Actually, it shows Bush superior to Kerry, but who's quibbling?
John Kerry at Yale
The big news here is that Kerry actually signed and submitted his form 180 (see Errata), so I guess we'll  soon be reading that he  actually did  earn that Purple Heart he nominated himself for ...  a week before he even heard hostile fire in Vietnam. </dripping sarcasm>   I have reproduced this article in full so I  can refer to it 10 years from now after Doris Kearns Goodwin's biography of Bush is published.  You know, the one depicting him as another good natured Republican dunce (using  DKG as representative here boss).  Of course this whole business of grades, IQ and the like are smoke.  More important is a man's integrity, backbone, and ideology.  No Democrat in my lifetime beats Bush on those points.

If you collect stuff like this, here's further refutation of the pack of lies foisted on us by Democratic operatives.  Oh, and this too (although I  erred when I said he joined the Navy after condemning the Vietnam war.  He had already enlisted.)  Is it too early for my breakfast Scotch? 

Transcript shows Kerry's Yale grades similar to Bush

BOSTON --Sen. John F. Kerry's academic performance at Yale University was virtually identical to President George W. Bush's academic record, despite repeated portrayals of Kerry as being more intellectual than his Republican rival, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

The Globe, which obtained Kerry's transcript from his U.S. Navy officer training school application after Kerry gave permission for its release, said Kerry had a cumulative grade average of 76 for his four years at Yale and received four Ds his freshman year.

In 1999, The New Yorker published a transcript showing Bush had a cumulative grade average of 77 his first three years at Yale, and a similar average under a non-numerical rating system his senior year.

Kerry, D-Mass., had previously declined to release the transcript, which was included in his Navy records. He had refused to waive privacy restrictions for the full file during the presidential campaign, but gave the Navy permission to release the documents last month, the newspaper reported.

His freshman year, Kerry had an average of 71. He earned a 61 in geology, a 63 and a 68 in two history courses, and a 69 in political science. His top scores of 79 and 77 were in political science and French, respectively. At the time, Yale considered grades between 70 and 79 a C and 60 and 69 a D.

"I always told my Dad that D stood for distinction," Kerry said in a written response to reporters' questions. He said he has previously acknowledged focusing more on learning to fly than studying. In his Navy application, Kerry said he had spent much of his college career in extracurricular activities, including the Yale Political Union, the Debating Association and the Skull and Bones Society.

His grades improved later, however, as he averaged an 81 his senior year and earned an 89 -- his highest grade -- in a political science class as a senior. He was also chosen to deliver the senior class oration, in which he questioned the wisdom of the Vietnam War.

According to The New Yorker article, Bush's highest grade at Yale was an 88 in anthropology, history and philosophy. He received one D in his four years, a 69 in astronomy, and like Kerry, improved his grades after his freshman year.

"I did not vote for Obama but he is remarkable. In less than three weeks in office he has collected more than $150,000 in back taxes."
Gayle Miller
Kerry is not as dumb a student as we thought. It must have been the drugs he took after college that turned his brain to mush.

Kerry? Drugs? Say it ain't so ... Actually, I may be having a brainal infarct here, but I don't remember off hand any dope charges. Were there?

Hey, if Kerry got 4 Ds his first year and Bush got one ever, that kinda suggests Kerry's average was pulled out by one good grade (in French). My reading of this is if Kerry were a regular kid, he'd have flunked out. One D you can explain but 4?

As to drugs, he's a Democrat Roger, no one would report that. Look at Bill Clinton...
