    Re: Is the President stupid?

    None of our presidents were stupid. There's a difference from being an intelligent individual, as Obama very much is, and being a good president and politician. This extends outside to a number of other politicians as well, of course. For example, I never thought Romney was dumb, not a chance, but he didn't suit my preferences to be president.

    He's not a genius though, that word shouldn't be thrown around lightly. Plenty of extremely intelligent folks aren't geniuses either.

    Also, misspelling a word doesn't mean much of anything.

    Any person with merely average intelligence placed on a national stage, will inherently appear to be stupid at times.

    This is because the average person is a ****ing moron.

    Both McCain and Romney are capable of playing chess.

    I thought Obama was playing checkers but last Sunday I was informed that the entire Obama administration are playing marbles.

    todays foreign policy requires the skill of a fencer and a dualist, and not the brute force of a rambo.

    Politics is not chess - it is telling most folks what they want to hear. Being good at getting elected has little to do with effectively governing - see congressional approval ratings in the polls.

    Obama and those he surrounded himself with are neither fencers and obvious are ballisticphobes so they aren't duelist and definitely not Rambos. Rambo never put himself in for a Purle Heart for selfinflicted wounds.

    Admit it, you wanted to say "dice and dominoes".

    Politics is completely different from geopolitics. Geopolitics is like playing chess not checkers like the current administration.

    In the geopolitical world of chess Putin is good.

    Reagan and Nixon were good.

    Nixon's geopolitical move in 1972 of normalizing relations with China was a stertegic chess move during the Cold War and caught the Soviet Union off guard.

    JFK and LBJ ###### up big time and our military were used like pawns. (Vietnam War)

    The question shouldn't be if Obama is stupid. He's not, he's incompetent. The job of POTUS is bigger than Obama can handle.

    I think the problem with Obama is his narcissism and he refuses to surround himself with anyone who he believes may be better than himself so the results were that the Obama administration is second rate.

    Yeah. In the history of the United States only 44 people have been able to become president. That's no small feat. Graduating from Harvard isn't really something that stupid people do either.

    I voted no, he's a genuis. No would have been sufficient but no, he's a genuis was the closest to regular no.

    Playing craps in Vegas is my game. I like working with numbers and know what the odds are. I've even made some sucker bets and walked away being comped by the Casino trying to keep me in town so they could get a chance getting their money back.

    I don't play dominoes any more, stopped playing that game when I entered the 7th grade. I've noticed that dominoes is very popular at the parks in the hood.
