Year end review of top stories dogging Obama

See also

With 2013 in the history books, many Americans are already saying good riddance. The year was stuffed with government spying on American citizens; government shut downs and of course the disastrous roll out of Obamacare.

“If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan, period,” turned out to be the year's biggest lie.

And let's not forget the National Security Agency scandal that continues to make headlines thanks to Edward Snowden's document leak. The denial highlight came in an exchange with Oregon Democrat Senator Ron Wyden. He asked National Intelligence Director James Clapper a straightforward question: “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans? 'No, sir... not wittingly. There are cases where we would inadvertently, perhaps, collect info, but not wittingly.'” Of course that statement turned out to be hogwash and Americans continue to hound the Obama administration.

Those were a few of the stories that captured headlines in 2013. But will they play a significant political role in 2014 or will they fizzle like yesterday’s champagne?
