Obama At MIT: No Embarrassing Scandals

Former President Barack Obama dropped in at a sports analytics conference at MIT and defended his administration as scandal-free even while offering a revealing codicil to the defense.

The remarks were to be off-the-record but Reason magazine’s intrepid Robby Soave managed to obtain a copy of the tape. “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” former President Obama claimed, then added, “I know that seems like a low bar,” and, more tellingly, “Generally speaking, you didn’t hear about a lot of drama inside our White House.”

Can it be that during the Obama years, most journalists actually gave up “questioning authority”?
