So, it turns out that John Kerry's grades were actually worse than Bush's were at Yale.
Mr. Kerry had a cumulative average of 76, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday. He had four D's his freshman year - a 61 in geology, a 63 and a 68 in two history courses, and a 69 in political science. He also received one D in his sophomore year, The Globe reported. He graduated in 1966.
The Democratic candidate for president, Mr. Kerry had previously declined to release his college transcript, which was included in his Navy records. He gave the Navy permission to release the documents last month, The Globe reported.
The president's transcript was published in 1999 by The New Yorker magazine. It showed that Mr. Bush, who graduated in 1968, had a cumulative grade average of 77 in his first three years at Yale and a similar average under a nonnumeric rating system in his senior year.
I wonder if that's the real reason he didn't want his Navy records released?
