  •  Many of them were Obama Supporters, but (3+ / 0-)

    from reading their diaries and comments, many of them had him on a mile high pedestal; he could not possibly meet their exceptionally high hopes and ideals so the first time his actions did not meet what they expected either the timing or the results, he tumbled and in their eyes, has been tumbling ever since.    

    •  Yeah, I've said that too (4+ / 0-)

      I've likened it the 'scorned lover' syndrome.  It's tough to govern when the loyal opposition is loyally insane. I really think that Obama is trying to get back to basic governing and that makes for actions that just aren't going to be popular with everyone on both sides of the aisle.  We have gotten too used to governing by bully pulpit.

      That's not how governing works and I think that history will reflect on this period in this way.
