    Yes, we have a new oxymoron...

    Geo. W. Bush Library

     



     

    Drop "oxy" and we have you.

     



    No seriously. The guy is a complete failure. Lets face it. Dopey.

     

     




     

    Hey dummy, compared to Obama, Bush is Lincoln, Washington, Reagan, Einstein,Gates, and every brain surgeon and rocket scientist on earth COMBINED! 

     



    Tell the trustees of the Silverado S&L. His own mother once referred to him as "Not the smartest chip on the block". Let's not forget his C average in school, or how Cheney had him on a puppet string. Meanwhile, Obama, not born with a silver spoon, was Editor in Chief of the Harvard Law Review.

    Too funny. As you would say; BW...... Actually, never mind.

     

     




     

    Well, I would bring up Obama`s grades but, oh ya, we`ve NEVER seen them. 

    Nice swing and miss.

     



    Columbia, yes. But at Harvard he was magma c laude. Once again, a fictionalized response.

     

     

    It;s best if you stick with the "Bush is Lincoln, Washington, Reagan, Einstein,Gates" combined shtick.

     



    You are kidding right?  You have seen his grades and transcripts from Harvard?  Please............do tell?

    Here`s an interesting read:

     

    : The Vetting - Did Obama Have Lower SAT Scores Than George W. Bush? President Barack Obama is hailed by his supporters and the mainstream media as one of the most brilliant men ever to hold the office. However, his refusal to release his academic records, his admitted deficiencies as a student, and his frequent factual errors--even in his chosen field of constitutional law--have cast doubt upon his supposed genius. Now, Breitbart News has established that Obama's grades and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores may have been even lower than those of his supposedly less capable predecessor, George W. Bush.

    Breitbart News has learned that the transfer class that entered Columbia College in the fall of 1981 with Obama was one of the worst in recent memory, according to Columbia officials at the time.

    A Nov. 18, 1981 article in the Columbia Spectator, “Tight Housing Discourages Transfer Applications to CC,” written by student Jeremy Feldman and quoting admissions officials, reported: “On paper at least, the quality of the students accepted [as transfers] has declined along with the number of applicants, the officials say.”

    Feldman, quoting Robert Boatti, Assistant Dean of Admissions, as well as the late college Dean Arnold Collery, continued:

    Boatti also attributed the drop in transfer application to the College’s policy of requiring transfer students to take courses in its core curriculum and to the limited availability of financial aid for them.

    He added a “majority” of the transfers come here from college in the New York area. Many come from community colleges, rather than the nation’s top schools.

    “Even the unhappiest people don’t transfer from Harvard,” Boatti said.

    In grades and other indicators of academic performance, the crop of transfer applicants “doesn’t stand out the way they did before,” [Dean Arnold] Collery said.

    Boatti confirmed Collery’s observations.

    Among accepted transfer students, the average combined math and verbal score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test is a 1,100 and their grade-point average at their former schools is about 3.0, Boatti said.

    The freshman class at the College had a combined SAT score more than 100 points higher.

    Only 450 students applied to transfer to Columbia in 1981 and sixty-seven were admitted, according to the Columbia Spectator, compared to 650 applicants just four years before.

    If Obama’s SAT scores were near the average of the transfer students entering Columbia in the fall of 1981, he would have scored significantly lower than George W. Bush, whose combined math and verbal scores were 1206 out of a possible 1600 points (as revealed by the New Yorker in 1999).

    In his autobiography, Dreams from My Father, Barack Obama describes himself as an unfocused high school student whose mother scolded him for being a "loafer" (142). He describes his attitude toward his studies at Occidental as “indifferent” (146), calling himself a “bum” who abused drugs (138) and who was notorious for partying all weekend (165). 

    That has raised questions about how Obama earned a place at Columbia in 1981, paving the way to Harvard Law and beyond. Indeed, like much else in his biography, Obama seems to have fictionalized the process through which he gained admission to Columbia. Obama writes in Dreams: "[W]hen I heard about a transfer program that Occidental had arranged with Columbia University, I’d been quick to apply"(172). 

    However, there is no record of such a "transfer program" existing at either Columbia or Occidental.

    Breitbart News spoke to an official source at the Registrar’s Office of Occidental College, who confirmed that there has only been one transfer program between Occidental and Columbia--one that fed students into Columbia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science (known today as the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science). 

    Obama, who was not an engineering student, would not have been eligible for that program. 

    The official also pulled Occidental’s records between 1970 and 1990, and found no transfer program with any other Columbia University program.

    In addition, Breitbart News spoke with Phil Boerner, who transferred to Columbia from Occidental in 1981, and graduated from Columbia in 1984. He was Obama’s roommate in New York, and is one of the few Columbia students to recall Obama. Boerner, speaking by telephone, denied there was a “transfer program.”

    “You can transfer colleges at any time,” Boerner said, emphasizing that he was not speaking for Obama. “There was no formal arrangement between the two schools.”

