We had previously written that with his rate my professor.com ratings wiped clean, no negative evaluations of President Obamas tenure as a lecturer at the University of Chicago exist. Now, the intrepid staff at The Washington Examiner has actually dug up negative trendlines of his years there.
Within a few years, he had become a rock-star professor with hordes of devoted students, Time magazine claimed in 2008.
Most scores on his teaching evaluations were positive to superlative, the New York Times claimed in 2008. Some students started referring to themselves as his groupies.
When Barack Obama arrived at the Law School in 1991, faculty and students alike sensed that he had a bright future ahead of him, the University of Chicago Law Schools alumni site, The Record, rhapsodized online in the spring of 2009. As the first African American president of the Harvard Law Review, he was clearly an accomplished scholar with a fine mind and his choice of careers.
And once he began teaching, his strong oratorical skills and his ability to communicate complex ideas made his political ambitions appear credible. Craig Cunningham, 93, one of the Presidents first students and a supporter of his teachers political ambitions, felt that Obama was brilliant, talented, and had the potential to be a great leader.
That may have been true during his first two years, when he ranked first among the law schools 40 instructors, with students giving him a rating of 9.7 out of a possible 10, Richard Pollock reported in The Washington Examiner. But law student evaluations made available to The Washington Examiner by the university showed that his popularity then fell steadily.

Now, how did that nitwit make that determination? There is no record of academic or scholarly achievement from Barack Obama, save one mediocre piece penned at Harvard. Obama is, to my knowledge, the only “President” of the Harvard Law Review who did not go ont to clerk for either a Justice of the SCOTUS or a Federal Judge. He is a singulalry unaccomplished individual given the “education” he received. But, that’s to be expected when one is the clear product of Affirmative Action preferences throughout one’s life. The same holds for his “wife”. Try reading her Senior Thesis from Princeton. To paraphrase the late Christopher Hitchens, it is written in a language that is supposed to be English.
Hopefully, the voters will tire of him the same way the students did.
He lost interest and got lazy when the routine of teaching set in, perhaps? Started mailing it in?
one mediocre race-baiting piece in the student newspaper at Harvard. Not scholarship.
