Phelps is 6'4 in his nike trainers. barefoot no more than 6'3
MD said on 17/Aug/08
I don't know where you saw Phelps listed as that, because EVERY listing has him at 6'4", which he looks. So, perhaps you need to revise your question.
Viper said on 17/Aug/08
Phelps is no 6-7, lol. I doubt hes even 6-4.
M said on 17/Aug/08
Michael Phelps is 6'7. In a pic on CNN with GWB aside, they look similar in height. How is that possible?

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan is 1.90m according to several Turkish newspapers. In the link you provided it is clear that he is 10 cm taller then George Bush.

Does anyone know how tall Pervez Musharraf (the military ruler of Pakistan) is?
daii said on 25/Jul/08
id say Bush is a flat 5'11 with no shoes and 6'0 with shoes
ralf said on 23/Jul/08
Bush could be 5'11" at his peak, but he is more about 5'10"-5'10.5" now
Daniel said on 16/Jul/08
Bush seems a little tall to me in every photo or video I've seen of him, so 5'11'' seems accurate. Those who say he is under 1.78m should stop posting those BS comments. By the way, I don't like Bush at all.
Alex said on 8/Jul/08
A little guy wouldn't be 5'11.
Lynn said on 5/Jul/08
if Pres. Bush was 176 cm barefoot before bed, he would be the tallest 176 cm guy I ever saw.
He never seems shorter, never. He is 178-179 cm minimum.
little one said on 2/Jul/08
RT - may I suggest that you might not be 5'10? perhaps you are taller.
Ian said on 27/Jun/08
5ft 11 isn't tiny either Ja Z not laughable tiny. He looks the same height as Tony Blair in their many meetings and Blair is 6ft I recall. So I guess his 5ft11.5-.75 claim will be about right. When he says he is the little guy it's because his family members are taller than him.
Gustav said on 27/Jun/08
He's clearly 1.76-1.78 mt to my eyes, never 1.80 barefoot
Ja Z said on 26/Jun/08
Ha! 5'11 thats not realy tall and my uncle is talking 'bout u r 6'4 that's 5 inches shorter not to tease u but SHORTY MCSHORTSHORT!!!!! (I tease!)
RT said on 24/Jun/08
President Bush walked past me at Kirtland AFB, NM a few years ago. I was 6 - 10 feet away from him. I'm 5' 10" and the President was much shorter than I. I would estimate his height as 5' 6" - 5' 8".
little one said on 20/Jun/08
on arriving at Amsterdam, HOlland, i was surprised at how short i felt. I am 5'11 and even the children seemed huge. I felt like i was in the land of giants. even the staircases were larger than i was used to...

Sarkozy is a major lift wearer, Mo.
Kyle, Houston said on 16/Jun/08
I went to Germany and found the men to be taller than Americans, but the women seemed much, much taller than American women.
Mo said on 15/Jun/08
I was curious about his height because there's some recent photos of him next to France's Sarkozy (5,4"?) and though Bush is much taller, he's not immensely towering over him.
Viper said on 11/Jun/08
Bush does look shorter than 5-11 a lot.
said on 7/Jun/08
Bush is only 2 inches taller than McCain. McCain's biographies state he is 5'7". I think he used lifts to look almost 5'9" at his debates with the much taller Romney. But it is well documented for years that he is 5'7". Bush is a strong 5'9" who occasionally uses lifts or cowboy boots to look 5'11"ish. Click Here
John said on 7/Jun/08
Does Bush wear lifts?
Crush said on 3/Jun/08
If he got mesured at 5'11.75 or 5'11.5 i don't understand why he says "I'm a little guy, i'm about 5'11"
He could also say "I'm 5'11.75" or "I'm about 6'0", but if he's rerally a little over 5'11, why does he downgrade himself??
Guys usually NOT downgrade themselves, especially (proudly) presidents, because of this i'm very suspicious if he's at least a tad under 5'11 ...
RAZOR said on 22/May/08
If Bush already got measured as 5'11 3/4" then his real height could be 6 feet.
Rocky said on 14/May/08
The average white American male height 20-39 is 5'9.5'', the median 5'10.5''
Buildwise is a different story.
said on 14/May/08
Bush is definitely 5'11'' or less, not 6'1'' as sometimes listed.
Here's a reference point with 6'0'' Diana Taurasi: Click Here
That is assuming that Taurasi's athletic height and weight is not even listed more favorably than it really is.
paul said on 13/May/08
i am french and on my country the average height is 175 FOR the man.i m 5 11 and I think I am normal
MD said on 9/May/08
Actually, the average height for an white American male (20-39), which was measured only a few years ago, is just over 5'10" (5'-10.2")
JackieTreehorn said on 8/May/08
Tucker Carlson estimated him at 5-10 when interviewed on Bubba Love Sponge radio show.
About national averages below: When countries list their averages, they are listing all adults, even old people who have shrunk. It is clear that the average 20something is going to be taller, maybe even more than an inch taller than this average. I would bet the average American 20something is near 5-11 now and can believe the 6-1 claims of some Europeans.

