Montage: 112 Unkept Promises from Earlier Obama SOTU Addresses :: Grabien
Just a reminder: a promise is NOT an accomplishment...
I found this on the Grabien.com website:
"The media are already analyzing the new proposals President Obama is set to layout this evening in his sixth annual State of the Union address (seventh if you count his unofficial 2009 address). Here at Grabien, we're also looking at results. Taking a look back at past SOTU promises, How many actually ever materialized?
The numbers aren't pretty. From 2009 through 2014, we count 112 promises that to date remain unfulfilled.
We should also note that many of these promises are duplicated from one year to another. For example, every year he has pledged to pass comprehensive immigration reform, overhaul corporate taxes, reduce regulations, and close Guantanamo Bay.
The full list is below."
