Jim Geraghty has The Complete List of Obama Statement Expiration Dates – complete as of today, but considering it’s early in the second year of the Obama
regime term, we can expect plenty more to come.
Here are a few items:
STATEMENT: “We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government, and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov.” – President Obama, January 28, 2009
EXPIRATION DATE: “More than two months after some of the funds were released, [Recovery.gov] offers little detail on where the money is going… The government [spent] $84 million on a website that doesn’t have a search function, when its purpose is to ‘root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government.’” April 2, 2009
Eighteen from his first 100 days:
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.
18. A special one on the 100th day, “the first thing I’d do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing I’d do.”
The 1 thing with no expiration date? Lonely Conservative has it,
Okay, not everything. When he talks of redistributing wealth, there’s no expiration date. The problem there is, when one sets out the redistribute wealth all one does is destroy wealth, ie: the poor don’t get rich, the rich get poorer. And opportunities for the poor disappear.
