President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” When President Obama leaves office, he will have nothing to fear but history.

Here are but a few scandals that have taken place on Mr. Obama’s watch: the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, the Associated Press-James Rosen investigation, the Benghazi murders and their subsequent cover-up, the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative organizations, the Veterans Affairs medical malfeasance, and the Obamacare deceptions and debacle. These are piling up higher than a pyramid. When the presidential power is gone, the administration’s acolytes will have nothing to fear. They can unburden themselves as the threat of retaliation disappears. Hopefully, the dirty laundry that will be exposed will awaken the American people to empty-suit politicians with exalted egos and socialist dreams.
