The Republican National Committee -- once again -- has released an important and startling infographic detailing the president’s myriad failures:

This list is far from exhaustive, since the president has broken so many campaign promises over the last three and a half years, it’s almost impossible to keep track at this point. President Obama’s failure to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, for example, could certainly make the cut. Let’s remember, too, after then-Senator Obama was elected President of the United States (and even before, I guess) he was deeply committed to unifying the nation. Since that time, however, he has increasingly relied upon unfair – and factually inaccurate – attack ads in order to distract voters from his own failings and divide Americans. And while it's obvious the president will say or do just about anything to win reelection, I think this chart is particularly devastating precisely because it reminds us the "Hope and Change" candidate -- whom we swept into office in 2008 -- has consistently and repeatedly failed to live up to his own lofty standards.
