I read that the governer said she was "pleased with the grade." How can you be please with being just barely above average?

I gave a D because of the overspending on the Capitol remodel, the neglected maintenance of university buildings, the wasted economic development funds, the unfunded liability in the KPERS fund, the shortfall in Medicaid, the miserably low payments for caring for children in foster care homes, the lack of funds to maintain our roads, plus the high property tax, and that's just off the top of my head.
