Broken Promises – Quick Reminder

Just in case you forgot the long list of promises that The Once, Barack Obama, has broken, here is a reminder from our friends at National Review Online:

Really? Governor Romney has to worry about being attacked for inconsistency by a president who

  • attacked Hillary Clinton for supporting the individual mandate
  • who promised all of the health-care negotiations would be on C-SPAN
  • who said that anyone making less than $250,000 wouldn’t see his taxes raised a dime
  • who now is a fan of recess appointments
  • who pledged to close Guantanamo Bay within one year
  • who pledged to renegotiate NAFTA
  • who pledged a net spending cut
  • who said he would press the Chinese on human rights
  • who said he wouldn’t allow lobbyists to work in his White House
  • who pledged to avoid bringing “the same Washington players” into his administration
  • who promised to post every law on the White House website for five days before signing it
  • who pledged to end the income tax for seniors making less than $50,000
  • who pledged to end no-bid contracts above $25,000
  • who pledged to double federal funding for cancer research
  • who pledged to double the size of the Peace Corps
  • who pledged to double funding for after-school programs
  • who pledged to increase the minimum wage to $9.50 per hour
  • who pledged to support a human mission to the moon by 2020
  • who pledged to establish a term limit for the director of national intelligence
  • who pledged to enact a windfall-profits tax
  • who pledged to create a cap-and-trade system
  • who pledged to recognize the Armenian Genocide
  • who pledged to introduce a comprehensive immigration-reform plan in his first year

To be fair, we know what the core principles of Barack Obama are: blaming corporate-jet owners and ATMS for job losses, shrugging his shoulders at scandals such as Solyndra and Fast and Furious, fundraisers, telling the American people they’ve gone soft, and golf.

One long list of expiration dates here, PolitiFact’s list of Obama’s broken promises can be found here.

To be fair, it is STILL Bush’s Fault!

  1. You forgot ‘reduce your health insurance premiums and you’ll get to keep your doctor.’
