Obama Gives Himself a “B” … Barack Obama Hits New Low in Rasmussen Poll, Only 44% Approval Rating


Talk about setting the bar low?

I guess this is the reason why students should not given themselves grades on their own. Barack Obama gave himself a “B” for his first months in office. A “B”, the President would have been better off stating that his time in office was more like T-ball and no one was keeping score.


US President Barack Obama, in remarks aired late Sunday, awarded himself a B plus for his first 11 months in office, stressing in an interview with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey that there was still much to be done.

“A good solid B plus,” Obama said during an hour-long, intimate soft-focus ABC network Christmas at the White House special, when Winfrey asked what grade he would give himself.

As the Gateway Pundit states, Obama has dropped 48 points in his approval index in less than one year and that is grounds for a “B”. Mmm, mmm, mmm … Barack Hussein Obama.

President Barack Obama keeps setting records. This time he hits an all-time new low in the Daily Rasmussen poll for job approval. Only 44% of voters now approve of the job that Obama is doing for America. What might be even more surprising, or worrisome for Obama is that only 72% and 77% of Democrats and Liberals, respectively approve of The One’s job performance. Hardly a ringing endorsement.

Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That’s the lowest level yet measured for this president. Previously, his overall approval rating had fallen to 45% twice, once in early September and once in late November.

Fifty-five percent (55%) now disapprove.

Seventy-two percent (72%) of Democrats now offer their approval while 80% of Republicans disapprove. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, just 36% approve.

Seventy-seven percent (77%) of liberals approve while 76% of conservatives disapprove. The bad news for the President is that there are a lot more conservatives in the country than liberals. However, he gets a bit of a boost because 57% of moderate voters still offer their approval.

See the downward spiral trends.

Meanwhile, the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll has Obama at a -18, which represents the 26th polling day in a row that Obama has had a double digit negative number.

      I guess he grades on a curve…44% = B+

      Small wonder our educational system is in disarray.

      B for biotch.

      I guess I’m a dreamer like TheOldWorld, but I can actually visualize a Sarah Palin/John Bolton ticket.

      I’d say that is an A+, without the benefit of a grading curve!

    4. TheOldWorld on December 16th, 2009 2:42 am

      I would have thought of myself as an optimistic cynic. ;-)

      Actually, part of me would really be happy if you’d get that. I love to tell people “I told you so” when they see what a mess they have created for themselves.

      That’s why I had a good humoured laugh about Bush “winning” his first election. It promised from the beginning that this would be fun to watch. But then it became clear that in this position, one idiot can do a lot of harm to the world. So, regrettably, I have an interest in you getting someone really good.

      Go for Palin if you want, I enjoy a good show. But expect to pay the bills for that in the next term as Obama, you and the rest of the world are currently paying Bush’s.
      SM: Sorry Old World,

      This post is about what an epic failure Barack Obama is and his denial . This clown actually thinks he is doing a good job. Even people in his own party do not think so. The audacity of grading.

      A “B”. Yeah right! A “D” and possible an “F” is in order.

      Unbelievable how arrogant this guy is…could you imagine the left liberal pukes if George Bush came out and gave himself a grade?

      He should have said “Incomplete” or nothing at all.

      What has he accomplished?

      It’s funny they talk how the banks are stable, etc…but do you know who was in charge of the first half of the TARP that went to the banks to stablize them? That’s right..GWB!

      But will Obama give him the slightest bit of credit? Nope..

      Another thing, he blasts these banks and tells them to lend, but there are so many restrictions which are getting harder by the day, that the banks don’t want to lend AGAIN to people who can’t pay back loans and FAIL a stress test; which then allows the govn’t to take control of you. It’s a catch-22! Obama is trying to set them up!

      B my a$$!

    6. Left Wondering on December 16th, 2009 9:16 am

      He should have said “present” instead.

    7. Scott on December 16th, 2009 9:39 am

      LOL…TheOldWorld using the “blame Bush” mantra. Why don’t you do some real research to find the problem that started this all? The housing market which was blown to pieces by the practices of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Do some research to the ties these guys had with said banks!

      There is a reason why Obama’s numbers are falling like Tiger’s popularity, because WE are sick and tired of hearing the Bush BS. They want action and he hasn’t not accomplished SQUAT!

      This Obama adminstration is a fun show to watch as his experience and leftist ways are on display.

      Every one of his policies thus far have failed, STIMULUS, CLUNKERS, you name it.

      Take your mouth off Obama’s **** for a minute and you might find the reality that you are living in… idiot!

      anyone who helped put obama in office will be responsible for the downfall of this country. so when the crying starts, as it already has old world, we will tell you “i told you so” to make you feel better.
      all your propaganda you are copying and posting here is complete nonsense. you evidently have an obama teleprompter in your cave.

    9. super dave on December 16th, 2009 10:06 am

      of course this means that Bush receives an A+ for all that he has accomplished compared to obama’s ten months of total, complete failure and adolescent praise of himself.
      ask the black caucus for an obama grade today and see what you get !
      since he has not handed them money and jobs, fuel for their automobiles, and mortgage payments, they are just about ripe for a revolt.

      We all know what the B stands for….!!!!!!!!!!

    13. Dolf on December 22nd, 2009 6:59 am

      Dave…what did Bush accomplish?
      SM: Dolf, stick to the point of the post … dude, GWB is not President any more … it is now Barack Hussein Obama and the buck stops with him.

      This is about the Obamamessiah and his Presidency. Do not change the subject. The fact of the matter is that BHO is a disaster of biblical proportions.

      This clown cannot be neutered and thrown out of office fast enough. Neutered = losing the House and Senate. After 2010 Obama will truly be a LAME, lame duck President. By 2010 Obama might be at 40% or lower approval rating.

      What has Obama done to get a B+? Unless you think destroying America is a worthy goal.

    14. Caramoan on December 23rd, 2009 4:57 am

      Barack Obama is not only a charismatic president but he is a very intelligent and smart person too. I congratulate him for winning a Nobel Peace Prize.
      SM: So what? All that and a bad of chips does not qualify him for the Nobel Peace Prize nor does it stop him from being the worst President the United States has ever seen.

      Obama is still a joke and over his socialist, community organizing head.
