President Barak Obama Campaign Failed Promises In The First Year
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.
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.
