Is President Obama Capable Of Honesty?
During Mr Obama's earlier State Of The Union address to Congress Rep Joe Wilson shouted "You Lie!" when Mr Obama stated that no federal funds were to be used for funding abortion. Of course, Rep Wilson was vilified by all except those who knew the President was, in fact, being much less than honest.
I could cite one example after another, but what makes me realize he is no more than a self aggrandizing politician is that when Seal Team Six took down America's Number One enemy he stepped right up and basked in the glory. Yes, he was the Commander in Chief at the time and gave the go ahead, but a couple excerpts by the President shows me his real character:
2008: "Navy SEAL Team 6 is Cheney's private assassination team."
2011: "I put together SEALTeam 6 to take out Bin Laden."
2008: "Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured alive and given a fair trial."
2011: "I authorized SEAL Team 6 to kill Bin Laden."
2008: " Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary, and the detainees should not be interrogated."
2011: "Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to our locating Bin Laden."
He could have minimized the event and simply allowed the Defense Department to make the announcement thereby reducing any risk of retribution to those actually involved, instead he chose otherwise. Perhaps if one of his daughters were crew members on those Blackhawks things would be different.
