Just keep saying it over and over. It's a belief system.

Is there any part of the Obama CIA/DOJ/StateDept that wasn't terminally incompetent or corrupt?

Headline at link.

GOP Senate report says Obama officials gave Iran access to U.S. financial system

Meanwhile who said "8 Years Scandal Free" ? Lina Dunham? BJ Groethe? Some jadrool you argue with on Facebook?

Just this nobody:
“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” Obama said. Sure, there were occasional mistakes and screw-ups, “but there wasn’t anything venal in eight years.”

So the exact quote from Obama isn't "8 Years Scandal Free" but "We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us". And I never heard "8 Years Scandal Free" precisely so formulated because I don't do Facebook.

See how much better life is when you don't do Facebook? 8)

He and his cronies have been spewing that for quite a while, and you don't have to be on Facebook to see it.
Former White House press secretary Jay Carney told CNN Tuesday that the Obama administration was coming to an end completely "scandal-free."

Appearing on "New Day,” Carney told anchor Alisyn Camerota that President Obama's tenure in the White House was exemplary from both a personal and professional perspective.

“Beyond having a scandal-free presidency in terms of personal-life scandals, what do you think President Obama’s legacy is?” Camerota asked.

“I think that it was scandal-free beyond his personal life,” Carney said. “The man’s integrity, his decency and optimism about America that he embodied and pursued will be his legacy.”
