Again, please keep in mind that this is only a fraction of the promises he has kept. I don’t think there is another president in recent history who could present such a list.
Obama ask us to reach out to Congress and ask for the following:
1. Extend payrol tax cuts
2. Approve New Road Construcion Bill
3. Agreement for trade deals to sell more good to countries around the world
4. Reform Patten systems to turn ideas into businesses
5. To put our Vetrans to work after they serve our country
Congress now has to finish the job of restructuring the defecit, not just with cost, we need a long term plan In place.
I have faith in our President, and he will prevail. I know of someone else who was so well-known for being followed by tax collectors, and speaking to, and teaching tax collectors that his persecutors used the very subject of taxation in an attempt to entrap him into giving out “illegal” tax advice.
“The Pharisees went and took counsel how they might entrap him in his talk. People we can’t move forward as a United Country with feelings of Jealousy, lies, corruption, envy, hate. Let’s all really try to focus on the real problem and stop blaming the President for the Problems that were left for him to solve. Let him solve them! Let’s face it, United States Government needs to be restructured, we have had problems for a long ,long time. Our problems did not just pop up the day after Obama became President. The cover up has been going on for years!
Let me ask you a serious question? Do you really think that any of the candidates can match Barack Obama’s intellect, accomplishments, and charisma? Please people, let’s stop the madnes! It is going to be pitiful and so embarassing for the United States when we watch the pathetic polititians dual with one another only to fall off or thier paper chariots and wash the feet of Barack Obama.
