Why is it taking so long for you to fix the mess I made?

–noun Slang.
1. unmitigated effrontery or impudence; gall.
2. audacity; nerve.

China Post Article
Leaders of the DPP and pro-independence groups said the major themes of the demonstration include highlighting the people's grievances as indicated in the general misery index and rising consumer price index after Ma's inauguration on May 20 by lifting the long freeze on fuel prices imposed by the DPP administration regardless of the soaring costs for imported crude oil.

They also blamed Ma for failing to quickly clean up and cure the economic and financial malaise created under Chen.

The people can no longer tolerate Ma's failure to rectify -- within 100 days -- all the problems left by the DPP in a long period of the past eight years, they asserted.

The DPP is organizing a rally on August 30 to protest the newly elected president of Taiwan. Their complaint: Ma Ying-jeou hasn't fixed the mess left behind by 8 years of a-Bian and the DPP. He's only been in office for 100 days. I'm sure it took more than 100 days for the DPP to mess up Taiwan.

The participants will gather at two sites and march towards the Anti-Corruption Plaza.
Motorists and travelers are advised to shun the parade routes and areas surrounding the Anti-Corruption Plaza, named after the largest-ever public rallies held on the island against rampant corruption during the eight years of former president Chen Shui-bian's DPP administration.

Is this a parody? The DPP is gathering at a plaza named in honor of protests against themselves? At the same time as a-Bian and his family is being investigated of stealing $20M and transferring it to Swiss accounts?! Amazing!

I'm tired of posting about China. There's too much crap and it's depressing to read about it. I did buy a book about China; maybe I'll do a book report next.

DPP is not justified for the parade as it did not critize it's own ex-chairman's corruption while accuse Ma for his nothing-wrong doing. A large part of Taiwanese has no moral standard except the interest of party including the new Chairwoman of DPP. I am pessimistic of Taiwan's democracy until one day you have the same moral standard as embezzlement and taking bribery is a crime as the universal moral standard around the world.
