BREAKING: Obama got all Cís and Dís in college and law school

Here’s a piece from Jennifer Rubin calling Obama out on the ignoramus that he is.  Rubin hits hard with:

He displays contempt for Americans who don’t agree with his flawed policies, in effect instructing them to shut up. But his arrogance is both unwise (these people vote!) and undeserved.

--continued--

Obama was a C or D student in college who was passed and promoted aggressively because he was a smiling, biracial, man with a weird name who more likely than not played up on his Muslim upbringing in Indonesia in all of his college admissions essays and other course work. That’s the sort of thing Columbia and Harvard JUST LOVE…so we can’t imagine he ever hid any of that. It’s what made him interesting to the academic elite…this little brown boy raised in the jungles of the Pacific, mentored by Frank Marshall, with that Kenyan last name.

They just ate that stuff up.

There’s a reason Obama won’t release those transcripts…or any of the other dozens of documents he spends millions of dollars concealing. Historians will eventually find them all, and one day in the future when all of us are long dead future Americans will have a better, if not ever fully accurate, picture of who the 44th President of the United States was.

I'm not sure I buy the C-D grades thing. However, I have long speculated that someone in the MSM would pose the story in the manner presented here. That is, ask why he would spend millions hiding his grades and his past. With his ego, he would have blasted those grades everywhere if they were all A's and B's. Now the logic is that he did get lousy grades, he's not very bright (which is consistent with what we're seeing now), and he was "passed along". If he doesn't defend himself, it gives credence to the position that he did poorly in college and law school. It will be interesting to see if he even attempts to change that perception.

You obviously don’t understand how this works.
There is NO CHANCE WHATSOEVER that any white professor at Occidental, Columbia, or HLS between 1979 and 1993 would have given a person of the African-American persuasion who was an “out” socialist a “C” or a “D”. It is inconceivable.

It is barely possible - and I do mean BARELY - that a brave rebel would have given him a “B”. But not likely.

I’m certain Barry was an “A” student - simply because the system would not allow him to be anything else.

The thing about Ivy league is once you get in, you have to do very little work to pass. It’s soooo expensive they don’t want little Timmy failing. To get an A is probably as difficult as it is in a state school, maybe.

I completely buy the C and D grades. The only reason he probably didn't get all Cs and Ds is because some of his professors inflated his grades because of who and what he is. If he were truly based on merit, there is no question he would have failed out. That is what he is hiding. And he is being aided and abetted by the media who wants to maintain the illusion that he is smart (keeping in line with the age old narrative that all liberal Dems are brilliant and all conservatives and Republicans are dumb as dirt).

The main problem with Barry BamaRamaDingDong’s records is he applied as a FOREIGN student. That info can never get out.

He’s probably more concerned with the actual course titles.
90 credit hours in “victimology, socialism, and I hate America”.

I bet his SAT or LSAT scores are hidden better than H-bomb secrets.

I hate to say it, but this is America and I am not going to take a rumor as his grades.

That being said his actions show me that he is so far out of any President on his ability to run this country, one he is not very bright or the later he hates America, he is a racist, mixture of Black Theology with roots he is proud of from his father's faith and his mother's communism.

Most folks in the media don’t care and will refuse to question Obama or his staff about his grades.

We know virtually nothing about Obama’s past as the media has refused to do similar reporting like they did with Clinton, Kerry, Bush, Gore, etc.

Makes you wonder why it was so important to report about Bush’s past alcoholism but the complete lack of curiosity about Obama self-admitted felonious drug use.

“Junkie. That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man. Except the highs hadn’t been about me trying to prove what a down brother I was. Not by then, anyway. I got high for just the opposite effect, something that could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory. I had discovered that it didn’t make any difference whether you smoked reefer in the white classmate’s sparkling new van, or in the dorm room of some brother you’d met down at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl. You might just be bored, or alone. Everybody was welcome into the club of disaffection. And if the high didn’t solve whatever it was that was getting you down, it could at least help you laugh at the world’s ongoing folly and see through all the hypocrisy and bullshit and cheap moralism.”

Source: Dreams from My Father, by Barack Obama, p. 87 Aug 1, 1996

“Obama confesses to getting high in order to “push questions of who I was out of my mind.” (page 93) He cites using marijuana and cocaine, but he explicitly assures his readers that he did not use crack.(page 93).”

Obama admitted himself that he was in a “cocaine induced haze” through college.

What kind of grades do you think people in a “cocaine induced haze” make?

The point is no one stated this fact in the press. They made him sound like a brilliant individual...dah.

Kennedy was a C student at Haaaavad. I've seen his grades in a traveling display at the Eisenhower Museum.

He is obviously not dumb in the traditional sense. He is intelligent in the ways of a criminal or pathological liar.

His goal is to destroy the USA and it is working. One penstroke at a time. He honestly thinks that is what a president is supposed to do. Be a dictator because that is what he saw growing up. That is what makes him the most dangerous man in the country. That is why the natural born citizen requirement is in the constitution. He found a loophole and exploited it.

You are so confused.
Both my kids went to Ivy League schools.
The vast majority of the students are workaholics, and more than half are on some form of financial assistance.
At Princeton there is NO grade inflation and the kids are graded on a curve.
My daughter worked a part time job the whole time she was there and graduated with a 3.0, working like a dog.
My son was a neuroscience major and also worked very hard for a 3.3.
The reason a lot of the kids at the Ivies get good grades is because they are very smart, super competitive, and they work hard.
Please talk about things you know, otherwise you risk sounding like you don’t know what you are talking about.

Most don't take science as a major. History majors at Ivies are not busting their asses.

MIT, which technically is not Ivy league, is PASS/FAIL the first year. What a joke.
