Book: Obama Has ‘Close to Zero’ Patience for ‘Professional Blacks’

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart, November 7, 2013

The new book Double Down: Game Change 2012 claims President Barack Obama does not have “patience” for what his advisors say he calls “professional blacks.” The book also says Obama dislikes the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) as much as he despises the Tea Party movement.

“Obama had little patience for the ‘professional left,’ and vanishingly close to zero for what one of his senior African American aides, Michael Strautmanis, referred to as ‘professional blacks’ (as opposed to black professionals),” authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann wrote on page 39 of the book. “Apart from Georgia congressman John Lewis and Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, Obama had nearly as much contempt for the CBC as he did for the Tea Party Caucus.”

“New York’s Charlie Rangel he derided as a hack; Jesse Jackson Sr. was effectively banned from the White House,” according to the authors. “Obama remembered all too well a conversation with [Cornel] West in 2009, in which the professor used the precious time to complain about his seating at the inauguration.”

The passage comes in a section that details the aftermath of the 2011 Budget Control Act. The debt ceiling grand bargain reached with House Speaker John Boehner ultimately resulted in the sequester. The time frame was during the summer of 2011, as Obama’s re-election campaign began to heat up and as Mitt Romney was emerging as the Republican nominee to face off against him the following year. At that time, many leftist organizations came after Obama, arguing he was not liberal enough for their tastes.

The authors cited several members of the “professional left” and “professional blacks” as having gotten under Obama’s skin because of their criticism of him.

Obama, according to the authors, has struggled with the left and the black community. “One day in the spring of 2011, as he sat with some staffers preparing for a speech to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, Obama rattled off a list of his policies,” the authors note in the same passage. “Cracking down on predatory lending. Education reform. Student loan reform. Most important, health care reform. All with an outsize impact on African Americans. All achieved at a time when half of the GOP believed he’d been born in Kenya . Obama threw up his hands. ‘After all that,’ he said, ‘am I still not black enough?’”

    Whatever you may think of him, Obama is not an idiot. Professional blacks, LOL!!!

    • pcmustgo

      He’s not a genius either… “America is one of the world’s largest Muslim countries”… Obama quote

      • NeanderthalDNA

        No, he’s not. But I think he’s above average IQ, even for Whites.

        • Luca

          He has above average mulatto IQ, about 95 on a good day. However, he lacks common sense , conscience and is a raging narcissist with an over developed sense of ego.

          He is above average in public speaking. He is a verbal magician and alchemist, turning ordinary bovine scat into a work of art.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            I’d like to see the results of an IQ test on him. Guess his SAT scores would work too, the SAT being little more than a qualified IQ test.

            Certainly most blacks see him as a genius because compared to them he kind of is, but I still think he is smarter than most Whites. Would not be surprised if he clocked out at 110 to 120. Of course he could, like many blacks, be good at appearing smart.

            Who knows – not going out on a limb for the guy for many reasons, just saying that assuming every black is a substandard intellect is dangerous and not true. Close, but gotta be careful.

          • So CAL Snowman

            What makes you think this guy is smarter than MOST Whites? He has no grasp of economics, certainly no diplomatic acumen, his decision making is beyond horrible, and he is a pro illegal alien supporter. This makes him more intelligent than MOST Whites?

          • Steven Bannister

            Obama IS more intelligent that most whites.

            The average white IQ is 100. Obama’s IQ is DEFINITELY higher than that, probably around 120 or 130. That’s not genius – but it’s smart. Mixed race blacks tend to have higher IQs than than their pure black brethren.

            In addition to being fairly smart himself, Obama is also surrounded by even smarter people, people with an agenda who are using him as their figurehead and spokesperson. There is no question that Obama was being “groomed” for this job a LONG time before he even ran for office. His presidency was PLANNED.

            I know there’s certain white people who like to believe Obama’s dumb. He’s not – and it’s a mistake on our part to underestimate him.

          • CoweringCoward

            Others wrote his books and he is a bumbling IDIOT whenever his teleprompters malfunction. Where are you getting the 120-130IQ Idea from? He was passed along via AA, all the way into the whitehouse!

          • Thor Bonham

            Steven Bannister gets the 120-130 IQ out of his bum, because there isn’t a soul that ever saw his college or any other school records for that matter .. So how could anyone know what his IQ is ?
            You only get out of Obama what you feed into him .period ..

          • Svigor

            If he got it out of his bum, it was a very, very good stab in the dark. 120-130 is right where I’ve put him after reading quite a bit on the subject.

