    Media is making it into SUCH A BIG deal that there are mixed feelings among DEMs about Obama's cabinet picks and his stimulus plan etc.

    Of course everyone is different, and there are a wide spectrum of philosophy in both the Democratic and Republican Party, so it's natural that everyone will have different views and opinions.

    I've always had a realistic view of Obama, and I never expect that he will make everyone happy. So why is there such a high expectation that he has to constantly do everything right and make everyone happy at the same time?

    Who on earth would ever expect anything as complex as a Stimulus plan to be created perfectly with one go???

    Of course anything this big will go through revisions, and it's something that gets developed in detail within Congress, and  can not be passed without input and collaboration from both sides of the aisle.

    So I feel like why is the Media making a mountain out of a mole hill?

    It's as if Obama had to come up with an instant perfect plan, and have it instantly embraced by both Republicans and Democrats and passed quickly in Congress, anything that deviates from this scenario, and it's like "OMG Obama is failing... blah blah blah"
