Obama Gives Himself B+

This is how completely out-of-touch with reality Obama is.

In the latest Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll, only 24% of American voters Strongly Approve of the way that Obama is performing his role as president ,42% Strongly Disapprove, which gives Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18. (H/t GiovanniWorld member Steve!)

And yet, last night, in ABC’s “Oprah’s White House Christmas Special,” which I didn’t watch, Obama gave himself a “good, solid B-plus” for his first 11 months as president. Ha ha ha….

Obama credited his administration with getting the economy on track, winding down the Iraq war and making the right call for a temporary surge in Afghanistan. He also said America has “reset” its prestige in the world and made progress toward halting development of nuclear weapons in Iran and North Korea!!! Like a typical self-deluded narcissist, Obama also said that passage of health care reform would boost his grade to an A-. With false humility, he said until Americans get back to work, “I can’t give myself the grade I’d like” — which no doubt is an A+!

Obama is a perfect example of the Downing effect. Psychologist C. L. Downing conducted the first cross cultural studies on perceived intelligence and found that our ability to estimate our own and others’ intelligence is proportional to our own intelligence.

This means the lower the IQ score of an individual, the less capably he or she can appreciate and accurately appraise others’ intelligence. The lower someone’s IQ, the more likely he is to rate himself as more intelligent than those around him. Put in simple language, stupid people tend to overestimate their intelligence, and think of themselves as much smarter than they really are. 

In Obama’s case, his inflated self-assessment is also exacerbated by his gender. British psychologist Adrian Furnham found that there is also a disparity between actual IQ and perceived IQ between genders: men are prone to overestimate their intelligence by around 5 points while women are likely to underestimate their IQ by a similar proportion.

New York Daily News has a poll for you to grade Obama. To grade Obama, go HERE. I voted about 15 minutes ago, and the results were:

A 7%

B+ 9%

B 6%

C 8%

D 17%

F 53%

Needless to say, my grade for Obama is an F!

As narcissistic as he is, I wonder why he didn’t give himself an A+?

Okay, Gio, how did you get the snowflakes onto your blog? At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. 🙂

That’s what I meant by “false humility”!

WordPress generates these delightful snowflakes during the Christmas season.

I watched about 25 minutes of Oprah’s show before I turned it off in disgust. I wanted to see if the White House decorations @ Christmas were as atrocious as I thought they would be. Nothing religious on any tree! This was NOT a show about Christmas. It was an Obama infomercial, and America is not buying. That man is so puffed up w/ himself!!!! Gio–love the snowflakes.

What a tool…this man knows no humility…

Couple good ones from twitter today: solidbplus: Three Mile Island reactor operator got a solid B+ on final performance review…We could all give ourselves any grades we want to if we keep our actual solid academic records hidden…Congress just gave ACORN a #solidBplus. funny stuff there…
