National Urban League Gives Obama “Excellent” Rating, But 42% of Their Review is About His Failures


The National Urban League issued an “excellent” report card for President Obama’s eight years, but highlighted numerous and important “failures,” so many that they totaled 42 percent of its review.

“While we scored many of the administration’s achievements with our highest rating, ‘Superior,’ President Obama’s tenure as a whole had shortcomings due to some notable missed opportunities and outright failures, such as the economic development of urban centers, gun violence and the foreclosure rate and bank closure rate in communities of color and low-income neighborhoods. On these and other issues, we rated the Obama administration ‘Fair’ or ‘Poor,'” wrote Urban League President Marc H. Morial.

The 16-page report card reviewed eight areas of policy impacting urban areas and African Americans, and found that Obama’s success to failure rate at 57.5 percent to 42.5 percent.

Morial said Obama received the “second highest” overall grade of “excellent.”
