Grade Inflation

I didn't see this interview because I don't like either one of the two O's, Oprah or Obama, enough to be able to watch. At the very beginning, The Won is asked what grade he would give himself for the past year: "A good solid B+," he says, with no hesitation or qualification. Really? For what, exactly?

"We have inherited the biggest set of challenges of any president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt," says Obama.

I have never in my lifetime heard one president whine as much as this one does about what he "inherited" from the past administration. Hey, Champ, you didn't "inherit" anything. You were elected to do a job, just like every other president. And so far you've made a damn mess of it.

Oprah asks him why just a B+? What could he have done better? His answer: "If health care gets signed, we tip into A-." And I have no doubt he's being absolutely sincere about that.

Gateway Pundit writes, "A B+ for tripling the deficit and nearly doubling unemployment in one year. What would an 'F' look like?" His grade can be a B+ only if his goal was to destroy the U.S. economy.

Tiger Woods just gave himself an A- for first 5 years of marriage.
