Old News

I should have posted about this a while ago, but I just remembered it while talking to TokenYoungConservative.

It appears that John Kerry wasn't really the intellectual he was all cracked up to be.

"The transcript shows that Kerry's freshman-year average was 71. He scored a 61 in geology, a 63 and 68 in two history classes, and a 69 in political science. His top score was a 79, in another political science course. Another of his strongest efforts, a 77, came in French class.
Under Yale's grading system in effect at the time, grades between 90 and 100 equaled an A, 80-89 a B, 70-79 a C, 60 to 69 a D, and anything below that was a failing grade. In addition to Kerry's four D's in his freshman year, he received one D in his sophomore year."

So his freshman year he got 4 D's.

In a response to the release of his bad grades, he said:

"I always told my Dad that D stood for distinction,"

It would have been great to have a president with that rock-solid reasoning.

And if you are going to comment about how I am just attacking Kerry or that he already lost the election, don't bother. The only reason I insist on posting this is because democrats were so persistent on the "fact" that Kerry was the intellectual and Bush was dumb.

A Tribute to Ronald Reagan

He was a great American. He had a magnificent sense of American pride, and had an aura of optimism. Not only was Ronald Reagan a great president, but he was also a great american.

Ronald Reagan died today, one year ago. That is why I am writing this.

He brought back to the U.S. its pride. Something that had gone away during the Carter years.

He brought back a booming economy.

He brought down the Soviet Union.

He understood the problem with government, that it was to large.

He understood that the American people needed a real leader, and he gave them one.

He understood that the American people wanted his Four Pillars of Freedom: individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride, and he delivered.

When I hear his voice, or see his face, I am reminded that I live in the best nation on the planet. I am comforted that there are leaders like him, and that soon, we may have another one.

"Always remember that you are Americans, and it is your birthright to dream great dreams in this sweet and blessed land, truly the greatest, freest, strongest nation on earth.”
