Promises

Obama has made a lot of promises. One of his promises was that he would go through bills line by line. The idea was that he would remove or veto earmarks. He didn’t deliver on that promise. Now he makes a similar promise in his State of the Union address. This time he said he would veto earmarks. People who do not keep their promises, are phony.

Harry Reid has said that Obama should back off his “veto earmarks” remark. We’ll be watching to see how many earmarks Obama vetoes.

Income redistribution

Obama has not rejected income redistribution. He reaffirmed his goal of taxing the rich. He agreed to the compromise of not taxing the rich. Now he wants to renege on his promise.

Obama showed his true colors in Kenya, when he supported Odinga. He supported an unsavory politician, and we have pictures of him doing it.

NASA

From Obama's speech:

    “Half a century ago, when the Soviets beat us into space with the launch of a satellite called Sputnik, we had no idea how we would beat them to the moon. The science wasn't even there yet. NASA didn't exist. But after investing in better research and education, we didn't just surpass the Soviets; we unleashed a wave of innovation that created new industries and millions of new jobs.”

So, what has Obama done to NASA?

Construction

From Obama’s speech:

    “So over the last two years, we've begun rebuilding for the 21st century, a project that has meant thousands of good jobs for the hard-hit construction industry. And tonight, I'm proposing that we redouble those efforts.”

Obama supported ACORN  for over a decade. ACORN supported risky mortgages. The housing industry was destroyed. Obama was involved in it’s destruction.

Constitution

From the speech:

    "We may have differences in policy, but we all believe in the rights enshrined in our Constitution."

These are only words. Watch how Obama acts. Did Obama take a swipe at the Supreme Court in the last address to Congress?

Conclusion

I have covered only a few things here. Obama's words do not match his actions.
