OK, it was 2 distinctly different statements
my opinion, & why I hold it (an unending rant)

1 I respect the man
2 but so much more was possible
had he not been blocked at every turn.

He did so much, and was willing to do more
it's just a low-down-dirty-shame that they chose
to bog everything down for who-the-hell-knows-why.

hope that makes more sense
