“Extraordinary Circumstances,” Indeed!
George Bush, to students at Gulf Coast Community College:
You continued your studies in classrooms with crumbling walls. You lost homes, and slept in tents near campus to finish courses. You cleared debris during the day and you went to class at night. You worked past exhaustion to catch up.
Did Bush, quoted as saying he’s “never lived around poor people” and therefore doesn’t “know what they think,” wonder to himself why some of these students didn’t choose an easier path to academic and financial success? I mean, honestly, didn’t they realize they could have simply parlayed dog-walking or breath-mint-carrying into a coveted slot at Harvard Business School? (h/t TPM)
I’ll make it worth your while…heh heh…
