This is brilliant; the President gives himself an “incomplete” as a grade for his first term. Incomplete? Isn’t that the grade a kid gets when he slacks off and doesn’t turn in his assignments? Usually an “I” is given before the end of a term and is a warning for the kid to shape up and get his work turned in.
I don’t quite get how the President made that conclusion, nor what it means in his head, but following the conventional definition of an “incomplete”, I don’t hold out much hope for him to redeem himself before the end of this term. I think when he said that, shooting from the hip, he meant his job isn’t done and is hoping for another four years to complete what he’s started. Given the state of things today, he sure doesn’t deserve another four years to prove himself; I’m confident that in November he’ll get the grade he deserves from a large majority of voters; a resounding “F“.
And this just in; the DNC announced today that Barack’s convention speech will be held in a different venue tomorrow night. They are saying the move was prompted by the threat of thunderstorms predicted for Thursday night and concerns for safety in the 74,000 seat open-air Bank of America stadium. But given the slight chance of that (30%) it makes you wonder what the real motivation might be. Maybe the fear of a lightning strike is real, especially given the President’s tendency to stray from the truth, or maybe they’re more afraid of showing images of vast numbers of empty chairs. After all, like Mr. Eastwood showed us last week, there can be only one Empty Chair.
