How does anybody say "oh, AoU could've been done in four issues. That makes that series bullshit" when YOU HAVE FIVE FUCKING TIME-DISPLACED X-MEN FROM THE PAST JUST FUCKING HANGING OUT IN THE PRESENT FOR 12 ISSUES AND COUNTING, for a longer period of time than AoU is taking place?
Seriously? What the fuck?

Because of the execution of the general concept. Bendis's execution of AoU simply isn't as good as his execution of All-New X-Men. It's really as simple as that. It's the same reason why one writer can have a fantastic take on one character but a piss poor take on another.
OK. It's being written better. I think it's pretty much the same, but as you said, YMMV.
But is it decompressed? Could the storyline be over now? Is the "dimension/timeline storyline cheap as fuck?"
I'm gonna have to go "yes" with those. So how is it that AoU gets slammed for that, but not Bendis' X-Men? That's ridiculous, man!

2. Are the time-displaced X-Men still in the present, even though they've met their older counterparts and despite the fact that some of the smartest people in the Marvel Universe either know, or should know, that there is a blatant risk to the space-time continuum to them being there?
3. Explain, in 25 words or less, how All-New X-Men's premise isn't "cheap as fuck.":
4. Explain, in 25 words or less, how 12 issues and counting of All-New X-Men with those time-displaced X-Men in the present "couldn't be over with by now."
It's a simplified explanation of the story but yes, Hank McCoy brought the original 5 X-Men to the future because he thinks that Scott Summers is going to bring about the mutant genocide. Oh and because Hank McCoy has been an absolute dick to Scott for the past several years. The man actually called him to tell him to basically tell him "I told you so!" before.
The time-displaced X-Men are still in the present because aside from Angel they don't want to go back to the past yet. Also, the smartest people in the Marvel Universe just learned that going to the X-Men and asking them to do anything that they don't want to do is a bad idea. See Avengers vs. X-Men.
We don't know when the original X-Men will go back home or if they will go back in the same condition they left.
It's an ongoing series. They could change history and we won't know until the long-term story is over.
Why is it that "those who like the series have to cling to some hope that they're right?"
That's absolutely ridiculous. It's utterly ridiculous. That statement is so asinine, it's like me saying, "the people who hate this series are so totally invested in saying that they hate it, they won't give any credence to what it's done well."
Is that statement true? It's every bit as true as what you said -- or just as asinine.
Take your pick.
