In six years in the White House, George W. Bush has screwed up so many things, you have to wonder: Is he unlucky or incompetent?
Well, now we know.
Thanks to the Lovenstein Institute of Scranton, Pennsylvania, which just released a study of the IQ of twelve American presidents, over the last 50 years. And the results are well, not surprising.
The average IQ of six Republican presidents Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush 41, and Bush 43 was 115.5. President Nixon topped the list, at 155.
The average IQ of six Democratic presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, and Clinton was 156. With President Clinton leading the class at 182.
The smartest president of the last 50 years?
You guessed it: Bill Clinton, with his 182 IQ.
The least intelligent president of the last 50 years?
You guessed it again: George W. Bush, with his rock bottom IQ of 91: seven points lower than his Daddy.
So now we know. Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Social Security, Medicare, Stem Cells, FEMA, the deficit, immigration
The reason George Bush has screwed up in so many areas the last six years.
Hes not just incompetent. Hes just plain dumb the dumbest president in the last 50 years. And, probably, the dumbest president ever!
Thats my parting shot for today. Im Bill Press.
(Yes, his article also accepts readers comments)

Be sure to get screen caps before he censors it! :-)
It's no phonier than 90% of what the MSM barfs up each day.
I'm sure Bill Press will listen to you.
Gosh, even Snopes got that one right.
Could Press be repeating this knowing it isn't true?
Bill just proved that he's as gullible as every other pseudo intellectual that fell for the faked Lovenstein study on the basis that it seemed to use the right kind of language.
Just wait until he uses the defense, "It may be fake, but I believe it is 100% accurate."
BS! i'd be suprised if he could get 125

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.
And Bill Press's IQ is what??
Since when do liberals care about reality and facts?
They just invent their own.
I don't think he was mistaken, I think he did this on purpose. He knows it's a farce.
I just think he does.
Got away with bombing the WTC, starting an illegal war, and produced a hurricane.
Clinton couldn't even pull off an affair with his secretary.
And stealing two elections right under the dems nozes.
What a maroon! It usually takes about 15 secs to check these out.....it's only a matter of time before I receive this in e-mail from my Lexus-driving, country club-golfing, WalMart hating, Costco loving, Al Gore worshiping, NRDC donating, mother.....
If Carter and Clinton were 'smart, I'll take a 'dumb' President Bush any day!
Judging from the fact that both GWB and his mother have a well developed and attested spontaneous sense of humor [as opposed to somebody parroting the jokes prepared and/or written by others], it necessarily follows that their IQs are above average. This much could be said without any actual testing. Therefore Bill Press better switch to a new laxative lest he bursts, he's so full of it.
