We Need Integrity Back In This Country

Columnist Michael Goodwin recently wrote, “We are witnessing the making of a tragic history. The fact that America’s leader lacks credibility among friend and foe alike is creating peril without precedent. Absent a sudden stiffening of spine and a president whose word is his bond, the world is heading toward a catastrophe.

The definition of integrity, according to the dictionary is:

  1. The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
  2. The state of being whole and undivided.

It seems that integrity is a long gone quality in our country. Let’s face it, politicians were never known for being the most honest people, there was a survey out some time ago that found politicians were trusted less then used car salesmen and realtors. But we are now living in a time where politicians so blatantly lie to the American people, we have a leader, (and I use that term loosely) who has lied from the day he hit the campaign trail until present day, it seems that it is impossible for Obama to tell the truth on anything.

As I read that definition of the word integrity, I knew it did not describe Obama, Reid, or Pelosi, they obviously have no integrity and they do not seem to care. Let’s be truthful here, it doesn’t matter what side of the aisle you are on, all politicians fudge the truth for their own benefit, that is as old as politics itself. But it seems today, politicians just don’t care anymore, someone on the left lies, then they are beat-up by the right, someone on the right lies, then they are beat-up by the left. But no matter what, the wheel keeps spinning in Washington.

Abraham Lincoln, supposedly an Obama hero, warned about the corrosive effect of failing to be honest. As he famously put it, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.

New Benghazi e-mails are now coming out, they are just confirming what we already knew, that the Obama administration tried to cover-up the fact that it was a terrorist attack and not caused by a video. Do the lies from this administration ever stop, once you start lying, you have to lie to cover-up that lie, then lie to cover-up that lie and on and on, until the whole thing finally blows-up in their faces and we are heading to that point, finally. When confronted with the new e-mails, presidential lap dog Jay Carney said, “It is not about Benghazi — it is about the protests around the Muslim world.” You would think he would get tired of lying to the American people day after day.

We have a President who would not know the truth if he sat on it, I think he has been lying and getting away with it all his life, he knows no other way. We have a president, who I believe is the most incompetent and corrupt president that this country has seen in modern times. Jimmy Carter was incompetent, but this president has added corruptness to the equation as well. To all the people that voted for Obama, we tried to tell you what he was, but you just would not listen, now we are all paying the price.

If Obama had a thimble full of integrity, he would have a thimble full of integrity.

  1. A corrupt President is not the problem. An electorate with a majority lacking character and moral commitment have put a man in office that truly reflects their values. Obama is a symptom of the problem and certainly not the cause. He’s a man elected to office for the color of his skin and not the content of his character. The current generation, including mine, have no strong patriotic connection to American exceptionalism or even have a small understanding of the most basic American history. The disaster that lies ahead will come slowly and painfully, but it will come.

  2. A corrupt President is not the problem? Is that the same as saying to the man next to you when flying in a 747 at thirty thousand feet, that even though the pilot can’t fly its not the problem. Its the fools that put him there to begin with that’s our real issue. You see they have no basic facts about flying, its history or how good the airline needs exceptional flying skills for its pilots. But we’ll be just fine when they put our situation of an inevitable disaster on the ground. Obama is not a symptom he is a product of corrupt people with an agenda. If you enjoy that inevitability then I feel sad for your position. Bent over!

  3. First of all, I doubt that Obama even knows what a thimble is….nor what finger it goes on…Integrity, on the other hand, is learned from nurturing or reading more than a teleprompter…Both are lacking. And from the way Congress acts…Obama is contagious.

    We ‘re sitting on a time bomb…To snip the right wire it is imperative that every GOP voter (support) the candidate that is selected by the MAJORITY of the party & not cling to their ‘ideal’ choice It’s going to take all of us to pull this wagon before the bomb detonates.

    To lighten the mood…according to Jay Leno “It’s not looking good for Obama..today his teleprompter took the fifth”…….”The White House scandals aren’t going away anytime soom. It’s gotten so bad that people in Kenya are saying he’s 100% American””

    1. Jan, I have said many times, the reason why Obama won in 2012 was because of the people who stayed home because they didn’t think Romney was Conservative enough, those are the people I blame. We have to support who ever wins the nomination, if another Liberal gets in, you can ring the doomsday bell.
      Leno will be missed, those were good.