          • Brian

            You can’t gauge someone’s intelligence from their speech and writings? I’m a member of Mensa and can judge whether someone I meet would qualify (or be borderline) within about a minute of talking to them. I do not like BHO, but he does have an IQ of about 120. There is no need to see his transcripts to judge that. (The Mensa cutoff is around 130.) You realize his mother had a PhD and his father was enrolled in a PhD program at Harvard, right?

          • Katherine McChesney

            I’ve known three people in Mensa who were train wrecks. Their lives were a mess. No common sense at all.

          • Svigor

            There have been several very extensive threads at Steve Sailer’s blog investigating Obama’s IQ. I’d say it’s very likely somewhere between 115 and 130.

          • Luca

            Without a teleprompter or Hollywood scriptwriters his IQ noticeably drops 30 points.

          • Thor Bonham

            Yeah ok ..

          • Svigor

            I think the white people who believe Obama is “brilliant” far exceed in number the white people who believe he’s “dumb.”

            He’s neither. “Bright” is probably an apt description.

            On the other hand, I’ve always found the claims as to how “boring” he finds everything to be very telling; bright people don’t get bored. They find things to do. In my experience, boredom is a malaise of the less-than-bright.

            He won’t release his scores, so it’s obvious he didn’t score all that highly.

          • jane johnson

            …bright people don’t get bored.

            Yes, we do. Listening to a newly promoted, AA token prattle on about his “vision” for the department is beyond boring; it is excruciating. As is the experience of a bright student forced to endure the horrible policy of “no child left behind”.

            While I don’t think that BHO is “brilliant”, I do believe that he is slightly above average in intelligence.

          • pcmustgo

            Doubt it….. “America is one of the world’s largest Muslim countries”… given the “Muslim-American” population. I’m 137 IQ and know Indonesia is… then India. If Obama did write some his earlier poetry and books, he is indeed a gifted writer.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            I think he is smarter than the last guy.

            Again, not going out on a limb, but…

            1. He is articulate. Really. And it’s not just prepackaged talking points. Whatever your political ideology, he certainly evinces an understanding of his ideology beyond the basic talking points. He correctly uses fairly complex vocabulary and appears to do so (to me) not to impress people with his high falootin’ ejumucayshun, but because he is most comfortable speaking like that.

            2. His academic record is solid despite affirmative action doubts.

            3. His understanding of the nuances of politics is pretty astute.

            Again, there are curve blowers out there, like it or not. Underestimating such a one can be disastrous.

            Foreign policy? Sure, pretty naive, but not more so than the rest of the world’s totalitarian democratic leaders. Still better than the neocons…

          • kenfrombayside

            We’ve never seen an academic transcript.

          • MikeofAges

            Smart, but lazy especially in secondary school, but also at Occidental. No one knows what he did at Columbia. He got into Harvard law based on the arranged recommendations of some heavyweight advocates. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard law. That means at least 75 percent but less than 90 percent A’s in his courses. Considering in that era anyway no one who actually did the work got less than a B in any course, that’s not overwhelming. Still, the guy’s got some talent, and the nerve and discipline to stick to a plan.

            When he first came on the scene, I thought he might have had an IQ as high as 143 or so. I think the mid to high 120s is more like it. But that’s smart enough to accomplish what he has. If we knew what his SAT, ACT, LSAT and GRE (if he took it) scores were, we’d have a better idea.

            Also you’ve hit on what is his only salutary accomplishment in my sight, which is to keep the United States out of any more gratuitous foreign wars. But still, maybe not for quite the right reasons.

          • Svigor

            Yes, he’s not very conscientious.

          • Thor Bonham

            You love Obama ,huh ?

          • NeanderthalDNA

            That’s what you get from what said? Really? How?

          • Svigor

            Not by much. Bush’s IQ was probably around 120.

          • American Presidents and politicians in general have higher IQs than the average bear, but hardly any are exceptionally intelligent. I figure the electoral politics sweet spot is the 1-2 SD range above the median, in the case of American whites, 115-130. Any lower, and the job goes above your head, any higher, and your high IQ and the arrogance that comes of it will show and make voters mad, and you’ll never win.

          • Svigor

            A standard deviation or so of difference is often a rule of thumb for communicating. Once you start getting past that, you’re starting to speak a “different” language. So yes, a 120 IQ is a sweet spot for presidents; smart, but not so smart they can’t relate to all the people whose hands they’re shaking, babies they’re kissing, etc.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            I’ve often heard that Bush is a sort of lazy but bright rich boy. A buddy of mine thinks he played stupid in Brutus-like fashion.

