Skip to comments.Former Univ. of Chicago law school dean: Obama was never offered tenure
Posted on 09/12/2012 8:08:36 AM PDT by RobinMasters
A longtime professor and one-time dean of the University of Chicago Law School told The Daily Caller that Barack Obama was never offered tenure, despite the assertions of a New York Times reporter who covers the president and the first family.
Other faculty members dreamed of tenured positions; [Obama] turned them down, wrote Times White House Correspondent Jodi Kantor, author of The Obamas, in a July 30, 2008 profile of the presidents twelve years as a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School.
And yet, according to longtime University of Chicago law professor Richard Epstein, Obama was never actually offered a tenured faculty position. Nor, for that matter, was he ever a constitutional law professor.
I have no idea where Jodi got her story about the tenure offer, said Epstein, adding that he immediately wrote Kantor to tell her she was wrong.
Tenure offers require votes from faculties approved by the provost, and need a scholarly output. He was approached with the possibility of an entry level position without tenure, but it never got to the faculty for want of interest on his side, Epstein confirmed via email.
Epstein was the law schools interim dean during 2001. His account contradicts a claim Kantor has repeatedly made, that a tenure offer came from Dean Daniel Fischel.
Mr. Obama turned the offer down, Kantor wrote in 2008. She expanded on that claim later that day, writing for a Times blog. When the law school tried to hire Mr. Obama after his failed 2000 congressional race, it was for a tenured job. Kantor wrote. In our interview, I asked [Fischel] if he meant tenure-track, and he said no.

Perhaps more are now seeing the Emperor has no clothes.
Of course he wasn’t offered tenure. Everything about Obama is made up for the morons we have in this country who are registered to vote.
why do so many find it hard and wait so long to speak up
Let's say what he is/was....a "black political" token....just like Fluke is a "female political token" at Georgetown.
Now the question is...who was "financing" him?
And I kind of think it's absurd that Michelle was tutoring him at the law firm...Does that mean like showing him where the water cooler is?? Were either of them ever really involved in any case??
I am shocked, just shocked, that a New York Times White House Correspondent would lie to make Obama look good.

zero’s whole life is a fabrication
maybe because people from Chicago understand the “Chicago Way” and they love their families too much to put them in danger?
