I'm not sure what is more worrisome - our President having no better than 7th grade math skills or the fact that he is comfortable admitting to it (and considers it a strong campaign message - relating to the people).

If we are going to continue to elect lawyers to public office, perhaps law schools need to start requiring a strong math and economics component.
