Hey, Sports Fans!

A "White House 'insider'" on a president who "watches a lot of television – ESPN mainly" — How Smart is Obama? More:
    I’ll tell you this – if you want to see President Obama get excited about a conversation, turn it to sports. That gets him interested. You start talking about Congress, or some policy, and he just kinda turns off. It’s really very strange. I mean, we were all led to believe that this guy was some kind of intellectual giant, right? Ivy League and all that. Well, that is not what I saw. Barack Obama doesn’t have a whole lot of intellectual curiosity.
That was one of the main critiques of his predecessor, that he "doesn’t have a whole lot of intellectual curiosity," was it not? Mr. Obama is no dummy, and neither was Mr. Bush. They're both just mediocre, "sports fans" like most Americans.
