This is just a short note because I recently ran across this poll from MSNBC asking the public to give President Obama a grade –naturally, on the occasion that he will have been one hundred days in office on Thursday, 30 April.
Click here to go answer the poll and look at the results and then tell me, if you would,
1. Were you surprised by the results?
2. If so, do you agree with the extremes or find yourself somewhere in the middle?
3. If not I'd love to hear your rationale.
(In the spirit of full disclosure, I will tell you I've awarded him a grade of C– neither absolutely wonderful nor thoroughly disastrous)
I must say that in the wake of an election where so many people got involved in politics and were so motivated to get to the polls, I find it a little surprising myself that discourse about pressing issues has dwindled to a small tap-tap-tapping like a faucet trickle.
