“On average, they gave the president a grade of 59 out of 100, and although there was a broad range of marks, 42% of respondents rated Mr. Obama below 60. Mr. Geithner received an average grade of 51.”
My favorite line, and the explanation for our current president is this:
“The economists’ assessment stands in stark contrast with Mr. Obama’s popularity with the public, with a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC poll giving him a 60% approval rating.”
The criticism boils down to the size of the “stimulus” package and whether it’s necessary and the speed with which Obama is bailing out the banks.
My main criticism, and the real danger I see, is his budget. I’m preparing a post about it that will scare the crap out of you. After I heard this information, I was so mad I couldn’t feel my legs for 30 minutes.
