Why is cloudformation the way it is?

My stacks take over 10 minutes to execute, only for it to fail because of a small misconfiguration.

Why does it take 10 minutes to create a route53 record set through cloudformation, but takes less than a second to create through the web console? That is pathetic.

The people working on cloudformation should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

    Usually indicates your cloud formation is performing additional work and is blocked by some other operation.

    What happens if you create it using the cli?
