There's a funny t-shirt seen out and about on people in London that shows President George Bush walking his dog.

But upon closer inspection, you see the dog has had the head of our stupid PM, Tony "Poodle" Blair superimposed on it!

They always bring pointing and laughter by passerbys.

If bush is reelected you will not want to be in possesion of anything like that for the Secret Police to find when they come to "question" you about your dislike of the president.......I smell a whole new cottage industry.... the manufacture of all those new brown shirts alone will bring the North Carolina's textile industry back on line.........Oh happy day!!!!

Ironically, you'll be saying the same thing come November if you stay on your current trajectory.

If,as is asserted, President Bush is an idiot(a hopelessly foolish or senseless person), the American Educational System may indeed need a great shake-up.
President Bush achieved a 1205 score on his SAT.
According to conversion charts, this would mean that President Bush had a IQ of about 120 and would be listed at the 88th percentile of all the SAT takers in the country.
Could it be that the SAT is invalid and that we must pay no attention to it as a measuring instrument?
Perhaps most of the people who have taken the SAT and achieved scores about 1000 are indeed idiots.

It would also seem that august institution known as the Harvard Business School( known as the best and most prestigious business school in the USA when President Bush attended) is also probably corrupt and mismanaged since Bush received an MBA from that school.

I am greatly distressed. I cannot rely on SAT scores or graduation credentials from top flight schools any more when I interview prospective employees.
What criteria are left?

The fact that some very intelligent people do some very foolish, idiotic things does not make thier foolishness excusable or less dangerous. Regardless of Bush's educational credentials - I knew he was daft, but an MBA....jesus - he has made some absolutely abhorrant policy decisions. This is not mere opinion, but rather it is a demonstrable fact. I could run down the obligatory list of stupidity - war on false pretenses, biggest deficit in history, amending the constitution to restrict the rights of gays, etc, etc, etc - but I'm sure you're well aware. Bush is, as far as the facts go, a fool.

It has been a source of no comfort to me that Mr. Bush's SATs and mine are just about identical. (My SAT score was 1226, and my IQ is 125).

The difference is I know I'm not smart enough to be President. Mr. Bush's family connections may have kept him from reaching a similar conclusion.

I most likely couldn't have gotten into Harvard with that SAT score; nor could I have gotten into the National Guard during the Vietnam war. But then, I had no one pulling strings for me.

If memory serves, Mr. Bush did not exactly blaze a trail of glory at Harvard academically. But, of course you know they still call the guy who graduates dead last in his class in medical school "Doctor".

I think if I were you I'd put more emphasis on the "interview" part of the interview and less on the paper trail.

IronLionZion may indeed be correct. However, it is possible she is not correct. There are many people who do not consider President Bush's policies "abhorrant". On November 2, 2004, the American voting public, in their wisdom, will indeed speak up. Then we shall see how many of them agree with IronLionZion's demonstrable facts.
I am very puzzled that IronLionZion, who appears to have a great store of knowledge concering President Bush's "abhorrant policy decisions" did not know that President Bush was a graduate of the Harvard Business School.

Using the words "wisdom" and "American voting public" in the same sentence should be outlawed.

We're talking about the wisdom of a group of people who supported a war in Afghanistan when upwards of 75% of them couldn't locate it on a map; a nation where over 70% of the citizens believed that Saddam Hussien was "personally connected" to Sept 11th; a country where American Idol managed to rake in more viewers than the State of the Union speech.

....and you would have me consider their opinion as being valuble, or somehow indicative of the truth. That is a fallacious appeal to popularity, homie.

The American public is blissfully ignorant and that is precisely why George Bush will be re-elected - he panders to that ignorance with zeal.

I did. I was feigning surprise to make a sarcastic quip.

Oh please, Mr. Greyfan, you do yourself an injustice! You are probably quite bright and could handle far more than you give yourself credit for.

You may not be aware that one of the best "policy wonks" of all time, the incomparable Al Gore, flunked out of Divinity School.

You may not be aware that Senator Bradley had a verbal SAT score far below that of President Bush.

and you may not know that according to Professor Greenstein, who is identified by some as the dean of Presidential Historians in the United States, in his book
"The Presidential Difference" that the president who is conceded to be the most brilliant president of the twentieth century, William Jefferson Clinton, was in Professor Greenstein's opinion--"politically gifted but lacking in emotional soundness".

So, you see sir, it is possible to be the most brilliant of them all yet be judged as a failure because of lack of emotional soundness.

We shall see how the American public judges the abilities of the President and his challenger on Nov. 2, 2004.

I am humbled by the fact that IronLionZion has pointed out that the words "wisdom" and the "American voting public" should not be used in the same sentence.
Indeed, there are some who object to the inclusion of people on the voting rolls who are not property owners, African-Americans and women on the voting rolls.
Alas, I can not be counted among them.

I liked you better when your responses at least came close to making sense.

Try again.
