Comparability is much more likely for a fixed subject. In mathematics, most sciences and IQ (as we measure), I would put myself ahead of Obama. I don't hesitate to believe that there are areas he knows more than me.
    But yet you didn't add you name to the list that claimed they were smarter. I give you extra points for humility.

We all know that acceptance is not based solely on grades and test scores.
    we heard for eight years that Bush had a DUI 20 years before anyone heard of him and that he was a C student at Yale-a constant howling that ended when it turned out that pompous ass Kerry had even lwer grades. we also heard unsupported BS that Bush was a Coke fiend (as opposed to Obama who was a confirmed crack head) and was "AWOL" despite an Honorable discharge. Pointing out that Obama did not get into Harvard on merit is certainly legitimate

    You don't seem to get an obvious point. What Obama did 2-3 years after he was accepted at Harvard is not valid. Its like all you people who whine about Bush getting into Harvard B School (where executive potential is a major consideration-far more than grades) being told WELL BUSH ENDED UP BEING PRESIDENT SO OBVIOUSLY HE HAD WORLD CLASS EXECUTIVE TALENT

    From our past conversations I know that you are not a white supremacist you think you are far more intelligent then 95% of the human race

    I think that Dr Sanders failed to take into account just how many non minority students have a huge advantage in thier entry exams in that they probably have access to the exams prior to taking them, just one of the benefits that non minority students have over minority students. I just look at ex-President Bush how could he have got into the same school you went to "Yale" and then how could he have graduated.

    If SAT's are used to determine who gets in and who does not it appears that maybe just maybe some people get in because their daddies had contacts that normal more deserving students did not have.

    Why should money or daddy ever determine who gets into our best universities any more then other factor?
    I hate to upset you but I am more intelligent than 95% of the human race. actually based on IQ scores and a score of 1570 (circa 1975) SAT Its more like 99% of the human race.

    why do poor whites do better on such tests than even wealthy blacks (who tended to be the majority of blacks who got into Yale with AA)

    are you suggesting that white people are intellectually superior to black people?

    it sure looks like you're about to jump off that cliff.

    So tell us, Mr. ex-Far Right Man, what was your membership # in the John Birch Society?
    lolwut? You guys got a new name for insulting those that disagree with you? And where did it come from--the Sean Hannity show? But I digress. Resorting to personal insults is a clear sign of being unwilling, or unable, to refute an opposing view.

    I did the same, and it only solidified my new views. What's your point?

    We are clearly reading different threads, then. You and Riverdad have dug yourselves a very deep hole, and you (plural) don't seem to be getting out of it any time soon.
