Trump: How did Obama get into the Ivy League?
CBS News / The Associated Press ^ | April 25, 2011 | Lucy Madison

Posted on 04/25/2011 4:09:11 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Donald Trump on Monday suggested he had broadened the scope of his investigation regarding President Obama's background, arguing that - in addition to making inquiries into Mr. Obama's citizenship - he was "looking into" the president's college career.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Trump alleged that Mr. Obama had been "a terrible student," and wondered how he could have been accepted to prestigious schools like Columbia and Harvard Universities.

"I heard he was a terrible student, terrible," Trump told the AP. "How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard? I'm thinking about it, I'm certainly looking into it. Let him show his records."

This is the big question, IMO. I think Obama misrepresented himself as a foreign student, or committed some sort of fraud of that kind.

Marxists are typically unethical. I'm sure there's a lotta dirt here somewhere.

The real ? is what Obama has. Trump is just asking.

If Obama ever wrote anything, I’d love to read it. Then again I think his known statements are bad enough if anyone would read them.

“How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?”

What a joke. Harvard grads are (especially undergrads) sometimes the most poorly educated, never seen anything but a TA, dumbest bastards on the earth. Plus, with the social and political climate through the seventies and eighties (they missed the sixties), it was a real joke. If you have a political scholar on your hands, especially, you may be talking to one dumb sunuvbeech. My guess is JugEars took JUST enough law to squeak through and it was mostly social justice courses. When did he pass the bar?

Trump is hitting obama with massive body blows. Trump would not say something this definitive without having legal counsel pass muster on it... he has hard evidence as to his grades or he would never have stated it in such plain terms. He doesn't accuse obama of not being a NBC but he states he has questions about that possibility. He calls obama out on his bad grades and being a horrible student and if those two things are true... and they probably are... how did that pos get into an TWO ivy league schools? We DEMAND an answer!

I think that is what Percy Sutton said.

In general, Columbia and Harvard (as well as other highly selective schools) will do almost anything to improve their AA numbers. That is all the more true when someone comes along with the right sponsors and political pedigree.

Once he was in HLS, Obamalini was astute enough to use his personality to allow the anguished leftists on the faculty feel good about themselves. Larry Tribe would be a good example.

I am glad Trump is looking into the College years.
How was Soetor0 a foreign student? what where his grades?
Who got him into Columbia?
Where are his professors, ex girlfriends, and friends?
How did he get into Harvard law? that is difficult. What did he do and write at Harvard?

>>My guess is JugEars took JUST enough law to squeak through and it was mostly social justice courses.<<

The very definition of an Affirmative Action admission.

Dumber than dirt but carried along by his marginal ability to speak and his pleasing light-but-black skin color.

No one has ever had their skids greased so much — not even JFK.

Didn’t read the whole article, but here is my prediction:

After the initial question, the reporter will start to smear Trump as stupid, idiotic, etc.

This is because the standard rule is, if a Democrat is questioned by a whistleblower, the MSM MUST ATTACK the whistleblower/questioner. I’ve never seen differently. People who legitimately bring abusers to notice are astounded to find the press will turn on them, viciously, even for a person accused of heinous crimes. The original accusation will be totally ignored.

If it is a Republican/Conservative who is being exposed, no scrutiny whatsover will go into the person who brings it to mind. They can be the lowest of the low. It makes no difference, suddenly every bit of gossip will be frontpage news and the whistleblower will be a great “hero”.

There are no exceptions.

Examples: Rathergate
Linda Tripp
Duke lacrosse
Clinton and the blue dress
The DNC emails leaked

I could go on and on. I’m sure other Freepers can remember other cases of this.

Isn't it interesting that the question of why Obama with his poor grades got into Harvard Law and became the President of the Law Review ties into the other question of why Obama didn't put out an Easter message but has not missed ANY Muslim holidays??????

Hmmmm.......

Could it be that the Saudis and Palis got him into Hahvahd, and still basically "own" our President???

Hmmmmmm.......

I think a little differently about this. Yes we think these things, but Trump is seriously off- track. Personal attacks are made when someone is working from a position of weakness. Instead of this, which will galvanize his voting base, focus on the flip- flopping, the sheer absence of leadership in every aspect of the Office, the total disregard for The Constitution. Remember you are talking about the cult of personality here.. it does not respond logically.... it only responds when it is personal.. to them, not to him. He was perfectly happy to be a one term Prez, to make room for Hillary.

Guess that means you'd rather have a community college educated Thorasic Surgeon operate on you than one from Harvard Med.........

Your broad brush incrimination of Harvard grads does an extreme disservice to those who indeed struggled to gain acceptance and ultimately graduate from that university........

I agree. Chances are he applied to Occidental as a foreign student from Indonesia to access foreign student scholarship funds. He probably had dual citizenship having been adopted by an Indonesian. He, of course, wants to conceal the fact that he gamed the system to access the scholarship funds. And that is why he will not release student records.

Trump! Keep hitting Obama until something cracks—all it will take is one break in the shell of secrecy to bring down “The One”. One bit that will pull away the mask. The Donald is doing the Lords work this day! But, beware Donald, the powers that put Obama in office are dark and evil—they will stop at nothing, they may even strike you down! Now they are giving you the Palin treatment but it will get worst before it gets better.

Ohhh, be very careful what you wish for. It's not for the feint of heart.

------------------

Pop

Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken
In, sprinkled with ashes,
Pop switches channels, takes another
Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks
What to do with me, a green young man
Who fails to consider the
Flim and flam of the world, since
Things have been easy for me;
I stare hard at his face, a stare
That deflects off his brow;
I'm sure he's unaware of his
Dark, watery eyes, that
Glance in different directions,
And his slow, unwelcome twitches,
Fail to pass.
I listen, nod,
Listen, open, till I cling to his pale,
Beige T-shirt, yelling,
Yelling in his ears, that hang
With heavy lobes, but he's still telling
His joke, so I ask why
He's so unhappy, to which he replies . . .
But I don't care anymore, cause
He took too damn long, and from
Under my seat, I pull out the
Mirror I've been saving; I'm laughing,
Laughing loud, the blood rushing from his face
To mine, as he grows small,
A spot in my brain, something
That may be squeezed out, like a
Watermelon seed between
Two fingers.
Pop takes another shot, neat,
Points out the same amber
Stain on his shorts that I've got on mine and
Makes me smell his smell, coming
From me; he switches channels, recites an old poem
He wrote before his mother died,
Stands, shouts, and asks
For a hug, as I shink, my
Arms barely reaching around
His thick, oily neck, and his broad back; 'cause
I see my face, framed within
Pop's black-framed glasses
And know he's laughing too.

-- Barack Obama

Remember you are talking about the cult of personality here.

Not when it comes to the so-called independent or moderate voter -- the voter who might have voted Republican in 2008 but decided to give Obama a try without really knowing anything about the man. I think it matters very much to that voter who Obama really is and what he is covering up.

He might have applied as an Indonesian JUST TO GET IN! It doesn't mean he got scholarship funds. It might be easier to get into some schools as a foreigner. He may even have RECEIVED COLLEGE FUNDS FROM INDONESIA to get in!!!!

They thought that with the media firmly behind him, so far up they could see the back of Obama's throat, they could run an ineligible guy who was barely American and full on commie and even get him into the White House.

They were right.

These questions about Barry’s college career have been hanging out there for the past few years, yet there’s been a media blackout on the issue. Finally the questions are getting a minimal amount of attention.

Even more important is the media blackout on Barry’s slim resume. His only previous job experience seems to have been working on a foundation Board with his close friend/mentor, Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers.
