Revisiting Obama's Campaign Promises

The list that follows is just a sampling of the campaign and Presidential promises Obama has broken. Truthfully, I didn't even realize he had proposed many of them...yearly "State of the World address?!" As someone that believes strongly in strict limitations of government's power...I am glad that most of these promises haven't come to fruition, but the bombing of Libya must be picking at open wounds for many of the uber-lefties that put Barack in the oval office.
