Skip to comments.Obama Tells High School Students: “I Don’t Think Ethics” Was My Favorite Subject…
Posted on 09/29/2011 2:55:15 PM PDT by maggief
I was not always the very best student that I could be when I was in high school, and certainly not when I was in middle school, Obama said, speaking at Benjamin Banneker Academic High School.
I did not love every class I took. I wasnt always paying attention the way I should have, Obama said. I remember when I was in 8th grade I had to take a class called ethics. Now, ethics is about right and wrong, but if youd ask me what my favorite subject was back in 8th grade, it was basketball. I dont think ethics would have made it on the list.

ethics in 8th grade?
No Progressive Socialist can afford to have ethics as their forte.
I believe every word of that is true. I couldn’t have said anything about him better than his own idiotic description of himself.
Does this man even know or understand that he is the President of the United States of America?
Not only does he not speak like a President, he doesn’t even speak like an adult or like a grown man.
Quelle surprise. OTOH, who thinks a single one of the kids attending this DC high school has ever heard of a class called “ethics”?
Sha’Neekwa whispers to Antwahn: “Yo, he mus’mean ETHNICS. Where we learn’bout our oh-pressed heritage.”
Should that be "that I could have been"?
Apparently English wasn’t a favorite subject either ... or Geography ... (57 states).
But, he’s brilliant ... donchaknow.
Their "ethics" in pursuit of Marxism consists of "The end justifies the means," and "By any means necessary." That includes lying, cheating, stealing, the use of force and much worse.
Ethics wasn't my favorite subject?
(1) It's a horrible quote, nobody wants to get caught saying it.
(2) I don't believe ethics is taught to 8th graders in the USA. Is it taught to Indonesian 8th graders in Islamic schools?
This is quite telling - a failure at ethics!
Notwithstanding my sincere belief that everything that he or the media reports about his life history is a complete fabrication.
So he went to 8th grade? Where? In Indonesia this time? And they studied ethics there? No kidding! We didn’t cover ethics till late high school.
Teleprompter ... video at link.
Or college. Or law school, I'll wager.
What a role model. Good grief.
WTF? Why is he campaigning at high schools?
I think he is saying that he will do whatever it takes to get what he wants. And Michelle went Target shopping today.
He’s a perennial teenager.
What schools were they and where're the grades from those school, dimbulb? Huh? Hmm? Huh?
Can we see them? Huh? Hmm? Huh?
Yet somehow the Ivy League was wetting its pants and falling all over itself to admit him. Interesting.
What is going on with these morons? There's been an overload of completely absurd news blips surrounding the WH zoo the past couple of days. Have they all lost it? Perhaps that's a rhetorical question...
DumBO: Yes, kids, drop out of school, deal some drugs and you too can be Pres__ent.
Sure, Punaho. A fancy pants, super elite academy that John Kerry would struggle to get into.
But just remember, affirmative action had nothing to do with it.
He attended a private school founded by Christian missionaries.
don’t hurt John Kerry’s feelings. He may put in for another Purple Heart.
You could have fooled me!!!/sarc.
The lifetime slump continues I guess because he is not being the best President of the USA that he should be either.
Obama’s allure to the youth culture is the “coolness factor”m. You aren’t ‘cool’ in high school if you take academics seriously (unless you have some tremendous athletic prowess besides). Obama understands this. He’s also irresponsible enough to exploit it.

That’s about as obvious as a hard on at a nudist camp.
This takes the cake !
Although it is true that Harvard is a private school that was founded in the 1600s by Christian missionaries, after a couple of hundred years it became a sanctuary for atheist marxists.
So by the time Mr. Obama attended this school, it wouldn't have provided much help to him to straighten him out ...
Yeah . . . What I said.
( ^8 }
Sorry you took it negatively; I was just reinforcing what you said. At least we agree.
So by the time Mr. Obama attended this school
‘If’ he attended this school. There is no verified indisputable proof that Obama went to any school ever, except the Madrassa in Indonesia. They were the only ones to offer evidence.
No transcripts. No diplomas. No nothing of any kind has ever been released about Obama’s alleged academic credentials.
You can’t even get an authentic SSN or Passport or even a Driver’s License on the guy.
Not to get all birther on the thread, but every time I hear Obama attended this school, or graduated that school, I simply ask, by what proof? Because he said so? PROVE IT.
I, personally, don’t believe a damn word of it. Hey, but that’s just me.
I was referencing Harvard. We know he attended that school. Regarding what grades he received -we'll never know. I actually suspect he got good grades at this Ivy League factory for Statist tools - given that he was on the Affirmative Action fast track at that time. I'd like to see his SATs, and grades at Occidental and Columbia. It's tough to judge from afar, but Mr. President really doesn't come across as the sharpest knife in the drawer.
And I'm with you on the Birther comments. Something just isn't right with the games going on with his Birth Certificate. I actually take this as less of an indictment of him, as more of an indictment of all of our political 'leaders'. They were/are too gutless to call him out on the lack of credible evidence that he met the minimum standards to be eligible for his position.
“Now, ethics is about right and wrong, but if youd ask me what my favorite subject was back in 8th grade, it was basketball. I dont think ethics would have made it on the list.
News Flash: Obama Admits He Thinks Like an Eighth Grader.
As a 50-year-old man, Obama continues to struggle with ethics and very much would prefer basketball over the difficult task of actually doing the work required of a POTUS. It’s nauseating to hear a guy with his pampered life lecturing all the rest of us about how soft we’ve become.
