Chicago Law Prof on Obama: “The Professors Hated Him because he was Lazy, Unqualified
Gateway Pundit ^ | March 31, 2010 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/31/2010 7:45:15 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

The highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law spoke out on Barack Obama saying, “Professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings.” Doug Ross reported this and more:

I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).

The way has been prepared for the world’s most successful communist traitor mole for decades. At least since proud communist Frank Marshal “bird-dogged” him to his handlers back in Hawaii. From then on, the doors in front of him opened as if by magic, opened by minor moles and fellow travelers.

He is LAZY.

He complained that being our President was too much work...and as I understand it, he doesn't even drag his half white/ half black (the only part of his color he acknowledges for some reason) ass into our Oval Office until around NINE THIRTY in the morning! Lazy creep.

In 2007 I heard an interview about the Constitution ‘class’ Obama ran. They talked about sports, mainly basketball, almost all the time.

None of BHO’s formative years were spent in the 48 states. He’s not an American in his heart. He’s a third generation red diaper baby. What else would you expect?

There IS self-interest and self-serving in the relationship between business and politics. Only the most naive would deny it. Is it evil for Obama to point it out in class, just because Alinsky did the same?

As a Catholic publication, First Things ought to hold itself above such unattributed gossip.

There's enough real criticism to make of Obama without this.

So his academic history, as his professional one, is merely “Present”

I hate this clown. Can we get another president yet ?

If he were a clerk in a filing office he would have been fired. If he were flipping burgers, he would be fired. Why is this shmuck still president ?!

This slacker *astard couldn't handle a real job, white collar/blue collar, in the real world for more than a month. I've see his type, 100% pure BS artist and race whiner.

Excellent points that can’t be repeated often enough.

Also, this idea that he can relate to blacks is foolish. His upbringing was not typical of blacks in our country.

His only “creds” come from his marriage to Michelle.

There has been a trickle of discontent from WH staffers about his laziness - in late, out early, time for hoops, no serious security briefing efforts. Meanwhile, Rahm is working around the clock and barely has time to listen to the talk about how Barry whisked Michelle here or there...

We’ve all seen his type and they make life on the job ultra difficult if not impossible.

He is a slacker indeed, and the joke is on those who voted for him. But, Dang! It sure makes it hard on the rest of us!

I personally think he is a national embarrassment.

I have ‘hung’ out with too many ‘REALLY’ brilliant people to be fooled by ‘O’ as to his intellectual capacity.

I would say his IQ is an easy 122 on the stanford-binet.

He misapply’s the meaning of too many words for him to be as bright as they claim. He does have an excellent gift for constructing great sentences which actually say nothing.

This is “priceless”. Too bad these comments weren’t offered before or during the election. Those faculty members had to have been laughing when Barry’s IQ was described as “off the charts”.

He also doesn’t attend church.

I have no problem with someone who freely says thay are not religious not going to church, but I DO have a problem with someone who says they are a committed Christian and yet doesn’t go. Often that is a person too lazy to get up on a Sunday and tie his shoes.

People who say they are Christians but go play in the gym instead, play basketball instead of work, as you say in late, out early, never on time - The man is a serious lazy loser. He also doesn’t seem to have any grasp of issues - just in perpetual campaign mode.

The only real surprise to me was what has apparently happened to the University of Chicago since I was last there
more than 35 years ago. It always had its share of loudmouthed Lefties, but also knew how to deal with them/
I was there during the takeover of the Administration building,in 1970, and saw how Nixon’s Attorney General, Ed Levi,then President of the school, simply let them do it, allowing them to tire of play-acting like they were Castroites in Havana in early January 1959, smoking cigars, feet up on desks, etc. He refused to call the cops and start the crackdown they so dearly desired, and after a few weeks they left. THeir issue was the lamest I have ever seen a Left group get animated over: just look up the name Marlene Dixon, and you’ll see what I mean.

From Defendus.link

It should be noted that Rockefeller started the U of Chicago. Any Rockefeller henchman can teach there, including Ayers and his Wife ... license to teach or not. Bernadene Dohrn (Ayer's Wife - excuse spelling) teaches Law there, though she does not have a Law License!

4. A senior lecturer is one thing.. A fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) "served as a professor" in the law school-but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

6. "He did not hold the title of professor of law," said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.

“I still cannot believe the people voted for this pathetic, empty suit!!”

McCain would also have been a disaster. They both have many things in common to include both being born in a foreign country.

McCain is also dumb. He graduated 4th or 3rd from the bottom of his class; and as far as I know, I don’t remember reading he ever had a real job other than being a crook and crashing taxpayers’ aircrafts.

But he did stay at a Hanoi Inn Express once.

I know things like this happen. I am a retired instructor from a university business school. Perhaps 20 years ago, we had a temporary position open for a bus. law instructor. A black Harvard JD (yes, similar situation to Obama's) applied for both our position and another position within the university administration.

I saw his resume. He had a two-year gap (supposedly a resume red flag) in there which no one said a word about. The admin refused to hire him but ordered the business college to, and also to make the position tenure track, which we did.

He turned out to be a very disorganized instructor (assigning a given chapter and then at the next class, launching into an entirely different chapter without explanation, for example) and also got arrested during the semester and ended up being convicted of insurance fraud and imprisoned. Another bus law prof took on the entire unstaffed class load, doubling his own class load for the remainder of the semester.

The management dept head told me later that they actually checked to see if his Harvard law degree was fraudulent, and they found out it was real! Just one anecdotal example, and not to be generalized from. We also had some very good black instructors in the business college, but I hadn't thought of the event for years, and Obama's law instructor career and the comments on his performance in this article brought it to mind.

Is this "highest tenured faculty member" identified by name anywhere, or is this an anonymous rumor?

I think a lot of us have wondered about that- everyone who knew him and worked with him that wasn’t in love with him said similar things- he just wasn’t up to the job- ANY job.

WHY in the hell they didn’t speak up? The country was under a spell...and cowed into fear they’d be called....
