    mad Re: Grade Obama so far!

    I gave grade F.

    Most of my points are covered by other posters who also gave an F.

    I want to emphasize the overbearing attitude and superiority complex that Obama has. That he infers that it is no tot the American people as a service that he is willing to serve, but as a sense that it is of his noblesse oblige that he deigns to tell us what he will permit us to have and what to do.

    Obama is the most narcissistic politician since Theodore Roosevelt, who lacks humor save for a type that includes a schadenfreudistic bent. Any self deprecating humor is coming from the TPOTUS.

    His constant campaign mode is tiring, his debasement of the Presidency to nations large and small. His apology tour to Europe, and absolute cluelessnes
    on protocol. And his blindness of the power of nations.

    The placement of tyrants in positions of unchecked power, establishment of paramilitarian groups that are loyal to him and not to the people or the Constitution.

    The acceptance of a medal and renumeration from a foreign power before approval by Congress.

    By importing to this country terrorists who under the laws of war do not benefit even under a status of POW status equaliavent to that of a Citizen or a legal resident.

    Imposing on the Citizenry a monstrous debt that would shackle untold generations to come. And for such purposes to reward only those people and institutions who brought him to power. And of some of those people and institutions who are foreign have inimicable intent on this country and its people.

    Proposing programs that are more pogroms against the weakest members of society, such as government healthcare which ultaimently will require denial of service causing deaths of the elderly and those who care may be deemed to expensive or who's politics are deemed impertantant.

    I guess i just had to rant about this.

    Re: Grade Obama so far!

    Grade: A-

    Pros: Determined to institute a nationalized health care plan with a public option, lifted the stem cell research ban using federal money, proposed pullout of all American troops in Iraq by 2010/2011 on schedule as of last month, supports the Democratic Congress in laying the smack down on shady credit card company/bank practices, foreign policy record immaculate, sympathetic to the scientific community when it comes to global warming and supports their findings by political action, and seems to generally know what he's doing as President of the United States, which is more than I can say for his predecessor.

    Cons: Needs to be more liberal on social issues. Don't Ask Don't Tell should have been repealed yesterday. Gay marriage should be instituted on a federal level, overturning any and all statewide Constitution bans on the practice. Would like to see our current National Motto ("In God We Trust") be replaced with the original one ("E Pluribus Unum").

    What do you think of his stand in Afghanistan? I have mixed feelings.

    Re: Grade Obama so far!

    I don't like the short-term mentality that is required to actually give a grade for a first year in office. I didn't begin to really judge Bush's actions until about 2003. So in 2011, I'll probably give out a grade of Obama's performance.

    Essentially, he gets an "I" for "incomplete" right now.

    The media and pundits, on both sides, gets an "F-" for pandering to sensationalism even more than they did during Bush's tenure. This counrty is headed straight for the ****ter, but it isn't any single politicians fault, nor is it something that can be blamed on one party.

    It's the people who are to blame. All of us. We've been turned into goldfish, with 7 second memories unable to hold a cogent thought within our heads for any amount of time.

    I'm getting closer and closer to thinking the whole system should just be scrapped and rebuilt.

    Now for a musical interlude:

    Re: Grade Obama so far!

    Maybe low C to D range. Actually, probably well entrenched in the mid D range. He's a piss poor president who has only proliferated the crap Bush was doing in terms of wars and growing government power. But there is worse (FDR) and if we're going on an absolute scale, there is MUCH worse (Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Steve from next door who doesn't clean up after his f'n dog, etc). Well maybe if we consider those guys, he's back in the low C maybe high D range.

    Jefferson! But only because I'm biased and he's my personal hero (at least where it pertains to political philosophy).

    Going by proportions, Obama has made only minor contributions to our existing debt, trillions and all, and only tiny alterations to future deficit projections. The best criticism going in this direction is that he has no plan to reduce U.S. deficits, however, that is an insincere complaint because no president in the last thirty years except Clinton has had such a plan. There is no reason to suddenly make the Obama Administration personally responsible for a hallmark of U.S. policy; that is like blaming a single Cold War president for the entire Cold War. Your other point is too obscure to address.
