    I'd give him a C. However, I do recognize that basically anyone wouldn't be doing a better job. As much as the uneducated hacks here like to pretend, there really is no good method of getting out of a financial crisis recession for the US. I keep bringing that up with historical examples and certain users here run away like it's the plague.

    The rabidly conservative seem to agree with me.

    Re: Presidential Report Card

    C- for me... but im an easy grader sooooo... an F is like Hitler

    I really dislike the political games he plays, he really comes off as a person that just does everything for show. I don't feel the passion from his own perspective on things; he just does things that would give him a better advantage at doing whatever the outcome he wants...

    What i do like about him is, i strangely have a unwanted trust for the guy if anything REALLY bad happens... like an attack or continental-war, he would step up and do what needs to be done in my opinion. I think its the whole thing to do with Osama is what gives me this impression, but that could have been another thing just for show/ a big political gain.

    Re: Presidential Report Card

    On the Libya situation.. I think people really focus on it too much when they criticize Obama. We've spent less than 2 billion dollars there, that's a tiny fraction of the overall annual budget, and not a single US casualty. The only problem is that there aren't really any US interests being protected, unless I'm wrong.

    Labeling carter as the worst suggests a significent lack of historical knowledge. You call Carter worse then the presidents who failed to prevent the Civil War. A war that cost more American lives then any other war in history. A war that almost ended the entire country. Futhermore, by calling Carter the worst, you argue he's worse then Hoover, who's policies of austerity likely caused the recession of the late 20s to turn into the Great Depresssion.

    Carter is nowhere near the worst, or even the top 5 worst.

    IMO, rating the worst presidents is a good measure of figuring out who's a hack. Non-hacks generally will put Hoover or Buchanan as one of the top 5 worst presidents. Carter never makes the list.

    Economy: He did a pretty good job with the stimulus, which likely saved the US from a depression instead of a recession. Although he didn't cut much spending and didn't do a whole lot of a good job of reform, he did a fair job. B
    Foreign policy: Libya was a complete failure, with a half-as*ed attempt to manage a semi-war. He was quite patient in diplomacy, but too patient in my opinion. He made some blunders and Afghanistan wasn't as he promised in his campaign. C
    Internal affairs: Spent too much time glorifying himself in his speeches and books, but most of his policies like healthcare were okay, but not the best. B+
    Other factors: He made some good decisions, like sending in the SEALs instead of a drone to OBL. He had guts, and he knew how to play the game of politics. He was a pretty fair president in my opinion. Not a hyperpartisan hack like some other presidents. He knew how to negotiate, have peace, and was generally a good president. A-
    Overall, a B/B+

    hoover and buchanan both sucked. Hoover especially because he should have known better but there you go. but i tend to throw LBJ, Wilson, van Buren, and FDR in there as well. I should toss in Adams... but I can't, I just can't.
