BOSTON — President Barack Obama did his best to convince the American public of his vision going forward. You gave him ... mixed grades. Here's the rundown as of Jan. 26, 5:30 p.m.
A 66.7% - B 15.2% - C 3.9% - D 4.8% - F 9.5%
And some extra calls and comments:
An A from East Falmouth: "It was positive, hit on most important issues, very little bashing of other side, progressive, spoke to problems with divided Congress and country."
A from Somerville: "Energizing; optimistic; combined immediate and longer-term goals for growth."
From Boston, B: "Strong words and good delivery, but lofty ideas for problems 3 years old; passing buck to Congress."
Another B from Boston: "Where was this forceful Obama the last three years. Yet the fed. should get out of education and let the states decide what is needed."
C: "Too many hollow promises, more government involvement in our lives."
From Brewster, F: "Repeat of former State of the Union address speeches. All he can do and has done is talk!"
