Barack Obama thinks he has completed 60% of his promises

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – On Monday Barack Obama said that he had completed 60% of the commitments made during his successful campaign for the presidential election in the United States in 2008.

U.S. President toured three-day state of the American West in particular to raise money for his next campaign in 2012.

At a meeting, for which forty donors have each paid 35,800 dollars, Obama listed a number of accomplishments since joining the White House in January 2009. He said that they needed more time to complete the projects initiated by his administration.

“Many things we promised to do, we have made,” he said, citing in particular the reform of the health system or the end of the policy of discrimination against homosexuals in the military.

“I have compiled a little list and I think we made about 60% so far. And it’s not bad in three years, because I need five more.”

Barack Obama attended another fundraiser in the area of ​​Los Angeles, in the couple of actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas. Ticket prices for the approximately 200 participants began to $ 5,000.

In another similar meeting in Las Vegas, the Democratic president outlined the differences that separate Republicans willing to run against him.

“They have two basic economic principles: first, tax cuts for the very wealthiest and the biggest corporations…Second is just about every regulation that’s out there they want to get rid of — clean air, clean water — you name it.” he said.
