Obama was President of the Harvard Law Review, you don't get that job via affirmative action. To even work on the Harvard Law Review you have to have high grades in your Freshman year at Harvard Law School, and score high in a writing competition. To be President of the Law Review is a highly sought after honor. They are elected by the other editors.
<quoted text>
Yes, he was mistaken. His uncle actually helped liberate Buchenwald, not Auschwitz. Gee, what a jerk Obama must be to make a horrible mistake like that.
But, at least he knows how to spell "Auschwitz"...
"Senator Obama's family is proud of the service of his grandfather and uncles in World War II - especially the fact that his great uncle was a part of liberating one of the concentration camps at Buchenwald. Yesterday he mistakenly referred to Auschwitz instead of Buchenwald in telling of his personal experience of a soldier in his family who served heroically," said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton this afternoon in a statement, which also clarified that the great-uncle "Served in the 89th Infantry Division that Liberated Ohrdruf, a Subcamp of Buchenwald, the First Camp Liberated by Americans, on April 4, 1945."

Accepted. I was just asking & you answered. I never doubt Obama's IQ, Just his reasonings, motives, his transparency, His ability or willingness to listen to 310 million citizens that he is supposed to represent.

The only person DumBama listens to is himself. He is the most party-first, country-second President I've ever seen in my lifetime.

There is intelligence and there is common sense. In many cases, very intelligent people are a little short on logic. With DumBama, he's totally void of logic.

The best colleges in the world can't teach common sense. You either have it or you don't.

Pops, as I've said before, I don't think Obama is a great President. He was young and without a lot of political experience when he took the office. I think he made a political miscalculation by trying to compromise with the Republicans. This current breed of House Republicans aren't interested in compromise. Even Boehner (who is supposed to be their leader) is unable to bring them to consensus.

What these times require is a Richard Nixon type --- a shrewd political operator that will use every dirty trick in the book to achieve their goals. I think that Hillary Clinton may turn out to be that type of President.

The tea party faction of the Republican party hates Obama with a passion that goes far beyond his actions. It's a combination of hating any and all Democrats and good old fashioned racism. Obama reminds me of Jackie Robinson --- smart, well-spoken, and hated by some for the change he represents.

Some here like to pretend that racism only existed in the past. But here's something that happened last year:

"A famous statue of Jackie Robinson at a minor league ballpark in Brooklyn was vandalized the other day, defaced and desecrated with swastikas and ugly racist slurs.

"Hile Hitler," some sub-human scrawled in black pen. "Die [N-word].[F-word] Jackie Robinson and all [N-words].""

The POTUS is elected to try to accomplish the goals that the candidate set forth in the campaign. The election determines which agenda is followed. Do you expect a candidate to run on a platform of being anti-abortion and then pursue a pro-choice agenda once elected? Your "he's not representing the people" charge is na´ve and uninformed.

I think that Hillary is qualified enough but she may be too polarizing. While gaining her experiences, she also created a lot of baggage.
She likely would have been a much better Sec of State under a different president.
I would have to see IF she runs & who she would be running against.
I have said B4 that there will always be racists so I agree with you an that. Even Obama & our wonderful AG have blamed racism for part of the state of affairs.
They knew that racism was & is an issue so shouldn't they be handling the issue better? They have lived under racism to some degree all of their lives of course. Making it an excuse is not a way to deal with it.
There are also other biases that will always exist. Remember how Romney's & Kennedy's religions came up so often & not positively either.
A few posters on this thread bring up Mormons every now & then & others bring up Christianity (water walkers) in a low life way.

As you said, HE is to try accomplish goals set forth as a candidate. You named only 1 issue & even that 'point' makes him a liar. Is that any good?
He has also changed many campaign promises with gay marriage, immigration, jobs, debt & deficit, foreign relations & more.
I won't hold him responsible for his promises about the ongoing wars of the time because candidates lack a lot of info until they take office & have their staff in place.
I am not naive, I just obviously have higher standards & expectations than you do. And I am glad that one of us has high standards.

So a President is only supposed to cater to his constituents and to hell with the people that didn't elect him? After all, that's exactly what DumBama is doing.

And if you believe that, then don't complain about the next President if he or she is a conservative and only carries out conservative agendas.
