    Who truly believes that President Bush made the top of the national guard list with an entrance score of 25 (the minimum) and he did it without any influence whatsoever? :rolleyes:

    Where do you get that info? The score itself is VERY suspect and indicates to me (because I know how the"entrance exam", as you call it, is given and graded) that it is false.

    Kerry claims the Vwar was not good. But he had to go all the way over to Vietnam to figure it out. Looks like Bush figured it out without even leaving the country. Now who is smarter? :D

    that doesn't answer the question though, does anyone truly believe that influence wasn't used to keep him out by putting him at the top of the air guard list?

    Records from his military file show that in January 1968, after inquiring about Guard admission, Mr. Bush went to an Air Force recruiting office near Yale, where he took and passed the test required by the Air Force for pilot trainees. His score on the pilot aptitude section, one of five on the test, was in the 25th percentile, the lowest allowed for would-be fliers.


    The 25th percentile is a far cry from a score of 25. While the 25th percentile is the lowest ALLOWED for would be fliers, it is allowable. Also notice that this ranking was in one of 5 tests. According to the link you provided and out of this same story, the article indicates that he did especially well in regards to leadership. Wonder why you didn't indicate that as well?

    I don't care if our president was ever a warrior . Niether one of them can prove leadership skills by using thier military record and anyone who WANTS to kill or be killed has a few screws loose.

    Hopefully either one of them would use the military advice given to them by a collective group of professionals.

    The link I provided was to a google search, not a specific article. Wonder why you didn't notice that?

    on top of that, why was he pushed to the top of the list? One would think that if there were some fantastic score for that it would be lauded upon during this campaign.
