Broken Promises by Obama

I got this link of the broken promises by Obungler, truth be told some of the ones I saw I am glad that he didn't get.  that being said, this proves that he is an empty suit and a politician, and will say what ever is necessary to get elected.  Not the 2nd coming like certain members of the media has portrayed him to be.   I kinda wonder of Chris Mathew still gets the tingle down his leg like before.
