How do you trust a guy?

A former student wrote this; and I must agree...
Politifact's "Obameter" has been keeping track of the more than 500 promises the president made during the 2008 campaign and found thus far he's kept 37% of them. He's broken 16%, compromised on 14% and is still working on another 22%.
Politifact's GOP Pledge-O-Meter follows promises made in 2010 by Republican leaders and in their Pledge to America, and found the GOP has only kept 19% of its promises. They've broken 19%, compromised on 7% and are still working on 19%.
If you can't trust a guy who has only kept 37% of his promises, how do you trust leaders that have only kept 19% of theirs while having control of Congress? Who are unwilling to compromise?
Better yet, how do you trust a guy, who as governor of Massachusetts, signed an assault weapon ban in 2004, reiterated his support for a ban in 2007 and then shows up at an NRA convention in 2012? Someone who wants you to trust him with your taxes but won't release his returns; in his book "No Apology," he expressed pride in Romneycare and believed that "we can accomplish the same thing for everyone in the country."
I don't think you can.
