Rick Perry's Report Card from Texas A & M (not so good)

By Pablo Fanque, National Affairs Editor with research by Jack Brummet, Editor in Chief

Governor, and Presidential hopeful, Rick Perry did not exactly reach for the stars during his college years at Texas A & M University.  Later in his career there, he did become a student leader.  But he could only do that after he emerged from academic probation.  If you check out the transcript below, you will note that he almost never earned a grade higher than a C in his courses -- a C in U.S. History, D in Shakespeare, and a D in economics. One semester, he even got a C in P.E.

The Governor also got shelled in classes in his animal science major.  In fall 1970, he received a D in veterinary anatomy, and flunked a second course on organic chemistry, and took a C in animal breeding. He did receive an A in world military systems and a class called the“Improv. of Learning," which were his only two A's in college. 

"A&M wasn't exactly Harvard on the Brazos River," recalled a Perry classmate in an interview with The Huffington Post. "This was not the brightest guy around. We always kind of laughed. He was always kind of a joke."

40% is not "almost never." You apparently failed basic math. Granted, 60% of grades below "C" hardly qualifies one for the title "scholar!"

Better to criticize him for relevant issues such as his belief that praying to a fairy tale will help the economy. Of course, he did earn a "D" economics.

World Military Systems is Military Science(ROTC)which is usually an easy A.

At least Perry is allowing his transcript to be made public - which is more than can be said for the poser-in-chief.

If you're referring to Obama, he graduated Magna Cum laude from Harvard Law School.

Rick Perry is the kind of guy that makes fucking Jimmy Carter look like Einstein.

Obama was Magna Cum laude from Harvard Law School. And he's paid huge amounts to NOT have his records released. That tells me all I need to know.
