* Bumped Up *
Obama is or should be a disappointment to his most ardent Kool-Aid drinking supporters. He came to office with a long list of promises. Nearly four years later, few were kept.
The more pragmatic and cynical among us might simply dismiss his unkept promises as lies. A fine line divides a promise from a lie and is, to be sure, often subjective. Intent may offer clarity. Was the promise made knowing it could never be honored? Worse, that it would never be honored.
What are, in your personal opinion, the top five promises and top five lies Obama made to get into office, made during his presidency, or made in pursuit of re-election? Please include location, source, and date of the promise or lie.