i saw quite some full pictures of President Bush taken with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Sian Loong who was 5ft11.5 stands clearly 6cm topped President Bush. Hes a small guy.. 5ft9.25 i"ll say..
Liza said on 5/May/08
Next to Matt lauer, he looks a little taller, and Matt Lauer is supposed to be like 5'11. If his physical says 5'11.5, why would you say just 5'11?

you are full of it jasper, tallest people are croats, serbians and bosniaks ,average male height is 188cm (6.2)

You don't have to beleive the things Jasper says, but he's dutch and so is surrounded but dutch people 24/7. i myself am 'around' 6'2 and for my age, thats over average, however i swear: for young college students the average is close to 6'3^

I'm a junior indeed (only 14 years old, so don't blame that my english is not perfect) 2nd site 'Arjan's Tall Pages' nice site, but since he is not a doctor...I can't trust on his measurements for 100%...and the third site is made in 2004, so the information from that site, is not corect...

Jasper said on 18/Apr/08
People in the north (Groningen & Friesland) are about 3 cm taller then people from the south, in the bigger city's the people are also about 3 cm taller. So when you walk in Amsterdam you'll see that most YOUNG male adults 17 - 30 are 6'2 (1.88 m) Compared to the dutch avarage (1.85 m) you'll see a gap of 3 cm... So the avarage is surely not below 5'11...

The average height of Dutch males is below 5'11. British being 5'9.
You say the average Dutch man is 6'0-6'1 but the average man in Amsterdam can be as high as 2 inches taller at 6'3. Your figures are inconsistent and wrong.

muckruck said on 12/Apr/08
Mr pres does seem 5'10-5'11. Definetly no shorter than that, judging by the mass of evidence.
Chris said on 10/Apr/08
Jasper, that doesn't mean that 5'11 is short. The same way somebody who is 5'9 in a country where 5'10 is average is not short.
Anonymous said on 10/Apr/08
@ jasper ideed your numbers are correct only 175 is 5'9 and 186 is 6'1.25 but that isthe aerage height for young dutch men and women 18-20 years old
Anonymous said on 10/Apr/08
The picture with McCain (who is listed everywhere as 5'7) shows a maximum height difference of 2 inches, proves once and for all, that Bush is no more than 5'9 barefoot. When he would appear with 6'0 Tony Blair, he was certainly wearing lifts to boost his height.
Viper any comments on my observation?

Dear Ms. Ugh Texan, What kept you from posting the photo of your husband & the President?

My husband had a photo taken with GWB Ugh. Anyway my husband noticed that W was shorter than he is, at 6'1". When the White House sent a copy of the photo, W had been photoshopped to be taller! Business as usual. . .
penalcolony said on 25/Mar/08
GWB's father GHWB is widely acknowledged to be 6'2". (Or was. At 83, he might not be anymore.) Looking at photos of the two of them together, it's hard to believe GWB is taller than 5' 10" -- if that.

in this image BUSH looks almost identical to my height, too bad he's standing on grass but he doesn't look short either.
he's surely no less than 5'11 FOR SURE.
GSP said on 22/Mar/08
"5-11 is getting to be little. For teens and early 20s guys in America, I bet the average height is 5-11."
wait first you say its little then you say its average. If its average or even withing 2 inches of average its not "little".
Jasper said on 21/Mar/08
Down here in Holland 5'11" is small, the avarage men is about 6' - 6'1", (1.86 m) and the avarage women is like 5'7.5" (1.75 m) so a 5'11" guy is quite small in Holland...

