Is Obama Trustworthy?

___for the first time in Quinnipiac polling, more voters say the President is not trustworthy. The new survey was conducted last week and over the weekend, mostly after Obama offered an apology on Thursday to people who are losing their insurance because of changes from the federal health care law.

When selling health care reform in his first term, the President repeatedly assured Americans they could keep their plans, if they liked them. However, that has not turned out to be the case, with some Americans holding certain plans getting cancellation notices from their providers.

According to the poll, a majority of voters, 52%, say the President is not honest and trustworthy, compared to 44% who say the opposite. It's the first time in Quinnipiac history that the president's trustworthy numbers are underwater.

This was a pretty small lie, along the lines of "read my lips, no new taxes." He might have deliberately lied because politicans have to in order to get anything done, or he might just have been wrong. Anyway, I like my plan, so I kept it.

All politicians lie so I don't really care... having said that, I doubt you'd think it's a pretty small lie if you were one of the 4-5 million who lost their coverage.

Why don't they just get a job that offers insurance that isn't crappy enough to be illegal?

In general I can trust him to an extent. I can trust him to do small things such as going to the store or ironing his suit, but managing affairs over seas and creating plans for the economy are things I have a lack of trustworthiness in.

I agree with you, Hellno. He has let me down. I have to admit I was caught up in the "hype" and expected positive change. This did not occur.

He's a politician, so of course he's not trustworthy. He lies all the time. They all do.

They put in rules in Obamacare to make a minimum for what needs to be covered which means he must know that plans will have to be dropped because they don't meet the requirements. That, or he was too dumb to know that the rules cause current plans to not be allowed, which means he is too dumb to trust.

Did he lie?

I don't think many politicians are. They all primarily do things for their own interests.
