Report: President Bush Has Lowest IQ of All Presidents of Past 50 Years
The study determined the following IQs of each president as accurate to within five percentage points:
147 Franklin D. Roosevelt (D)
132 Harry Truman (D)
122 Dwight D. Eisenhower (R)
174 John F. Kennedy (D)
126 Lyndon B. Johnson (D)
155 Richard M. Nixon (R)
121 Gerald Ford (R)
175 James E. Carter (D)
105 Ronald Reagan (R)
098 George HW Bush (R)
182 William J. Clinton (D)
091 George W. Bush (R)
The six Republican presidents of the past 50 years had an average IQ of 115.5, with President Nixon having the highest IQ, at 155.
President G. W. Bush was rated the lowest of all the Republicans with an IQ of 91. The six Democrat presidents had IQs with an average of 156, with President Clinton having the highest IQ, at 182. President Lyndon B. Johnson was rated the lowest of all the Democrats with an IQ of 126. No president other than Carter (D) has released his actual IQ, 176.
I have found no evidence of a "Lovenstein Institute" in Scranton, Pennsylvania or anywhere else. There's no trace of a "Dr. Werner R. Lovenstein, world-renowned sociologist" or "Professor Patricia F. Dilliams, world-respected psychiatrist" — not in this world, at any rate. All of the facts and figures appear to have been fabricated. Some versions of the text claim it was published by the Associated Press, which is certainly not the case.
The apparent source of this work of fiction was www.linkydinky.com, which is home, appropriately enough, to a humor mailing list.
About the authors: Cristina L. Borenstein and Lana Taamar are both recently off the campaign trail where they served as receptionists for the Pennsylvania chapter of Gore For President, Inc., and have co-written the eBook Gore Got Gored. Together they publish the The Pennsylvania Court Observer which has a circulation of 5.
Dr. Lovenstein lives in a mobile home in Scranton, Pennsylvania with his long time companion Patricia F. Dilliams. When the two are not publishing reports for their Lovenstein Institute, they run an internet business www.collegedegreesforsale.com 136955
This reminds me of NEM's link to made up numbers for state IQs. Whatever. He was elected twice so if he's too dumb, the joke's on us.
Funny thing is...and we all know it...there is a big difference between book smarts and street smarts. Jimmy Carter was very smart, but had little to no street smarts. Clinton had both and he usually used them to hus advantage.
IMO I think Bush has average intelligence at least and probably above average. But, he has tremendous street smarts. yes, he has made mistakes...but opeople who know him say he doesn't usually miss a trick. His goofball mannerisms is a ploy to make people at ease...then he strikes and strikes quick and hard.
He's not the greatest public speaker NEM ... but the world is full of smart people who can't speak or write well. Not sticking up for Bush, just saying that public speaking is not any kind of an indicator.
