Promises to make the sale

There is always a great deal of cynicism about politicians and their promises. This last campaign seems to have been particularly fruitful on the promises part. Investor’s Business Daily has compiled A Checklist Of Obama’s Many Promises and suggests you “Clip it. Save it. And see how he did in four years.”

Few presidential candidates have made more specific promises to American voters than Barack Obama. They came so fast and furious in the latter part of the campaign, you’d be excused for not keeping up. So as a public service, we’ve put together a handy checklist of some of the biggest Obama promises — culled from his “Blueprint for Change,” his campaign speeches and advertisements.

For some, the profligate plethora of promises was a reason to be skeptical of the intellectual integrity behind them. For others, it may just be a feed for a cynical approach that dismissed them as they were made. Either way, the list of promises and their success in achieving office should be something to think about.
