 Bush's Harvard professor remembers a lazy liar

A business school professor who taught Bush at Harvard University in the early 1970s says the future president told him that family friends had pulled strings to get him into the Texas Air National Guard.

Yoshi Tsurumi told CNN that the coward confided in him during an after-class hallway conversation during the 1973-74 school year.
He admitted to me that to avoid the Vietnam draft, he had his dad -- he said 'Dad's friends' -- skip him through the long waiting list to get him into the Texas National Guard. He thought that was a smart thing to do. What I couldn't stand -- and I told him -- he was all for the US to continue with the Vietnam War. That means he was all for other people, Americans, to keep on fighting and dying.

Tsurumi got to know Bush when the future president took his 'Economics EAM' (Environmental Analysis for Management), a required two-semester class from the fall of 1973 to the spring of 1974, Bush's first year at Harvard's business school.

Tsurumi has previously spoken of Bush as a student:

In thirty years you always remember the two kinds of students. One is really good. The other is a George Bush kind. Terrible. Intellectually very shallow. But more importantly immature, but lacking the sense of responsibility, compassion, always indulging in denials when he is called on in his lies. And lies came very easily to him.

Ouch.

Sounds like someone with an axe to grind.
