Promises, Promises

Not to bad for under two years and even with the party of "Hell No!".

Checking up on Obama's campaign promises

June 25th, 2010 We've been busy fact-checking statements about the oil spill, the 2010 elections, and the national debt, but we've also been updating our massive database of President Barack Obama's campaign promises and rating them for completion.

Obama made more than 500 campaign promises during the campaign. We've categorized them according to subject, including health care, taxes , foreign policy, and the economy. We've also selected 25 of Obama's most important promises and categorized them as PolitiFact's Top Promises.

We also keep a count on the rating of the promises. The latest breakdown:

• 117 Promise Kept
• 19 Promise Broken
• 36 Compromise
• 81 Stalled
• 249 In the Works

Finally, here's a summary of some of our most recent updates and new ratings. Click through to the full reports for more details and a complete list of sources, with hyperlinks. Continued

But we've still got two long occupations with a third front that are creating hatreds thus the potential longer term blowback! And so much more to clean up let alone move forward!
