Trust Obama? No way

In one section of his column (“Health care reform inching toward consensus,” The Signal, Aug. 23), Dr. Bruce Hector asks if we shouldn’t trust Obama to make the right choices for us regarding health care.

Hell, no, we shouldn’t trust him.

What Obama says and what he does are polar opposites. The details of his “plan” have changed and morphed almost daily. He denies his own words when they become inconvenient.

He has done this throughout his campaign and his presidency. He has an entire army of spin doctors “explaining” what he actually meant — as though we were dim-witted children who need to be talked to slowly.

When Rhaim-ming this through before the August break didn’t work, he wanted to have “a meaningful dialogue without all the shouting.” What has not been said is that the people were shouting because talking quietly was being ignored either with dismissive laughter or with harsh ridicule.

When the public option became a public relation problem, it morphed into “just a sliver.”

When the single-payer system became a non-starter, Obama denied ever saying it. But there he is, plain as day in 2006, making that exact statement on television.

If this seems strangely familiar, it’s because you witnessed the same move on the born-alive infant protection act, NAFTA, Iran, etc.

When all else failed he went back to his familiar Chicago-style thug politics. He or the DNC or his water carriers in the MSM vilified the American people attending town hall meetings, calling them everything from Nazis to Klansmen or saying “they are just Astroturf.”

Well, none of the people I know who attended these meetings were hired from Craig’s List.

This is not over. However benign the next alteration appears, whatever slick packaging is presented, the end result will be a single-payer, government-run program for everyone — except of course for the members of our government.

Trust him? Hell, no.
