The Value of a Promise?

"New legislation will be posted for review on the internet."
"Well, maybe not."

"The most transparent administration in history."
"Well, maybe not."

"Close Gitmo!"
"Well, maybe not."

"A tax DECREASE for 95% of taxpayers."
"Well, maybe not."

"Out of Afghanistan in 2011."
(Already they're saying) "Well, maybe not."

"A UNITER, not a divider."
Up to this point, that's a sad, sad joke.

Many of us knew these promises would be broken and tried to warn others how ignorant they were to believe them.
Education sometimes comes with a difficult price-tag, doesn't it?

Update for those with ears that hear... eyes that actually see:
Gold- $1245.70
Silver- $19.66
