The Ultimate Guide to Obama’s Broken Promises

Jim Geraghty over at NRO’s Campaign Spot has done a great job highlighting how Obama’s promises each come with an expiration date.

After the President’s most recent violation, Geraghty put together a compilation of each and every one.

This is a fantastic resource for muting the Sheeple still muttering “hope & change” under their breath. And if it’s your kinda thing, I’d even recommend posting the link to the article on your facebook or twitter account.

In the meantime, here are a couple highlights:


STATEMENT: “We’ve got a philosophical difference, which we’ve debated repeatedly, and that is that Senator Clinton believes the only way to achieve universal health care is to force everybody to purchase it. And my belief is, the reason that people don’t have it is not because they don’t want it but because they can’t afford it.” Barack Obama, speaking at a Democratic presidential debate, February 21, 2008.

EXPIRATION DATE: On March 23, 2010, Obama signed the individual mandate into law.


STATEMENT: “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.” January 20, 2008, and seven other times.

EXPIRATION DATE: Throughout the summer, fall, and winter of 2009 and 2010; when John McCain asked about it during the health care summit February 26, Obama dismissed the issue by declaring, “the campaign is over, John.”
