    I believe his intelligence was irrelevent because he refused to use it, instead favoring an ideology that did not waver to circumstance. He famously did not care about things like poll numbers and that sort of stuff, prefering to stick to his guns no matter what. The constant failure to consider the situation and data rather than his personal values was a huge problem with his presidency.

    He may have been intelligent, but he never acted as if he was. People like Palin demonstrate the same sort of problem. His failure to act intelligently while in the office is the reason I hold the opinion that he isn't intelligent.

    (I know, I never give simple answers to anything )

    So in other words, Bush is intelligent but he isn't. Got it.

    Intelligence is more than a binary thing.

    We don't want to hear anything negative about the Tea Party! However, if you have a poll saying Obama's numbers are slipping....

    The point is that lots of people believe Bush is not an intelligent man despite the proof that he is.

    The same type of disinformation is at work with the CNN poll.

    I would like to see the same CNN polling groups answer to this question; "In your opinion, is Geroge W. Bush an intelligent man?"

    And I have given you a basis for why I don't believe he was intelligent. I can't speak for other people though.

    Perhaps you are right and perhaps not, but you have to prove your case before you can claim its true. Personally, I just don't know.

    Generally, I think hoaxes probably do affect general opinions at first, but as people learn about an issue, they have less of an effect.



    Tell that to nonperriel or whatever his name is. Apparently the tea party is not for equality and freedom or some such.

    I believe that they are for their definition of those terms. Perhaps not nonperile's.

    So we find ourselves back at the original question.

    Have the lies about the Tea Party affected people's opinions about them?

    Perhaps we'll never know the answer to that question. The safe bet is of course the lies made a difference in people's opinion.

    It's happened lots of times before and will definitely happen again.
