Come on. President Obama is not an idiot. Maybe he didn't do the best job in the world, but he is an intelligent person. He was not picked based on the color of his skin. Remember: the choices back then were Obama and a racist, pro-war, senior citizen.

Because harlem always turns out to vote en masse. Obama won almost exclusively because hes black, lets all accept that. Also no ones saying hes dumb, but hes most definitely not a good person

I will say it. Obama is dumb. He has middling intelligence at best having been coddled along at each step of his life because he has black skin but can talk white (due to growing up with his whte mom and grandparents). If he was self aware, he's smart enough to be a competent middle manager somewhere probably. Since he is totally un-self aware and thinks he actually has succeeded on the merits and possesses fantastic gifts, he is a total nightmare. Add to that the fact he has the thinnest possible skin wrapped tightly around the largest possible ego and you have a truly remarkable person.
