A lot of people, especially those on tv whose opinions are bought and paid for in advance, insist the president hasn’t gotten anything done his first year in office.
On the contrary. Politifact’s “obameter” keeps track of anything and everything he said he’d try to do in office, and he made 510 statements that could be called campaign promises.
Of the 510 he’s already kept 91. 275 more are “in the works” (many waiting for congressional approval) and so on.
The Obameter Scorecard
- Promise Kept 91
- Compromise 33
- Stalled 87
At this pace he could conceivably be the first president in history to actually DO most of the shit he says he’s going to do while in office.
And that’s with the republicans doing everything they can to hold up congress.
