    C+. I admire the affordable care act, getting out of Iraq, Bin Laden operation, and how he has managed to maintain sanity against the multiple media outlets that serve as 24/7 bull**** propaganda machines who have no other missions than to cast him in a bad light. Faux News(Bull**** Mountain), Glen Beck's network, Rush Limbaugh's show,etc... And the political party opposed to his having no other goal than to remove him from office.

    Because of that I am more understanding of his position. My C+ also isn't as bad as some other people's C's apparently.

    That being said I wish he would have been the much more liberal and progressive president he said he would have been.

    I don't like that system so I am not going to participate. I'd rather snipe from the sidelines.

    Well, I pretty much agree with everything that you have said.

    Obama has been more of a centrist than I would have liked him to be. But getting re-elected gives him a passing grade in my book. Now we'll just have to wait and see how history judges him. I believe that he will be graded a lot higher than G.W. Bush.

    Just curiously asking.
    As the leader of a country where nobody wants to be a country, he has stayed pretty even.

    B-.

    The revisionist have already wrote Obama's history back before he was elected POTUS back in 2008.

    Since most historians tend to be liberals I am going to guess that Obama will look OK in the history books.

    What about the British, French and German historians ?

    In fact you're in a better position to opine on that than most of us.
