To the editor:
Does anyone believe anything that our current administration is telling us? Stephanie Cutter, one of President Obama’s campaign managers, was finally forced to stipulate, on CNN, that the reduction in “rates” as part of Gov. Romney’s tax proposals would not cost $5 trillion, thereby dispelling the “liar, liar, pants on fire” argument by the White House after the first presidential debate.
Vice President Biden, in his debate, flatly lied about the HHS mandate and its requirements on religious institutions and was rebuked by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The story of the terrorist attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, has been told, rewritten, changed, told again, and now, finally, what the White House means is that specifically the president and the vice president did not know that Ambassador Stevens had requested additional security. We are supposed to believe that the intelligence coming out of Benghazi was initially flawed, but our intelligence is not flawed when it comes time to knowing whether Iran is almost nuclear armed. Really?
When held accountable by anyone, this administration has pointed the finger at anyone and anything but themselves. It would be refreshing for this president to stand up like a man and say, “This was my fault.” Here’s a question for all of you parents. What does your child look like when they are not telling you the truth? Answer: Barack Obama during the first presidential debate.