          • Svigor

            He’s sort of the opposite of Obama, in that he didn’t seem to feel the need to impress anyone with his verbiage, so instead of coming off as a bit smarter than he is, he came off a bit dumber.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            When W. came to town a few years back on a fund raising mission he met with my state’s most illustrious native, Ric Flair…hee hee…

            According to someone who was there he disappeared in the back room with Flair for a while. Suddenly Flair gives out his signature “WOOO!” After which W responds likewise. This reportedly went on for a while, after which they emerged together and W got a little too chummy with the host’s wife…

            Even when I hated to guy (recovering libtard here) I always thought he would be a “hoot” to party with.

          • Svigor

            I get the impression that W is a relatively bright, very rich and privileged guy who wants to be seen as one of the guys and as more manly than he is. I get the impression that O is a relatively bright, very privileged AA guy who wants to be seen as worthy of his privileges and as more intellectual than he is.

          • Brian

            W and BHO have very close to the same IQ I think, around 120. But W was very incurious for someone of that level. If you look at what he reads, he’s no dummy. And if you watch some of his early video speeches versus later ones, it seems plausible that some of his ‘folksiness’ was affected.

          • kenfrombayside

            Keep the pressure on your reps in congress. Giving 11 – 30 million (nobody knows for sure) criminal lawbreakers legalization pure insanity. Plus, they could sponsor their relatives; that would bring the total up to about 50 million aliens in our midst. Of course, these new citizens will vote for the vile democrats and their socialist giveaways. Most of them will be unskilled, uneducated, low IQ etc. Stop this outrageous bill now. Don’t sit on the sidelines.You are not wasting your time. The American people don’t want this bill. You have to do all you can do to stem the third world assault:
            – Contact your 2 US Senators and rep in congress.
            – after biz hours, leave a message on your DC rep’s voicemail. All US Senators have multiple offices so it would be a good idea to hit all of the. Remember, be civil and don’t threaten
            – go to NUMBERSUSA then go to the take action button. You will be able to send faxes to your 2 US Senators and congressional for free. (I also gave a $50 donation).
            – use Business Reply envelopes to state your opposition to America’s insane immigration policies and the proposed amnesty. Don’t give the parties any money.
            – join an immigration group like FAIR. Strength thru numbers!
            – go to the RNC & DNC sites to email them.
            – Use the media: call a talk radio program; write a letter to your local paper. If the media outlet is liberal, then talk about economic impact of massive third world immigration.
            – text everybody in your cell phone queue now.
            IF YOU DO OR SAY NOTHING, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM….

          • MikeofAges

            Then he probably is just like most whites, unfortunately. His agenda does not and never did have anything to do with American blacks. He is of and from his adopted home community, the Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. The central political belief of the community going back to the 1950s is the idea that Scandinavian social democracy represents the ideal form of social and political organization. This would mean nothing in a community of less importance, but Hyde Park is one of the most politically activist and influential communities in the United States and the world, actually. When the “regular” political machine needs a little intellectual cachet, it goes to the “independent” Hyde Park organization for a promising candidate. The independents, who predominate maybe two or three of Chicago’s 70 or so neighborhoods, and regulars fight in public and behind the scenes all sleep in the same bed. Only a couple of times since the end of World War II have they actually voted differently in any political race.

            I grew up there, so I know. I knew what this guy was the moment I heard about him. But nothing about him has surprised me, except that he has been so utterly indifferent the economic plight of the rank and file of people of his own color. You can add to that his prating about and pandering to the “middle class”. That surprised me to. But you gotta advance the dialectic, I guess.

          • Thor Bonham

            Agreed …

          • Brian

            The factors you cite would also apply to most whites…which is a large reason for the US’s inability/unwillingness to deal with the problems we talk about here.

          • Anon

            Part of the problem is you are dead wrong about that. Here are the facts:

            http://tinyurl.com/mm4olpe

            As you can clearly see, at least 2/3 of American blacks have an IQ under 90. At best, people like that, come across as “stupid”. But fully half of blacks are under 80 IQ….such people are blatantly retarded. They can’t for example, read to any significant degree. They have trouble engaging life in a first world nation. You’d have trouble understanding them, and, if you do, missing components of thought you take for granted, would make such interaction disturbing. It would be pathetic….except blacks are also violent psychopaths. Over half are retarded by our standards. But also, over half (at least for males) commit a victim based felony over their lifetimes….rape, robbery, murder, felonious assault.

            You are right. You gotta be careful….any time you so much as see a black person. Flip a coin. Heads he’s a retarded, violent mental case. Tails….he’s….well, not bad enough to call retarded and/or hasn’t done something hurt someone.

            It’s far worse outside the western world. A black person, in say, South Africa, could not leave his shanty unattended for more than a day….it would be ripped apart and sold as scrap by his “neighbors”. People chop up little children to make magic trinkets. The rest of africa is worse. The only work anyone seems to do is to wage war to see who gets to steal US food aid. Or, described by someone involved in Catholic Charities….one of the congo warlords was mad he wasn’t attracting enough aid so he sent his men to go out and chop off an arm from every child they could find. His plan worked. And the people he ruled were quite vocal in how HAPPY they were because, now, they could steal from the local aid workers who came.

