President Barak Obama Campaign Failed Promises In The First Year

Updated on October 12, 2015

2008 presidential election campaign

During the 2008 presidential election campaign for the presidency,candidate Obama promised hope and change will be coming to Washington. The reform legislation that Obama and the majority Democrat party are pushing for have confirmed his intentions of changing the ways in American government.

Let’s look back to what candidate Obama pledged to the American people if elected. President Barak Obama pledged:

1.To bring back the jobs lost in 2007 and 2008

2.To fix the economic problems by passing the $787 billion Tarp bill (Congress passed the bill without reading or debating the bill).

3.To have fiscal responsibility and control spending, Barak Obama promised to go line for line and strike out pork in the Tarp bill

4.To rid Washington of lobbyist and special interest groups

5.To surround himself with experienced and capable people

6.To have an open transparent government and to allow C-Span to televise the debates and congressional hearings.

7 To close gitmo last year.

8.To end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

9.To give 95% of the people a tax break and not to tax anyone below $250,000, by the way according to some officials the ceiling has dropped down to$100,000 with a possibility to $85,000 due to lack of money coming into the treasury.

10.To not allow no bid contracts in his administration. A major news source reported that Obama gave a $25 million no bid contract to a donor of his campaign. The contract recently was cancelled after being exposed by the media..

11. To reduce the deficit by 50% in his first term. The proposed budget for 2011($3.85 trillion )given to Congress will be the largest ever in our history if passed by Congress..

The above information you will not see in the bias press or reported on ABC,CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, or other liberal news medias. Watch C-Span or Fox News, they report and broadcast the actual uncensored news The Presidents rating is ‘’F’’ on the first year ?

In summary, let’s be fair when President Obama talks about what his administration and Congress was left with after the past administration. The simple facts are that then Senator Obama and the present Democrat party took full control of Congress in January 2007 and in 2008. with a lame duck President George W. Bush.

Surely it is irresponsible to blame the Bush administration for all the present problems without noting who controlled Congress in 2007 and 2008. President Obama and the Democrats should be accepting their political parties share of the blame for their part in the recession.

      Its truely amazing and chilling that he was reelected without fulfilling one of the promises you've mentioned! Spending, taxing, deficits and corruption are all increasing at obscene rates. Unemployment remains high and economic growth has stagnated. Might one conclude that what he's been doing is simply not working?

      And in more than one instance she failed to make sure the questions were answered ! ..Only the main part of her job!...of course when do liberals ever follow the rules?

      But I have to say the questioners were complete WHIMPS - If I asked a question and either candidate failed to answer it I'd have let them know it and even would have made a scene if I had to screaming out "You haven't' answered my question Mr. President which doesn't surprise me one bit!! Where is the moderator?"

      What could they do, throw me out? Fine then I'd be a guest interview on every news show out there.

      We are a country of WHIMPS.But then the questioners were supposedly undecided voters...or in other words anyone who is still undecided at this point is a certified WHIMP, what did I expect?

      The second Presidential debate on Oct 16, 2012 ended with another victory for the American public. The moderator exposed her bias for President Obama by cutting short Romney on many occasions. President Obama had 3 minutes more time than Mitt Romney.

      The moderator, Jim Lehrer allowed President Obama 42 minutes and Mitt Romney 38 minutes in the debate, hardly fair and balanced. The President disregarded the time to respond on many occasions. Mitt Romney refused to allow the moderated to respond many times , referring to time limits.

      On Oct. 5, Obama cheered a labor department report, unemployment went down from 8.1% to 7.8% in Sept. WOW!

      Another hokus pokus, make the numbers change.

      And those polls that reported that Mitt Romney over sampled Democrats by 4 points so he actually did better than the polls reflect.

      At his first chance in the debate, Romney turned the phrase “Trickle-down economics” on its head by labeling the president's policies of bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more — if you will, as trickle-down government.

      Obama's big criticism of Romney the day after the debate was that he attacked Big Bird. Perhaps Obama can get a job on Sesame Street after he loses the election as :

      The first presidential debate is history. Polls taken in the media reported that Mitt Romney had been the winner because of his strong performance. In my humble opinion, it was the American people who truly are the winners. They had the opportunity to see both candidates in an open discussion , live and uncut as to what each candidate had to offer to the American people. The next debate will be the Vice President candidates debate on Oct. 11, 2012 followed by the 2nd presidential debate on Oct 16,2012..

