During a private fundraising event at the Los Angeles home of entertainment mogul Tyler Perry last week, President Barack Obama told the 250 donors in attendance: "When I ran in 2008, I in fact did not say I would fix it. I said we could fix it," adding, "I didn't say, 'Yes, I can.' I said, 'Yes, we can.'"

The Washington Free Beacon noticed a problem with Obama's claim and started reviewing some of the campaign promises made by then-candidate Obama.

In the Free Beacon's latest supercut, Obama is seen repeatedly making a promise to bring an end to the "ugly partisanship" in Washington. Obama claimed, "One of the things I've been able to do throughout my political career, is bring people together to get things done."

During the Democratic primary debates with Hillary Clinton, Obama also stated, "Part of the job of the next president is to break the gridlock — to get Democrats and independents and Republicans to start working together to solve these big problems."

Watch the contradictions, starting on the campaign trail and continuing all the way to Obama's first inaugural address:
