Origins

Malapropisms, failed businesses (couldn't find oil in Texas, traded Sammy Sosa), lack of knowledge about foreign leaders and history. Use of alcohol and (possibly) cocaine - Bush is a recovering alcoholic, but the extent of alcohol use and the extent and existence of cocaine use is under debate. George W. Bush was a below-average student at Andover and Yale; and yet, he still was admitted to Harvard's Business School.
