Make Good on Campaign Promises

President Obama, it's your first one hundred days -- now is the time to rise to stardom. Now is the time to make good on your campaign promises of helping the factory worker make ends meet and not line the pockets of the corporate lobbyists and CEOs that are responsible for crippling our economy. To make higher education accessible to every child regardless of their wealth and to finally make our public schools work for poor inner city kids and not just kids in the wealthy suburbs. To finally make us not rely on Al Qeida to get to work. ( Since the oil that's currently powering our cars comes from countries that harbor terrorists ) Yes, the time is good to be an American. All that's left to be seen is whether or not you're going to follow through with your agenda or just be your typical politician that offers anything just for a vote.
