In the past few days President Barack Hussein Obama has shown a surprising ignorance of the U.S. Constitution to make it hard to fathom that he taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago. It also happens to be a fact that to this day this president has never released his college transcripts for the American people to make a judgment. I have a suspicion that the reason these transcripts have never been released is to protect the Obama-media created myth that he was a top student.
Perhaps he was just a below average student that benefitted from Affirmative Action and would totally explain his lack of knowledge today?
Let�s settle the issue once and for all. Mr. President, release your records now.
Power Line I�m grateful for the favor Obama did for us yesterday of exposing his extreme constitutional ignorance, with his comments on how it would be �unprecedented� for the Court to strike down a law passed by a �strong majority� in Congress. (As if a House margin of seven votes is a �strong� majority.) True, he walked back the comment today, but surely because his statement was not merely indefensible but outright embarrassing to his media defenders.
I�ve been growing weary of hearing people mention that he�s a �constitutional scholar,� since he never published a single thing on the subject either as editor of the Harvard Law Review or as a member of the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School. But hey�he taught constitutional law, didn�t he?
His course on constitutional law, one of several constitutional law courses on the U of C curriculum, dealt exclusively with the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment�the favorite, all-purpose clause for liberal jurists to use to right wrongs and make us more equal by judicial fiat. There is no evidence that Obama ever taught courses that considered other aspects of constitutionalism, such as executive power, the separation of powers, the Commerce Clause, or judicial review itself.
Obama releasing his transcripts needs to be a Super Pac Ad. Hint, hint!
