    You are excused. Again, the article states nothing about Yale switching grading systems during Bush's last year. Who's 'non-numerical system' are they using the reporters or Yale's?

    Regarding grades and intelligence: intelligence helps for good grades, but the correlation is not that strong. There are good reasons for bad grades despite being intelligent (e.g. having more important things to do than preparing exams).

    The notion that Bush is not particularly intelligent is based on him often saying things that are, well, not very intelligent. Things like...

    "See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda." —George W. Bush, Greece, N.Y., May 24, 2005

    "We discussed the way forward in Iraq, discussed the importance of a democracy in the greater Middle East in order to leave behind a peaceful tomorrow." —George W. Bush, Tbilisi, Georgia, May 10, 2005

    "It's in our country's interests to find those who would do harm to us and get them out of harm's way." —George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., April 28, 2005

    "And so during these holiday seasons, we thank our blessings." —George W. Bush, Fort Belvoir, Va., Dec. 10, 2004

    Nudist....maybe this factual article from the high acclaimed news source room from Spoof News will be more to your liking:

    George Bush Asks Yale to Raise Grade

    FULL STORY

    President George Bush (R-CT/ME/TX/AL/TX) acted swiftly today to solidify his latest victory over Sen. John Kerry (D-MA). Kerry provided complete access to his military records, a move demanded by detractors during the 2004 presidential campaign.

    Kerry's undergraduate transcript was part of the package. Bush and Kerry both graduated from Yale University. The transcript shows that Bush graduated with a culmulative average one percentage point higher than Kerry's.

    In a statement issued on Tuesday, Kerry said that he spent a great deal of time learning how to fly instead of studying. Bush waited until after graduation to take flying lessons as part of a government program. Records available to the public about each man's flying experience are incomplete.

    White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said the President was "pleased by the institutional mandate given to him by the faculty of Yale. He will spend his intellectual capital wisely to bring about a positive change in America."

    Today, Bush submitted a class assignment to clear up the "Incomplete" he received for Public Speaking. Bush sent in the audience analysis, outline and script for his well rehearsed response to questions about the Downing Street Memo. Bush fullfilled the performance requirement at a White House press conference on Tuesday.

    I think we can all agree that Dubya's oration skills are not that great.

    Well not all, but a lot of them. The others write their own with continual reference to that article. But several of them also printed it in the newspaper, broadcast it TV, I heard it mentioned on top of the hour news briefs...... The point is, if it was a terribly article, and not factually validated, I don't think that would have happened....or else you have the left screaming on the top of their lungs.

    Having taught Public Speaking.....It depends....Bush gives an honest impression when he speaks...which is an attractive quality in any speaker's arsenal. But is he the best, no, There is no doubt that there are others who are more polished. But many of them are then criticized for not being in touch, too scripted, too slick, or unbelievable in the statements they are saying.

    All politics aside....I feel that Ronald Reagan was one of the best examples. He was funny, had good pacing, great vocabulary, able to think on his feet without hesitation, and gave a very honest impression. I used him as a positive example in my class.

    Many different scales to judge and many areas to criticize.

    Malcolm X had good oratory skills. Guess we should've elected him President.

    Once I get the 'internets' at my house working again I will try and provide you with the info you seek. Although I have a feeling someone else here will beat me to it. He did in fact say that if someone in his admin was to be found responsible for the leak 'they would no longer be part of the admin'. He did not just say it once but quite a few times. Scottie also repeated the meme a couple of times.

    I guess you could interpret that as something other than Yale's, but I certainly wouldn't. Yale switched grading systems, AFAICT.

    Given the situation, whom else would or even should have had political power in the Black community at that time other than someone focusing on the racism being experienced?

    Ah....the world of politics. How many countless situations over every single administration back to Washington could this simple but true phrase be applied to.

    Now does quoting someone else in his post count for the DaThomas's tally of using the phrase Kool-Aide?
