It was, by his own admission.


It does make a mockery of his Law Degree. and the fact that he was a Constitutional Law professor. Most likely he would not have been elected to the Harvard Law Review if they knew he had so little respect for the law at that time.

Yes I'm sure all past and present members of the Harvard Law Review are as pure as the driven snow. As are all people with law degrees and all law professors.

In the 1970s and 1980s many people were doing hard time for use and especially repeated use of pot.

Yes, there are decriminalization laws now.

When people take an oath to uphold the laws they really can not pick and choose.

What oath had Obama taken as a high school or college student? I highly doubt the guy was planning a run for POTUS at 18.

I already threw a vote at him.

and I may do it again in 2012.

I lived through the 70s and 80s and remember what would have ended careers (in certain fields) if the information got out.
Most of my friends that were users knew they were forfeiting jobs in law enforcement, government, and other fields.

Unless they lied about their activities, and were not found out.

Anti-gay bigot religious leader to give invocation.

politcs, as usual

( I guess it is a good move )

Pro-Life Rick Warren to Give Invocation at Obama Inauguration
December 17, 2008


Pro-life pastor Rick Warren will give the invocation at President-Elect Barack Obama’s inauguration. It makes a whole lot of sense. Even though Warren and Obama disagree on the life issue, they do see eye to eye on many social justice issues. This move is also classic Obama because it is a signal to religious conservatives that he’s willing to bring in both sides to the faith discussion in this country. Obama has never shied away from that.

I know quite a few attorneys and some judges that are in Obama's and my age group, that is the point here,
not to mention that cocaine use, also admitted, was a very serious crime with mandatory jail time. (in the 70s and 80s).


So please explain what law students in 2008, have to do with this?

I just think it's hilarious that you're setting up the law degree as some paragon of virtue. As if law students don't do drugs, don't cheat on exams, don't hand in plagiarized papers, don't apply for jobs with fake grades and degrees, etc?

If Obama is making a mockery of his law degree, then he's fitting right in with how things have always been. And I bet you anything that I still know more lawyers of his era than you do and I don't think he's unique among them either.

But I suppose it's nice that suddenly the law degree seems to imply some kind of special morality that the public has NEVER afforded the profession, LOL!

Cocaine is to lawyers as steroids are to bodybuilders.
