Thursday letters: President Obama can’t be trusted

Obama First President Bush

CAROLYN KASTER — AP

As an independent voter, I can’t understand how Democrats and Republicans can stand by and do nothing about a president who blatantly lies to the American people.

President Obama said he would get to the bottom of the Benghazi incident and bring justice to those killed, but instead he and his administration have blocked the committees investigating at every turn. Instead of firing UN Ambassador Susan Rice for lying about what caused the assault, he promoted her.

He said he would get to the bottom of the IRS incident because the American people were mistreated, and then employees at the top level took the Fifth.

Recently, President Obama went on tour supposedly to talk about the economy, but he couldn’t resist blaming the Republicans for our sad state of affairs. He had the unmitigated gall to call these scandals “phony” and call them the reason the economy was so poor. This despicable act of disrespect for our dead and grieving families should not be tolerated.

Obama has shown by deed that he can’t be trusted.
