Obama’s Nonexistent Career as Law Professor

Some say that Barack Hussein Obama’s only qualifications are his skin color, a Muslim name that specifically recalls two prominent enemies of America, and hard-left political views that he usually knows enough to gloss over when the wrong people are listening — all of which endear him to the liberal elite ruling class that installed him in power. But “community organizer” — i.e., Marxist rabble-rouser — isn’t the only job title on his resume. He also taught law at the University of Chicago.

Obama’s past is shrouded in secrecy, but we do have some hearsay about his law-teaching days, via Doug Ross:

I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).

Apparently the Harvard Law Review position was an Affirmative Action appointment awarded to him to give liberals an opportunity to congratulate themselves, much like the position he holds now.

Not only was Hopey McChange never a law professor, at this point he isn’t even a lawyer, having surrendered his license to practice law possibly to escape trouble over false information on his bar application. His Bitter Half isn’t a lawyer anymore either. They’re in good company, by liberal standards; Bill Clinton was forced to give up his law license too. It’s nice to see the profession is maintaining some standards.

We may never know how the Manchurian Moonbat got bumped up the ladder to the top rung so fast, but it’s becoming increasingly obvious that it wasn’t on the strength of legitimate qualifications.
