He'd campaigned with the promise to evict the Marine base at Camp Futenma on Okinawa. (I was actually there once.) Instead, it was negotiated that the Marines remain on Okinawa but be relocated. Having "lost face" for failing to live up to a campaign promise, the Japanese PM resigned. Too bad America's President doesn't display even 10% of that same humility and honor. How many campaign promises has Obama broken? About 35*, last I heard. * IOW, he's broken EVERY campaign promise except the one to "fundamentally transform America"... yeah, into a FULL COMMIE STATE!
