Thursday our president said, “I don’t bluff.” later on that same day at one of four fund raisers held in Wall Street he said this: “But I promised you, but I promised you, I promised you back then that I would always tell you what I believe. I would always tell you where I stood.”
There is good reason to believe Obummer on this, at least in some areas. For instance,
His soon-to-be Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, promised to raise gasoline prices to European levels. (September, 2008, interview with the WSJ)
He vowed to ” ‘invest’ $15 billion a year in alternative energy projects and create 5 million new ‘green jobs’ “. The money was spent (the jobs creation part evaporated,but let’s blame Bush for that).
He promised to repeal the Bush era tax cuts (2008 campaign).
Obama hasn’t lived up to his word, yet, on many of these threats but he seems to be gearing up to run for another four years in office when, without the threat of an election defeat that would toss him from office (and wouldn’t the Chief Vacationer be pissed off at that!), he’ll be free to try again. I believe him.
