    I wanted to post the comments some of the state-run media have given us in their gushing support of the great Obama. This is one of the most memorable from last year. There have been others but this one sticks out the most.

    And, does this one look familiar?

    "Obama Is Our Smartest President?

    November 11, 2008
    Historian Michael Beschloss was interviewed Monday on Don Imus’ radio show and he made the claim that President-elect Obama’s IQ is off the charts and that he is the smartest president we have ever had. Here is the meat of the conversation:


    Quote:
    Historian Michael Beschloss: Yeah. Even aside from the fact of electing the first African American President and whatever one’s partisan views this is a guy whose IQ is off the charts — I mean you cannot say that he is anything but a very serious and capable leader and — you know — You and I have talked about this for years …

    Imus: Well. What is his IQ?

    Historian Michael Beschloss: … our system doesn’t allow those people to become President, those people meaning people THAT smart and THAT capable

    Imus: What is his IQ?

    Historian Michael Beschloss: Pardon?

    Imus: What is his IQ?

    Historian Michael Beschloss: Uh. I would say it’s probably - he’s probably the smartest guy ever to become President.

    You can find the full audio on the show here. WTKK - Imus In The Morning, 96.9 WTKK, Boston*-*Imus in the Morning guest: Michael Beschloss 11/10/08
    You have to fast forward to about 13 minutes in to get the good stuff. So I’m thinking that I would like to know the historian’s IQ. "

    Whoever posted this is one smart guy.

    Wonder what the caption would be for it:

    "President in his *PROUD AS A PENIS* pose"

    An interesting addendum:

    "How smart is President Obama? The American Thinker quotes historian Michael Beschloss on Obama's IQ, who "says it is off the charts", while admitting he does not know what it is. One of the reasons republican moderates voted for Obama is because he is "so smart". It is unclear what "smart" really means in politics. I think it is the red herring of politics. Universities are loaded with faculty who are "smart". But 80% are liberal. In politics, policies matter, not technical interpretations of esoteric material; the usual purpose or functionality of high IQ smarts. He attended Occidental/Columbia undergrad and Harvard Law. Bush attended Yale undergrad and Harvard Business School. Bush released his grades and SAT scores (1206 on Verbal and Math--pre-1974--like 1300 today) as did his opponents, Kerry and Gore. Using the "Otis Gamma and Scholastic Aptitude" score, one can infer Bush's IQ to be 130. This places him in about the top 2-3% in the country. This is higher than John Kerry and lower than Al Gore. The latter was a massive underachiever in college.

    We do not know Obama's SAT, LSAT, or GPA scores because he won't release them. His Columbia GPA was estimated by the WSJ to be between 1.8 and 3.0 (C- to B) because he did not graduate with honors. He was at the bottom 15% in Occidental. He was in the top 10% at Harvard Law because he graduated "magna cum laude". So we assume he is smart, but how he got into Harvard with that record is peculiar. In any event, he will not release his records. But Beschloss calls him the smartest president ever. That just tells me that Beschloss is the dumbest historian ever. Does this matter? Not his scores. But what does not releasing his academic records tell you about his personality?"

    It means he feels he has something in there to be ashamed of.

    It could be something minor...but his ego doesn't allow him to feel in any shape or form to be thought of as inferior.
