It's seems obvious to me that you think you know it all, I know I don't. I never made it pass the 9th grade but ended up in management in a large international company. Knowing that I lacked the ability to recall information I found a way to work around it, I never had a listening problem, If I wanted to be a chess master I would find the best players to learn from, Those who worked with "me" whether at a higher level of management or at a job that I supervised liked working "with" me" .
You don't impress me, you seem to be one of those "me me me" people you have no idea that it takes all of us working towards a common goal for the common good to achieve the best possible outcome for "all". You appear to think that your blood is a different color and more valuable then mine or some other non Ivy League individual.
The way that President Obama has attempted to work across the aisle, takes his time to collect the best information that he can before making a decision indicates to me that he is intelligent, that he is not intimidated by others that may have more knowledge then he has. President Obama has to learn when and where to draw the line, he needs to become tougher less willing to compromise his visions maybe by 2012 when the dems take the majority back in both houses and he is re-elected to a second term
A smart person recognizes their weakness and knows how to turn that weakness into strength. Listening to you leads me to believe that you already know every thing there is to know, I know a man with an IQ in the 140's he has spent the last ten years in his basement he knows every thing just ask him

its not like the issue of Obama's school records exist within a political vacuum, free of racism.
If you don't like the question, don't answer it.
Really. So, GWB is smarter than you, and all of the people who referred to him as an 'idiot', et al are childish and deserve little attention from actual adults?But as to question the intelligence of the President of the United States... is pretty childish and deserves little attention from actual adults.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.
Since all his records are hidden we may never know for sure.
I know one thing for sure is he's not as brilliant as some claim, and he sure doesn't learn from his mistake.
Needless to say, those are the important, relevant subject areas; I am sure that He could not have anything resmebling an intelligent duscssion in any number of other areas.
