Can’t trust Obama

To the Editor:

Red line. No line. If you have followed our president closely, one truth stands out: Barack Obama doesn’t tell the truth.

He says he’s for us. Yet his actions demonstrate the opposite. He has weakened our national security. He has shown to be sympathetic toward our enemies. Our allies are not comfortable that this president will have their backs when he doesn’t for his own country.

Consider Syria and Afghanistan. Does any commander in chief tell our enemies what exactly our gameplan will be? Obama does. Remember “Fast and Furious” and Benghazi? Calls for help denied. Incomprehensible. His explanation crafted in deception. Now, they are full-blown cover-ups.

He assures us the investigations are still ongoing. His administration tells us to “move on.” What about our national debt? Obama promised to cut the debt in half. Instead, he has added $6 trillion.

The truth about Obamacare is just now surfacing. Can we trust him? Sadly, no.
