Erin: I do not call all conservatives unintelligent.
But I will go 'out on a limb' and say Bush is unintelligent. (can't accuse me
of a subliminal smear campaign or as Bush would say sublibiminal ha ha)
I told you a Republican who closely worked with Bush
described his "lack of curiosity".
The other Republicans in the discussion only half-heartedly
defended his intelligence.
Questioning Bush's intelligence is not a conservative/liberal
issue to me. I just listen to stupid comments over and over and
come to a conclusion. I love the one interview where he confidently
denied that there could be a remote possibility that
a criminal with a death sentence was innocent.
This was after he was shown a series of how DNA has cleared names on death row
in oter states. But Bush knows it just not possible. He is not only
he is all-knowing:-P
This interview wasn't about whether there should be a death penalty or not
whether it was possible if innocent people were sentenced.

administration, because I believe the results of focusing our attention and

that refuses to change, will make America what we want it to be - a more
literate country and a hopefuller country." -George W. Bush, Jan. 2001
