Step 1: Nearly flunk of of college
Step 2: Become Governor of the largest state
Step 3: Run for President

Texas seems to be sticking to this recipe after it’s success in the 2000 presidential contest. This time another good ‘ole boy from Texas has his eyes set on the White House. However his grades in college leave me wondering how well qualified he is to be the leader of the free world.

The NY Times Reports:
“His other D’s included courses in the principles of economics, Shakespeare, “Feeds & Feeding,” veterinary anatomy, and what appears to be a course called “Meats,” though the quality of the copy of the transcript makes it hard to tell for certain.”

I’m baffled how a person who is below average in undergraduate Economics, feels he is qualified to run this country, especially with the current state of our economy. If he were elected and doesn’t understand Economics, who would be making the decisions for the country? I hear Dick Cheney is available.
