    By standards required of other politicians, is President Obama stupid?

    Obama shows his R-E-S-P-E-C-T for "women of soul"

    No president is stupid.However when the media has their lips around your cock you can get away with practically anything while the scream bloody murder over what your opponents are doing.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Presidents aren't judged against average people. Presidents are judged against other world leaders, other Presidents before them, and their ability to do the job. Simply to run for President presumes a HUGE ego and the ability to do the job. Hence, critique from others... even us commoners... is acceptable.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

His handling of the PPACA passage and especially Benghazi shows that he's not able to handle adversarial situations well.
    Why do you think he is extraordinary in any way?

    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.
    How about Reading words from a page without digesting them first to understand their meaning before speaking?

    Does an intelligent individual do that?

    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.
    That's why he said that. He was calling you racist.

He voted present more than for or against legislation and during his tenure as a state representative he admits he spent a fair amount of time in pursuit of the white powder. He has zero by way of significant legislative achievements as a senator.

    Stupid...no...but all we really know is that he can read a teleprompter like nobodies business.

When he said that he had been campaigning in all 57 states, he was using that exaggeration to tell folks that he was tired enough to have visited 57 states.

    He couldn't possibly not know how many states there actually are in the USA.

    However, it's a fun gaff, so it will stick around forever. Just know that those who use it against him will never realize how stupid they sound. That's OK by me.
    I do beleive he said after the 57, he had 1 or 2 more to go.

    How does that fit in with your theory?

    This is the first time I have Heard he said it on purpose and he was joking.

    Did you just make that up?

    I like the old saying - "book smart, life dumb" - seems to fit him quite well, unfortunately for your great country.
    Don't give him so much credit when the majority of the credit belongs to his handlers.
