I’m sure that most people with a normally functioning mind can tell the difference between the truth and a lie. That’s why I have a serious problem with President Obama’s idea of the truth (“When Obama mails it in,” Web, July 26).

Mr. Obama has been running around the country giving speeches that were supposed to inspire and excite the people about getting our economy back on track. Instead of offering solutions, all he has done is insult our intelligence and blame the Republicans for the bad state of affairs our country is in. Not only does he insult us, but he has the unmitigated gall to say that the recent scandals under his administration are “phony,” implying they don’t exist.

Mr. Obama has the audacity to make it seem as if the Benghazi attack in Libya that led to the deaths of four Americans, including our ambassador to Libya, never happened. In his diatribe of ignorance, he basically blew off the IRS, NSA, Fast and Furious and New Black Panthers Party scandals, too, telling the masses these are all trumped-up distractions the Republicans are harping on, keeping the economy from picking up.

From my perspective, Mr. Obama has been the problem, not the solution. His priorities are convoluted at best. He mocks big scandals of his administration’s making, showing he doesn’t care about the millions of Americans the scandals affected. His solutions are nonexistent. He just goes out and campaigns as if he were still running for office. It’s a sad commentary to watch our country being led by a snake-oil salesman.
