The Patriot Post® · Fournier: Obama Destroyed Credibility of Government
National Journal writer Ron Fournier has long been a supporter of ObamaCare. But Jonathan Gruber’s inconvenient disclosures have made Fournier almost see a ray of light. “The problem is the central attribute you have to have as any leader, in any walk of life and certainly in government is trust,” Fournier said. “This president has destroyed the credibility of his administration himself and government itself.” We couldn’t have said it better. And for Fournier and his cohorts, that’s a huge problem – because they want Big Government to have credibility. “In the long run, as somebody who would like to see this bill work, I think they have really undermined it,” he added. “And it’s going to be harder to defend it.” Lies do have a tendency to reduce trust.
