    That's debatable. Obama is educated. Doesn't seem like it's working out good for anyone.

    But, the attack, as here, is on the education. Not his intellect. Not his experience. But that he is educated.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    When the refrain is constant that those educated are bad, as it is with far too many, the message is clear: education is bad.

    True or not, you placed the blame on his being educated.

    Re: So how is that "Smart Power" working out?

    you two are killin' me
    He's the affirmative action President doncha know?
    Didja read Barry's Law Review article? (don't fell bad no one else has either)
    why not? I read the one my kid did last year (published on the web long before the NSA thing broke)
    dealing with the fact that when you send data through a 3rd party (i.e. gmail) you've lost all expectation of privacy.

    No one ever recalls seeing Barry Soetoro at Columbia including law professors and students from his supposed
    graduating class, Guess the choon gang knew where ol Barry was then eh?

    Are his college transcripts sealed because he was an Indonesian foreign exchange student or
    because his grades made GW look like a rocket scientist? (both most likely).

    so yeah just perhaps Barry is the least qualified person in any room he walks into

    You inferred it here. You clearly infer it. This not about the president, but education.

    An academic is a type of person. He or she has no real world experience and only has knowledge that they were spoon fed by other academics. This is not anti education it is anti having nothing in your resume except education, see the difference now?
