Red MenaceJohn Kerry got C's at Yale just like Bush. Bush however only received one D, Kerry received five. The chart on the other hand is hard to dispute being that the table was published in the Economist. However, a few issues later on, the Economist published a retraction, saying the data was unable to be verified and possibly a hoax. IQ tests are voluntary as well as confidential and therefore not a just representation of statewide intelligence.

Bushes IQ is proven to be 90.. thats pitiful mine is 130. Kerry would definitly be more fit to handle the job as president. Bush is a tard, Kerry was actually laughing at him when they debated.. It was really pitiful.

And then he lost the election. Who's the 'tard now? I wonder if Bush was laughing at him when the results were announced...

Inyri ForgeYou know all the "promises" they make in their campaign are lies anyway.

And how's that? What promises exactly Bush haven't kept for the people and how? Besides, it depends about the point of view too how you count someone as "liar": all can't be satisfied and the means differ.

I wonder if anyone knows, what kind of person John Kerry is because one media says this, one that and other something else. People should at least try to get their information from various sources.

'Spidergoat'Why?

Even though there really will never be a true separation of Church and State, it is still a little ironic if a religious organization has developed an elaborate political platform. Throughout the rest of the United States (can't say the same for some other countries, so I won't generalize farther) no other religion attempts to sway 'their' voters as much; they just trust them to choose the best candidate without offering political advice from a religious standpoint.

I'm sorry, but when the president of the United States says "too many OB/GYNS arent' allowed to practice there... there love with women all accross their country"-- that suggests to me more than a grammatical error or a speech impediment.
Bushes IQ is proven to be 90.. thats pitiful mine is 130.

And yet, the man is the President of the United States. As I said before, it's kindof admirable to see a man get so much mileage on so little gas. You have an IQ of nearly 150% of his, Orpheo, and yet I seriously doubt you will lead your country in a few decades. In fact, I seriously doubt you even will be capable of leading the country in a better manner than Bush a few decades from now... -EDIT- Forgot one point:

Bush pulls the im religious charade just to get the religous right on his side. Its a common political tactic. They are both guilty of doing it. Kerry didnt do it right. ;)

Honestly, Bush was ******dly religious when he was still a lawyer, before his political life, so it most likely wasn't a ploy to 'win votes'. But even if we can discount that, unless you haven't noticed, 'doing it right' is all that matters. "They are both guilty of doing it. Kerry didnt do it right." And that is part of the reason why Bush is in office, and Kerry isn't.

-EDIT again- Uhhh, why did this decide to censor 'o-u-t-w-a-r-d'? "Out-wardly religious", that's why I typed...

He doesn't lead our country first of all. He just has the label of the leader. He has people that do it for him but sometimes he needs to make a decision of his own which is what kills our country. I'm not saying I'm smarter than him seeing as hes at 30 some years of life on me. More logical? Yes, but not smarter.

So who's dumber, Bush or the people that voted him in? (also, the people that still think hes a great president)

Ah... Looking at the history of the Catholic church its political ideas and demands seem to so normal. Ever since the Gregorian Reform (and before) the popes have used their tremendous influence to dominate states and people alike, and they have been quite succesfull. In other words: the Catholic church taking a political stand should be paradoxically, but it isn't.

And there are several other countries, including Belgium, that still have powerful Christian political parties, though these parties are - nowadays - not nearly as connected to the church as they used to be. They just use 'Christian' ideas as their program.

Well, the most stupid thing I've heard him say is when he said "I believe Ariel Sharon is a man of peace. That's what he told us in the oval room.". Seriously, it almost seemed as he trusted every goddamn person who would just act honest. I just can't believe it, but maybe I should. After all, our government believed in the Egyptian government that they would not torture that guy who was shipped out of Sweden thanks to the CIA. The best thing e has done is to bring freedon to Iraq. Or at least the northern and southern parts of it. He also captured Saddam. Sure, he might have lied to us all and some soldiers might have gotten bored and raped I don't know how many prisoners at Abu Ghraib but that's anther story. At least the Iraqis now have the ability to elect their own president and parliament. And I believe it was deemed fair too. Besides, despite what some people say, the USA did not enforce it's own way of democracy over Iraq, the Iraqis decided how they wanted it themselves. Now that's what I call democracy. :)
