It has been only a few days since President Obama started his new job, and just like any job the boss (in this case the American people) needs to have accountability from their new employee. This is where this site of the day comes in. It is called the Obameter and it tracks all of the campaign promises of Obama. I wonder what the Bushmeter looked like after 8 years. The Obameter was created by the site PolitiFact.
PolitiFact has compiled about 500 promises that Barack Obama made during the campaign and is tracking their progress on our Obameter. We rate their status as No Action, In the Works or Stalled. Once we find action is completed, we rate them Promise Kept, Compromise or Promise Broken.
By the initial look of it, Obama is off to a good start.