      8/21/12, an update

      The 2012 election campaign has begun with the selection of Congressman Ryan as the Republican Vice President nominee for the Republican party. The Romney Ryan ticket is running on platform of providing jobs, fixing the economy and a plan to make Medicare solvent for future generations. Congressman Ryan said in acceptance speech ’’ we will tell you the truth’’ was an interesting highlight of his speech. In order to clarify the misinformation about the Ryan plan by the other party, check these links.

      Today, June 13, 2012, President Obama's speech in Ohio again mentioned what he had inherited( $1 TRILLON DEFICIT) from the Bush administration and the Democrat controlled Congress (2007,2008). Senator Obama was a member in the Senate in 2007 and 2008.Since Jan. 2007 to 2012, the Democrats have had a 2/3's control of Congress. From Jan. 2009 to Sept. 2010, the Democrats had 100% control of the government. To BLAME the other party for failures of his party is disingenuous by the President.

      Note that the deficit in the month of May 2012 was $1.25 trillion, the President hardly mentions jobs and the economy while on the campaign trail. SENATOR REID refuses to allow jobs bills passed by the Republican House to be put on the floor for a vote. One half of Congress (Democrats ) is not listening to the President’s calls.

      an update on the campaign

      5/31/12, Barack Obama 2012 Presidential Campaign

      How low can the Barack Obama 2012 presidential campaign machine get? Today, 5/31/12. Obama’s representative, Mr. Axelrod gave a political speech in Boston, Mass attacking past governor Romney, Republican candidate for the 2012 presidential campaign , on Romney’s past Mass. unemployment record . A small group supporting the past Governor was calling out to Mr. Axelrod, ‘’ where are the JOBS’’

      On the speaker dais was a sign that read ‘’ romneyeconomics.com’’, which turned out to be an Obama operated website,http://www.barackobama.com/romney/economics/.

      The websites were political background information about candidate Romney which will be part of a Obama campaign ad and other advertisements. In perspective, the voters would hope that the President would speak more of his accomplishments while in office and the President’s plan to accomplish the promises of 2008 when running for the presidency. The deficits, the economy, the budgets and the loss of jobs should be the NUMBER ONE issue in the 2012 presidential campaign election. It appears now that Romney has received enough votes to be the Republican candidate, the 2012 election battles have commenced. Romney appeared at the headquarters of Solynda ,the solar panel company that failed, making his speech regarding the government‘s failed investment in the solar company.

      TODAY, JULY 2, 2011

      Unemployment is 9.1%, there are 45,000 citizens collecting food stamps, the cost of gasoline and food has risen to historic levels and the National Debt under the Democrats control of Congress has increase $4.5 trillion and will exceed the $14.3 DEBT limit.

      All that President Barak Obama and the Democrats are saying is that the Republicans are at fault. The facts of the matter is that what they ( DEMOCRATS ) propose does not work. Obama and the Democrats want to spend ( borrowed money ) and tax to change the economy around ( they have had 2.5 years ). The Republicans want to cut spending and lower taxes across the board for everyone.

      It don’t take a fool to understand which plan is better?

      The Obama administration has approved over 1500 waivers to Obamcare, most of which were union affiliated plans. Recently 23 companies and unions were exempted from the legislation, 20% of those GRANTED on that day were in Congresswomen Pelosi’s district in San Francisco. How convenient for the Democrat leader. Remember when than Speaker Pelosi said ‘’ we need to pass the bill so that we can see what’s in it ‘’

      On 5/24/11 a report on the Stimulus Funding was presented to some members of Congress. Senator Coburn is calling for a investigation as to why companies and non profits were given stimulus funds who owe the government federal taxes. It appears that 3700 contractors and non profits doing work for the government received $24 billion of stimulus funds.

      Senator Coburn wants to know as to why and how the grants were given when the companies were tax delinquent. It would not look good for the Obama Administration if the companies had made large donations to the 2008 presidential campaign.

      Today is 3/7/11 and President Obama has been in office some 25 months. I pointed out 11 of the Presidents promises he made to the American people if elected. Out of the 11 ,Obama has not performed on 1,3,4,6,7,8,10 and 11 of his promises, another ‘’f‘’ rating

      .

      The only accomplishment that he could possibly consider a kept promise is

      on items 2. spending on the $825 billion stimulus bill , item 5. surround himself with experienced and capable people ( could be questionable) and item 9. give 95% of the people a tax break ( really not a tax break but he didn‘t raise everyone’s taxes)

      .

      As he begins his 3rd year in office, the shine that he once had is getting pretty dull. It’s becoming clear as to who and what he represents being in the Whitehouse.
