And said he remembers just about everyone in his class.Said if he didn't have perfect grades which he didn't have . He couldnt have got into Harvard. unless he was a foreign exchange student.

A political science major at Columbia, Obama spent five years after college working as a community organizer with black churches in both Harlem and Chicago before enrolling at Harvard Law School, where he made national headlines as the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review.

In February of 1990, the Associated Press ran an article saying that Obama told them that he would ?like to someday return to community work, and has not ruled out a future in politics.? The Los Angeles Times ran a story in March of that same year in which Obama was quoted as saying that he planned to run for public office sometime ?down the road.?

In a Boston Globe story that ran in February 1990, John Owens, Obama?s former co-worker from Chicago, was quoted in a telephone interview: ?This guy sounds like he?s president of the country already,? Owens said of Obama. ?I?ve never met anyone who could leave that impression after only five minutes.??

Remember, national headlines but this guy doesn't remember him? Apparently he has a faulty memory.
Report as
He was just saying that the only way he could have got in Harvard from Occidental was as a foreign exchange student. His grades were not good enough.
Report as
His grades weren't good enough for Harvard? But he became prez of the law review? Very doubtful.
Report as
There is a reason he does not want people to see his college transcript.
Report as
Because he is tired of having to show proof of things that no other prez has ever had to show to satisfy all you "real amerikans"

If he was not a foreign exchange student why does he refuse to release his college transcripts and related info to put the matter to rest once and for all.

Because he is tired of having to make public stuff no other prez has been asked for to satisfy all you true "Americans"

Then Romny should not have to show tax records to satisfy the libs. It's not required by law.
Report as
How Romney deals with taxes is more important than obamas grades.
Report as
Hummm that's a matter of opinion. I think seeing the transcripts of how he got into college and how it was paided for and weither he enter as a foreign exchange student matters. Mitt is not required to release tax records and Obama is not required to release his transcripts. If neither is hiding anything they should both release info the other wants to see.
Report as
Obama has released more info than any other prez. Enough is enough.
I don't care what his grades were, I do care about mitt raising almost every fee in Mass while governor.

His records are sealed in Chicago.
Report as
No records are sealed.
Report as
Let me rephrase. Records that are private for anybody are also private for him. No records are sealed by law.

I saw something on it he couldn't find a job till he got the community organizer job and Michelle was a sorry lawyer as well.
Report as
You know if he was an American. And he went to school as a foreign exchange student. That would be fraud .
Report as
Regardless, his entire administration is a fraud.

Civil Rights lawyer, but not all of his cases involved civil rights.
He worked on 30 cases in 4 years...That averages out to 7 cases a year.

His case details are listed here:
http://articles.latimes.com/2008/apr/06/?

Out of those 30 cases, he only actually showed up in court for 10 cases in his entire career:

Obama admits he played a mostly behind-the-scenes role at his law firm, Miner Barnhill & Galland. He researched the law, drafted motions, prepared for depositions and did other less glamorous work during his three years full-time and eight years "of counsel" to the firm. Many trial lawyers spend their time similarly, part of a trend over the last 20 years of settling a greater percentage of cases before trial.

A review of the cases Obama worked on during his brief legal career shows he played the "strong, silent type" in court, introducing himself and his client, then stepping aside to let other lawyers do the talking.

Only once did Obama appear before the prestigious 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, where Judge Richard Posner is legendary for tearing into inexperienced lawyers. But Posner knew Obama as a fellow senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School and kept his grilling polite

"I was an associate, and a lot of my work was in the research and writing," Obama told the Sun-Times on Sunday.

"I was one of the better writers. I ended up doing the more cerebral writing, less trial work," Obama added. "That's actually something I regret -- not doing more trial work."

"He wrote lots of substantial memos, but he didn't try any cases," said Judson Miner, a partner in the law firm where Obama worked.
His practice was confined mainly to federal court in Chicago, where he made formal appearances in only five district court cases and another five in cases before the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals -- a total of 10 cases in his legal career. He was on the winning side of just about all those cases. Miner said there were 30 cases to which Obama contributed in some way.
