President Obama Gives Himself A B+ Grade

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired Sunday night, the president claimed progress on economic and international fronts.

Obama says the only thing that stands in the way of giving himself a better grade is the fact that some elements of his agenda, health care reform and putting more Americans to work remain undone.

On the ABC special "Christmas at the White House," Obama told Winfrey that "the biggest burden on me right now is that economic growth has happened, but job growth has not happened."

He sees as a plus the fact that the United States is pulling out of Iraq and says the U.S. is on the correct path in Afghanistan.

    Obama is a joke and is only president because of his race.

    Radog, I'm not saying that I KNOW that he is or isn't Christian, but many Christians don't believe in swearing on the Bible. I'm not sure how common it is, but there are people who request other ways, in court. I'm sure that Obama was the first to do so as being sworn in as president. But, keep that in mind. I'm not trying it to persuade you, but to inform you that not EVERY Christian swears on the Bible, because they feel it's a wrongful act against the Word and God.

    Well, Mr President, your self grading was regraded last night. Apparently, Mass gave you a D. Take notice, you are academic probation now, pending elections this November.
