The truth is most of us will not agree with everything, or sometimes anything, a political representative does. We may well believe we have better ideas; and often, sitting back and analyzing, we do. Often political leaders, who need to take the whole of their constituency, the whole of the nation into their accounting in making decisions, decide in ways not specifically suited to each individual, or even large groups. Thus, we often have serious issues with how things are being done, being run, in our name.
President Barack Obama has done perhaps not an excellent job in all respects; but he has done a credible job, a generally good job, has shown insight and intelligence, calm deliberation, interest in the needs of all the people. He has worked smart and hard and with a reasonable amount of integrity through very difficult times and highly disruptive opposition. Sadly, most of us have not been doing that level of work on our own difficulties, seeming to prefer nasty attitudes and whining complaint.
