Subtitle: LIAR GATE and How it Relates to Lying Dave Reichert
Many have addressed the Neocon lying smear campaign belittling the Economics degree Darcy Burner earned from Harvard University, including Goldy at Horsesass.org, the Huffington Post, and even Harvard University Professor Harry Lewis.
Given that most have discussed details about a “concentration” in Economics at Harvard and Darcy Burner herself commented that she took five courses offered by the Economics Department, don’t for one second assume that Darcy Burner somehow earned some kind of “lesser” degree in Economics from Harvard. The only Economics degree offered to undergraduates at Harvard University is a “concentration”; Harvard University undergraduate students in Economics are referred to as “Concentrators”.
Yes: Darcy earned the Harvard Economics degree. Anyone and everyone who earns an undergraduate degree in Economics at Harvard University does it the same way Darcy did.
Go to http://www.economics.harvard.edu/, click on Undergraduate near the top of the page, and then select Requirements. Download either the PDF for Concise summary of Requirements or Econ Undergraduate Handbook and read.
This is NOT a matter of symantics.
Lying Neocon liars like Dave “Green River—NOT” Reichert know a lot about lying, fibbing, half-truths, sins of omission, and bald-faced lying. It’s truth and fact that these Neocon conmen can’t recognize. And in the interest of his Neocon cronies like McCain, Palin, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the whole miserable rest of them, Reichert is launching the biggest lying, cheating, influence-peddling, Election Commission rule-braking, illegal loan borrowing, smear campaign that he can in the last two weeks leading up to Election Day.
There is only one undergraduate degree in Economics at Harvard University; it can be the regular concentration or it can be the “honors” concentration, which requires an additional “honors” course.
Darcy Burner earned this degree—THE degree—in Economics from Harvard University.
