Barry in his own words

Posted by: Barthélemy Barbancourt

Tagged in: Untagged 

Team Obama did an amazing job of hiding Barry Sotero's past. Here we have a rare example of Obama's writing. As I assumed, Obama is not a good writer. This is from his days as the editor of the Harvard Law review.

Once all the writing competition submissions have been graded, these scores, as well as the law school transcripts of all those who have chosen to release the, are submitted to a Selection Committee made up of the President ad two other Review editors who have been elected by their fellow editors.

No editors on the Review will ever know whether any given editor was selected on the basis of grades, writing competition, or affirmative action, and no editors who were selected with affirmative action in mind.

I must say, however, that as someone who has undoubtedly benefited from affirmative action programs during my academic career, and as someone who may have benefited from the Law Review's affirmative action policy when I was selected to join the Review last year, I have not personally felt stigmatized either within the broader law school community or as a staff member of the Review. Indeed, my election last year as President of the Review would seem to indicate that at least among Review staff, and hopefully for the majority of professors at Harvard, affirmative action in no way tarnishes the accomplishments of those who are members of historically underrepresented groups.

So, along with the poor grammar and missing punctuation, we have the admission that Obama truly is our first Affirmative Action President.

WTF?

Is this for real? I gotta go do some research.

Nobody, I was sure I would check the link and find that it headed straight to the Harvard Lampoon or The Onion, but no, it really looks legit. I am convinced it is for real by reading the last bumbling paragraph by this Community Organizer in Chief:


"I would therefore agree with the suggestion that in the future, our concern in this area ia [sic] most appropriately directed at any employer who would even insinuate that someone with Mr. Chen's extraordinary record of academic success might be somehow unqualified for work in a corporate law firm, or that such success might be somehow undeserved. Such attributes speak less to the merits or problems of affirmative action policies, and more to the tragically deep-rooted ignorance and bias that exists in the legal community and our society at large."

I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere he admits to spitting into someone's soup while employed as a waiter. He's had this chip on his shoulder to get back at Whitey for a long, long time- and the last 2.5 years have been his big chance for epic payback. Would it be racist to suggest that Americans bought a Pig in a Poke in 2008?

Is it any wonder that he is the a most unspectacular president when he has lead a most "Chauncey Gardner-esqe" life? He has been in the right place at the right time throughout his life. Sometimes intentionally and sometimes not.

In his state senate, as well as his US Senate campaigns, he was virtually unopposed after his competition took themselves out of the races. He met a formidable primary opponent, but a lackluster general election opponent in the POTUS race.

He has fumbled his way through his presidency as he has fumbled his way through life. He is affable, as all politicians and community organizers need to be. He presents himself and his family well, reads a teleprompter as well as anyone could, is an amazing facade of a leader, and, I believe, the best of what the Democrats represent. He is feel-good incarnate!

Woodrow, you've proven yourself a crackpot
written by jokin , August 30, 2011

Are you so obtuse that you are unable to realize that the jig is up, the facade has faded, the dream has died and hope can no longer be kept alive?

You use your typical lefty tactics, attack the messenger instead of dealing with the reality that your guy is an intellectual lightweight.


This tome was written while Barry was in his THIRD YEAR of Harvard Law School with Barry serving as President of the Law Review, the most prestigious Law Review in the country- a job description which basically consists of being IN CHARGE of all the other members of the Law Review- the other members, who are assigned to edit important current legal articles from around the world for syntax, spelling, grammar and factual accuracy.

I think this letter guarantees that Obama can't write, it's impossible to conceive that he wrote "Dreams of My Father" and he only got Law Review from AA, so there goes that NY Times stamp of approval for his apparent genius-level intelligence:

"Barack Obama, the junior senator from Illinois and the Democratic Party’s new rock star, is that rare politician who can actually write — and write movingly and genuinely about himself."

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/17/books/17kaku.html

The media's two main evidential talking points about Obama's alleged brilliance are now blasted to smithereens. What else will we find out as the onion is inevitably peeled back further?

Dirt Worshipping Heathens
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , August 30, 2011

That is an amazing piece of work. I have re-read it a few times and I stand by the core of what I wrote. I cranked that sucker out in about 20 minutes and posted it. It is a great example of stream of consciousness writing. It was never intended for publication in the Harvard Law Review. I have done no editting to the piece in the 4 years it has been up and I flows better than Barry's article in the HLR.

