"President-elect Barack Obama said reviving the U.S. economy will require scaling back on his campaign promises and personal sacrifice from all Americans."
“I want to be realistic here, not everything that we talked about during the campaign are we going to be able to do on the pace we had hoped,” Obama said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” program broadcast this morning. “Everybody’s going to have to give.”
Now that Obama has apparently delayed his above 0,000 tax increase, how the super rich are going to give is anyone's guess.
He didn't stop with his promises on the economy:
"Among the campaign promises that may be delayed is his vow to quickly close the prison camp at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
“It is more difficult than I think a lot of people realize,” Obama said, adding that he still plans to shut down the facility, used to detain enemy combatants suspected of being terrorists."
