    I give him a D+.

    He has ignored the gay marriage issue, ignored don't ask don't tell, run up massive numbers in our deficit, has gone overseas and apologized for America's actions and has spoken out more harshly against Israel for building settlements in its own land than he has for Iran and North Korea testing new missiles. The stimulus bill has not kicked in yet, either. His money, his responsibility. He legalized stem cell research on embryos but forbid any embryos being destroyed for research.

    On the other hand, he has largely helped stabilize our economy, if only for now as the Autumn is the TRUE test of how good or bad a shape we're in, has begun to pull our forces out of Iraq, has doubled the number of troops in Afghanistan and has put a deadline on our involvement in Afghanistan.

    The only reason why Obama is sitting pretty right now is because the Republicans are in disarray and likely won't be able to mount an effective offense against Obama until 2012.

    Even though he got the opening up of a can of whoopass on the Somali pirates right, he still hasn't done enough right to get him past the "D" threshold.....No matter whose curve you use.

    I originally gave him a c- but that has dipped a bit down to a d, the stimulus will take a bit longer to kick in, that kind of thing never has overnight results, anyone who thought it did was fooling themselves. He has gone back on nsa spying and wiretapping calling it legal and ok for the safety of the US when he originally campaigned against it. he also is changing his mind and flip flopping on the torture issues, now saying it "harms " the troops and our country to show the detainee torture photos...sorry but damage already done by this shit being done in the first place, showing photos wont make it worse. The healthcare plan is turning into a joke and now he is facing even opposition from so called liberal dems on the closing of gitmo...his whole administration is collapsing around him and he has NO ONE to blame but himself.

    I'm shocked..... If I'm reading this correctly, most of these responses so far are from those who supported Obama but who see that he set the bar too high for himself. Perhaps the MSNBC poll was more accurate than the Gallup poll. Throw out the highly motivated "for" and "against" and it showed a truer picture somewhere in the middle.

    i'd give him about a D+
    he did it right in giving the commander in the field the disgression to shoot those Somali pirates

    all his apologizing will only embolden the terrorists to strike us again
