Heh!  :)  You're pretending to be a rational outside observer, aren't you?  :)
This is humans and politics - a rationality no-go area. Emotion rules!.

The unemployed crowd got him elected. He cares alright. He has four
years to do enough for them to sweep him into a second term. And he
doesn't have to do that much for them either, to get that result.
Their situation is so bad after many years of neglect, that even token
changes will mean a lot.

After three days you're complaining?  :)  This ship of state will take
years to change direction.
