    I have asked this question a few times in other threads and no one seems to want to answer it. I don't know if they are to busy with their heated debates to notice my question or not. So I figure I will start a thread and ask it directly

    In obama's Bio "Dreams of my Father" he said he went through the last two years of high school in a haze, meaning he was a stoner. He also hinted that he would rather drink and do drugs then do school work. Now how can someone with this mentality and thinking be able to enter into Harvard law school. This is why I would like to see he college transcripts. With how he does when he is not being directed by a teleprompter and the way he's running a country that he has been intrusted with I cannot see how he managed to even make a acceptable entrance exam dumb fuck college.

    I have never read his books - don't intend to. He got into Occidental in California by claiming status as a foreign student (Indonesian). Not sure how he got into Harvard, but one thing is certain - he's been groomed for his current job for years and years by somebody.

    What we do know.... without doubt.... is that his grade average at Columbia College was not more than 3.3, because his PolSci was 'without honors'.

    This is the 'smartest' POTUS we've ever had? Don't make me laugh.

    why do you care?

    he made harvard law review.... that means he was TOP 10% of his class at Harvard Law. I'd say that's pretty good. And the O/P knows it because it's been repeatedly explained to him. That means he must be trolling.

    Are we really kidding here?

    and who says he's our smartest president? bill clinton was our smartest... baby bush probably one of our least intelligent. but i know people who knew him at harvard and they said obama was brilliant there. *shrug*

    but we can play these games to justify the anti-intellectualism of the radical right i suppose.

    Please provide links to sites that show Obama edited or wrote the Harvard Law Review and copies of his work. It would be nice to see transcripts from any college he may have went to as well. You may be the first person on earth ever to post them.

    Also, it's not "anti-intellectualism", it's "anti-pointy headed intellectualism", there's a difference. These supposed geniuses (Bush Included) got us into this mess but of course, have no clue how to get us out.

    Obama is always saying "The Republicans drove us into a ditch" yet it never occurs to him to call a tow truck and get us out of that ditch.

    There is no evidence from Harvard. But you tell me, how did someone who scraped a degree (no honors - that means less than a 3.3 average) manage to excel at Harvard? Why hide the evidence?

    Do you know the difference between an "educated dummy" and "intelligence"? I've met people with years of elite education and they're dumber than a box of Post Toasties. The right is not "anti-iintellectual". The right is for education, but the kind of education that is useful and meaningful. Not the "educated dummy" kind, which is obviously our president.
