    Plenty of this to go around.

But name calling is considered offensive in mixed company and doesn't lead to alot of intelligent discussion, which is so obviously the point of this board.

    Pretend you are at someone's house as their guest for dinner. Keep the conversation respectiful and quiet if you possibly can. After all, the food's good here and I think you'll want to be invited back.

    Im sure a great many here who have a problem with me calling Bush a moron, exercised the same respect towards Clinton as well. Not.

    Saying Bush is a moron isnt name calling. Its a factual observance of reality. As for policys of his that reflect this, pick one. Take a dart and throw it at em. Do it blindfolded and over your back. You cant miss.

    Attacking his actions is probably a lot more effective than calling him a moron.

    Plus he's really not all that stupid. While his 1206 on the SAT probably shouldn't have gotten him into Yale, it's still respectable.

    I feel unclean.

    "While his 1206 on the SAT probably shouldn't have gotten him into Yale"

    Try "definitely shouldn't."

    Most anyone can be coached into getting that kind of score on the SAT.

    No, they really can't. I know people who couldn't break 15 on the ACT.

    His SAT score should be higher too, anyone that took it before, I think, 1994 should mark there score up a bit.

    Alright, I'm exaggerating. But for people who aren't legacies, the Ivy League won't talk to you without a 1300. To get in, probably closer to 1400--Harvard closer to 1500+.

    Warned and decided to challenge the warning. Banned.

    On this topic... I am watching a very interesting documentary on the U.S. Presidents (the History Channel). They made mention that FDR was a "C" student at Harvard. I would assume that FDR, the average student, helped gain admission the Ivy League school from the fact that he was the only child of aristocrats. But we all know about FDR the President. Didn't seem to do too bad of a job in the White House!

    I am not quite sure what you mean, FCB, by "legacies"? Most 18-year-olds are not legacies. Do you mean come from wealthy or prestigous families? Seems as though the tag fits both Pres. G.W. Bush & FDR.

    Legacy means his father attended Yale.

    D'oh... thanks, RF! That sure helps with admissions. Especially when donations are being made when the university calls. A few bricks, paid with Bush money, were probably laid on the Yale campus. "It's not what you know, it's who you know"... I say it all the time. In a lot of aspects of life.

    Of course it fits both Bush and FDR...and Kennedy, Bush the first, as opposed to non-blueblood presidents: Clinton, Carter, Nixon, Johnson, Truman et al.

    But the SAT wasn't around when FDR applied for Harvard.
