Los Angeles, California - Barack Obama's performance in the polls with the American people has bee phenomenal. Never before in the history of presidential-elect polling has a future commander and chief done so well before actually taking the oath of office. However, it appears that there is a fly in the ointment after all.
"He's only doing so well in the polls because the country is such bad shape," claims John Miller, a Middle School teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District, one of the largest in the nation. "Americans are compensating for that by grading his performance on a curve. I do it all the time with my 7th graders."
Miller says that if you factor in the following, you will understand what he is talking about:
"If you take into account that Obama is following on the heels of the most unpopular President in the recorded history of the United States," says Miller. "Throw in one unnecessary war he started, the shredding of Constitution and Bill of Rights, as he did. And add statements that he used to describe the current state of the economy, which is collapsing, as unprecedented or, using his own words, 'greater than The Great Depression', you cannot help but grade a sharp guy like Obama on a curve. I know I would, if he were a student in my classroom, and I'd sit Bush in the coroner, facing the wall wearing a cone shaped hat that read, 'Dunce."
