Obama's broken campaign promises

Democrats and RHINO’S are delighting in Donald Trump not fulfilling his campaign promises in 100 days. Never mind his term is 1,461 days long. Or that Trump is not a politician, which is what most Americans wanted. He didn’t do it in 100 days so dammit, he is a total failure.

Tom Perez, the DNC Head Thug, has taken to profanity to describe Trump’s initial mini-budget. Umm….. Barrack Obama was 98 days late with his first budget. Three of his first four budgets were late. The deadline is determined by The Budget and Accounting Act of 1921.

I thought it would be fun to revisit some of media darling Obama’s 2008 campaign promises. And remember, Obama was an experienced politician…

Candidate Obama promised that he would not be swayed by the influence of special interests and Super PACs. But when it was re-election time in 2012, Obama embraced special interests and SuperPacs.

Candidate Obama promised to close GITMO within one year. Despite Democrat control of both houses of congress, that did not happen. GITMO is still open today.

Candidate Obama promised to undue George W. Busch’s tax cuts. But he extended the tax cuts so he could extend unemployment benefits, because he could not get people back to work.

Candidate Obama promised to set a cap on carbon emissions to combat alleged “global warming.” Obama walked away from cap-and-trade when it failed to pass in the Democrat-controlled congress.

Candidate Obama promised no new taxes for families making under $250,000. 16 days into his presidency, Obama raised the tax on cigarettes, thereby raising taxes on every smoker making less than $250,000 a year.

Candidate Obama promised to return man to the moon by 2020, then to Mars. The space shuttle program was shut down in 2011, and plans are still not in place to return to the moon or go to Mars.

Candidate Obama promised that all employees would get seven federally guaranteed sick days a year. In Obama’s first year. The Healthy Families Act was stalled in committee. Again, Democrats controlled both houses of congress.

Candidate Obama promised to introduce a comprehensive immigration plan by the end of his first year in office. Despite being a “top priority,” Obama introduced no such bill in that year.

Candidate Obama promised to post every bill online for five days before he signed it. That never happened. In fact, Obamacare had to be passed before we could know what was in the bill.

Trust me. There are many, many more. So the next time some whiny liberal talks to you about President Trump’s “broken” campaign promises, learn that person a little history.

That’s my opinion…
