Question: Has Obama kept all his campaign promises?
Answer: No. (Has anybody, ever? Also no.) Has he kept some? Yes. Which ones has he not kept that he should have? One that gets mentioned frequently is that he promised to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay and then didn't. True enough. Should he have? Maybe. I'd like to see us cede that territory back to Cuba. We basically stole it, didn't we? But whether we keep the territory or not I've never liked the idea of secret prisons. I have no say in what Cuba does, or China, or Russia. I do get to comment on what the U.S. does, though, and vote based on what the candidates say when they run for office. Maybe Romney should promise to close Gitmo. He could always back off it tomorrow ...
Question: Has Obama disappointed me, a 2008 and likely 2012 supporter?
Answer: Yes. Right from day one when he had Rick Warren at the inauguration to invoke the blessing of an almost certainly imaginary super being. Not that I don't understand it. Even if he thought it was a bad idea he'd have likely done it. Though he could have chosen somebody less 'controversial.'
I also have been very disappointed with his administrations continued prosecution of the 'War On Drugs.' They've even stepped it up and gone after dispensers of 'medical' marijuana in states which permit such dispensaries. Grade: F
Question: Would I like a better candidate to vote for?
Answer: yes. Anybody know of one? That's actually running? (I won't vote for Romney.)
