The Debate Between Obama's Promises and His Record

Obama got to speak three minutes longer than Romney and he still couldn't convince me he knows anything about leadership. I was disappointed that the moderator didn't let Romney respond to some of Obama's comments. Hardly fair in a debate. Obama sketched out what he would do in a second term but the question is with almost four years in office why hasn't he done it up til now? I was very disappointed in Obama's answers on energy independence. I liked Romney's answer that if his energy policy was working prices would be going down not up. Getting America energy independent is a very big thing with me and relates directly to jobs. Romney's position on energy independence is enough by itself to give him my vote. Sorry Obama.

Just symbolic to me is the gulf coast suppression of drilling/producing oil. Last year from our balcony there were 31 drilling/pumping rigs visible. More than 30 sites for oil recovery cleanup functioning daily around the clock. Last week from the same location there were 6 drilling platforms/oil pumping rigs. Oil cleanup still continues but we saw no full shifts and merely patrols riding up and down the beach with fewer people and nothing to clean up. In the bay west of Gulf Shores AL, which was heavily populated with working rigs and many additional rigs as backup, there were less than a dozen where there were several scores of rigs last year. This is certainly NOT what energy independence looks like.

"once is accidental,twice is coincidence,three times is enemy action."
Comrade Obama blocked nuclear power by closing Yucca Mountain,is going after coal via EPA,has blocked Gulf and ANWR oil drilling,and is now going after fracking,doing everything possible to block US oil production. He killed the Keystone XL pipeline. Coal,oil,and nuclear is over 70% of US energy sources.
See a pattern here? there's a concerted effort by Comrade Obama to reduce US energy supplies,which DIRECTLY diminishes the US economy.
Then there's the LOST treaty and it's "redistribution of wealth".
It's all part of his efforts to weaken the US economically,politically,and militarily.

Consider the words of the man Comrade Obama hired as his top adviser on science and technology, John P. Holdren:

“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to DE-DEVELOP the United States. . . . Resources and energy must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling the genuine needs of underdeveloped countries. This effort must be largely political.”
The usual spin from both sides declaring victory in the vice presidential debate underscores just how stunning and unusual Romney's blowout win in the first presidential debate was. That win up-ended the race and catapulted Romney into the lead in most national polls. President Obama, in turn, has reacted by shifting his campaign's central theme from the implausible claim that Romney is an extreme conservative to an accusation that he's a flip-flopper. But it is Obama who has a head-spinning record of, on issue after issue, doing the opposite of what he promised on the campaign trail in 2008.
