The Complete Collection: Obama’s Scandals, Gaffes, and Power-Grabs [UPDATED!]

‘We have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations’
By Grabien Staff



[UPDATE: This list is now being updated and maintained at]

As President Obama prepares to wrap up his time in office, he’s recently taken to saying he’s “extremely proud” to leave office without any scandals besmirching his tenure. His political adviser, Valerie Jarrett, said the same earlier this week.

“The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal,” Jarrett told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria matter-of-factly.

As ObamaCare now appears destined for the ash heap of history, the Obama Administration is clearly thinking about its legacy. And that likely explains the new talking point about Obama’s supposedly squeaky clean presidency.

What’s the reality?

As the news comes at us so quickly these days, it’s admittedly hard to keep track of everything that’s happened over the last eight years. The administration seems to recognize this. Whenever a scandal erupts, the strategy is delay, obfuscate, and punt until the matter fades into the slipstream of yesterday’s news. As Obama’s approval rating inched up toward the end of his time in office, his approach seems to be paying off.

To help refresh everyone’s memory, Grabien is now publishing what we think is the most exhaustively researched, chronologically comprehensive collection of every Obama scandal, gaffe, and constitutionally-questionable power grab.

As of this publication — which we plan to continue updating — the tally stands at: 764.

Each item in this report includes a source as well as a link to a third-party news site containing more information.

And even as we tried to be as comprehensive as possible, the federal government is massive and it’s impossible to catch everything. If you’re aware of a scandal we missed, write us at (and include a link for a corresponding news account). We’ll continue updating this list in the days ahead.
