Earth Heals, Oceans Recede, So Now It’s Time to Trust President Obama, Right?

“Obama: Anatomy of a World Leader,” by Alex Gray (detail)

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”
Barack Obama, June 3, 2008

Credibility is one of those things like virginity that you either have or you don’t, and President Obama lost his long ago:

President Obama will require intelligence agencies to obtain permission from a secret court before tapping into a vast trove of telephone data, but he will leave the data in the hands of the government for now, an administration official said.

After watching Obama’s speech today, I trust him as much as I ever did, which is say, I don’t trust him at all.

    I am still waiting form him to close Gitmo. Remember the “Fierce Moral Urgency” to close that facility.

    I didn’t watch the speech, so you need to clue me in. Did he say either “Let me be clear” or “Make no mistake” at any time? Because if he didn’t then he’s lying.

    On the other hand, if he did say it, then he’s lying.

  • Steve Skubinna

    Yeah, right. Says the guy who resigned when he was morally compromised and publicly exposed.

    Hey, wait a minute…

  • Steve Skubinna

    Come on, give the guy a break! He promised he’d shut it down during his first term, so he’s got how long left to do it?

    What? Why are you looking at me like that?

    At least I had enough honor to resin, unlike the current occupant of the WH.

    And compared to what these lawless idiots are doing – heck, there is no comparison.

    New rule, never elect anyone who says “I am absolutely certain..” especially in relation to themselves.
