    He has never released his grades so we really don't know. We do know that he is very articulate when he reads from his teleprompters. What's intriguing and not related to the article is that employment has been hovering around 10 percent for about a year now and this is not even phasing him. Most presidents would be freaked out about this.

    The point is many on the right feel he has not done a good job, and is not a Great statesmen. More of a childish whinny jerk.

    That first paragraph is pure partisanship.

    You are basing this on what? He gets along well with other world leaders. Bush on the other hand was basically loathed. He gave Angela Merkle a backrub during a meeting of heads of state. He wore a cowboy hat and boots. He disrespected Tony Blair on a live mike. Gosh..he was hated world wide. Even by people who normally like America. In Thailand I saw a t-shirt that had him and Osama Bin Laden listed as the "Twin Terrors".

    The "world" gave Obama a Nobel Prize and he's basically loved. The "world" gave Bush the finger. (Although in some parts of Africa he was loved for his efforts on AIDS, and in the Balkans..but heck..that was because of Clinton).

    So really..what do you base this whole "statesmen" thing on?

    Yeppers..Harvard and Columbia are known for graduating just about everyone. In fact..recently there was an investigation into allegations they just gave away diplomas like pancakes to people that just showed up!

    Sure 'nuff.

    lol he gets along well with them eh. is that all it takes to be a great statesmen really?

    Read the article man. It is peppered with partisan assessments of the man. It is a piece designed to defend him.

    So I found it funny the Guy who posted it thought he would call it a NON partisan look at Obama.
