Posts Tagged ‘When a President Can’t Be Taken at His Word’

Trust is a transaction between leaders and those they lead.  Throughout our history, the deeply held beliefs of various Presidents have taken the nation into war, delayed the pursuit of peace, alienated allies, appeased enemies.  At other times, presidential beliefs have conquered the continent, freed the slaves, taken us to the moon because the President firmly believed we could get there.  As citizens, it is vital that we be able to believe our President; it is also vital that we know what he believes, and why.  This President has made both a severe challenge.
