NYTimes reports: The young law professor (Obama) stood apart in too many ways to count. At a school where economic analysis was all the rage, he taught rights, race and gender.
YES; rights, race and gender!
His most traditional course was in the due process and equal protection areas of constitutional law. His voting rights class traced the evolution of election law, from the disenfranchisement of blacks to contemporary debates over districting and campaign finance. …His most original course, a historical and political seminar as much as a legal one, was on racism and law…
Obama did not specialize in the Constitution. Obama cared about and taught only one subject: race.
A former colleague of Obama’s at the University of Chicago Law School finally spoke out about Obama:
The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool,” the tenured professor said of Obama, according to The Conservative Tribune.
Obama’s former colleague also explained that Obama was probably not the brightest faculty member at Chicago Law while he was there — in fact, he wasn’t even close, despite all his vaunted intellectualism.
Does his words surprise you?
