Comparing the academic performance of Kerry to that of Bush

Regarding Bush’s intelligence and the Democrats’ rhetoric against him on this issue, I found an article that’s a very good read. I discovered it via “I Believe You, Senator Kerry” by S. Weasel of S. Weasel: “Yale grades portray Kerry as a lackluster student” by Michael Kranish of The Boston Globe. (Preserved here in case the link to the article expires.) Puts a different spin on the realities of the issue.

    I can’t work out how getting a C in two of the tougest colleges in America somehow is bad. Great, you did as well as the average student in the college, that’s what a C means. That’s a poor performance? I doubt most people who mock that could even get in Yale.

    I think the telling point is that Kerry improved his GPA each year for the duration of his time at Yale, and then really got his act together in the Navy, whereas W maintained consistently mediocre performance, followed by an undistinguished military career. So, while both Kerry and Bush got off to a poor start, Kerry gradually improved (matured?) and Bush never really did. Couple that with his relatively uninspired performance at Harvard (a former professor there remembered him as “intellectually lazy”) and you can draw a pretty clear distinction.
