Obama’s promises weren’t too numerous to count

Memo to politicians: Assume that somebody is counting your promises with an eye toward holding you accountable for them later. It turns out that Barack Obama made a whopping 510 promises while running for president, according to PolitiFact.com, compared with Bill Clinton’s 204 in 1992 and George W. Bush’s 177 in 2000. Obama’s were as big as getting out of Iraq and as small as getting his daughters a dog.
