    It's interesting how those who will toe any line the republicans draw are completely incapable of imagining that other people might not do the same thing.

    yes, and they have colours. I'm admittedly not au courant with the hippity-hoppity subculture so prevalent among the urban youth, but it is my understanding that flash identifies with the red ones. I believe they term themselves "bloods" (sp?).

    You mean broken promises like these?

    Increase the capital gains and dividends taxes for higher-income taxpayers

    Expand the child and dependent care credit

    Create a foreclosure prevention fund for homeowners

    Create a $10 billion fund to help homeowners refinance or sell their homes.

    End income tax for seniors making less than $50,000

    Create a $60 billion bank to fund roads and bridges

    Repeal the Bush tax cuts for higher incomes

    Phase out exemptions and deductions for higher earners

    Sign the Employee Free Choice Act, making it easier for workers to unionize

    Lift the payroll tax cap on earnings above $250,000

    Forbid companies in bankruptcy from giving executives bonuses

    Allow workers to claim more in unpaid wages and benefits in bankruptcy court

    Well, if we're comparing teams, he's at least doing better than his GOP counterparts, who are at 18%. I don't know, I'd say 47% at least is pretty good, with potentially more to come. The number that is explicitly broken at least is relatively small in comparison.

    "Expand the Senior Corps volunteer program" is not the same as "Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center".

    Lumping them together is an attempt to hide the heavy failure.

    For comparison of rated promises, btw, the numbers break out to:
    Obama / GOP leadership (however that's defined)
    Kept: 36% / 41%
    Broken: 14% / 9%
    Compromise: 11% / 4.55%

    Yes, if only politifact had picked, I don't know, a top 25 promises or something, and put a link to that right from that main page.

    Also, I was presenting flash with a list of promises that he could pick from, if you were following the thread.
