It's hard to sympathize with anyone in this situation. Adama and Roslin have been ineffective leaders, misleading their people for "the greater good." Turns out the greater good was a lie. Zarek is an opportunist, and Gaeta is bitter and personally motivated, too. They may have a point, but the next question is, how can they do better than Roslin and Adama?
An extremely relevant point. All Felix and Tom know is that they don't like where the Roslin/Adama administration are leading them. What would their motivations be if their coup succeeded?

I'm not even sure they know.

Sort of shades of G.W. Bush. His detractors (of which I'm one) were calling for his head for eight years but all they could focus on was how wrong he was and not what they would do differently beyond "the opposite of him."
