Re: Obama promised no earmarks, mad props to him
The Republicans lied about their promises to keep spending under control when they controlled the government. The Democrats have broken promise after promise since they have controlled Congress in 06. Part of the reason that this Congress had the lowest approval ratings in US history, much lower than even Bush's approval rating if that's believable. I see Obama is at least attempting to becoming centrist. Hopefully he will keep most of his promises to mainstream America and look out for all of us, not just his special interest groups. Republicans, Independents and Democrats of America need him to be an impartial, honest president right now, not just another politician. I am not holding my breath though.
