    OBAMA BROKEN PROMISES

    President Obama is still running against George Bush after being in office for four years. Sadly he does not understand that he owns this economy now. It is all his.

    What might have helped him win? Let's look at what 2008 Obama told America. He told us that he would, among other things.....

    1. Cut the deficit in half & reduce debt
    2. Create millions & millions of new jobs
    3. Go through the budget line by line with a scalpel to cut wasteful spending
    4. Bring ethics & transparency to government
    5. Post all Congressional bills online for five days before voting
    6. Comprehensive immigration reform in the first year in office
    7. Eliminate earmarks
    9. Close Gitmo
    10. End the wars in the Middle East
    11. Restore America's relationships with the rest of the world
    12. Enact healthcare reform that will reduce every family's insurance premiums by $2,500

    What is the result:
    1. Cut the deficit in half & reduce debt - deficit up 10x from 2007, 4x from 2008. $6,000,000,000,000 of new debt in just 3-1/2 years, a more than 50% increase in debt above all heretofore accumulated debt from all US presidents combined.
    2. Create millions & millions of new jobs - lowest labor participation rate since the early 1980s and fewer people working today than in 2008.
    3. Go through the budget line by line with a scalpel to cut wasteful spending - none of this happened.
    4. Bring ethics & transparency to government - a government stuffed full of lobbyists, cronys, and scandal-plagued individuals.
    5. Post all Congressional bills online for five days before voting - never happened
    6. Comprehensive immigration reform in the first year in office - never happened
    7. Eliminate earmarks - never happened
    9. Close Gitmo - never happened
    10. End the wars in the Middle East - never happened
    11. Restore America's relationships with the rest of the world - never happened and our relationship with the rest of the world is weaker than ever.
    12. Enact healthcare reform that will reduce every family's insurance premiums by $2,500 - did not happen, premiums for most families rose.

    None of these are an emotional rant. They are facts. If you think this is a record that you want to see extended for another four years, vote for President Obama. If you have had enough, vote for Romney.
