RNC: We’ve Gone From ‘Hope & Change’ to ‘Hype & Blame’


The RNC goes back to the footage of Obama on the campaign trail in 2008 and just tears apart his record:

“We need a president who will change this economy so that it finally works for your family.”

“The real question is will this country be better off, four years from now?”

“If you have health insurance, the only thing that will change under my plan is that we will lower your premiums.”

“As president, I will go through the federal budget, line by line, ending programs that we don’t need.”

It would be fun if the next time Obama tries to go over the head of the White House press corps by doing a sit-down interview with some local television reporter from a swing-state city, they brought up these pledges and asked the president why his results are so different from what he promised.
