James K. Polk set four campaign promises and accomplished all of them.

  1. Settle the northern border with Britain
  2. Settle the southern border with Mexico
  3. Balance the budget
  4. Do it all in one term

He got in, expanded the Union, and got out. He's one of America's greatest heroes. The ONLY thing he did wrong was not shred the Treaty of Guadeloupe-Hidalgo when the COCKSUCKING LEFTIST TRAITOR, Nicolas Trist, negotiated for less land than he and Congress had approved.

Don't forget about ole hickory. Three promises. Kill the central banks, get rid of the Indians, and expand our land mass. He did this all in one term. When people asked him to run again; he said no. Went and fucked off for the rest of his years (days) saying he accomplished all he set out for.
