Promises I Can't Believe In

"Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me." ~proverb

Obama Vows to Reverse 'Epidemic' of U.S. Job Losses by reports on President Obama's promises for addressing the economic challenges of the middle class. Of course, I haven't forgotten candidate Obama's promises of a changing government for the better by eliminating partisanship, earmarks and favoritism for special interests. Instead, President Obama gave us hyperpartisanship, a stimulus package and health care bill full of earmarks, and more catering to special interests.

Mr. Obama must think I have a short memory :-)

Unfortunately I think many people do have a short and selective memory in this country. That is almost unbelievable considering that everything a politician says is recorded in places like youtube.

However, his popularity is like the stock market. It seems like peoples' opinions change on a day-to-day basis based on seemingly trivial news (there's the short memory). However, that does form an overall trend (there's the long memory).
