    Obama get's an A+. Regardless of how any conservative may grade him, if we apply a grading curve compared to Bush any grade Obama could receive would be an A+.

    Re: Grade the Obama Administration

    I'm not quite sure if there's anything he's done yet that I like. The big government Republocrats are all alike in the end.

    If we're using the same grading curve, then Obama would get the same grade as Bush as they are essentially the same thing.

Why all this discord and discourtesy, all this unprecedented destructive action? All to break the momentum of our new young president.
    They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama. The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist. That is one powerful reason. It is not the only one.”

    Replies?
    Yes, that's a good description.

    Now, where are the ranters about how he will cut and run? We heard cut and run, cut and run, cut and run over and over before the election, so why don't we hear that tired old phrase now?

    By supporting and proliferating the same things. Incentives to the rich, Wallstreet and the banks, to continuing and expanding the war in the Middle East, to continuing with interventionist policies, growing the debt, increasing spending in ways which benefit the People little and the elite most, etc.

    The real question is "How exactly are they different"? I think the only thing you can really say is that there was discussion on national healthcare under Obama...but even that ended in nothing more than a give away to the insurance agencies. Again, something which benefited the elite most and the People the least.

    Re: Grade the Obama Administration

    B+ foreign, D- domestic.

    His foreign policies are a little sloppy, but the world loves him so he automatically gets a little extra credit for it, not to mention that he hasn't overstretched the American war tentacles over the face of the planet.

    As far as domestic policies, he's been borderline inept.

    I question you specifically on why 'greedy' and 'rich' people are lumped together in your mind? I see greedy poor people (not all, but some who don't work when they can because they know the government will support them... which means they're basically taking tax dollars for no good reason) and greedy rich people (not all, but some who buy politicians that make laws in their favor and against the middle class, making the rich richer)

    Both are wrong. Very wrong. Both are stealing my money and I am angry. But to be so biased(/uneducated!) against one side and lump rich people in with greedy people is also wrong. It's disillusioning the picture. Let's not argue for one side for the sake that you generally agree with that side and so you feel compelled to support everything they do. Let's argue for the truth. Let's argue and decide the philosophies and principals behind an issue and then figure out the best way to resolve the problem based on the ideal philosophy that has been decided upon. This is what our forefathers did. It wasn't about votes. It was about what was right for all people. It's people like you that cause the biggest problem of all: Ignorance.
