Who is behind these ads?: I think that it is an attempt to make Obama look smarter

I wouldn't be surprised if it was someone such as Soros. These types of ads were up frequently before the election. Palin was given a low score and Obama a high one. It is subliminal at the very least, and Obama won't even release his college transcripts.

The quiz site is here. If someone can do the leg work about who is behind this, it would be appreciated.

Considering that everyone on the left says he's a genius, an IQ of 128 would be quite a bit low of that. McCain is supposed to be around 138, Bush 130 and the Clintons around 140 (I've heard Jack Kennedy was around 118). What does it all mean? Nothing really. Success in life is not necessarily correlated to IQ. Take it from someone that scored better than most of these... If that is the case, Michael Langon should be president. On the other hand, most people don't know what a high or genius IQ is, and I am sure Soros would like to bolster Obama's alleged superiority. Scroll down and see the various scores:

We need to remind them all that the IQ of 100 is an average, and there's a bell curve draping away on either side of it.

I'd be rather surprised, and even a bit frightened, if we should elect to the US Presidency someone with less than, say 120. In that context, Obama hasn't a lot to crow about. 120 would be the entry cost to play in that league at all, and the remaining 8 points is pocket change.

And isn't G W Bush's IQ even higher?

Show me a successful and ethical politician with IQ in the 160's and I'll pay attention. At some point either the "ethical" or the "successful" or even the higher IQ itself would dissuade one from seeking the office. Better lives can be made and better results gotten elsewhere.

IQ scores aside, is this blog not about actual IQ's, but perhaps how percieved IQ scores may affect the outcome of an election?

Many a time, did I see ads that stated Joe Bidens IQ as 140, while stating that Sarah Palin's was so much lower. Within that context, I must wonder what the purpose of said ads were.

Was this not a means to shift peoples perceptions about candidates?

The actual IQ scores of the candidates was obviously untruthful. It is the electorates perception that matters here, hence the ads themselves.

We should not focus on IQ scores alone, but what was conveyed by these ads, and why it was done the way it was.

To say that Barack Hussein Obama has a very high IQ score, would be subject to argument. To say that Sarah Palin has a low IQ score would be wrong. To say that Joe Biden has a very high IQ score, is questionable.

I base my conclusion about this by way of what I perceived from each candidate, and not by means of propaganda.

BHO was slick. That in and of itself does not convey actual intelligence. Just a method by which to succeed.

Sarah Palin either has common sense, or I am an idiot.

Joe Biden hasn't a clue one! He lacks the ability to think before he speaks, and yet he has an IQ of 140, as stated by these ads?

I have worked with many an engineer, whom was looked upon as a genius. To apply that definition to them, would be quite wrong in my opinion.

Dazzling others, by means of applying recalled information, that we have all heard about, but yet do not understand is deceitful, and a trap by which many fall into.

Applying recalled information, when it is timely to do so, and knowing when to do it, does not convey intelligence. That, in and of itself, is how many get a College Degree.

It's not about IQ. It's about selling ringtones.
