Posted on 09/20/2012 9:37:15 PM PDT by Mozilla
A newly published report raises questions about some established narratives in the early life of President Obama, suggesting the president's upbringing was one of privilege and not hardship.
The Washington Examiner published a 10-part report detailing Obama's path to the White House. Some of the information appears to conflict with the narratives the Obamas and the Democratic Party have pushed, most recently at the party's convention in Charlotte.
At the convention, Michelle Obama said they "were both raised by families who didn't have much in the way of money or material possessions."
Examiner Executive Editor Mark Tapscott questioned that.
"I'm sure he had a difficult childhood given the circumstances with his parents, but from a financial standpoint and social standpoint and so forth , it was not an underprivileged childhood," Tapscott said.
The Examiner reports that the Indonesian neighborhood, Menteng, where Obama's mother and step-father raised the young Barry Soetoro was the most exclusive in Jakarta.
Later sent to live with his grandparents in Hawaii where his grandmother was a bank vice president, Obama attended the exclusive Punahoe school. He later went on to Columbia University and Harvard Law School.
In his first job as a Chicago community organizer, Obama rejected more lucrative offers.
But while he worked in the city's impoverished Southside, he lived in exclusive Hyde Park.
Of his 12 years as a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, Time Magazine said in 2008: "Within a few years he had become a rock star professor with hordes of devoted students." But student evaluations obtained by the Examiner tell a different story. In 2003, only a third of students recommended his courses.
"It went steadily down in the last five or six years that he was there. He was among the lowest-ranked professors," Tapscott said.

And Barack doesn’t financially assist his ‘brother’ in Africa because he knows they aren’t related in any way. Would someone please do a DNA test on these two?
Someone has. CIA supposedly has the goods.
So much about Obama that we don’t know. 2016 did the best it could to tie it all up, but the fact is more information is coming out and it reveals that the left is lying about Obama’s past.
They displaced 25,000 poor people (mostly black), made millions, then saw the new housing project degenerate back into poverty.
Jarrett also was smack in the middle of this project.
Democrats facing hardship vs. privilege is boilerplate bio crapola for any Dem seeking national office.
WE know it's BS and THEY know it's BS but if there is ANYTHING rank and file leftists love, it's looney leftist fairytales.
zero has told his fairytale ad nauseum, as has Clinton and Carter and tiny tomny daschle, and Hairy Reed and Nancy Pelousy and . . . . . . .
This Cago bunch is a pretty tough set of slugs, almost puts Slick Willy to shame. Kicked Arpio’s trap shut (much harder than sending Vince to the park). Crammes major media like clowns.
Has (some) Fox folks slinging critical point strategic zingers. Has converted Salvage fully to the dork side.
Gota love it, R.
If you want to see one of the first major efforts to ask questions about Obama’s background and miscellaneous communist/marxist connections, see the Washington Post, May 23, 2008, P. 3, “Obama as You’ve Never Known Him” by WP smearmeister Dana Milbank.
Lots of information given at that press conference and lots of interesting questions asked, none of which the Obama regime has ever answered, including his relationship with a Soviet agent of influence, named members of the Communist Party USA and their sympathizers/fronts, and the interlocking web of subversion of the CPUSA that stretched from Kenwood-HydePark to Hawaii.
Read between the sneering, smearing lines of Milbank’s attack on the conference participants, many of whom only asked questions no one else had ever asked before of Obama, and you will begin to see the real world of Obama. Well color him red!
How did he afford to live in Hyde Park on a community organizer’s salary? How did he afford Columbia? How did he......
That side of him has always been evident for those who have eyes and ears. He’s a democrat and from Chicago. The only redistributing of wealth he does is to his political cronies and he gets kick backs for doing it. He’s just another crook.
I am sure somebody helped him out.
