How much do you know without looking it up?
Nothing! I ain't American!
4 out of 10, not bad for a non citizen
I only got 1 correct answer.
Mind you, that's not too bad considering I thought Obama was the President of Armenia.
Same as Dot.
Why don't the questions display on my browser?
Perhaps the BBC site has banned you?
4 out of 10 - and I didn't realize that he had been around for a year already !
Maybe it just doesn't work on such slow speeds.
I'm sorry to distract from the OP. I wish I could just read the questions
from a text version, if I can't fix my problem quickly.
As closely as I follow Obama, I think I would do well.
It requires Flash, but for some reason, after the first four questions, it gave up allowing me to answer any more.
Come on Matilda, do the decent thing and C&P the questions here, so scholar and Leigh can take part in the quiz.
Yes, John can do it, if he ever sobers up.
1 outta 10
7 out of 10, I missed on the social questions. The musician who had not played the WH, what Obama and Michele did on their date and what his code name is. All irrelevant to being President I would say.

He should still take care of the Flash and Java issues though...
3 Defence funding
4 the Bible (Old Testament, I think)
6 a state dinner (it was for India, and there was another uninvited guest as well)
7 Elton John
8 No names are supplied. Carter got the prize, and so did Wilson
9 I disqualify myself, because I was curious and looked it up after Delanti spoke about it
10 I think remember it was about eating, but I'm not sure where. I'll guess it was the ice cream parlor.
You haven't replied to Q8 Scholar
Well, since Carter and Wilson won the prizes, that leaves Roosevelt and Roosevelt as non-winners, I think. But that is not really an Obama question, it dates back to before he was even born a citizen of . . . .
Q1 On his first full day in office President Obama's first executive order dealt with public access to presidential records past and present.
Q2 On February 19, 2009 President Obama made his first trip abroad to Ottawa, Canada.
Q3 The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act became the first legislation President Obama signed into law.
Q4 All three - he ended the speech saying: "The people of the world can live together in peace. We know that is God's vision. Now, that must be our work here on Earth."
Q5 In May 2008 Barack Obama apologised to a reporter for calling her "sweetie", saying it was a "bad habit".
Q6 The Salahis gained access to a state dinner hosted by President Obama on 24 November.
Q7 Elton John is the only one of these performers who has not played at the White House... yet.
Q8 Jimmy Carter, Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt all received the Nobel Peace Prize.
Q9 Barack Obama is called Renegade - Trailblazer was President George W Bush.
Q10 The couple's first date was to the Spike Lee movie Do the Right Thing.
I thought scholar would have done better than that. I got 6 which I thought was not bad for a non-citizen. Delanti did best I think?
As he didn't actually answer question 9, he shouldn't get a point.
What's the point of having a quiz if people are going to cheat?
I could claim that I got 10/10 when I did the quiz for a second time, but that wouldn't count, would it?
I've never thought of you as generous giron - not recently at any rate.
Firm but fair, that's me, in any case scholar scored more than I did, on the other hand, I didn't boast about being an expert on the subject.
BTW, I'm very impressed that you haven't boasted about your score, even though it was the second highest.
Perhaps you could spare some time to give scholar some extra tuition on the subject?
If he doesn't do well, you can make him stay behind in detention, or, as a last resort, give him a jolly good tawsing.
