Obama can't receive a grade for his performance, because he did nothing to prevent it, or to even deter it. Coming out several days after the fact to make carefully rehearsed speech, while taking no responsibility, with no apparent intent to hold himself or anyone else accountable, is not leadership.
Barack Obama is just as at fault for the Christmas Day, attempted bombing as George Bush was for the events of September 11, 2001. The only difference is that in the failed Christmas Day bombing attempt, passengers helped secure the situation, just as above the field in Pennsylvania. Fortunately, this outcome was much better for the innocent passengers on the plane, this time.
The reason I can say Obama is as much to blame for this as Bush for the World Trade Center collapse, is because we are hearing the exact same excuses that we heard after September 11, 2001. The Obama administration is saying the same things the Bush Administration said. For example; "The signs were there, but no one connected the dots". If anything Obama is more to blame, because apparently the lessons learned after September 11, 2001 by President Bush, and his administration, have been forgotten and/or ignored by Obama and his administration.

Obama's appointment, Napalotina, gets an F for claiming everything worked the way it should.
And Obama did pathetic in is response to the bombing attempt. He tried to act like it was a lone nut and in general, he tried to minimize the whole thing.
Now, he gets an A for the speech he made on the 3rd day, but that speech was 3 days late.
So I don't know how I woudl grade him.

Incomplete means many things and could also be taken as an acknowledgment that he hasn't accomplished much at all in his first 18 months. It isn't encouraging and I don't think I could rate his performance adequately because he just doesn't seem that committed to serving all Americans.

What did Bush get for 9-11? He got an intelligence report that predicted the attack and instead of reading it he went on vacation for the whole month before the attack. Seriously, what grade do you give Bush for the 3000 who died because he was busy doing photo ops and playing computer games down in Texas?
It was NOT on the US end that the terrorist got on the plane, the fault was the inspectors in Amsterdam who let a guy on with 1) a one way ticket, 2) paid for it in cash, 3) NO LUGGAGE: 3 for 3 on signs of a terrorist. Blame the folks in Amsterdam, they let the guy on the plane.

Lol, he had nothing to do with that AT ALL. The guy boarded the plain in Amsterdam, that is an international country people, Obama can't control that. The dutch should have caught that guy, it's not Obama's job to visit every airport for every flight and personally search everyone.

So now debacles are beneficial so he gets graded on them? He gets an F as usual.

A better grade than baby bush got for 911 on his watch.
Baby bush was in office for 8 months prior to 911 ... he took 2 vacations of 2 weeks ea. in that 8 month period.
