    BARACK OBAMA

    A Long Post: The Complete List of Obama Statement Expiration Dates


    By popular demand, a comprehensive list of expired Obama statements...

    HEALTH CARE MANDATES

    STATEMENT: “We've got a philosophical difference, which we've debated repeatedly, and that is that Senator Clinton believes the only way to achieve universal health care is to force everybody to purchase it. And my belief is, the reason that people don't have it is not because they don't want it but because they can't afford it.” Barack Obama, speaking at a Democratic presidential debate, February 21, 2008.

    EXPIRATION DATE: On March 23, 2010, Obama signed the individual mandate into law.

    HEALTH CARE NEGOTIATIONS ON C-SPAN

    STATEMENT: “These negotiations will be on C-SPAN, and so the public will be part of the conversation and will see the decisions that are being made.” January 20, 2008, and seven other times.

    EXPIRATION DATE: Throughout the summer, fall, and winter of 2009 and 2010; when John McCain asked about it during the health care summit February 26, Obama dismissed the issue by declaring, “the campaign is over, John.”

    RAISING TAXES

    STATEMENT: “No family making less than $250,000 will see any form of tax increase.” (multiple times on the campaign trail)

    EXPIRATION DATE: Broken multiple times, including the raised taxes on tobacco, a new tax on indoor tanning salons, but most prominently on February 11, 2010: “President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.”

    RECESS APPOINTMENTS

    STATEMENT: Then-Senator Obama declared that a recess appointment is “damaged goods” and has “less credibility” than a normal appointment. August 25, 2005.

    EXPIRATION DATE: March 27, 2010: “If, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis.”

    BORDER SECURITY

    STATEMENT: “We need tougher border security, and a renewed focus on busting up gangs and traffickers crossing our border. . . . That begins at home, with comprehensive immigration reform. That means securing our border and passing tough employer enforcement laws.” then-candidate Obama, discussing the need for border security, speaking in Miami on May 23, 2008:

    EXPIRATION DATE: March 17, 2010: The Obama administration halted new work on a "virtual fence" on the U.S.-Mexican border, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced Tuesday, diverting $50 million in planned economic stimulus funds for the project to other purposes.

    GUANTANAMO BAY

    STATEMENT: Executive Order stating, "The detention facilities at Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, and no later than one year from the date of this order." January 22, 2009.

    EXPIRATION DATE: November 19, 2009: "Guantánamo, we had a specific deadline that was missed."

    MILITARY TRIBUNALS

    STATEMENT: “Somebody like Khalid Sheik Mohammad is gonna get basically, a full military trial with all the bells and whistles.” September 27, 2006

    EXPIRATION DATE: Ongoing. “President Obama is planning to insert himself into the debate about where to try the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, three administration officials said Thursday, signaling a recognition that the administration had mishandled the process and triggered a political backlash. Obama initially had asked Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to choose the site of the trial in an effort to maintain an independent Justice Department. But the White House has been taken aback by the intense criticism from political opponents and local officials of Holder's decision to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed in a civilian courtroom in New York.”

    RECOVERY.GOV

    STATEMENT: “We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government, and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov.” – President Obama, January 28, 2009

    EXPIRATION DATE: “More than two months after some of the funds were released, [Recovery.gov] offers little detail on where the money is going… The government [spent] $84 million on a website that doesn't have a search function, when its purpose is to ‘root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government.’” April 2, 2009

    Eighteen from his first 100 days:

    1. "As President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide."

    2. "I will make sure that we renegotiate [NAFTA]."

    3. Opposed a Colombian Free Trade Agreement because advocates ignore that "labor leaders have been targeted for assassination on a fairly consistent basis."

    4. "Now, what I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut."

    5. "If we see money being misspent, we're going to put a stop to it, and we will call it out and we will publicize it."

    6. "Yesterday, Jim, the head of Caterpillar, said that if Congress passes our plan, this company will be able to rehire some of the folks who were just laid off."

