    Default Trump's campaign promises for his first 100 days

    Judge for yourself if he even remotely achieved those promises (yeah, it's only been 92 days... gonna be a busy week, right?):

    Tell me Norm , why did the Dems try and block his cabinet, obstruct him and never give him a honeymoon.

    Then turn around and complain he is not fast enough.

    Hypocritical.

    Because his choices for his cabinet are anti environment, Lie to congress and have been seen to line their own packets. And then, you have DeVo There's your answer bobbys! Devo's only contributions to education have been a few large donations to Trump's campaign. To heck with experience, none was needed, just a big checkbook. That can be applied to most members of the cabinet, not just DeVos.

    OK, destroying the Russian socialist Islamic dictatorship -- 200 days? 300?

    Trump now sez the first 100 days is a "ridiculous standard."

    Any one remember why the GOP was called "the Party of No"? Bobbys, anyone?

    We learned from the best: the GOP.

    Turnabout, as they say, is fair play. But to give credit where credit is due, the GOP has managed to shoot themselves in the foot. They have the votes to do what they want sans cross-overs from the minority party.

    I'm of the opinion that Trumps failures to deliver on promises so far is a good sign that the system is working.

    Having a non-politician in the Oval Office is certainly refreshing, if not a bit scary.

    The GOP/POS is all but dead. They just don't know it yet.

    They are split into at least three major factions that are so busy saying 'NO' to each other they can't even get their shoes tied.

    Ya know, those people are Morons. It's true. You could likely make a very strong statistical case that 21% of voters have been utterly imbecilic in every US Presidential election to date.

    The fools are the Democratic voters who stayed home, and ceded the field to those Morons.

    Only until you realize that what has stopped him, at least in the case of supposed 'health care reform', is a contingent in congress even MORE radical and destructive that Trump's own plan.

    If he ends up doing something truly destructive, I don't think 'refreshing' will be the word we'll all want to use.

    Well, he can at least complained that he HAS delivered to the American people.

    He's delivered corruption, ethics violations, nepotism, lack of transparency, and the initial attacks on the environment, social services, and a whole host of other things that affect ordinary people in this country. He's delivered all sorts of benefits for himself and the very wealthy, though.

    Yup, a 'productive' first 100 days.

    Only if the definition of 'rough crowd" is 'A crowd who desires to be ruled by career politicians.'

    I embrace the difference Trump brings to the White House, even when I don't embrace the direction at times.

    He made a point of signing something he marketed as a "Contract with the American People. ". All about his contracted deliverables in the first 100 days.

    Will be interesting to see how he handles contracts he wrote himself, as a voluntary commitment etc., eh?

    He'll just deny ever promising anything or blame someone else.

    “I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done,” Trump, 69, tells ITK. "I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off.”

    ABC’s Cecilia Vega appears to have been the first to notice. “Minutes after we asked the WH why the President’s campaign website still called for a Muslim ban, it appears the statement was deleted,” she tweeted.

    However, the WP has the Muslim Ban press release on this page..
