Vote on performance, not promises

Hat tip to Daring Fireball:

Krugman wrote yesterday: “This administration, elected on the promise of change, has already managed, in an astonishingly short time, to create the impression that it’s owned by the wheeler-dealers.”

Come on, guys. That shouldn’t be a surprise. Anyone paying attention knew Obama was one of the top Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac beneficiaries. Anyone paying attention knew that the Obama campaign deliberately enabled fraudulent donations. He’s also one of the top AIG beneficiaries. When he said he was going to spread the wealth around, what did you expect? That he was going to spread it to you?

Don’t vote on promises; vote on record and performance. There are no surprises here.

  1. <- Market rises
  2. AIG healthcare ->
