Bush’s former professor says he’s not qualified to be president

Like this is any surprise? Unceremoniously and shamelessly lifted from Rob's Blog:

A former teacher of U.S. President George Bush on Friday questioned his qualifications as president in an address to foreign reporters in Japan.

"I always remember two groups of students. One is the really good students, not only intelligent, but with leadership qualities, courage. The other is the total opposite, unfortunately to which George belonged."

"President Bush can no longer be reelected on the basis of his - quote unquote - leadership," Tsurumi, who was Bush’s professor at Harvard Business School, told his audience in reference to November’s presidential election in the United States.

He recalled a conversation with Bush when he met him soon after he arrived at Harvard.

"I asked him, ’What have you been doing ? How about Vietnam ?’ and he said, ’Well, I’ve been in the National Guard in Texas.’ I said, ’How did you get that ? There’s a 10-year waiting list.’ And he said, ’Well, my dad has connections."’

"In my class, he (Bush) declared that ’people are poor because they are lazy.’ He was opposed to labor unions, social security, environmental protection, Medicare and public schools. To him, Franklin D Roosevelt’s New Deal was ’socialism,"’ Tsurumi said.

Oh man, I have had to take a break from everything that is wrong. But I am back. Well, we all knew this about Bush, no? And his supporters don't care, right? So where does that leave us? What will this small nation of those who know do about it? Something new must rise. None of the old protestations have any power.

By the way, Cookie, you said to keep you posted about my medical testing. The doctor wasn't there yesterday, but someone from the office informed me that my test results were "essentially normal". I think that is a good thing, although I don't know what the word "essentially" is supposed to mean in this context.

Yes. I have to block a lot of it out --- it's just too overwhelming and they're so freaking insane.

I'm really glad to hear the tests came back normal. I didn't want to ask but I've been worrying, checking your blog every day for an update. Maybe the problem is teaching? :=D Those students can easily drive you bats. It can be hard reaching a kind of middle ground between being fair to them but protecting your health and sanity!! Especially if your guys are teenagers (? are they?). I have some teens in my classes - 18-19-20 year olds - and holy moly! They're worse than 3 year olds, a lot of them!

I was teaching alternative high school for years, which is where I wanted to be... with the druggies and rejects of society. They closed our school two years ago (it wasn't making enough money for them because we wouldn't lie for them anymore- they had used it for a cash cow for years by enrolling lots of students who didn't ever show up) and moved the teachers to middle school. So I teach 15 year olds. 155 of them every day. I seriously don't know if it is that much worse than your age group. Closed minds are everywhere. At least I can use age as an excuse for mine. The teachers in my school are so maxed out right now, with so much expected of them...everyone's over the edge. Plus it's February, which has to be the hardest month of the year in my neck of the woods. Weekends just aren't long enough.....
