Has President Obama Lost Credibility and Trust of Americans?

Remarks made by President Obama in recent speeches have some asking if he has lost some of his credibility, if not all of it. Obama’s latest comments calling the IRS, Benghazi, AP and NSA scandals “phony scandals” haven’t helped.

What’s phony about the IRS scandal? They admitted right away that they targeted Conservative groups. Benghazi is not phony; it’s been proven that the deaths of four Americans wasn’t because of a video and that help wasn’t sent when it was requested.

There’s also nothing phony about what we’ve learned about the National Security Agency. Whistleblower Eric Snowden made sure of that.

The Washington Post notes what Obama said in a national security speech a few weeks ago:

When I came into this office, I made two commitments that are more important than any commitment I made: Number one, to keep the American people safe; and number two, to uphold the Constitution. And that includes what I consider to be a constitutional right to privacy and an observance of civil liberties.

Some argue that President Obama tilts in the direction of national security rather than the civil liberties and privacy of Americans when he decides that it’s necessary, but there is even doubt about that.

Securing our borders should be high priority, as Obama puts it, to “keep the American people safe.” Detractors argue that allowing 11 million people who have entered the US illegally to become American citizens won’t keep Americans safe. Why won’t he secure the borders now, they ask.

Recent poll results illustrate that Obama has definitely lost support. According to a poll from CNN, for the first time in Obama’s presidency more than half of the public doesn’t feel that the president is honest and trustworthy.
