Obama Broken Promises - I Will Not Lie to Greenpeace & Environmental Groups to Help Get Elected

Campaign Promise # 69: Environmental Promises
This one is pretty simple…I promise not to go back on environmental promises once elected President. Obama talks a great game but as we have seen pursues all the same Bush oil and energy policies. Say one thing, do another.

Obama’s latest broken promise to the environment stems from what he put in writing as a Presidential candidate to Greenpeace:

“As president, I will ensure that the U.S. provides leadership in enforcing international wildlife protection agreements, including strengthening the international moratorium on commercial whaling. Allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable.”

Guess what has happened since Yo’ Mama Obama took office:

  • The Obama Administration is currently supporting a position within the International Whaling Commission that would allow the re-start of worldwide commercial whaling
  • Right now countries like Japan, Norway, and Iceland are pushing for this deal, including opening up the Southern Ocean Whales Sanctuary for whaling.