            This is what black people are. It has never been any different. You read the books by the first whites to come to africa, especially the ones who came to do well by the africans and it is startling how similar blacks behaved back then. No one knows how blacks acted thousands of years ago….because, you see, unlike every other place on earth, africa has no archeology. There are no remains of ancient cities. No ancient tools to discover. No language not brought by the white man. Such a thing can only be interpreted one way (unless ummm, you believe what the blacks do….that they all had magic powers until the white man stole them). Blacks were (and still are) a stone age people. Only able to mimic first and third world nations to the extent they engage in gene theft.

            http://tinyurl.com/l3ouom8

            Go back and take another look at that IQ graph. How many blacks have a “normal” (100) IQ. I’ll be generous and say it’s about 10%. Think about what that means. Only 1 in 10 black people are “normal”. So yeah….like 90% of blacks are “a substandard intellect”.

            But let me raise the bar here. Someone who goes to college…I mean REAL college…gets a degree in something useful, preferably at least a masters degree. An educated person, typically runs an IQ in the 120ish range. How many blacks meet that standard….the type of people who actually contribute to a society in a meaningful degree rather than work a job that requires little more of you than the ability to read, log in and maybe add up some simple numbers.

            It’s almost none. By that standard, yes….every black is a substandard intellect. At best a warm body at a do nothing job. But most are crazy people we keep locked up in our inner cities, high on drugs and fed a steady diet of fast food paid for by the EBT. Because, if we don’t….they umm, burn cities to the ground.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Preachin’ to the choir. I understand the numbers.

            And according to your calculations…he still could be a pretty smart fella.

            Considering he’s half White and his pappy was likely at least American Blackish in IQ, if not a tad higher…it’s not unreasonable to think Obama could be smarter than the average White.

            I’ve seen him in interviews with no teleprompter and his natural reactions, diction, expressed opinions…appear to emanate from a non-farce to me.

            Hey I could be wrong but I’ve had years of experience with our darkie cousins and from time to time I’ve known a few – very few – who are the real deal. Many I’ve known have been charming and sometimes good-hearted average types (upjumped academically because of their color certainly) who desperate White liberals latch onto as some kind of genius, but…

            Don’t think Obama is one of those. He’s not the messiah nor the fabled “magic negro” (that’s Uncle Ruckus, no relation), but I don’t think he’s the empty suit his detractors paint him to be.

            I mean, I understand loyalty to the team and maybe I’m wrong, but as you pointed out…

            If you roll the percentile dice 100 times you’re probably gonna get a 100 one out of a hundred times. He’s the prezzy, you know?

          • Svigor

            Apparently his father was very bright, easily in the top fraction of a percent of all blacks in the world, but don’t quote me on that because I’ve not read much about him.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            Figured that if he attended an American University back then he did represent a smarter than average sub-Saharan.

          • Svigor

            Blacks are very deficient in conscientiousness relative to whites and yellows, so it would make sense that he got into an American U and then flunked out. It would be hard for lightning to strike twice and render a black with a 99.xx percentile intelligence and high conscientiousness.

          • pcmustgo

            There’s actually this very, very gifted Afro-British Black writer (she doesn’t write about race, btw) I follow on the internet from time to time. She looks a little mixed with asian or white to me though. Yes, these people do exist. And many Blacks are gifted at art and music.

          • MikeofAges

            A few years, just observing some people around a scruffy street corner in a town near Seattle, I came to the conclusion that Western society had developed to a point where someone with an IQ less than 100 couldn’t live in it.

            When I told some other people about this idea, they thought I meant that someone with an IQ less than 100 couldn’t get a job that paid them enough to live on. That might be true as well, but that is not quite what I meant. What I was thinking was that it was necessary to have an IQ of at least 100 in order to understand your surroundings and function in them. That would be true regardless of the educational level, income level or occupation of the individual. That would even be true of someone who was homeless.

            Perhaps something like this has always been true, but in the past society offered menial jobs within the immediate community and simple ways to live for slower people. Not anymore.

          • Svigor

            90 IQ might be a better cut-off point. A mean of greater than 90 also seems like the cut-off point for a “reasonably” advanced society. Below that, there don’t seem to be many decent civilizations.

          • MikeofAges

            The number rhetorical and intended to be loose. I was more interested in the issue of what it takes for an individual to navigate around our artificial world. It must be very hard for slower people. As psychologists rate things, IQ from maybe the high 70s to 90 is considered dull normal. An IQ range from about 70 (and that’s being generous) up to the high 70s is described as dull or slow. below that is retarded.

