Grade Inflation 101

Bush today at a press conference:

QUESTION: Do you think there’s a risk of a recession? How do you rate that?

BUSH: You know, you need to talk to economists. I think I got a B in Econ 101. I got an A, however, in keeping taxes low and being fiscally responsible with the people’s money.

It’s nice to see that Bush admits to not being an A student in economics.  Unfortunately, he’s still lying.  If you look at his economics grade at Yale, he got a 71 and a 72.

That’s a C-.

UPDATE:  Like Carpetbagger, I don’t quite understand why Bush thinks his anti-intellectualism is cause for merriment.
