Really?  Well that's GREAT to know.

It's not about trust. We vote for those we feel will most closely match our views, and push our interests.

I voted Obama for that reason, and since Romney is the absolute opposite of what I believe in, Obama will get my vote again.

It's that simple.

 

As far as politicians go, yes.  Although I think a lot of the truth is hidden from public view with every administration.  Not so much that they lie, some do, but that they don't always tell the whole story.

No.

I know it's nothing to do with me, but I just want to say I was disappointed and viewed him with fresh eyes when I heard he had lifted the hunting ban on wolves in Idaho & Montana...

I love wolves :(

I trust no politician.

:)

Nope.

I love him.

Bowing to the Emperor of Japan and the King of Saudi Arabia was pretty embarrassing, but he really went off the deep end when he bowed to the President of China on US soil.

The man lies through his teeth. Did you hear his little speech about Health Care  in the Supreme Court? About the 'human element' that makes the bill worthy? He took Constitutional Law, so he's not stupid... he's deceptive.

I don't trust him any more than I trust any other politician.

I find more truth in Obama than I do in any of the procession of Republicans into this campaign year -- and that includes some of the new governorships acquired.  We've got a governor in Florida who, in months before running for governor was part of a corporation that was fined some 1.7 million for Medicare fraud; a governor in Wisconsin who is part of an investigation; a governor in New Jersey who, just today, was found to have misrepresented the truth about the cost of a new commuter train project he killed, citing an expense that the GAO (government accounting office) found to be way overflated; a former governor in Nevada who had to resign due to a sex scandal (2010 - 2011), and who was informed by a former senator of Pennsylvania that the government Ethics Committee was going to be prosecuting him and was alerted to this and so resigned before he could be prosecutred.  Now, all of these individuals are Republicans.  What ethics violation, government accounting violation, defrauding violation, sex scandal, love child scandal, or even multiple marriage issues can one put on President Obama?  Sure, there are likely things all politicians are guilty of, but we can be fairly sure that if a member of a given political party has something to hide, members of the other political party will find out about it and make it public.  So, why haven't any official charges or scandals befallen President Obama?  They call him a Chicago poltician.  What does that mean?  So was Mitt Romney.  They link him to Saul Alinsky when, actually, Saul Alinsky and Mitt Romney's father can be reliably linked.  There are the 'birther' issues.  Nothing can be found by any government official to be reliable proof of his not being born an American citizen, and I am sure that aside from the allegations, if the other political party could come up with something substantive they certianly would have done so by now. Still, it is all allegations and nothing of proof like with the ethics violations, the fines issued due to defrauding activities, the questions and findings from the government accountability office, etc.  And, there is nothing in President Obama's personal history that is anything less than moral when it comes to his family life and personal habits, is there?  It all makes me wonder, you know?

No. I generally don't trust politicians anyway, but let's just say I didn't vote for him last election and I don't plan on it this time either.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
