The issue here is that people are only upset and ready to fix things when "their side" isn't the one running the show. There wasn't a conservative waving protest flags when Bush screwed up, and there isn't a liberal waving protest flags while Obama screwed/screws up. While I perfectly well agree with your sentiment, realize that human nature, at least in our current hyper-conditioned state, will keep that from ever happening.
