    His military IQ test demonstrated he scored higher than either Kerry or Kennedy. and like it or not, you cannot graduate from Harvard Business school if you are a moron.

    when Bush was a pledge back in the days Yale had fraternities, he and all the other pledges were in some meeting with upper class members. Pledges were asked if they could name all the other pledges in the room and Bush not only did that, he had learned their home towns as well

    sorry DF-Morons cannot do that sort of thing.
    The whole "Bush is a dunce" thing was always wrong. He's not a polished speaker, so the Left takes that a stupid. Of course Hillary's shrill style, is like music to their ears.

    Better to have bucks in the bank.

    However, I'm not really sure what the underlying point is, or even if you meant to have one.

    He's not a moron although even I personally sometimes would want to call him one. However, I seldom agree with many of the things he has done/advocated for.

    That guy signed the PATRIOT act, and the way that act is abused is almost treasonous. That's my biggest "WTF" with Bush.

    Not so. You should know that the soul is eternal.

    Yes it is, as I happen to believe it. So is that the underlying point you're trying to make? What does the soul have to do with either poverty or wealth?

    I suspect Bush has a higher IQ than Hildabeast. Now Bill Clinton-he's a very bright guy. One of the smartest presidents ever along with Nixon, Bush I, Carter. What does that tell you in terms of "high intelligence" and success in the oval office?

    The soul has nothing to do with poverty or wealth and that is the point. Because it does not have anything to do with such things, it is better to be in real knowledge, meaning knowledge of the nature of the soul and the mundane energy of God, than to be in ignorance of such things a be wealthy.

    True, but don't cover for bush by trying to turn this into a shinier of the two turds contest in regards to the expansion of federal power.
