"She was not someone you would think of as a critical thinker. I dont remember anything about her as a student. I remember her as a personality."
So after one week we know more about Paula Broadwell than we know about President Obama after four years. Something ain’t right here. (I know, just pointin’ out the obvious...)
I wonder if Obama fell short...
Oh, I'm sure they're all VERRRRRY shocked at that, those academics, you know? I mean....NO ONE does THAT..!!!
She should have used the Fauxcahantas Warren dodge and said that she was an Indian. That ploy seemed to work well for at least one white woman with an over inflated opinion of herself.
Joe Plumberization machine now passing the Millenium Falcon, it seems...?
HOW MANY days did it take the FBI to get to Bengazi..? TWENTY THREE DAYS...?
“She was not someone you would think of as a critical thinker.”
“She basically had no appreciation or understanding of Marxist-Leninist economic or social theory, and as for her comprehension of American and Western neo-colonialist opression of emerging and indigenous peoples, well...”
She’s doesn’t spend much time at home.
It’s interesting that it’s all ways the woman’s fault when a man strays. So because she is clearly attractive and telegenic, she must be characterized as a pushy sl^t, not bright, academically challenged. Some how it’s her fault that the General couldn’t keep the little general in the barracks!
Is P.B.’s harvard grades public information???
You know, I don’t think I’ve seen the question asked that, if she’s a biographer, why did she need another writer’s help, enough so that the other writer got credit on the book’s cover.
Maybe she WAS a plant.
I have no idea, but it’s worth asking.
“One of Broadwells former professors at Harvard described her as a self-promoter who would routinely show up at office hours.”
And I bet that fed the ego of the professor very well. I have never seen one of them that didn’t appreciate their students’ attention or adulation.
Pretty common in the academic world...
This is a joke of an article. Apart from adultery, she has a great resume. The fact that a couple of Harvard professors did not like her is, if anything, a plus.
If she applied herself more she could have gotten that much desired degree in Public Misadministration.
She might not be a critical thinker, but it looks like she usually gets what she wants. I keep thinking about the woman in Presumed Innocent. Broadwell reminds me of that character.
So, West Point Grad, Harvard MPA degree, grad studies in London.
This is a hit piece. I remember they used to denigrate GW Bush’s intellect and forget his MBA from Harvard.
One thing about Harvard: they’ll admit the usual run of politically correct idiots and preference quota morons, but, once in, the faculty actually expects you to work - work like a dog - to manage and successfully complete your studies.
Evidently, that didn’t sit too well with this character.
Petraeus and Broadwell’s last meeting together. Check out Broadwell’s dress.