JackieTreehorn said on 19/Mar/08
5-11 is getting to be little. For teens and early 20s guys in America, I bet the average height is 5-11. (I realize it is slightly under 5-10 when you include older people). There are also more and more younger 6-3+ guys. A 5-11 guy standing next to a 6-3 guy looks like a "little guy".

Then Mccain is the shortest looking 5-9 guy Ive ever seen.

5'9" looks spot on for McCain.

Mccain 5-9 1/2 - 5-10? LOL. Hes barely 5-7.
someone from his campaign said he's 5ft 9.
JOhn said on 18/Mar/08
You cant go by Mccain pics because Mccain probably has lifts for a presidential canidate boost
Stiffelio said on 10/Mar/08
I agree with runt, but I only see a 1" to 1 1/2" height difference between Bush and McCain. I think McCain is between 5'9 1/2" and 5'10"
Stiffelio said on 7/Mar/08
Hey runt, I only saw 1 inch height differential between Bush and McCain.
runt said on 6/Mar/08
George Bush's endorsement of John McCaine has pics on every newpaper. He's only 2 inches taller than McCaine. Either McCaine is 5'9" to Bush's 5'11" or Bush is 5'9" to McCaine's 5'7"

My Grandfather took a photo with Bush a couple years back. My Grandfather slouches a good bit, so he appears around 5'9". Bush stood up very straight in the picture, but was no more than 1.5 to 2 inches taller than my Grandfather. Bush is no less than 5'10.5", but no more than 5'11".
GSP said on 22/Feb/08
I saw mccain on tv and allways thought he was like 5'7 but it was weird..he was taller than/basically towering every male he walked past..I dont know if he had lifts or they were all like 5'5 males but it was odd. I only watched for a few mins though . He must be 5'9ish I would think.
Lebensdorf said on 22/Feb/08
No, 5'11'' is not little. In the US, you would have to be less than 5'9.25'' to be considered under-average height. I seriously doubt the president looks taller than 5'10.5'' and if celebrities can put down exaggerated heights in their CVs, presidents can too.
This wouldn't be the first time this president exaggerated information.
chris175 said on 10/Feb/08
i cant believe he called 5-11 little, its a great height in my eyes
said on 9/Feb/08
Anonymous, Brown and Bush looked a very similar height on the visit. Sometimes Bush even looked taller, but for the most they were very similar. Certainly not a 2 inch advantage to Brown. See these pics Click Here
and Click Here
It's actually possible to get pics with either looking taller. Bush is 5'11 or close to it in my view because he looked only an inch shorter than Blair.
Anonymous said on 8/Feb/08
He looks 1 - 2 inchs shorter than the 5'11" Gordan Brown, when Brown was in America! see pics posted below. To me it is clear Bush is only a max 5'9" barefoot.
A-Bomb said on 8/Feb/08
Hey Rob how about adding the now presumptive GOP nominee Senator John McCain. I know you're not big on political figures, but Hillary is here. McCain, now in his 70s, personally doesn't look anything past 5'8" to me, but 5'9" may be a fairer starting point for him.
Neonmir said on 7/Feb/08
If Bush was 5 ft 11.75 in at his measurements, then his real height is 6 feet. Hours have passed when he got measured and the real height is the height after out of bed. Bush is 6 feet at least but looks rather short.
jimmy johnson said on 31/Jan/08
pictures arent good enough for people to differentiate what anyones height is, anbything could affect the results, level of ground, posture, distance, shoes that are being worn, literally just about anything can affect pictures, its not a legitimate means of evidence
jimmy johnson said on 31/Jan/08
how can you say i dont think hes 5"11" that he looks more like 5"9.75, im sorry i didnt realize by looking at a picture you could accurately distinguish the 1.25" differnce, if his physical says hes 5"11" he more than likely is just that, regardless why is anyone gonna fight about it, i simply just wanted to know for myself and found this forum where everyones making an ass of themselves
Brandon said on 28/Jan/08
Bush is really 5'11. My dad who is 6'2, met him years ago and told me that he is almost 6 feet tall.
Charliemoto said on 27/Jan/08
GWB looks quite tall in the Chervrolet image, he does look 5'11 to me.
Real said on 25/Jan/08
President Bush doesn't know how to receive a handoff.. you're supposed to raise the inside arm so that the quarterback can jam the ball into your stomach. with that aside, maybe he said little guy when referring to 5'11 because he knows that he's really around 5'9? heck 5'9 isn't even that little..
JT said on 18/Jan/08
Laura - that's a late model Chevy Suburban which has a height between ~ 6'1.5" and 6'4.5" depending on the model (2WD, 4WD, etc.). Where'd you get 5'9" from? Plus, Bush is standing behind the vehicle.

