You forgot occidental. Sort of weird how zerobams admitted he was more into drugs and partying than anything related to high school, but got into occidental, don't you think?
Takes a 3.5 GPA (B+ or AB) to get into that competitive college.
So was obama lying in one of his books about himself or did occidental toss aside their scholastic achievement requirements in order to let a below average stoner get in? Maybe he was just admitted into occidental due to them wanting some black window dressing, aka 'affirmative action'?
Two years later, this below average high school stoner transferred to another intellectual elite school, columbia university. How is this possible? He was below the average high school before going to occidental, then at occidental, no one remembers much of him, so he really didn't make any intellectual impact there.
And all this meant something to columbia's admissions?
Or were they looking for another affirmative action window dressing? He's clearly not demonstrated any brains or ability yet--or there'd be some record.
Then without graduating with any honors or significance, zerobama is admitted to havard law school. Yet another affirmative action slot given to--at best--a sub par student that admitted he really didn't work that hard.
Even as prezzie of the havard law review, he was, well, I do think we have something actually scribbled by him. Funny that it was zerobams actually having to defend letting less qualified people be allowed entrance...aka 'affirmative action'.
The response is classic Obama: patronizing, dishonest, syntactically muddled, and grammatically challenged. In the very first sentence Obama leads with his signature failing, one on full display in his earlier published work: his inability to make subject and predicate agree.
"Since the merits of the Law Review's selection policy has been the subject of commentary for the last three issues," wrote Obama, "I'd like to take the time to clarify exactly how our selection process works."
If Obama were as smart as a fifth-grader, he would know, of course, that "merits ... have." Were there such a thing as a literary Darwin Award, Obama could have won it on this on one sentence alone. He had vindicated Chen in his first ten words. [re: affirmative action letting in inferior students]
Although the letter is fewer than a thousand words long, Obama repeats the subject-predicate error at least two more times. In one sentence, he seemingly cannot make up his mind as to which verb option is correct so he tries both: "Approximately half of this first batch is chosen ... the other half are selected ... " Huh?
Obama would finish his acclaimed memoir, Dreams from My Father, about four years later. Prior to Dreams, and for the nine years following, everything Obama wrote was, like the above sentence, an uninspired assemblage of words with a nearly random application of commas and tenses.http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/08/ ... write.html
No wonder so many institutions were hiding/shielding what he and moochelle wrote before he was immaculated into the presidency.
Obama is a historic conjob. Even the true believers on the left have been played, conned.
Heck, even his "girlfriend" in his book isn't real--it's a composite, an invisible person that exists in his mind (assuming he even wrote his books that is), just like harry ried's informant on romney, dick gephart's friend, etc.
Invisible friends and composite girlfriends must be a requirement to be a new democrat I guess.
Clearly, Barrett and Obama value education more than Walker.
Wow, I guess that's why barrett has continued to do absolutely NOTHING about the terrible government/public schools in his third world town. But barrett has all these grand plans of spending a cool 100 million dollars on a 2.1 mile trolley car that goes, well, not really anyplace....
