How did Obama pay for his college?
What more proof does one need of the bias, prejudice, and out right lies that the left wing main stream media brainwashes the sheeple with. For those of you in the flock of sheeple...wake up!

I don't give a crap about Carson's college records. I was pointing out the fact that the people who go off about Obama's college records, say he is hiding something it is a conspiracy, etc, say nothing about any other President and any other Presidential candidate who haven't released those records either.

Friends reunited: drug dealer haunts Obama - Telegraph

The story of the divergent paths taken by the two schoolboys and their awkward, even acrimonious re-connection highlights the extent of Mr Obama's startling rise and the scrutiny he is now under.
It also illustrates the difficulties the Illinois senator has to grapple with as he reconciles the life he has chronicled with a tough election campaign in which a mistake or major embarrassment could spell ultimate defeat.
Now that the 2008 race is in full throttle, any notion of privacy has disappeared.
Journalists have been poring over Mr Obama's first book, Dreams from my Father, published in 1995, and trying to establish the true identities of everyone mentioned. Every last detail is being checked.
So now we have to dig deep in the archives of UKís Telegraph for answers? Where were CNNN/MSNBC/ABC/NBC/CBS and their highly paid reporters? And what about his times at Columbia? Has he ever gotten together with his former classmates? How is it that nobody in his graduating class remembers him? Iíd love to reunion with my former classmates. Has he ever done that? I am a news junky but I donít ever remember a single professor of his coming forward. Weird.

Exactly. The U.S. media can't be troubled to vet Democrat candidates. Why would they act contrary to the interests of the people who have them in their back pocket?

No you don't have to dig deep. Just happened to be the first article on my Google search. Here is a link to the March 2007 Chicago Tribune article.

An old friend's troublesome return - Chicago Tribune

Obama is quoted in the article as stating.

"Suddenly everybody who's ever touched my life is subject to a colonoscopy on the front page of the newspaper"

The stories from 2007 are when Obama was no where near being the front runner and was 20%+ points down in the polls.

The reports that no one remembers Obama at Columbia have been debunked years ago and was covered by the media during the election cycle.

Anytime someone comes out and says such and such has been debunked and litigated I know for sure it hasnít been. I can name half dozen professors of mine. Where are Obamaís professors? You got names?

Typical of Obama, whining and complaining when someone in the media actually does their job and researches his past, to even a minimal extent. Given his 7 years of throwing temper tantrums like a 12 year old, that's not surprising. Did he blame Bush?

You do not have to go to law school to pass the state bar. Where are his clients to vouch for his ability??? How many cases did he win/lose?

You do realize, don't you, that Obama is already the president? Quit trying to deflect away from the topic of vetting the CURRANT candidates for the job. Ben Carson has only been running for president a matter of months and already he's wetting his pants over background checks. The guy can't take the heat and needs to get out of the kitchen.

Would you want your attorney to publish your name as a client?
