GWB's Broken Promises - Why aren't we making him eat them?
The more I watch these old campaign 2000 clips, the more I get angry that we let him characterize Democrats as flip-floppers in the last election. We should be forcing him to eat his own words, and reminding Americans everyday that his administration could easily win an award for most retracted promises. Interestingly, this was a hint of campaign strategy to come, there's no shortage of scare tactics in this clip:

There are about 20-30 clips archived ads from the election, here's the link to the list for anyone keen on raising their blood temperature.

1. Hell, go back and check out the GOP "Contract with America"
They've had plenty of time to live up to those promises, and strangely enough, they haven't kept ANY of them that I see. (Of course, shredding the Constitution wasn't listed.)

If the Democrats and American people started holding the GOP to its past promises, it would soon be clear they are liars, saying what they need to say to get elected.

And when that fails, they just steal the election anyway. F America.
