Perennial leftist Democrat Presidential hopeful John Forbes Kerry made a fool of himself again... KERRY: That's terrific. But 53 percent of our children don't graduate from high school. Kids don't have after-school programs... He didn't ask America to sacrifice anything to achieve great goals and the biggest example is making the tax cut permanent for the wealthiest people in America. The average American struggles to find time to take carry of families, working two or three jobs... It's a disgrace. He did not tell the real state of the union. Kerry's 53% claim conflicts with a recent press release from the U.S. Census Bureau: "High School Graduation Rates Reach All-Time High" And the Census Bureau's own website states: 85.9 Percent Of Americans Aged 20-24 Are High School Graduates. (U.S. Census Bureau Website, www.census.gov , Accessed 2/1/06) ************** But lefties love this guy who made the 'sacrifice' of leaving an Economic Conference at a European 5 star ski resort to come back and embarras his party (again) in a pathetically futile attempt to filibuster an extremely well qualified SCOTUS candidate.
