TRUST. It's a short word with a lot of impact; a word that holds more meaning than any other one word in the English language.
Trust is defined as:
1 a : to place confidence b : to be confident ; HOPE 2 : to sell or deliver on credit 1 a : to commit or place in one's care or keeping : entrust b ; to permit to stay or go or do something without fear or misgiving 2 a : to rely on the truthfulness or accuracy of : BELIEVE b: to place confidence in : to rely on c : to hope or expect confidently 3 : to extend credit to – trust-abil-i-ty"
Just recently, Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner stated:
"And one of the biggest obstacles we face is the one of trust. And the American people, including many of my members, don't trust that the reform that we're talking about will be implemented as it was intended to be. The president seems to change the health care law on a whim whenever he likes. And now he's running around the country telling everyone that he's going to keep acting on his own, keeps talking about his phone and his pen. And he's feeding more distrust about whether he's committed to the rule of law."
This is a bad predicament. It makes the individual, Barack Obama, to be shown as an individual who cannot be trusted with anything since no one knows if what he states is true or not.
Now, let us go back and see if we can find out just where any trust in Obama was lost. We have to go back to the first problem Obama had while he is in office, and that would be the gun running scheme that is now called, "Fast and Furious." Right out of the gate, Obama began to lose trust by saying this was a problem handed down to him from the Bush administration, even though the action took place after he was sworn into office. That was the first act of falsehood, resulting in a lack of trust. Just check out an earlier article about Obama's lies.
From there, the next big problem that Obama had, perhaps the largest lack of trust ever displayed by any president is the huge case of Benghazi. Obama attempted to play down with outright lies about the attack being a reaction to a video. Even after he was told it was a terrorist attack, he continued to perpetrate the lie and had his administration push the lie as well. Incredibly, Obama's own State Department then sought to put their claims concerning a video down the memory hole, even though Hillary Clinton spent $70 million in taxpayer money to apologize to the people of Pakistan for the video. Any trust in Obama at this point was completely destroyed. How could anyone come out and say this was due to a video when nearly every intelligent individual with at least half a brain could well see that it was a terrorist attack? The answer as to why Obama could not bring himself to stating what it really was goes right back to that little word trust! Obama was up for re-election and had told the American people the "Al-Qaeda is on the run." To admit that al-Qaeda was behind the attacks would have compromised that claim.
Obama's trust issue seems to just get worse with each passing problem. The abuse of the IRS is another example, in which he came out and said it was just some knucklehead that went off the beaten track, even though recent investigations now show that this may well lead to the very door step of the White House. However, once again, Obama seems to say, "Trust me" like a used car salesman trying to sell the worst car on the lot! It seems that no matter what happens during Obama's term of office, the fault is not his because he says so. Obama attempts to pass it on to something or someone that is not connected to him nor to his office.
Finally, with the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, Obama clearly tries to move from what he stated removing all doubt that the President of the United States cannot be trusted for anything! Over 5 million people now know that when Obama made the statements,
"If you have a health plan you can keep that plan, period!"
"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period!"
Trust is eliminated from this issue altogether, as these statements were outright lies! If Obama cannot freely admit that he lied through his teeth when he made those statements, then any type of trust is clearly removed from the man who occupies the Oval Office. Now if WE THE PEOPLE cannot trust Obama, then how in the world can any leader from any nation trust him? Obama does what Obama wants to do and not what the Constitution demands nor what the people want. This is not what our nation deserves nor is it what we should allow. Meanwhile, the world laughs at our dilemma since our nation is being torn apart at the seams by this one man who simply cannot be trusted.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