that photo of leak and bush is awful, its just slightly favouring leak, slightly :)
look at the dude far right dreadlocks with the "F" on his jacket he is about 6'4 but looks the same height as bush from that angle, he looks the same height as the dude next to him, now here is a better photo Click Here
leak is also wearing big a*s cowboy boots there giving him an inch easy on bush's footwear, leak is 5'11.875" tall so basically 6'2 in cowboys there, bush is 5'11.5 barefoot and probably 6'0.5" in shoes Click Here
Alex said on 18/Dec/07
If Leak was measured 5'11 3/4 likely it was in the morning so he may be really 5'11 1/4-5'11 1/2 only but the picture is favoring him but he still would have at least 1-1.5 inches on Bush. Bush is 5'10 I think.
Lynn said on 15/Dec/07
I disagree a little with you.
The analysis of a tons of pics shows that Bush is around 178 cm ( 5'10" ) barefeet before bed.
kevint said on 15/Dec/07
Regarding the above quote, 5' 11" is not little; it's slightly taller than average. Which Bush is not.
Barefoot, he can't be over 5' 9" at most. He should be downgraded. If the White House physicals list him as 5' 11.5", they are measuring him with his Tony Lama boots on.
old jonnie said on 15/Dec/07

Viper said on 10/Dec/07
I have my doubts on Troy Smith being 6-0, actually lol. I joke that he stood on his tip toes when they measured him. He just physically looks 5-10-5-11. But anyway can we somehow verify that they are standing on even ground? That picture could go a long way because Bush looks 2 inches shorter at the very least next to a measured 5-11 3/4 person. Maybe 2.5 in total.

Drew Brees and Troy smith are also around 6 feet. GWB is not that close to their heights. I say he is indeed 5'9.75

Bush could be 5'11 3/4 laying down, which would be his height leaning on one leg. In other words, standing up bepidally, he should be 5'11 MAX.

said on 19/Sep/07
dear editor Rob: i only have one more question what do you consider being the tall zone?
well it can be subjective. In general terms there's degrees of tallness, a 6ft -6ft 2 man is tall, 6ft 4 is very tall to me.
CarbonM5 said on 18/Sep/07
Don't understand some of these posts but suffice it to say that Arnold cannot possibly be 5-11 if Bush is still 5-11 plus.
Lynn says - "But now we agree that Arnold is nowdays less than 6" ( glenn for example says 5'11")and is still taller than Bush."
Arnold is taller than Bush because he is taller than a 5-11 man. End of.
said on 17/Sep/07
dear editor Rob,
i'm 5'11.5" just bare footed and 6'1" in my Nike Shox
would you consider me a tall guy or kinda short in the scheme of things?
kinda short at 182cm...only if you hang about with basketball players all day ;)
you're above average, bordering close to the 'tall zone'.
Lynn said on 14/Sep/07
ok, sorry for my previous post.
The facts are that Bush is shorter than Blair that SURELY is 6' even, and he hes shorter than Arnold that nowdays seems MAX 5'11.5".
And he seems equal or a little shorter than Gordon Brown, 5'11" officially.
So Gonzalo let us continue to discuss using real facts.

LYNN, I DON´T THINK BUSH IS THAT TALL. HE IS TALLER THAN 5´11 IN MY OPINION BUT NO MORE THAN 6`0

@Gonzalo and Rob,
so Coffee Shop is right, President Bush is at least 6'1", maybe 6'1.5"

