He is living up to Biden's expectaions
raided medical marijuana dispenseries (sp?) in CA
promised 5-day comment period on bills and didn't follow it (bailout package)
reneged on promise to pull troops out of Iraq in 16 mos
reneged on promise to keep lobbyists out of white house
and, of course, warrantless wiretaps
here's a site that supposedly tracks Obama's promises http://politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/?page=3
of course, they don't call "troops out of Iraq" a promise broken, but it is worth a look
Look for that Keith Olbermann video where Olbermann is hating on Obama for doing Bush's wiretapping dirty-work, and more intrusively. I posted it on my facebook wall. The one friend of mine who's a total commie is coming around to disliking Obama I think, even though there's no way in hell I'll ever convince him that libertarianism as a whole is good. But hating Barack Obama is a good baby step.
That site might be kinda of progressive im not sure. I just say it is because they divided up broken promises with the word compromise.Code:http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/
and some of the promises being fulfilled like doubling foreign aid are not necessarily good promises to begin with, but deciding what is good and bad is up to you.
Oh yeah a huge tax increase on people making less than 250k. (cig taxes) doubled to pay for health care. Not really a fair tax when the tax is over 125 percent on that one thing. The poor and working class who smoke will suffer the most with that tax. Also its what they consider a "healthy tax". a slippery slope if you ask me. Next will be alcohol, soda and sugary items.

Look up the Bush Doctrine I'm sure you could find some bullet points on Obama's List of Accomplishments!
But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks, and the corporations which grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
