Skip to comments.Was Obama "deemed to have passed"?

Most of us first heard the phrase "deemed to have passed" during the Obamacare thuggery by Congress. Called the Slaughter Strategy, after Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), who chaired the House Rules Committee, House members voted on a bill of amendments to the Senate bill, and the Senate bill was then deemed to have passed when this companion bill was approved. This was supposed to inoculate House members, who could say they never actually voted for the Senate bill.
As we watch the Rancid Media send four dozen reporters to find someone who might possibly think he may have remembered someone telling him about Mitt Romney maybe putting ants down someone's pants in 6th grade (the same "reporters" who spent four weeks and one million dollars to determine Sara Palin's bra size), we again have to wonder about President Obama's immaculate graduations. Obama's school records have been locked-up tighter than nuclear launch codes. His surrender of his law license has elicited yawns from the fawning losers among the Rancid Media (just imagine had this been the case for Romney). All this leads to an unavoidable question: was Obama "deemed to have graduated" from college and law school? Did he get his diplomas not based upon his actual school work, but because liberal faculties "deemed" him to have complete courses of study he did not actually complete? Enquiring minds want to know. For it would certainly help to explain a lot.

I would rather die than be made well by Obama’s DEVILCARE. I mean this. I will not buy it or pay for it. I will go to prison if needed to resist.
This actually came up for me.
I can’t get health insurance because of a pre-existing condition. A customer of mine suggested I get on Obamacare. I told her I would rather DIE.
Better to follow Rapscallion. Prison will treat you for free, but I do recommend you do something that puts you into one of the ‘country-club’ prisons, not with the hard criminals.
Many institutions of higher learning worked on the honor system, allowing the student to tell them when he/she had aquired the credits needed to graduate. Once they got diploma in hand, the institution was reluctant to admit they didn’t check.
This became fairly common back in the late 70’s, and early 80’s. Somewhere about 86-87 most institutions realized this, and adopted a trust but verify approach. Employers know this and are more scrutinous of folks that graduated in the 70’s to mid 80’s.
“do something that puts you into one of the country-club prisons”
so you mean get rich/famous/politics, then commit any crime you like, with a bunch of clear evidence
It was the name Zer0 used that brought fear to his professors. That name was Abaddon. No professor would dare give an “E” grade to an Abaddon in their class. /sarc.
My understanding is that there isn't really any such thing as "get[ting] on Obamacare," in that there's really no new government healtcare program (like Medicare/Medicaid, etc.) Under Obamacare, private insurance companies are forced to provide coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. So, unless Obamacare is struck down or repealed by 2014, any health insurance that you get (as someone with a pre-existing condition) will, in a way, be "Obamacare."
Sooner or later, yet neither too soon nor soon enough.
“deemed to have passed” = death of America.

But...no actual implementation until after many years of PAYING for it! LOL! After, of course, passing it so we can fi8nd out what’s in it.
Running a Ponzi scheme ought to work nicely.
No one in authority has the balls to rock the boat.
My college, after cursory examination by whatever bureaucrats scan your transcript a semester or so before you graduate, relied on selected professors from major and minor courses of study to sign off on my having fulfilled the requirements. The meetings were prefunctory, and they were easily willing to shuffle, slide, and move things around til they fit.
Even so, I’m pretty sure I never met one of the criteria, that being something about needing 41, or whatever, credits at or above the junior level (400, I think it was quantified as). Nobody stopped me from getting a diploma, so who cares?
