    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    “As President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide.”




    “I will make sure that we renegotiate [NAFTA].“




    Opposed a Colombian Free Trade Agreement because advocates ignore that “labor leaders have been targeted for assassination on a fairly consistent basis.”




    “Now, what I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut.”




    “If we see money being misspent, we’re going to put a stop to it, and we will call it out and we will publicize it.“




    “I want to go line by line through every item in the Federal budget and eliminate programs that don’t work, and make sure that those that do work work better and cheaper.”




    “[My plan] will not help speculators who took risky bets on a rising market and bought homes not to live in but to sell.”




    “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.”




    “We can no longer accept a process that doles out earmarks based on a member of Congress’s seniority, rather than the merit of the project.”






    “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.”




    “Lobbyists won’t work in my White House!“


    “The real gamble in this election is playing the same Washington game with the same Washington players and expecting a different result.”




    “I’ll make oil companies like Exxon pay a tax on their windfall profits, and we’ll use the money to help families pay for their skyrocketing energy costs and other bills.”




    “Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.” Obama is 1-for-11 on this promise so far.




    A special one on the 100th day, “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing I’d do.”

    And these are just from his first 100 days.

    My personal favorite:


    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.

    He misrepresented everything he was going to do from Day 1 to get elected. Then he let the Dums in Congress take over his agenda.
    He is the most incompetent president we've ever had, and that includes Warren harding.

    I wish it was not just him lying to us, but it's not. He has most of the Press, and all sorts of groups on his side.

    This is a revolution going on. It might not look like revolutions of the past, but is one none the less.

    Another dandy:



    GUANTANAMO BAY​



    STATEMENT: Executive order stating, “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.” January 22, 2009.


    EXPIRATION DATE: November 19, 2009: “Guantánamo, we had a specific deadline that was missed.” ​
