    I'm claiming it is just one of those things like that poll where 95% of people said they were a better than average driver.

    He's had to have made some intelligent moves throughout his career to get to where he is now.

    Aside from that he graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harvard.

    I like to think I'm fairly intelligent (30 on the ACT, will soon have my Bachelor's and then a Master's down the road), but I don't have the drive or capability that he does.

    On an intelligence level he's no genius. I'm tested between 129 and 136 IQ all my life, using multiple tests. Whether or not you or anyone else lends creedance to IQ tests is a different story. The man is academically smart. He's not stupid. He's misguided, he's misinformed by those around him and his character is what it is. I don't believe he's evil - he's just ineffective and has no business being the President. He'd make a good lawyer, a good CEO maybe, certainly someone in the private sector who would excel at his profession. Then again, "smarter" how? There's lots of different types of smart.

    Smart people would recognize that Obama was not a law professor, he was a part-time lecturer who was hired because he was black.

    Do you really think you can prove that you're smarter than Obama by blurting out idiotic white supremacist rhetoric? I hate to tell you, but that makes you look dumber, not smarter.

    And he was a professor... He taught several standard law courses. His title was "lecturer" instead of "professor" because he wasn't tenure track. You don't sign up for tenure track unless you plan on teaching for the rest of your career. But he was definitely a full fledged professor. Full time, had his own classes like con law, etc.

    Well yeah, there's probably a lot of delusion involved in the answers.

    Being a law professor does not automatically qualify someone as super duper smart.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The average LSAT score at Harvard Law equates to an IQ of 141. So, a distinct step above your highest score and yes, 141 is in the genius range. And that's just the average. He came out magna cum laude, so he beat out most the students there, meaning his score was likely above average for Harvard Law.

    So you're saying that he is smart but you disagree with his politics. That's fine.
