    Obama Focuses On Success During West Coast Swing | Fox News

    Most rational people would beg to differ on the 80% success rate the President is claiming.

    For instance, Politifact has over 500 Obama campaign promises on record...
    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/
    currently...
    145 are listed as KEPT
    43 are listed as COMPROMISE
    47 are listed as BROKEN
    69 are listed as STALLED
    202 are listed as IN THE WORKS
    2 are listed as NOT RATED

    Even if you give the President credit for both KEPT and COMPROMISE, that's still only 37% of his pre-election agenda.

    He must have pulled the 80% figure out of the same orifice that he pulled all the 'created or saved' job numbers from.

    Let him claim a higher rate. That means despite his "victories" we aren't any better. It just shows his incompetence.

    Strange... I thought Obama told us the Republicans block everything and that's why the economy is failing.

    How many Presidents get 80% of what they want done in their first term. Man, Obama really does 9own the economy lol.

    Obama might be the stupidest President in the history of our country. The whole “lie big” thing has been taken too far.

    I'm sure that his success measuring stick is how close to an authoritarian socialist state we can become.

    The more government influence and control = success to Obama.

    He just hasn't figured out the whole economy thing yet.

    The progressives in charge have not figured out how to manipulate the public into believing they're living under under a free market capitalist free nation with a constitution and Bill of Rights while truly living under a socialist dictated economy with an authoritarian society...

    I suppose that's why they call their ideas progressive..... Maybe in 10-20 years they hope to have their Orwellian society...

    I think Obama has gone delusional -:lol::lol: And for good reason after the loss of NY9--DEMOCRATS are running from him--making him a LAME DUCK President 14 months prior to the election.

    Maybe he thinks if he says it enough it will come true?--:cuckoo:

    I was with El Rushbo when he said he hoped Obama failed as a president.... unfortunatley, Obama is doing a great job of destroying what is left of our economy.

    That is exactly what he set out to do..... "fundamentally change America"

    I cant wait till that bastard is unemployed. (and yes he is a bastard... look up the definition)

    Exactly. The problem with Obama isn't that he has failed. It's that he has succeeded at most of his agenda.

    I think we need to fundamentally change Amerca too. But I think we should do it by restoring our Republic.
