A former professor of Bush writes:

At Harvard Business School, thirty years ago, George Bush was a student of mine. I still vividly remember him. In my class, he declared that "people are poor because they are lazy." He was opposed to labor unions, social security, environmental protection, Medicare, and public schools. To him, the antitrust watch dog, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Securities Exchange Commission were unnecessary hindrances to "free market competition." To him, Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal was "socialism."

So is this true? Does Bush think poor people are lazy? I think we should open up Bush’s school records to find out. Get his essays, homework, etc., and make them public. (Personally, I doubt the veracity of this story — because I doubt that Bush attended classes and/or participated in them very much).
