Campaign Promises Update 2

About a month ago I wrote about President Obama's campaign promises. At that time he was doing fairly well.

Apparently that has changed more than the Obameter shows, because of earmarks and signing statements, taxing health benefits, and stem cell decisions, terrorist detainment, and different treatment of auto workers and AIG executives.

UPDATE: In early April, a tobacco tax broke what was probably Obama's most significant promise about no new taxes facing those earning less than $200,000.

UPDATE: Another broken promise, about wiretapping.

UPDATE: Two more in April, about economics.