            A society with a median IQ of 90 could sustain itself if it was provided with the necessities from outside, or if part of the population was much higher in ability than the norm.

            Overall, a median IQ of 100 is needed to develop and sustain an advanced civilization and allow it to continue to progress. That, I think, is because you will not produce in your population the extremes of exceptional abilities needed to create an advanced civilization unless your median is about 100. The exception, as noted, would a heterogeneous (diverse) society in which there were some groups with higher ability. That is the United States today, and what is called the “Brazil” model.

          • pcmustgo

            I’ve known many smart blacks who just get into the race-baiting, hating whites thing too… So a good chunk of smart blacks are just Africana studies majors type with an aggressive chip on their shoulder. All they do is write about Race, etc.

          • The smarter blacks are very often insanely jealous of the fact that whites are required to keep the country running.

          • Brian

            You are exaggerating a little. The avg. black American IQ is 85, not 80. With a standard deviation of 12 (15 for whites), that puts 16-17% of them above 100 IQ, not 10%.

          • fuzzypook

            I remember reading a newspaper article, before he was elected the first time, that claimed his IQ is 128. I remember that because that is what my IQ is. I don’t believe it for a minute though.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            I’ve consistently rated around the same. I can see it, though. Maybe. Again, if a random sampling of blacks results in 1% being of that level…I’d expect that the guy who made it to the presidency would be more than 1% likely to be that smart regardless of circumstances real or imagined.

          • Svigor

            Is 128 really the 99th percentile for blacks? Seems like it would be much higher, like 99.75th or so.

          • Assume 85 median 15 SD. 99% of the area of the bell curve is to the left of M+2.33 SD. 85+(2.33*15) = 119.95. So 120 IQ puts you in the top single percentile of American blacks.

            128 IQ is 43 points or 2.866 SD above the median, therefore, is in the top 0.21 percentile.

          • Svigor

            Hey, not a bad guess! I was only off by .04. 😉

          • Brian

            I think the black US std. dev. is actually 12, which would put him in more rarefied territory. Of course the mulatto aspect complicates it some.

          • M 85 SD 12 means 121 is exactly M+3 SD. Meaning 121 or higher is top 0.13 %ile. The top single percentile is only 113 or above.

          • Brian

            130 is 98th percentile for whites. So for blacks, 128… yeah, you’re about right.

          • Thor Bonham

            Huh ? You live under a rock ?

          • Steven Bannister

            Sorry, but you can’t be a “verbal magician” and also have an IQ of 95. Verbal intelligence and high IQ are linked.

            If Phillipe Ruston were still here, he’d tell us that “g” stands for general intelligence and it measures cognitive ability across the spectrum. In other words, someone who has the intelligence to speak well also has the intelligence to read well, think well, understand complex concepts, etc.

            Obama IS smart, probably around a 120 IQ or higher.

          • Luca

            Well, since he has locked away all his college transcripts, and every school record of any kind, I guess we’ll never know what kind of a genius he is.

            However, if his track record, rather than his speeches, were an indicator, I would say he is borderline mongoloid.

            Remember this, IQ alone does not carry the day. There have been many smart, articulate fools, Ted Kennedy comes to mind as well as Noam Chomsky, and Bill Ayers. It is unfortunate that those who are accomplished speakers may not always be accomplished at any thing else of redeeming value.

            On the other hand, I have known many people of sub-average IQ, who had common sense, a moral compass and were rational, responsible, honest people. I will take these any day of the week over a high IQ idiot.

            The only concepts he seems to understand are liberalism and socialism. He understands nothing because his ego and “the agenda” blocks out all rational thought.

          • Svigor

            No, but there are many instances of people having highly-bifurcated verbal and performance scores.

          • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

            Verbal magician? The real Obama was on display in the first debate with Mitt Romney. 95 IQ is about right, but he’s useless without a teleprompter. Any magic present is because his followers want to believe.

          • Svigor

            His IQ is probably around 120-125, which is typical for presidents. The ceiling on his IQ is 130 or so, since he did not win a National Merit Scholarship despite being immersed in a culture of PSAT/SAT preparedness (i.e., he almost certainly took the PSAT).

          • pcmustgo

            It’s amazing how intelligence can be very much devote to certain topics and specialized. I would imagine there are certain 160 IQ geniuses who know nothing of what we speak of here on amren… know nothing about other cultures. Know nothing about the topics we are interested in.

          • Svigor

            You’re confusing knowledge with intelligence. Best guess is that intelligence is not specialized. “G” refers to general intelligence, i.e., an adaptable general problem-solving and abstracting ability.

          • stewball

        Yes, and Barry also said we have 57 states.

