Pollster John Zogby updates our weekly Obama Report Card with a grade on the president's performance. Zogby uses his polling, expert analysis and interaction with major players to come up with a grade and some comments that capture how he sees the president's week ending.

John Zogby on Week: 102

"No runs, no hits, no errors this week. News that the drones in Afghanistan are working, while the drones on Capitol Hill are not. And the president is in Hawaii, while we are not. There is even more talk of some recovery in 2011 while people are still returning gifts and retail sales are better than the last few years. But we all await those unemployment numbers soon. With Hawaii's Diamondhead in the background, how can he get anything but a solid A?"

This week's grade: A

Last week's: A-
