nothing to see here . . . move along, move along.
Perhaps there was a different name he used before 1996 for his Illinois driver’s license...
Aggghhhhhhh MY EYES... all that boldface! Don’t SHOUT! :)
In addition to showing Obamas Illinois drivers license number, O150-0686-1221-0, it does show a clean record.
But whats with the Cont. Lic. Date of 8-19-96? The date seems to be when he first applied for his Illinois Drivers License, which he held consistently through its expiration date of 8-4-08.
Obama first moved to Chicago in 1985 and may have used some mass transit occasionally as a Community Organizer. Obama began attending Harvard Law School in fall 1988. In 1989, he worked briefly at the Sidley Austin Law Firm in Chicago, as a summer associate from Harvard, where he met Michelle. They had a “long distance relationship” until he graduated from Harvard in May 1991. Obama returned to be the Illinois head of “Project Vote” (affiliated with “ACORN”) while Michelle is hired as a Chicago mayoral assistant. On Dec. 17, 1991, Obama is admitted to the Illinois Bar. Obama and Michelle married Oct. 3, 1992.
BHO definitely owned and drove a car while wooing Michelle in Chicago between summer 1989 and October 1992. THIS is from the 60 Minutes interview last year, while they were reminiscing of their early years together:
Kroft: It is one bedroom? Studio?
Mr. Obama: Yeah, it was sort of a one bedroom. It had kind of the vintage, college dorm, pizza
Kroft: Community organizer, right?, feel to it.
Michelle Obama: It reminded me of a little better version of the apartment you were in when we first started dating. That was a dump too.
Mr. Obama: Right near Harold’s Chicken Shack.
Michelle Obama: Yeah.
Mr. Obama: Yeah. That’s when I had the car with the-the hole in it.
Michelle Obama: And you could see the sidewalk, because the rust had gone through.
Mr. Obama: The air-conditioning.
Michelle Obama: So that was my side. I would look and see the ground going past. And I still married him.
One consideration might be that he let his Illinois drivers license lapse while he was at Harvard from Fall 1988 to May 1991. In 2007, to clean his record for his presidential run, Obama paid for 17 parking tickets he received between Oct. 5, 1988 and Jan. 12, 1990. However, it is unknown if he had a Massachusetts drivers license during that time. Its more likely that he kept his Illinois drivers license and drove his rusty car back and forth 1000 miles, nearly 16 hours, between Harvard and Chicago when visiting Michelle (see Obama finally pays local parking ticket).
Regardless, its unlikely he neither owned nor drove a car in Illinois for five years after returning to Chicago in mid-1991 (post-Harvard) until the date on the Illinois drivers license abstract of Aug 19, 1996.
So why the 1996 date, just months before his first run (and win) as an Illinois State Senator with the socialist New Party in November 1996?
Simple really Obama has a history of getting new documents before an election to hide those things he doesn’t want known about him.
Certificate of Live Birth 2007
Marriage certificate 2004 and again in 2007
Drivers license 1996
Personally I’m surprised it didn’t say 2007.
You ask a lot of questions.
You have been frequenting some websites which concern your local law enforcement authorities.
Would you mind stopping by the local police station a little later, we would like to have a little chat with you.
Bring a toothbrush.
Obama Defends Driver’s Licenses for Illegals
Yes. This is the link http://www.sos.state.il.us/departments/drivers/drivers_license/acceptable_id.html
Thank you . . .
Aybody do a search in Illinois Driver Base for Barry Soetoro??? and also New York State due to at least 4 years at Columbia??
MY GUESS — he may have had a DIFFERENT name on his “original” Illinois Driver’s Record BEFORE he applied for and had THIS license issued to him.
IF he had an older, original Illinois driver’s license from the mid-80’s (post-Columbia Univ.) with a DIFFERENT name on it, he could have made it “go away” by applying for a NEW license with his CURRENT name on it.
I could see him doing this to “legitimize” himself before running for his first public office.
wasn’t there also some question about him never registering for possible military service until he was in his 30’s or 40’s? I was always under the impression you could never be a govt. employee if you didn’t send im that info when you were eighteen?
BINGO! We have a winner.
Barry Soertoro perhaps.
What’s with the “issue” date?
He started at some small college in California (Occidental, maybe?)...if he went to Columbia for 4 years, he didn’t have to...
How come it’s only good for 2 years and six months?
OT: FYI, in case you missed it:
