Call me old fashion but I believe an individual’s character is important. The person may dress in expensive clothes, drive nice car, and espouse big fancy words. None of those stands up to the person’s character when I decide if I can trust the person.
Lately, the 2016 US presidential nomination has produced quite a few examples of the kind of candidates or former candidates that I wouldn’t trust as far as I can throw them. It is appalling to me how people can turn 180 on a national stage in their words, positions or similar. And I am not talking about the front runners.
Case in point –
WASHINGTON – In March, Marco Rubio dismissed Donald Trump as a “con artist” and “the most vulgar person ever to aspire to the presidency.”
This past week, the Florida senator told reporters he’ll not only vote for Trump, he’d be willing to speak on his behalf at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer. And he didn’t rule out the possibility of serving in a Trump administration. Source: USA Today
Do these people have no worry about how their characters come across? Or do they think they can rationalize their way and convince the rest of the world that their character is in good standing?
Do you trust people who change their words according to which way the wind blows? How long would you give them to explain?
