We were shouted down, insulted, and told "Nuh uh!" for saying such things. We were told just wait and see, he was going to be different, that we should be voting for him because he's really going to be different.
He ran on being a "Change" from typical politics more than any Presidential candidate I can think of. It was pretty much his core, central point in the campaign. All politicians talk about it a bit, but he made it a central issue. And his followers bought into it hook, line, and sinker and attacked anyone that dared to say that wasn't the case.
So now, after he hoodwinked the American population, those that were saying he was just like every other politician before hand are pointing out examples showing they were right. Not surprisingly, those that attacked them before now are either silent or make excuses.
You can't run on a central issue, get your followers going rabid at people that dare to question his integrity on that central issue, get elected and basically go back greatly on that central issue that helped get him elected, and then expect not to be called on it.
