    University of Chicago Law School. The university agrees he "served as a lecturer" and was "regarded as a professor," though he was not officially one in title. In that he gave himself the title, the University is siding with him and not "siding with formality."

    Obama a Constitutional Law Professor?

    So he was not a law professor anywhere. Thanks for clearing that up. He remains the Father of Lies. Why do people continue to support him?

    Even after the bills that were sent which BO didn't like. That came during the surge of children, with the Southern Border.
    Surely you're not whining that the democrats didn't let a bill reach Obama's desk, not after 6 years of record filibusters by the GOP? The bill failed, same as hundreds failed because of GOP opposition. I'm not sure what you expect - democrats to vote FOR bills they were elected to oppose? I guess IOKIYAR....

    And the bill passed 68-32 and would pass the House if Boner let it come up for a vote, but he won't. Again, IOKIYAR I guess.

    It was a vote against BO peep and his policies. All ran against BO. Didn't need anything else.

    The difference between senior lecturer and professor is one of tenure only, and even then not all professors always have tenure. Their duties are exactly the same. And ultimately it's up to the university to decide, not you or me:

    UC Law School statement: The Law School has received many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as "Senior Lecturer." From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct status. Like Obama, each of the Law Schoolís Senior Lecturers have high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined.
    and
    Furthermore, Obama was not merely an "instructor" as Phil Singer stated. As a "senior lecturer," Obama was in good company: The six other faculty members with the title include the associate dean of the law school and Judge Richard Posner, who is widely considered to be one of the nationís top legal theorists.
    The difference in this case is so razor thin that not even the university cares.

    Nah, first off: I don't whine, ever..... and especially when it comes to the left or anything that comes up out of their mouths.

    Second.....try reading. What part about you not understanding that Reid pulled back the Border Security provision of the Bill that passed, didn't you get? Were you still confused about that?


    Oh and the House had bills.....BO and Harry didn't like them. Might have had to do with that Part about Limiting BO peeps interference with Immigration. Just sayin.

    Still confused?

    I now realize that you are not a serious poster. Thanks for making that clear.
    I'm a serious poster, but I don't take seriously people who throw around "Tyrant" - if he's a tyrant then so was W. Bush and Reagan and Clinton and Nixon, and we've been living in "TYRANNY" for decades. And using the term to refer to an American POTUS trivializes the regimes under which people really ARE oppressed in lawless states around the world. Unlike those regimes, there are options here, and the House is turning to one of them - a lawsuit and the courts. They can also withhold funds, pass a new law, or impeach this "Tyrant," which would get them executed, or imprisoned, in actual tyrannical regimes. And in two years, this "Tyrant" will walk out of the WH and be peacefully replaced by someone elected by us, which doesn't happen in actually tyrannical regimes. Etc. etc.....................

    To some extent you are correct when you say that every President, or Congress, or SCOTUS has done things that erode the Constitution, which is why when asked what kind of government we had, Benjamin Franklin replied 'A constitutional republic, if you can keep it.'

    However, pointing to that in some attempt to say that we should not be concerned, or do anything about what a particular President does that clearly violates his duties, and oath is ridiculous....It also smacks of the tired old excuse progressives love these days, which is akin to the 4 year olds excuse 'well, Johnny did it too..'

    Each violation is on its own, and should be examined, and adjudicated so.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You should have stopped at "The Father of Lies continues to lie."
    And now I see that you support him.
