So, a little more on the probable IQ of teh Bo Dizzle. This article, from 12/9/09, offers his perspective on his own performance.
President Obama is giving himself “a good solid B-plus” grade for his first year in office.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired Sunday night, the president claimed progress on economic and international fronts.
Obama says the only thing that stands in the way of giving himself a better grade is that some elements of his agenda – health care reform and putting more Americans to work – remain undone.
“A good solid B-plus”…?!?!? Sounds like he thinks that’s a decent grade. Here’s a hint….. anyone who scores above 1300 on the SAT doesn’t think a B+ is a good grade, solid or not.
BUT lots of people who score below that think a B+ is all right…. and folks who score around 1000 think a “good, solid B+” is creditable – a testament to earnest effort, and a worthy reward. Hey, it could have been worse!
If this is all the evidence that we will get from our President about his intellectual capacity, we have no choice but to go with what we’ve got. Sure, maybe his actual grades were stellar…. but we don’t have those – ANY of them. We have only his Freudian slip of a comment on his own performance.
Further, his justification,
… the only thing that stands in the way of giving himself a better grade is that some elements of his agenda – health care reform and putting more Americans to work – remain undone.
telegraphs his preferred method of completing classwork : B.S. C’mon – who hasn’t B.S.’ed their way through at least ONE idiotic assignment at one time or another? Or at least tried to do it. For someone to offer a B.S answer in such a public forum indicates that they are familiar and comfortable with the Art of B.S. – perhaps such skills were honed in the classroom?
Now, B.S. is an art form, true, but plebeian answers such as this indicate a hack-job, not the work of an artist. And B.S. is not recognized on the SAT as a skill. All of which supports the notion that teh Bo is sadly lacking in the brilliance department.
