I think the bar of expectation has been set awfully low. It's really quite sad.
I hear some variation of this argument all the time "Yes, Obama screwed up X, but he's still better than the previous administration".
Seriously, that is the criteria now ? So, does that mean that if I kick you in the shin, that's OK because it's not as bad as if I were to kick you in the head ? That is where the bar is set now ? People are beyond the point of expecting/demanding to not be kicked anywhere ? Holy crap that is incredibly sad.
