I don't know of any President that does that, they are just trying to get re-elected and if they get something done that's good for us Americans...

It's not a rule, but President Obama did say he would cut the budget within his first term and that hasn't happened.  It'll be up to the voters to decide whether to give him more time or not.

You give any government employee 4 years to do something, around year 3 they'll ask for 6 and a bigger budget.  =-P

There's no rule or blame when you aren't able to accomplish everything you hope to accomplish, you tried your best.  When you promise a lot of things that you think you might not be able to accomplish in order to get elected, that's simple deception and lack of integrity.  Many politicians do that routinely, and our present president has done that in exactly the same way.

As you get older, you'll learn to pay as much attention to what people do as what they say :)  Let's hope you do, anyway!

This is how I see it. The President has been a failure on the Economy, with unemployment so high, why would I vote for him. His main goal is redistribution, at all cost. He is bent on turning America into a welfare State, despising success. So lets just give the other guy a chance, anybody!!!!

I agree, there isn't anyone good running for President.  They all say the same things when they want to get elected. But once they get in there, they find out that they can't do anythng they want, cause
Congress won't let them.  I think we would get more done if we didn't have Democrats OR Republicians.  Let someone else try it for awhile...  Can't be any worse than it is right now...
