Obama gives himself a B+

President Barack Obama is giving himself “a good solid B+” from his job performance thus far and is brushing off polls showing his approval rating has dropped below 50 percent.

Obama was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey in a show that was broadcast on ABC on Sunday and the queen of daytime TV wanted to know how Obama would grade himself. Obama said he deserved a B+, which in the U.S. education system, is very good but not up to an excellent A.

He said he reached his conclusion because of the many challenges he had tackled and that if he gets a healthcare bill he can say, his grade would inflate to an A-.

“I think that we have inherited the biggest set of challenges of any president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. We stabilized the economy, prevented the possibility of a Great Depression or a significant financial meltdown.”

“The economy is growing again. We are on our way out of Iraq. I think we’ve got the best possible plan for Afghanistan. We have reset our image around the world. We have achieved an international consensus around the need for Iran and North Korea to disable their nuclear weapons. and I think that we’re going to pass the most significant piece of social legislation since Social Security and that is health insurance for every American,” he said.

(That line about Iran sounded like a little misspeak. As far as we know the U.S. at this point does not think Iran actually has a nuclear weapon, but is trying to develop one.)

As for his approval ratings, Obama said “it was inevitable” that they would fall.

    Guess he’s got other things on his mind – like the holiday season shopping.

    I think we all should have an A+, a Nobel Prize and a Tony Award! Problem is, did we EARN IT or was it nothing but self-flattery and patting our selves on the back, because no one else would?
    The man is totally pathetic and has NOTHING to be proud except that he duped millions into voting for his lying sorry communist azz!!

      Chinese proverb: “If we could see ourselves the way others see us, we’d probably deny it.”

      You’re right, he is pathetic. He has done nothing to uphold his oath of office, quite the contrary. He doesn’t believe that we could see him as the pathetic nothing he is, brushing off polls that show his approval rating dropping lower than any other American president at this point in presidency.

      I’d give him an F- but nobody asked me.

      mahalo for your comment.
      aloha!
