OBAMETER

I found this site recently, and it's worth looking at or even bookmarking. It's pretty in depth into President Obama's campaign promises and sorting truth from fiction.

PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times to help find the truth in politics. Every day, reporters and researchers from the Times examine statements by members of Congress, the president, cabinet secretaries, lobbyists, people who testify before Congress and anyone else who speaks up in Washington. They research their statements and then rate the accuracy on their Truth-O-Meter – True, Mostly True, Half True, Barely True and False. The most ridiculous falsehoods get their lowest rating, Pants on Fire.

They also rate the consistency of public officials on their Flip-O-Meter using three ratings: No Flip, Half Flip and Full Flop.


Find them on the web at http://www.politifact.com/

If you take Obama's voting for Telco Immunity as an indication that he would eventually support Bu$hCo's, "Wiretap any American anytime we want policy," then the new administration's attempt to quash the federal suit testing it's constitutionality is not really a "promise broken"

But it's still a bitter pill swallow, and to my mind does count as a promise broken, re: Obama's pledge to filibuster telco immunity.
