Jim Geraghty from NRO has completed all Obama's promises that he choose not to honor, but he made those promises to get elected. We call that "fooling people and lying to them" ...That's a character!
3. Opposed a Colombian Free Trade Agreement because advocates ignore that "labor leaders have been targeted for assassination on a fairly consistent basis."
17. "Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days." Obama is 1-for-11 on this promise so far.

Remember these events during his camping? The strange thing is that the "fainting" incidents stopped the moment the media began noticing a trend. We covered this issue back in June of 2008.

Laying his plan for a President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, Obama began to name the members of PCAST listed in his prepared remarks – before realizing he’d already introduced them, earlier in his speech.
“In addition to John – sorry, the – I just noticed I jumped the gun here,” Obama said, pausing for several seconds as he looked at the prompter. “Go ahead. Move it up. I had already introduced all you guys.”
The audience, which gave the president a warm reception, responded with a quiet laugh.

Robert Reich, a Democrat and a fan of this President, had ,this to say about Obama's 100 days:
I give them an F. I’m a big fan of this administration, but I’ve got to be honest. The bailouts are failing. So far American taxpayers have shoveled out almost $600 billion. Yet the banks are lending less money than they did five months ago. Their toxic assets and nonperforming loans are growing, bank executives are still taking home princely sums, and the banks are still cooking their books. And now the Treasury is talking about converting taxpayer dollars into bank equity, which exposes taxpayers to even greater losses.

"The United State must recognize the events of 1915-1923 carried out by the Ottoman Empire, as Genocide. The Bush administration's refusal to do so is inexcusable""America deserves a leader who speaks thoughtfully about the Armenian Genocide and responds forcefully to all genocide, I intend to be that President'
UPDATE: Obama chickened out: President Barack Obama on Friday refrained from branding the massacre of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians in Turkey a "genocide," breaking a campaign promise while contending his views about the 20th century slaughter had not changed..
How convenient!!! "his views has not changed"...well, if it has not changed, why not say it!!! If you really want to know why is it matter to recognize the Genocide? We suggest to go and read it here.

- “Highest ethical standards” are proof we will get Richardson, Geithner, Daschle, Solis, etc. nominated who cannot or do not pay all their taxes—among other things.
- Christian, Sermon-on-the-Mount declarations about forgiveness and ‘moving forward, not backward’ indicate that “Bush did it” is the now the standard throat-clearing before every speech abroad.
- Talking about “financial sobriety” and “halving the deficit” guarantee that we will triple the annual deficit
- Soaring rhetoric about the reset button, a new softness, more listening, a new page, etc. assure us that we will have no moral compass, and treat Venezuela like Columbia, Georgia like Russia, Iran like Iraq—the more we hear of a new morality, the more we know there will be no moral distinctions.
Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, we have begun to modernize 75% of all federal building space, which has the potential to reduce long-term energy costs by billions of dollars on behalf of taxpayers. We are providing grants to states to help weatherize hundreds of thousands of homes, which will save the families that benefit about $350 each year. That’s like a $350 tax cut.
And HotAir had this to respond:
First off, saving $350 a year on energy savings is not “like a tax cut”. He tried making that same argument about lower interest rates on mortgages, too. The grant helps in paying for the weatherization, but the cost savings are just that. A tax cut is when government takes less of your money, not when energy companies take less of your money. By that definition, a broken lightbulb is like a tax cut, too, and thanks to cap-and-trade, it’ll get you used to the dark, too.

Obama Earth Day Flights Burned More Than 9,000 Gallons Of Fuel...now that is something to be proud of on the Earth Day. Read the report here.

Thus far, the Obama administration seems more interested in continuing its global apology tour, Latin edition, during this weekend's Fifth Summit of the Americas than he is in leading. His accusations against America are stronger than his promotion of the institutions and treaties that bring authentic democracy and prosperity to our hemisphere.IBD Editorial
Could you please find someone to teach President Obama about Monroe Doctrine and help him understand our contribution to Latin America has been greater than our faults.

Well, we can be grateful that he did not bow to Chavez!
We hope Obama will this lesson soon, before he gets bullies by the dictators of the world.

Aboard Air Force One en route to Mexico City, White House press secretary came back to "gaggle" with us, though he said the gaggle could not be on camera.
Here are the two questions I asked during the gaggle.
TAPPER: First of all, just for the record, I'd like to voice my objection to this being off camera, on behalf of the TV people. President Obama has said that it's --
GIBBS: To be on camera, Jake, you'd have to comb your hair. (Laughter.)
TAPPER: No, I wouldn’t --
GIBBS: -- for the record.
TAPPER: -- the camera would be on you. The camera would be on you.

