January 2009 — Obama claimed if stimulus bill passes unemployment would peak at 8 percent in eight months, decline by 5.6 percent in mid-2012. It has been 8 percent or higher for 43 months.
April 2010 — Obama: “We are beginning to turn the corner.”
June 2010 — Obama: “Our economy is getting stronger by the day.” Biden predicted job gains of 500,000/month
August 2010 — Geithner: “Welcome to the recovery”
Soon after taking office Obama stated, “If we can’t get this done in three years, this is going to be a one-term proposition”
Obama called Bush’s deficits “un-American.” They pale in size to deficits Obama ran up, trillion/year, every year! Obama’s budget plan submitted to Congress this year doesn’t even envision a balanced budget.
February 2009 — Obama pledged to cut deficit by half by end of his first term. Didn’t happen!
November 2008 — promised to recruit army of new teachers. Didn’t happen!
June 2008 — promised to help workers learn new skills they need. High unemployment remains!
July 2008 — stated U.S. must end dependence on foreign oil by 2018.
August 2008 — promised to make college more affordable. College costs have increased.
Now in Charlotte Obama promised to cut deficits by four trillion; recruit 100,000 math, science teachers; give two million workers chance to learn skills; cut oil imports in half by 2020; cut college tuitions in half.
Just a rehash of previous promises that didn’t come true. Why should anyone believe him now?