    7. "I want to go line by line through every item in the Federal budget and eliminate programs that don't work, and make sure that those that do work work better and cheaper."

    8. "[My plan] will not help speculators who took risky bets on a rising market and bought homes not to live in but to sell."

    9. "Instead of allowing lobbyists to slip big corporate tax breaks into bills during the dead of night, we will make sure every single tax break and earmark is available to every American online."

    10. "We can no longer accept a process that doles out earmarks based on a member of Congress's seniority, rather than the merit of the project."

    11. "If your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime."

    12. "Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe the United States has to be frank with the Chinese about such failings and will press them to respect human rights."

    13. "We must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights."

    14. "Lobbyists won’t work in my White House!"

    15. "The real gamble in this election is playing the same Washington game with the same Washington players and expecting a different result."

    16. "I'll make oil companies like Exxon pay a tax on their windfall profits, and we'll use the money to help families pay for their skyrocketing energy costs and other bills."

    17. "Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days." Obama is 1-for-11 on this promise so far.

    18. A special one on the 100th day, "the first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing I'd do."

    And a list from of promises that expired during the campaign:

    Monday, November 03, 2008

    IRAQ

    STATEMENT: “Based on the conversations we’ve had internally as well as external reports, we believe that you can get one to two brigades out a month. At that pace, the forces would be out in approximately 16 months from the time that we began. That would be the time frame that I would be setting up,” Obama to the New York Times, November 1, 2007

    EXPIRATION DATE: March 7, 2008: Obama foreign policy adviser Samantha Power, to the BBC: “You can’t make a commitment in whatever month we’re in now, in March of 2008 about what circumstances are gonna be like in Jan. 2009. We can’t even tell what Bush is up to in terms of troop pauses and so forth. He will of course not rely upon some plan that he’s crafted as a presidential candidate or as a US senator.”

    Also: July 3, 2008: "My 16-month timeline, if you examine everything I've said, was always premised on making sure our troops were safe," Obama told reporters as his campaign plane landed in North Dakota. "And my guiding approach continues to be that we've got to make sure that our troops are safe, and that Iraq is stable. And I'm going to continue to gather information to find out whether those conditions still hold."

    STATEMENT: On June 14, Obama foreign policy adviser Susan Rice called the RNC’s argument that Obama needed to go to Iraq to get a firsthand look "complete garbage."

    DEBATES

    IRAN

    STATEMENT: “We can, then, more effectively deal with what I consider to be one of the greatest threats to the United States, to Israel, and world peace, and that is Iran,” Obama speaking to American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Chicago, March 5, 2007

    EXPIRATION DATE: “Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny...They don’t pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us.” – May 20, 2008

    STATEMENT: Question at the YouTube debate, as the video depicted leaders of the countries, including Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: "Would you be willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea?....."

    "I would," Obama answered. July 27, 2007

    EXPIRATION DATE: May 10, 2008: Susan E. Rice, a former State Department and National Security Council official who is a foreign policy adviser to the Democratic candidate: “But nobody said he would initiate contacts at the presidential level; that requires due preparation and advance work.”

    JEREMIAH WRIGHT/TRINITY UNITED

    STATEMENT: "I could no more disown Jeremiah Wright than I could disown my own grandmother."

    —Barack Obama, March 18, 2008

    EXPIRATION DATE: On May 31, 2008, Obama resigned his membership at Trinity United Church.

    JIM JOHNSON

    STATEMENT: Criticism of running mate vetter Jim Johnson loan from Countrywide was "a game" and that his vice-presidential vetting team “aren’t folks who are working for me.” June 10, 2008

    EXPIRATION DATE: June 11, 2008, when Obama accepted Johnson's resignation.

    FISA

    STATEMENT: Obama spokesman Bill Burton on October 24, 2007: “To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.”

    EXPIRATION DATE: June 20, 2008: “Given the legitimate threats we face, providing effective intelligence collection tools with appropriate safeguards is too important to delay. So I support the compromise, but do so with a firm pledge that as president, I will carefully monitor the program.”

