Our Sam Cooke president don't know much

Mark J. Fitzgibbons
The Daily Caller reports that one Columbia University donor claims to know Barack Obama had a 2.6 grade point average at the school.  Obama's GPA, of course, remains unconfirmed because he refuses to authorize disclosure of many of his records.

Many successful people were poor students, drop outs, or even did not attend college.  If Obama's GPA were only 2.6, there's little reason to place much emphasis on it.

It's Obama's performance in office that counts.  Yet even that seems reminiscent of the Sam Cooke song, "Wonderful World." 

The Obama presidency has been built on a disregard for history, science and math.  History shows that government unconstrained by law is tyranny.  Science proves that man's greatest achievements have been best achieved with the humility of our limitations, a virtue sorely lacking in this White House, yet with a sense of optimism.  Math proves that you can't spend more money than you have without adverse consequences.

The Obama presidency is based on suspending or ignoring those lessons and disciplines that are the basis for human achievement.  If only we would love Obama, what a wonderful world it would be:

Don't know much about history
Don't know much biology
Don't know much about a science book
Don't know much about the french I took

But I do know that I love you
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be

Don't know much about geography
Don't know much trigonometry
Don't know much about algebra
Don't know what a slide rule is for

Now I don't claim to be an "A" student
But I'm trying to be
So maybe by being an "A" student baby
I can win your love for me
