Re: Obama's First Year You Rate

C. Like every other politician... he has not affected me for better or worse in my daily life save the Cash for Clunkers program.

I would have rated Bush a C, he never affected me for better or worse in my daily life save for the stimulus checks he sent out.

Clinton, C.

And so on, and so on, and so on, and so on until the end of time.

Until we truly eliminate party lines (which will NEVER happen) things are going to be pretty much the same. The ultra-political people on here can argue me with on this all they want, but since I've been born, I can never thank nor be pissed at any political figure that's been in office nationally.

Re: Obama's First Year You Rate

I voted for McCain, who I feel was the better candidate, but the poorer campaigner. I'd have to give Pres. Obama a C- based on how little he has done, compared with the unrealistically high hopes his supporters had for him coming in. Tempted to go into the D's on this, but like others have said, it's really early yet.

Re: Obama's First Year You Rate

Barry is looking real good, I give him a solid B...why? This is why. Can't argue with the numbers really:


* Promise Kept: 91
* Compromise: 33
* Promise Broken: 15
* Stalled: 87
* In the Works: 275
* Not yet rated: 2

Re: Obama's First Year You Rate

Hard to argue with these grades:

F -Job Creation
Obama Abandons "Saved or Created" Jobs Claims | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News.

F - Transparency of Health Care Legislation: After promising live coverage of the legislation process on C-SPAN the President; 1) The final Senate bill was written in secret. 2) To secure passage, the 58 Democratic senators and two independents hashed everything out behind closed doors - without staff at one time. 3) The administration committed to more than a billion dollars in earmarks in hopes of securing the 60 votes needed to pass.

F - Crap & Trade Proposal
If passed into law, a projected loss of over 1M jobs and a minimum of a 15% cut in emissions that would cost the average household in the bottom income quintile about 3.3% of its after-tax income every year.

F - Fuzzy (to say the least) math on job creation numbers. An $ 890.00 contract does not create 9 jobs
Recipient Project Summary

F - WMD Preparation
FOXNews.com - White House Disputes Report Giving Obama Failing Grade on WMD Preparation

F - 2009 Congressional Effectiveness
President Obama's 2009 Congressional Effectiveness Grade F+

"President Obama submitted his first budget, a $3.6 trillion blueprint, to Congress that increased spending by $1 trillion over the next decade. The year ended with about a $1.4 trillion deficit and a $12 trillion in total national debt. Obama gets a flat F for the fact that this administration has done nothing to lower government spending that was too high during the Bush years and seemed to accelerate month by month with the new administration."

However he does get the following good grade:
A - Mobilizing Conservatives

"Obama gets and A+ for helping to do what so many conservative leaders have failed to do over the past 20 years, organize a divergent movement around the idea of limited government, a balanced budget, no more bailouts, we the people being allowed to participate in government, low taxes and a respect for free market capitalism."

A - Scott Brown win in MA, taking over "Teddy Kennedy's" seat.


But don't take just my word for it, here's a link to a CBS poll on Obama's first year job perfromance. Put in your grades and submit and you'll get the numbers of how folks responding feel. The poll has been up for over a week.

Re: Obama's First Year You Rate

CBS' poll ought to show total number of votes, or like ESPN where you can roll over the map and see the votes per state. Strange to see a CBS poll that negative on Pres. Obama.

I agree. I certainly didn't expect the responses either on a Communist Broadcast System poll.

Unemployment is a big problem that's been back-burnered, and it's coming back to haunt the Administration in a big way IMO. It doesn't just affect the unemployed, it affects small businesses in a major way as well.

They probably have bots set up to skew the numbers

Re: Obama's First Year You Rate

I don't know. I think Mathews is being a little more critical lately. Swap him out with Olberman.

Here's a drinking game to go along with tonight's SOTU address.

I haven't watched politics in a while, but I watched Matthews reporting from Boston, and he made no attempt to hide his disgust with Brown's win. I thought he use to be a more moderate commentator, who could set aside his beliefs, and was shocked how stark his opinion was. To be fair he was more or less an observer, not the moderator of the show that was on.

Re: Obama's First Year You Rate

D- I'm still here and still have my business so I won't give him a total fail. I just don't agree with his politics but he did do a few things i agreed with. I cannot think of them at the time but they were not any major issues to start with.

Votes in Massachusetts, Virginia, New Jersey and Copenhagen may prove otherwise.