    NUCLEAR ENERGY

    STATEMENT: “I am not a nuclear energy proponent.” Barack Obama, December 30, 2007

    EXPIRATION DATE: The above statement actually was the expiration date for his previous position, “I actually think we should explore nuclear power as part of the energy mix,” expressed on July 23, 2007; the above statement expired when he told Democratic governors he thought it is “worth investigating its further development” on June 20, 2008.

    NAFTA

    STATEMENT: Tim Russert:: Senator Obama . . . Simple question: Will you, as president, say to Canada and Mexico, "This has not worked for us; we are out"?

    Obama: “I will make sure that we renegotiate, in the same way that Senator Clinton talked about. And I think actually Senator Clinton's answer on this one is right. I think we should use the hammer of a potential opt-out as leverage to ensure that we actually get labor and environmental standards that are enforced. And that is not what has been happening so far.” February 23, 2008

    EXPIRATION DATE: June 18, 2008, Fortune magazine: “Sometimes during campaigns the rhetoric gets overheated and amplified,” he conceded, after I reminded him that he had called NAFTA "devastating" and "a big mistake," despite nonpartisan studies concluding that the trade zone has had a mild, positive effect on the U.S. economy.

    Does that mean his rhetoric was overheated and amplified? "Politicians are always guilty of that, and I don't exempt myself," he answered.

    "I'm not a big believer in doing things unilaterally," Obama said. "I'm a big believer in opening up a dialogue and figuring out how we can make this work for all people."

    PUBLIC FINANCING

    STATEMENT: “If I am the Democratic nominee, I will aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election.” Also, a Common Cause questionnaire dated November 27, 2007, asked “If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?”, Obama checked, “Yes.”

    EXPIRATION DATE: June 19, 2008: Obama announced he would not participate in the presidential public financing system.

    WORKING OUT A DEAL ON PUBLIC FINANCING

    STATEMENT: “What I’ve said is, at the point where I'm the nominee, at the point where it's appropriate, I will sit down with John McCain and make sure that we have a system that works for everybody.”Obama to Tim Russert, Febuary 27.

    EXPIRATION DATE: When Obama announced his decision to break his public financing pledge June 19, no meeting between the Democratic nominee and McCain had occurred.

    EXPIRATION DATE: April 11, 2008: Asked if he would have vetoed the 1996 law, Mr. Obama said, “I won’t second guess President Clinton for signing” it. Obama to the New York Times.

    GAY MARRIAGE

    STATEMENT: "Barack Obama has always believed that same-sex couples should enjoy equal rights under the law, and he will continue to fight for civil unions as president. He respects the decision of the California Supreme Court, and continues to believe that states should make their own decisions when it comes to the issue of marriage.” – campaign spokesman, May 5, 2008

    EXPIRATION DATE: June 29, 2008: “I oppose the divisive and discriminatory efforts to amend the California Constitution, and similar efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution or those of other states… Finally, I want to congratulate all of you who have shown your love for each other by getting married these last few weeks.” — letter to the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club

    PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION

    STATEMENT: "Now, I don't think that 'mental distress' qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to the mother carrying that child to term." – Interview with Relevant magazine, July 1, 2008

    EXPIRATION DATE: July 5, 2008: “My only point is that in an area like partial-birth abortion having a mental, having a health exception can be defined rigorously. It can be defined through physical health, It can be defined by serious clinical mental-health diseases.” statement to reporters.

    DIVISION OF JERUSALEM

    STATEMENT: "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided." — speech before AIPAC, June 4, 2008

    EXPIRATION DATE: June 6, 2008: "Jerusalem is a final status issue, which means it has to be negotiated between the two parties" as part of "an agreement that they both can live with." – an Obama adviser clarifying his remarks to the Jerusalem Post.

    and your point is?? All politicians lie...what, you did not know that? You thought only Republicans tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? LMAO Get out from under your rock and admit that you do not like "hussein" because he is black. No harm in admitting that, it's a free country, you can hate whoever you like *rolls eyes*

    99, what placenta jar did you crawl out of?

