    Vince Young. Talk about a study in epic failure. In addition to his massive NFL salary, he got about $30 million in endorsement contracts. Not surprised to hear he's stupid. But hey, if he served a purpose for his college, I'm all for it.

    Last I heard that moron was a free agent. A bankrupt one to boot.

    Yea, he's living back in his old hood which is just North Side Houston Ghetto.

    I live in Houston so I know where it is. Quite a fall.

    It's sad too, because he has some natural talent, IMO. Dumbasses can't handle money. So many of them.

    that's just psychobabble. If Obama had been a superstar at columbia, we would have heard about it. Politicians always brag about things that will help them

    sure-if he released his transcripts. I believe he made high honors at Harvard. Two of the guys in my former officer were Harvard Magnas--it was top 15-20% IIRC. HLS published a list of those who made honors, high honors and Highest Honors (which sometimes was no one-apparently CJ Roberts was only a magna but first in his class while former Bush SG Paul Clement as well as Scalia were Summa cum laude)

    If he made high honors at Harvard, why would he have needed affirmative action help?

    that's a stupid question. what you do after you get in has no relevance on your application

    he didn't have the grades when he applied

    Now you're leaping to superstar? You don't have to be a superstar, even to get into Harvard. The fact is, you have no evidence. It's just a narrative you want to believe.

    Btw, how good a student was Bush? Just to compare how you view these things.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
