Hayes: Too early to give an economy grade

(CNN) - I give President Obama an 'incomplete' on his handling of the economy. We haven't seen any of the effects of his stimulus plan yet, and whatever positive upticks we have seen can probably be attributed more to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

    President Obama definitely deserves an A+. Report Card. He has done very well considering the mess he inherited.

    There seams to be very few people who are not admitting the fact we could be in the largest depression ever in history. Instead he has pulled us back & still moving forward. The last time this happened there were soup lines & other tragedies from that depression & this lasted for years. Now they are trying to work him over for not moving beyond this by the end of the year.

    We spent 8 years with a flawed & failing ship of state with the vice president running the country as if it was a step child of the oil Cartel.

    I give the president a grade of A+ for being a good president & AAA for fixing the mess left by president Bush.

    Helen, Obama continued the same policies the Bush administration started in the last few months of his presidency. The economy didn't start going downhill until after the dems took control of congress.

    -6.1% GDP growth year to year is not positive news that the end is near.

    Wake up and smell the obvious. A grade for Obama on this subject is minimum 18 months away.

  9. President Obama could walk on water and the Party of NO would still complain that he left footprints!

    Uh, didn't the GDP drop -6.8% during the shrubs last quarter as President?

    6.2 million Americans laidoff since Obama became president and its too early to grade? Can we at least say Obama has inspired economic recovery??
