    Let me remind you of several other core busted promises by Obama – shattered vows right from the horse’s presidential mouth, according to the National Review and other watchdog and news agencies:

    - “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing I’d do” (spoken on the campaign trail in 2008).

    - “Today I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office” (spoken at the opening of Fiscal Responsibility Summit on Feb. 23, 2009).

    - “We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government, and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov” (spoken in a speech on Jan. 28, 2009).

    - “There is no doubt that we’ve been living beyond our means and we’re going to have to make some adjustments. Now, what I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut” (spoken during the third presidential debate on Oct. 15, 2008.

    - “We are going to ban all earmarks” (spoken at a press conference on Jan. 6, 2009).

    - “Instead of allowing lobbyists to slip big corporate tax breaks into bills during the dead of night, we will make sure every single tax break and earmark is available to every American online” (spoken on campaign trail in June 2007).

    - “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase – not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes” (spoken in September 2008 at a town-hall meeting in Dover).

    - “ will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year. This will eliminate taxes for 7 million seniors – saving them an average of $1,400 a year – and will also mean that 27 million seniors will not need to file an income tax return at all” (from Barack Obama presidential campaign fact sheet in 2008).

    - “[My plan] will not help speculators who took risky bets on a rising market and bought homes not to live in but to sell” (spoken to an audience in Phoenix on Feb. 18, 2009).

    - “Lobbyists won’t work in my White House” (spoken on his Iowa bus tour on Dec. 15, 2007).

    - “We’ve got a philosophical difference, which we’ve debated repeatedly, and that is that Sen. Clinton believes the only way to achieve universal health care is to force everybody to purchase it” (spoken during the Democratic Party presidential debate on Feb. 21, 2008).

    - “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” (spoken on Jan. 20, 2008, and seven other times).

    - “The detention facilities at Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, and no later than one year from the date of this order” (presidential executive order on Jan. 22, 2009).

    - “Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe the United States has to be frank with the Chinese about such failings and will press them to respect human rights” (On a fact sheet distributed by the Obama campaign during the 2008 campaign).

    - “We need tougher border security, and a renewed focus on busting up gangs and traffickers crossing our border. … That begins at home, with comprehensive immigration reform. That means securing our border and passing tough employer enforcement laws” (spoken in Miami on May 23, 2008).

    - “I will make sure that we renegotiate [NAFTA]” (spoken on Feb. 23, 2008).

    And, as long as we’re discussing lies and broken promises, let’s not forget this is the president who promised during his campaign to “clean up both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue” with “the most sweeping ethics reform in history.” He repeatedly pledged that “an Obama administration is going to have the toughest ethic laws of any administration in history.” Doesn’t “toughest ethic laws” include more lies and broken promises?

    Can Obama be re-elected on broken promises?

    OBAMA: I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there’s been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true.'

    That is some egregious tall tales. We won't get fooled again.

    But look at the little sycophants, scurrying to take the onus off Obama's scurrilous rhetoric and place it on Mitt Romney, who did cut his state's deficit and has a history of dealing fairly across party lines. :rolleyes: Good post, Pale Rider. <You must spread some reputation around before giving some to Pale Rider.> *sigh* I shot my reputation wad on Father's Day reps yesterday, but you deserve one, Mr. Rider. :)

    Campaign promises compared to lies. I don't consider failing on campaign promises as "lies". As for campaign promises, Polifitact has done a good job of scoring those and the President ain't doing too bad...

    Promise Kept 184 (36%)
    Compromise 61 (12%)
    Promise Broken 71 (14%)
    Stalled 61 (12%)
    In the Works 129 (25%)
    Not yet rated 2 (0%)

    I am a supporter of the President. I make no bones about it. So, are you supporting Romney or not?
