"I just want a reality check regarding the presidential qualifications of those posting on this website, so that I can determine how to compare their opinion versus that of Barack Obama."

With all due respect it appears to me that the intent of your OP was to determine whether or not you found the views of others here at DU worthy of consideration. You have implied that those who do not have Obama's credentials are not permitted to question his decisions, policies and actions. If that were true then there would have been no need of any of those folks to vote - seeing as how they lacked the credentials to be able to make a good decision.

I might also suggest that "presidential qualificantions" encompass the qualifications of some forty-four different individuals in our nation's history and cannot be defined exclusively by the qualifications of Barack Obama.

I call bullshit on your elitism and on your efforts to denigrate the opinions of others here..
