For the past several months, I have observed the liberal media's attempt to depict George W. Bush as some sort of likable dummy - a nice guy, but not bright enough to be president.
I don't know how smart one has to be to run a big league ball club, or to be governor of Texas. I do know a little bit about how the Air Force and Navy selects applicants for pilot training.
To make a long story short, they both choose the cream of the crop among college graduates, and half of that elite group washes out. Bush made it all the way through Air Force flight training and ended up flying a Mach One fighter.
He served in the Texas National Guard, but that has nothing to do with the selection and training process. The National Guard was not a way to avoid service in Vietnam. Many National Guard Units ended up there.
