Donald Trump: Barack Obama too dumb for Ivies
Politico.com ^ | 4/25/2011 | MAGGIE HABERMAN

Posted on 04/26/2011 2:35:47 AM PDT by South40

Donald Trump is upping the ante against President Barack Obama's legitimacy, raising questions on Monday night about how the president was admitted to two Ivy League schools.

Trump openly questioned how Obama, who he said had been a "terrible student," got accepted into Columbia University for undergraduate studies and then Harvard Law School.

Certainly affirmitive action was part of it, but there’s probably more too it.

Why would a person of achievements hide and seal all of these record? Why?

1 Certified copy of original birth certificate
2 Columbia University transcripts
3 Columbia thesis paper
4 Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups
5 Harvard University transcripts
6 Illinois State Senate records
7 Illinois State Senate schedule
8 Law practice client list and billing records/summary
9 Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mother
10 Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
11 Occidental College Transcripts
12 Parent’s marriage Certificate
13 Record of baptism
14 Selective Service registration records
(Did Obama Actually Register for Selective Service?
This supposed revelation of 0's SS records has been debunked here and here.)
15 Schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
16 Passport records for all passports
17 Scholarly articles
18 SAT and LSAT test scores
19 Access to his grandmother in Kenya
20 List of all campaign workers that are lobbyists
21 Punahou grade school records
22 Noelani Kindergarten records are oddly missing from the the State of Hawaii Department of Education.
23 Obama 1964 Divorce Papers - 13 Pages - Missing Pg 11
24 Why isn't Barack Obama still a member of the Illinois bar and where are all of the relevant documents?
25 Why isn't Michelle Obama still a member of the Illinois bar, after only about four years of practice, and where are all of the relevant documents?

Anyone who cares about their country would be very concerned that a POTUS had hidden every scrap of information of his life that he possibly could.

Specifically “Dr. Khalid al Mansour”, formerly American Black Panther/Muslim aka “Donald Warden” and advisor to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.

(from 2008, the referenced Percy Sutton has since died)

Percy Sutton, NYC political icon in the African American community, tells a news reporter that Dr. Khalid al Mansour solicited favor and recommendation on behalf of Barack Hussein Obama in order to secure Barack’s entry into Harvard. Think about that.

Sutton was approached by a Dr. Khalid al Mansour on Obama’s behalf, to secure (procure?) Barack’s admission into Harvard from the rather second college, Occcidental.

Khalid al Mansour is a vile antisemite, devout (radicalized) Muslim and high level adviser to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.

During the 1950’s and 1960’s, Percy Sutton became one of American’s best known black lawyers. He represented many controversial figures such as Malcolm X and argued many cases (photo: Malcolm X and Percy Sutton at a Harlem rally on Seventh Avenue between 125th and 126th streets, 1963)

Please See post #8

Dr Khalid al Mansour (aka Black Panther Donald Warden) pulled Saudi ties and drafted wealthy black lawyer Percy Sutton to get him in with his disasterous grades.

It is documented in interviews.

Actually it may be worse than that from what I've been reading. All speculation of course but speculation's all we got when the man hides all his records.

I'm glad Trump is harping on this. The One is extremely thin-skinned and arrogant and not accustomed to criticism from anyone. He'll have an episode shortly and really show his temper.

No, he is not. And I'd bet the fact that the birther issue makes the headlines daily pisses him off beyond words, even if the talking heads in the lame-stream media are working double-time defending him.

I don’t think it takes bribe money to get ignoramuses into Harvard (and back out the other end). Just standard tuition will do. And affirmative action ignoramuses don’t even have to spend their own money.

Hah! 'The Donald' is out-lawyering the lawyer. He knows the answer to the question nobody dares bring up (that'd be 'racist').

That being said, another question should be asked: How the heck did Barry get into Occidental College? From it's website, acceptance is NOT easy, nor automatic, and a H.S. 'C' student 'ain't' gettin' in.

So ... how did the pot smokin' Barry? The guy was a black version of Jeff Spicoli -- without the Surfing part.

I bet it also scares him. If he was truly born in Kenya (which I believe), then the daily discussion of this issue must be making him very, very nervous. Either that or he's using lots of drugs.

Actually Harvard routinely rejects 75% of all applicants with perfect SAT scores. What counts more than raw knowledge nowadays is either legacy connections, massive amounts of money to donate or political connections. That also explains how a moron like Obama could get accepted over more qualified black applicants.

Only if there were a strong chance that he would end up in federal penitentiary for the fraud he has committed on this country. But I see no chance of that happening, since he's black and the cowardly "leadership" in this country would fear the riotous repercussions.

Just curious, but can anyone provide a link with documentation of race-based college admission policies?
I know of a student who had excellent grades and AP classes who was disappointed and discouraged after being rejected.

It seems that for many reasons, this year is particularly nasty for aspirants.

By the way, college applicants know about this— point system penalties for stable two-parent families, certain “privileged” ethnicities and private school educated students— but it would be nice to have something to show the skeptics.

Yeah, I’ve heard that....and don’t doubt the story(ies) one bit.

Still, with all due respect, you’re missing my point. It’s not that he had connections that got him in (makes the mind reel wondering “Why this idiot, of all people?”). My point is that, no matter what, I don’t feel he actually ATTENDED...he’d have never been able to keep up, let alone graduate, let alone head up the Harvard Law Review, etc., etc.

It’s all 100%, A-1 bullshit.
