Skip to comments.Rush: caller says Obama flunked at Harvard but was passed anyway by Liberal professors

According to Rush, a caller told him that "Obama got the worst grades ever recorded at Harvard" but was carried through by bleeding-heart affirmative action liberals. Then, Rush says, the caller hung-up before Rush could ask him questions. Other listeners must have heard this. I mean, if Harry Reid can get a phone call telling him that Mitt Romney has never paid income tax, I can certainly also believe the Rush caller.
Since Obama refuses to release his college records his awful grades may be a reason, so this story has credibility.
I heard him, and I don’t think he’s being serious. He was making a point that Harry Reid is using the “someone told me...” strawman to get Romney to release his tax returns. He’s calling to question the veracity of Reid’s claim through absurdity. He’s very good at that.
I was told he never actually attended classes at accidental or hotard. He needs to provide his transcripts to prove otherwise. Until then I am. It even certain he graduated from aloha high school.
This is one of Rush’s artful ways of being absurd to illustrate absurdity. See: Dingy Harry for background.
Exactly! And I hope keeps the ruse going.
This is like when disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner claimed that his cellphone was hacked, and then everyone demanded that the FBI investigate because we can't have the phones of Congressmen getting hacked.
If Reid claims that Romney didn't pay taxes, then Reid needs to go to the IRS, not the Huffington Post.
obama needs to prove the caller wrong before the press corpse gets ahold of it.
My understanding is most graduate courses are pass-fail, with fail being a real rare occurrence as long as the money is paid on time.
As far as grades, you ought to see what a HS graduate from Ga public schools is capable of doing. It isn’t uncommon for a HS graduate Valedictorian to be required to take “learning support” classes before they are allowed to take real, college level classes. Back in the day the word was “remedial” not “learning support”.
Grades mean bupkis these days.
Exactly. I understood what he was doing the moment he said it.
Well played Rush!
He’s demonstrating how easy it is to call to question a Liberal Democrat’s motives. Simply create a parallel straw man argument.
Reid is now admitting that he’s party to someone’s felony. He says he knows that Romney is committing a felony. If that’s the case, it’s his duty as a lawmaker to bring Romney to justice. If he has this knowledge, he needs to inform the FBI and the IRS to bring Romney to justice. Otherwise he’s aiding and abetting a felon.
We all know that Reid has nothing and nothing will be done or said about this. The MSM is in the pocket of the Liberals. Thus, Harry Reid is nothing more than a liar.
Rush is demonstrating this by using the Obama transcripts argument to the point of being ludicrous. If this “caller” was telling the truth, then Obama should release his transcripts to show Limbaugh and the nation that it’s not true.
We all know damn well that won’t happen.
Clever ruse by Rush. It makes me think, though that republicans ought to run against Harry Reid, nationwide. He’s the epitome of a worthless, corrupt politician. Demonize Harry, which would be easy, and by default anyone who supported him would stink rather foully.

Yes, I understand he was being funny — but with a point.
Meanwhile, why did Obama and Michelle relinquish their law licenses, anyway? Found to have cheated on the bar exam, perhaps?
I also heard from someone Obama was the First Black Indian who attended Harvard. That’s a double affirmative. You don’t even have to study to pass.
While I believe The Disaster received poor grades, it is hard to believe no one in the history of that school (375 yrs) received as bad or worse grades.
So did these professors change Fs into Ds or Fs into Bs or what? Plenty of people have flunked out of Harvard when professors were honest.
I have NO doubt that The Disaster had horrible grades EVERYWHERE in his educational experience. Any prizes or accolades where just handed him without cause i.e. the Nobel “Peace” Prize forever tarnished by being given him for absolutely nothing.
As to the law license, he may very well have passed the Bar exam in Illinois since that seems to be on the up and up and the reason I say this is because Richie Daley had to take it three times before passing. This implies to me that, if the son of the most powerful politician in Illinois is failed, The Disaster may well have actually passed it. He would also have to have SOME knowledge of the law to have taught at the University of Chicago even on an adjunct basis.
