THE WHITE HOUSE GRADE SLIPS TO ‘F’
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.”
