9. So because these other presidents disappointed us
we should find disappointment acceptable in Obama?

This time there are some significant issues at stake. One is collective bargaining rights for teachers and another is in preserving the New Deal. Without these two the Democrats are nothing more than Republicans with a conscience. So this time, betrayal in unacceptable, completely unacceptable. Obama had better make his positions clear to his supporters and he had better do that immediately.
