Obama Again Scoffs at ‘Phony Scandals’ Most Americans Think Are Real

27 June 2014 / 24 Comments

President Obama is back on the road complaining that Republican lawmakers offer nothing but “cynicism and fear and frustration,” as they focus more on “phony scandals” than the needs of the American people.

It’s become his standard pitch to big-ticket Democratic donors like the ones who paid between $10,000 and $32,400 to attend a fundraiser in Minneapolis at the home of Democratic power couple Sam and Sylvia Kaplan for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

After regaling the wealthy crowd with tales of his own struggles as a member of the middle class, Obama turned his attention to congressional Republicans.

“That’s what we should be talking about every day in Washington,” he said, referring to the struggles of those less wealthy than the donors he was addressing, such as Rebekah Erler, whom he visited with earlier in the day.

“We talk about everything else. … We talk about phony scandals, and we talk about Benghazi, and we talk about polls, and we talk about the Tea Party, and we talk about the latest controversy that Washington has decided is important.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
