Can Obama Be Re-elected on Broken Promises? by Chuck Norris

In the more than 500 promises Obama made during his campaign and presidency, even the Obameter from PolitiFact — which tends to be pro-Obama — has this as his scorecard: 185 promises kept, 61 compromised, 71 broken, 61 stalled, 128 in the works and two not yet rated.

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

If President Bush No. 41 could lose a re-election by breaking one promise, how can President Barack 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 more than a dozen instances when Obama promised to roll back President George W. Bush’s tax cuts from Americans. During the Bush No. 43 era, such rampant repeat offenses and taxation lies would have led to his ousting from the Oval Office. But for Obama?

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