You're looking for mysteries where there are none Carol. Barack Obama was one of many college grads who spent time looking for work after graduating. His stint at the Developing Communities Project, run under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago was an important stepping stone for him. Schools like Harvard Law often look beyond grades and often weigh actual experience into the mix.
Obama worked with actual people and tried to make their communities stronger and encouraged the younger residents to better themselves. There's nothing wrong with that.
There's nothing wrong with that in and of itself. But a leader of the nation has to have experience leading, governing or serving enough time in Congress to know how to get things done with tact in reaching across the aisle.

Obama was in over his head from the get go. He led with the same academic disconnect in the same ivory tower he felt most comfortable most of his adult life.

He simply cannot relate to hardworking Americans who only want to make an honest living to get by or get ahead but, rather, connects with people who look to the government for their sustenance and has self-appointed himself as their leader, their voice and their savior while the rest of us have to pay the price and hope for the best.

There is no such thing as "fairness across the board" in any society. Europe and other failed socialist democracies should have made that obvious.

He is insulated and surrounds himself by fellow radicals and elitists who are also disconnected from most Americans who are not either.

In short, Obama is not a leader. He had an agenda and force fed it to the rest of us. He has demonized and ignored those who represent the other half of the population.

You can't possibly say and be honest that is a sign of leadership.

When any candidate running for office wins three times in a row unopposed because of suspiciously nefarious tactics or "scandals" that force their opponents to drop out, your assumption is just the opposite.

Obama and his handlers threw the book at them - apparently Hillary too.

You always cease to amaze. I'll bet you're one of those famous "Wal-Mart Shoppers" we see pictures of all the time. You're the 250 pounder pushing a cart full of Doritos and Keystone Light, with pink hair, black expandex tights, and wearing a way too small T-shirt that says "Bargoyle" across the front.

You get accepted based on your academics.
Scholarships are based on both need and academics. My daughter received scholarships awarded prior to any applications for financial aid. These were based on her HS record.
Minorities get accepted for breathing.

Some crummy schools will offer financial aid based on academics to attract a few students who can actually read, but Ivy league financial aid is based solely on need.

Sorry your daughter went to a third-rate school.

The possession of a joint or a small amount of marijuana is not an arrestable offense in my opinion.
But if not buckling up is dangerous, texting is even more dangerous.
It seems contradictory to me that you don't want the police to harrass the public - and I agree - but you don't mind the federal government getting right in our faces and being "all up in that". So to speak.
Are you referring to Obamacare?
Yes seat belts are important, texting is bad; however, when you give the police more ways to harrass people, they will do it and once you give them that power, it's hard to take it back. Did you read that there's going to be a police hotline wherein people can call and say, "hey, my neighbor down the street is acting funny" and the police will go to the persons house? What a nightmare.
This was a Republican idea.
When I see people texting; it's more often than not a young mother in a big SUV with children in the back, I don't get why people have to be on phones all the time. You see it everywhere, children are being ignored at doctors offices, beaches, malls, stores, carwashes; the parents are texting or playing words with friends and their kids are running rampant. I can't imagine what the repercussions of these out of touch parents will be to the future.

HEY STUPID! Wal-Mart destroys more jobs when they come into a community than they provide. The jobs they provide are so low paying that their employees have to apply for supplemental assistance and food stamps.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages force employees to need approximately $420,000 per year, per store, totaling $2.66 BILLION annually in food stamps and other taxpayer assistance…to survive.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost the country HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars in payroll tax deductions for Federal, State, and Local taxes.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost our communities the ability to hire and retain important public service workers like firefighters, police officers, maintenance workers, and teachers.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost our communities with their increased need for those same public services they are underfunding.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages and lack of covered benefits cost taxpayers over $1.02 BILLION a year in healthcare costs.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers as much as $225 MILLION in free and reduced price lunches for school-age children. Not the employer's problem. They can get a second job.
• Wal-Mart's intentionally low wages cost taxpayers over $780 MILLION in tax deductions for low-income families.
You're an idiot Jimmy!
No they don't. Not the employer's problem. They can get a second job. Not the employer's problem. HAHAHAHAHA!!! That's a lie! Not an employer's problem. Not an employer's problem. You're out your mind. But still not an employer's problem. People are responsible for themselves and family. No one else.

No one said politics wasn't a dirty game, it's not for the faint at heart. Anyone who decides to get in the game has to face the consequences, there are no more secrets anymore. That guy was a sleazeball and his wife had it in for him. Can't say I blame her.
Remember when the Bush's went after McCain? Calling his adopted daughter his brown love child? Exposed his wifes drug addiction?
Look at what the Mellon Scaife machine did to Bill Clinton? dogged him for years and years. Oddly enough Mellon Scaife himself was involved in a marital scandal, a tawdry affair at sleazy motels.

HOUSTON (The Borowitz Report)—National Rifle Association C.E.O. Wayne LaPierre used his opening speech at the N.R.A.’s national convention today to highlight several challenges facing the organization, including what he called “the rising cost of Senators.”
“Over the past few years, we’ve seen the price of purchasing a Senator surge astronomically,” he told the N.R.A. faithful.“Unless something is done to make Senators more affordable, the ability of a tiny lobbying group to overrule the wishes of ninety per cent of the American people will be in jeopardy.”
The days are over, he said, when “you could buy a Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for little more than pocket change.”
“Now it costs thousands to purchase a marginally effective Senator like Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.),” he said.
Mr. LaPierre was followed at the podium by the former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, the rock musician Ted Nugent, and several other people who would not pass background checks.
The Borowitz Report is just as accurate as ABC, NBC, or CBS.

John Galt, "About time that federal drones felt the pain of the rest of America." Too bad if you are too hypocritical and ashamed of your Ayn Randism cult religion to agree that the biggest 'federal drones on the public till: American corporations. U S fossil Fuel corporations should have to equally suffer the pains of the sequestration too. "Nearly one-third of these profits were used to repurchase companies’ stock, which only serves to pad the pockets of senior executives and the largest shareholders. The big five oil companies are also sitting on $82 billion in cash reserves, according to reports from the Securities and Exchange Commission for each company. While making these huge profits, BP and Exxon are the culprits in ongoing major oil disasters that are affecting the Gulf Coast and Arkansas." " Big Oil argues that it needs these tax breaks for oil exploration and development. Yet the big five oil companies produced 2 percent less oil in the first quarter of 2013, according to their recent financial statements, compared to the same time last year. These companies each have several hundred idle offshore leases that could produce oil if they were to be developed, according to an analysis for Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA). Instead, these companies leave the leases undeveloped while sitting on billions of dollars of cash reserves."Check this out: http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/green/... It looks like Ayn Rand's maxim 'Greed is good' is ruining the country, making climate change worse, and destroying our children's future. Hedrick Smith makes a powerful argument that when American corporations shifted from 'stakeholder capitalism' that presupposed a shared democratic social contract to 'stock option capitalism' based on a infinite growth plutocracy ethos America declined as a democratic republic superpower.
