How much longer

1st Man: We’ve been waiting a year already... how much longer?

2nd Man: There’s still four more years to go...

Yudhoyono has squandered much of the political capital he had at the start of his second term, and unfortunately with little to show for it. Nobody expected him to deliver on his promises of more prosperity, democracy and justice in just 12 months. But the nation has the right to ask for some signs from their President that Indonesia is making progress, to help build their confidence. This, unfortunately, was something the nation did not get. – Jakarta Post editorial, Oct. 20, 2010.
