Deleting duplication on the Obameter

Posted by Bill Adair :: Published on Thursday, December 20th, 2012 at 02:18 p.m.

As we continue wrapping up our work on the 2008 Obameter promises, we found a duplication.

President Barack Obama’s promise to "restore 24-month limit on cumulative Guard and Reserve deployment time" is contained within another of his promises: to "limit Guard and Reserve deployments to one year for every six years."

We’re deleting the first promise on guard deployments; our reporting in the second one addresses the issue of cumulative limits on deployments.
