Obama Ratings Sink As Trustworthiness
Comes Into Question

National Public Radio, by Alan Greenblatt

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 11/2/2013 10:27:50 AM

Barack Obama has been subjected to as many personal attacks as any modern president. Terrorist. Traitor. Hater of America. Secret Muslim. Unusually for a politician, however, the one thing he hasn´t been called much is a liar, except by his most adamant critics. That´s all changed now. Obama is being widely called out for having claimed, repeatedly, that under the Affordable Care Act, people who liked their health insurance plans could keep them. This was a key selling point. Yet it has turned out not to be true for everyone in the individual insurance market.

Do you get the message here? Poor Obama. He´s been called everything in the book. So, the writer wishes us to believe, "liar" should be ignored.

Typical NPR drivel and Obama pandering.

FTA: "he hasn´t been called much is a liar, except by his most adamant critics"

If someone calls you an extremist when you are 100% accurate, then it is actually they who are the extremists.

You hear that MSM - you, yes you are the extremists. Take a deep breath and admit it.

No President has said "I didn´t know" more frequently than Obama. And no President has had more scandals swirling around him during their presidency.

Wake up MSM, he has NO credibility.

Obama has been using deception from an early age to get what he wants and has grown into a master.
Holy Scripture describes what deception is, how it´s done and how we can recognize it when we see it.
The same goes for recognizing good from evil and right from wrong.

Therein lies the problem with those on the Left, they have no use for God or scripture. They do what they think is right in their own eyes or vote for people they believe will do what is right. They think they are doing what is good for America, but because they are spiritually dead and can´t discern right from wrong, they don´t know when they are being deceived. You could say they are spiritual dead people being deceived into voting for liars and thieves who are also spiritual dead; and the whole nation falls into the ditch.

Scripture also tells us, "there is a way that seems right unto man, but the end is the way of death." Proverbs 14:12

The world believes it knows better than God what is good for humanity. But the end is clearly seen in history... and we are repeating it.

I think, and this all started with Hillary Clinton, that the "Progressives" found that they could strong arm peons in the government once they got into power into releasing investigative information on their "enemies lists" and it has been down hill from there. Am I right, Chief Justice Roberts?

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy.

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.
