I wonder what is on the Mittster's tax return that he does not want us to see?Page 4 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

To keep you tied over until the next shoe or flip flop drops, I give you this:

Mitt Romney Has the Lowest Favorability Rating Of Any Presidential Nominee In Modern History — Including All Of the Eventual Losers

Now that you found one where you like the results, I guess polls are all of a sudden worthy of being reported on here. Shocking.

Does this mean that you are now one of the people stupid enough (your words) to think that polls matter?

Or are you just purposely trying to mislead people by spreading information on here that you know means nothing?

Which is it?

Funny, people who scream about birth certificates, are surprisingly quiet about tax returns. Furthermore, what is he hiding, since the 47% won't vote for him anyways?

As someone who lives down the road from Accidental College, I want to see how Obama did there.

Does anyone wonder why Romney doesn't like his first name?
Could it be that "Willard" got too much press during Clinton's impeachment?

What is the "uber reicht?" Oh, I get it! You're making a word play by combining "right" with "Reich," the German word that means "state" or "regime," to try to associate conservatives with Hitler's Third Reich! Just what I'd expect from such a clever, original mind! Were you inspired by the Daily Kos, Michael Moore, or old Soviet propaganda?

Too bad you've got it just backwards. If there is a modern-day American counterpart of Sturmabteilung brownshirts--many of whom socialists--it is intolerant leftist drones. When they aren't trying to destroy freedom of speech and freedom of religion, they are carrying water for the Muslim jihadist lice who share their low opinion of freedom and their urge to control other people. In short, these malcontents are the statist enemies of personal liberty, like their hero, Barry the Red.

Being black doesn't hurt. I have heard from law school professors that they are pressured to admit minority applicants who have LSAT scores and grades that wouldn't get a white applicant in. I'm sure our First Lady, the Queen Bee, must have caught some big breaks, having read some of her senior thesis from Princeton. It is an embarrassingly dumb, cliche-ridden piece of tripe about the hardships of being a black attending an Ivy League school. Apparently she thought Princeton was downright mean like the rest of this country.

calling on dadums and mumsy's friends for connections to jobs or business...they speak with locust valley lockjaw accents like thurston Howell...hang out in the hamptons polo club or the yacht club(wherever it might be). They regard anybody not born in the right section of town as inferior, and anybody who attended city college as a boob.


I would have sworn, reading that, that you were talking about Franklin Delano Roosevelt.



First I'd like to remind you that Republicans are supposed to be against playing the race card.


Seems to me you're the one doing that. I just related what I heard from a couple law school professors I used to chat with about how far they were expected to lower the bar for minority applicants.



First since you are judging her paper, how about your bona fides to do so?


Maybe I don't have any bona fides--whatever those are--but then maybe I don't need any. Any reporter for the society or sports page of the local town rag could tell her paper was barely fit for lining a bird cage.



You are hardly qualified to insult someone's college record who has a far more accomplished college record than you.


Well, I'd be the first to admit a whole lot of people have far more accomplished college records than mine. Actually, your President and I were both at Accidental College for a while, although not quite at the same time. Somehow I was able to take my attention off girls long enough to make the Dean's List there a couple times. Can't say how Barry did there academically--all I've heard is stories about him sashaying around campus in the company of his best buddy.

I was talking about Michelle Robinson's senior thesis. You know her--the ideal First Lady, who thinks this is a downright mean country and has said several times she had never been proud of it in her adult life before her husband ran for President, the haughty scold who wants to tell us all what kind of rabbit food to eat, while she always seems to be stuffing her face with pizza or ribs or ice cream. Did she graduate magna cum laude from someplace, or was she ever a law professor? Hadn't heard that.

Oy, I didn't know that Mitt takes it through the brown eye, but there is chatter
of Barry's Occidental years with a very close "Pockastani" roomate, who
financed Barry's world tour that summer.
In fact, on the web you can see a pic of the two of them, sitting close on a sofa,
looking quite buzzed and enjoying their educational experience together.

Are you saying that Yale grads in the 60's had below C averages???


^^^^Probably because he graduated from YALE in the top 85% of his class


In fact, George W. Bush has openly released his Yale University undergraduate transcript. As you can see, Bush truly was a solid C student. He never got an A in anything the entire time that he was in college (although he never got a D or an F either). Bush almost got As in history and anthropology, and earned a high pass in Japanese, of all things. However, he received a 71 and a 73 respectively in his two political science and government classes. His lowest grade was in sociology — a 70.

No, they had a C average, which is average for most any school. , but since you have some demented agenda, you tell me. Nevermind...I already know the truth.

Bush, Gore, & Kerry all performed the same, all ran for president. Actually, Bush had a higher GPA than his opponent John Kerry, who at that time had a higher GPA than the man who had formally held the title, Al Gore.


If the answer is YES, then the question should really be, how did dumbfvcks like Gore & Kerry graduate, let alone run for president(& lose to Bush..LMAO!!!)




Kerry, Bush GPAs At Yale Similar


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 Ds his freshman year - in geology, two history courses and political science, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

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

"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.

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 1999, The New Yorker magazine 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.

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 improved his grades after his freshman year, the transcript showed.

Kerry, a Democrat, previously declined to release the transcript, which was included in his Navy records. He gave the Navy permission to release the documents last month, the Globe reported.

Kerry graduated from Yale in 1966, Bush in 1968.

