EnderWiggins why don't we do the math together.
“I graduated from Parochial School 8th grade in 1970” “ I never skipped a grade”
So let's see:
Started 8th Grade in September of 1969
Started 7th Grade in September of 1968
Started 6th Grade in September of 1967
Started 5th Grade in September of 1966
Started 4th Grade in September of 1965
Started 3rd Grade in September of 1964
Started 2nd Grade in September of 1963
Started 1st Grade in September of 1962
Started Kindergarten in September of 1961
You claim to have been born on December 29, 1956, Were you 4 years old when you were sent off to kindergarten? Did you enter the 1st grade at 5?

First you argued that you were just the average age of a West Point Grad at 21. Then you said, “If the average age of highs school graduation is 18, then about half will be younger. See how that works?”
Then you said,”I was not the youngest member of my graduating class by more than a month.” Now you say,”And I was not the youngest member of my West Point Class by more than two weeks.

Nearly everyone knows very few people graduate from High School at 17 probably even you. My wife did but she was the youngest member of every class she was in from grade school through high school. You claim to have graduated the same year she did despite being several months younger. Then you claim you were just the average age of your fellow students as if you wouldn't be acutely aware that you were almost a year younger than many of your classmates through your entire school career as my wife was.

I posted the age requirements to apply for West Point and have never claimed that you could not have graduated when you said you did. I am just curious why you have tried to argue so hard you were the average age of a West Point graduate and have changed your story several times. You do a lot of wiggling in your posts EnderWiggins.

Back then about 1/3 of the kids who started kindergarten were not yet 5. I started kindergarten at age 4. My birthday was in the latter part of November. The cut-off was a birthday after the first of the year.

Oh... sorry I missed this. How droll....

As we have established, you yourself stumbled upon the proof that West Point allows cadets to matriculate who are 17 years and one week old. I was six months older than that, and yes that would have graduated me at 21 years of age and sent me to my first assignment (the nuke one) while still 21.

With that astounding mystery solved... one can only wonder what in my posts have inspired the frothing level of analysis you seem to believe that I deserve. I must have really shaken you up to deserve it. I'm pretty happy with that, actually. My arguments must be strong ones.

"You claim to have been born on December 29, 1956, Were you 4 years old when you were sent off to kindergarten? Did you enter the 1st grade at 5?"

Yes to both.

"I posted the age requirements to apply for West Point and have never claimed that you could not have graduated when you said you did. I am just curious why you have tried to argue so hard you were the average age of a West Point graduate and have changed your story several times.

Okay... okay... you have stoned me to death with popcorn, beaten me into submission with al dente fettuccine. You have wrung from me the horrible admission that I was one of the younger guys in my class. What evil and nefarious purpose would have caused me to build this vast conspiracy of subterfuge to make myself look completely ordinary?

Ahhh, I must have forgotten. Humility is (among Birthers) is a sure sign of evil intent.

My class graduated some 953 people (depending on whether you count the guys that graduated a few months later for academic reasons). Exactly 243 of us were younger than 22, so while younger than most I was still hardly exceptional. And if the average age actually was closer to 22 than 21... that is hardly a great distinction given the jobs of great responsibility all these men went on to immediately perform.

You win you win. The average age of my graduating class was closer to 18 than to 17.

Therefore, Obama is not a natural born citizen. [end sarcasm]
