Sometimes It Sucks to Be Boss

Tuesday, December 15, 2009, 22:17 EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

Today’s New York Times front page isn’t kind to President Barack Obama. Unemployment is up, cooperation from Pakistan is down, climate talks with China are dead, the Prez wants banks to lend more (as if forgetting what happened the last time the feds tried that kind of pressure), and that pesky freethinker Joe Lieberman is throwing a monkey wrench into ObamaCare.

But the news isn’t all bad. Obama recently told Oprah Winfrey that he grades his performance so far as a solid B+. And why not? It is quite an achievement to have the lowest approval rating of any first term President at this point in his term, and to be staking your political legacy on a boondoggle of a program gets less popular by the day.
