Truth of the matter
To the Editor:
Imagine, “We the People” of the United States of America believe and entrust our Commander in Chief to always tell us the truth concerning all governing matters. We assume this to be self-evident, but not always necessarily true.
Case in point, President Barack Obama tells us unequivocally that the Benghazi attack was the result of a mocking Muslim video, when the truth of the matter is it was a well documented terror attack. There is absolutely not a “smidgen” of corruption with the IRS scandal, when the truth of the matter is emails and cell phone conversations document the opposite. President Obama stated, with the rollout of Obamacare, that you could keep your current health care and retain your doctor – period! We know for sure today that isn’t true! Our president recently told the American public that he found out about the VA scandal in the news. The truth of the matter is our commander in chief campaigned in 2008 on the platform of “fixing” the broken VA.
I suggest to President Obama that when he discusses national policies to the American citizens, he might consider putting his right hand on a Bible. “I promise to tell the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth, so help me God!” I’d rather be truthful and respected than lie and be liked for political gain.
