Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

We’re stuck in a political moment when every fact is suspect, not to mention every “fact-checker.”



But it’s good that someone tries to pin down the promises of politicians, and keep score after the election is over, if only because it offers the opportunity to move from generalizations to specifics.



For what it’s worth, here’s Politifact’s scorecard: 239 promises kept; 130 promises compromised; 119 broken; 2 stalled; 18 in the works.  Click here to check on the promises near and dear to you.
