The Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman has looked over test scores and class participation, and decided to fail President Barack Obama for his handling of the Middle East in his first year in office: “Since there are no prospects of talks on the horizon, and in many ways what their efforts wrought was a wasted year without any negotiations, I believe the administration deserves an ‘F’ for failure to deliver on results,” Foxman said. Foxman in particular faulted Obama for raising expectations so high (something Obama himself has said he regrets doing) and for emphasizing Israel’s settlement policy too much. On the other hand, Foxman did give the president an ‘A’ for effort. (That’s not our punch-line. He really said he did.)
