    we all know that Obama refuses to disclose his HS and college record but we also know Obama did not even make Cum Laude or Distinction at Columbia meaning he had lower than a 3.2 average yet he was accepted at Harvard Law (like many other blacks with mediocre grades) in stead of thousands of whites and asians with 3.7 GPAs or higher

    So what? You have made it abundantly clear that you DO NOT support the principle of admitting the best qualified student over the lesser qualified student in college admissions. Supporters of preferences like yourself should be more than fine with the Obama history. It is consistent and in keeping with your own stance on this issue regarding the validity of discriminatory preferences.

    I have made it abundantly clear that private colleges should be able to admit whom they want unless it violates laws against racial or ethnic discrimination. I also argue that allowing mediocre black students in over smarter or more qualified asian and white students provides no benefit to either those accepted or those denied. I totally oppose legacy admissions or jobs in the public sector as well.


    Its abundantly clear that the obama slurpers will make all sorts of excuses for their shining turd

    Interesting how so many people don't know that and never did any research on the Obama resume. Seems that the resume doesn't matter regarding Obama nor do the results.

    the press didn't vet him either. lots of his voters had no clue what he stood for or what he even pretended to stand for. I know dozens of pampered country club wives who voted for this guy because they were trying to prove to themselves and each other they either weren't racist or they were "enlightened"

    it is hard to fathom a successful presidential candidate whose support was based on so little rational thought.

    I am getting tired of your bs and typical baiting and trolling. Either offer something of value or I am done with you, not put you on ignore but won't be responding to your posts.
    talk about the pot calling the kettle black........

    Oh please, we heard it all, Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, birth certificates...

    Exactly what don't we know now that we didn't know before?

    Unfortunately for you, fortunately or unfortunately for John McCain and and Barack Obama it's not up to them, and it's not up to you to decide what the voters get to use in evaluating a candidate.

    They knew all that stuff and voted for him anyway.

    You and Conservative are sour about it and it shows.

    Yeah, some more evil people we haven't gotten rid of that are rooting beneath us are the top 1% CEOs. Mainly the CEO of Goldmen Sachs. He robbed America and got away with it.

    Some more evil people we need to do away with, the terrorist in this picture:
