For the first hundred days of President Barack Obama's administration, here is a complete list of 100 blunders, mistakes, gaffes, and public policies
that threaten our freedom.
1. Promising to "publish all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days... before the President signs it," then breaking that promise
over and over again.
2. Despite promising to keep lobbyists out of his administration, Obama has broken his word again and again (making 17 exceptions to this promise in
his first two weeks).
3. Obama promised to eliminate income taxation for seniors making less than $50,000 a year. He has broken this promise despite numerous opportunities
to keep it, including the economic stimulus package and his administration's first budget proposal.
4. The President also boasted during his campaign that "During 2009 and 2010, existing businesses will receive a $3,000 refundable tax credit for
each additional full-time employee hired," and has failed to keep his word.
5. Obama promised a $4000 tax credit for college tuition, but backpedaled when he signed a much smaller $2,500 college tax credit into law.
6. Obama called presidential "signing statements" (letters of interpretation and recommendations attached to Congressional legislation)
unconstitutional... then attached a signing statement of his own to a $410 billion spending bill.
7. Taking a page out of the Bush Administration's playbook Obama applied shrill, frantic, fear-mongering rhetoric to assure passage of his stimulus
8. Obama did not criticize Congress for its secrecy and closed-door committee meetings in crafting the stimulus package despite his calls for greater
transparency in Washington.
9. Obama's Earth Day flights burned more than 9,000 gallons of fuel.
10. One promise Obama has kept is in his distribution of TARP II funds to non-financial institutions, which is contrary to the stated intention of
those funds in the legislation passed by Congress, making his action illegal, unconstitutional, and an expansion of unlimited executive power.
