The other day, a friend, who was fretting about the polls, said we need a scandal in the Obama administration for Romney to have a chance. I reminded this friend that we have already had not one Obama scandal but many: Fast and Furious, the doubling of costs under ObamaCare, the Libya debacle and coverup, 43 straight months of joblessness over 8 percent, the president not knowing that the national debt is $16 trillion, the president’s personal profligacy with taxpayers’ money, trillion-dollar deficits, the Fed’s dangerous printing of money, the president’s skipping of the daily intelligence briefings, etc. Instead, all we get is incessant clucking about Romney’s “47 percent” comment. We don’t need a scandal; we need a press corps.
