Promises made, promises not kept

Let’s look at some of President Barack Obama’s public promises:

  • April 9, 2009: “And we will not rest until we reach a day when not one single veteran falls into homelessness.”
  • May 11, 2009: “I will not rest until the dream of health care reform is finally achieved in the United States of America.”
  • Sept. 15, 2009: “I want you all to know, I will not rest until anybody who’s looking for a job can find one – and I’m not talking about just any job, but good jobs that give every American decent wages and decent benefits and a fair shot at the American Dream.”
  • Nov. 2, 2009: “We will not rest until we are succeeding in generating the jobs that this economy needs.”
  • Nov. 23, 2009: “I will not rest until businesses are investing again, and businesses are hiring again.”
  • Jan. 28, 2010: “We will not rest until we build an economy that’s ready for America’s future.”
  • March 5, 2010: “I’m not gonna rest and my administration is not gonna rest in our efforts to help people who are looking to find a job.”
  • July 8, 2010: “My administration will not rest until every American who is able and ready and willing to work can find a job.”
  • July 23, 2012, speaking to the Veterans of Foreign Wars: “The VA and DOD will work harder towards a seamless transition so new veterans aren’t just piled on to the backlog. And we will not rest – I will not be satisfied until we get this right.”

Have all the promises been kept, or has the president rested anyway? Do the 177 rounds of golf he has played since being inaugurated count as rest? Do we have any reason to be concerned with his work ethic?

Empty promises that sound wonderful but are never fulfilled are the hallmark of President Obama. The people of this great republic deserve better. We must do better in choosing our leaders.

    The President of the United States is the most stressful job in the world and therefore there is a need to have R&R. Anyone who does not acknowledge that is not realistic. However, we deserve as a country to have a President who talks less, makes fewer promise and accomplishes more. I'm certain that the supporters of President Obama will become instant historians and call up and out the shortcomings (of which there are many) of previous Presidents. That is fine, but they have very little to do with the here and now (regarding their accomplishments or lack of) and the lack of "follow through" of the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The office of the President is one that needs to be respected by all in the country, but respecting the Position starts with the one that holds the Office.

    Crutchfield, i applaud your list of Republican failures, but you forgot about them shutting down the government. It has been truly remarkable to watch them stand in the way of progress and success in America. Even given your modest list, it is difficult to understand why anybody, other than the very rich, who benefit from the Republican strategy of keeping our nation on our knees, would ever consider voting for this party again.

    In 1930's Chicago, CPUSA recruited journalists to help spread Soviet influence in American public opinion. Frank Marshall Davis was one of them. A graduate of Kansas State Journalism School, Frank Marshall Davis joined the Communist Party and began writing for The Chicago Star. He was a colleague of journalist Vernon Jarrett, father-in-law of Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett. Davis also taught at Chicago's Abraham Lincoln School, a Communist run training school run by CPUSA. Davis authored three major volumes of poetry, and later an autobiographical hex novel under a pseudonym FDC Please Can you see this or is it just mirrored back to me?

    Let's get this straight, the do-everything-House has passed 361 bills including bi-partisan bills along with immigration reform 2 weeks ago, Harry Reid strengthened with silence of Obama, has blocked every single one of them from every being heard in the Senate. It's starting to seep in the public that fact, people like Mikie mindlessly parroting DNC and MSNBC talking points are losing more and more creditability as even the leftist lame-stream media is getting tired of these lying antics. Mikie and his DNC are going to have to come up with something other than trying to paint the GOP as the 'party of no" or that they want to take away women's condoms, a lot of Americans have been dumbed down thanks to their control of the education system, but they're not that completely delusional as Mikie and the DNC believe.

Mr.P's examples don't, nor will any bill that holds a poison pill to kill ObamaCare. He's being facetious. You may not like ObamaCare, but you have to admit those bills are merely symbolic acts of political kvetching that shouldn't count as "quality bills" in this context. So name one bill that the Senate has bottled up that is really important for the country and is a true act of compromise, a bill I would agree Obama should sign.

    Mr.S: I'm not sure of what you're trying to say. What I'm saying is Reid is not going to allow a vote unless there are enough Democrats in favor to pass it. That's what's called the "Hastert Rule" (Republican) in the House. I said "maybe" that's it. I'm open to other thoughts on the matter. If you follow the Hastert Rule and the other house is controlled by the other party, then you aren't going to see many votes on bills or even conferences on bills sent over from the other house. Right now you see that only in the Senate because while the Republicans control the House, the Democrats don't control the Senate when it comes to passing bills. That's due to the cloture (filibuster) rule in the Senate that requires at least a 60% favorable vote to pass a bill. So, the Republican House sends over lots if bills that have no chance of a vote in the Senate just so they can drive up the numbers you are citing and make just the argument you are making. If they were serious about actually getting a bill into law, they would work to get Senate support in advance.

