What do you mean it is an American thing? Isn't it the same everywhere?

Any Europeans who think this is a joke? It's not. I make a habit of conspiring with a friend of mine to vote for opposing candidates so our votes cancel each other out. That way we've both done our civic duty by casting a ballot but not actually giving either of the two main party our support because there is no 'lesser of two evils', Both sides suck pretty much equally in their own ways, and between the two of them they control 90% of America's voters so the world will end and the dead will walk the Earth before any party other than the Democrats or Republicans gets elected to a major public office.

Obama presents a problem to majority of fairminded people who voted for him:
-- they want to say he's a lousy president, about as ineffective as Jimmy Carter; but can't bear to critizice him publically for fear of being branded "racist." Too funny.

Yup, US politics is pretty much always like this.

To be fair, it usually takes six months to a year after entering office for a high-level politician to begin really working on their own agenda. The months before that, they're getting used to the position (mostly acclimation to "business as usual") and doing "fireman" crisis aversion caused by last-minute instructions, appointments, and orders by the previous officeholder. The problems caused by "midnight appointments" is usually fairly minor, but red tape means it takes a while to smooth it all out. And no, usually voters don't see it and lose patience with the new guy quickly. And those in "the other" party are almost always angry at the results in the first place. Being in any high office in the US is a thankless job where you're not guaranteed to please anyone but ARE guaranteed to piss almost everyone off at some point.
