Obama’s Broken Promises

Although I have linked to most of the posts I’ve written for David Horowitz’s NewsRealBlog, I forgot to inform you all that I have become a regular contributor there. I contacted them a while back myself, asking them whether they could use more contributors. If so, I said, I’d love to write for them and help them reach their goals. Shortly after I was hired.

NewsRealblog’s mission is to tell you ‘who the day’s newsmakers on the political Left really are – exposing their track-records, their worldviews, their key affiliations, and their agendas. You can read the “news” in many places. NewsReal enables you to understand what the news — glib chatter, easy assertions, partisan charges — really means.’ Most contributors have their own ‘beat,’ mine is MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” about whom I write a post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. In addition to those three posts about “Morning Joe,” I will also contribute on Sundays when there is more room for spirituality at NRB.

My latest post for NewsReal is called “Obama’s Broken Promises.” It is a reaction to Friday morning’s “Morning Joe” show, when NBC’s Chuck Todd, “Meet the Press” host David Gregory, and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island) discussed the question of whether the Obama administration is making good on its campaign promises.

I write:

Unsurprisingly, Sen. Sheldon answered in the affirmative, while Gregory and Todd were slightly more critical. “Has ‘yes we can,’ become ‘maybe’?” Gregory wondered aloud. Todd and host Joe Scarborough added that you get the impression that the White House has given a certain lead away in the health care debate.

Although Obama has yet to deliver on his promise to reform America’s health care system, and though I certainly agree that the health care debate is both interesting and important, ”Morning Joe” could also have focused on other, perhaps  more important, subjects.

For instance, Britain’s Telegraph recently compiled a handy list of President Obama’s top ten unfulfilled pledges. Among them are…

Of course I can’t just copy and paste every post I write for them, so you’ll have to read the rest at NewsReal; be sure to do so, it’s a good summary of Obama’s most important broken promises, including the ones he made to Africa.
