For almost two terms in office the President has been promising change… and hope… and stuff.
But it won’t happen overnight. In fact it hasn’t happened overnight for 7 years now.
The Washington Free Beacon put together a hilarious video that documents a selection of the many times Obama has put forth policy proposals and promises, only to add the caveat that it aint gonna happen any time soon.
There are, of course, other terms for this – ‘abject failure’, or ‘false promises’.
On everything from the economy to immigration, from education to the environment, from gun control to police brutality nothing has happened overnight for Obama… or AT ALL.
It’s a saying that Obama has employed continuously, even from BEFORE he was President.
After his 2008 win in the Wisconsin primary, Obama told gathered crowds of supporters that “As wonderful as this gathering is, as exciting as these enormous crowds and this enormous energy may be, what we’re trying to do here is not easy, and it will not happen overnight.”
2 years into office, Obama said during an immigration speech “While this work isn’t easy, and the changes we seek won’t always happen overnight, what we’ve made clear is that this administration will not just kick the can down the road.”
Welcome to down the road Obama, oh look, there’s that can you were talking about.
Not getting things done, making empty promises without following through, that’s not who we are…
