I am not sure what grade have to do with anything but I think this story might be alittle onesided.

As a college student I know that just looking at GPAs and Grades with out seeing class transcripts can be deceptive. How do we know that Kerry was not taking the most challenging ones in the catalogue? He seemed proud of his "D".

Then again I think this is just media backlash. I really hated how the election spun in terms of the amount of play issues got vs things like this.

Stop getting distracted, it's all about the GRADE SCORES damnit!

Yeah you're right. It is all about the grade scores! 1500 mothers, children, brothers, sisters, and fathers dead for no reason. Those ARE just distractions. Good point.





LOL.

Personally I don't vote for politicians for their sex appeal. Seriously, I didn't vote against Bush twice because of his grades. I disagree with his agenda. That's what counts to me. There's too much in campaigns that really isn't pertinent or relevant to the situation.

diamond: do you have anything to offer other than schoolyard taunts and the widely debunked claims of "Swift Boat Veterans" for truth, a group whom no one of any credibility believes?

Why don't we focus on the rest of his terms and see what else Bush will fuck up in this country.

Kerry is in the past.

what's tragic is that Kerry waited until now to release all these military records. what does the Boston Globe say:


WASHINGTON -- Senator John F. Kerry, ending at least two years of refusal, has waived privacy restrictions and authorized the release of his full military and medical records.

The records, which the Navy Personnel Command provided to the Globe, are mostly a duplication of what Kerry released during his 2004 campaign for president, including numerous commendations from commanding officers who later criticized Kerry's Vietnam service.

The lack of any substantive new material about Kerry's military career in the documents raises the question of why Kerry refused for so long to waive privacy restrictions. An earlier release of the full record might have helped his campaign because it contains a number of reports lauding his service. Indeed, one of the first actions of the group that came to be known as Swift Boat Veterans for Truth was to call on Kerry to sign a privacy waiver and release all of his military and medical records.

But Kerry refused, even though it turned out that the records included commendations from some of the same veterans who were criticizing him.






so, please, no more references to Swift Boat Veterans. despite their service in vietnam, their actions in the 2004 elections are a disgrace to our democracy.

and is there anyone else out there who's baffled as to why Kerry didn't release these records and fully torpedo these pathetic MoFos when he had the chance?

Kerry made his service an issue, it is basic politics that that would be targeted.

Heh, well, I personally was never one to give much mention to Bush's grades in school to begin with, so I'm not gonna do it with Kerry, either. And I see the whole thing with the military records is coming up again...that was another subject I got sick to death of hearing about last year.

I just simply agree with this sentiment:

I don't care if Bush was an A+ student-with all the stuff he's done since becoming president, he hasn't shown himself to be a smart person in my eyes, grades at Yale be damned. I can't really imagine Kerry doing a lot of the things that unosdostres14 referred to Bush having done, therefore to me Kerry is smarter than Bush, again, grades at Yale be damned.

Also, I don't think Kerry or Bush are even remotely sexy, so this constant thing of using that word in relation to them is making my stomach do some very unsettling things...
