In Honor of Obama’s LAST State of the Union Speech – Here’s 140 Broken Promises from all of His SOTU Speeches

In honor of President Obama’s FINAL State of the Union speech, the fine folks at MRC.orghave happily collected 140 different broken promises from the President’s 8 different SOTU speeches. It’s an amazing compilation that proves the inadequacy of Obama as a politician and the failure of Obama as a president.

thank god that I missed all of his lies...never watched a one.

Unfortunately, the lies did NOT miss YOU!  The fact you didn't bother to even watch one makes you an uninformed citizen.  If you didn't watch, you didn't do anything against them, either.  Now, you, in spite of yourself, are subject to the same misery as everyone else.  Sleep well.

What did you do Mr. Masterson?  How do you fight a ridiculous lie when our elected Officials do nothing?  We know that petitions, surveys, polls and letters to our Representatives do nothing.  I miss the large Tea Party rallies we saw in the past. At least they got some media coverage.  I consider myself "informed" and I'm active in the Republican Party, but nothing I've tried individually has changed the course of events. What do you suggest we do when the "majority" tells a Democratic Congressman how we feel and they still vote with Obama? I'd certainly appreciate your suggestions. 

Its a book of lies. obama legacy will be marked as a bag of lies and golf. 

....certainly a mixed bag of something (more like excrement), for sure.

And to think that Hillary wants the People to trust her to carry-on and to expand his legacy!

OH LET ME GUESS B/C HE PLANNED ALL OF THEM THEN SAYS IT HAS TO END AND HE

KNOWS HOW LIKE AUSTRALIA CONFISCATE THEM ALL BUT HIS; HILLARYS AND FMR MAYOR BLOOMBERG ALL COCOONED IN ARMED GUARDS

Where is the US Congress?????????????????????????

Obama's legacy of lies belongs to, and is the fault of, every RINO in the Gutless Old Party, every appeasement-driven white voter, every naive, no-savvy, low-info moron that didn't know or care about truth, facts, or consequences of their comotose trip to the fraudulent-riddled polls. The most destructive enemy of our America, King Obama, was put here by all the above...they put the criminal in place, now this nation will continue to pay, and pay....for longer than any of us have. Economic damage can someday be repaired, social and moral structural damage will probably never be repaired. The health of any country, state, or city is only as good as the majority of it's populous....ours showed it's colors on November 4th, 2008, reaffirmed it on November 6th, 2012. We have an opportunity to at least stop the bleeding in November, get started on the climb out of the sewer...will it happen?

I believe that Obama only won because of fraud at the ballot box.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