      • Brian

        I think that just means that America (unfortunately) has more Muslims than many Muslim countries, in the same way that Australia has more Greeks than anywhere outside of Greece itself.

    • Katherine McChesney

      One truthful statement doesn’t make him intelligent.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        Nah. Look, I’m on our side but I can pick out an idiot pretty pretty quickly and he’s not. Again, not claiming he’s a genius, just saying that whatever the average IQ of his peeps…

        1. There are curve blowers and…

        2. He’s one.

        • CoweringCoward

          He is a “blower” (of sorts) anyway. I don’t see him a blower of curves but what he is a blower of starts with a “C” as will.

          • NeanderthalDNA

            If it makes you feel better, go with it. Perhaps you’re right.

    • So CAL Snowman

      No way buddy, Obama is about as intelligent as my toilet seat. He is decent at reading a teleprompter, nothing more nothing less.

      • pcmustgo

        There’s intelligence and IQ and then there’s the desire to learn and intellectual curiosity. I have smart white liberal friends who are gifted writers, self-described buhddists who had no idea buhddists are at war with muslims in other parts of the world. Who know nothing about the Koran. Smart white liberals block out a lot of info and if you only get your info from liberal sources, you just won’t end up being very informed.

    • Anon

      He is exactly what I typically mean when I use the word idiot. I’d estimate his IQ at about 90. Not quite mentally deficient, but not normal either. Further, he is a blatant crackhead. I spent years working community mental health attached to an addictions unit for Cook County. I KNOW crackheads, lol. I have seen Obama, like a dozen times now, obviously high on crack, on TV these last few years. His behavior is so stereotypical he might as well be Dave Chapelle playing his “ashy crackhead” character. Slurring and mumbling and getting bizarre, basic things wrong…like his own birthday…..or who can forget his getting the number of US states wrong.

      This is WHY he doesn’t get along with anyone. Addicts, of all types, are snappy, paranoid and easily offended.

      If I thought for one moment Obama was actually in charge, I’d say its time to overthrow the government. It would be too weak to defend itself from even a handful of people just showing up and saying, OK, we’re in charge now.

      Of course, he is not. Our government is despotic and dysfunctional….but not THAT far….not yet at least. If it was, we’d have zimbabwe style hyperinflation as people basically abandoned our way of life.

      That’s probably what you mean by “he” is not an idiot. Well, Obama most certainly is. But let’s be honest here…..”he” doesn’t actually make many decisions. He’s more of a puppet than Reagan was when the Alzheimer’s wiped out his ability to do more than just smile for the cameras.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        I don’t think making up stuff or repeating made up stuff helps our cause. When we say we believe there are differences between the races and that one race’s pathology is not related to another’s turpitude, we have Truth on our side.

        When we repeat salacious and dubious smear rumors or resort to shady ad hominum attacks we are engaged in duplicity.

        I just don’t think it helps our cause. Perhaps makes some feel better, but does not change anything. Makes us look kooky.

      • pcmustgo

        A lot of smart people do drugs too… wealthy people.

    • NoMosqueHere

      When Barry leaves office, stories about his on the job drug use will come out; the media is protecting their “fair haired boy.” Insiders say he’s bored with the job. Really? He’s bored with being president of the United States? I would say he’s just stoned; druggies are bored with real work and prefer performing and affectation.

      • NeanderthalDNA

        See my response to Anon. If you are right then “Yay team!” But if you are wrong you will just look foolish. We don’t need to engage in this type of speculation to win. In fact, if anything, it makes us look…petty and kooky.

        Unless it turns out to be true, of course!

  • pcmustgo

    That’s because professional Blacks and the professional Left have been giving Obama a hard time the past few years. And we all know who Obama the Narcissist does like- Himself!

    • Narcissism is a homosexual characteristic.

  • pcmustgo

    I don’t think Obama cares about Blacks or Whites… he’s just a full blown Narcissist who acted the part of the black racist/grudgy black to get ahead socially and politically among other Blacks. It would make sense he does not feel comfortable around real blacks because culturally he is mostly a white guy.

    • Jefferson

      Obama once said in a interview that one of his favorite television shows growing up was “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”.

      That would make Obama a Whitewashed Brotha because in the 1970s almost no Black person was watching Mary Tyler Moore because its as White as the show “Friends”.

      Black folks in the 1970s only watched “Soul Train” and “Good Times”. I doubt Mary Tyler Moore has a lot of Black fans besides Obama.

      • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

        Oprah had MTM on her show and gushed. Blacks who fancy themselves as intellectuals probably liked the show.

      • IstvanIN

        The black guy from MTM became the father on Good Times.

      • pcmustgo

        His accent is so (bland) midwestern white guy. It sounds odd on a black man, even a mixed one. It’s so milk and cookies.

