Inquiring minds won­der if there’s a “G” in the grad­ing reper­toire. And that does not stand for “good.” Poll­ster John Zogby has given Pres­i­dent Obama an “F” this week for the White House per­for­mance on the global stage, and the re­searcher has no im­mi­nent good news for the pres­i­dent.

“Some people have re­ally bad weeks. Brazil’s Pres­i­dent Dilma Rouss­eff got an ‘F’ af­ter the na­tion’s soc­cer team lost to Ger­many. But Pres­i­dent Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Is­rael and the Pales­tini­ans are at war again. The pres­i­dent should have vis­ited the U.S.Mex­i­can bor­der, where so many im­mi­grant chil­dren are in dan­ger and so many Amer­i­can cit­i­zens are wor­ried.”

He adds, “It just seems that even those who have been so hope­ful for this pres­i­dent are fi­nally just giv­ing up. Things just ap­pear to be out of con­trol — at least out of his con­trol. A very bad week. The grade is F.”
