Swann hands down

Tough call. It's a tide between Mike Norman and Tom Adkins.

Mike Norman isn't dumb. He was a clone of Peter Schiff back in 2000/01 but decided to become a shill and cheerleader for America. Who the hell knows why but he did. Guys like Swann and Adkins are dumb.

Greg Swann has proven himself time and time again to be the dumbest

I say Kendra Todd has the lowest IQ. She's a real dope who should be struggling as a barista if it wasn't for the housing bubble and Donald Trump

Adkins is the easy winner. As wrong as Norman has been, he at least offers a cogent argument. Adkins is just a bullying windbag in a rather ridiculous package.

Swann, he still reckons Keith was wrong.

You forgot Diane Swonk. Vile shill.

If I HAVE to pick one, I call this one for Tom Adkins.

This is a toughie. I think I'd vote Mike Norman because he's trying to pass himself off as being smart, yet says the dumbest things.

Swann. The man obviously has a high IQ but can't manage his emotions when confronted with facts contrary to his viewpoint. He resorts to cheesy ad hominem attacks rather than reasoned argument. He comes across as a rather nasty human being.

Serin a distant second. And only as a stunt double for the deluded fliptards and specuvestors looking to make a quick buck without possessing even basic math skills. Or logic skills. Or common sense. He is a kind of everyman. And the poor SOB has lost everything in his quest to become rich the lazy way.

Cheers, Haggis

Norman's and Adkin's predictions were both pretty dumb, but that Adkins guy had teh brains to marry the gainfully employed (Shill) Brenda Babe from Fox news.

So Norman takes the prize.

Dopes is not stupid...just arrogant and annoying!

Keep up the contrarian posting Dopes, always good to hear from the other side!

Actually I feel like the stupidest person for missing the free money train....next time if there is one...i will be first in line to take and walk away...
Personal responsibility, there obviously is no such thing...so we call them stupid..but in reality they were the smartest people in the room...they had no intentions of paying back all that borrowed money...so why should we.

Stupidist thing Ever Said-REIC category said...

What an esteemed group to pick from.

A true 'Hall of Shame'

They are all equally guilty and should be punished accordingly.

How about a new poll: instead of "Worlds Greatest Realtor" how about "Stupidist person in the room - REIC Division: (this would exclude George Bush 41 & 43, sorry, but they are so obvious winners in the other categories, it wouldn't be a fair poll to used-house peddlers to include their eligibility).

Any interest?

Adkins looks like a roided out De Groot and both have zippy qualifications so folks should know better.

i give the award to HARVARD's (!!!) Retsinas who wrote in his State of the Nation's Housing in 2006, "...the housing sector continues to benefit from solid job and household growth, recovering rental markets, and strong home price appreciation." and he said this despite the mountain of evidence presented in his own study that the ponzi scheme was over.

brokersleaveyoubroke said...

I vote for DOPES. At least most of the other people on the list made some money during the bubble. DOPES still doesn't think there was a bubble and he thinks the economy is doing great because a lot of people overpaid for an iPhone just so they could be the first on their block to have one.

Casey Serin had bad timing - if he had ben "In and Out" a year earlier, he would have made a nice piece of change. .my vote goes for Greg Swann - The Titanic Captain of the Year Award.

Tom and Connie are the stupidest,

the rest start to mix in a larger and larger portion of lies and corruption.

DOPES should come in a very close second IMHO.

He's probably got a lucrative contract with the Federal Reserve as a PR consultant.

Mike Norman and his keynesian nonsense, hands down.

Frank@Scottsdale-Sucks.com said...

I'd go with DOPES but I do miss his trolling every time the Dow went up 2 points.

Basically anyone in the realtor "profession" has an IQ in the double-digits.

It's nice to meet smart people though like our new neighbors who sold at the peak and have been renting since.

Keith,

You really got us good on this one.

I think Connie De Groot was pretty stupid though. She really had no freaging clue what she was talking about.

I would agree with a previous post about Norman though. Some of these retards are getting paid to lie to the public. And you know what, I bet you most of us would if they paid us well.

Tom Adkins should have a list of his own though. Typical proud american real estate "investor". I would sure like to see his fortunes now days.

tom adkins, look at this video:

Tom Adkins: I'm A Putz.

what unbelievable garbage out of his mouth.

WINGS said...

Adrew Hac was the stupidist because he was an overfed Snapper Turtle that arrogantly tried to cross a hot Georgia Asphalt road in the summer.

He sizzled his little Snapper feet to a crisp, and was run over and smashed into a pulp by an Americano truck driver.

Dumb ass, fat little Snapper.

adkins is a retard.

Dopes is a dope

Norman is an arrogant jerk,

I'll have to go with Todd.

Anonymous said...

ADKINS by far. His most asinine bloviation was when he blamed fuel prices on the housing downturn.

And he looks like a cartoon character.

Kendra Todd gets my vote.

Aside from a spectacular set of cupcakes, she has no assets whatsoever.

And when she went around the country, spreading her... er...selling her book with the phrase "bubbles are for bathtubs!" like it was the cleverest thing ever said...

Its hard to find anybody more stupid than that.

Lady, bubble are also for filling the space between you ears, or pumping up your stunt tits. fyi.

Paul E. Math said...

As dumb as Adkins, Kendra and Connie are, my vote goes to Casey Serin.

Casey is the moron that lapped up the pablum that the others were spewing. Who is the greater fool: the fool or the fool who follows the fool? I'd say it's the fool who follows and that's Casey Serin.
