Laurence Tribe a professor at Harvard who said Obama was one of his two best students. "He had a very powerful ability to synthesize diverse sources of information." [3]

Translation: Barry, please, please, please nominate me to the Supreme Court. I'll even say you're the best student I ever had.

How cute. A contrived quote after the fact. Barry was such an incredible student that he went down in history as the only editor of the Harvard Review NEVER to have written even a single, solitary law article while it's editor.

Wow, that's a classic example of damning someone with faint praise.

It reminds me of the ambiguous recommendation letters.

My understanding is that he wrote an law review “note” defending/promoting abortion.

Obama’s pnly Columbia connection is a rather questionable character himself. Did Obama really attend Columbia?

What was his LSAT Score? Did he pass the Illinois Bar Exam first time out?
I’d like answers To the above two questions. His grades at Columbia and Harvard are meaningless: aside from odd maverick conservative student, everyone at both schools gets an “A.”

Resume of: B HUSSEIN OBAMA

1.) COLB
Proven fake by more than one source
2.) Sketchy childhood
We know some details - Lots of gaps - muslim?
3.) College thesis has vanished
Was it anything like Michele’s?
4.) Overseas travel
Pakistan? Why? On what passport?
5.) Law records
What cases did he represent?
6.) Senate records disappeared
What was he trying to hide?
7.) Associations
Rev Wright, Ayers, Rezko, Michele etc.
8.) Senate voting record
That speaks for itself
9.) SCOTUS
Who would his choices be?
10.) Proven Liar
11.) Inexperience
12.) Racist, Sexist, Radical, Marxist views

His judgement in the people he associates with and his radical/marxist views scare the hell out of me.

.

Here’s some more of his friends and supporters:

>William Ayers
(Weatherman Underground bomber, unrepentant domestic terrorist)
Frank Davis
(Member Communist Party USA, Early mentor to Obama)

/>Jeremiah Wright
(Black Liberation militant, racist, and Pastor)
Tony Rezko
(Corrupt Financier, ties to Terror Financing)

/>Louis Farrakhan
(Nation of Islam Leader, racist, anti-American)
RailaOrdinga
(Fundamental Islamic Candidate, Kenya, Obama’s Cousin)

/>Daniel Ortega
(Marxist Sandinista Leader. Nicarauga)
Raul Castro
(Hard-line Communist Leader, Cuba)

/>Communist Party Illinois
(US Communist Political Party)
Socialist Party USA
(Marxist Socialist Political Party)

/>The New Black Panther Party
(Black Militant Organization, anti-American and racist)
Hamas Terrorist Organization
(Islamic Terrorist Organisation)

/>More than 80 attorneys for Guantanamo detainees
-who have been offering free-of-charge legal services.
Not surprising that lawyers for Muslim terrorists would support Obama.

/>The Communist Party USA

/>The Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism

/>Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim congressman

/> Sam Graham-Felsen, (Obama campaign’s official blogger)
He spent time in France taking part in labor riots, has written for a socialist magazine, hung a communist flag in his home, and was a fan of Marx while at Harvard.

/>Kwame Kilpatrick

/>MoveOn.org
George Soros’ (slumlord undergoing trial) son, Jonathan Soros, an attorney and financier, recently promoted to deputy manager of Soros Fund Management , is personally involved with MoveOn.org’s activities.

/>Muslim Americans for Obama ‘08

/>The Muslim American Society

/>Obama Supporters for Marijuana Law Reform

/>Obama Youth
“Obama Youth” had as its logo the Islamic crescent and stars (until word got out on the net and they had to clean it up)

/>President Daniel Ortega
..who statee, “It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. ... but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change.”

/>Project Islamic H. O. P. E.
..who displayed Obama as their banner boy until word got out and they had to clean that up.
Obama is no longer there on the site.

/>Rev. Al Sharpton
..obviously supports Obama, but obviously advised to keep it quiet.

/>Shepard Fairey
Official artist of the Obama posters...remarkable resemblance to Marxist posters

/>Tony Rezko
Obama said that he estimated Rezko raised about 50,000 to 60,000 for his political career.
Obama has collected at least $168,308 from Rezko and his circle.

/>Malaak Shabazz
Daughter of Malcomb X

/>The Socialist Party USA

/>George Soros
billionaire - anti-Israel master manipulator

They all support, endorse, and/or friends and mentors and advisors of BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.

They all hate America, they all want to destroy America as we know it. They all want the United States to retreat in the war on terror, and they all want to make over the United States into a marxist/socialist/collective nation

Obama’s own core ideology/theology, coincide with these people.
This says all you need to know about Obama.. You can and should judge a man by the company he keeps.
Maybe this explains Obama hands were over his crotch instead of saluting the flag/anthem and refusing to wear the flag pin- claiming to do so was ‘false patriotism’.
