Obama's empty promises

I am so tired of hearing Obama promise to give money for this and start a fund for that. He's not the only one, but he seems to be the worst one. Where does he suppose he's going to get this money? Possibly he's found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but I'm guessing he's all words with no possibility of action in the future should he actually take the Presidency.

We have a huge federal deficit. We have problems with Social Security and tons of other things that need fixed. Right now Obama has a Global Poverty bill(S. 2433) out being fast-tracked through the process that could cost the US billions and billions of dollars.

Where is all this "magic" money supposed to come from? What makes Obama think the Congress is going to let some wet-behind-the-ears upstart do whatever he wants just because he's President? That's why there is separation of powers, and if Obama thinks his charisma will work on Congress, he is much mistaken.

We're all familiar with campaign promises and if we're smart we understand promises seldom are kept. If we add up all the promises and cash promises of Obama, we come up with a candidate that is all talk with little hope of action in the future.

One of us is dumb. Either he is dumb enough to believe his own hype, or I'm too dumb to see how he can pull it off. This guy has no business running for President at this time in his career, but evidently America doesn't care. Many seem to want to get in on the "feel-good" hype and overblown promises of a charismatic character with questionable religious and patriotic background.

We need to look below the charisma to the real man to see what he really is. For some reason, we're not getting a clear picture from the press, so it behooves us, as voters who care about our country to do our research, not just on Obama, but on ALL the candidates. Look below the promises to the reality as you prepare to cast your vote.
