For your amusement, Jim Geraghty has posted a list of at least 16 promises from Obama that have expired within his first 100 days. (For you non-mathy readers, that’s an average of one broken promise every 6 days.)
Jim notes that once his readers find the post, he will no doubt receive many more submissions. I’ll be curious to see if he can get 100 broken promises for each of the 100 days in office.

It occurred to me shortly after the election that John McCain didn’t win because he ran as a Democrat, and were it not for Sarah Palin would have lost be a considerable larger margin than he did, whereas Barack Obama ran sounded almost Libertarian-esque. He promised tax cuts, job creation, less interventionist policies, a reduction in spending, a reduction in pork, more openness in government, more accountability, and a reduction in influence by lobbyists. He promised to maintain (but not advance) civil rights that had been constantly and consistently attacked by his party, such as the right to keep and bear arms. He made all of these promises that appeal to the center and to Libertarian voters along with the usual Leftist/Socialist gobbledygook.
Anybody who took even the slightest glance at his history and voting record and associations would have been able to see that every promise that came out of his mouth was a bald faced lie. Knowing now that his obvious lies are now irrefutable, is of no consequence. Anybody with half a brain must have known on November 5th that this guy wasn’t going to do the things he promised. The fact that so many people were dumb enough to believe this Marxist scumbag is the real tragedy.
I think it’d be quite a stretch to attribute libertarianism to the man who said “when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everyone.”
Sure, lots of libertarians were fooled because of the abysmal presidency of Dubya, but I attribute that to a fault in their reasoning more than a feature of Obama’s campaign.
