    Many reasons:

    The Ethics Executive Order
    For transparency in his administration and ordering agencies to adopt a presumption of disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act
    For requesting agencies to provide recommendations to help him draft a New Open Government Directive
    For daring to launch a campaign to overhaul the healthcare system in order to provide coverage for more Americans
    For taking necessary steps to change policy in Afghanistan

    Many more.

    First, I should clarify that I was vehemently opposed to bailouts of banks, GM, or any other business.
    Regulation via standards which apply to all banks is fine if it addresses issues to protect consumers against fraudulent and criminal activities. Regulation which sets bonus or salary caps because the public and/or politicians view banks (or other corporations) as evil, unethical, at-fault, or otherwise promotes class envy is not legitimate regulation.

    -Constitution: Miserable failure, appointed possibly the highest number of czars to date, they are not accountable to anyone but him and aren't appointed. His wish list includes a switch from the "negative rights" constitution to a philosophy more leaning to government control(heard on clips from a radio program he guested on). Has been a gun control proponent, and there was that whole "emergency internet powers" debacle. Oh, and let's not forget the takeover of GM, Chrysler, AIG, and the multitude of banks, daring to try to limit pay of top executives, talks of overtaking Healthcare, and Cap & Trade.

    -Economics: complete failure, Trying the same tax increase and regulatory talk that has been proven for nearly a hundred years to NOT WORK, this man that passes for a U.S. leader obviously not one with a working grasp of the subject.

    - Foreign policy: Abject failure, the apology tour has pissed off his country, along with making us a target for undeserved derision and laughter by the international community(we are being laughed at for our actions when our only real shame should be electing Obama). This presedent is the perfect combination of clueless and weak when it comes to recognizing threats and how they are best dealt with.

    - Domestic agenda: Colossal failure, jobs are bleeding out like a knifed artery, the market is no longer in a free fall, however every time it sees a gain that is negated by the inherent losses that follow it, thus we are in a period of stagnation and possibly are looking at a double dip recession. The health talks could potentially add to unemployment initially and set up care shortages for the future if this becomes a reality. This is the fastest approval ratings drop in the history of presidential polling, and we aren't even at year one of this national catastrophe......sorry, I mean presidential administration.


    So, I hang a rock solid F on this president for total and abject failure.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yes but, even though I voted for him, even though he is a badass, even though he is very intelligent, the cons outweigh the pros.

    I think a lot of it comes from people who expected too much out of Obama, and then Obama just started to roll with it. Then he started believing that he could actually deliver on those promises. So far he has not, so the things he has not yet done and the negative things he as already done outweigh the good things he has done.

    Re: Grade Obama so far!

    President Obama decided to resource a fully fledged counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan, to answer his commander's request for more troops and accelerate the deployment, to stay and fight a most necessary war.

    I think he made the right decision, given the choices of maintaining the status quo and pulling out entirely.

    Personally, I feel heavy about it as I am not happy to see 35,000 more troops deployed in the ME with no clear way out. Still I support the President, I voted for him and I stand by him.

    PS: Reverend HH, I'm just adding to my list of reasons why I graded the President an A for his term of office so far. Considering how much he is trying to accomplish you have to remember that Rome wasn't built in a day.


    More to follow....
