Promises Broken

The LA Times:

A year ago, before attaining front-runner status, Obama signed a pledge to the group Common Cause in which he vowed to push for "full public funding for qualified candidates who agree to spending limits and to stop accepting private contributions."

"I will make passage of such legislation one of the priorities in my campaign and in my presidency if elected," Obama told the group. But he decided to forgo public financing once he realized that he could amass far more through Internet donations than McCain.

This was Obama's first broken promise for his own gain. Since it was so easy for him to break this promise, how easy will it be to break other promises? Like not raising taxes on most Americans, or not infringing on our 2nd Amendment rights?

Pretty easy I imagine.
