    Sparko - that just flat out isn't true. Every president has a mixture of "did that," "compromised on that" and "didn't do that." Your opinion of Trump is pretty badly skewed. It sounds like you've bought into his rhetoric. The list of his accomplishments against his promises is easily reviewed. Review it. I provided a link to one such list. There are many.

You can compare it with Obama's record, where his ratio of delivered-on promises is actually a bit higher than Trump's - however Trump has not finished his term and may raise his numbers before he does. I'm sure you can find similar "meters" for previous presidents.

    The primary difference is the gong-banging Trump regularly does, and the backup he gets from the White House media arm at Fox. With their record setting audiences, and Hannity & Co. repeating Trump's false claims night after night - well - Trump is right: repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth. At least, for those unwilling to dig in and find the facts.
    That was pretty lame, carp. Most of O's promises were fudged as "compromise" and the ones he did keep were silly useless crap stuck in there to further improve his score like:
    Support improved weather prediction program
    The Promise: Will work to launch "without further delay" the Global Precipitation Measurement mission, "an international effort to improve climate, weather, and hydrological predictions through more accurate and more frequent precipitation measurements."

    I am absolutely stunned that you would reject something position about Obama and put forward such a glowing endorsement of Trump.

    I leave to you, Sparko. The facts are there. Or you can persist in your bubble...
