Broken Promises

Just 4 days after he's been elected and "The One" is already breaking promises...

The first broken promise was the one where the candidate of "change" was going to bring a new tone to Washington. This one has been broken by Obama's choice for Chief of Staff: Rahm Emanuel. Representative Emanuel (D- Illinois) is a hard-core, far left, liberal as well as being an old Clinton hack. Not only that, but Emanuel is not a "new tone" kind of guy but is a Pit bull of epic proportions. The parallel would have been McCain claiming a new tone but picking Karl Rove as his Chief of Staff. Emanuel is little different than Terry MCauliffe or Howard Dean in his vehement and vocal attacks on Republicans. So much for the "new tone" Obama claimed he wanted to foster.

And now comes his second broken promise. Politico reported on November 5 that Barack Obama has stepped back from his claim that lobbyists would not have a place in his new administration.

How long will it before he admits that giving 95% of the people of this country a tax cut ain't gonna happen?
