Obama's Good, Solid B+

As Purple Avenger noted last night, Obama offered himself (apparently without being prompted) the grade of a "good, solid B+" for his performance in office so far.

Apparently where he went to school, grades aren't awarded to whether you succeed for fail, but according to whether you have "saved or created" additional opportunities for ad-hoc extra credit.

Or, perhaps, he's the world's most famous victim of the soft bigotry of low expectations.

Frank of IMAO offered this Tweet:

Tiger had rated his marriage so far a B+.

And has created a new discussion topic of "#bplus."

And I've been offering my own grades:

Titanic's maiden cruise? Good, solid B+.

Seth Brundel's ability to detect insects in a small enclosed space? Oh, I don't know, I'll say just short of an A-.

Death Star's thermal exhaust port engineering team? About an 87 out of 100, I'd say.


Hans Gruber's English-Tailored gravity-reversing levitation suit? Certainly above a B, but not quite an A.

I could also add:

Keith Olbermann's pre-match strategy in his Fight Against Death? A B on execution, but an additional half-mark for moxie.
