Have you forgotten that an Ivy grad is in the White House?

I'm a new Ivy dad from bright red MAGA Texas. My first time on the VOY. Down here in Texas, we no longer claim W as one of ours. Not since he started slummin with Bubba. We never claimed HW, the creepy CIA spook and Skull and Bones whacko.

Just curious, though, how the vastly improved economy under Trump after eight years of nothing burgers under Zero equals a decline. As for smarts, Trump would love to compare grades with Zero but Zero won't let Columbia release his transcripts. What's up with that anyway?

Oh well, I guess I've stirred up enough trouble for my first time on the VOY. See you next time!

Welcome aboard.

Not sure that I follow you on the nothing burgers. When Obama arrived, the economy was a smoking crater left behind by Bush the Very Dim. It recovered on his watch, not Trump's. Trump was fortunate enough to climb aboard a fast-moving train, and is just sloppy seconds on economic growth since '08. You know the old saying about being born on third base but thinking you hit a triple.

And I agree that Texas should not claim either Bush. They're both fake Texans. As is the way with trust finders (also see Romney), the senior Bush had at least four home states--Mass., Conn., Maine, and Texas (but not really TX as you correctly point out; also we heard up here that his TX crib was only a hotel room; true?).

Friend, welcome to the Voy Forum. First off, you need to understand that this is an IVY League sports board, open to occasional snarky sniping, but DEVOID of political rants. We go after coaches, leagues and players, and occasionally each other, but we keep politics out of it.


Although out of fairness, I must rebut your position on POTUS' economic miracle. A simple look at the stats (we do that here a lot) reveals that the recovery was well underway and kicking butt long before he showed up. In sports jargon, we refer to his achievement here as "garbage time"

Thank you for the kind welcome. This looks like a very fun, good natured sports thread. Even for cell phone abusing, grotesquely obese, galactic junk food eating supporters of our stupid president Drumpf (not sure how ya'll spell that). 😀

Summary of last few Ivy-grad White House residents:

Kennedy: Not too bright. Daddy, using bootlegger profits, bought him and even duller sibling Teddy the best education that money could buy, and then splurged even more to buy him the WH job.

Ford: Good guy, but as Johnson once remarked, Gerry couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time because he had played too much football at Michigan without a helmet.

Bush the Pretty Dim: Another not-too-bright trust find neptocrat lightweight who was appointed to every good job he ever got until Reagan bent down and put him on as a VP candidate (another appointment), who didn't do so well once he actually had to get elected to an office (one-termer), whose daddy was a U.S. senator, and whose family money essentially bought him the WH job. See Kennedy above.

Clinton: Smarter than the aforementioned dudes (except for that lapse with the pizza delivery chick), but also slicker than snot on a dork on, hence the "Slick Willy" handle.

Bush the Very Dim: Makes the current occupant look like a Nobel Prize Winner, which ain't easy to do.

Obama: Smarter than the Rs. Hard to compare to Slick Willy because Willy was, well, so slick.

Trump: Smart at correctly assessing the mood of a slice of a nation that, when it puts its cell phones down and stops achieving ever more stupendous levels of grotesque obesity while stuffing down galactic quantities of junk food, is staging a rerun of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Otherwise, less smart.

Except that I have done the same thing. Just not with a SB ring.

Drumpf was a junior year transfer to Wharton, which, as we all know is no more U of Penn than the Freehold NJ Campus of Rutgers University.

Granted, neither do Ivy championship rings.

But you better believe that I don't lose track of my own rings when I'm taking them out.

Given your memory, it's very easy to believe that you lose and/or misplace stuff.

I wasn't going to say it, but if you're going to scream for it, then here you go.

Fun fact: Two of these guys don't have their biological fathers' last names. Any guesses without Googling it first?
