    Al Gore on Obama

    So Al Gore explains that Obama's poor performance was due to the 5000' elevation in Denver and arriving too late to acclimate. "Obama arrived at 2:00PM that day while Romney did his debate prep there". Obama must have been feeling lighter headed than usual.

    Realizing that Obama is "the smartest" man ever elected president based on his reported IQ. Of course his narcissistic personality and flat arrogance probably had nothing to do with it.

    Is that the best that Gore can do?

    I've been to Denver many times on business. Unless you walk off the plane and immediately take part in an Ironman competition, the altitude is nothing.

    My Al Gore story.......Wifey and I were headed to Phoenix for the Spring Grand and the Winter Chain shooting, changing planes in Minneapolis. We got aboard the non stop flight to PHX, and the plane went to the side of the taxiway and sat there for 4 hours.

    4 hours of listening to babies cry, giddy teenagers right next to me yakking, and no explanation. Finally took off, and when we were about half way through the Pilot cam on the PA apologizing for the delay. He made a very nasty remark about Air Force one in his announcement, I can't remember the wording.

    So when we got to Sky Harbor there were people on the floor in sleeping bags, and the place was packed at 12:30 AM.

    Turns out the held all flights inbound because Al Gore was going to fly out, and they did not want any people in the airport when he walked through. Mind you , Luke AFB is 3 minutes away from there, and he could have all the security in the world. this was an arrogant power play, just a touch of the whip for the peons to know who was elite.

    Ever since then he is one of the folks I would like to stick a pencil in their eyeball.

    I can only assume Gore was himself in a high altitude environment when he came up with this dilly of a theory.

    Once again Al Gore proves beyond the shadow of a doubt, that his picture should appear in the Oxford English Dictionary next to the word "Idiot".

    I think Obama's poor performance was more a result of attitude than altitude. He is lazy, has a know it all attitude and probably thought he didn't have to prepare for the debate.

    Gee, all that time Barack spent in Air Force One didn't help? The pressurized altitude in Air Force Force is higher than the altitude in Denver. Barack just can't get a break.

    Gee, in 1 day I flew from Ohio to Denver, rented a car and drove to Dillon, CO (elevation 9,000 ft.) and had no problem with my thinking. Keep in mind this is the same guy who is suspect with his claims of global warming. This is a bunch of crap. BT100dc

    Being in the Aviation Maint. buisness for over 41 years I can tell you that large cabin jet acft. are pressurized to between 6 and 8 thousand ft. Since Denver is only slightly above 5,000 ft.MSL, I assume it had no effect on Obama!!! LOL!

    Look, Al Gore is absolutely correct. Any man, mind you, smart enough to have invened the internet certainly is an expert in high altitude physiology. In fact, he is a modest man. Yeah, that's it, he is modest. That's why Al never told us about the FACT that he has climbed both Everest and K2 without supplemental oxygen in one season. He knows how to prepare for the big mountains and big debates.

    Yeah, that's it, you guys just won't understand that he is smarter, way smarter, than most Air Force Flight surgeons who didn't dial in Air Force 1's pressurizing system. Yeah, that's it...

    Gore probably did a search on "His" internet and came up with this BS.

    Anyone who believes Gore is as stupid as he is. He and Obama has a base that adore them and they get away with anything.

    I think both O and G are near the end of their respective ropes. Even if O wins he won't be strong opposition. There'll be no learning curve for him this time and the press will begin to turn on him. He'll be last years news. You watch.

    Obamas IQ:

    From the information that is available, we know (or can surmise) the following:


    The average IQ for a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in the U.S. is 115. Barack Obama graduated from Columbia University, so the assumption is he must have had at least an IQ of 115.

    Barack Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School; such academic honors are only awarded to students in the top 10% of their class.

    Obama's IQ has been estimated anywhere from 110-165. He is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he served as editor, and later as president of the Harvard Law Review; which is an extremely prestigious position. Obama also taught at the University of Chicago for 12 years, a top-ranked university in the United States. However, these achievement-based estimates fail to account for the possibility that Obama was a beneficiary of affirmative action, which based on collegiate averages would lower his estimated IQ to the 115-120 range. [However, it should be noted that other than partisan claims, there is NO reliable evidence Obama was an affirmative action student, nor is there objective proof that his academic honors had anything to do with affirmative action.]

    Obama attended an elite private school in Honolulu as a scholarship student. Since all of the graduates from that school at that time took collegiate aptitude tests and he was not a National Merit Scholar, Semifinalist, or Outstanding Participant, his maximum possible score on the SAT was 1230, which is the 96.9 percentile. That would translate to a maximum possible IQ of 129. It should be noted, however, that one of the requirements for the National Merit Scholarship is taking the Preliminary SAT test. If Obama did not take the PSAT, he could very well have scored above 1230 on the SAT without being a National Merit Scholar.
    Note: To many professionals in the 'IQ' field , this discussion is utterly absurd. We have no idea what Barack Obama's IQ is, but nobody with even a rudimentary understanding of what IQ means and how it is determined would suggest that any of the estimations methods (school grades and positions held at college) described in the answer have any validity whatsoever.

    Sissy,

    I think Barry is serious, if the "press" makes you, they will break you.

    Barrelbulge is trying to show us a well misunderstood area about intellect.

    Just because a person has a high I.Q. does not make them a leader of people or understand all things.

    You could have a Nuclear scientist as President (and we did)but knew nothing of economics, which he and Obama do not.

    Intelligence quotient:


    An intelligence quotient, or IQ, is a score derived from one of several standardized tests designed to assess intelligence.

    IQ scores have been shown to be associated with such factors as morbidity and mortality, parental social status, and, to a substantial degree, parental IQ.

    While the heritability of IQ has been investigated for nearly a century, there is still debate about the significance of heritability estimates and the mechanisms of inheritance.

    IQ scores are used as predictors of educational achievement, special needs, job performance and income.

    They are also used to study IQ distributions in populations and the correlations between IQ and other variables.

    The average IQ scores for many populations have been rising at an average rate of three points per decade since the early 20th century, a phenomenon called the Flynn effect.

    It is disputed whether these changes in scores reflect real changes in intellectual abilities.

    Well-constructed IQ tests are generally accepted as an accurate measure of intelligence by the scientific community, but a minority continue to contest its efficacy as a metric, claiming instead that IQ represents a type of intelligence.

    Emotional Intelligence


    Emotional intelligence (EI)is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups.

    Various models and definitions have been proposed of which the ability and trait EI models are the most widely accepted in the scientific literature.

    Ability EI is usually measured using maximum performance tests and has stronger relationships with traditional intelligence, whereas trait EI is usually measured using self-report questionnaires and has stronger relationships with personality.

    Criticisms have centered on whether the construct is a real intelligence and whether it has incremental validity over IQ and the Big Five personality dimensions

    The Theory of Multiple Intelligences introduced the idea of multiple intelligences which included both interpersonal intelligence (the capacity to understand the intentions, motivations and desires of other people) and intrapersonal intelligence (the capacity to understand oneself, to appreciate one's feelings, fears and motivations).

    In Gardner's view, traditional types of intelligence, such as IQ, fail to fully explain cognitive ability.

    Thus, even though the names given to the concept varied, there was a common belief that traditional definitions of intelligence were lacking in ability to fully explain performance outcomes.
