The United States is perpetually like this. No matter who is elected, even. And this is just because the US's politics are... well, incredibly polarized and petty. (The two parties in control of the US are the Democratic and Republican political parties, whose disagreements are so debilitating for the government that perpetually nothing gets done unless the president creates an executive order. BUT if they do that then Congress will get angry, or rather, if the president is a Democrat the Republicans in Congress will get angry, and if it's a Republican president then the Democrats in Congress will get angry. Everyone's always angry, though.)
(I always imagine the US as looking put together (a little bit) in front of other countries, but in reality the US either has two children who can't get along or one can make the US itself prone to yelling at himself in the mirror. Not quite Dissociative identity disorder, but like it.)

(America is ridiculous.)

Right now, there is so much in America that gets an equal amount of love and hate. I'd like to see how that would turn out as a comic here.

Shit! That's exactly what happened with Obama!

This is so true, at least that I've noticed with Obama. I only really started to pay attention to politics around the time he first started running for office. I wonder what'll happen in the next election...

Part of the problem is that, it's actually very difficult to design a system that caters to the needs of 319,000,000 people over 3,806,000 sq miles (9,857,000 sq km) - that doesn't do horrible things along the way to accomplish it.

That said, there's too much money going into US politics on all sides and at all levels, and rigid adherence to strict ideology on the basis of how one sees the world (_not_ the other way around, as the political parties do try to cater to the whims of the electorate) never solves anything in the long-term. Buyer's remorse two months in, is still kinda fast though.

America is using a broken and corrupt system. I expect a revolution in the near future, similar to France's revolution - except that it'll probably lead into WW3 because of the US's current "stabilizing" force in the world (in defense of us, we've only toppled... what, half the Middle East? Meh)

Unfortunately America is more of an Oligarchy than a Democracy, we don't get candidates that do what is best for the public, but instead what is best for a few key organizations in the US. It's depressing and the system is in need of reform, but the Catch 22 with it is that we need someone in office who would be willing to reform the system.
