Barack Obama: The Law & Order years

I just saw this video today of Barack Obama in a 1991 “black history minute” for TBS. Listen to Barack Obama and his voice. I thought for a moment he was auditioning to be the voice of the Law and Order intro.

Now listen to the Law and Order intro:

    HAHAHA! He is such a phony! The guys played our country for fools and we gave him the keys to our country!

    Arrowhead demonstrates that this post is not intended to discuss anything of substance. It is a non sequitur offered to give the Rush-bots another chance to rehearse their Two-Minutes Hate. Sigh.

    So “Bill Clay,” how about you post a video of yourself from 20 years ago so we can say silly things about whose TV voice you most resemble?

      I went over to your site Cory and read you rip Noem again. Nothing original this time accept you have a serious obsession that I’m guessing your wife does not care for.

      And yes Obama was quite a poser in his youthful days. (do you think he memorized that or was he using a telepromter back then also?

        You do realize you going to his site counts as a hit, right? Now his is up to three for the month. Be careful, lest you make him think his site is relevant.

          Good one duggersd! So if people get over to the site and see more than 3 hits then what? Will you feel like a tool or a fool?

          I’ve met and known people that feel a sense of pride and personal fulfillment in tearing others down…but in the end I always end up feeling sorry for them.

          So is it 3 hits for the month or are you just a blowhard that diminishes anyone else with a legitimate critique of Cory’s website?

          You are an educator right? How do you see your involvement as a party sycophant that embraces the platitudes at the expense of intellect?

          Dugger, I know of a lot of teachers that have left the business of educating kids for the wonderful life of selling insurance. Have you ever thought of that career path?

        Pretty sure people are looking to Cain for clear ideas and thought just like he’s had all campaign long.

        How can you not love Cain for his perfectly crystal clear views on Libya and foreign policy. The guys is a scholar!

      Interesting you should mention that. We have seen W’s scores from college and we have seen Perry’s scores from college. We still have not need Obama’s scores from college or his thesis, etc. Since you want to dig stuff up from college days and all.

        Duggersd, just guessing Obama being named to the law review was just because no one else showed up…do you really want to go there? Oh yeah, that affirmative action ‘stuff’ you like to bring up…stick it! Harvard has a reputation that they won’t bend for someone who doesn’t qualify.

        However, if you want to bring up affirmative action I hope you will denounce all of the affirmative action stories that the right wing press has brought up around Herman Cain.

        Wait…What’s that? No affirmative action stories have been done by the Fox news crowd? Wow, go figure. Those seemed to be pretty popular for Obama.

        1. duggersd

          I do not remember bringing up affirmative action. However, it is true that AA makes it so people who have more qualifications are passed by in favor of those with less. But that is not the point. The point has been, Mr. A. Nonymous, that the media have combed all over W’s grades as I am thinking was brought up by you, but I cannot tell. The media have also combed all over Rick Perry’s grades in college. Yet BHO will not release his transcripts. Why? Would it not be interesting to see his thesis? That might tell how he thinks. You go ahead and tear down the plenty of highly qualified candidates and back BHO.

          Until the 1970’s the editors were picked on the basis of grades, and the president of the Law Review was the student with the highest academic rank. Among these were Elliot L. Richardson, the former Attorney General, and Irwin Griswold, a dean of the Harvard Law School and Solicitor General under Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon.

          That system came under attack in the 1970’s and was replaced by a program in which about half the editors are chosen for their grades and the other half are chosen by fellow students after a special writing competition. The new system, disputed when it began, was meant to help insure that minority students became editors of The Law Review.

          Over the past decade, there have also been differences of opinion about the Review’s decision to change the method of choosing members of its Board through some sort of affirmative action, and by employing a writing competition as well as, or for some candidates in lieu of, academic grades. These changes, too, have been difficult, but any problems encountered have been resolved by the student editors themselves, though not without concern on the part of many who hold the Review in high esteem.

    Why is it that this discussion begs for Kathleen Parker’s opinion column from the Washington Post.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-palinization-of-the-gop/2011/11/18/gIQAd6gwZN_story.html

    Here’s a snippet – “It takes courage to swim against the tide of know-nothingness that has become de rigueur among the anti-elite, anti-intellectual Republican base. Call it the Palinization of the GOP, in which the least informed earns the loudest applause. The latest to this spectacle is Herman Cain, who has figured out how to turn his liabilities into assets. After fumbling for an answer during an editorial board meeting to a simple question about his position on Libya, a lead news item since February, Cain blamed ? who else? ? the media.”

    Just guessing that most of the responses will validate Parker’s position.

    Have fun.
