Don't repeat mistake with Obama election

info@islandpacket.comNovember 4, 2012 

When I ask supporters of President Barack Obama what his biggest accomplishment was before the 2008 election, nobody can give me an answer.

They all say they voted for him because he was so smart and because of what he promised to do if elected.

When I ask them what they were basing his intellect on, they all just say he is smart. When I inform these people that his high school grades and SAT scores were so low they wouldn't qualify for a junior college they say I don't know what I'm talking about. I asked them why, if he were so smart, did he spend money to hide his high school and college transcripts, bar exam, LSAT scores, etc? You would think someone so bright would love to show his scholastic accomplishments, not hide them.

Obama never accomplished anything, was ranked in the very bottom of Congress, according to Politico. Sen. John McCain, who was rated one of the most effective in Congress, went to one of the finest colleges in the country and has a transcript to support it and was a war hero, while Obama had questionable draft status at best, Obama was a huge mistake and lets don't make it again.
