President Barack Obama told an audience of high school students in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday that he was not always the very best student and that ethics would not have made it on the list of his favorite subjects.
I was not always the very best student that I could be when I was in high school, and certainly not when I was in middle school, Obama said, speaking at Benjamin Banneker Academic High School.
I did not love every class I took. I wasnt always paying attention the way I should have, Obama said. I remember when I was in 8th grade I had to take a class called ethics. Now, ethics is about right and wrong, but if youd ask me what my favorite subject was back in 8th grade, it was basketball. I dont think ethics would have made it on the list.
Obama went on to tell the high school students that even though that 8th grade ethics class was not one of his favorites it did have a significant impact on his lifeand now inspires the way he acts as president.

ALL democrats fail "ethics", as their ethics are "if it feels good, and you don't think you will be caught, DO IT!".
I believe liberals changed the name of such a class to “values clarification”. It allows the American people to get away with doing wrong if no one is looking.
This akin to saying Michael Moore is a disgusting fat body.
Frankly, I wonder if Ubama can even pronounce the word, “ethics”.
I can’t find ANYONE who had an ethics class in 8th grade.
Obama learned in Chicago where ethics meant you didn’t get caught.
Could it have been "ethnics"?
Since all of his records were conveniently sealed, we’ll never know if he ever took an ethics class in the eighth grade. As if they ever had ethics classes in eighth grade. He lies for no reason other than to puff himself up, that’s a definition of something bad.
Only a total idiot would say that. Oh wait, its Obama.
“I cant find ANYONE who had an ethics class in 8th grade.”
Catholic school students in the 1950’s did.
Donald Young would agree. He was helping you with your gay problem during your campaign but talked a little too much. That was his last week on earth. And your owned media never questioned. Guess they don’t care about ethics much either.
Such an inspiration to the young.......
SUCH an inspiration!
Yes, but Obama had a VERY special education mere mortals like you cannot possibly know anything about.
It was so special none of us can EVER know anything about it.
Maybe they taught Muslim Ethics 101 at that madrassa in Indonesia.
My bro went to Public School....no ethics class.
Life was the Golden Rule back then...and still is.
And I’m finding it increasingly revealing how often insecure Lefties
and especially Obama, find themselves seeking out the youngest audiences, children, and adolescents, returning again and again to them, as if securing a future fantasy vote, like a ballplayer who was on his way to home plate, then panics when he realizes he may not have touched first base, and has to run back to it.
