And no one said the republican party had to honor Obama's promises. but that doesn't mean they don't factor into what has happened. They are part of the forces that are blocking efforts. You can't divoce them from that. You may promise to win a race. I don't want you to win, so I tie your feet together. I can't then say I'm not resonsibile because I didn't promise you'd win the race. I still tied you up.
The fact is congress, bot democrats and republicna, have been a hinderence. That is simply fact. And you can't remove their role in this.
