Obama Gives Himself a B+

You know, Mr. President, you may have been following the right path when you decided to keep then American public in the dark regarding your grades, because when they see how you grade yourself, they're all going to laugh at you.

Is he calculating in the affirmative action numbers? Before I am called a racist, this is what occurs in higher education. I know it from experience.

This is why responsible teachers should never allow students to grade themselves. Especially narcissists. They tend to live in a very unreal world.

In other news, he has a rather unique idea about what 8 inches is.

Grade inflation is huge at Harvard.

It is interesting that Obama uses the metric of a grade to evaluate himself. It suggests that he is completely at home in the academic world where words are more important than deeds. That may be why the academics love him so. Unfortunately for Obama, lots of citizens think deeds are more important than words.

And by "American Public" you mean the absolute minority that failed to elect McSame into office right? Yes those inbred Repub's will probably laugh, but that really won't surprise the intelligent among us. Of course as we all see, you ditto-heads are merely leading by example. It's easier to take cheap shots than to actually work with someone for solutions, eh? But what to expect from the party of NO ideas....?

I understand that B+ is the minimum grade allowable in any AFFIRMATIVE ACTION program!!!

Thing is, in order to work with someone, the person has to come up with a workable idea, preferably grounded in reality, before anyone can work with someone on that idea.

Got that?

The idea that Duh-1 is an affirmative action student president is spot-on. How else to explain the complete lack of qualifications in a hire at this level?

And as far as "the party of NO!" goes, it seems to me that the jackass party said nothing but NO! for the entire time GWB was prez, and nearly all the time the elephants were in control of Congress (at least on major issues). It also seems to me the donkey reaction anytime anyone disagrees with anything any of their leaders says or proposes is more projection that thoughtful analysis.

And finally, I like your analysis, redc1c4.
