Skip to comments.That Professor Obama Dog Won't Hunt Anymore

"Professor" Obama, like so many of the other Obamas, is a fraud.
Law Professor Steven Carter shakes his disapproving finger and sets Governor Romney and the rest of us straight: "If you think President Obama has bad ideas, say so. If you want to criticize his record, go ahead[.] ... [But] please don't drag the faculty lounge into it. Leave that space free for our serious, uncensored arguments. Our democracy will be the better for it." (Emphasis mine.)
Professor Carter is so determined to enlighten us that he even accepts the inappropriate term "faculty lounge" rather than the more accurate "faculty club" for the purposes of his piece. Faculty lounge is what Romney, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and other skeptics have popularized as shorthand for Cloistered Cloud Cuckoo Land of Tendentious Theoretical Speculation in the Academy, and which many opponents now view as the source of Obama's and his apparatchiks' malignantly misguided policies. (Faculty lounges proper are usually dingy holes reminiscent of car dealer service department waiting rooms. These are found in elementary and secondary schools, while in colleges and universities "lounges" are generally reserved for graduate students, teaching assistants, and the growing corps of adjunct cheap labor. "The Club" is the usual "space" for the kind of elevated clash of titanic tenured professorial intellects that Carter romanticizes, and in many of them the ambiance and fare are well above lounge standards.)

Odd that he doesn’t mention that Obama was never a “professor” anyway. He was an adjunct instructor on yearly contracts, and if not for affirmative action and political pressure he never would have been kept on as long as he was, even at that, since he never published a single scholarly article or did anything at all to advance himself in the profession.
That was yet another reason why Fr. Jenkins should be deeply ashamed of inviting Obama to receive an Honorary Doctorate of Laws at Notre Dame. That is the kind of reward that is normally given in recognition of a lifetime of distinguished achievement. Not to a lousy instructor who never accomplished anything at all in his field.
That is apart from the fact that Obama is one of the most extreme abortion lovers ever to run for political office in this country, with a record of killing babies who were born alive.
If he wants respect as an academic, he can release his transcripts.
