Reagan was an *actor* -- memorizing lines is a major part of the job. Doesn't mean a thing. I've know a few dumb-as-a-brick actors who could memorize a whole Shakespeare play.

As for your '30 minute speech' metric, in the first 3 months of his presidency, Obama went to a meeting of the GOP House caucus, answered every question off the cuff and gave a speech without a teleprompter. He was so impressive they've never dared to repeat the exercise.

barry is probably in the top five of dumbest humans to occupy the office. Jefferson, Nixon, and perhaps Reagan are in the top five of the brightest people to hold the office.

If Obama is so smart, then why are all his college records sealed??? Everything about this shyster has been locked away. No college friends, attending as a foreign exchange student, etc. And for what it's worth, every independent IQ test given on a blind basis shows Orientals score the highest followed by Caucasians. Need I post where Blacks place???

I think that Lyndon Johnson, jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were the smartest Presidents. Intelligence does not equal a great Presidency however.

He also created the famous IRS

But Obama is a ˝ breed. That has to account for something.

Obama is smart like a serpent. He knows how to get away with things and walk that line of lawlessness real well.

I'm hoping we get an honest man in there who can have the charisma of this president to win over right away the voters who don't do their research, and the integrity to run this country according to the constitution.
