Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The euphoria is over. The Orange revolution in Ukraine flushed away some unpopular figures from the political scene, but was unable to deliver on expectations. Everyday life has not changed much for most of the people. The economy is still in a poor shape, and is suffering from structural issues, obsolete technology, low energy efficiency, etc, inherited from the Soviet era.
Isn't the situation much the same in Georgia?

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
