Are You Smarter Than the President?

Are You Smarter Than the President?


Are you smarter than the smartest man ever to occupy the White House?
  • Have you learned Austrian?
  • Have you ridden on the Intercontinental Railroad?
  • Do you know what year the 1936 Olympics was held?
Test your knowledge against the legendary genius of Barack Obama! On October 10, 2008, CNN commentator Julian E. Zelizer referred to Obama as “the presidential candidate who is the intellectual in the contest.” Historian Micheal Beschloss told radio host Don Imus essentially the same thing:
Michael Beschloss: “…this is a guy (Barack Obama) whose IQ is off the charts…”
Imus: “Well. What is his IQ?”
Historian Michael Beschloss: “Pardon?”
Imus: “What is his IQ?”
Historian Michael Beschloss: “Uh. I would say it’s probably – he’s probably the smartest guy ever to become President.”
- The Don Imus Show, November 18, 2008

On June 14, 2011, Chris Matthews claimed Barack Obama has a Mensa-qualifying IQ of 160. And, according to Jodi Cantor’s book, The Obamas, Barack makes the same claims about himself:
“When David Plouffe, [Obama’s] campaign manager, first interviewed for a job with him in 2006, the senator gave him a warning. ‘I think I could probably do every job on the campaign better than the people I’ll hire to do it.’ … Obama said nearly the same thing to Patrick Gaspard, whom he hired to be the campaign’s political director. ‘I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.’” (p. 66)

As further evidence of his brilliance, consider his college grades, his SAT and LSAT scores. None of these are available to the public. His natural transparency in this regard is undeniably a sign of his extremely high intelligence matched with a superior and saintly modesty.

In over one hundred and sixty pages, we ask you to answer questions as Barack Hussein Obama would. Naturally, this is impossible because you are only you, while Barack is... well.. he is Barack. Obviously, he is superior to you.

But Barack decided to give you a sporting chance to match whatever wits you might manage to gather together against his superior intellect. If you can answer even a dozen of these questions as well as Barack already has, you can count yourself lucky to be so undeservedly honored. And if you can’t... well... mess with the best, lose like the rest. Just take a number and join the line of crushed contenders.

Are you ready for a bruising?

Then let’s go!


  1. He must be smarter than I am. I thought there were only 50 states and he said there are 57. And I always thought it was Marine Corps but he says Marine Corpse. But unless and until he releases his college transcripts I guess we will never know.

    There is one area in which many people are smarter than the little Marxist...that is in regards to knowing and telling the truth. I'm not sure he'd recognize the truth if it jumped up and bit him on his a - -.

  2. It reminds me of the story of a British MP who tried to register a question to ask in the House.
    It was: "How many victims of incest in the year X were related to the accused"
    He was told to go away and think about it.

  3. I'm tempted to get this too. In fact, it looks like one to have our library order, which they're always happy to do upon request. I checked Amazon and they have no such book. Maybe it's not been published yet? Or is this a joke that I'm not getting?

  4. I think you can only get it from Bridegroom Press - click on the image of the book, and it should take you to the site.
