Do you remember when President George H.W. Bush No. 41 made the
promise not to raise taxes (“Read my lips: No new taxes”), but
unfortunately was talked into raising taxes and it cost him his
re-election bid for a second term?

If President Bush No. 41 can lose a re-election by breaking one
promise, how can President Obama win a second term when he has broken a
truckload of promises?

Consider only his multiple campaign promises to raise taxes. A few
years ago, the Washington Examiner gave a selective list of them:

“It’s true that I want to roll back the Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans.” Chester, Pa., Oct. 28, 2008

“We are going to roll back the Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest
Americans, those making more than $250,000 a year.” Lake Worth, Fla.,
Oct. 21, 2008

“Yes, I’m going to roll back the Bush tax cuts for the very wealthiest Americans.” New Philadelphia, Ohio, Sept. 3, 2008

“I think it is very important to roll back the Bush tax cuts on some
of the wealthiest Americans.” Chesapeake, Va., Aug. 21, 2008

“We’re going to have to roll back the Bush tax cuts on the top one percent.” Fargo, N.D., July 3, 2008

“I’m going to roll back the Bush tax cuts back to the levels they
were in the 1990s.” Interview with Fox News Channel, June 26, 2008

“I will roll back the Bush tax cuts on people making over $250,000.” Watertown, S.D., May 16, 2008

“We are going to roll back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.” Raleigh, N.C., May 3, 2008

“It is true that I would roll back the Bush tax cuts on the
wealthiest Americans back to the level they were under Bill Clinton.”
Fox News Sunday, April 27, 2008

“We’re going to roll back the Bush tax cuts on the top one percent.” Lancaster, Pa., March 31, 2008

“I want to roll back those Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans.” Youngstown, Ohio, Feb. 18, 2008

“Let’s roll back the Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans.” Washington, D.C., June 19, 2007

“I would roll back the Bush tax cuts for those making over $250,000.” Manchester, N.H., June 3, 2007

During the Bush era, such rampant repeat offenses and taxation lies
would have led to a presidential ousting from the Oval Office. But for

And yet, that sampling of broken fiscal pledges is only the tip of the iceberg of our current president’s contemptible record.

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
  • “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.

John Stossel posted this analysis of federal non-defense spending per person

  • “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).
  • “[I] 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,
  • “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,
  • “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

And President Obama has the audacity to put out a campaign video
against Gov. Mitt Romney’s record of “broken promises” as governor of

In the more than 500 promises Obama made during his campaign and
presidency, even the pro-Obama PolitiFact website and its Obamameter has
rated his scorecard: 184 promises kept, 60 compromised, 71 broken, 61
stalled, 130 in the works and two not yet rated. What that coddled
language boils down to is this: Even according to the political left,
Obama has fulfilled 184 promises and left 324 pledges dangling farther
than participles!

In 2010, feeling a bit defensive and maybe insecure, Obama fired back
in anger to those who were accusing him of selling out by breaking so
many of his campaign promises. Wielding his verbose verbal sword, the
president retorted, “Take a tally. Look at what I promised during the
campaign. There’s not a single thing that I’ve said that I would do that
I have not either done or tried to do. And if I haven’t gotten it done
yet, I’m still trying to do it.”

“Not a single thing”?

That’s another broken promise.

    I am a republican but President Obama can count on my vote. I'd rather take 4 more years of status quo than a fresh start with Romney. He is a Mormon and on that alone he is a member of a belief system that feels people with dark skin are cursed by G-D. Somehow intelligence hasn't gotten to people of that belief system and helped them to realize the sun G-D made turns skin dark not a curse. So I'd go with a democrat that I very often disagree with than a republican who isn't fit to be a leader.

    I wouldn't say he's a racist because I don't know much about him personally and I hate how loosely that word is thrown around but, he is a member of a "Christian" church that believes people with dark skin are cursed basically saying it is better to have a fair skin complexion.
