    You'll have to ask the people who gave it to him that question, all I know is that he's got it.

    Odd bit of information. Is there a connection I'm missing?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yeah, Mitt got into Harvard because he was a top student, Obama got into Harvard mainly due to his color

    Humm. Support that with valid sourcing.

    Btw the only magical thing about Harvard is getting in. You can look up their grade inflation and how their actually education isn't quite as top as some believe.

    But here, I'll settle for sound support.

    we don't know what sort of grades Obama got at Occidental or Columbia-those are sealed and Obama won't let people see them

    Normally, when one hides something its because the information hurts him. If Obama was a 4.0 Student at either school, its reasonable to believe we'd been shown the grades. At the Time Obama applied to Harvard, harvard gave black applicants huge breaks which allowed blacks with ok grades to be rated ahead of whites/Asians with high honors.

    Obama did not make any kind of honors at Columbia. No one remembers much of him there.

    we can make a very good assertion that a guy with no honors who applied to a school that practiced massive affirmative action at the time was the beneficiary of affirmative action

    you cannot because it flies in the face of liberal dogma. I can because I deal with reality and the reality is-thousands of white men were rejected each year who had higher scores than Obama