    • stewball

  • Andy

    Why was he a member of the CBC if he dislikes it so much?

    • sbuffalonative

      1) Go along to get head. 2) They wield political clout. 3) Actually dealing with them showed him they were ‘professional blacks’ and he came to despise them. Which goes to what I always say, being around blacks makes you not want to be around blacks.

  • Sensitivity Training

    Rubbish. Utter rubbish. Obama knows how powerful professional blacks are in Transforming America into Diversity Rule Never Ending.

    They are all on the same team fighting against the most hate enemy- your White privilege.

    • KittyAmerica

      I don’t believe for a minute that he dislikes them as much as he despises the Tea Party.

      • President Oogabooga doesn’t “despise” the Tea Party; he feels threatened by it. The Tea Party ideology centers on putting government on a limited budget. This is the last thing a black Democrat welfare-entitlement-gibs-me-dat hack would like. To Barack Hussein Orangutan, the Tea Party represents whites looking out for their own interests, while what he wants to do is spend more of our money.

        • NeanderthalDNA

          President Oogabooga? I call him “the prezzy”. But that’s pretty good too.

        • The House Republicans are the only thing between Obama and him getting everything he wants. The Tea Party Movement is the only thing keeping many House Republicans from doing what Republicans do best, caving and being surrender monkeys.

          Therefore…

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Hate everything? HA HA! Nice.

      You have the God given, constitutionally mandated right to be EVIL!

      If we Whites are so EVIL…maybe we should go with it, you know? Strut it…

  • Dave4088

    Well that’s rich because Obama’s acted like an entitled, professional black person throughout his entire presidency. In fact, he was a professional black race hustler in Chi town before ascending to state and national politics.

    • libertarian1234

      “…..he was a professional black race hustler in Chi town before ascending to state and national politics….”

      And concerned with nothing but blacks and black issues. That’s why I think the book is no more than a farce.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Pastor Manning calls him a ‘long legged mac daddy’. I trust that assessment more than any I’ve read so far her.

  • WmarkW

    Unlike a lot of other people, I never developed either a fawning love or deep hatred of Obama. He’s just a Democratic party politician. The administration wouldn’t be significantly different if Hilary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry or Harry Reid was running it.

    • Svigor

      I have to agree. My feelings for him do not go any further than contempt. He’s just some empty suit elevated far beyond what he would enjoy otherwise because he’s black and Americans suffer from racial psychosis.

      I have to disagree with the “no significant difference,” though. 1, the guy’s not a political animal. He’s a loner (as well as supremely arrogant and not particularly competent), which is a bad thing in a president. 2, the media’s balls shrivel to the size of chickpeas in the face of his blackness, so they refuse to call him on anything.

  • Dave4088

    The last I checked the Congressional congoid caucus, Al Shapton or any other professional negro persons or groups have not been harassed or audited like the Tea Party.

  • Puggg

    Jesse Jackson Senior once threatened to cut Obama’s n**s off.

    Remember, most of these black figures mentioned here wanted Hillary and not Obama to be the Democratic nominee at first.

    I think Obama sees himself as a white leftist with dark skin, and not really that black.

    • Oogabooga self-identified as “black” on the federal census.

    • Dave4088

      No, in his ghost written autobiography he clearly identifies as black and with blacks in the so called black struggle against the dastardly white man. He also attended a church that could be described as Afrocentrism on steroids, so I don’t think Barry is in any way confused about who he is and what he believes.

      • pcmustgo

        He only attended that church because he lost an election for “not being Black enough” in Chicago… and Michelle… Regardless, he’s just a narcissist and he doesn’t care about anything but himself.

    • Svigor

      You could definitely make a case for that statement.

  • Spartacus

    You know, the current president of my country is a mentally ill cleptocrat who, among other things, mugged a journalist live on TV. That being said – I still wouldn’t trade him for Obama.

      • Spartacus

        No, it was a female journalist who was asking him a question, and he just ripped her phone out of her hand. When she asked for it back, he said “I didn’t steal it, I took it.” . He’s a real genius…

    • IstvanIN

      Traian Băsescu? Mugged someone on TV?

And that apart from being filmed punching a ten year old in the face, selling Romania’s Commercial Fleet for less than I spent on socks this year, giving himself a villa while he was mayor of Bucuresti…. And I could go on, but point is – he’s still better than Obama. Or less bad, at least….

  • Lord_Steven_Regal

    This claim is BS. Obama has surrounded himself with blacks who are obsessed with blackness and alleged white racism. His wife is a professional black. His longtime pastor is a professional black. His childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a professional black. His mentor at law school, Derrick Bell, was a professional black. Obama’s Attorney General is a professional black. And, foremost, Obama himself is a professional black.

