The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
Let's see. I'll try to be as objective about it as I can:
Economic Policy: B
Health Care: Still pending, so I'll give him a "B" for effort.
Foreign policy: A-
Environment: still pending, but if he succeeds in Copenhagen then probably a "B" or even "A-"
So I guess that would give him a B+. Hey, not bad.
Economic Policy: D so far, but we will see where all this stimulus spending gets us.
Health Care: C, simply because he's obviously baling on the public option, trying to appeal to conservatives.
Foreign policy: B
Environment: B, I don't really follow environmental politics, but I haven't heard anything stupid from him yet.
Despite all the Bs and the A, I still give him a C, but he has 3 years ahead of him. Obama has done a lot of stuff whether you agree with him or not, he has still done a lot, which means the time until 2013 should be used wisely.
I think he still has time to redeem himself.
No links because I'm not gonna spend an hour just to get a point across, these are so obvious that I don't think you need proof:
- Stimulus spending
- Credit card reform
- Copenhagen talks
- Nobel peace prize
- Raising taxes to Clinton era status
- Initiating the pull out of Iraq
- Afghanistan surge of troops
- Initiating health care reform talks
- Lilly Ledbetter Act (not so obvious, solink at bottom)
- Spinelessness on health care reform
- Others I can't think of, but I will get back to you on that
Now, In my book, that's a lot for a president to do in less than a year into his administration, you may or may not think otherwise.

How's that my lord?

I will make one exception on the Credit Card reform, which I do like. I don't have credit cards, but it was a nice gesture to those in debt.
Ok then I won't say "done" I should say he's "involved in" all of those things. If he's involved in this many things, think of how many things he will do in the years to come.So I will agree that we should give him time, but saying that this is all stuff he's done is kind of a stretch. Unless of course you can provide links and some solid evidence to support said claims. And that Far Pay Act is just more racially driven division crap that he only signed. He didn't create or introduce it to the best of my knowledge.
Anyway the bottom line to my argument is that he has time to redeem himself even after the C I gave. I was being nice too. I mean, even though I'm liberal I still feel I should give him an D or F.
Actually Tucker says it best:
