    I probably would have voted for Hillary too. I am really impressed with how she has been acting as the Secretary of State and I think she would make a good president.

    Re: Your Grade for Obama

    A 0
    B 11 x 3 = 33
    C 26 x 2 = 52
    D 21 x 1 = 21
    F&-10
    106/68 = GPA 1.5

    Is this guy really going to get re-elected even factoring in affirmative action?

    This poll is pretty squewed. I think most serious people would give him a B- or C+. Certainly not good, but certainly good enough to proceed to the next year. The presidency isn't a cut-throat dance school that cuts people who aren't in the top however-many percent (although that's a funny image). It's more like a curved grad school where Obama is finishing top of the class despite getting 60% of the questions right on his exam.

    Seriously?!I thought people were being very charitable. I think because he seems to honestly be trying many were being very charitable the first place.

    Maybe I'm too used to educational institutions where a C is an enormous mark of dishonor. There are only a handful of presidents I would give lower than a C to, and Obama is not among them, all things considered.

    Re: Your Grade for Obama

    I voted "C", but it's more like a C- or D+.

    Unlike Bush and most of the GOP, he at least is somewhat sane and not entirely detached from reality.

    That said, I disagree with many of his policies. The worst thing, in my eyes, is that he did not end the blatant human right violations in the name of the "war on terror", but under his watch, they were even expanded. It's now possible for the executive to detain US citizens extralegally. Even Bush didn't go that far. And US run gulags still exist all around the world, not just in Guantanamo Bay and Baghram. It's become obvious now that this is a systemic problem and has not much to do with the respective puppet in office. It's a broken, corrupt system running amok and elections won't change it.

    I don't see that his economic policies are all that horrible. I'm no expert, but I guess they are a reasonable middle way to keep the economy somewhat running (compared to a total crash, as would result if there was no stimulus) based on moderate inflation. Inflation isn't the worst that can happen to an economy (yeah, it's a German saying that). Apart from that, 95% of the economic trouble and budget deficit is not his fault anyway, but either inherited by Bush, or due to economic developments that have not much to do with government policies.

    On many social issues, Obama was way too tame, but that's probably the best he could give, considering the massive public opposition to his plans.

    But I really resent his failure to end human right violations. That makes me consider him a lesser evil at best. Bad thing is, all possible GOP candidates are much worse on this field, except maybe for Ron Paul. If Ron Paul wins the nomination against all odds, I'd probably support him over Obama. If not, it's pro-Obama by default, because any other GOP candidate would butcher human rights and have them for dinner. Seriously, we're talking about rotten moral wrecks who sing "bomb bomb Iran" or who boast with the executions they ordered, or religious lunatics.

    Are you really trying to say that those that gave Obama a D or F are not serious people? That our votes don't count and as such the poll is "skewed"? Sorry but I am quite serious when I say that Obama is among the worst presidents that we have had in a very long time.

    The man is not a leader, he does not compromise on the things that he should compromise on and he does compromise on the things that he shouldn't compromise on and then there are the times that he just rams things through like it or not.
    The guy spent more in his first year than Bush did on the Iraq war.
    The guy promised transparency not only in general but especially for Health care reform...instead Obamacare was developed behind closed doors.
    The guy bowed to another foriegn national.
    He did a horrible job during the oil spill.
    He keeps saying that we need to ween our nation off of foreign oil but he won't let domestic oil be drilled for. As far as I know he hasn't even considered nuclear energy.
    He has signed legislation renewing the Patriot Act.
    He has signed legislation that requires citizens to buy insurance from private companies against their will.
    He has signed legislation that allows America to be deemed a warzone when no one is attacking us and the only wars going on is on the other side of the world....opening up the possibility that any citizen can be picked up and imprisoned without trial indefinitely.
    And finally but not least, he conducted a war in Lybia without the consent of Congress and is getting away with it by saying that since there are no soldiers on the ground it isn't a war. (sorry but if the same exact thing happened to the US you can be damned sure that we would consider it an act of war)

    And those were just off the top of my head. This President deserves nothing more than a D. Perferably an F (without the traitor bull crap in the poll)

    I would give him no better than a C-. I am being generous since he is a Democrat which is an automatic disqaulification for me.

    Ds get degrees. I can only think of one American President I'd give an F to, but we've had a few Ds.
