Obama: NOT a Lawyer... NOT a Professor... (and Surely No Genius, Either!)
Reaganite Republican ^ | April 5, 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 04/06/2012 4:46:26 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

As the hollow Obama myth continues to unravel -and any asking relevant questions are still dismissed as 'fringe' kooks by the White House/MSM- just forget for a minute the birth certificate, gangster pals, and unexplained disappearances of those who happen to get-in-the-way...

Here's a refresher on yet another Obama background cover-up episode, the sort that makes it impossible to take his word on anything: are you aware that the former editor of the Harvard Law Revue in reality lost his license to practice law because he lied on the application...?

If that's not bad enough, 'lawyer' Michelle Obama's last place of employment -a fake, mafia/union-style 'no work' position as 'legal counsel' for the University of Chicago hospitals at an inflated salary (allegedly a payback for Barack's obtaining them a government grant)- would also require a legal license... or so you'd think: seems Moo-chelle was taking- in $300K+/year while not qualified to practice law either. Interestingly, the job no longer even exists.

Why don't the Obamas -touted as brilliant minds/teachers- have their law licenses? Seems they where forced to cough them up, in Barack's case to avoid charges for false statements i.e. he had 'no prior aliases', among other things.

For those not familiar with the intricacies of the Bar Association, a "Voluntary Surrender" of one's license is not something where you just forget to renew it. No, a "Voluntary Surrender" is something you do when you've been accused of something, and you 'voluntarily surrender' your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

Michelle Obama also 'voluntarily surrendered' her law license in 1993. The search engine linked above has blocked all info on 'disciplinary action', so we may never know the truth as to why.

And Barack Obama was nothing like the legal scholar he's purported to have been: former students have recently come out as 'shocked' at their former teacher's ignorance of the US Constitution, but that just goes to show you that a '
senior lecturer' is one thing, a fully ranked law professor is entirely another: and Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law Professor at the University of Chicago- period. 

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

According to the the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law, Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn't even considered. But soon afterward, 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. They said 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 barely an adjunct. 

The other (real) 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.'

Another Chicago Law professor said that Obama 'had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building'. The same prof expressed serious doubt as to whether BHO was ever 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 a standard prerequisite for the position).

Perhaps this all helps to explain then the way that the former 'Constitutional Senior Lecturer' cited the U.S. Constitution during his most recent State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence ....
not the Constitution . 

Obama said: "We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal." 

Uh, btw Mr. President... those promises are not a 'notion'... the Founding Fathers said they are 'unalienable rights- BIG difference. And the document you quoted form was actually 
The Declaration of Independence

'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.'

And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court just moments later? 

Did this fraud ever even graduate from Harvard...?

There is a BIG difference between voluntarily going “Inactive” and “surrendering” your law license.

I love what you posted, but he was the president of the law review, not the editor.

The word “surrendered” does not appear on the ARDC page for either Obama. Barack’s page says “voluntarily retired,” Michelle’s says “voluntarily inactive”

I would say his election to President was also affirmative action. Blacks voted for him because he is, sort of, black. Liberals voted for him because he is a black Marxist. The rest who voted for him were too stupid to see through his “hopey, changy” BS.

IIRC, she had gotten into some problems over real estate and questionable money transactions. No, I don’t have the link, if it still exists. No, I don’t remember the names, dates or details as that was back in ‘08 and two or three crashed computers ago. At the time, the Illinois Bar site had them listed but not active (not active wasn’t the term) so both had voluntarily or ordered by the court (that would be Moochelle’s) before he was elected.

I personally have asked hundreds of high priced and well known attorneys as to how often a supposed Harvard or Yale Law School Graduate VOLUNTARILY gives up their license to practice law. The answer is always the same “It has Never happened before”.

My wife is no Harvard lawyer but she is a lawyer and she left the legal profession to take up teaching. There are continuing education requriements and annual fees and stuff she would have to maintain in order to retain her status as a mamber of the bar in active standing. So she changed her status to some sort of "inactive" one. She cannot practice law but all she needs to do to reactivate herself is pay a fee.

I'm not sure if this is in any way similar to what Obama did, the linked reference citation to his legal status with the Illinois bar doesn't say, other than he's not authorized to practice law. I'm not sure that means he can never practice law or that he was ever under any sort of disbarment consideration. This might be all smoke, no fire.

You know, I think if the court looks like it is going to go the way of striking it down, if I were Elena Kagan I might seriously consider voting with the majority to overturn it.

She sits in a cloud now, as Obama's lawyer she prepared the defense of this thing and then refused to recuse herself. It looks bad, makes her look like a partisan hack. She's even been accused by whisperers of feeding Obama inside info from the close door deliberaitons. In other words, she's viewed as his puppet.

If her vote was necessary, I'm sure she could live with that. But if her vote is not relevant, why not put that all aside by going against Obama? Not only would she remove the appearance of partiality, she would actually appear to be very independent, not a predictable hack at all.

That's not true. My wife is a lawyer. She is currently staying home with our children, and not actively practicing law, and her page says "voluntarily inactive," just like Michelle Obama's. There are advantages to becoming inactive if your'e not actively practicing law (lower bar fees, no CLEs, etc). I know other attorneys who have changed careers and have permanently stopped practicing law, and their bar status page says "voluntarily retired," just like BO's. No disciplinary record (or threatened disciplinary record) for any of them.


To clear up the controversy, wouldn't it be a simple matter to have a reporter ask Obama or his press secretary why Obama voluntarily gave up his law license?

If Obama's answer is as innocent as you claim above, then Obama should be more than happy to answer a reporter's question about his law license.

All I know is this: Obama has had plenty of time and opportunities to put the controversy to rest over these past almost 4 years, but he has been conspicuously silent when it comes to explaining why the President of the United States voluntarily gave up his law license in Illinois.

Why is President Obama so silent on the law license question, if the answer is an innocent and routine one?

"[H]undreds of high priced and well known attorneys" are (a) wrong or (b) lying. There are plenty of lawyers who leave the practice of law, and maintaining an active law license can be expensive and time-consuming - between paying for bar fees, CLEs, required malpractice insurance, etc, it can be thousands of dollars a year. If your job doesn't require an active law license, then maintaining one is just throwing money down the drain.

My wife and I are both attorneys (I'm active, she's not), and we both know many former colleagues who have left the profession and voluntarily given up their licenses or become inactve (my wife included). Yes, even Harvard and Yale lawyers.

We had a fellow working as a contractor for us ages ago who had both a law degree and a masters in some sort of engineering field ~ he preferred engineering.

The son of a very good friend of Mrs Gandalf got a BS in chemical engineering from Notre Dame. He moved to DC and took a job at the patent office. After about a year they made him an offer he couldn't refuse, they offered a full scholarship to Georgetown University Law Center towards a J.D. with a concentration in Patent Law. Yes he is a very bright young man!

My favorite question of libs: If Obama is what he says he is, why has he spent all that money sequestering all of his records, from high school through law school? Not one lib can give an answer.

Keep asking that one. Maybe some of them will spit out the Kool-Aid and put on their thinking caps instead.
