Keeping Track of Obama's Nearly 600 Campaign Promises

Cool site CVC, thanks for posting.

Number 18 is a new one that I haven't heard about. That may actually be kinda nice.

That is a nice concise way to keep track of Obama's promises.

Not sure I want the IRS doing my taxes! neener!
Well on second thought, if Geithner does them for me, maybe I'll come out ahead! Especially if I use his version of Turbotax. Laugh

We should have a pool. Guess the total number of campaign promises fulfilled by years end and a second category of major campaign promises (e.g. health care, Iraq, etc.) fulfilled by year's end.

You have a point cowgal.
Wonder what happens if a mistake on the return is discovered?

The website is neat, but I'll be amazed if he accomplishes even a quarter of what he promised. If he he does follow through, he'll definately show he's different.

My issue with Obama all along has been that he promised the world knowing he couldn't deliver. The gulliable and naive fell for his line of change while I believed there was all glitter and no substance to the man.

This website will be a nice barometer to see if I was right or wrong.

There are a few we DON'T want him to accomplish!

No. 320: Repeal law that limits gun-tracing by law enforcement
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/promise/320/repeal-law-...

I could not find the promises of banning semi-auto firearms, implementing micro-stamping, increasing taxes on ammo & firearms, etc. Think

Plus add up the price tags of all these new programs. The money printing press is going to have to work at high speed 24/7. Maybe we should start a pool guessing what our deficit will be at the end of 4 years and how many generations it will take to pay off!

I do like this one:
No. 234: Allow five days of public comment before signing bills
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/promise/234/allow-five-...

And the following..
No. 235: Require more disclosure and a waiting period for earmarks
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/promise/235/require-mor...

No. 284: Expand access to places to hunt and fish
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/promise/284/expand-acce...
Not sure why he's involved in this area though, since this involves ranchers and farmers, not federal land.

No. 285: Provide more funds to educate young hunters and anglers
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/promise/285/provide-mor...

No. 493: Give Al Gore a key role on global warming Think
