Obama Is Our Smartest President?

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:

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.  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.  I’m thinking that it’s somewhere around catatonic or idiot.  Too much Kool-Aid.  How can someone claim that an IQ is off the charts when they don’t even know what that person’s IQ is and for that matter, where the hell are Obama’s school records period?  Did he even have good grades?  Did he have good grades when he was snorting cocaine?  He’s hiding all his transcripts in his bid to be transparent, so we’ll never know.  And what is even more laughable – does this Beschloss guy even know the IQs of any of the presidents.  You know that Reagan sure was an idiot.  And how about that Jefferson guy, all he could do was write a Declaration of Independence.  Washington sure was stupid, he was just a military genius.  And Madison, don’t even get me started.  Obama hasn’t done a damn thing yet and he is already a genius and I heard some poll today that has a 60%+ approval rating for him.  Never mind that he only got 52% of the vote.  Have things changed that much in a week or are we still hearing slanted polls.  Hmm…I wonder.

We’re only a week into this post-election.  I don’t know how much more drivel I can take and we’ve got four years to go.  My eyes are bleeding!

  1. The new standard appears to be “state your opinion and forget the sources” unless you’re a conservative, then you better have plenty of backup… Great observation on the 60% approval rating!

    I’m a new reader, keep up the good work!

  2. He’s anything you want him to be,right ? He has not been tested as many of the other Presidents had during their administration, and those are the facts. Smart, he fooled you didn’t he, he does not carry the soul of American Freedom in his soul nor heart, but he’s there for this time in American history, where its going I don;t know and neither do you.

  3. The 75%ile LSAT score for admits to Harvard law is 176. The man graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law. If his LSAT score reflects his performance in law school, which isn’t a perfect predictor, but is a fairly strong one, then he likely scored around or above 176. You can correlate LSAT scores with IQs. A 176 LSAT score is roughly the equivalent of a 143 IQ. It might be higher; it might be lower. BUT it’s safe to say that Barack Obama is a “genius” in terms of his IQ score.
    Now, I have no idea how brilliant past Presidents were. However, Teddy Roosevelt comes to mind as a famously and impressively brilliant man. Many consider Bill Clinton a genius, too.

  4. If Obama is so intelligent then grace us with your college transcripts and let us see first hand. He was appointed head of the Law Review because of his color not his ability. He was not a sitting professor challenged each day by students but a “lecturer”. He would pop in, read a prepared text and dee dee mou out of the room. He is a light weight. I would put any of our presidents up against this buffoon….from Washington, to Adams to Jefferson, to Lincoln, to Wilson etc…even the rapist slick Willie. I would bet huge sums that Bush has a higher IQ. He was not a great speaker but he was a fighter pilot flying jets…they only Jet obama is familiar with is reading JET the magazine Jet.

  5. And it was just these kind of morons who put that snake oil salesman into office in the first damn place