1. HE GRADUATED FROM YALE IN THE TOP 85% OF HIS CLASS. THIS IS WHERE MOST ALL AVERAGE STUDENTS FALL.

2. HE GRADUATED AS AN AVERAGE STUDENT, SAME OR BETTER THAN AL GORE, JOHN KERRY, ETC ETC ETC ETC



3. HERE IS THE DUMBFVCK LINK FROM THE WHITEHOUSE WEBSITE



In 1968, Bush earned His bachelor's degree from Yale, graduating in the top 85%
of His class.

We see who, along with Bush, is the dumb fvck....because, apparently, only the freshman class had class rankings when Bush attended.

Bush's transcript at Yale shows that he was a solid C student. Although a history major, he sampled widely in the social sciences and did poorly in political science and economics while achieving some of his best grades (the equivalent of a B+) in philosophy and anthropology. The transcript indicates that in Bush's freshman year, the only year for which rankings were available, he was in the twenty-first percentile of his class—meaning that four-fifths of the students were above him. Yet at the same time that he was earning Cs at Yale, Bush displayed a formidable intelligence in another way. At his induction into the Delta Kappa Epsilon (DKE) fraternity, he and others were asked to name all fifty-four pledges in the room. Most were were able to name only five or six. When it was Bush's turn, he named every single one. Later he rose to become president of DKE, and he was also tapped into Skull and Bones, an elite secret society to which his father had also belonged.

We are talking about GRADUATING. it says Bush GRADUATED in the top 85% of his class. Why are you cherry-picking his Freshman year only?? Whats your point in all of this?

Oh, I know why. So in the spirit of fair play, lets cherry-pick John Kerry's freshman year & compare that as you wish to do:


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


LMAO....4/5 of the students were also ranked ahead of Kerry in his freshman year...INCLUDING BUSH. Dumbfvck theory intact.

This whole twist in the conversation starts with the accusation of Black applicants getting into Harvard and Yale thru affirmative action…negating the numbers of white males that also get into these fine institutions of higher education thru legacy entrance....which is clearly the only way Bush could have gotten in out of Andover.



it says Bush GRADUATED in the top 85% of his class.


No it doesn’t….this only assertion that Bush graduated in the top 85% of the class comes from one Whitehouse press release. Care to find anyone else making this claim??? Clearly, the only way Bush got into Yale from Andover as thru a legacy entrance.


Why are you cherry-picking his freshman year only??


Why be a cherry picking reader? The article I posted deals with all of Bushs years at Yale…and clearly states class rankings were only done for the freshman year at that time

But, yanno…Bushs Yale transcripts are available for those who really seek the truth…so, take a gander at an average student and then make your false claims:

How did Obama gain admittance? Have any proof that it wasnt through affirmative action?


OK...let's just work with this...

Suppose President Obama did get into Harvard thru affirmative action...what better case for affirmative action??? He graduated magna cum laude...was the editor of the Harvard Law Review...became a state senator and then rose to the highest office in America...what a great case for affirmative action assuming this is how he gained entrance to Harvard Law School.

Apparently? LMAO....Apparently, you are now posting bull shyte. There is no reference anywhere on line that says that. One would think that would be big news, since this stink played out in 2004 ad nauseum. Remember?

Liberals quietly closed shop when Kerry's transcripts were released, after a marathon Bush-bashing by liberals claiming he was a dumbfvck lowballer at Yale & Harvard. Kerry matched him grade for grade.LMAO to this day!!!


All links, references & sites say the same thing:
CUMULATIVE GPA:
BUSH 77
KERRY 76

Show a link, reference or site that shows the cumulative GPA is any different.

One would also think that someone who cherry-picked Kerry's freshman year, & is now cherry-picking Kerry's SENIOR year would post corresponding GPA of Bush's senior year as proof of their claim, as I did to refute the bullshyte dumbfvck freshman year claim in post 108.

They were BOTH average students of the day with nearly identical GPAs. 85% of graduates were average. The top 15% were were the top 15%. Neither Bush, Gore, or Kerry, or whichever hero of your choosing were the top 15%. If one is a dumbfvck because of this, then they all were dumbfvcks. Get over it.

But, yanno...you're right...Bush had a GPA of 77 and Kerry had a GPA of 76...

I guess that with your line of reasoning Bush was a top student at Yale who graduated in the 85th percentile...but, other than a WhiteHouse press release...prove it...because with your line of reasoning then Kerry was also in the top 85th percentile...but, I know you can't so keep on posting senseless shyte with no foundation/fact/reality to back it up.

The original statement was that Bush graduated in the top 85% of his class. That means that he did not graduate in the bottom 15%--not that he graduated in the 85th percentile.

It makes no difference anyway. Good grades don't make good presidents, any more than they make good generals. It's well-known that some of the worst generals in the Civil War, on both sides, graduated at the top of their West Point classes, while some of the very best were at the bottom of theirs.

Why doesn't Mitt release his tax returns?

Could it be that he made so much money then pushed so much abroad into tax havens and used so many loopholes that he paid virtually no tax?
That probably wouldn't go over too well with the middle class.

Also known as: Michelle L. Obama, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama ... Michelle Robinson graduated magna cum laude from Princeton in 1985.

As for Bush, he must have been pretty close to 15th percentile at graduation. If he'd still been 21st, he could have graduated in the top 80% of his class. . . . When you're talking about the top xx% you want that number *small* not LARGE. . . . .
