Barack Obama would be nothing without the slobbering left wing media, agree?
Time magazine gushed in 2008 about Barack Obama's 12-year tenure as a
law lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, saying, "Within a
few years, he had become a rock-star professor with hordes of devoted
FACT: In 1999, only 23 percent of the students
said they would repeat Obama's racism class. He was the
third-lowest-ranked lecturer at the law school that year. And in 2003,
only a third of the student evaluators recommended his classes. A spring
1994 class attracted 14 out of a student body of 600; a spring 1996
class drew 13.
Shortly after Barack Obama won the 2008
presidential election, Prairie State Blue, a liberal blog, attributed
his victory to the fact that Illinois' deeply entrenched government
corruption had forced "political reformers" in the state legislature
like Obama "to network outside the traditional political circles."

It would be impossible to call him a reformer."
Obama's carefully constructed image as a civil rights lawyer who wanted
to heal the black community was greeted with skepticism by some Chicago
FACT: Robert Fitch, a radical leftist and
freelance journalist who specialized in urban politics and economics,
said Obama surrounded himself with people who got rich on Chicago's $1.6
billion neighborhood demolition program known officially as the Plan
At least 25,000 low-income
apartments in Chicago were destroyed under the program, which forced
thousands of black families -- many of whom lived in Obama's state
Senate district -- to move out of the city. Obama's political allies
directed the effort.
"What we see is that the
Chicago core of the Obama coalition is made up of blacks who've moved up
