“I won’t be able to watch it because I work second shift. I’d say an A because he’d doing a lot for the people, a lot for the country, so I will give him an A.”

Ron Smith

“I will probably watch the State of the Union Address.  It’s hard to rate or grade Obama because he has had such a hard time with the Congress and other things.  Most people might grade him harshly because they feel as a Black president, he has not done much for Black people but they have to realize it’s about everybody, so I’d give him a B plus.” 

Edna Ester

“I would be able to watch the State of the Union Address because I work nights. I say Obama is a ten all the time because he is smart.  He’s a smart guy.  He’s intelligent and he’s fair.”

Willie Knox

“I give Obama 100 because he is doing what he is supposed to do and other people are fighting him, but he’s doing what he is supposed to do.”

Jaihoric Lang

“I would rate Obama as a president as a nine for right now because nobody is perfect.  I would definitely give him a nine for right now.” 

Sy Bounds

“I don’t know how to grade that brother.  I think he is highly capability, and he probably deserves a ten for what he has been able to do and how he has managed to stay in there, but there is so much he hasn’t done.  There is a lot of stuff he is doing that is not in the interest of people of color, so I’m not going to give him a grade.”