Franco, Prodi is taller than 1`68 bareffot. Camon, he doesn´t look that short. I haven´t seen him in the flesh but I have seen him next to people I actually met (for instance Javier Solana) and Prodi looks around my height or 1`74-75

bush is a tall guy prob 6'1" or maybe even 6'2" on a good day
stay off the caffeine :)
Lynn said on 8/Sep/07
before knowing this site I evaluated " with large range" Bush height between 178 cm and 182 cm.
But now we agree that Arnold is nowdays less than 6" ( glenn for example says 5'11")and is still taller than Bush.
So I agree with my compatriot Franco. Bush is 178 cm barefeet before bed.
so Prodi only 168 cm barefeet. I agree.
How much about Fini, Rutelli, Veltroni and above all Berlusconi?
dmeyer said on 27/Aug/07
you should give him peak height
said on 27/Aug/07
rob, do you think his annual fitness exam height of 5'11.5 is exaggerating the truth? Its just a half inch, but if bush was at one point 5'11.75 that means he was a weak 6 foot.
do you trust your government are telling the truth, maybe I should trust them on this and just give him his due of 5ft 11.75 peak. I mean, the government have no reason to lie now...

i need you to take a look at this picture, one of the best pictures there is.
i feel he is 178cm without shoes, looks 181cm with shoes. Romano Prodi is 168cm no shoes and 172-173cm in shoes.
MD said on 31/Jul/07
Brown is simply taller than Bush. That's all there is too it, if only marginally taller.
said on 31/Jul/07
Yes Rob, but if someone sees an unexpected result like that, you would think they would assume uneven ground was the reason, not leap on it as fact.
I just looked again - it's hard to see how much the path could be giving, but I notice in more than one pic Brown is kind of giving himself a leg up - here
said on 31/Jul/07
It's total nonsense to day Brown is 2-3 inches taller than Bush. There are pics from the summit where they look the same size, pics where Brown looks taller and pics where Bush looks taller. It depends on camera angle, who is slouching and whether the ground is even. This vid Click Here
suggests at the outset that Brown is around an inch taller, but I've seen a pic and that path isn't even. Later in the vid we see them shaking hands after the press conference (2m 48s) and walking off and, if anything, Bush looks to have the edge. In any case, talk of Brown being 2-inches taller is ridiculous.
people were going by the part where they walked from chopper and then stopped and posed. At that moment brown did appear a good 2 inches taller, but ground uneven.

Hey MD excellent point, I also posted the vid on the height request page, always thought Brown was 5'11 but he looks a even 6', I've seen quite a few vids on tv of Brown walking with Blair over the last few weeks what with all the retrospectives on Blair and all and he just looks the same height, one or two times he even looked 1" taller!
He's easily taller than Bush by 2-3 inches, your photo shows that. Looks like Bush was told that Brown was shorter than Blair and therefore wouldn't need his lifts, wooops!

The serial killing chimpanzee is also short like a chimpanzee. j/k, he's prolly a 5'10.5 lift wearer. 5'11 in his prime.
said on 29/Jul/07
British Prime Minister is nothing more than 5'11", correct? Yet more proof Bush isn't even 5'11". I mean, you can even look at the photos of him and Prince Charles to see that.
You can tell, even with the bad angle, that Brown is taller.

Bush father looks taller than 6`2, at least in his heyday. George W. Bush looks 5`11 minimum
RICHARD said on 28/Jun/07
His dad is 6'2 and brother is 6'3. Why isn't he in the 6' range ??? I think the 5'11 listing is accurate

I met President Bush when he was here in Springfield. I am 5.11 in shoes and he was about the same heigth as me.
Mr. R said on 14/Jun/07
Rob, I too just saw the doc "Journey With George", and he did pasue as he said "about 5-11". In the scene, Pelosi has her absentee ballot, and asks W why she should vote for him. She asks: "What are you gonna do for the little guy"? His answer: I am the little guy. I'm about...5-11. Have you noticed that Jeb is 6-3"? That word about indicates that he may not quite be 5-11.

