From my hometown radio station:
Daughter of Ben Barnes Disputes Father's Claims as Political
BARNES: I love my father very much, but he's doing this for purely political reasons. He is a big Kerry fund-raiser and he is writing a book also. And [the Bush story] is what he's leading the book off with. ... He denied this to me in 2000 that he did get Bush out [of Vietnam service]. Now he's saying he did.
BARNES: Yes, yes. This came out in 2000 and I asked him then, at the time, if he [helped get Bush into the Guard]. He said: "No, absolutely not. I did not do that." -

Hey Paul...what was Bush's score on the ANG entry exam?
If you guessed lower 25th percentile (D-) you were right!!!!!!
Explain how someone who was one bulb of a christmastree from failing the test able to leapfrog the hundred other people that scored well ahead of him? Charm? Not likely.
Influence? Is there any other way to get in with shitty grades?
Or are you going to tell me, the ANG accepts near failures as a matter of routine? Does Yale gladly accept C- students? Does Harvard accept C students as a matter of routine?
What does acceptance with horrible scores in the ANG, High School and Yale have in common. B-U-S-H.
And if you have any proof otherwise, please post them here (sourced, please).

Not to mention that Barnes' daughter "Amy" who just happened to call the Mark Levine show has never been heard from again.
Anything to win.

while the 25th %tile is nominally passing it seems like an F+ rather than a D-.

Lets talk about Hahvahd for a second. They did not kick Ted Kennedy out for cheating. Talk about influence. It happens on both sides. Yet you only want to talk about the Republicans. Why do I bother??

Uh, Ed, one reason being that it's Bush (not Kennedy) who is running for President. And claiming that he didn't achieve his bragged about qualities due to family influence.
As to the Kennedy/Harvard assertion, I've seen neither evidence of it (feel free to point me towards some) nor do I see how that applies to the question of Bush's family influence.
Are you now admitting that his family's influence *did* help him into Harvard, Yale and the National Guard?

There's one thing about education that Bush proves: we can't trust private education. From Andover to Harvard, this guy was given social promotions. Now he commands the most powerful weapons in the history of humanity. One day we are going to figure out that we need smart leaders not smart bombs.

Nice site. Have a link to the several hundred people Clinton killed in his rise to power?

Wow, Ed. There is NOTHING sourced on the page you pointed to. Simply one assertion after another, without a single link to a single piece of evidence!
And you believe it!
And yet, when evidence after evidence is presented to you, from mulitple sources (for example, no WMD, Bush did not fullfill ANG requirements) you don't except it.
Perhaps if I just started making stuff up, posting no sourcing for the information, you'd be more inclined to believe it! Amazing.

It must be true. It's on the internet.
