I love the PolitiFact Web site, which takes a fun and graphically innovative approach to political reporting. During the campaign and afterwards, they brought out the “Truth-O-Meter,” which fact checks various politicans’ claims for accuracy.
Now they are taking on Barack Obama’s long, long list of promises. They counted up all the promises he made during the campaign – more than 500. Now, they will track which ones he keeps and which ones he breaks. So far, he’s kept only two, stalled on one, made progress on another 12 and taken no action on 495. But hey, let’s at least give him a week.
