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.
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.
As observable Obama's IQ is clearly over the standard for any classification of mental retardation IQ.

The definition I was going to use is a foolish person, from the same dictionary as yours.
Obama has made some very foolish mistakes in his presidency. A few of which are, the economic stimulus, the healthcare reform, and the changing of welfare. He tried to make this country into a socialistic country. Socialism may sound good on paper, but doesn't work with people. Too many will try to sit on their backs and do nothing, which will cause the society to collapse. I am only debating his foolishness in running the country.
My opponent concedes no evidence that proves Obama is mentally retarted...........
An idiot is.............................. A PERSON AFFECTED WITH EXTREME MENTAL RETARDATION........
He did not state that I had to use his definition for this argument.
I have already stated my arguments, and gaves sources. You did not, therefore my definitions are more reliable.
