Barack Obama Vindicated Again

An interesting piece in Politico.com regarding Barack Obama. It appears Team Hillary is still trying to find something to stick on Barack Obama. Don't they understand that this brother has clean hands? Why are the folks at Team Hillary trying all of this underhanded garbage? Why don't they just concede? Now they want to bring up some garbage about his status as a University professor to be questioned. In an article titled Obama vindicated on law-school title Politico's Ben Smith writes:

As the first in a bill of particulars titled "Just Embellished Words: Senator Obama’s Record of Exaggerations & Misstatements," the Clinton campaign charged earlier this week: "Sen. Obama consistently and falsely claims that he was a law professor. The Sun-Times reported that, 'Several direct-mail pieces issued for Obama's primary [Senate] campaign said he was a law professor at the University of Chicago. He is not. He is a senior lecturer (now on leave) at the school. In academia, there is a vast difference between the two titles. Details matter.' In academia, there's a significant difference: professors have tenure while lecturers do not. [Hotline Blog, 4/9/07; Chicago Sun-Times, 8/8/04]."

But the University of Chicago Law School has now posted a statement declaring his claims semantically sound: "The Law School has received many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as 'Senior Lecturer.' From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. Read More HERE

Here is a big shout out to Jack Turner :-) at jack and Jill Politics for a link to a great Slam Poet artist.

Of course a big shout out to brotha Darian Dauchan for the political comic relief and ThatPoshGirl for the link as well. Brotha Dauchan says many of the things I would like to say, but don't know how to say about Obama. I guess as an artist he says it better. So check this brotha out. Thanks Jack!
