So damn true.
Has he proved that he even went to college... I thought so...
Well, Obama did teach at the University of Chicago. I don't know if you are familiar with that particular institution, but they tend to only hire people who, you know, know something about their subject. And also he is a lawyer, they also tend to need more than kindergarten. Also, it seems he went to Harvard Law School after college (NYT article from 1990). Oh and Columbia claims that he went there too, but besides that we really have no reason to suspect that he went to college.
Come on, Rick, you have to realize that this claim that he didn't go to college is the position of altered reality that comes from political extremism Similarly, we could ask if Obama has ever proved that he needs oxygen to live? Or if George W Bush was once 13 years old? I mean, we've all seen proof that he was 12 and 14, but until we see proof of 13, we should all assume that he skipped it.
If you believe that the president of the United States never went to college, how can anyone be expected to respect your beliefs on economic theory or the global climate?
Good point. Admitting they were wrong would be impossible for the MSM talking heads. There are too many of them. To have collectively screwed up so badly....never! Or never admit it. It must be the rest of us screwed up.
So, what was the subject of this thread? Apparently the same as all the other obsessive threads started and nurtured by the people who have nothing of substance to say but can't stop picking the scab on their mind left from losing two elections to "he who drives them to distraction". More than half the threads on this board are based on either non-events or opinions from disreputable and thoroughly partisan sources whose vapidity quickly dissolves into the usual and repeated daily expressions of angst and displeasure expressed by the same posters, no matter the supposed subject. I must admit that your desperation and colicky rantings are enjoyable up to a point, but after awhile one longs for sane discussion of intelligible facts. That's pretty rare on this board and really raises the question of how much fun there is in watching damaged insects run in circles on the patio floor while occasionally shooting fish in the barrel.
Have no doubt O went to college. My questions are:
1). How did a self-confessed pot/coke head with little interest in high school academics get into prestigious schools?
2). What were his grades? Should he have been allowed to stay sans affirmation action?
3). Did he attend any schools as a foreign exchange student?
Who gives a f..k? He graduated Magna Cum Laude form Harvard Law and was president of the Law Review, a position he earned partly due to the respect of conservative fellow law students.
have we really seen any proof that he graduated from Hahvud MCL
None that TH righties would accept. They've stuck with birtherism longer than Wayne Newton still bought Vitalis.
row- there may still be a few birthers out therer but not very many-I have said many many times that we should no EVERYTHING possible about who we elect to the Presidency-tjhis includes tax records, medical records and educational records- prezBO has refused to do so
he is your guy so you will support that not happening
however, you would not be so supportive if our prez had an R behind his name
I want both parties to be totally open
Row, wasn't this thread was about transparency? I will agree, the Obama administration is the most transparent in my lifetime. They are screwing the taxpayers, screwing future taxpayers, screwing the children and grandchildren of future taxpayers, screwing our allies, screwing our healthcare system, screwing freedom, redistributing funds and allocating to the mooches and slackers and blaming America for the ills of all. And are doing it out in the open where the world can see. We have become a laughing stock again...just like under the last liberal POTUS, Jimmy Carter. The Misery Index is no more...it has been replaced by an economy stuck in the mud.
I think the OA is so transparent you cannot see anything....
I am sure race plays into it at some level but the truth is the MSM has always been forced in to covering bad stories about Dems, mostly when scooped by The Enquirer. Recent examples include Bill Clinton sex scandals being buried as was John Edwards until irrefutable proof forced the MSM's hand. Meanwhile, any accusation of misconduct against Pubs, no matter how flimsy, saw a total saturation of coverage including lead stories on CNN and front page headlines in the NYT. In the end, it is way more a Dem thing than a race thing IMO..
Where are his transcripts? Con-men have been doing this sort of stuff for years and getting away with it. I'll not give Obama a pass on this issue... an issue that is easy as hell to resolve.
Show me Obama's grades and transcripts. It's simple and every single POTUS except for the royal pain has shown us theirs. Is he special? Is he beyond reproach? Why is it too much to ask for his transcripts?
Give me one good reason why Obama shouldn't show us his college transcripts? One good reason... just one.
You already know the only reason you'll get: "He doesn't have to. So there."
1) Con-men have been getting away with this? So you are saying that you don't trust Harvard Law School to check if someone has an undergrad transcript, but you will trust, let's say, Rush Limbaugh?
2) No other president has ever released their transcripts. Ever. Why do you allow yourself to be manipulated by your party? Show me Reagan's college transcript. Or Nixon's. You won't because they were never released. Try to think for yourself here.
3) One good reason not to release them? Because he doesn't want to. Besides, only a few right wing nuts have even asked. Why wouldn't Romney release his taxes? Why didn't George W Bush release the list of women he slept with? It's arbitrary.
Again, rick, you can't be trusted to analyze the complex issues if you believe simple fallacies, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, like Obama is the first candidate not to release his transcripts. You are allowing yourself to be conned by your party, and it is not fun to watch. You are better than this. Obama has done a lot of real things to criticize, but this made up goose chase is pure silliness. Do us both a favor, pretend like we are talking about Romney's transcripts. Think how you would defend Romney. Do the research on Abe Lincoln's transcripts. You can find the truth here.
rade is correct- no Prez's have ever released their college transcripts
as I have stated many many times- we the people should be able to know everything that makes a person QUALIFIED to run for Prez-the more info we have the better- it should not matter if the is a D or an R after their names- if you are going to lead our Country then you should be willing to let us know who you are in all respects
I can get with this. If we all feel like taxes, transcripts, medical docs, etc. are essential to the process and paramount to the candidate's privacy, then we should simply mandate them for all candidates.
