White House, Bob Schieffer of CBSNews Blast Questions About Obama's Grades as "Nonsense," Racism, Respectively

Nonsense? I've got facts. Reported by the Harvard Crimson and Reuters.

What do you have? You have assumptions.

We know this is nonsense," Jarrett said on SiriusXM Radio's The Joe Madison Show. "He's almost 50 years old and he's president of the United States and I don't think anybody would debate his intelligence and so now we need to get serious."

We wouldn't have to debate it at all if you didn't hide the record.

Jarrett's foray into the conversation follows CBS anchor Bob Schieffer's accusation that Trump's comments are racist.

"That's just code for saying he got into law school because he's black," Schieffer said on the CBS Evening News Wednesday. "This is an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing."

Let me ask this, seriously: Is what the liberals ask of the rest of us to not only support a racial-preference regime but then to simultaneously pretend we do not know that regime is in operation?

Because it sure sounds like Schieffert's saying that.

On one hand, Obama, we know that Harvard Law instituted a strong policy on affirmative action for law review right before Obama got there.

Obama himself wrote, while at Harvard, that he had undoubtedly benefited from Affirmative Action.

Via Kaus (see end of post).

Now, did he or did he not benefit?

He says he did.

Am I racist for taking his word for it? Is Bob Schieffert not a racist for implicitly calling him a liar?

The liberals want us to do double-think where with the one hand we give minority applicants +10% on their applications but with the other hand we're supposed to wipe our memories clean of this action so we don't even know we just did it.

The question is not whether he's dumb. He's not dumb. The question is whether he's especially smart, which he does not appear to be, or just above average intelligence and out of his depth, which he does appear to be.

And grades and SATs, while not perfect indicators, are at least a bit more objective than Chris Matthews' personal assessment of Obama as a genius.