Yes, Bush is about the same height as our president, 182+ cm.
Bulgarian said on 11/Jun/07
Bush is in my country Bulgaria and he was standing straight next to our president(185 cm) and prime minister(178 cm). So I garantee you that Bush is in the range 182-183 cm.
dmeyer said on 28/May/07
if he got mesured 5'11.5 wath dont you give him or maybe he got mesure in the morning i do get mesure 182 at the doctor in the morning so 5'11 might be is minimum height if he got mesured early aftrnoon ypou should give him 181 cm
MD said on 24/May/07
Which media, rollablunt? Because, because of the annual presidential health check-ups, I don't think Bush has ever been given anything over 6'0"
Anonymous said on 22/May/07
Bush is 5'8 to 5'9 barefoot and does wear lifts. Prince Charles is 5'9 (Diana was 5'10)Bush does look short on TV. No way near 5'11
rollabluntallitaftermath said on 12/May/07
Aww, the media gives him 6'1.
Tony G said on 9/May/07
I've read that Dick Cheney is 5'8". Sounds about right.
Paddington said on 6/May/07
How tall is Dick Cheney? He's officially listed at 5'10", but this sounds like an extreme crock. I'm guessing 5'7".
dmeyer said on 28/Apr/07
george might be might height 5'11.75 morning and 5'11 night
Viper said on 24/Apr/07
I was measured by the doctor when I had a mandatory checkup before I went to college. It was part of the physical.
said on 24/Apr/07
He is a legit 5'10.5"(178.5), but no way 5'9", so maybe the 5'11" claimed was correct for when in his 20's and 30's. Certainly not a "little guy" like he claims; maybe he feels small 'cause his dad and recent former Presidents were giant? Compare him to Tony Blair here Click Here
- there is around 1.5 inch difference (photo from May 2006).
Check out Tony Blair's page on this site....he's a certain 6ft dead!
dmeyer said on 22/Apr/07
are you sayng he could be 182 or atleast was 182cm
glenn said on 22/Apr/07
i was measured on occasion at the hospital.no bone loss here.
MD said on 22/Apr/07
Where are you a medical student?
Paddington said on 21/Apr/07
I'm a third year medical student. In my past year of clinical rotations, I have never seen an adult's height be measured, whether it's in the hospital or in a doctor's office. I think the only reason it would be done is if one complained about height loss due to osteoperosis. When you see someone's height written on a medical report, it's self-reported.
MD said on 18/Apr/07
I'm not sure what's so funny. It's been a joke every time. You can keep an incorrect quote up if you'd like, but I'll correct anyone that tries to quote it.
said on 17/Apr/07
Rob, you may want to add that to the quote. There is no use in having an incorrectly worded quote.
I quoted it from the cnn transcript with no about, or one transcript. But, this does not change the 2 medicals he's had, those speak no abouts, but merely the morning truth ;)
Anonymous said on 17/Apr/07
Prince Charles was 5-9.5 peak height, now he is 5-9.
said on 15/Apr/07
Hey, Rob. I was just watching "Journeys with George" by Alexandra Pelosi, which you quote, in bold, at the top of the page. You did get something wrong with the quote, though. The exact line was:
"Have you noticed (or something to that extent) that I'm ABOUT 5'11", my brother is 6'3"..."
Just a correction.
yeah, he doesn't want to say 5ft 11 and 3/4, so he used about ;) He has no ego, 100% honesty from this guy!
Tactition said on 11/Apr/07
I seriously am laughing at all of you. Yes, this site is fun to kill some time here and there, but when you argue about someone being 5-9 to 5-10.5 and up to 5-11 for a week straight, it's like WOW - are you kidding me? This site is here to make money and nothing else. NOT because Glenn or Rob live to keep all of us informed ok. George W. Bush is 5-9 to 5-10 MAX - big deal...What do you think he would be more macho at 5-11? Seriously, lets keep it real people. He is 5-9 - 5-10, hell if it makes him feel better about himself as a person give him 5-11 - WHO CARES! The richest man in the world is 5-9ish, height doesn't mean Jack and I think it's time you people stop being brainwashed by the media into thinking what's important and what is not.
said on 5/Apr/07
Ha Rob! Makes a fellow wonder... Anyway, I found the article. It is entitled "Is the president shrinking?" I just now realized that it is a politically oriented type website, however. Looks to be on the left of center. The information may still be real, who knows? If you want to read about it and more spinal variations throughout the day that most of us know about it's Click Here
it was reported on many news sites, he had a 4 hour 'examination' weight 191.6, height 5ft 11.5, all in the 4-page report.
100% government truth...
said on 5/Apr/07
Rob, I am not sure that it has been posted on this page, I'd be surprised if it hasn't been. I remember reading an article a couple months ago that stated for Bush's annual checkup he measued a 1/4 inch shorter this recent time. He must be given a current height 5-10 3/4 and a peak height of 5-11. :P Seriously though I'll try to find the article - it was an online one.
Same way Clinton became 6ft 2.5, maybe Bush got the benefit of out of bed measurement...surely your government doesn't lie about such a trivial thing as the President's height. I mean if they lie about something like that...what else they feeding the american folk!!!
