Bush: lowest IQ in past 50 years

According to the Lovenstein Institute - and popular opinion – President Bush is a dim-wit.
Since 1973, the Lovenstein Institute has published it's research to the education community on each new president, which includes the famous "IQ" report among others.

According to statements in the report, there have been twelve presidents over the past 50 years, from F. D. Roosevelt to G. W. Bush who were all rated based on scholarly achievements, writings that they alone produced without aid of staff, their ability to speak with clarity, and several other psychological factors which were then scored in 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 Truman (D)
126 .. Lyndon B. Johnson (D)
122 .. Dwight D. Eisenhower (R)
121 .. Gerald Ford (R)
105 .. Ronald Reagan (R)
098 .. George HW Bush (R)
091 .. George W. Bush (R)

If you concur with the findings of this of this report, you’re a dumbass with an IQ of less than 091…here’s why.

What’s more, Bush is the first US president to earn a masters degree in business (from Harvard, no less) and his SAT score was 1206 (see conversion chart). But don’t be confused by the facts, if you’ve already decided that he’s an idiot; that way, you can maintain your false sense of intellectual superiority.
