Obama Promise-Breaking In Progress: Exports Aren’t Doubling February 12, 2013

Posted by geoff in News.

I’ve been keeping track of President Obama’s 2010 SoTU promise to double exports by 2015; a promise that was a linchpin of his plan to restore the economy. At the time, pundits scratched their heads and asked, “how the heck is he going to do that?”

Well, the short answer is: he ain’t.


Why did he make a promise that he had no ability to keep? My guess is that he had no idea of what he was promising and that he wouldn’t have cared if he did.
