What Grade Would You Give Obama?


Obama gives himself B+ for first months in office

In a recent interview with Obama's chief propaganda minister, Oprah, our president lightly awarded himself a B+ grade for his first year in office. Maybe I have low standards because I was far from being one of the best students during my schooldays, but B+ is pretty darn good. Here are a few things I have remembered from Obama's tenure thus far:

January 22- Obama orders the closure of Gitmo and forbids the use of all harsh interrogation methods, including waterboarding.

January 23- Obama ends the funding ban on the Mexico City Policy, which would allow the federal government to fund overseas abortions with American taxpayer dollars.

January 26- Obama gives his first formal interview as President of the United States not to ABC, CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News or any other American news outlet, but to Al Arabiya in the Middle East. Shortly before the interview, Tim Geithner, a self admitted tax cheat, is sworn in as Treasury Secretary.

February 3- Obama nominates tax cheats Tom Daschle and Nancy Killefer to top White House positions. Both withdraw due to tax evasion. Judd Gregg is nominated for Commerce Secretary, but also withdraws due to differing opinions on the economy.

February 17- Obama signs the largest spending bill in history into law. The 900 billion dollar American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is passed and billions of dollars of taxpayer money is seized and redistributed for government projects and the advancement of liberal agendas. Over 9,000 earmarks are included in the bill.

March 2- 900 million dollars pledged for humanitarian aid for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

March 5- Sanjay Gupta is nominated by Obama as Surgeon General. He withdraws due to personal reasons.

March 9- Obama cancels Defense Department funding for a new long range bomber and aerial refueling tankers.

March 13- Detainees at Guantanamo Bay are no longer referred to as "enemy combatants" according to the Justice Department.

April 21- The Edward M. Kennedy Serve Act is signed into law with Obama's approval. The bill increases federal funding towards volunteer groups aimed at young people. All groups are focused on serving the government.

May 17- Obama gives commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame, amid widespread protest due to his abortion policy.

May 19- Obama vows to lower emissions by 2016 through new federally mandated fuel standards for automobiles, forcing car companies to make cars that get no less than 35 miles per gallon.

June 4- Obama gives a speech to the Arab world from Cairo, Egypt in an attempt to repair America's image among Muslims. Obama apologizes for America's wrongdoings.

June 26- Obama signs the infamous Cash for Clunkers bill into law. It fails miserably.

June 28- Obama hosts a reception in the White House commemorating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender month.

July 22- Obama comments on the recent arrest of Henry Louis Gates by a Cambridge, MA police officer, calling the police action "stupid". A media firestorm ensues.

September 9- Obama gives a Congressional speech to address his plan to overhaul healthcare.

October 2- Obama travels to Copenhagen to lobby for Chicago to become the site of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Chicago comes in last in voting. America's top commander in Afghanistan still waits on a decision from the president on a troop increase to help the deteriorating situation there.

October 5- Obama invites hundreds of doctors to the White House for a propaganda session to further his health care plan.

October 9- President Barack Obama awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

November 10- Obama refuses to acknowledge the terrorist attack on US troops at Fort Hood.

November 13- Obama bows down to Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama.

December 1- Obama finally unveils his long awaited Afghanistan war strategy. He pledges 30,000 more troops to the war zone.

And a few facts for you:

-Obama's approval rating has sunk from 65% in January to 44% today.

-The national unemployment rate is still above 10%, far from Obama's promise that he could get it below 8% by summer.

-After promising a "new era of transparency", Obama has appointed countless lobbyists and tax cheats to high government positions.

-A new trend of appointing "czars" has emerged in the Obama White House. The number of current czars is 38, more than any other president in history.

-Obama makes more entertainment appearances on television than any other president in history, going on the Jay Leno show, David Letterman show, and even making an appearance on ESPN to make his NCAA basketball picks.

-In Obama's first 50 days alone he spent 2.29 TRILLION dollars. That's 45.8 billion dollars a day.

I could go on and on. The Obama presidency up to this point can be summarized as follows:

-Massive increases in government spending
-Increases in federal debt
-Increases in national unemployment
-Growing government opposition movement among conservatives and independents
-Institution of failed policies
-Appointing of unqualified and questionable candidates for top government positions
-Deterioration of the War in Afghanistan and the delay of action regarding that war
-Continual lack of presidential behavior
-Unnecessary attention grabbing media blitzes
-Apologetic behavior towards the rest of the world

Doesn't surprise me in the least the Pharisee-in-Chief grades himself so well, considering this.

Hack,

What grade would I give Obama? Let me see...

An F. A serious, no joke, straight-up, big ass fat F.

Why? Welllll, let's see...um, because basically he's a Socialist wussy trying to be the president of the greatest Capitalist Nation on Earth and he is not worthy.

So, no soup for you, Barry. You fail. You suck. Go back to wherever the hell it is you say you were born and stay there. We do not like you or your policies or your Congress or your sissy ideals or the fact that you bow to anyone. Sissy. Wussy. Weak-assed liberal cupcake.

F for you.
