    In other words a White Male with a 3.6 GPA and a 740 LSAT (which was about the cut off we saw as yale undergraduates for acceptance into Harvard Law School) would be considered inferior to a Black with a 3.2 and a 640 LSAT score.

    Michelle was not a successful professional. She was an affirmative action hire at Sidley and Austin where she didn't last all that long. Her salary went way up at the hospital where she was an administrator when her husband was elected as a senator.

    btw in the late 70s and mid 80s Yale had the best students which was reflected what the Deans of Chicago and Cornell Law bot told me: "we consider Yale the best undergraduates and that is why we have more Yale undergraduates at our law schools than any other college save our own"
    More race card from the right. That never happens!

    Re: Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare

    Let's do some logical thinking.

    This fellow Princeton Alum, one of thousands Michelle went to school with, wasn't even hired by this company for top management until mid 2010.

    As others have pointed out, the Bush Administration awarded this company contracts well before the ACA. But, let's look at what happened, BEFORE this person, Toni Townes-Whitley, who has not been shown to be connected in any other way, other than they both graduated 1985 from Princeton, and *wow* happened to belong to some campus orgs they both had an interest...

    Let's see what kind of awards the company received before Toni Toni fo Fonie was Daily Collared:








    Media announcements | CGI.com
    Media announcements | CGI.com

    I could go all the way back many more years. That was before Toni stepped even in the door..and look, with Mooch's help, suddenly, instantly! the Contracts were awarded.

    Or not.

    The Daily Collar strikes again. With bullcrap and a side helping of riddled spittle flecks -- and connies run run run with news from the place that has burnt them so often, to post more bad information and rumor, from the place that will continue to burn them.

    What's the top punk number before they ask themselves: Hey, do I really wanna get punked again?

    But just continue. It shows the many of us just what ends they will stoop to smear, and who is worthy of being taken seriously.

    To add:

    "How did CGI land the Healthcare.gov contract?

    CGI Federal's winning bid stretches back to 2007, when it was one of 16 companies to get certified on a $4 billion "indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity" contract for upgrading Medicare and Medicaid's systems. Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts — GWACs, as they're affectionately known — allow agencies to issue task orders to pre-vetted companies without going through the full procurement process, but also tend to lock out companies that didn't get on the bandwagon originally. According to USASpending.gov, CGI Federal got a total of $678 million for various services under the contract — including the $93.7 million Healthcare.gov job, which CGI Federal won over three other companies in late 2011."

    Meet CGI Federal, the company behind the botched launch of HealthCare.gov

    Click the last bolded. Four bidders.

    Yeah, I know. The administration has tacitly admitted they perhaps didn't hire the best and the brightest in that they now claim they've brought in the heavy hitters to fix things up a bit. I do wish that when I was in the construction business I could've taken jobs, screwed them up royally, and been paid anyway - then let the client hire someone else to come in and clean up the mess for me. It's great work if you can get it, apparently.

    Ah, you've moved on to the step after minimize.
    I almost listed that but then you wouldn't have demonstrated it.
    You folks are nothing if not predictable.
    If you don't want to be swept up in a generalization ... don't follow the playbook so precisely.

    ... and ... even if you did screw up royally it's no problem as long as you showed a nice return to your employer at campaign time.
    And the beauty part is that your employer isn't using his/her own money.
    What could be better?

    Lol, you're becoming desperate. What's next? You'll tell me how I'm some Alinsky follower? I'm sure if you sprinkle it with the words Marxism and Fascism, you'll sound real original after a while. Why don't you go and use PaintShop Pro for a bit. I'm sure if you do, you'll get a few people to like your posts or something. Then you'll be really popular.
