Bush scored higher than Kerry on officer exam - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Secret Weapon for Bush?

Published: October 24, 2004

To Bush-bashers, it may be the most infuriating revelation yet from the military records of the two presidential candidates: the young George W. Bush probably had a higher I.Q. than did the young John Kerry.

That, at least, is the conclusion of Steve Sailer, a conservative columnist at the Web magazine Vdare.com and a veteran student of presidential I.Q.'s. During the last presidential campaign Mr. Sailer estimated from Mr. Bush's SAT score (1206) that his I.Q. was in the mid-120's, about 10 points lower than Al Gore's.

Mr. Kerry's SAT score is not known, but now Mr. Sailer has done a comparison of the intelligence tests in the candidates' military records. They are not formal I.Q. tests, but Mr. Sailer says they are similar enough to make reasonable extrapolations.

Mr. Bush's score on the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test at age 22 again suggests that his I.Q was the mid-120's, putting Mr. Bush in about the 95th percentile of the population, according to Mr. Sailer. Mr. Kerry's I.Q. was about 120, in the 91st percentile, according to Mr. Sailer's extrapolation of his score at age 22 on the Navy Officer Qualification Test.

Linda Gottfredson, an I.Q. expert at the University of Delaware, called it a creditable analysis said she was not surprised at the results or that so many people had assumed that Mr. Kerry was smarter. "People will often be misled into thinking someone is brighter if he says something complicated they can't understand," Professor Gottfredson said.

Many Americans still believe a report that began circulating on the Internet three years ago, and was quoted in "Doonesbury," that Mr. Bush's I.Q. was 91, the lowest of any modern American president. But that report from the non-existent Lovenstein Institute turned out to be a hoax.

You might expect Kerry campaign officials, who have worried that their candidate's intellectual image turns off voters, to quickly rush out a commercial trumpeting these new results, but for some reason they seem to be resisting the temptation.

Upon hearing of their candidate's score, Michael Meehan, a spokesman for the senator, said merely: "The true test is not where you start out in life, but what you do with those God-given talents. John Kerry's 40 years of public service puts him in the top percentile on that measure."

Bush's ANG records all reflect that he was a good pilot, and that he served more time on active duty in 5 years than what was normally required for 6 years. His records have been examined undaer a microscope for 4 years now.

Kerry still won't release all of his service records. He's on the campaign trail boasting of fighting and spilling blood for this country, yet the officers around him says he's a complete fraud, even making re-enacted movies of his own "heroics."

We find out today that he never met with the U.N. Security Council like he claimed.

We know he never spent that Christmas Eve in Cambodia.

We know his Silver Star was re-issued twice, the last time with a "V" for valor, which is NEVER done with the Silver Star.

We know Kerry admitted in his own words on Face the Nation that he, himself, committed war crimes. Yes, on TV, to Tim Russert, when asked pointedly if he, himself, had committed war crimes.

We know Kerry claims to have met with foreign leaders who looked him in the eye and remarked that we have to get rid of Bush, yet his own official travel records show he was never out of the country or met with officials here during the time period he referenced.

We know Kerry is today going around telling people that Bush will institute a draft, when it was two Democrats that submitted a draft bill and the Republicans voted it down last week. He says he'll add two Army divisions, but who will volunteer with a Kerry Commander In Chief? You ain't seen a "backdoor draft" like what'll happen if Kerry is prez, because people will be leaving the military in droves.

NONE of the above is just right-wing whacko hearsay - it is unalterable fact.

Um, folks, we have a dishonesty problem here. I believe the guy is a psychopathic liar. You can conjure all conspiracy theories you want about Bush, but where is the proof? I mean documentable proof, not just some hair-brained suspicion or anecdotal evidence, I'm talking incontrovertable proof?
