This was a trick quiz. All of the correct answers are the same person. Each of these quotes are directly from President Barack Obama. And now you know why he brings his teleprompter with him everywhere he goes...even when talking to a 6th grade class.

And some members of the media continue to insist he is "The smartest man ever elected to the Presidency".

The media was relentless in its coverage of GWB's mistakes. You just won't see the mainstream media covering all of BHO's gaffes.

Once the teleprompters are gone, his buffoon-ness shines through.
