Posted on 02/12/2013 8:52:17 AM PST by ExxonPatrolUs
Tonight, the American people will be watching President Obamas fifth State of the Union address. How has he done on his promises over the past four years?
Take a look at some of the promises Obama made back in 2009 during his first State of the Union.
I pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office.

But at this point, who's counting...
Many Americans will not be watching because, like me, they are disgusted by the the Bullsh1t that pours out of this pathological liars mouth.
Uh, not THIS American person, nor anyone else in my household. Haven't watched ANY of this serial liar's SOTU speeches, and never will.
Anyone who watches mac daddy give his totally worthless SOTU speech is as stupid as they come.
One lie after another.
"By now all of you know that Congress will not challenge my executive orders, so I have issued a new one that states this is how the country will be run. As of this moment Congress is disbanded, as is the Supreme Court. Do not worry about the troops I have ordered deployed on every street corner. They are there to ensure peace during this transition period."
Are you kidding?
Obama sycophants wouldn’t be caught dead with such a small screen.
52” LED or bigger. Only those of us that work for a living have 19” screens.
I’m hoping there will be audible laughter to the point that the MSM will not be able to ignore it.
Dr. Ben Carson gave the real state of the union speech the other day.
The wife and I will be watching the Wesminster Dog Show. Can’t stomach watching ole jug ears drone on and on promoting only himself.
Union boss gives pep rally.Yawn good time to read a book.
John Jay, President of the Continental Congress, later signer of the Constitution and Supreme Court Chief Justice, when he was yet President of the Continental Congress set such an example. Those of Washington and Lincoln may be read online.
Given our problems today, perhaps a SOTU Address might incorporate some of that humility and appeal to the "Supreme Judge of the World" (Declaration of Independence)..
From this web site, comes the following:
"As with his predecessors Jay was no stranger to prayer. One of John Jay's acts as President was issuing a Proclamation call for a Day of Fasting Humiliation and Prayer:
"Whereas, in just punishment of our manifold transgressions, it hath pleased the Supreme Disposer of all events to visit these United States with a destructive calamitous war, through which His divine Providence hath, hitherto, in a wonderful manner, conducted us, so that we might acknowledge that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong: and whereas, there is but too much Reason to fear that notwithstanding the chastisements received and benefits bestowed, too few have been sufficiently awakened to a sense of their guilt, or warmed our Bosoms with gratitude, or taught to amend their lives and turn from their sins, that so He might turn from His wrath. And whereas, from a consciousness of what we have merited at His hands, and an apprehension that the malevolence of our disappointed enemies, like the incredulity of Pharaoh, may be used as the scourge of Omnipotence to vindicate his slighted Majesty, there is reason to fear that he may permit much of our land to become the prey of the spoiler, and the Blood of the innocent be poured out that our borders to be ravaged, and our habitations destroyed:
"Resolved, That it be recommended to the several states to appoint the first Thursday in May next, to be a day of fasting, Thanksgiving humiliation and prayer to Almighty God, that he will be pleased to avert those impending calamities which we have but too well deserved: that he will grant us his grace to repent of our sins, and amend our lives, according to his holy word: that he will continue that wonderful protection which hath led us through the paths of danger and distress: that he will be a husband to the widow and a father to the fatherless children, who weep over the barbarities of a savage enemy: that he will grant us patience in suffering, and fortitude in adversity: that he will inspire us with humility and moderation, and gratitude in prosperous circumstances: that he will give wisdom to our councils, firmness to our resolutions, and victory to our arms That he will have Mercy on our Foes, and graciously forgive them, and turn their Hearts from Enmity to Love.
"That he will bless the labours of the husbandman, and pour forth abundance, so that we may enjoy the fruits of the earth in due season. That he will cause union, harmony, and mutual confidence to prevail throughout these states: that he will bestow on our great ally all those blessings which may enable him to be gloriously instrumental in protecting the rights of mankind, and promoting the happiness of his subjects and advancing the Peace and Liberty of Nations. That he will give to both Parties to this Alliance, Grace to perform with Honor and Fidelity their National Engagements].1 That he will bountifully continue his paternal care to the commander in chief, and the officers and soldiers of the United States: that he will grant the blessings of peace to all contending nations, freedom to those who are in bondage, and comfort to the afflicted: that he will diffuse useful knowledge, extend the influence of true religion, and give us that peace of mind, which the world cannot give: that he will be our shield in the day of battle, our comforter in the hour of death, and our kind parent and merciful judge through time and through eternity.
"Done in Congress, this 20th day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventy-nine, and in the third year of our independence."
John Jay, President.
Attest, Charles Thomson, Secretary."
