Obama Gives Himself a "Good Solid B-Plus" For His First Year

Some people are saying that Obama giving himself a B+ is hubris. I see it as more of the best non-dodge answer he could really have given. If he can not give himself an A because he has not accomplished everything he wanted, and it has not been smooth sailing. If he gives himself less then a B then it would be an admission of failure and ineffectiveness. So he splits the difference. I think it is probobly the best answer he could have given besides just avoiding the question; or more accurately, saying it is for the American people to grade him.

"President Barack Obama, in an interview that aired Sunday, gave himself "a good solid B-plus" grade for his first year in office.

Speaking with fellow Chicagoan Oprah Winfrey, the president claimed progress on economic and international fronts.

Obama said the only thing that stands in the way of giving himself a better grade is the fact that some elements of his agenda — health care reform and putting more Americans to work — remain undone.
