High marks for what? His errors?
100 Days 100 Errors
In all seriousness, he's done some things right. But high marks? What has worked so far? His Economic plan. Nope. His plan to save the banks? Nope. His plan to save the auto companies? Nope. His healthcare plan. Nope. Transparent Administration? Nope. Great Cabinet appointments and no lobbyists? Nope. Gitmo closed? Nope.
I would say so far his Iraq and Pakistan policies are really strong. His handling of the Pirate situation was spot on, among other things.
So please, be cautious of this "high marks" for at least a little while. Oh, and bells should be going off in your head when you read things about Obama coming from MSNBC.

I'm having trouble understanding why an increase in the number of people who consider Obama a liberal is a "cautionary number."
Contrary to what others have just said about Republicans, it has nothing to do with that. It's a "cautionary number" because he ran and won as a "centralist," not a liberal. Remember when Hannity and Fox and the right were yelling about his church, wife's rantings, Ayers, and all those other hard core liberal ideas that they claimed he followed, well the voting public for the most part didn't believe it.
Now that they see him buying up the banks, automakers, and putting in plans to take over private health care among many other hard left, if not socialist ideas, they are seeing him for what he is, a high tax, high spend "liberal." That will undoubtedly lower his positive ratings with the moderate crowd out there, and we all know, it's the moderates that elect the candidates. Moving left will convert more moderates away from him. It's that simple.
