LOL - what has Hillary's allegations about Obama have to do with his destruction of an entire housing project and the bankruptcy of a foundation he sat on?

Is your fear of the truth is so intense that you have to throw in a non-sequitur argument that has nothing to do with anything I posted? And for the record, I never bought into that garbage that Hillary started about Obama and where he was born. Apparently, her plan worked on you, though. Seems you just can't let that one go.

Neither of his terms as back bencher Senator does anything to eradicate his disasterous failures when work was actually required of him.
And do you defend Cruz for running for President two years and two months after being sworn into office? If you don't, that is straight up hypocracy at work. Something from someone claiming Obama destroyed records is par for the course. And I am not always an Obama bot. I voted against him in 2012.

What are you even rambling on about? Nevermind, I am clearly not having the same conversation, nor do I care to address your deflections you are doing from my post.

How about we cut spending instead?

Which economists? If they didn't see the crash coming they are worthless. Bringing the troops home would save that much easy and no it wouldn't cause a recession.

LAW REVIEW: Obama became President of the Harvard Law Review by winning the election. Electing the Harvard Law Review President was instituted the year Obama won. He did not earn it based on his grade point average as had been the benchmark in all the years prior to his win.

LAW CAREER: Obama's law days effective but brief - latimes


Senior attorneys at the small firm where he worked say he was a strong writer and researcher, but was involved in relatively few cases -- about 30 -- and spent only four years as a full-time lawyer before entering politics.

"He was doing the work that any first-year or second-year associate would do," Miner said. "In litigation, he was doing basic research and writing memos. . . . In the first couple years he would play a very minor role. He wouldn't know [much], so he would take the lead from whoever was supervising his work."

The law firm says Obama logged 3,723 billable hours during his tenure from 1993 to 2004, most of it during the first four years.


Yet, the average billable hours for new associates is between 1800 - 2000 per year.

Billable-hours requirements mean long days, juggling commitments for young lawyers | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

ADJUNCT PROFESSOR: Obama was an Adjunct lecturer at the Chicago School of Law. He was neither a full time teacher nor on a tenure track. Was Obama a law professor? - tribunedigital-chicagotribune

Additionally, he did not teach Constitutional Law, rather he lectured on issues that were related to the Constitution, but by looking at the course syllabus, it is obvious that this was just another outlet for Obama's community agitation. There is nothing in it, that includes foundational discussions with regard to the underlying principles expressed in the Constitution, it is more of an exercise in reading cases and theories about race relations and history.

I don't defend Cruz for running for president during his first term in the Senate. I personally don't think it is fair to his constituents to take focus away from the job he was hired to do.

The fact is, he did destroy his senate records when he left office, I stated that fact without any innuendo or judgment. You were the one that jumped up with the birther defense.

We are not having the same conversation. You decided to talk about birtherism, which has nothing to do with Obama's thin resume upon which he ran for office. I didn't deflect at all. IF anything, you were the one who brought up the whole birther garbage that was started by Hillary Clinton.

wrong. clinton nor her campaign had anything to do with birtherism. some of her supporters ( the PUMA's ) were among the early birthers but they were not alone nor were they connected to clinton's campaign.
