    No of course not, the far left feel betrayed by him. He's too centrist for them, and he's too left wing for Conservatives. He may have some of the Independents still but the extraneous actions and obvious misses in his first 3 1/2 years as well as the joke of "HOPE and CHANGE" have many independents wondering if they should just stay home and watch a movie on election night.

    Re: Your Grade for Obama

    All around he did nothing to deserve a bad grade, but he did nothing outstanding either. I was hoping that he not get re-elected simply for falling short by so much of what he promised, but at this point I cannot find a candidate from the Republicans that would do a better job. I say B because as stated above he did nothing amazing or great, but he was able to not do anything for people to really disapprove of.

    No. Fitzgerald was not an initial.

    You do realize that in the context of Egyptian life - pretty much everything you stated was already going on under Mubarak - correct? If anything the Mubarak regime washed out the history of Egypt pre-coup-d'etat and the military regime by extension deemed most of the previous 150 years of Egyptian history as evil fabrications of the West.

    Should the far left not feel betrayed by him? I'd agree with most of your post, though. He's stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Re: Your Grade for Obama

    I give him between a C and a B.

    he has done good & even great things, such as killing Bin Laden, signing a new nuclear weapons treaty, passing a good Financial Reform act, ending the Iraq War, and putting tobacco under FDA regulation.

    but when it comes to understanding the GOP and their dishonest ways, and especially trying to negotiate with them, Obama has done poorly. Let's hope he learns from his mistakes and does better in his 2nd administration.

    I think so... he promised everything to everyone. Frankly, I don't see how he wins given his record. He can't run away from it - I think that's why he's trying to run against Congress.

    Well Congress does have the lowest approval ratings in history... plus there's the fact they have turned into a bunch of hyper-partisans bent on not agreeing.

    killed Bin Laden.
    ended Iraq War.
    passed meaningful healthcare reform.
    passed meaningful financial reform.
    put tobacco under FDA regulation.
    signed good new nuclear weapons treaty with Russia.
    passed new fuel-efficiency standards for cars AND trucks (first time).
    stock market back above 12,000 points.
    unemployment heading down.

    Obama's record isn't perfect, but considering the mess he inherited, he's doing ok.
