    In a report published Monday, the Lovenstein Institute of Scranton, PA detailed its findings of a four-month study of the intelligence quotient (IQ) of President George W. Bush. Since 1973, the Lovenstein Institute has published its research to the educational community on each new president, which includes the famous "IQ" report among others.

    There have been twelve presidents over the past 60 years, from F.D. Roosevelt to G.W. Bush, who were rated based on scholarly achievements, writings that they produced without aid of staff, their ability to speak with clarity, and several other psychological factors, which were then scored using the Swanson/Crain system of intelligence ranking. The study determined the following IQs of each president as accurate to within five percentage points:

    182...William J. Clinton (D)

    175...James E. Carter (D)

    174...John F. Kennedy (D)

    155...Richard M. Nixon (R)

    147...Franklin D. Roosevelt (D)

    132...Harry S. Truman (D)

    126...Lyndon B. Johnson ( D)

    122...Dwight D. Eisenhower (R)

    121...Gerald R. Ford (R)

    105...Ronald W. Reagan (R)

    098...George H.W. Bush (R)

    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 at 155. President George W. Bush 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. Among comments made concerning the specific testing of President George W. Bush, his low ratings are due to his apparently difficult command of the English language in public statements, his limited use of vocabulary (6,500 words for Bush vs. an average of 11,000 words for other presidents), his lack of scholarly achievements other than a basic MBA, and an absence of any body of work which could be studied on an intellectual basis.

    The complete report documents the methods and procedures used to arrive at these ratings, including depth of sentence structure and voice-stress confidence analysis.

    "All the Presidents prior to George W. Bush had at least one book under their belt, and most had written several white papers during their education or early careers. Not so with President Bush," Dr. Lovenstein said. "He has no published works or writings, which made it more difficult to arrive at an assessment. We relied more heavily on transcripts of his unscripted public speaking."

    The Lovenstein Institute think tank includes high-caliber historians, psychiatrists, sociologists, scientists in human behavior, and psychologists. Among their ranks are Dr. Werner R. Lovenstein, world-renowned sociologist, and Professor Patricia F. Dilliams, a world-respected psychiatrist.

    This study was commissioned on Feb. 13, 2001 and released on July 9, 2001 to subscribing member universities and organizations within the educational community.

    "President George W. Bush rated the lowest of all the Republicans with an IQ of 91..."

    ....here's one that all here will find interesting...well, troubling...


    DO YOU HAVE BLACKS IN BRAZIL?
    (Excerpted and adapted from article in "Der Spiegel", May 19, 2002)

    It is said, that, before September 11, George W. Bush thought the Taliban were a Bavarian brass band. Now, thanks to his comprehensive knowledge, the most powerful man in the world has got into hot water again.

    It was Condoleezza Rice, national security advisor, who helped her boss out of the embarassing situation. During a conversation between the two presidents, George W. Bush, 55, and Brazilian president Fernando Henrique Cardoso, 71, Bush bewildered his colleague with the question "Do you have blacks, too?"

    Rice, 47, noticing how astonished the Brazilian was, saved the day by telling Bush "Mr. President, Brazil probably has more blacks than the USA. Some say it's the country with the most blacks outside Africa." Later, Cardoso commented that regarding Latin America, Bush was still in his "learning phase".
