Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says the scandals facing President Obama are all interrelated and can be traced back to two fatal flaws in his philosophy – the unfettered growth of the federal government and a basic mistrust of the American people.

“These scandals were bound to happen,” Jindal wrote in an op-ed piece for CNN.com.

“In fact, it was inevitable, and there will be more.

President Obama has grown the size, the scope, the debt and the power of the federal government to such irresponsible proportions that problems like these are an inevitable result.”

Jindal said even if Obama had no firsthand knowledge of the IRS witch-hunt, the seizure of phone records from The Associated Press or the confusion regarding Benghazi, the buck stops with him.

“We don't know what the president knew of these matters before they became public, and it strains credulity to suggest that his top political advisers were in the dark,” Jindal said.

“But again, when you grow government this big, these kinds of scandals are inevitable, and he bears the responsibility for that.”

Jindal believes these scandals are the result of Obama’s lack of competence and his liberal agenda.

“The Obama presidency, and liberalism in general, are based on not trusting the American people -- a belief that big government is better for people,” Jindal said.

“The latest scandals show why liberalism and big government don't work.

The scandals cut at the core ideology of the Obama presidency.

Indeed, these issues aren't just the failure of an individual, but the failure of a system in which liberals put too much trust in big government.”
