20 Other Historic B+’s Like Obama’s

As you may have heard, after one of the most disastrous first years of a presidency in the entire history of the United States, Barack Obama has evaluated his own performance and given himself a “good solid B-plus.” If the last year has been a B+, then what would a “C” entail? An asteroid destroying the Eastern seaboard? An alien attack? People eating each other to stay alive?

In any case, after hearing about Obama’s generous grading curve, the folks on Twitter had some other great events that also deserved B+’s. Enjoy!
