Obama’s First 100 Blunders (in Office)

As we near the first anniversary of President Obama’s inauguration, it’s an appropriate time to consider his performance in office.  Here’s a list of 100 “lies, blunders, gaffes, and abuses of liberty” from the Humble Libertarian blog:

1. Promising to “publish all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days… before the President signs it,” then breaking that promise over and over again.

2. Despite promising to keep lobbyists out of his administration, Obama has broken his word again and again (making 17 exceptions to this promise in his first two weeks).

3. Obama promised to eliminate income taxation for seniors making less than $50,000 a year. He has broken this promise despite numerous opportunities to keep it, including the economic stimulus package and his administration’s first budget proposal.

4. The President also boasted during his campaign that “During 2009 and 2010, existing businesses will receive a $3,000 refundable tax credit for each additional full-time employee hired,” and has failed to keep his word.
