Obama's First Year You Rate
 
Ok its been one year now and I'd be interested to see how people here would rate the job he has done. Rate him from A to F add any comments and if you don't mind also say if you voted for him.

I'm not sure that you can rate how he's done based on results since it's only been a year. I'm not sure that would be fair. I guess you can rate him based on his actions over the last year. The country was and is mired in the worst economic times the majority of us have ever seen. Neither Obama or McCain could have "fixed" the ecomony in one year. It's going to be tough for many years to come and there's nothing Pres. Obama or anyone else can do about it. It's got to run it's course.

If I had to rate his actions, I'd say maybe a C.

Are we judging him based on god or human scale?

B+ i guess.

I wish he would have been way more aggressive on health care and proposed a full national plan to start...he went weak from the beginning and now we're stuck w/ the same shitty private plans in all likelihood.

Eh. I'd say C. Lots of talk. Not much aggression. Talk of bipartisanship and what seems to have developed is a bigger divide. He better do some magical tricks in the next 3 years or he can forget about running for a 2nd term.

If you grade him on his campaign principle of "Change" i think he has failed there pretty badly. I am unhappy with what he has done or attempted to do so far, but I don’t know think my political opinions should be rolled into how I grade him, so ill stay out.

But im posting because I was reading the pft comment section on Tim Tebow today and someone said this:

[I]1. BlackberryBartakamos says: January 26, 2010 8:26 AM [/I]
[I]This is like deja vu. I mean Tebow failing is about as obvious as Obama being just the same kind of fail. Everyone's been calling it except for his blind supporters.[/I]

This makes perfect sense to me. People either broadly believe Tebow (Obama) is going to succeed and do and great job no matter if he does or not. Some of the Tebow fanatics will believe that if Tebow (Obama) ends up failing as QB (President) its because he was in the wrong situation, not because he wasn’t qualified or had the abilities to be QB in the first place. So if Tebow fails these people are ultimately going to believe that the team that drafted (voted for) Tebow turned out to have a bad supporting cast (cabinet), or there is a disparity or a rift in the ideals of the coaching (legislature) or ownership (constituency), which ultimately leads to Tebow’s failure. They’ll say Tebow never had a chance, and what he did considering his opposition was successful nonetheless.

Obviously the opposite is true. If Tebow ends up being great in the NFL the Tebow haters will say well it turned out that he came into a team that couldn’t go anywhere but up and everything fell into place for him.

My point being is people are going to be blind supporters of both Tebow and Obama. Unless either does something remarkable that both supporters and naysayers can find greatness in He’s going to fail and succeed in the respective eyes of His critic and fan.

He said alot of stuff that he has not done like he said but as for the war he pretty much has done as he said. He said we would get out of Iraq which we are just not as fast as he stated (I give him somewhat of a pass on that because I think he had better info once in office). Af. he said he was going to build troops their which is what he is doing.

B. he took on fixing the economy as the first thing to do in office. i think he helped stabilize what was looking to be a bottomless pit for the economy. the market leveling off then rising happened quicker than I or most on here expected. (we had a thread taking predicitons on how far the dow would fall)

i stopped following politics after my 1st year of law school. too many know it all absolutists and i found myself turning into one of them. not fun people.
