    So far, he's my choice and I can't think of anyone who would change my mind. Well, except for maybe Chris Christie.
    I would maybe vote for someone who's social views I disagree with a bit if I completely agree fiscally, but nothing would make me vote for a complete social conservative. I think I would feel sick coming out of the voting booth if I did that. It goes against all my principles.

    I could deal with fiscal liberals purely because having them means we're eventually going to default on our debt and become fiscally conservative whether we like it or not. This may actually be quicker, too.

    Now, I don't trust anonymous sources, so not going to say anything for sure yet, but lord I do hope she runs. We have not had a good group of humor candidates for either party since 2000, when the republicans had Keyes and Bauer both running.
    When I saw this Pat Paulsen came to mind immediately...LOL

    Patrick Layton "Pat" Paulsen (July 6, 1927 – April 24, 1997) was an American comedian and satirist notable for his roles on several of the Smothers Brothers TV shows, and for his campaigns for President of the United States in 1968, 1972, 1980, 1988, 1992, and 1996, which had primarily comedic rather than political objectives, although his campaigns generated some protest votes for him.

    Obama Is Our Smartest President?
    Posted on November 11, 2008 by FreedomsWings| 1 Comment
    Historian Michael Beschloss was interviewed Monday on Don Imus’ radio show and he made the claim that President-elect Obama’s IQ is off the charts and that he is the smartest president we have ever had. Here is the meat of the conversation:
    Historian Michael Beschloss: Yeah. Even aside from the fact of electing the first African American President and whatever one’s partisan views this is a guy whose IQ is off the charts — I mean you cannot say that he is anything but a very serious and capable leader and — you know — You and I have talked about this for years …
    Imus: Well. What is his IQ?
    Historian Michael Beschloss: … our system doesn’t allow those people to become President, those people meaning people THAT smart and THAT capable
    Imus: What is his IQ?
    Historian Michael Beschloss: Pardon?
    Imus: What is his IQ?
    Historian Michael Beschloss: Uh. I would say it’s probably – he’s probably the smartest guy ever to become President.

    If I really had my choice, I would pick somebody like bloomberg (if he wasn't a welfare whore) or david brooks (if he had a bit more of a forceful personality) and if they both weren't as pro-defense spending as they are. Also, they would need to completely reform the entitlement state. Yeah, but besides that, I'd love either of them (as much as I can any politician - hard to find one I completely agree with).

    I like me them nyc folks.

    We have to estimate many presidents' IQs. Even if Obama was in the lowest 25% of LSAT scorers who got into harvard (doubtful considering he graduated magna cum laude), he'd still have an IQ > 135.

    Ah, yes... the ol' change-the-subject trick. The Conservative two-step.

    "Speaking of IQ's..." Gimme a break.


    We were speaking of Bachmann's IQ -- that's the TOPIC -- do you have something to add?

    Obama's clearly very intelligent, but smartest overall? Awful claim.
    Smartest presidents within the last 50 years were Nixon and (yeah I was a bit surprised too) Carter. Some place Clinton up there, but I wouldn't put him above 140.

    I'm not concerned about Obama's IQ. He's highly intelligent in my opinion. It was the conversation about it that cracked me up. I heard the audio, but it seems to be scrubbed from the internet. Guess you had to be there.
