    C-. He had the opportunity to make some real progress when he had the supermajority and he blew it. Also his record on civil liberties is no better than Bush II's.

    My own personal grading system

    A's - made progress worthy of having your face on currency, such as reforming the economy and educational systems into the envy of the world (e.g.)
    B's - fine. Did your job well, made some progress perhaps, but mostly just didn't screw anything up.
    C's - squandered opportunities and failed to deliver on expectations
    D's - clearly contributed to the decline of the country, such as economically and diplomatically as happened under Bush II.
    F - country goes into civil war

    I'd give him a C+/B- and will always wonder how he would have done had the GOP not committed itself to his failing ... normally you want people to succeed ... since we're talking grades, I'm reminded of the kid who wants to do really well but another kid is making his life hell and therefore he can't perform at a higher level ...

    These are my thoughts:

    As the first African American president I felt he was in a unique position to influence race/culture/America in a positive way. I don't feel that he did. I feel like we are more divided now than we were before and he has made comments that either did not help or has made things worse.

    Instead of trying to work with opposition to accomplish meaningful change, he has tried to strong arm them and it has backfired.

    I give him a C.

    I gave him a D+ for a few reasons.

    1) He has done nothing to prevent another banking catastrophe.
    2) None of the bankers responsible for the crash were indicted.
    3) The middle class is still drowning
    4) He cannot seem to build a bridge between the Dems and the Republicans (though I put a lot of the blame on Boehner and the GOP)
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I don't think he can work with the opposition. The Republicans' credibility rests in not cooperating with Obama.

    At first I gave Obama a F, Then I decided to see what kind of grade Obama would earn if I graded him on a curve. Still a F.

    B minus. Successes in aptly reducing the fiscal deficit, the implementation of both the ARRA and TARP, kickstarting social reforms and a generally competent foreign policy. Negatives in term of healthcare reform implementation and results, in addition to his penchant for demagoguery.

    He has introduced items that even his own party wouldn't vote for, how exactly is that compromising with Republicans?


    "We dont mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

    Maybe it's just me but when I hear that... I don't interpret it as "hey guys lets work together and come up with something were both happy with"
