Absolute Trust: Absolute Foolishness

Humans are difficult to trust. In fact, none of us are trustworthy 100% of the time. Yes, some come much closer than others, but the bottom line is that we are quite flawed, even when those flaws are small or largely not apparent to those who know us well.

Then, there is remarkable statement from a man who really should know better:

House Speaker John Boehner says he “absolutely” trusts President Barack Obama – not that they don’t have their differences.

Nothing like a little bi-partisan trust between colleagues. Mr. Boehner has spent too long in the swamp and it shows.
