Barack Obama promised to change America. He has. But the one promise Obama kept has us on the verge of devastation. Ironically, the kept promise is the result of many broken promises.
Obama promised to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." He calls the Constitution a flawed document. He does what he wants to do without even consulting the Congress. Broken promise.
Obama promised he would cut the budget deficit in half. The deficit is over $16 trillion and continues to rise. Obama continues to spend money we don't have, and thinks taxing the rich will fix everything. (He might as well launch a spit wad at King Kong!) Broken promise.
Obama promised he would lower the unemployment rate. More than 23 million Americans are out of work. More than 47 million Americans are on food stamps. Broken promise.
Obama promised he would protect Medicare. He's taken millions of dollars out of Medicare to pay for "Obamacare". Broken promise.
Obama promised he would make America energy independent. He won't allow drilling for oil, won't allow Canada's Keystone Pipeline, won't allow coal production. Gas prices are beyond high. Broken promise.
Obama promised to unite the country. He promotes class conflict and uses the race card to deride and divide. He accuses everyone else for his own failures. Broken promise.
Obama promised to honor the military, and to make sure the men and women who fight to protect us have what they need to do their job. He wants to slash the defense budget by millions of dollars. Broken promise.
Obama promised to make America respected. He bows and apologizes to our enemies. He appeases those who seek to destroy us. America is mocked and our flag is desecrated. Our ambassador and three other brave Americans are murdered in Benghazi, Libya. Broken promise.
Obama promised he would be a one- term president if he failed. He wants to be president for another four years. Broken promise.
Time will tell if Americans are sick and tired of the broken promises. Four more years won't make Obama a good leader. If he's re-elected, the America we know and love will be no more.
