Promises, Promises

By Peter Wehner

Barack Obama has an accountability problem. It’s not simply that during the 2008 campaign he made extravagant promises to heal the planet, slow the rise of the oceans, end political divisions in America, and usher in an era of hope and change. It’s that as a candidate and in the early days of his presidency, Obama and his top aides made a series of very specific promises on a range of issues.

Mr. Obama’s biggest problem isn’t with the Republicans; it’s with his own (unfulfilled) promises.
