    Re: Grade Obama so far!

    I voted A because I was unsure if people were going to vote A at all.

    My reason for voting A is purely nefarious, as I want to dilute the results.

    Apparently, it's not working.

    D ..but only because he hasn't started a war yet.

    The first war he starts will earn him an F; just like his predecessors.

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.
    do you have some proof that the "international community" is laughing at us? really, remember the DOH! headline when bush was elected a second time? THAT was the international community laughing at us.

    obama took over 2 wars and a recession........and 8 years of policy failure.

    A-

    A year out he is pretty much doing everything everything he campaigned on, and although it appears we'll never know how far off the Bush economic cliff we could have gone, things seem to be stabilized.

    If a HC bill gets passed, troops start returning from Iraq and no itnl. flare-ups such as Iran occur, he'll be sitting pretty for '12.

    He gets an A for effort certainly. I give him an A without reservations.

    He'll get re-elected. The Republicans are a joke and have no viable candidates.

    He gets a C from me. He's held things together well and kept the economic downturn from getting worse, but most of what he's done or is currently trying to do will be hard to judge for a few years until longer-term effects are seen.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I agree, he really has no good competition for 2012.

    Lucky for him, Republicans don't have an enormously high approval rating. If there were a Repub that was actually new and fresh, he would have a very hard time, but most are just Reagan-wannabes.

    It makes me think that if this trend of "not good enough" presidents continues, will we see a third party emergence?
