It’s very hard for the online political activist, much less the average citizen, to keep track of all the Obama deceptions and misdirections. And what about the broken promises? You know, like the pledge to post all bills online for five days for the public to read before the President signed anything.
Well, the Cato Institute’s Jim Harper lays it out in detail: A little over 240 days in, the Obama White House is 1-for-61 in keeping this basic promise. As Harper notes, “That’s a .016 average, baseball fans.” In most cases, he notes that it would have been very easy to do.
That kind of slump should put somebody on the bench … and we’re not talking the federal court system here.
And besides, lately there have been more important things for Obama to do: like distancing himself from the corrupt political train wreck known as ACORN.
