    What are THE MAIN reasons why President Obama should be rated an F minus for his

    sociocultural, sociopolitical, and socioeconomic policies?

    It doesn't matter which party is in office. Both are throwing poison but from different directions. So Obama walks on egg shells. Selling dependency, and afraid to stand up to injustice. Which leads to a modern form of enslavement for some. On the the other hand, the Republican's agenda is massive economic enslavement with little or no assistance for expansion. It's funny how everybody forgets the horrible shape the country was in before Obama. Massive unemployment, gas at almost $5.00 a gallon, war with Iraq, major corporations about to go under only rescued by bailouts. Granted Obama is not perfect, but would you want to go back to the way things were before he took office? Both are destructive, but the Republicans move at a much faster pace. Give them eight more years and you would have been stepping over bodies just to get to the grocery store.

      It's funny how everybody forgets the horrible shape the country was in before Obama.  Can't believe the party that shut down the government less than a year ago now has the largest majority in congress in 50 years.  We have such short memories.

    I think an F- is an over-exaggeration. Job growth is slow, but there have still been gains, and the deficit is still big, but at least its shrinking. Many who voted for him may have been disillusioned, but even then they would probably still give him something around a C. Those who consider him a total failure are giving too much credibility to the vitriol and negativity slung by his detractors.

    I agree with Sri T, M. T. Dremer, and Kathleen Cochran about the "short term" memory a lot of people have when it comes to where we are today versus the state of the country in January 2009! I'm old enough to remember the Jimmy Carter days of odd/even gas lines, double digit loan interest rates, and the Iranian Hostage Crisis, Panama Canal Treaties..etc
    Realistically I can't possibly see how anyone can realistically give Obama an (F-) unless they simply personally dislike the man or his (party's agenda).
    While he's far from being a perfect president if there is such a thing. No one can deny the fact that (things have improved) dramatically from the days of the stock market crash, record foreclosures, national unemployment of 10%, the continuing hunt for Osama Bin Laden, and no end in sight for two very expensive wars which have cost us trillions in debt!
    I believe when history looks back on Obama's tenure it will record that he was by far not the worst president who ever held office. Martin Van Buren, Herbert Hoover, or William McKinley will still be among those who are considered worse presidents than Obama.
    Anyone who thinks where we are as nation in 2015 is worse then where we were at the end of 2008 and early 2009 has "selective memory" to say the least. Whether one hates the guy or his party's agenda it's not "logically" possible to give him a (F-). Nevertheless most people go by how they (feel) about someone. They'd rather strip the executive powers away from the office of president than have Obama utilize it.
    He's being personally attacked for what (his party) stands for. Anyone who believes a president Joe Bidden or Hilary Clinton is going to repeal Obamacare, not fight for a raise in minimum wages, restructure student loan debt, or push for immigration reform is sadly mistaken. In 2016 this nation will have a chance to decide which political party agenda they want to stick with. It's going to be interesting!

    I personally can't wait to see Obama, along with Al Sharpton and Eric Holder, booted from privileged positions of power in our country.

    1. Obama seem to think the solution to every economic problem is to throw more money at it (or print more, if there is none available).

    2. Obama is foolishly trying to provoke Russia--asking for a war that could prove disastrous for America.

    3. I was going to make #3 about Obama's foreign policy, but then I was like, "WHAT foreign policy?"

    4. Obama seems to be in serious denial about the persistent threat that non-Westernied, non-watered down Islam is posing to the safety of America and all other non-Muslim countries.

    5. Obama is turning a blind eye to the atrocities of ISIS.

    6. Al Sharpton and Eric Holder are endangering the lives of cops (white and minority alike) and increasing violent crime statistics, what with Holder's anti-police measures and Sharpton dumping gasoline on the fire that is quickly becoming a race war.

    7. Obama is not only allowing, but ENCOURAGING Holder and Sharpton to act so divisively and foolishly.

    8. Obama is making our country's immigration laws into a joke.

    I could keep going and going on this, but I'm sure you have better things do with your time than read the full list...

    Here's hoping that 2016 brings about REAL change (not the phony "Obama brand") that America needs.

      I couldn't agree with you more. Obama, Holder and Sharpton have shamelessly and hypocritically played the race card whenever they've had a chance. They've held to their liberal dogma despite facts, juries and common sense opposing them.

      Thanks, wba108. It bugs me so much to see these men representing "ONE nation, under God", and yet they're using every tactic in their arsenal to divide blacks against white, the wealthy against everyone else, citizens against cops...it's disgraceful.

      Obama is the lesser of two evils. Wait until the Republicans get started with their agenda again. Then the whole country will be begging for mercy again like they did with the near depression before Obama.

      "Obama is turning a blind eye to the atrocities of ISIS." Aren't we bombing them? "Obama seem to think the solution to every economic problem is to throw more money at it" Isn't it a party agenda? Both parties once supported a path to citizenship
