Good job....I didn't get it though...I mean I understood it...just didn't know the exact ans. Figured it had to do w/ a pres being elected more than once.

GOOD JOB

There's a big mistake. President George W. Bush is the 43rd president, and his father, the other President Bush, was the 41st president. Thus, there have been 42 men who have served as president.

Please restrain yourself from sumbitting rude and uncalled for comments as this is not the time, not the place to do so. You are on a friendly family oriented site, therefore please act like it. Thank you!

As to the point, this is a very good teaser. Keep them coming!

Just for curiousity's sake, George W is referred to as "43" by White House staffers, while his dad is still referred to as "Ppresident Bush" more often than "41". Hmmmm.
