I'd give him a solid 'C.' He's helped us make some big strides in human rights (I wish we'd go further-I still can't get married), but there is still a lot of imbalance in the system (I don't agree with the way welfare works currently; not a bad thing, just think it could be better.) Economically, I think he's probably done the best with what he has to work with, even if I wish there was another way (I'd have liked to see us NOT bail out all those corporate fools, let 'em fall apart; allowing newer and more progressive companies or industries rise up.) And I don't think he handles foreign policy all that well - BUT there's a lot about it that I don't know about too. And the GiANt caveat to the whole thing: He cannot directly enact 'change.' That job is for congress (the Legislative branch); they make the rules! Maybe we should grade them more often...
good points JAYSON! Do you think he will get reelected,give him more time to figure it out?
a for him as a person b+ because hes getting things done or at least trying to. but then agian all presidents are puppets, but i fully support obama.
Well Im not one to say what needs to be done or how something should work. But i do know that the economy has gotten much worse in the recent years. Idk how to run a country but thats not my place to its the president. Our military is withdrawing but it isnt proven by our economic status. So who knows, theres a good president out there somewhere but its not Obama
latest polls show there are MORE jobs and unmemployment in most states has improved.....I would assume that is a sign the economy is getting better,however,wow on the price of gas......
