I would give Obana an A+ for finally causing real and much needed change in this country.
For the first time since September 11th, I finally feel that the country is being lead by a rational person.
1. Economy. Obama was stuck with a total economic collapse. By the previous President's own admission we had only a short period of time before we were plunged into a second great depression. Now, the economy is recovering. An economic framework is in place, including for America's automotive industry. The second great depression never happened.
2. The War. As Obama promised, we are pulling out of Iraq and re-engaging Afghanistan. We no longer have a policy of torturing our prisoners. We now have a very good idea about how much longer this war will continue. We have a proposed deadline.
3. Foreign Affairs. Obama fascinates the world. Americans have garnered international respect because of our bold choice of our new President, and affirmation of our true nature as a civilized country. Obama is a great orator, He has saying the right things. He has been able to dramatically change America's image.
4. Health Care. We are finally moving towards a health care system that is fair and just. We are finally moving in the direction of the rest of the world.
Many people here will disagree with my above points. However, please take time to distinguish your thoughts from conservative media. Ask yourself where we were, and where we are at this second.
We are experiencing a radical societal change – for the better.
It makes conservatives nervous and fearful. I understand that. But the USA is the home of the brave. Don't give yourself over to unjustifiable fear or irrational hatred or cynical speculation.

At first, I thought obama the destroyer was joking when he said he'd give himself a solid B. Then you realise that he actually thinks he's doing a good job, this boob actually thinks he's doing good. Maybe if he'd stay in the US for awhile he'd see the damage he's doing.
I gave him the lowest score I could, solid D's all the way.

I'm sure in his mind he was being conservative and humble in grading himself a solid B plus... He didn't want to come off as arrogant, Inside I bet you he actually believes his grade is a solid A plus!

I gave him a massive raise from what should have been a C because he is actually trying to help solve problems from a global perspective. People and politicians have been solving their problems from their own personal perspective, or at least their national perspective, forever, and look where it's gotten us today. If more countries extended their arms of care to others, this world would be a much nicer and positive place.