    I'm trying to say that Harry Reid is a horse's asp. But thanks for verifying the fact that Reid can't control senate votes, and therefore does not allow them. By the way, Speaker Hastert has denied the existence of a "Hastert Rule" during his term.

    On this explosive Wednesday, August 13 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex reports on the police state in Ferguson, Missouri, as cops enact curfews, close down roads, set up no-fly zones and point sniper rifles at unarmed protestors. The police are even rolling up to the city in Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles. There's absolutely no doubt that such show of force could happen anywhere in America during an economic collapse or other such crisis. Ex-CIA officer turned activist and journalist Ray McGovern joins the show to break down today's news in both the U.S. and internationally. Also, in preparation of the upcoming school year, educational expert Anita Hoge exposes the dangers of Common Core and how parents can fight back against state propaganda disguised as school lessons.wwwinfowarscom

    Almost every person in a so-called "democratic" society thinks that so-called elections are REAL.You either vote Republican or Democrat in a two party system, which is NOT what true democracy is all about. If your father or mother was s Democrat or a Republican, that's who you probably voted for. They taught you in school about so-called "democracy" and about George Washington and all other Presidents never telling lies...yeah, right, sure. They taught you about every war that was ever fought and how proud you should be because America won. Early on children are taught that war and the killing of millions of human beings in wars is "normal" acceptable human behavior and not the acts of sick insane killer MAD MEN. Dropping not one but two atomic bombs on Japan and killing and maiming hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children was NOT considered a major war crime and neither President Truman nor anyone else went to jail for committing what could be considered the greatest, most atrocious war crime in history. It is now known and reported that the Japanese were ready to surrender BEFORE the bombs were dropped. They don't teach you in school that America is the most warring Nation on the planet and that the Illuminati manipulated U.S.A. has been responsible for the deaths of over 60,000,000 human beings in 55 wars or U.S. supported conflicts all over the world in the last 65 years.

    Mali is one of the world's largest gold producers. Together with neighboring Ghana they account for 7-8% of world gold output. That makes them a rich prize for nations desperate for real physical gold. So, even as Germany started demanding their gold back from the Bank of France and the New York Federal Reserve, France (aided by the US) decided to invade Mali to fight "Islamists" working for "Al Qaeda." Of course, "Islamists" has become the catch-all label for people that need to ne killed to get them out of the way of the path to riches, and the people being bombed by France (aided by the US) are not "Al Qaeda" but Tawariqs, who have been fighting for their independence for 150 years, long before the CIA created "Al Qaeda". Left to themselves, the Tawariqs could sell gold to whoever they want for whatever they want, and right now China can outbid the US and France. Google... bruce willis gold vault new york city.....

The London Times indicates the rich elites spend 15 minutes each during the meeting talking about their favorite passions and issues and, led by Microsoft founder Bill Gates, they adopted reducing the world’s population as the main issue to put their money behind..... Patricia Stonesifer, former chief executive of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, indicated the billionaires would continue meeting over the next few months.........The newspaper indicated the meeting took place at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, a British Nobel Prize-winning biochemist and president of Rockefeller University, and that Gates was the organizer of the gathering.............The "billionaires club" meeting, according to the Times, included such notables as Bill Gates, David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett, George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. .......... They all have a history of promoting abortion and using their vast fortunes to benefit groups like Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business...............That Gates pushed the wealthy group into settling on population control as their "umbrella cause" isn’t surprising given that he outlined an ambitious project in February to reduce the world’s population by one billion, would eliminate one of out every projected nine people on the planet, or 11 percent....... Hmmmm The Gates Foundation goes around the world sterilizing, killing.... I mean vaccinating the poor.

    My point Obama/Killary will not save us.... Mainline Republican Candidates will not save us..... WHO WILL ACTUALLY VET POLITICAL CANDIDATES..... We need a print media outlet that will do a full printed investigation of each candidate.

    Speaking negatively about the President during this time of war is treasonous.

    Last time I looked we are not at war. We just occasionally drop a bomb here and there.

    Wow, what a great revelation: The president has used the expression "not rest" when he didn't mean literally. He meant, literally "not be satisfied." Be sure that makes it into the articles of impeachment, y'all.

    Are you putting words into the presidents mouth? How do you know what his interpretation of 'not rest' is?

    Oh my! You're right! I forgot this president must be held to higher standards of English usage than any other president. Idiomatic expressions are prohibited along with many other things. Like golf.

    Did you all forget what Boner said when Obama got elected? He said they would block any and everything that Obama tried to do to make him look like a failure....my how soon we forget

    Debbie: What Boehner and other Republican leaders voiced back then was an intent to stop Obama's AGENDA. A goal many of us agreed with. I don't think it had much to do with "making him look like a failure."

    No, rlw895. And speaking of dross, the tonnage of verbiage delivered by you and your more scholarly (?) alter ego makes you the drossmeister of DR commentary. You are a never ending source comments on any subject.
