The President is hypocritical when he confronts situations like this. In calmer places he tells us, Push me, make me do my job. From the beginning hes said that, hes said it over and over again. Then when people do that, he gets irritated, tells them, Ive done lots of things, now shut up and go away! Im talking here! Everyone supports the STFU, saying, Why dont they wait until AFTER the election?

The President missed an opportunity and we all should be upset about that. Instead of telling the protesters to basically go jump in a lake, he should told thanked them and told them they were right. We havent done enough. We arent doing enough. We need to keep working, to keep being reminded of what to do. When we arent putting in our 100%, which every human being succumbs to every now and then, we need to be pushed. Then go into the platforms of what he PLANS ON DOING, not WHAT HES DONE. Any jerk knows you use what youve done as an excuse to get out of doing something. Its hurting him doing that.

Instead of agreeing that not enough is being done, were told to shut up. Great.
