President Barack Obama told an audience of high school students in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday that he was “not always the very best student” and that ethics “would not have made it on the list” of his favorite subjects.

“I was not always the very best student that I could be when I was in high school, and certainly not when I was in middle school,” Obama said, speaking at Benjamin Banneker Academic High School.

“I did not love every class I took. I wasn’t always paying attention the way I should have,” Obama said. “I remember when I was in 8th grade I had to take a class called ethics. Now, ethics is about right and wrong, but if you’d ask me what my favorite subject was back in 8th grade, it was basketball. I don’t think ethics would have made it on the list.”

Probably not to many 8th graders who would disagree.

If you ask some people it would appear his dislike of ethics has carried over into his adult life as well.

Ethics and logic were not his favorite subjects and has become painfully obvious to his adoring collective. Civics, businass, economics, history, and geography were too much for his small mind as well.

I'm surprised he knows what ethics is. He sure demonstrates in his administration that it isn't high on their list. He should have stuck with basketball. The country would have been better off.

Obviously business wasn't on his list of favorite subjects in college. I'd love to see his high school and college grades. And to think of how the libs mocked W. :rolleyes:

Seriously? Even Bush released enough for us to know that he was a C student.

...which can only mean one thing.


If he had good grades, he would not be ashamed to share them.....

That's what I'm thinking.

Or maybe his choice of coursework was a little hinky.

It almost makes you wonder if he went to some of those schools. Strange that no one seems to remember him.

As far the grades, he probably wasn't even a C student. That affirmative action can work wonders.

That in conjunction with cheating on tests and assignments. If you have no ethics, cheating in class would be a no brainer for a left wing flake.
