Here's a famous campaign promise made back in 1928:

"A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage" – Herbert Hoover

Apparently that was a promise everyone wanted fulfilled back then for Hoover was elected president.

Times have changed. How different these promises were in comparison to the most recent campaign to elect a president.

If Hoover were alive today he'd likely promise two chicks in every bed and a four car garage for everyone.

How to make right all of the wrongs. I heard a lot of this during this campaign. I didn't hear a lot of concrete resolution to all those things needing fixing.

Taxes were tossed around quite a bit and both Obama and McLame promised the middle class not to worry about any increases. It's stupid not to promise no new taxes for everyone when the national debt keeps rising. War in the middle east. Health care. Economic bailout. Etc. All without any tax increase? Come on guys. Get real.

Finger pointing. There was a lot of that. Many pointed fingers were cast in many different directions towards many people. "Not me. I didn't do it. It was that other guy."

Are promises made by politicians ever kept?

The next four years will be no doubt very interesting. It's gonna take a Super Hero to dig us out of the mess that we're in.

I wanted McCain in because Palin would have been in the picture. I think we need another sex scandal in the White House.....

I checked the election returns for Shasta Country, and concluded that 2 out of every 3 people there are idiots. It's just like what Obama said about country folk...

I just hope Obama can fix what Bush screwed up.
