Obama has failed as president in every way so an F seems the obvious choice here.
I'd have to defer until I hear the current score that the Nobel Peace Prize Committee would give him.
I would give Obama a gold star for participating because in progressive land we all get awarded for participating.
I gave him a D+. He did stop the tailspin to Depression economy he inherited from the First Dunce. He did not indict and prosecute the First Torturer for Human Rights violations and that is a fail. He initiated Obamacare and that's a plus. The NSA revelations are a complete fail. He accomplished little when the Democrats had legislative advantage and that's a fail. Libya is/was similar to Nazis attacking Czechoslovakia and that's a fail. Syrian intervention with jihadists as allies is a big fail, like going from Czechoslovakia to Poland. Continuing domination of gov't policy by Vertically Integrated Big Energy Corporations is a huge fail. Lack of commitment to Renewable Energy to combat Global Warming is a huge fail. Overall, he's an exponential improvement over his predecessor, the First Failure. Barely passing and he has not indicted any Banksters, another failure. He has allowed the CIA to continue grabbing power, another fail. It's a hell of a note that even his pathetic performance is, without doubt, an improvement over any Republican option. We are screwed and apparently we like it.
c+ based on his foreign policy which has been overall passive and has seemed reluctant to make descions regarding foreign policy. Looking to try and pull out of Afghan though and hasn't invaded any other countries so thats a positive.

AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
