Perhaps his next move will be to back off from this pledge:
Abe Greenwald at Contentions reports that Obama made this statement in a youtube video that was "made last year for the pacifist organization Caucus4Priorities.org, whose mission is 'To redirect 15% of the Pentagon's discretionary budget away from obsolete Cold War weapons towards education, healthcare, job training, alternative energy development, world hunger, deficit reduction.'"
Obama might have a difficult time throwing these pacifists under the bus because he says in the video: "You know where I stand. I fought for open ethical and accountable government my entire public life. I don't switch positions or make promises that can't be kept."
