My mother used to say "you couldn't make him happy if you hung him with a new rope."
She meant that some people will find fault with any situation. The Nobel Peace Prize is one such situation. If it is given to a woman fighting the barbaric practice of rape as a tool of war in Africa, there are many who will say she isn't doing anything outside her own country, and it should have gone to someone more international. If it given to a former President who has intervened successfully in international disputes, the complaint would be that he should mind his own business, and not be out on his own in the world, since he's no longer a public figure.
Some people will find something to complain about no matter what Obama does because they simply do not like the fact that he is President. If he is aggressive internationally, they will complain that he thinks too much of himself and is hanging the US out to dry. If he fails to be aggressive enough to suit them, they'll complain that he "talks softly and carries no stick at all." (Those are, by the way, both comments I've read here in the Y!A Politics section.)
You simply are not going to please the Republicans as long as Obama is in office. I certainly hope they are unhappy for a minimum of 8 years.
The Republican outlook puts me in mind of the Louis CK comedy tour - "Everything is amazing, Nothing works." That guy is funny, mostly because he is spot on.
