    The neat thing about the president being a lawyer by profession, is that if the secessionists get enough signatures on this White House (!?!) petition, they'll get some free legal advice. Then the president can tell them to either petition Congress (the legal way) or their state government (the cool way).

  • Where/when was his practice in law  [ Thu Nov 15 2012 8:46 PM ]

    Is the President actually a lawyer by profession??? Yes, he went to the Harvard Law School, but did he establish a practice or engage in taking legal cases. We know he was a "community agitator" and affiliated with the corrupt group Acorn, but that's hardly a professional career. Just askin'

    Just like everyone else's life, it's more complicated than that but yeah, he's worked at a law firm. I was actually thinking of his academic lawyering, though. I try to picture him as patiently schooling morons who don't know how to secede or even have a basic grasp of just what their relationship of with the federal government is. But all my visions of that fail and are replaced with him being a smartass and having fun with them.

    I'm not a big Obama fan (never voted for him) but I love the idea of Republicans trying to play lawyer or civics against him, where they risk having all their pretenses of conservatism exposed. It just seems like of all the things the election-losers should be doing, bringing up the issues involved with secession (even if it's not serious), and asking for a response from this president, with this particular education and set of skills, has got to be one of the dumbest moves possible. It almost makes me wonder if these petitions were started by Democratic party strategists so they'd have a strawman to talk about. ;-)

    It's like discussing cocaine with Bush2, getting into an argument about blowjobs with Clinton, debating surveillance strategies with Bush1, etc. Know what I mean?

  • Thanks for admitting you are wrong  [ Sat Nov 17 2012 10:53 PM ]

    OK, so you are abandoning your statement that BO was a "lawyer by profession". Thank-you, that's all that I asked. The rest of your comments were fluff to disguise your original mis-statement. Actually I have to give you credit; most people don't admit they mis-spoke.

    Secession is obviously a symbolic gesture and most States weighed in, FWIW. This Country is nearly at a civil war. So much for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    I was a disenfranchised voter in Rio Rancho, and I promise that I'm one angry citizen. There are thousands here, in the same frame of mind. I looked forward to voting this election more than any other, and we blame the Democratic machine. They even managed to vote in another Dem to County Clerk for Sandoval County, replacing the corrupt previous mannequin, mainly because they suppressed the RR vote.

    And finally. BO is not the intellect you think he is. I see nothing but bumper stickers when he speaks. And he fakes this 'tude that, if you disagree with his policies, then you are against everything good in the World. his emperor complex is like a Cardinal personality trait in Psychology circles.

    Regards

    Mike
