    Not to say that IQ's are everything, but for people doubting his intelligence, compare his IQ to Bush.
    How I wish we had Clinton again for president. I would give him all the Monica Lewinsky's of the world.

    I wouldn't doubt it. I definitely think he's intelligent. But he's just not making all the right moves.

    I agree with Jake. Anyone who thinks Obama isn't very intelligent is deluding themselves. I think Obama's central problem is that he genuinely wanted to get beyond partisan politics and hasn't (yet) realized that the Republicans aren't interested.

    I once worked for a Gov't Dept Head with a juris doctorate from Harvard and an civil engineering degree from M.I.T.



    Yet, for common sense, he was a lost ball in high weeds.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Or as we used to say "Gary couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the directions were written on the sole."icon_wink.gif

    I'll take a common-sense-smart employee any day over one educated-beyond-his-abilities.

    Its becoming apparent to me, that no matter the IQ of a president, whether Democrat or Republican, we the public are to large degree stuck with what the big money/corporate puppet masters push the presidents into doing for them. We have up front social/philosophy differences in the two parties, but their not much more than fronts. Look at how Obama flipped his "core principles" for his self defeating "bipartisanship", over and over again he's dropped the ball for that wishful dream and thereby weakened what he could have gotten done. Yes he's smarter than the average, but big money interests have pretty well blunted his effectiveness because he let it happen. IQ isn't worth a damn thing put up against the money that controls outcomes.

    Obama is extremely intelligent
    That was never in question

    But how he uses that intelligence is what I am looking for

    When there is partisan warfare being played
    you can't think that compromise is going to win the day
    It doesn't work that way

    The more intelligent a person is, the easier it will be for them to do harm.
    Intelligence =/= Nice

    Then again, Bush was a fucking moron and still fucked up the whole world.

    This is the truth... There are special interest representing money, social agencies and various organizations who seem to be heard over any honest group of voters. What is left is to answer the question of how to fix this in a two party state where each party is beholden to various special interest groups...
