Our Modern Pericles

He continues to inspire

On Tuesday, Obama took another shot at liberal arts students, suggesting that he only majored in humanities because he “misspent” his high school years.

During a Q&A hosted by Tumblr, one user asked Obama how America could “promote growth in STEM fields without putting humanities on the back burner.”

“First of all,” Obama began, “I want to say, I was a humanities major. So I majored in political science and minored in English.”

But according to Obama, those majors blossomed from a desire to slack off during high school. “I actually loved math and science until I got into high school,” he reminisced, “and then I misspent those years.
And the thing about the humanities was, you could kind of talk your way through classes, which you couldn’t do in math and science, right?

That sort of sums up his Presidency, doesn’t it?

    That is most definitely the perfect summation as he has also misspent the last 5 1/2 years.

    I’ve yet to meet a Liberal who wasn’t math challenged.
