If you define scandals as political lies, flipflops, and exaggerations, then you have a point, but then of course we can point to Romney's numerous lies, flipflops, and exaggerations. I suppose, though, from your ideological perspective you might hold Republicans politicians to a lower standard than you hold Democrats.
But, overall, the only corruption in the Obama administration did not amount to much: Fast & Furious, GSA, and you can keep your fingers crossed that the Benghazi scandal will turn up something good, but so far it doesn't really seem like a scandal. But perhaps that giant R burning in the fires of hell some might find too blinding to see the truth.
Here's a link to Romney's 533 lies, though it's a little outdated and may not include the lies in made in September and October. I could have posted them, like you posted the ones by Obama, but this list is far too long to post
For myself I don't associate Obama and the word scandal. He's been naive at times and perhaps bullied by his own party early on but not a scandal type of man IMO. i have some issues with him in a few other areas but for the most part his administration has been decent.
for the record I do not look at Benghazi as a scandal. I do look at it as some people over stepped their bounds, maybe some hidden facts but not scandal IMO.

After leaving the closed-door hearing, King spoke with reporters for several minutes about Petraeus’ statements. Rice’s television appearances were among the topics discussed, leading King to indicate that while Petraeus did not personally write Rice’s talking points, the CIA did approve them:
Q: Did he say why it was taken out of the talking points that was Al Qaeda affiliated?
KING: He didn’t know.
Q: He didn’t know? What do you mean he didn’t know?
KING: They were not involved — it was done, the process was completed and they said, “Ok go with those talking points.” Again it’s interagency — I got the impression that 7, 8, 9 different agencies.
Q: Did he give you the impression that he was upset it was taken out?
Q: You said the CIA said “OK” to the revised report –
KING: No, well, they said in that, after it goes through the process, they OK’d it to go. Yeah, they said “Okay for it to go.”

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.
But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government
The Qatari assistance to fighters viewed as hostile by the United States demonstrates the Obama administration’s continuing struggles in dealing with the Arab Spring uprisings, as it tries to support popular protest movements while avoiding American military entanglements. Relying on surrogates allows the United States to keep its fingerprints off operations, but also means they may play out in ways that conflict with American interests.
Oh, the Benghazi thing is b.s. and it's going nowhere. The Republicans are running for cover while they try to figure out how to get their act together. The outrage against Benghazi is bs. Quadaffi is dead, and as Petreus explained the CIA held back its cards (though revealed in classified documents that terrorists were involved) when Benghazi first happened so as to continue gathering intelligence (according to the NYT story on the Petreus testimony). At any rate, any Republicans who seriously think the Obama administration, which has been almost impeccably clean, did anything corrupt here, are probably among those losers who felt certain Romney would win. In my opinion, Benghazi is 99% a desperate attempt by an increasingly irrevelant party to buy time while it tries to modernize. I don't think anyone but Tea Partiers are focused on the Benghazi scandal. There's no smoking gun.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh maybe it will all go away, MSNBC and the rest of our media will help us keep it quiet.
A disgusting disgrace that would have Haunted GW Bush for the rest of his days.

Somebody brought up a great question last note on Bill O.
Nobody has aked what was Ambassodor Stevens doing in Benghazi in the first place.Why wasn't he sent back to Tripoli after begging for more security before 9/11?
The other thing is we are now finding out that these attacks were done with American weapons provided by the Obama administration.
Another thing is, how come you leftist aren't asking the question why haven't there been any arrest of the killing of the four Americans but a home film maker remains in jail?
Compare what the media has done with this story up against what they did to the Trayvon Martin case.
