  • You really think that Fox News is the only honest network left? The entire election and since they have done nothing but bash and discredit our President and any other dem/lib. And now Sarah Palin is joining the team, and somehow they are HONEST? WTF?????????

  • I watched it. I am glad that they went back and showed what he said then, what he says now, and what he said in between. Too bad that some who think he does no wrong won't watch it, and have forgotten how much he has flipped from what he said as a candidate. I plan on watching it again tonight, just in case I missed something last night.

  • well, why dont you try looking at ANY PRESIDENT. Every one of them made promises that they eventually abandon during their leadership in office. Its not that Obama is a liar or full of shit...things change and he has advisers that have to make work for the evolving economy. What's full of shit is the Fox news station and viewers like you that don't post and view the contradicting issues form BOTH sides.

  • Anon... since every president does it, it's okay? Way to turn this into a Fox News thing, rather than the issue at hand.

  • It IS an issue at hand. And the BIG issue is the fact that narrow minded people want to point fingers without first admitting to their own mistakes. And further more the Fox news thing was already apart of the convo, I simply emphasized. If you are going to point out one president, why not shed light to all of them. Right and wrong is not up for debate, what are YOU going to do to change your own life? We the people have to stand for ourselves b/c the media divides us all into very limited thinkers.

    They did it too! They did it too! Now go ahead and call everyone a racist so you can get it out of your system. Some of his broken promises have nothing to do with the economy or changing situations. No lobbyists appointed to his cabinet? No closed door negotiations on legislation? 5 days to read bills? There is no external force that prevents those promises from being kept. It's all on him.

  • But, he doesn't claim his own words. He denies them, or acts like they were never spoken. He did learn from the best though. "It depends on what the definition of is - is."

  • All candidates will make promises based on the limited information available prior to being in office. It isn't until after the election and the transitional meetings that president-elects gain full disclosure and in those meetings, the reality of breaking some of those "promises" takes shape. It is inevitable, regardless of who is elected to office. Bush was briefed of the impending threat of a major attack on American soil during the transitional meetings with Clinton. He, however, chose to do nothing until it was too late. Once Obama learned of the limitations of his proposals (perhaps this would be a better campaign term than promises), he began to act and has been working his ass off since. Of course, there are plenty--especially on here, who will dispute that all was roses and candy canes prior to 1/20/09. Some dogs are just too stupid to learn new tricks.
