    In conclusion, some people can't handle a black man in the white house.

    Re: Are you smarter than The Obama?

    This thread is rediculous. I knew someone "very conservative" started this post from the moment I read it. All this threads intentions are directed at another Obama bashing political feud. Obama is obviously smarter than anyone on this forum or else we would all be former United States Presidents.

    If you want to question actual policies or polling on how he/she would handle a political issue differently then Obama, that would be considered respectable, but as to question the intelligence of the President of the United States to fuel another anti-Obama hate thread is pretty childish and deserves little attention from actual adults.

    This is why i hardly vote Republican. The dis-respect, hate, question of legitimacy, question of intelligence issues that spew out of GOP supporters only push's me away more. I may disagree with Republican presidents at times, but I still respect them as my president. Its a real shame the way some people are willing to disgrace a president these days. Shame on America for what we are becoming.

    I dont like using the word racist unless its really intended, I do believe it gets thrown around alot by democrats to push away credible arguements, but after reading many posts around this political forum I am beginning to think racism is still VERY alive. I understand not all people are racists...but quite a few people I believe HATE obama simply because he is a black man which has become more successful compared to some insecure white people around here could possibly dream of. The sad part is hes not that black.

    President Obama would have to rate as one of the smartest people I have ever known, he was at least smart enough to surround his self with people who knew how to run a campaign, a smart person knows that they do not have to know every thing they just have to know where to get the knowledge they need to make the best decision

    In my not so humble opinion President Obama has one glaring weakness he is way to willing to compromise, the republicans have seen this and use it to thier advantage, I hope after he takes both houses back and is re-elected in 2012 he becomes less willing to compromise with the party on NO

    I am sure that there are some people who don't like a black being in office but I am sure that was more than balanced out by people who voted for Obama merely because he is black

    and to claim opposition to him has as a major factor, his skin color is without much merit. furthermore many of those who oppose Obama support Herman Caine or love
    quoting Dr Walter Williams. You seem to think that if he was white, people like me who despise welfare socialism and expanding government would embrace this man.

    what many people reject are the specious claims that Obama is the brightest president to every occupy the Oval office when there are people who had stronger academic records (Bush I was in the top three of his class at Yale, Nixon at Duke Law, and Clinton a Rhodes Scholar) or far greater accomplishments in their lives before they became President (Bush I again comes to mind)

    well there we have it. If EarlzP thinks Obama is one of the smartest people Earl Has met that is conclusive proof of what?

    I suggest it means EzP has a very limited universe of smart people but hey, it most likely is an honest comment. For someone like me, who had the ranking student at Yale as one suitemate (Rhodes scholar, president of phi beta kappa) and another guy who went on to be a supreme court clerk and a top supreme court advocate and a third guy who was an international chess master, I guess my standards are a little higher. And I doubt EzP really knows Obama all that well

    Your certainty is unmoving.

    and to claim opposition to him has as a major factor, his skin color is without much merit. furthermore many of those who oppose Obama support Herman Caine or love
    quoting Dr Walter Williams.
    Is this the "one black friend" theory? Nice move...or not.

    You seem to think that if he was white, people like me who despise welfare socialism and expanding government would embrace this man.
    Really, where did you get that? My comments about racism only stem from people who think he could only get into Harvard because he's black, continue to pull up whatever article they can find that insults his intelligence and work ethic and conclude that black people are inherently less intelligent than whites (which Riverdad did). I don't recall my comments being associated with criticisms of his policies. Remember, it's YOU who brought up race for no reason.

    what many people reject are the specious claims that Obama is the brightest president to every occupy the Oval office when there are people who had stronger academic records (Bush I was in the top three of his class at Yale, Nixon at Duke Law, and Clinton a Rhodes Scholar) or far greater accomplishments in their lives before they became President (Bush I again comes to mind)
    I have no idea if he was the brightest - never claimed that he was. I do think you have a problem with a black man being in office since you seem far too eager to pull him down in spite of all his accomplishments. You call it like you see it, I call it like I see it.

    Certainly smart enough to convince people he was competent initially in 2008.

    He did no compromising at all when he had Democratic majority's in the Congress; the new reality now that Congress is split between Republicans and Democrats is he is FORCED to compromise. He's got no choice in the matter.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Are you smarter than The Obama?

    so it is your position that Obama would have been accepted at Harvard law with grades that were several deviations below what 95% of black males were turned down with>

    His race has nothing to do with my opposition. My view on welfare socialism has been consistent since I joined this board-2 years before anyone even gave Obama a second thought for the presidency and a year before most people had ever heard of that clown

    I think I've already said that's my position. Is it your position that no white man in the history of Harvard Law has entered with a gpa of 3.3 or below? (If yes, please cite your source. Also, I'm still waiting for testimonies from the dept. of admissions.)

    His race has nothing to do with my opposition. My view on welfare socialism has been consistent since I joined this board-2 years before anyone even gave Obama a second thought for the presidency and a year before most people had ever heard of that clown
    What you say has no effect on my opinion. I think you have a problem with a black man in office. Some Republicans just have issues with his policies, others have issues with his race and his policies - I think you fall into the latter category.