What makes this so classic is the pose Obama strikes while waiting for the Teleprompter to move. And how difficult is it to remember Liberté, egalité, fraternité — especially when it’s the theme of the “we’re really all the same” speech Obama was giving? H/T: Hotair

An email from a sergeant that was there.
“We were pre-screened, asked by officials “Who voted for Obama?”, and then those who raised their hands were shuffled to the front of the receiving line. They even handed out digital cameras and asked them to hold them up.”
Take a look at the picture at AP and notice all the cameras are the same models? Coincidence? I think not.
Now this the "CHANGE" we have been waiting for, more public manipulation!

Its appears Hillary, the mom, has taken, Obama, the son, for a walk in the sandbox. Isn't there a room in the White House they could have a private conversation? Or they this, so their conversation would not be recorded? This is definitely a CHANGE that we have not seen before. Obama finally came through with his change!

Daily Telegraph: “Obama’s speech in Strasbourg went further than any United States president in history in criticising his own country’s action while standing on foreign soil.”
Watch Obama Euro-appeasing words here: ( H/T to Occidental Soapbox)
Is Obama willing to denigrate America in order to boost his own personal popularity in other countries? Is this what he is trying to do? hmmm.

His performance at the first press conference in London with Gordon Brown featured moments in which he sparkled - his riff on loving the Queen was a high-point. But most of the serious answers that I listened to were interminable, windy and not very impressive. At points there were pauses so long that it appeared he had simply lost his train of thought.A wind-bag!!! wow...well, lets wait and see if American press will agree with him in a year from now. We will be here to document it.::But Obama was only warming up. "When I was born," (Everything usually leads back to him, you'll notice)... "the world was divided, and our nations were faced with very different circumstances. Few people would have predicted that someone like me would one day become an American President." (Him again)...The Obamas have handled their trip well and in their public appearances have been a credit to their country. But I'll wager that within a year or so he'll be marked down as a wind-bag.
We know that transformational change is possible. We know this because of three reasons: First, because, for all our differences, there are certain values that bind us together and reveal our common humanity: the universal longing to live a life free from fear, and free from want; a life marked by dignity and respect and simple justice.So freedom from "fear" and "want" are Western values that bind us together? Since when? That's kind of bizarre. Freedom from "want" and "simple justice" sound more like something Karl Marx would say than George Washington.
Our two republics were founded in service of these ideals. In America, it is written into our founding documents as "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." In France: "Liberté" -- (applause) -- absolutely -- "egalité, fraternité." (Applause.) Our moral authority is derived from the fact that generations of our citizens have fought and bled to uphold these values in our nations and others.

Here is a report about someone who wanted to Kiss Obama and Obama's reaction to the whole thing:
Cecilia Dervogne, a student at the University of Strasbourg, was among a noisy crowd of well-wishers greeting the Obamas as they arrived today.How childish Obama acted. Is this how we want our President act on the world stage, while his wife is just 2 step behind?
As they approached the crowd to shake hands, Ms Dervogne called out to him.
'I said in slightly hesitating English... 'A kiss for me?'' Ms Dervogne told i-tele television.
'He showed me his bodyguards, who were surveying everything. I think there was a security gap we were supposed to keep to,' she said.
Mr Obama also apparently pointed out that his wife, Michelle, was watching.
But Mr Sarkozy would not be deterred, Ms Devogne said.
'And there was Mr Sarkozy who re-insisted and said: 'What, you're not going to give her a kiss?'
'So he offered his cheek timidly and I gave him a kiss.'
Bowing to royalty is symbolic of that monarch’s power over his or her subjects. Obama's deep subservient bow to the Saudi King is unbelievable and notice how even he bends his foot. This the monarchy where they have no freedom of religion or human rights. This is the monarchy that threats their women population like a dirt, and prosecutes Christian coverts, and we get our President to bow to them!!!! Outrageous!. One blogger had this comment:
When Obama met Saudi Arabian King Abdullah, he sank into a bow that made some watching wonder if he was fixing to lick the king’s shoes. At its best it is unbecoming of an American President to bow to a foreign king, or its just cluelessUPDATE: With bowed head and bended knee
UPDATE II: Obama Bow Wow
