“Incomplete” is actually good news for those who fear the day anybody in this administration says “our work here is finished.”
President Obama’s assessment of his first term hasn’t changed since the last time he weighed in.
Asked to grade his first term in an interview with KKTV in Colorado, Obama said: “You know I would say incomplete…but what I would say is the steps that we have taken in saving the auto industry, in making sure that college is more affordable and investing in clean energy and science and technology and research, those are all the things that we are going to need to grow over the long term.”
The grade — typically given by teachers to students with unfinished work — is what Obama has given himself a number of other times.
When you were in school and turned in unfinished work at the deadline, what grade did that usually translate to? Here’s the video:
A majority of voters believe the country is worse off today than it was four years ago and that President Obama does not deserve reelection, according to a new poll for The Hill.
Fifty-two percent of likely voters say the nation is in “worse condition” now than in September 2008, while 54 percent say Obama does not deserve reelection based solely on his job performance.
Only 31 percent of voters believe the nation is in “better condition,” while 15 percent say it is “about the same,” the poll found. Just 40 percent of voters said Obama deserves reelection.
Judging from this new RNC video, one thing Obama has definitely earned an “A-plus” for is consistency of rhetoric.
