Ron Fournier: Obama Will 'Pay' for Scandals Eventually

By Greg Richter   |  

President Barack Obama's administration thinks it can continue ignoring scandals such as the IRS targeting of conservatives because it hasn't perceived any price has been paid, says National Journal's Ron Fournier.

"They think they've skirted by on these scandals," because Obama hasn't been impeached, Fournier said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record With Greta Van Susteren."

But there are consequences, Fournier argued: Obama's credibility and personal approval ratings have tanked.

"He's going to pay for this in the long term," Fournier said.

But The New York Times' Michael Shear wasn't so sure.

The discussion was based on Thursday's action placing former Homeland Security acting Inspector General Charles Edwards on administrative leave for allegedly delaying investigations to help senior White House officials and sitting on knowledge of the 2012 Secret Service scandal.

The public's attention span in "this Internet-fueled world" is so short, Shear argued, that the White House is counting on putting Edwards on administrative leave, and the next day "we'll be on to the next story."
