THE ONLY PLEDGE HE MADE THAT ISN'T PARENTHETICAL AT THIS POINT WAS TO BUY A DOG:

Obama, Who Vowed Rapid Action on Climate Change, Turns More Cautious (JOHN M. BRODER, 4/11/09, NY Times)

President Obama came to office promising swift and comprehensive action to combat global climate change, and the topic remains a surefire applause line in his speeches here and abroad.

Yet the administration has taken a cautious and rather passive role on the issue, proclaiming broad goals while remaining aloof from details of climate legislation now in Congress.


After 8 years of activism it's perfectly understandable that the American electorate might have wanted 4 years of passivity. The problem for the Democrats is that a GOP Congress is the best guarantee.
