    The word retard has roots in either the French "tard" or the Spanish "tarde". The word means "late". "Retarder" in French or "Retardar" in Spanish means to delay. Somebody who delays is a retard.
    What a complete load of crap. You know he didn't mean "to delay." Playing these word games only makes you look even less mature.

    True enough.



    You're letting your partisanship color your judgement. Obama is one of the most intelligent Presidents we ever had. Clinton too! I can't think of a Repub out there to challenge either in the smarts dept.

    Gingrich could, for sure.

    Misterman, with all due respect. I could give you the address to my house and you still wouldn't get me. Seriously. Calm down and don't play internet e-thug. You do not want to.

    He came off as immature and whiny, as usual.


    You're missing the point regarding intelligence - it doesn't count for squat when you don't know how to get things done! So far, he's shown that he has no clue how to take an idea and see that through to execution.


    Also, simply being more educated doesn't necessarily make you wiser.


    I've mentioned before - the top people at successful organizations are rarely the most intelligent.


    Clinton proved to be politically savvy, particularly after he had is a$$ handed to him in his first 2 years in office. I've never been particularly impressed by his supposed intelligence though.


    Remember, Jimmy Carter was highly intelligent also.

    National Review Online weighs in:


    Is Everybody a Victim Now? [Mark Krikorian]

    I think Governor Palin and Professor Arkes et al. are reading too much into Rahm Emanuel's "f***ing retarded" outburst. B]His use of "retarded" has no more connection to people with Down Syndrome and other forms of retardation than his constant use of the F word refers to the act of coitus. "Moron," imbecile," and "idiot" used to be terms used by psychology to denote different gradations of retardation, but now we just use them as epithets, and that's obviously how he was using "retarded." Emanuel is a vulgar jerk, but can't conservatives, at least, refrain from grievance-mongering and hair-trigger offense-taking? I realize pouncing on him is payback for all the stuff the Left does to us, but, really, someone has got to be a grown-up in this country, and conservatives are the only candidates left.

    Is Everybody a Victim Now? - Mark Krikorian - The Corner on National Review Online

    My answer: No, because the ideology of the modern right thrives on victimology and fear.
