Obama's policy record really, truly stinks

The stench emanating from the White House and this administration is reminiscent of a dumpster behind a seafood restaurant after a long, hot weekend. The “most transparent administration in history” has brought us the Fast and Furious and IRS scandals, the VA scandal, social engineering of our military, legitimization of Black Lives Matter, the current state of race relations and false narratives as perceived by this administration, a Department of Justice with selective prosecutions, cabinet members who ignore congressional subpoenas, a disregard of our immigration laws, the circumventing of the Supreme Court,  continued commutation of sentences, total disrespect towards our strongest Middle East ally, Israel, the Iran nuclear deal, the questionable ransom payment to the terrorist regime in Iran, and on and on.

Those of us who challenge this administration are continually called liars or racists. As President Obama says, let me be perfectly clear; we are neither liars nor racists, we are "We the People."
