They are ubiquitous. They stink. They constitute the pile of excrement known as Obama promises.
“I will be held accountable,” Obama said. “I’ve got four years and … A year form now, I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress, but there’s still going to be some pain out there … If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”
“Today I am pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office.”
“As president, Barack Obama will close the detention facility at Guantanamo.”
It’s “absolutely” not a tax
“That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”
“[S]tarting today, you and your friends and your family and your coworkers can get covered, too. Just visit healthcare.gov, and there you can compare insurance plans, side by side, the same way you’d shop for a plane ticket on Kayak or a TV on Amazon.”
“Don’t take my word for it; go on the website,” Obama told a crowd at Prince George’s Community College in Largo. “See for yourself what the prices are. See for yourself what the choices are and then make up your own mind. That’s all I’m asking.
Today we toss another shovel-ready load on the pile:
KABUL – While many Americans have been led to believe the war in Afghanistan will soon be over, a draft of a key U.S.-Afghan security deal obtained by NBC News shows the United States is prepared to maintain military outposts in Afghanistan for many years to come, and pay to support hundreds of thousands of Afghan security forces.
Who could forget this memorable testimony?
Obama hammered away at Republican rival Mitt Romney on the issue last year, saying the former Massachusetts governor had no timetable for bringing Americans home from the country’s longest war.
“We are bringing our troops home from Afghanistan. And I’ve set a timetable. We will have them all out of there by 2014,” Obama said in Boulder, Colo., in September 2012. “Gov. Romney doesn’t have a timetable. I think he’s wrong. That’s what’s at stake in this election.”
Romney was right, and Obama lied. It’s become easier to remember what Obama hasn’t lied about than remember all that he has lied about. At the moment I can’t even think of a thing he hasn’t lied about.
“Don’t take my word for it”
That would have been great advice for America from Obama five years ago.
Exit question- We can’t keep our plans even we like them. If we don’t like our President, do we still have to keep him?
