Obama's first year in office: Politifact promise scorecard


WASHINGTON--President Obama marks his first year in office on Jan. 22. Politifact, the non-partisan fact check operation, keeps a scorecard of Obama's promises--and found most a work in progress in their latest analysis, released on Tuesday. Check out the Politifact widget on my blog.

The Obameter Scorecard

Promise Kept 91
Compromise 31
Promise Broken 12
Stalled 71
In the Works 256
Not yet rated 45


Any background on their methodology in arriving at these results and actual verification of the promises? I don't recall him making almost 500 promises during his campaign. I smell a liberal fish here.

He's a loser.
