Economists grade Obama: 59

10 posts in this topic

While I don't really agree with recovery action that Obama decided on in full, there is really no way to grade something that really just got started.

They just did. And they gave him a 59 out of a 100, which is probably a higher average than most of the people who voted for him got in school.

It doesn't change the fact that economists say he sucks.

I agree with engine. Its way to early. And they polled 49, not exactly a healthy sample of economist. Heck, I think Wake Forest University has nearly that many economist all by itself.

It's 9 percent higher then I would expect it to be, no matter what happens.

Hold it now, easy Meat. Obama can't even fill key positions in his administration. He only took office in January. By the end of his 4 year term, you would have to think that "the smoothest transition in the last two decades" should be half way complete right?:D Then we can pass judgement on Barry.

According to the White House Transition Project, which tracks appointments, there are some 1,200 government jobs that require Senate confirmation about 360 of which are considered policy jobs. Only about 70 of those jobs have been filled so far.

Prominent Wall Street lawyer H. Rodgin Cohen has withdrawn from consideration to become deputy U.S. Treasury Secretary, Democratic sources said on Thursday, dealing another setback to the department's efforts to fill critical positions.

    • maybe but I doubt it would be the same...given Putin actually hates Hillary.  So there could be some money junk worth looking into but not on the Trump scale and not. 
    • With the depth of this draft, I have no problems going after more picks.  I am of leery of moving up to get guys when you end up having to sell the farm.  I know Gettleman loves to say he'd rather have quarter than two dimes, so I think that's going to be a part of this draft. Then again, if we can get two impact players, a couple of contributors, can we call this a failure?  Only time will tell.  According to the draftniks like Mayock (who'se up for the Redskins job) say you can get a 2nd round pass rusher in prior years drafts in the 4th.  Seems to say to me that moving up may not have as much value as we think.
    • But Russians are the enemy, or at least 100 days ago. Why should that change so much?  Anything to undermine the President at the time. To bad racism can't be used as a defense.
