Who wants a smart president?

Does it matter that a president is smarter than the American public? Should we strive for intelligence? I believe that Barack Obama is VERY intelligent- as well as I believe Bush is intelligent too. I think the whole cowboy crap was a ploy to get elected and his ratings up. In the end he showed that he could be a decent president but by then it was too late. Who wants a smart president?

  • I definitely want a smart president. I could never understand the people who voted for Bush because he seemed "like a regular guy I could have a beer with". I don't want a regular guy in charge, I want an exceptional president not an average one.

  • Well, I guess I want a smart president. I also want one that is down to earth. I don't like elitists. It's nice to see a president do their own yard work. Tells me that they don't think they are too good for humble work.
