Yes, I think he is doing exactly what he said he would when he got into office.
Sort of. I think it may take him longer to do some things than I previously thought.
No, he hasn't done anything useful in office and I don't think he ever will.

Good site, thanks for the link.
So after reviewing the site a bit , I come up with :
512 promises made, and 41 kept, which equals 8%.
I reviewed some of the particulars, and there is probably a bit of fudge on both sides, but relatively objective overall.
Also, being objective, I have got to say that the ones he has kept are relatively small potatoes.
The "sunshine" policy of posting a law before signing it was a big deal, specifically to me, because it was a significant part of how Obama appealed to the centrists. The idea is so very common sense, that it appeals to American Voters of Either party or none. I think a big promise, to the middle, is an important one to follow through on, since the middle is who decides elections these days.
The No Lobbyists in the White House promise ? Pretty important to the "tenor" of the presidency he was promising. Promise thouroughly broken.
Given the system of government he has to work with and the on going situations right now you can't blame him. Clinton tried the same in 94 to sort health care but it was not his fault it failed.
Until America is ready to support a system where by a certain number of people are entitled to free health care the same issue will come round again.
In Scotland party's learn to put differences aside for common political good.
