Public Likes Obama More Than Either Romney OR Santorum, More Say He Is Intelligent (Barf alert)
http://today.yougov.com ^

Posted on 03/08/2012 1:31:36 PM PST by Lucky9teen

(Week of 3/3/2012) The President’s approval rating has settled into the mid-forties, continuing the improvement in his ratings since late summer. This week, 43% approve of the way the President is handling his job, and 51% disapprove.

The President continues to lead in head–to–head matchups with his Republican opponents. One of his strengths remains perceptions of his intelligence: 59% of the public calls Obama "intelligent." In contrast, 40% say that about former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and 27% use that term to describe former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.



TOPICS: Conspiracy; Humor
KEYWORDS: humor; intelligent; obama
Really? I find this amazingly unbelievably unbelievable.

Darn it!

They went and redefined the word “intelligent” and didn’t TELL me!

Yeah, he’s intelligent in the same way my dog is intelligent.

But my dog isn’t trying to use her “intelligence to destroy the country she calls home.

Since Nixon, the media has presented every Republican president as a crook, dunce, dimwit, klutz or illiterate and every dim as the brightest guy since Einstein.

Set the fact checkers loose on that one.

Uh, just my 2 cents but after looking at that site, I think its anoter liberal indoctrination type site. And they fudge with numbers horribly. For example, they tout unemployment at 8.5%. Gallup reported unemployment at 9.1% today.

Remember how the Soviets used to rave about Lenin's incredible brain? Then when he died and they studied it, it was the brain of a criminally insane person. With Hemisphere's so devoid of convolutions they were almost smooth.

Since when does intelligence equal a good leader/president? There's lotsa smart people running around all over the place, doesn't mean they should be president.

Don't get me wrong, I am not looking to have Billy from Stop & Shop as president but come on.....there's many attributes that make a good president. Obama has NONE of them, IMHO.

He has at best average intelligence...college grades are being hidden for a reason. His comment about 57 states, thousands being killed in Kansas by tornadoes, and naval corpsemen...indicate a man poorly acclimated to the culture...doubt he’s read much...likely passed through various schools on an affirmative action basis.

Well, hell, Stalin, Mao, and Hitler were likely just as smart. So what does that buy you?

Obama is one and done that’s how intelligent he is. He will be lucky to avoid jail time for the voter fraud he commited on the american people is presenting a Birth Certificate, SS Card and draft card deemed to be forgeries, that’s how smart he is. He will be lucky to avoid jail time for the FAST & FURIOUS idealogical brainstorm that may reach his desk in the near future, that’s how intelligent he is.

Report: ".... More Say He Is Intelligent..."

Response: "More" may say he is intelligent. However, their judgement is highly suspect as most of his fans do not even belong to our society. Secondly, his entire life has been based upon affirmative action policies. He would never have been in office except for the fact that the long process of the collapse of Western society has been going on since 1954.

Anyone who thinks Obama will be easy to beat is sadly naive.
Do you think they will let the commie coup they pulled off
slip through their fingers?
This will be the dirtiest fight in history.
And sadly, Newt, the one man who could stand up against Obama is losing the race.
