Obama on military, security turn her off

Trust in a commander-in-chief is very important. Forgetting for the moment the unfulfilled promises President Obama made in 2008, recent events show him not telling the truth to the American people. I have chosen only two instances.

The president said in the debates the U.S. Navy has the right number of ships. That is incorrect, both the chief of Naval operations and the secretary of the Navy are recently quoted as saying we do not have enough ships to do what is required of the Navy.

Also in the debates, the president never answered the question about the Benghazi embassy's request for help. The terrible results of not giving permission to help the ambassador, and the president's lie about the event was absolutely irresponsible.

For commander-in-chief, I want someone who can be trusted, and is really able to lead and protect our nation and its representatives.
