I've been thinking about this for the last few days. I was a big supporter of Obama during the election, but I'm going with average. It will go right to excellent if he can get single-payer through for healthcare though. That could mean an earlier retirement for me down the road. Plus, everyone in this country deserves universal and free healthcare. Screw the AMA, GOP and HMOs.

How can it be rated when you inherit such a mess.

I would say poor so far, he built up a lot of expectations and hasn't done a lot to deliver, also the economic crisis was being hindered before he entered office, but now the regulations for the money are so screwed up and few people have really gone after correcting them.

Given the circumstances of what he inherited, I think he is doing a good job. There is room for improvement though.

I think he's doing a good job. He's definitely doing better than Bush.

The debt was racked up while he's been in office, but it was put into motion before he entered office, he has racked up debt himself, but the rather large national debt is something that just came to head and isn't really able to be blames solely on one administration since it's been building since before Bush.

Majority of the national debt began around 2001. When Bush started his only agenda during his 8 years in office, the War on Terrorism. Of course, supporting two wars is one of the biggest contributors of the debt. Oil prices rising has contributed alot also.

I'll admit, Obama hasn't done a whole lot to bring it down, yet anyway. I suppose he is doing the best he can for what he has inherited.

Things could always be better, but I think Obama is doing a good job. The economy definitely seems to be turning for the better in many ways. He also calmed down most of the panic in the markets.

WOW! I'm speechless.


Everyone, who has, so far put down Obama has recited something about the National Debt or spending. I would have to rate his performance as excellent. He's only been in office for 6 months and still has at least 3 and half years to go. Not to mention, what he has spent money on, IMHO, was money well spent. Obama has accomplished more in the last 6 months than Bush did in 8 years.

As far as intelligence goes, I'd have to say that Obama has probably forgotten more than Bush will ever know.

You can't say the same for the previous idiot that held office.

I agree Hackers. I just want to keep the heat on for healthcare. But actually, Obama is doing a good job there too. It's these so-called blue dog democratic representatives and senators in the back pocket of the insurance and drug companies that have me pissed off at the moment.

I'm going with poor. I once thought he meant good for us, but so far things are getting worse, and he and his party appear to not care about the middle class. The blame game and so called issue of inheritance needs to come to an end, he's president now, and rather than decreasing the deficit, he's increasing it, rather than cutting unemployment, he's raising it, he's planning to tax us on health, energy, and much more ...it's ridiculous.

I give up all hope, and I'm sad we voted in a guy that needs a TelePrompTer to speak, as president. Maybe we'll get lucky in 2012, and he'll retire early like Palin, and Hillary could run!! ...or maybe I'll just vote for the candidate that runs for the party of no just out of spite.

Whatever...
STEVE JOBS 2012!!! (maybe Bill Gates can be VP) Very Happy

Fox News, Bill O, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and so on...

...no, not really. The news gives me a headache, so all I depend on is the Wall Street Journal, some common sense and whatever people say at work, school, church or neighborhood (and the funny conservative or sorry I voted for Obama bumper stickers I see all over the place).

I'm also in the business of Technology/Defense, so that naturally makes me biased against any one that doesn't think investing in military technology results in better technology for all.
