Obama gives himself a 'B+' in Oprah interview

What a sanctimonious twit.

With 10% unemployment, an out of control deficit, a boondoggle of a stim bill, a radical attempt to "reform" health care, a continued belief in global warming despite evidence that refutes it, and a weak, ineffective foreign policy, Barack Obama declared on the upcoming Christmas special with Oprah Winfrey that he deserves a "B+" for his presidency so far.

What planet does this guy live on?

David Hinckley of the New York Daily News:

On what was billed as Oprah's "White House Christmas Special," Obama credited his administration with getting the economy on track, winding down the Iraq war and making the right call for a temporary surge in Afghanistan.He also said America has "reset" its prestige in the world and made progress toward halting development of nuclear weapons in Iran and North Korea.

Passage of health care reform would boost his grade to an A-, he said. Until Americans get back to work, he said, "I can't give myself the grade I'd like."

The only member of the Administration who might deserve a high grade is the dog Bo:

Michelle Obama discussed the White House's 390-pound gingerbread house and showed Winfrey how First Dog Bo has been trained to give high-fives.

Way to go, Bo! Maybe the president should assign you to solving the unemployment crisis. You seem to be the only one in the White House who has proven that you can learn something new.
