Quote of the day

By jdclyde ·
'It's amusing that Andrew M. Cuomo, (who owes his whole career to his dad,) may not get the Senate seat of Hillary Rodham Clinton (who owes her whole career to her husband) because David A. Paterson (who owes his whole career to his dad) may give it to Caroline Kennedy (who owes her whole career to her dad).

You would think a state as large as New York could find someone who deserves something on his or her own." --Washington Times editor Wesley Pruden.

Republicans do any different in nominating and choosing their own.

Nice liberty from the bias there, Max.

..... choosing one's own and choosing one's own only because he/she has pedigree, but no qualifications.

Caroline Kennedy's qualifications - in, you know, her own words:

I could probably find the video where Bush encouraged college grads who were mediochre to not worry cause they could come to be president like he had.

Basically, he admitted he wasn't that smart. :^0

Here, let me help you recall the Bush comments. I don't want to be, uh, you know, like, biased, you know. (A little Caroline Kennedy lingo.)

He kept the mood light while honoring the school where he received his bachelor's degree.

Bush poked fun at his average college record while at the Ivy League school. "And to you 'C' students, you too can be president of the United States," he said to a crowd that rippled with laughter.

The president also got in a good-natured jab at his vice president, who attended Yale for a time. "A Yale degree is worth a lot, as I often remind **** Cheney, who studied here but left a little early," Bush said. "So now we know, if you graduate from Yale, you become president. If you drop out, you get to be vice president."

The president had one big punchline left for the crowd, tying it to the school's reputation as a bastion of liberal thought and its tradition of not having a commencement speaker unless it is the president of the United States.

"Most people think that to speak at Yale's commencement, you have to be president. But over the years, the specifications have become far more demanding," the self-described compassionate conservative noted. "Now, you have to be a Yale graduate, you have to be president, and you have had to have lost the Yale vote to Ralph Nader."

And you call ME bias? Are you serious?

oh yes

by jck In reply to P.S. - Let's compare . . ...

I am biased...because Bush didn't encourage those who made 'C's like him to work harder...but...just not to worry cause they can be president too.

Go figure. I am to blame for Bush's hubris and rather lacking scholastic career by him.

Next thing you know, you'll be blaming me for serving him the alcohol before his drunk driving charge. :^0

Nice one. When will you be performing at Caroline's? :^0

Oh yes, you presented that instance. . . . .
