    KERRY CLAIMS: 53% OF CHILDREN DO NOT GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL
    Wed Feb 01 2006 10:43:40 ET

    Sen. John Kerry claimed this morning on NBC TODAY that 53% of America's children do not graduate from high school -- a claim that raised eyebrows in the NBC control room, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

    Kerry made the comments after host Katie Couric asked the former presidential candidate about Bush's State of the Union call to train 70,000 additional teachers in math and science.

    COURIC: He wanted to train 70,000 additional teachers in math and science.

    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)

    You guys realize that people only use 3-10% of their brain don't you? You are giving him way too much credit for such a stupid statement. id say about .0000001% assuming it exists.

    As for the statement itself. He really is an idiot. Absolutely 0% of children graduate high school. You see children don't go to high school. Teenagers do.

    Hey at least he doesn't ask our enemies to kill our soldiers.

    "My answer is bring them on." — George Bush on Iraqi insurgents attacking U.S. forces, Washington, D.C., July 3, 2003


    or continuously think about ways to harm the U.S.

    "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." —Bush - Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004

    or want to be dictator


    "If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." —Bush, Washington, D.C., Dec. 19, 2000
