Kerry dumber than we were lead to believe

Quote:
BOSTON -- Sen. John F. Kerry's grade average at Yale University was virtually identical to President Bush's record there, despite repeated portrayals of Kerry as the more intellectual candidate during the 2004 presidential campaign.

Kerry had a cumulative average of 76 and got four D's his freshman year -- in geology, two history courses and political science, the Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

His grades improved, and he averaged an 81 his senior year and earned an 89 -- his highest grade -- in political science as a senior.

Ooooooo... zing! The point here is that Kerry refused to release his college transcripts until the election was over. Why would he do that? Because one of the Dems' underlying strategies was to paint Bush as "dumb" by saying he graduated with a C average from Yale. So, releasing this transcript during election, showing that Kerry actually made slightly lower grades than Bush, would have given the Republicans plenty of ammo.

LOL, at the rolling eye. What's the matter can't think any words?

Dumb Kerry = Dumb Bush

Transcripts prove it. That's all I said. Jeesh, some of you can read alot of shit into a single phrase.

If you think Kerry, or Bush, are making the laws that control us you are sadly mistaken.

Bush, nor Kerry, would have been in the position to run for election had it not been for the people that pull the strings.

You didn't put them there. The democratic party and the republican party put out a couple of people for you to vote on.

Why do you think we bitch and moan about shit but continually elect people we bitch and moan about?

Kerry missed 87 percent of senate votes in 2004 LOL..... I don't think he was making too many laws. But I digress, and you are correct.
