This is a wild goose chase. No one doubts that he attended Harvard Law School. In order to get in he would have had to have an undergraduate degree. He would have had to take the LSAT. He would have had to have at least passing grades. I don’t know what this post is implying. That he didn’t involve himself much in the school? That he didn’t attend classes? Maybe he didn’t. But he had to have graduated, from somewhere, at least.

It’s about honesty and being someone that can be trusted as CIC. How can you truly trust someone who’s past is so opaque?

Harvard is notorious for “legacy” admissions (e.g. the Kennedys) for whom the standards are different from normal people. Was it not reported that a Saudi prince financed Obama’s education at Harvard? Under those circumstances, there may well have been no “need” to look at grade transcripts or much of anything.

I think you are wrong. By the time I got to my senior level classes in college (economics), I knew everyone, as I had been taking classes with them for over 4 years. If Obama had been in one of my classes, I can assure you that I would remember it, and so would most people. Transcripts, LSAT’s, etc can however be faked.

Why? Colleges can admit whomever they'd like.

The larger fact is that, to this point, every president has been a man of some note, throughout his entire life. Each has had a long history of visible and verifiable life experiences, as well as innumerable aquaintances willing to come forward and say, "I knew him when..."

Obama has practically none of that CV.

Presidents, by the very nature of the job, are very public men, having led very public lives. What we have now is redolent of something else.

In the late 80s Obama asked a radical prof @ Columbia to recommend him to NY Black political leader Percy Sutton. Sutton had been Boro Prez of Manhattan and run several times for mayor. He was a radical, but also a successful businessman. His company was one of the first cable franchises in NYC.(I was one of his customers.) He sold it for a mint to Time Warner. Sutton knew a lot of people and has reminisced about recommending Obama to Harvard. Obama would have needed some sort of degree, but given the time between his graduation year and his arrival at harvard he could have achieved a general studies work study degree from somewhere. With the right intros Harvard is not impossible.

we don’t know though but why the secrets and why does no one know him, why no proof?

A name like barack hussien obama back then in your class you would remember it.
It is said that he joined black groups but no blacks know him either, nor does any teachers.

strange hey

The other possibility is that some one or ones bought him into Harvard.

It really is not, the same as the birth certificate issue is not misguided. There really really are fundamental questions about Barack Obama, his integrity, his origins, and his ascendence, which bear on his position to be leader of the once free United States.

These investigations and discussions help reveal that. And help reveal just who is behind positioning him into such a position.

Assuming from your screen name you are a west coaster; living in Oregon part time it amazes me how truly naive (being kind) the good citizens of Oregon are. Like they believe outright Harvard University is this fine historical University that warrants its reputation, and the New York Times is a fountain of intellectual politics and analysis, and that the Ivy League Northeast represents some stalwart reliable values.

Having matriculated and worked there, you may accept it or not, but we are talking about a truly radical, arrogant Leftist (sinister) element throughout, in both established educational and business institutions. Not everyone, but a truly bigoted calculating element. I do not doubt that Barack Obama has a law degree from Harvard University, but the fact that it means anything at all beyond his own ego, and the manipulative cabal behind him, is a totally open question.

When in Oregon, if it were not so serious I would have to chuckle continuously, like watching a human society out of the Matrix. Good people maybe, but clueless; like some sweet young'un talked into the bedroom by the Snakeman.

If the people who are pulling his strings are as rich and empowered as it would appear from several mysteries surrounding him getting a fake college experience would be very possible. It’s like the birth certificate controversy. If it’s so silly to think there’s a problem then let him produce a room mate or team mate or class mate or a prof, etc.

All goose chases start out as a wild goose chase. It changes very suddenly into a got the goose chase when the goose is gotten!

Not entirely true. Powerful friends could pencilwhip the approval.

Yet nobody in ANY of the classes she supposedly should have recalls this articulate, talented young black man. From my undergrad engineering days, I remember the young black classmates, mainly because there were only two of them in my specialty.

You are incorrect that he had to have been there. All he needs is for there to be a transcript in the files showing good grades. How the transcript got there is besides the point.

Oh sure, at least ordinary citizens would have to, but....?

I don’t know what this post is implying.

How are things in California, Mom?

You're not from Loma Linda are you? I just wondered since you wondered what this post implied.

It implies your president is a damned phony and should have been elected governor of your state rather than sitting in the White House ruining the entire country and ALL our lives.
