I titled this no broken promises because President Obama have not broken any promises as of yet. Most of his promises, he have not gotten around to yet.
Hell he has only been in office 18 months. You all know how slow Congress is. What the hell do people expect? America is so starved, impatient, ungrateful and ungraceful that it is almost impossible for any President to satisfy anyone. I don't care who is in office.
The Liberals and Democrats also some Moderates are pounding the President and his Cabinet daily for something, anything. Everyone is hollering "He need to use the bully pullpit" weekly if not daily to announce their cause. Or whatever they are fighting for.
Then when he do give a speech or comment on their cause they still are not satisfied. Saying, he should do it more, if he spoke out more than people would listen.
I don't get it. What the hell is wrong with people? They even have a website to rate the Presidents promises.
I guess the President should go out to the South Lawn daily and proclaim.
My Fellow Americans,
Our Gay Friends in America and around the world is still getting a raw deal. I am still fighting Congress to get them to pass a bill repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". We will get there I promise we will get there. Call your Congressional Leaders daily and tell them to pass the dam bill. I will sign it.
My Fellow Americans we are and as of this moment winding down troops in Iraq. It won't be and is not something we can do in an instant, but we are getting out of Iraq.
My Fellow Americans, we will start, repeat, start to draw down troops in Afghanistan July 2011. We are not going to stay there forever. Afghans have to take care and control of their own country.
My Fellow Americans, Environmental and Peta groups we are working daily for the whales, birds, bears, cats, dogs, fish and other animals on earth to make sure they are treated fairly and just.
We are working to make sure the air, land oceans, seas, and rivers even creeks are not contaminated by any oil or chemicals. That the land is safe to farm on, the air is safe to breathe.
My Fellow Americans, I am working with Congress to past a strong Climate Bill. Call your Senate Representatives daily and tell them to pass a strong Climate Bill that will hold for years to come.
My Fellow Americans, I urge Congress to pass a strong Comprehensive Immigration Bill. That will and can lead to citizenship for millions of illegals in America. It's better to have them on record working paying taxes into the system to assist in bringing down the US debt, than have them in the shadows, not contributing to the country that they live in.
My Fellow Americans, to the Unions we are working to assist the private sector in creating jobs for the American people. This job situation did not happen overnight, and will not be fixed overnight. You all have to be patient. The last 8 or 9 years our jobs have left for cheap labor overseas. We have to create new ways to manufacture goods within the United States. It is going to take time. The banks and businesses are waiting on Congress to pass the new financial laws in the new Bill, so the businesses will know how to construct their businesses.
No one is going to start or invest in new businesses without knowing what their backing is going to look like. That is common sense. The jobs are coming slow but sure.
My Fellow Americans, we have lowered taxes for 95% of Americans and Businesses. Tax cuts and tax breaks for millions of Businesses and Americans.
We have a Democratic Congress that have done more, and passed better laws to help the American People than any Congress in years.
My Fellow Americans, all races and nationalities, Black, White, Hispanic, Chinese, Korean, Dutch, Indian, so on and so on. I am thinking of you every day, all of your wants, needs and desires.
Then I guess he should just come out of the Oval Office every morning 7 days a week and repeat everyone's gripes and wishes so that they will know that he is thinking of them daily. That should quiet down some of everyone's griping that he don't use his bully pulpit enough to proclaim their problems or interests.
I could go on and on, on with his supposed daily statement to America. Even if President Obama was not in office, some Americans would not be satisfied. These groups are expecting him to holler about their interests daily. America have become a country of "Right Now", More, More More, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Impatience, and Instant Gratification. The attention span of a nat or fly.
The man have only been in office for 18 months. Give him a break so he can get some things done in peace. So far President Obama and the Democratic Congress have done more in the 18 months he have been in office than the last 2 or 3 Presidents combined. Go to whitehouse.gov and take a look for proof.
America stop with the broken promises crap. The President still have 2 1/2 years to go. Stop with the gimme and impatience syndrome. Liberals, Democrats and Moderates finally have someone in the Whitehouse who is willing to work with them to help to get their issues addressed. Don't run him away. People seem to forget. President Obama don't care about winning another election. He said himself. And I believe him. He would rather be a great one term President than a mediocre two term President. He want to do big and great things. So he feel that if he is reelected great. But he is not counting on it. So give him the time and the grace he needs to do the job. No way in hell do I want to see a Republican President for many years to come after what we have gone through.
He has already shown that if he has promised it, he will try to get the job done. But he also need people in Congress to pass his agenda. So it is up to the voters, and all the special interest groups to hound Congress to get the laws passed that he need to complete his agenda. And put people in office who will help and support the President with his agenda. So America it's up to you, not the President. If the President had your interest in the form of a law he would sign it. So stop the bitchin and groaning. And you get to work.
And remember he have not totally broke promises yet, he haven't been in office long enough, everything is not completed as of yet. Also half a loaf is better than nothing at all. Goodness have some grace. There is nothing that have passed in Congress that we can't go back and readdress. To either strip it or make the law better. Again America you get to work, and make some things happen. Support our President.