I added a note about "humanoid animals" as some of the perpetually offended set couldn't follow that with Beavers and bees being more industrious than Plains Indians,the line between man and Beast had become a bit blurry.

Can I edit my own work? No, not very well, few people can. My wife edits important personal documents and my clients have a variety of quality and technical people that review my work for errors. I get lots of corrections for spelling and punctuation, much less for actual content.

Barry is a poor writer, adding more fuel to the idea that he didn't write his books, Bill Ayers did. It also shows that Barry Sotero is probably not that complex. His writing is a simplistic regurgitation of liberal cliches and weak ones at that.

Dirt Worshipping Heathens is an original piece of work. Its "popularity" and endurance show that it resonated with people. I know that the local lefties just wanted to use it to bash other conservatives, but given the huge number of blogs out there and the splash this one post made, I'd say that DWH is a far more influential piece of work than Barry's Affirmative Action whine.

DWH made a splash alright similar to the one made when digested fois gras hits the old Kohler. It must be election season if people are coming out of the woodwork looking backward at President Obamas associations, grades, citizenship, etc I just did not expect it to begin so soon. Enjoy your research boys and I've given this advice before that the Republicans best chance for success ijn the 2012 election is to look forward and present a plan to the American people as to how they will go about improving the economy. Instead, the Conservative smear tactics will take over because campaign startegists say that their research shows that this will work just like it did in 2008. I hope you can come to terms with President Obama until 2016 because you are contributing to the result. Bernadine Dorn now anyone?? How about uncle DWI? Dig in boys!

Woody scoffed at this assertion as a crackpot non-starter...
written by jokin , August 30, 2011

i.e., the notion that an unrepentant terrorist, Bill Ayers, was more involved in Obama's life than just the thoroughly disproven notion that he was "just a guy from the neighborhood" (the only reason Ayers isn't serving a life sentence for conspiracy to commit murder is direct evidence being thrown out due to government misconduct).

"It must be election season if people are coming out of the woodwork looking backward at President Obamas associations, grades, citizenship, etc I just did not expect it to begin so soon."

WTH are you talking about? No one is "coming out of the woodwork", this is the vettting process which is inexorably being done by the Fifth Estate, because those in charge of actually doing the vetting, the Fourth Estate, were not simply lazy about doing their job, but actually actively obfuscated the truth about the mystery candidate.


"I hope you can come to terms with President Obama until 2016 because you are contributing to the result. Bernadine Dorn now anyone?? How about uncle DWI? Dig in boys!"

Correction, the next term would actually end in January, 2017. Elections are much more frequently decided by symbolic images of reality, than the reality of the issues themselves. Dukakis riding the tank, Bush 41 glancing at his watch and marveling at a grocery store price scanner, Nixon wiping the beads of sweat from his brow, Carter being attacked by a bunny-rabbit and the heli crash in Iran. Something symbolic is going to "stick" to Obama and decide the election, not some "Contract for America"-like GOP proposal.

Barts DWH piece was influencial because it rang true with a lot of people including me, the resident A-S DWH.

We need no mud slinging, just a view of results by PBO.

This stuff is the vetting that most candidates go through in the primaries. Barry had none of that. In fact outside of the ghost written books, Barry had no records or writings to check. Just Hope-n-change rhetoric and BS.
An un-curious media asked no questions, they just ran interference.
So now these things (associations, grades, past writings, etc) begin to trickle out. Now all Woody can do is whine that Barry is getting slimed by people posting Barry's deep thoughts that seem to be about as deep as a spilled beverage on my kitchen floor.

All this of course as the media have desended on Texas A&M to scrutinize Rick Perry's college writings and extracurricular activities. OMG he was a cheerleader and a dolt!! Ha Ha! Not smart like the former Law review editor.

" Sure, just like the media descended on Harvard to scrutinize Barack Obama. It happens on both sides Sequel so don't feel slighted."


This is the crux of your problem, Woody. There isn't supposed to be a "side" with objective journalism. This shouldn't be about playing Gotcha, this should be about disseminating as much information as possible- especially the information "they" have taken great pains to remain hidden- about those who aspire to be our elected leaders.

