Obama, Definitely Not Smarter than a 5th Grader
vanity ^ | 5/10/10 | me

Posted on 05/10/2010 7:01:10 PM PDT by highlander_UW

Never again allow liberals to claim how brilliant and super evolved Obama is. Obama isn't even as smart as a 5th grader by his own admission.

In His commencment speach at Hampton College he made a fact claim about his inability to operate standard devices as simple as an ipod and a Playstation. Kid's younger than the 5th grade are masters of such devices, and if we have a president who by his own admission is incapable of operating an ipod then I refuse to ever again make a claim as to Obama's proclaimed brilliance.

Here's a short excerpt related to his speech...

"With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation," Obama said.

Heck, even 5th graders know there are only 50 states, not 57.... Or was it 58?
I’m surprised Mr. Brilliant can even tie his own shoes.

He doesn’t seem to realize this is a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy. Of course, Kagan doesn’t know that either. I think the Progressives are trying to indoctrinate the sheeple in that direction.

He doesn't realize this is a constitutional republic, not a dictatorship.

Actually, the dildork said epancipation, usurping fool that he is.

And apparently depending upon what school district, emancipation is at most a 5th grade vocabulary word...so another Obama fail.

Glad you like it, your bumper sticker reminded me of that post I'd read about a week ago.

One of the comments related another sticker the poster had seen that read..."honk if you love Jesus, text if you want to meet Him"

We're supposed to believe that a guy who can't give up his Blackberry doesn't know how to work an iPod? Pulleeeez.

Are you calling Obama a liar? I think he's telling the truth about being an idiot...but maybe you're right and he's just lying. But I want to see the liberals argue that he's not an idiot, he's a liar. My response will be...so he's lying to convince people he's an idiot? That sounds idiotic to me.

Just a quick and dirty one - sort of generic-like, the same way that the sign on the back of that SUV was generic-looking; no fancy graphics, just the plain, honest truth:

Look Stupid

He lies - he knows how to operate an iPod: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/jun/25/barackobama.uselections2008

It’s a mistake to assume Obama is stupid...he’s not. He’s intelligent enough to exact his agenda upon the U.S...and beyond.

“We’re supposed to believe that a guy who can’t give up his Blackberry doesn’t know how to work an iPod? Pulleeeez.”

Once again...the self-centered @sswipe lies! Have the drugs he consumes totally destroyed him memory?

He gave the Queen of England a high-tech gift of an iPod...stocked with “crap” about himself. He gave England’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown box a set of 25 cheap movie DVDs. Hmm, looks like he likes electronics to give as gifts.

Well, between you and me, I sort of did come to the conclusion that Obama is a liar. He puts it on display in almost every speech he makes in fact. I tend to watch them and then turn off the speech at the first lie...I've never seen an entire Obama speech.

Not only was the Ipod stocked with "how great I am" but the DVDs weren't the kind that can be played in Britain.

He's such a brilliant diplomat!!

Well, he is lying about being self deprecating.. As we all know he is the biggest narcissist on the planet. He wanted to get a laugh from those Obot college students.
