You've heard of Shark Week, Fashion Week and Biker Week. We're declaring this Promise Week and publishing updates to the Obameter and the GOP Pledge-O-Meter.
We've posted several promises that we have either rated for the first time or have updated. So far, we've updated President Barack Obama's promises to create clean coal partnerships, to mandate insurance coverage of autism, to create a community college partnership program and to organize a successful nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review conference.
Meanwhile, on the GOP front, we've rated promises to keep detainees at Guantanamo Bay, to allow the purchase of health insurance across state lines and to increase access to domestic energy sources.
We want to hear your suggestions and comments.
For tips or comments on our Obameter and our GOP-Pledge-O-Meter promise databases, please e-mail the Obameter. If you are commenting on a specific promise, please include the wording of the promise.For comments about our Truth-O-Meter or Flip-O-Meter items, please e-mail the Truth-O-Meter. We’re especially interested in seeing any chain e-mails you receive that you would like us to check out. If you send us a comment, we'll assume you don't mind us publishing it unless you tell us otherwise.