    Obama is a professional actor. He’s whatever he needs to be at the moment. Like an empty hour glass, he has no sand whatsoever.

  • MikeofAges

    I’ve speculated that the reason no one remembers him at Columbia is because he wasn’t there most of the time. Maybe he was doing something else and getting credit put on his transcript for it. He was potentially a useful young man. He could pass himself off as an American, a Commonwealth subject, an Indonesian, a Christian, a Muslim, an upper middle class Western secularist. He apparently was fluent in an exotic language as well. In return for his “work” the problems with his citizenship could have been “taken care of”. That might be why he doesn’t want to release any information and no one in any high place ever wanted to expose him.

    Would have never been an issue if he had merely become a lawyer or an academic. Or stayed within the realm of elected offices below the level of the national ticket. No one ever anticipated him becoming president.

  • Thor Bonham

    “Obama Has ‘Close to Zero’ Patience for ‘Professional Blacks’” ..

He tried to delete the images but it didn’t work, and he was then recorded telling his wife in the car “Did you see how aggressive this filthy gypsy was?”

    I mean…I get the attitudes toward him by many here. I think my “race realist creds”, based on my commentary here, should be pretty solid, but…

    The key to our struggle is the dissemination not of shady propaganda but of Truth. I understand the infuriating propensity of liblefty Whites fawning over the most meager of intellectual accomplishments on the part of Blacks, elevating slightly above average to genius and all, and I do not think he qualifies for “genius”, but…

    He is at LEAST average IQ in my estimation, higher I suspect. But I have NO proof. The best arguments his detractors have presented here are the shadiness of documentation, but I’ll have to look closer at that.

    The big point is that we should remember that exceptions exist to every rule but one, and this ain’t that rule.

    A significant fraction of blacks have IQs above the white mean. Maybe 1/6th? I’m going by memory but don’t quote me because I’m not at all sure. Point is, there are plenty of blacks with IQs above the white mean. Doesn’t change the fact that the black mean is way below the white mean, or that the white mean seems to be well below what is required for basic numeracy…

    • Brian

      1/7 of American blacks have triple-digit IQ.

  • emiledurk16

    He’s probably a smart guy, Rich, but I attribute most of that to his being 1/2 white.

  • Svigor

    You’re confused. The media doesn’t put out “he’s smart” propaganda. They put out “he’s brilliant!” propaganda. Big difference. The data is consistent with a “he’s smart” evaluation, not a “he’s brilliant!” evaluation. It is consistent with a “he’s brilliant! – for a groid” evaluation, which could very well be the subtext of the media’s propaganda.

  • Banished from the White House? That’s hilarious! Not only is he not the first black President, Je$$e can’t even make a nuisance out of himself by going there and pretending to be important while chasing TV cameras.

  • Your comments neatly explain why the critter is so dependent on a teleprompter. He’s an empty suit.

  • pcmustgo

    He only hung out with whites and creepy muslim pakistanis in college and grad school. He basically “became Black” around age 28. Then again, that’s about the same time I switched sides and became a race realist in full.

  • University-educated parents and a middle-class upbringing in Hawaii don’t seem very “Authentic Black” to me, either. For instance, I doubt his high school was ever locked down due to rioting students.

  • dd121

    Why is everyone referring to Obama as a high IQ black? He’s half black, a mulatto. His father was a 3rd rate African Communist agitator. His mother was a phd anthropologist trollop. Whatever IQ he has come from his mother. And it is almost certainly lower than her’s.

    If that article is true, Obama is a tad better than I thought. I still despise his advocacy of illegal immigration, his horrid Unaffordable Health Care Act, and his war mongering. But if he doesn’t care for Jesse Jackson Jr. and Charlie Rangel he has some redeeming qualities.

  • Svigor

    Yeah, like Mark above I find all the stuff from conservatives about the diabolical evil genius/retard Obama to be laughable. He’s just some affirmative action hack from Chicago. A nobody who’s never run so much as a lemonade stand. The only thing remarkable about him is how far his blackness got him in dying-to-elevate-a-clean-groid American politics. His election says far more about how nuts white libs are than it does about any of his non-melanin-related qualities.

  • Svigor

    Again, that mulatto chosen one schtick rings truer than the professional black stuff, to me. A stuffed shirt AA baby with a head puffed up like a bobble-doll.

    That’s probably what I find so ironic about all the people above swearing that Obama can’t have an IQ of 120, be smarter than the average white, etc. LOL. Like a 120 IQ is rare, or something. There are millions of them in America alone. America is awash in 120 IQ nobodies. At the highest reaches of American power, people with 120 IQs bring in the coffee.
