28. Did Obama think he was going to be a dictator when he made the promise?

I've made my reasoning clear repeatedly, but here it is again:

My complaint is not "Obama did not deliver" but "Obama promised". I am annoyed not at his performance, but at his dishonesty.

There may well be perfectly valid excuses for not having delivered, and if so blaming him for that is, as you say, unreasonable. But Obama knew that that might well be the case when he promised, and therefore he shouldn't have promised - and, crucially, since he has a track record of making promises knowing that he may not be able to keep them, we should not trust his promises in future.

Now do you understand?
