In tonight’s debate we’ll hear more of the same broken promises we heard in the debates four years ago and have been hearing ever since. Bill Clinton – who happens to be campaigning for Obama in New Hampshire today – rightly called these promises the “biggest fairy tale he’s ever seen” in the Granite State back in 2008. Please see the video and the Research briefing book for more.
In 2008, Bill Clinton Referred To Obama’s Campaign As “The Biggest Fairy Tale I’ve Ever Seen.” CLINTON: “It is wrong that Senator Obama got to go through 15 debates trumpeting his superior judgment and how he had been against the war in every year, enumerating the years, and never got asked one time, not once, well, how could you say that when you said in 2004 you didn’t know how you would have voted on the resolution, you said in 2004 there was no difference between you and George Bush on the war. And you took that speech you’re now running on off your website in 2004. And there’s no difference in your voting record and Hillary’s ever since. Give me a break. This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.” (Bill Clinton, Remarks, Hanover, NH 1/8/08)

RNC Releases: "Fairy Tale"
WASHINGTON - The Republican National Committee releases the web video "Fairy Tale" to remind voters of the empty debate promises then-candidate Obama made four years ago. From promising to create five million new green energy jobs to lowering healthcare costs, Candidate Obama promised the American people he would do a lot of things that he never delivered upon. After four years of failing to keep his promises, why should we expect anything different from President Obama tonight? The Middle Class can't afford another four years of Obama's Fairy Tale.

"President Obama will no doubt make new promises to the American people in tonight's debate, but how can we trust him after he broke the ones he made four years ago?" said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "When will President Obama take responsibility for running four trillion dollar deficits after promising to cut the deficit in half? How about promising to create five million new green jobs, while giving taxpayer money to Solyndra? On issue after issue and promise after promise, this president has not been able to keep his word. Bill Clinton was right--this president is the biggest fairy tale I've ever seen."
