solyndra Scandal – The Obama administration provided this failing solar company with a $535 million stimulus-funded loan, courtesy of the American taxpayer. Taxpayer money kept pouring in despite the fact that the Office of Management and Budget warned that Solyndra was not a profitable or viable company. But it gets worse. The family foundation of billionaire George Kaiser, an Obama fundraiser, was one of Solyndra's main investors. Can you say quid pro quo?
[Editor: When is a scandal not a "hint of a scandal?" When the MSM refuses to call it by it's name - scandal - ore even report on it.]

Thanks. Link fixed.
Lays it out very cleanly. One can only hope that at least some of these dregs of humanity will be properly and publicly brought to heel for, say, 20 years or so?
Come to think of it, I was being chintzy. Let's make it 30 to life, eh?
Spit on his portrait when you go to the White House.
Sorry, Larry, my spit is too valuable to me to waste like that. :P
Good article. Well written and well documented. I really appreciate it.
