Pres. Obama 0-7 with campaign promises.
During his campaign and early presidency, Obama said that if the stimulus package passed then the unemployment rate wouldn't go over 10%; well, it is now 10.2%.
President Obama promised to listen to his commanders on the ground in Afghanistan because that was where the real terrorists were. Well, the commanders are calling for more troops and President Obama is dragging his feet, while our troops are left without necessary backup.
President Obama said we know where Osama Bin Laden is and if he, Obama, was elected he would go after Bin Laden. Obama has been elected and we haven't even heard about Bin Laden.
President Obama made promises on Health Care Reform and he never even submitted a bill to Congress. And now we are learning that President Obama's version of Health Care Reform is just an new complicated Tax Bill.
President Obama promised passage of Climate Change legislation and to bring foreign nations on board, now we are seeing that APEC and other nations are in no way open to Climate Change legislation.
President Obama promised to close Guantanamo Bay and he hasn't been able to do it, some wonder if he had a plan on how to really get that done. We recently learned that his solution is to prosecute terrorists in our courts instead of military courts, Rudy Giuliani criticizes that decision. Has anyone thought that military soldiers don't read captured enemies and terrorists their Miranda rights, that's because they don't have those rights!
President Obama is feeling heat from all political fronts. It seems, even with Democratic control of Congress, President Obama hasn't kept one campaign promise. Ask yourself, what has President Obama accomplished while in office other than an honorary degree from Notre Dame and a Nobel Peace Prize?
