I found this website while researching a thread, it makes for some interesting reading.

PolitiFact.com




PolitiFact has compiled more than 500 promises that Barack Obama made during the campaign and is tracking their progress on our Obameter.

We rate their status as No Action, In the Works or Stalled. Once we find action is completed, we rate them Promise Kept, Compromise or Promise Broken.

The report card at right provides an up-to-the-minute tally of all the promises.



Here's how they rank it so far:

The Obameter Scorecard

* Promise Kept 34

* Compromise 11

* Promise Broken 7

* Stalled 12

* In the Works 77

* No Action 374


I don't know, it looks like he's not doing too bad a job. What do you think?

Promise Kept rulings on the Obameter

Promise Broken rulings on the Obameter


I'm just naturally skeptcal of Politicians promising the world, and 500 promises, that's one every three days(of a four year term). Come on, that's impossible.

Actually the main site is quite interesting as well:

Politifact.com

They monitor comments and statements by Poiliticians and rate them.
