    This goes for those who voted for him and those who didn't.



    For me it's I wish he'd kept his promise that diplomacy, whether with our allies or enemies, was of absolute importance. Then we have the current disaster in Libya, and despite all Gaddafi's faults he's proven to be open to diplomacy in the past when he stopped his WMD program, yet Obama ignored this and went with the war first, ask questions later that hurt us so much in the last administration.




    What about you guys?

    I wish he had kept his oath of office:

    "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

    Aye, aye, aye, yes.

    The only transparent thing I think I've seen is maybe the teleprompter he reads from.

    He made a campaign promise to get out of Iraq war in his first 10 months in office. I wished he would have kept that promise. Then he changed it to 16 months then he said 24 months. I think now he’s saying 2014 which probably won’t happen either. Now, he's started another soon-to-be war in Libya. This guy is nothing but a liar and cad, he loves to play with American lives and money.

    To change the tone in Washington.
    I mean, he changed the tone all right. But I think most people had the idea he would improve things,not make them worse.
