I do.....that is why I voted for him. Not only do  think that Bush is extremely intelligent, I also think he has surronded himself with brilliant people like Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice, etc

I would certainly trust him not to purposefully waste my life. He is an intelligent, articulate man. However, people make fun of him because : a)he's American and b) he's dyslexic

Real funny eh?

I belive that Bush is a very smart and intelligent person. That is why I voted for him.

Let me just clarify that point Owen, people dont just dislike him because he's american and dyslexic, thats just being stupid, it's because he is a threat to world security with his foreign policy that people dislike him.
As for whether or not he's intelligent, I dont know the guy so I cant say, though from the outside he does give the impression of being a dimwit, but who knows?

Just a side note, an MRBI poll in ireland today revealed the following results:

Who do you fear most:
Saddam Hussein 39%
George W Bush   60%

I doubt people fear his nationality or his dyslexia, but his foreign policy.

^^ That's not what he said.  He said people make fun of him because he's american, and he's dyslexic, which is very true.  You're changing the subject.

Well, the people in Ireland are officially the most stupid, uninformed, idiotic people in the history of the world if those poll results are true. Tell them to go live under Sadaam Hussein.

I am ashamed to have Irish heritage.

Maestro~Minded-

I'm going to assume you consider yourself intelligent.

When was the last time you've done something stupid?

The stupid part about these pics is that a half second after they were taken he saw what was wrong and fixed it...

You've never tried to take a picture and realized the lens cap was on???

If you are going to try and prove Bush is Ignorant, funny pictures aren't going to do anything but make you look bitter.

never said he was intellectual. But isn't it so satanic that he's dyslexic, and messes up speeches? I mean, we should really kill him.  ::) Man, you just proved my point.

so you're saying that since he have difficult to see the script on the paper, he talks "freestyle" ? .. that just shows how stupid he is when he have notning to fall back on..

thank YOU for proving my point

dyslexia , in psychology, a developmental disability in reading or spelling, generally becoming evident in early schooling. To a dyslexic, letters and words may appear reversed, e.g., d seen as b or was seen as saw. Many dyslexics never learn to read or write effectively, although they tend to show above average intelligence in other areas. With the aid of computerized brain scans such as positron emission tomography (PET), recent studies have offered strong evidence that dyslexia is located in the brain. Damage to the brain can cause a reading disability similar to dyslexia, known as acquired dyslexia or alexia.


^^ this means some words might be wrong.. not whole sentences....

Haha, I'm not exactly proud of having you representing the Irish people either man.

And as for being stupid, uniinformed and idiotic  ::) ::)

Saddam has not threatened the world and especially not Ireland. Howver Bushs attempts to police the world are going to lead to increased terrorism which could easily lead to places like Sellafield in england being targeted, which would obliterate the whole country of ireland withot really affecting london.  That is why people fear Bush more than saddam.

And sorry trauma, I misread the question. I think the reason people make fun of him is coz of the funny things he says, as maestro listed below. Maybe it's coz he's dyslexic but dyslexia doesnt distort sentences just certain letters within words

Anyway, of course we all do stupid shit, but we dont have thousands of nuclear weapons at our disposal. The worst we could do is have our friends laugh at us. Bush could start a nuclear war.

I guess y'all disagree with me cause I'm dyslexic and I'm actually misreading your sentences. You're really all giving logical arguments.  ::)

On the real, I have dyslexia, my brother does too. My grandpa did groundbreaking research on dyslexia in the 60s. Who is gonna know, I-Bo, who has "read about it in school" (lol), or me? Oh well.

Bush may be a danger to the world because he's evil, but not because he's stupid. I know of no-one who has met the man who actually thought him stupid.

Since when has Bush been dyslexic? I'm just wondering as when i lived in America (99-2001, which was during the election campaign and his first 7 months in office) they never said that the reason he screws up all the time in speeches is because he's dyslexic, in fact they didn't give any official reason for it.
Title: Re:Is Bush "Intelligent" / "Smart" ??
Post by: TheSheriff on February 17, 2003, 09:50:33 AM
Last time I checked, he'd always been dyslexic. He didn't catch it.  ::)

Of course they didn't give it as an official reason. They seem to have some degree of honour. NEVER go for a direct sympathy vote. Gaah. You people...

Title: Re:Is Bush "Intelligent" / "Smart" ??
Post by: Trauma-san on February 17, 2003, 10:43:25 AM
Sure, I will.  You question was why did they never give dyslexia as the reason he screws up speeches.  The reason: Because it doesn't matter.  who cares? Most americans could care less, we know what he's saying, you do too, you just want to be a dick about it.  People screw up.  Big deal.  Misstating something doesn't mean you're gonna 'accidentally' bomb somebody, it means you screw up vocal communication sometimes.  It's not big deal.  Why do public figures always have to apologize for what they are? Yall are assholes for beating a man down like that because of a speech problem.

Is it because mummy and daddy used their moolah to gain him entry in to the place?

No, you don't get it... I read it, so it must be true!

Sure, I didn't offer any facts to back it up, no evidence whatsoever, but hey, It's true cause I read it!

The point I was trying to make, is that people throw around opinions and stereotypes like they are the God given truth in this forum. People expect to be taken seriously without providing facts of any sort.

I dunno what "facts" you want to back up points. Maybe if papers online hadnt gone private there may have been a chance of this. The point of posting on an article you read, is others may have seen it too, or heard something that disproves it, and it can be discussed. The Irish Times and The Irish Independant, the two papers I get a chance to read charge online subsciptions so I cant offer you links for them. Well, I could, if ya wanna subscribe.

Psychologically speaking, he suffers from an Oedipus complex since he is a former alcoholic and according to his dad a failure. The fact that he stopped drinking and soon afterwards became a devout Christian is an obvious indication for sublimation. In other words, he's a psychological wreck.
