President Obama claimed Sunday that his administration has not experienced any "major scandal" during his nearly eight years in office, despite constant protests from conservatives that he is swimming in scandals.
Obama made the claim during a campaign rally in Florida Sunday night, when he blasted Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for constantly attacking his administration.
"Here's a guy who called my administration perhaps the most corrupt in history — despite the fact that actually we have not had a major scandal in my administration," Obama said.
Republicans have argued for years now that the Obama administration has been plagued by several scandals, including many related to its failure to police itself and root out inept or corrupt federal officials.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said last year that Obama has presided over the "rise of the ineptocracy," and cited several related scandals.
These include papering over the Department of Veterans Affairs wait-time scandal, the IRS targeting scandal and the massive breach of federal data at the Office of Personnel Management, which saw the theft of records on 22.1 million people.
McCarthy cited the Department of Health and Human Service's loss of $3 billion in Obamacare subsidies, and a series of Secret Service mishaps.
Republicans have also argued that the State Department's resistance to handing over thousands of Hillary Clinton's private emails is an ongoing scandal, as is Obama's decision to draw down troops from the Middle East, which they say fueled the rise of the Islamic State.
The 2012 attack in Benghazi that left four Americans dead, and the government's "fast and furious" gun walking scandal are other events Republicans have said are major scandals that Obama oversaw.
