RNC Chairman Reince Priebus notes Obama can’t run on his record:
“President Obama has no record to run on so he’s out on the campaign trail resorting to the very tactics he once campaigned against. It’s sad to see the candidate of ‘Hope and Change’ become the president of ‘Hype and Blame.'”
For example, as mentioned in the “Hype and Blame” video:
On the campaign trail in 2008, Candidate Obama promised tightening the belt on fiscal spending: three years later, Obama has come up short on his promise to rein in federal spending. After he increased our national debt to more than $15 trillion President Obama has fallen “far short of his goal to halve the deficit in four years.”
Candidate Obama promised homeowners relief so they could “get back on their feet”: President Obama has failed to follow through on his housing promise. After more than three years Obama’s efforts to aid homeowners, boost housing market fall far short of goals.
Candidate Obama promised to rid the White House of lobbyist influence. PolitiFact rates Obama’s pledge his biggest broken promise.
Candidate Obama promised lower premiums by the end of his first term. Two years after the Democrats passed the unpopular ObamaCare in the dead of night, health insurance costs are rising as fast as ever.
In 2008 Obama may have campaigned on hope and change, but now it’s all hype and blame.
