How well do you think US President Barack Obama has done so far in his first term as President? Our report card gives him a passing grade but let us look into his actions to date.
Maybe he didn't handle the crisis well that was passed on courtesy of George "W" Bush but one has to wonder what else he could do. Maybe the bailouts were too generous but these were already put in motion by the last President. I would have to say overall he did a good job except for the bailout of AIG. AIG cashed in money like it was nobody's business.
The Iraq War was fuelled by mysterious weapons of mass destruction which later were revealed that not only did they not exist but US intelligence had no real leads that they existed. This means the war was a fraud on many levels. Given that the war was done illegally Obama should have pulled out. Instead he has done nothing about it probably because he is afraid of having the US population against him. Nobody knows what the US is in Iraq for unless it's oil money. Let the country spend trillions of dollars while in their own backyard people are losing their houses and jobs. Obama could be doing more.
