Jesus Christ, dude. WTF was he supposed to say?
"As governor of Massachusetts I instituted a program where HS graduates in the top quarter of their class received free tuition at any Massachusetts public university. Now, bear in mind that this only covers tuition, not side fees like student processing, books, library fee, or anything like that. Really, it's kind of worthless when you think about it. But hey, it's a nice gesture and helps out a lot of families struggling to send kids to college... if they can afford the fees, that is."
