  •  "why" is unimportant. (5+ / 0-)

    ...that it was twelve days (omg!!1!!) is all that mattered.

    •  I'm sorry, obviously I am more forgiving than you (0+ / 0-)

      think I should be. I never expected the President (or any politician) to not disappoint me.  I never expected him to do everything I wanted--or even most of it. I certainly never expected him to get things absolutely right right off the bat. Obviously others aren't like me. I think if you are going to teach a politician to tie his shoes you have to accept that it's progress if he simply sits down in the same room with his shoes.  Very little has been done by fiat. Almost all progress has taken time and been incremental. Though this is not a diary about how the President shouldn't be re-elected (at least I think it isn't) if you want my view on whether we should support him the answer is yes.  And the reason is that change takes time. Lots of it.  Especially when our opponents are rich corporations. So being displeased after 12 days I totally get.  Giving up after 12 days--not so much.

        your original comment called to task (OMG!!1!!) criticism after 12 days.

        if you think criticism = abdication, you are grossly ill-informed. it took longer, much longer for some to reach that point and some still haven't reached it...but we and they remain critical when criticism is merited.

          The 12 day comment though actually was a "I'm through and totally over it" comment. I just wasn't clear about that. Criticism fine. Being done-- not fine.
