Trusting President Obama

The mullahs in Iran are well aware that Barack Obama is a weakened president.

At this point the trust factor is going against the president. 

A recent Quinnipiac poll asked registered voters, who do you trust more to make decisions that are good for the country, President Obama or the Republicans in Congress?

  • Forty-two percent say Obama.
  • Forty-seven percent say Republicans.
  • Eleven percent don't know.

A Fox poll recently asked, do you think "honest" describes President Obama or not?

  • Yes it does, 43%.
  • No it doesn't, 54%.
  • Don't know, 3%.

Also, about a third of registered Republican voters say President Obama is more of an imminent threat to America than Vladimir Putin.

So it seems Mr. Obama has a trust deficit right now.

That makes negotiating anything much harder for the USA.

Again, the Iranian mullahs who are tyrants and human rights violators well understand that Mr. Obama needs a deal with them.

Another failure in foreign policy will erode the president's standing even further.

So there is deep suspicion among many Americans that any deal with Iran will be bad for us.

And no matter what Secretary of State Kerry brings back, that suspicion will remain.

When Barack Obama took office, the nation was filled with hope that a young politician would bring creative solutions to vexing problems.

Instead Mr. Obama has tried to impose an ideological agenda.

That has alienated the opposing party, Republicans, and brought the nation into political conflict.

Recently I asked former Congressman Barney Frank what President Obama's main domestic accomplishments have been outside of Obamacare, which is still being litigated, and the economy.

By the way, I noted to Mr. Frank that American workers are still earning significantly less than they did six years ago, so all economic analysis is subjective.

Barney Frank could not name another accomplishment.

Then I asked two Democrat foreign policy experts to name Mr. Obama's primary accomplishment overseas.

They came up with Myanmar -- Burma -- that's it.

So if all Americans step back and take a hard look at the Obama administration, there don't seem to be many achievements.

There is, however, chaos overseas and a lack of trust at home.

It is a sad state of affairs when thugs in Iran have more power at the negotiating table than the United States of America.

And that's the memo.
