To give pain is the tyranny; to make happy, the true empire of beauty.
- Richard Steele, English Essayist and Playwright (1672-1729)
If you’re an Obama fan, you should respect what the president said in the first month of his taking office:
“Look, I’m at the start of my administration. One nice thing about the situation I find myself in is that I will be held accountable. You know, I’ve got four years. And, you know, a year from now I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress. But there’s still going to be some pain out there. If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.” – Barack Obama, February 2, 2009

Results matter, you set the standards, by your own standards, you should be one and done, Mr. President.
