One of Obama’s Law School Student Speaks

H/T FoxNation

“I actually know the answer to that question.  It’s no (well, technically yes…he didn’t).  President Obama taught “Con Law III” at Chicago.  Judicial review, federalism, the separation of powers — the old “structural Constitution” stuff — is covered in “Con Law I” (or at least it was when I was a student).  Con Law III covers the Fourteenth Amendment.  (Oddly enough, Prof. Obama didn’t seem too concerned about “an unelected group of people” overturning a “duly constituted and passed law” when we were discussing all those famous Fourteenth Amendment cases – Roe v. Wade, Griswold v. Connecticut, Romer v. Evans, etc.)  Of course, even a Con Law professor focusing on the Bill of Rights should know that the principle of judicial review has been alive and well since 1803, so I still feel like my educational credentials have been tarnished a bit by the President’s “unprecedented, extraordinary” remarks…”

    Tarnished, SOS? yes, I know the feeling.
    Every time I hear Obama speak or see him on television, I feel a keen sense of disappointment. There is a man who made it to be president, yet he wasting his opportunity and the country by being a petulant, petty prince. His policies are proving ruinous to the US. All because he has a vision (but he can not see) of what he wants America to look like. A vision, more likely a hallucination, with which only his most ardent sycophants can agree.

      In other words, he can’t see the forest because of the teleprompter?? 😉

    So the only student thus far to admit to being in his class is critical of him?? Not a good record….

      Maybe for a lawyer admitting that he or she was in a law class taught by Obama is tantamount to professional suicide.

      Unless they took the class over again with a real professor.? Then they could certainly look back with impunity.

    President Obama is a kin to Pyrite, otherwise known as “fool’s gold”.
