    The right wing that made such a fuss about Obama calling himself a professor instead of a lecturer is now making screaming foul at a lawyer calling themselves 'doctor'. The wheels on the bus go round and round....

    Obama a Constitutional Law Professor? | FactCheck.org
    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 School’s 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.

    You are the one spreading falsehoods along with Mother Jones. While I am no fan of bachman (she gives me the creeps, actually), she really DOES have a doctoral degree. J.D. stands for Juris Doctor, and while the use of the title in this case is not customary, it is not dishonest either and it is certainly not lying, as Mother Jones has done here and you have reposted their lie.

    No, you are being dishonest. Referring to oneself as a "Doctor" means they have a PhD or a MD. People with a JD are referred to as "JDs" (most commonly) or "Juris Doctors" (rarely). She was dishonest and she did it to misportray herself as being more educated than she really is. It was dishonest to the core.

    There are other degrees with the designation of Doctor as well, such as Ed. D. As I said, it was not customary, but not wrong.