We're still waiting for the "media descent" on Harvard, Columbia, Occidental, the Annenberg Challenge, Social Security Office, political dirty tricks, the funding for Obama's education and international travel, criminal record, real estate transactions, Constitutional transgressions and Obama's known associations with terrorists, convicted criminals, admitted communists, revolutionaries, wealthy oligarchs and certifiable racists. Michelle has gotten a free ride too, namely on her: appalingly ignorant senior thesis, loss of her law license, questionable hiring and exorbitant raises in salary at law firms and hospitals, red-lining of certain impoverished patient care areas for the last hospital where she worked, exorbitant and never-ceasing vacations during near-Depression-like conditions in the economy...

Woody, if you could answer one question directly...
written by jokin , August 30, 2011

It might clear up a lot of the sturm and drang.

Does it bother you in the least that unlike every other President (and virtually every other high-to-mid-level government employee), Obama's records before he entered public office have been almost entirely sealed from public scrutiny?

OK One Follow-up- What would be his motivation to be so scrupulously opaque unless there are things that would be highly embarassing to his carefully crafted public image?

Nobody - I'd be curious to see his grades if you come up with them; seriously. However, I did not vote for the man based on his college transcript. I have never voted for a President based on his GPA. I voted for him because he appeared to better a better choice as President of the USA than Senator McCain and Ex-Governor Palin.

An compared to Rick Perry?
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , August 30, 2011

The left plans to use Rick Perry's grades against him, thus making Obama's grades relevant.

There is also the idea that Obama is intelligent. This has been pushed by the left and even accepted by many on the right, despite any evidence of intelligence. If we saw Obama's grades, we might have a bit more to go on. I'd gladly compare my SAT scores with Obama's.

Obama had no record of governance prior to the White House and it shows. Lacking a track record of success, like Rick Perry's, we often need to look for other clues about a person.

I could give a rats ass about Governor Perrys grades. What is he going to do to create jobs and improve the economy? If he gives me an answer I can believe in, I'm all ears.

I don't need to see your SAT's Bart but thanks for offering. I'm sure they are stellar!!

Time for another question you won't answer, Woodrow
written by jokin , August 30, 2011

I am still skeptical about Perry, but he has demonstrated that he has overseen state policies that have relatively immunized Texas from the greater country's economic ills. And this has been done in a multi-ethnic state that has historically been more prone to boom and bust cycles than the American economy as a whole. regarding Pery, I'm guessing you'll somehow find answers you CAN'T believe in.

Here's the question- With all extraneous factors being equal, would you feel more comfortable in a blind choice for important positiions that impact your life, with only one known fact, that being- did said person largely gain his position of authority through a government-mandated affirmative action program?

While it is obvious now that Obama became President under false pretenses, how about the teacher of your children, your banker, invesment advisor, lawyer, general contractor, hell, even your barber? If you are ever in the mood to confront yourself in an honest moment, I higly doubt that you would choose the person with inferior credentials.

Tort Reform!
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , August 30, 2011

Perry has a great record of shafting trial lawyers. His latest coup is that the plantiff pays in frivolous lawsuits. Also, Texas is a magnet for Doctors now.

"In the spring of 2003, the Texas Legislature passed medical liability reforms, subsequently approved by Texans via constitutional amendment.

Pre-reform, medical malpractice rates were rising 15-20 percent per year; post-reform, rates have fallen almost 40 percent. Texas Medical Liability Trust, the state’s largest medical malpractice insurance carrier, has reduced rates the last five years, with a cumulative 31 percent rate reduction and about $200 million in premium savings.

In May 2003, there were 35,723 in-state medical doctors. Today, there are 6,000 more. The number of doctors is up 52 percent in San Antonio, 51 percent in El Paso, and 46 percent in Houston. The backlog of applications at the Texas Board of Medical Examiners exceeds 2,500. Doctors view Texas as an attractive place to practice."

Perry became governor in 2000.

Thanks, Bart
written by jokin , August 30, 2011

this is more demonstrable encouragment for his canidacy and probably is why the media is going out of their way in early seek-and-destroy maneuvers immediately after Perry took the lead in the GOP polls.

I guess Perry's coziness with the TX State Dems is more a reflection on them willing to compromise towards his business-friendly solutions. This won't work with the Pelosi-Reid cabal and I don't want to see President Perry compromising in ways that always end up benefitting the Left.
