It's sad to say, but this really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.
I mean how many do you think honestly believed that Obama would come in and immediately fix things and "change" everything?
That real sad part is; probably a lot.

You have to admit, there are a lot of unrealistic Obama supporters out there and even on this board who think that when Obama is elected, things are going to just magically get better almost immediately. Obama is saying that's not going to happen. The economy is still going to suck, troops are still going to be in Iraq (remember he went back on his word to withdraw troops from Iraq way back in the election) and things are going to be relatively unchanged for a long time to come.

So let me see if I understand this correctly. Obama doesn't have a majic wand to fix the nation, and he knows it and admits it will take time and effort. Hes realistic enough to see that it's a big job because of all the years the republicans have been running things mostly by decree.

So because he cant fix everything the day he hits office, we ought to vote for Mccain, and just keep on down the road we've been on for so long? That's like being in a car going over a cliff and saying why the hell try to open the door and jump, you'll just skin yourself up that way.
An effort to make changes for the benefit of the country is better than saying "in for a penny, in for a pound" and letting the rich have another round of ripping off this country. How many ladies here would tell a rapist, "Well, now that you've had your way, can we get married next Tuesday?"

Story Quoted Here
Obama lays plans to deaden expectations of change happening after the election. Obama’s people say that many of Obama’s disciples are unrealistic in their hope for change.
He didn’t mind playing on those expectations, and even working those expectations into a frenzy, in order to get elected.
Isn’t that what this politician is supposed to be about?
Hope, Change, Unity?
And now that he’s going to win - those expectations are flushed.
I’ll take this opportunity to say it … I told you so.
I'll keep my freedom, my guns, and my MONEY; you can keep 'THE CHANGE'.
Oh wait - change and hope are no longer being offered.
