Is Obama as right as he seems? New evidence reveals his college class got lower SAT scores than Dubya
Average SAT score of Obama's 1981 transfer group to Columbia was 1,100
Bush got into Yale with score of 1,206 out of 1,600
Obama refuses to release his academic record
Barack Obama may have got worse high school grades than George W Bush after new evidence showed the current president was among a college class with poor average SAT scores.
Doubts about the supposedly superior intellect of Mr Obama were first raised after he refused to release his academic record.
He has also made some factual errors during his time in the job although he is still a very long way behind his gaff-prone predecessor.
But now it has emerged that Mr Obama was among a 1981 intake of transfers to New Yorks Columbia University that was at the time branded one of the worst ever.
The president, who moved from Occidental Community College in Los Angeles, was among 67 students whose average combined math and verbal score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test is a 1,100, according to a report obtained by Breitbart News.
By comparison, Mr Bush who earned a history degree from Yale in 1968 got 1206 out of a possible 1600 points in the same test he took at Andover boarding school in Massachusetts.
If Mr Obama, who majored in political science at Columbia, were near the average of that year, it would mean he had worse high school grades than a president derided by many as the dumbest in history.
Of course, Mr Obama went on to distinguish himself by going on to earn the second highest honour in a graduate law degree at Harvard.

Obama is a blithering idiot. It doesn’t take a PhD to discover that in public he is a rambling fool. I have under my ‘favorites’ a plethora of his blunders and bloopers!
Obama seems bright?
Over 1000 was considered poor back then? Jeez, I thought my score of lower than 900 in what, 2002, 2003 was fairly terrible. Now I find out an average of 1,100 was considered poor. I guess my score was downright lower than the depths of the Marianas Trench.
But go figure, I scored 70 on the ASVAB in 2004.
Obama got a 420 on math and 510 on verbal. Tops.
Oh, oh, do you have a link?
(I’ll probably have to clean my ears out with bleach and a power drill after watching it, though)
Well OBVIOUSLY his scores elevated the whole group. Without his brilliance making up for their stupidity they would not have broke 1000... /S
Me too! I would like a link!
Obama seems bright?Not to me.
It’s amazing that these bits and pieces on the current dope in the WH are coming from a foreign news source. Where are the US sources?
And they let you in with a 70 on the ASVAB?
Just finishing my 20th year in the high school classroom. The notion that SAT is the essential measurement of intelligence is, in my experience, tremendously overstated. It is one mere benchmark among many.
Is this is a trick question?
000bama got straight As in Dr. Alinsky’s classes.
I would rather know if he's as dumb as he seems. But, then again, I live in NC so I might get arrested for asking that question.
I'd have to say yes.
He seems like an idiot and he is one.
