Every time I read that the president has made another promise I’m reminded of the poem written by Robert William Service, “The Cremation of Sam McGee” in which he laments, “Now a promise made is a debt unpaid, and the trail has its own stern code”.

What Service was referencing is that a ‘promise” is a pretty important thing, however I suspect that with the president’s history of breaking one promise after another, that he didn’t get around to reading this particular poem, “to bad it may have served him well”.

And since 2008 up to and including his much publicized deal with Iran, Obama has “promised” at least 28-times that he would prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. However in a recent interview with NPR News, the president admitted that Iran could have a nuclear weapon after 13-years with a much faster breakout time.

He went on to say, “Essentially, we’re purchasing for 13, 14, 15 years assurances that the breakout is at least a year… and then in years 13 and 14, it is possible that those breakout times would have been much shorter. But at that point we have much better ideas about what it is that their program involves.”

However when it comes to being truthful and making promises this president has a less than positive track record, in that we all recall his promise “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor…period.”

Obviously with the threat of a terrorist state acquiring a nuclear arsenal in a little over a dozen years, the Prime Minister of Israel, has every reason to feel that America has abandoned him, and the recent dust-up is a good indication of how this administration feels towards the State of Israel. However my sense is that the Prime Minister will not allow Iran to fulfill its promise to destroy the State of Israel, or Obama’s attempt to play politics with its survival, and with yet another empty promise.
