37. Many of us held our tongues for too long
Look, early on in this administration, a lot of us, while somewhat concerned by some of the President's staffing choices, nevertheless decided to hold any criticism in abeyance. We hoped for the best, even as we were a bit alarmed, by his selections of Geithner, Summers, Gibbs and various left overs from the Clinton administration, et al. In the intervening two years, on issue after issue, we've watched as promised and much-needed reforms were reduced to tinkering at the margins, mostly in favor of big business and big finance. Turns out our fears concerning many of those appointees were quite well founded. So, at this point, many of us are simply calling it like we see it, and doing so when we see it.
