#2 Being the first black president is not enough? Trying for another first---the first jailbird president?

#3 He's got a fundamental lack of understanding about the U.S. government...

I think you got that sentence backwards. Despite Obummer's alternate shredding of the Constitution and hiding behind it as serves his Marxist goals, our submissive Congress seems entirely unwilling to act whenever he dommes them.

#4 Is this what they call black power. The only thing missing is the raised fist symbol. Years of education programing. Just saying what cannot be said. The old Kennedy joke "it's my football so we play by my rules".

#5 but but he's a Constitutional Scholar™! Despite having written nothing to justify that accolade. He's a tool, and needs to be smacked with checks and balances. Start the oversight hearings!

#6 He really does think he is some sort of God-King doesn't he?

#7 "He's got a fundamental lack of understanding about the U.S. government.."

That is a knock against Harvard, from which I would hire no one. That school (and Cambridge) are highly over-rated and obviously useless in their utility.

Have the GOP prepare articles of Impeachment right now. I cannot stand this little man anymore and someone somewhere needs to call his sorry ass onto the carpet and challenge his nefarious actions.

#8 Someone commented that America has learned two things because of the Obama presidency.

1) We are not a racist country.

2) Let us never again inflict a black liberal president on ourselves.

Unfortunately, the citizenry are a little slow on the uptake, not having learned their lesson from Carter and Clinton. Maybe now they will finally wise up that the problem is not skin color, but that liberalism is a destructive waste and a profound failure.

#12 Every law student is required to spend their first year on the basics: contracts, property, torts, criminal law, civil procedure, Constitutional law, and legal research and writing.

Much of one's view of the US government depends on your Constitutional law professor. I knew mine was a commie douchebag the day he asked me how I felt about a decision we'd had to read. Not "what do you think": "how do you feel."

Years 2 and 3, course selection is up to the student, which generally winds up as one of two tracks:

(A) "I plan to work for a living" (boring but necessary topics like commercial paper, corporate law, criminal procedure, federal taxation, etc.) or

(B) "I plan to agitate, raise consciousness, regulate, and/or shake down others for a living" (exciting revolutionary shit like critical race theory, environmental law, and labor law, which are all just Marxism 101 with a legal veneer).

(A) track students work like dogs, then go out and drink and f*ck like it's their last chance ever.

(B) track students join clubs: Black Law Student Association, Public Interest Law Foundation, Environmental Justice Clinic, etc.

I wouldn't have chosen BHO as a classmate, as a professor, or hired him to represent me - let alone elevate such a loser to President of the United States. I still cannot grasp how we got here.

#13 I still cannot grasp how we got here.

Two words RandomJD: Affirmitive Action

Barack Obama was elected solely because he is considered 'black'.

Let me repeat this - this is not a racist statement just a statement of fact: Barak Obama was elected because he was black.

He was woefully unqualified for the job. Had ZERO experience - and still have ZERO experience after 3 years - he is incapable of learning from his mistakes. He had a very dishonorable record - and worse associates.

But the media, tingling legs and everything, covered for him. They said nothing of his record, zip about his associates and history or his record. Never daring to question why his records are sealed. Why? Because of the color of his skin. They called anyone and everyone who questioned his 'qualifications' a racist and was willing to dig deep and even invent things about his opponents for the same reason.

And people voted for him because of the color of his skin - to elect the first 'African-American' President.

Barak Obama is the first Affirmative Action President. Personally I believe he has been 'Affirmitive Action' in every role he has ever had - but we may never know because his records are sealed and the media refuses to ask why.

#14 "And people voted for him because of the color of his skin - to elect the first 'African-American' President."

In other words, CF, the idiots who voted for that *ss are racists - they set a much lower standard for Bambi than they would have for any white person.

Let me repeat that: RACISTS.

#15 CrazyFool and Barbara, I completely agree. It's just depressing that it's so easy to sell snake oil.

Had ZERO experience - and still have ZERO experience after 3 years

Heh. So just like law school, then. No doubt we can look forward to another vapid post-coital memoir about how it was good for him, so it must have been good for us too.
