    Again, it's not from Obama at all. It's from others, sure.

    But that's no more realistic than saying Bush is racist because Kanye West said he was.

    I actually wrote your response for you and sent it out. And I nailed it. (actually I missed part of it. in addition to your verbatim responser i also predicted there would some comment about sources...)

    Yep...his entire administration...but not Obama...

    Re: Grade the Obama Administration

    I am actually astonished that so many people disapprove of his foreign policy, seeing as how President Obama ran on being a dramatic change from the Bush Administration.

    It seems like most people agree that his managing of the Bureaucracy has been an absolute failure. I am curious how big of a deal people think this is. How important is the President's Role in managing the Bureaucracy that he serves as a functioning CEO over?

    What effects do people perceive the federal bureaucracy as having in their lives?
    There is nothing more dangerous to the liberty of Man than a Government or a Religion seizing upon the strings of an overdeveloped herd instinct amongst the people.

    Replies?
    I'm all for getting out of there, too, but getting out after fully stomping the enemy, something that Obama nor his predecessor refused to do.

    Re: Grade the Obama Administration

    I'll have to withhold judgement of his tax policies until he actually has one. But I expect I will disapprove of it, based on his ideological views.

    On the war issue- I think we should get out altogether.
    On the economy- I think he is inept.
    On his foreign policy- he's an apologist, and I have no respect for his approach.
    On his bureaucracy management- there aren't many presidents who I think do a good job, so I can't blame a bureaucrat for being a bureaucrat.

    You didn't point to people in his administration. You point to people who are authors and commentators.

    By your argument then, Bush and Cheney called everyone who disagreed with them anti-American Terrorist-lovers.

    If you'll accept my premise, then yours can be true. Otherwise, you are giving nothing but spin.

Without such distinctions, this sort of "poll" really doesn't say much.
    Hasn't raised taxes??? Do you smoke? Lots of people who smoke would disagree with you.
    Not sure when Bush tax cuts expire, but he says he will let them expire. That to me is a tax increase!

    Re: Grade the Obama Administration

    Where is the oil platform as an issue? The administration handling of that is absolutely atrocious. All the administration has done is make the CG and BP jobs more difficult. If ADM Allen says BP is doing all it can, that is what he means. He has no hidden agenda. He'll be retiring soon. He sounded, the last time I heard him, like he was getting administration pressure instead of administration assistance. What a circlejerk.

    If BP can't handle the entire load of the work there then the administration MUST fill in the gap by calling in other available resources like Navy ships, contracting fisherman, calling in materials from other countries, streamlining EPA obstructions to stopgap measures such as the sand banking Gov Jindel has proposed. None of that is happening and how long has this been going on?!!

    Inexcusable! I'm just waiting for the narcissist in chief to try to point the finger at someone else as we all know he will.

    He's a dramatic change from the Bush Administration all right, but not always in a good way. The results of his Af-Pak policies are considerably worse than Bush's so far...although to be fair, Obama was dealt a much worse hand at dealing with Af-Pak than Bush was.
