    Blown out of proportion? How so? Either he received preferential treatment because of his skin color or he didn't.

    1. Innuendo and speculation, mostly.
    2. I don't see how Mrs. Obama's academic records are even remotely germane to anything.
    You were the one who brought it up, remember? But it seems it was all the truth about Michelle who, despite this preferential treatment, still wasn't proud of her country.

    Are there not varying degrees of "preferential treatment"?

    I did bring it up, just as an aside.

    The other articles that caught my eye were:


    Funny, but you know those articles remind me of the following sycophancy:

    George Will: How a presidency unravels (Please note, Will's article is only the source for a direct quote, none of his analysis is being used here)

    Meh. Some people. Really.

    Suffice it to say from the following examples that you aren't going to get any sort of honest opinions about Obama from the leftist press and leftist sources.
    I know exactly what the Washington Monthly is. But way to dismiss the source, rather than refute the content within.

    “He knows exactly how smart he is. ... I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. ... He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do. He would never be satisfied with what ordinary people do.”
    Great stuff! I don't see why Affirmative Action was even required for a brainiac like BHO.

    The content therein is sophomoric opinion designed only for those who would vote for this guy in the first place, the Low Information Voter.

    And in another thread, I'm evil for not refuting personal attacks on Palin. If that's not hypocritical, I don't know what is...

    Excuse me, but I believe I did post a challenge to the content of the article. Perhaps you missed it?

    No time to look at all 50, but about the top 5.


    1. Passed Health Care Reform - Saddled with a legislative monstrosity, a failing policy that is going to bail out insurance companies to the potential tune of $ Trillions, and a failed technology roll out due to careless lack of management
    2. Passed the Stimulus - Little more than political payback at the people's expense when you examine to whom the stimulus payments went, with little economy improvement if any at all
    3. Passed Wall Street Reform - Another legislative monstrosity that won't even accomplish it's primary goal of ending too big to fail, and also increased costs of excessive regulatory compliance, including the BS minorities financial sector job set aside
    4. Ended the War in Iraq - True he did. As of yet to be seen if a stable, non Muslim extremist regime will be able to survive or not
    5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan - Isn't this the same as the one above? I'd consider drawing down troops certainly part of ending a war


    So like I'm not seeing stellar achievement here.

    Then you're comment of "I don't see how Mrs. Obama's academic records are even remotely germane to anything" was not germane.

    Then don't address it if you don't like it. I really couldn't care less.
