Inside the Meter

Deleting duplication on the Obameter

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.
