He really is an idiot.

In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, President Barack Obama gives the United States an “incomplete” grade. Obama’s grade is based on how women are treated in America.
“I think the way I’d grade the United States right now is incomplete,” says Obama. “There are more opportunities for women than ever before. I think women excelling in school is now translating into greater opportunities in their professional lives. Some of the steps that we’ve taken have helped to open up additional access, but I’m not going to be satisfied until every young person who is willing to work hard and take responsibility can fulfill their dreams. I think this campaign is going to be so important because it really presents two fundamentally different visions about how we expand opportunity for all people.”
Obama was asked about this because, according to the interviewer, “Back in 2008 [he] told Glamour that your mother once said, and I’ll quote, ‘the best indicator of whether a country does well is how it treats its girls and its women.’”
