I've never really understood the obsession with the presidential 'honeymoon'. It seems to me that people tend to like the new guy until he tries to do something (or after some time has passed, fails to do something).

Is there much evidence that American presidents are actually able to accomplish more during their first 6 months than they are able to accomplish in any 6 month period after that?
