“We knew this was going to take time because we’ve got this big, messy, tough democracy,” President Obama said at a campaign fundraiser in Chicago on Wednesday night”

But the context and the adjectives suggest to me more that he dislikes the system and wishes he could be more autocratic.
Beyond that I like the professor’s analysis. Just imagine where we would be if he got his way entire.
