B+ Grade

US President Barack Obama told talk-show-host Oprah Winfrey last night that he feels he deserves a “good, solid B+” for his first 11 months in office.

US President Barack Obama told talk-show-host Oprah Winfrey last night that he feels he deserves a “good, solid B+” for his first 11 months in office. “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.’ Oprah interviewed the President and First Lady Michelle Obama separately and together on the ABC special.”
