What do you think about President Obama?
December 11, 2011 3:41pm CST
I think he's an okay president, I didn't see anything improve in the United States when he became president. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give him a 7. Do you think he's a good president, what would you rate him?

I think that Pres. Obama is adequate for this time and place. People who disagree with the president’s politics of course would not like him. With what he inherited from the Bush administration I would have to give him a 7 or 8 for just keeping the economy from sinking into that money pit of a blackhole. I must agree with WakeUpKitty Pres. Obama doesn’t really has the so-called black experience he never seen true racism or lived in the “Jim Crow Era of the south.”

He could be much better, but you know what, I think that anyone who had gotten elected President was just doomed to not doing that well. The economy was rather in a hole, due to years of reckless decisions, not just Bush, not just Clinton, but for generations. Obama might not have been cut out to be President, but even the most qualified candidate is going to be fit. I really do not have any idea how history will judge Barack Obama. I think that with every president, every leader in general, there will be both good and bad. He just had to be the guy who got elected when the bottom had fallen out and he'll always be associated with that. My rating on him is inconclusive, as his first term is not over and the jury is still out on whether he'll get a second.