    It is possible that Obama benefited from Columbia’s affirmative action program, which the university had recently defended in an amicus curie brief to the Supreme Court in the celebrated Bakke case (1977). Columbia joined several other elite universities in defending the use of race as a factor in college admissions. The brief had argued that “minority status must be considered independently of economic or cultural deprivation.”

    Given that 1981 turned out to be a relatively easy year to enter Columbia as a transfer student, and the fact that Obama was applying as a transfer student from a private college in California, as well as a minority student, Obama likely would have stood out among applicants, regardless of his scores and grades.

    Yet because Obama has never released his academic records, it is impossible to know whether he would have qualified for admission as a first-year student or in a typical transfer year. 

    The only way to know is for Obama to release his records, transcripts and test scores--from Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard. Why Obama has not done so remains a mystery--unless he has something else to hide.

     

     



    U realize, of course this is a wingnut site who ADMITS they're not mainstream. Since most of us have had our youthful indiscretions (For example, the Great Ronald Reagan smoked weed & supposedly committed date rape, not to mention his bad memory regarding Iran-Contra; JFK was no angel either, bedding practically every hottie in sight, amongst other things, some, like his father,  supposedly quite corrupt, including stealing the '60 election thanks to his monster Dad), and since it is likely he benefited from Affirmative Action programs,  I'm sure some of this is true. However, since W Bush was supposedly a young coke head & middle aged alcoholic, I can just imagine the field day this twisted site would have had if he was a Dem.This is probably why you hid the link. BTW, good job ignoring the other details of my posts. This is called NOT knowing how to debate; or worse, losing it.

    I want to debate you but I`m too busy laughing out loud at your link.  Here is a direct quote from the BLOG you posted, written by an unknown BLOGGER:

    "A reader forwarded me an email from the Harvard Law School News Coordinator, Emily Dupraz, confirming that Obama graduated magna cu m laude. "

    Now that is LOL funny!  There is no where to find Obama`s grades or transcripts.  They have never been released.  True, he doesn`t have to release them, no president does.  Yes, Breitbart was a right-wing guy.  His article however quotes the Columbia Dean of Admissions, The Registrars office at Occidental, and Obama`s very own autobigraphy (which I read and maybe you should too).  Did you even read the article I posted you in full and out of kindness so you didn`t have to go to a link, as opposed to your insane accusation that I would hide it.

    Now, please refresh my memory.............what were the "other details" of your post that I "ignored'?

    Was it more lies, insanity, and, um........BLOGs?   LOL!

     



    Yes, I read your brilliant article. Also, magma c laude means you have at least a 3.5 GPA, poindexter. And a slanted article would always collate disparate facts, with some unsubstantiated or just plain made up stuff, in a twisted way to support their argument. As far as glossing over, there's the Bush stuff, duh.

     BTW, when do you expect a Republican to get into the WH? You better hope those fake conservative congressional gerrymandered wingnuts keep their nutjob mouths shut to even have a chance. Lately, that hasn't been happening. (Keeping their mouths shut)

    Enjoy your fiction.

    Thanks for reading the article.  Sorry you don`t have comprehension skills.  What don`t you get about a BLOGGER saying "Obama graduated magna" meaning nothing and having ZERO credibility?  Obama`s grades and transcripts have NEVER been released.  Why can`t you understand that your dog with a blog has never seen them, doesn`t have them, and is writing left-wing opinion doo-doo?

    Nice try at changing the subject.  I don`t know when a Republican sees the WH again.  I thought Romney should have won handily in November.  I was wrong.  We have a very dumb, ill informed, and easliy distracted electorate.  Do I think a guy like Rubio could win.......yes.  My guess is the Rep candidate for 2016 is someone we least expect and nobody that`s being discussed today.

     



    No, this was one of the talking points you ignored earlier. I would have no need to change the subject, since anyone claiming that Bush is hands down smarter and more competent than Obama would not be taken seriously by a super majority almost as compelling as the Senate rejected Gun Control provisions.

    As far as Rubio is concerned. he's probably the leading nominee at the moment. For his sake, it would be imperative that his campaign can control the knuckleheads in the party.

He was Obama’s roommate in New York, and is one of the few Columbia students to recall Obama. Boerner, speaking by telephone, denied there was a “transfer program.”

    “You can transfer colleges at any time,” Boerner said, emphasizing that he was not speaking for Obama. “There was no formal arrangement between the two schools.”

    It is possible that Obama benefited from Columbia’s affirmative action program, which the university had recently defended in an amicus curie brief to the Supreme Court in the celebrated Bakke case (1977). Columbia joined several other elite universities in defending the use of race as a factor in college admissions. The brief had argued that “minority status must be considered independently of economic or cultural deprivation.”

    Given that 1981 turned out to be a relatively easy year to enter Columbia as a transfer student, and the fact that Obama was applying as a transfer student from a private college in California, as well as a minority student, Obama likely would have stood out among applicants, regardless of his scores and grades.