    I have a nice new twenty dollar bill for you if you can find another president who has lied so much, and totally reversed his stated position on so many issues.

    This person is hell bent on destroying this country, and your children and grandchildren wil pay the bill for their whole lives.

    An agenda of fanning the Bush hate flames and an apathy of the people who pay the bills in this country resulted in the worst president ever.

    You sound like a closet Marxist to me. Any one who believes in the principles of liberty and free markets that this country was founded on and prospered on since its inception knows we have been sold down the river.

    " I have a nice new twenty dollar bill for you if you can find another president who has lied so much.."

    little Bush Jr.....yeah, where are those WMDs that he was so passionate about?? Leading us into battle to search for ghost WMDs. WTF!

    Oh, and he likes to direct his moronic bafoons to reveal identities of US intelligence agents whose spouses do not agree with his adminstration's stance on Iraq. Yeah that was real patriotic of him to do...

    Gee, at least "hussein" just broke some of his promises...little Bush went ahead and falsified intelligence and sent us into a losing battle with ghost WMDs. Then he builds Gitmo for his dog and pony show. Yeah that did a lot to deter the bad guys.

    Little Bush dorked $hit up for many generations to come.....stop reading Fox news and the Drudge Report and maybe you will come to terms of reality LMAO

    The lies that are listed are only some of the lies that have been told by the current Administration ... There are many, many more so the list goes on ... I Hope and Pray that those who voted for Obama and or support his agenda's hurt the worst and feel the pain the longest ... The man is a Treasonist Bastard who was a terrible Senator and even worst President ... We can only hope he does not complete the term he was elected to serve (serve-lol) ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    99, I hope your children and grandchildren enjoy paying off the huge debt your messiah is creating.

    I can see you are not capable of rational discourse, coming on this site pimping racism, hoping for a response so you can show us how brilliant you are.

    You have failed.

    Goodbye.

    Here's a little test for those who so quickly resort to playing the race card. First let me lay the groundwork:

    I propose to you that Barack Obama... a supposed scholar, despite little documented evidence of scholarship... a man who began running for president only a few months after his career in Congress began... a man who was elected President despite having zero executive leadership experience... would never have been nominated for President, much less elected, if he were white.

    Now your test:

    Are you open-minded and honest enough to consider this assertion without assuming that I am a racist for saying it? If no, then, by definition, aren't you a racist yourself? If yes, can you intelligently argue that I'm wrong? Please do so.

    Ask one of your hero's, mrs slick willie. She was one of the biggest proponents of the Iraq invasion, along with over 100 of your liberal pukes. Ask them, stupid.

    And wrote; "Oh, and he likes to direct his moronic bafoons to reveal identities of US intelligence agents whose spouses do not agree with his adminstration's stance on Iraq."

    stupid,,the whole world previously knew exactly what she, and he did, except maybe you,,stupid, and other dumb liberals.


    Also wrote; "little Bush went ahead and falsified intelligence and sent us into a losing battle with ghost WMDs."

    That is where you really show your stupidity. There isn't one shred of evidence, NONE, to back up another one of your stupid statements. Most of the world, his neighbors included, thought Saddam had WMD's. The same damn intelligence was read by all, LIBERALS and all. Read the 9/11 Commission report,,stupid.


    "Little Bush dorked $hit up for many generations to come"

    stupid,,,what George did is small potatoes compared to your hero's Barney Frank,,,and the no-account socialist community organizer that you call president, has dorked up. hussein wasn't man enough to vote yah or nay with over 100 pieces legislation as senator. Reminds me of you. stupid. His annual deficit is projected to be $1.5 trillion, with trillion dollar annual deficits for decades.


    How do you intend to pay for yours and hussein's stupidity?? How??
