    Re: SOTU Poll

    Yep, its a gross exaggeration to say he's failed at all of his promises.

    That said, he has either stalled or moved the goal posts on an extremely large number of his promises thus far and one could argue that not doing it by the time you originally campaigned on could be a "failure" though I don't particularly do it myself.

    Guantanamo Bay is still open

    We're still going to have people indefinitely detained

    We're not going to be out of Iraq any faster than wish Bush's plans

    Health Care still isn't solved

    Little to nothings been done on immigration reform

    The top end Bush Tax cuts hasn't been repealed, and its looking more likely that its going to expire all together which won't just affect the top end earners.

    We haven't had every bill posted online for multiple days prior to him signing it

    We didn't have the health care debate broadcast the whole time on C-Span

    And those are just the stalled things and not touching stuff like Lobbyists which failed, which by fact checking accounts from ABC he even mislead people about in his SOTU address, or questionable things like his promises of "post partisanship" and "change from politics as usual"...

    Saying he's broken every promise he made is a great stretch. However, its also a bit dishonest to not point out he has moved the goal post for a lot of his promises and has failed to actually get many of his bigger promises completed as of yet. So while not failed, many of his campaign promises are woefully incomplete. His "stalled + failed" total is above his completed, and that's not even touching "incomplete" which is in the high 200's but is understandable at this point. Its his first year, he's got time to right that, but he also shouldn't have set such lofty rhetoric for how quick he'd have things done just to get elected if he wasn't going to go out of his way to make sure they happened.

    He had some highs(pushing to repeal DADT, some of his economic ideas are not bad), but overall, nothing great.

    Almost as if he does not know for sure when congress will get it done. Wow, thanks for pointing out that Obama cannot see the future, I never would have guessed....

    His speech was an arrogant array of lies. It was simply atrocious and I was appalled by it.

    No he wants no responsibility. If it is just another lie on his long list of lies it doesn't matter to him. He just wants people to think he will do something.

    Re: SOTU Poll

    I detest the State of The Union Requirement and they always bore me to tears, even when I like the sitting president. That being said I not only don't support this particular potus he makes me physically ill everytime he speaks, so I will not subject myself to an hour of his garbage. In other words, I don't care.

    The major promises, the ones that got him into office, have not been met. This includes getting us out of Iraq, closing Gitmo, fixing health care, etc. The things Politifact mentions that he's done are not the things he campaigned on, but things he mentioned once or twice.

    "Working on it" doesn't mean squat. Let's see him actually ACCOMPLISH something.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
