From Obama 2012: "Four years ago today, President Obama laid out 4 key promises to Americans; promises that have been kept.

"From ending the war in Iraq to making healthcare affordable for all Americans, providing a middle class tax cut and reducing our dependence on foreign oil, these are the changes that Iowans sought for our nation in 2008.

"During that unlikely victory speech to a room of Iowans, the President offered solutions to these decades-long challenges, and under historically difficult circumstances, he delivered."
