Campaign Promise # 22 - Broken Promises Voter Act

In campaigning around America over the last year, the one thing I am hearing more and more about yo-mama Obama is that he's just a smooth talker but doing all the same things as frat-boy Bushie.  Americans have a short memory, but many people can start to recall the number of broken promises by Obama...

I think most people are used to this from most of their politicians, so in 2012 by executive order I will decree the Broken Promises Voter Act which will require candidates for all federal elections to sign a legal document verifying their promises made before an election (if they don't follow my decree i'll get medieval on them with my CIA cronies).  The promises will then be classified by importance into three tiers based on voter polling.  Breaking of tier one and two promises will result in criminal liability and fines.  Tier 3 being less important will only carry civil liability.

One year into Obama, here are a few of his recent broken promises from over 500 made during the campaign:
  • Git-mo closed
  • No lobbyists in his administration (appointed Monsanto and Cargill cronies to top spots in FDA)
  • Tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials
  • Allow five days of public comment before signing bills
  • Double funding for afterschool programs
  • Allow bankruptcy judges to modify terms of a home mortgage
  • Support human mission to moon by 2020
  • Reduce earmarks to 1994 levels
  • Negotiate health care reform in public sessions televised on C-SPAN
  • Allow penalty-free hardship withdrawals from retirement accounts in 2008 and 2009 
The nice thing about Bush / Cheney is they didn't give a shit and make many promises...they just sold fear and did what they wanted...
