Complete List of Broken Obama Promises

The list is long – and growing. Lie after lie has been exposed. Barack Obama said whatever people wanted to hear to get himself elected. But now, we have proof that the eloquent speeches were nothing more than hot air.

National Review Onlinehttp://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=MzI4MjQ3Mzk4MWJkNDkwNWZlYzcwNDA3NmQyNmIxYmI= has compiled a long list including:

HEALTH CARE MANDATES

STATEMENT: “We’ve got a philosophical difference, which we’ve debated repeatedly, and that is that Senator Clinton believes the only way to achieve universal health care is to force everybody to purchase it. And my belief is, the reason that people don’t have it is not because they don’t want it but because they can’t afford it.” Barack Obama, speaking at a Democratic presidential debate, February 21, 2008.

EXPIRATION DATE: On March 23, 2010, Obama signed the individual mandate into law.

HEALTH CARE NEGOTIATIONS ON C-SPAN

STATEMENT: “These negotiations will be on C-SPAN, and so the public will be part of the conversation and will see the decisions that are being made.” January 20, 2008, and seven other times.

EXPIRATION DATE: Throughout the summer, fall, and winter of 2009 and 2010; when John McCain asked about it during the health care summit February 26, Obama dismissed the issue by declaring, “the campaign is over, John.”

RAISING TAXES

STATEMENT: “No family making less than $250,000 will see any form of tax increase.” (multiple times on the campaign trail)

EXPIRATION DATE: Broken multiple times, including the raised taxes on tobacco, a new tax on indoor tanning salons, but most prominently on February 11, 2010: “President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.”

RECESS APPOINTMENTS

STATEMENT: Then-Senator Obama declared that a recess appointment is “damaged goods” and has “less credibility” than a normal appointment. August 25, 2005.

EXPIRATION DATE: March 27, 2010: “If, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis.”

    Man what a bunch of whiners to republicans are. Like a group of teenagers gossiping in the school yard. Get over it, grow up, and do something to help america instead of help only yourselves. Instead of chain smoking and driving your big truck too fast like a real jerk, thinking only of yourself, think of the rest of the country for a change. You want to buy american but you won’t help america.

    Admit to yourself that you are probably just simply racist and full of hate and would do anything to see a black president fail.

    Then, come around, grow up, and act like a man, and make a change instead of sitting around crying about what poor obama did to you. Guess what, if the majority are against obama, he wouldn’t be president right now, would he?

    Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