    Yet because Obama has never released his academic records, it is impossible to know whether he would have qualified for admission as a first-year student or in a typical transfer year. 

    The only way to know is for Obama to release his records, transcripts and test scores--from Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard. Why Obama has not done so remains a mystery--unless he has something else to hide.

     

     



    U realize, of course this is a wingnut site who ADMITS they're not mainstream. Since most of us have had our youthful indiscretions (For example, the Great Ronald Reagan smoked weed & supposedly committed date rape, not to mention his bad memory regarding Iran-Contra; JFK was no angel either, bedding practically every hottie in sight, amongst other things, some, like his father,  supposedly quite corrupt, including stealing the '60 election thanks to his monster Dad), and since it is likely he benefited from Affirmative Action programs,  I'm sure some of this is true. However, since W Bush was supposedly a young coke head & middle aged alcoholic, I can just imagine the field day this twisted site would have had if he was a Dem.This is probably why you hid the link. BTW, good job ignoring the other details of my posts. This is called NOT knowing how to debate; or worse, losing it.

     

     


    (QUOTE)

     

    I want to debate you but I`m too busy laughing out loud at your link.  Here is a direct quote from the BLOG you posted, written by an unknown BLOGGER:

    "A reader forwarded me an email from the Harvard Law School News Coordinator, Emily Dupraz, confirming that Obama graduated magna cu m laude. "

    Now that is LOL funny!  There is no where to find Obama`s grades or transcripts.  They have never been released.  True, he doesn`t have to release them, no president does.  Yes, Breitbart was a right-wing guy.  His article however quotes the Columbia Dean of Admissions, The Registrars office at Occidental, and Obama`s very own autobigraphy (which I read and maybe you should too).  Did you even read the article I posted you in full and out of kindness so you didn`t have to go to a link, as opposed to your insane accusation that I would hide it.

    Now, please refresh my memory.............what were the "other details" of your post that I "ignored'?

    Was it more lies, insanity, and, um........BLOGs?   LOL!

     



    Yes, I read your brilliant article. Also, magma c laude means you have at least a 3.5 GPA, poindexter. And a slanted article would always collate disparate facts, with some unsubstantiated or just plain made up stuff, in a twisted way to support their argument. As far as glossing over, there's the Bush stuff, duh.

     BTW, when do you expect a Republican to get into the WH? You better hope those fake conservative congressional gerrymandered wingnuts keep their nutjob mouths shut to even have a chance. Lately, that hasn't been happening. (Keeping their mouths shut)

    Enjoy your fiction. 

     

    (QUOTE)


     

    Thanks for reading the article.  Sorry you don`t have comprehension skills.  What don`t you get about a BLOGGER saying "Obama graduated magna" meaning nothing and having ZERO credibility?  Obama`s grades and transcripts have NEVER been released.  Why can`t you understand that your dog with a blog has never seen them, doesn`t have them, and is writing left-wing opinion doo-doo?

    Nice try at changing the subject.  I don`t know when a Republican sees the WH again.  I thought Romney should have won handily in November.  I was wrong.  We have a very dumb, ill informed, and easliy distracted electorate.  Do I think a guy like Rubio could win.......yes.  My guess is the Rep candidate for 2016 is someone we least expect and nobody that`s being discussed today.

     



    No, this was one of the talking points you ignored earlier. I would have no need to change the subject, since anyone claiming that Bush is hands down smarter and more competent than Obama would not be taken seriously by a super majority almost as compelling as the Senate rejected Gun Control provisions.

    As far as Rubio is concerned. he's probably the leading nominee at the moment. For his sake, it would be imperative that his campaign can control the knuckleheads in the party.

     

     




     

    If after 4 1/2 years of the worst president America has ever had, a complete disaster, everything worse than it was on January 20th 2009, and you and your ilk thinking Obama is smarter than Bush...........well, you need your head examined and you shouldn`t be allowed to vote.

    Bush is Einstein compared to this dope.

     



    More school yard fiction, mixed in with the Wingnut fantasy of mass disenfranchisement. You've met expectations.

    The C-SPAN Survey of Presidential Leadership consists of rankings from a group of presidential historians and "professional observers of the presidency"[13] who ranked presidents in a number of categories initially in 2000 and more recently in 2009.[14][15] With some minor variation, both surveys found that historians consider Abraham LincolnGeorge Washington, and Franklin D. Roosevelt the three best presidents by a wide margin and William Henry Harrison (to a lesser extent), Warren G. HardingAndrew JohnsonFranklin PierceGeorge W. Bush and James Buchanan the worst.


    Ouch, that's gotta hurt the bigdog. Kinda feel bad for the little guy.

    No, I don't think the attack is Obama's fault. If the Boston bombing proves anything it's that anyone at anytime can pull off an attack. It's impossible to prevent everything from happening.
