Letter to the editor: And so it goes; whom can you believe?

Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 12:01 am

“I’m not upset that you lied to me. I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.” — A wise voice from the past, when a person’s word was their bond.

And so it goes for the likes of President Obama; Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder; Press Secretary Jay Carney and all the recent congressional inquiry witnesses that, under oath, have either outright lied, taken the 5th, been cutesy, evasive, indifferent or hidden the truth on matters surrounding the Benghazi massacre, the vicious attack on the media and the disgusting IRS scandal. Administration “transparency” remains an ongoing joke on late-night television.

The president appears oblivious to it all. (“I don’t know a thing.”) He will soon start a nationwide campaign tour to tout the amazing benefits of Obamacare.

Does he hope to convince the vast majority of Americans who now oppose it? Wouldn’t his time and our taxpayer money be better spent (without polluting our air at great expense in Air Force 1) if he simply stepped into the Rose Garden and made one of his famous speeches, stating: “Dear Americans. I am sorry. The 21,200 page Obamacare is a total disaster. Not only will it destroy our health care as we now know and expect it, but it will also decimate the medical profession.

“Therefore, I request the Senate immediately bring forth to the floor for a vote the 24th House bill that will end Obamacare and preserve one of our vital last freedoms.”

And may the truth always prevail.
