Funny how TIME was able to find out so much about Paul's college days, but the college days of Barak Obama remain a complete mystery, grades and all.
Maybe because the web hadn't been invented when Obama was in college.
So only information occurring after the invention of the internet is available on the internet?
Colleges didn't keep records before the advent of the internet?
No other sources of information exist outside the internet?
You have such a strange thought process.
Dont you know? Obama is "The Anointed One". He does no wrong. He is incapable of it.
And if he DOES do something wrong, well...it doesnt count.
Why? because....the liberal press says so.
See? Its so simple. :tonofbricks:
I guess it's President Obama's fault that Rand Paul might have been a crazy dope-head during his college days.
Rand Paul's college days are of no interest to me , until he runs for an office I vote on.
Obama is the President. His college days should be of great interest to all of us, but remain a mystery. By design, I believe.
Junkie. That's where I'd been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man. Except the highs hadn't been about me trying to prove what a down brother I was. Not by then, anyway. I got high for just the opposite effect, something that could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory. I had discovered that it didn't make any difference whether you smoked reefer in the white classmate's sparkling new van, or in the dorm room of some brother you'd met down at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl. You might just be bored, or alone. Everybody was welcome into the club of disaffection. And if the high didn't solve whatever it was that was getting you down, it could at least help you laugh at the world's ongoing folly and see through all the hypocrisy and bullshit and cheap moralism.

Sorry, I thought this thread was about Rand Paul.
Well, it was you that suggested that Obama may be responsible for Rand Paul's drug experimentation.
I doubt that the two of them even knew each other in college - let alone partied together.
But I can see why you may suspect it though - given Obama's self confessed history of drug use.
Brother, you know this isn't true. I was using hyperbole. I apologize for assuming you had the ability to see this.
At least be truthful, don't lie!
What's the matter?
No sense of humor?
I find it so funny that some people on this board are so quick to call others liars. :laugh:
But we are supposed to believe that it is Conservatives that "hate".
Actually , it's about how ill advised it is for you to throw rocks when you live in a glass house.
Rand Paul's college days don't matter. Obama's do. Yet the press only publishes what doesn't matter and gives your messiah a pass.
The sad part is that you lap it up.
How can Rand Paul's college antics not matter, yet the antics of Obama do matter? Granted, they matter much more in KY where Rand is running.
I, too, for curiousity have wondered about Obama's college financing, grades, transcripts, etc., and even many of my Democrat friends are astounded at the lack of widespread knowledge (compared to Clinton and Bush). I have always wondered why the GOP didn't make this an issue in the campaign, unless they didn't want Palin or McCain's college records an issue. I'd imagine McCain's might have been off limits since he went to Annapolis (military records).
If I recall correctly, McCain was as big a mess up as JFK. JFK had Joe and the democrats to help him out and I believe McCain's day was an Admiral. If again I recall correctly McCain got all over Billy Cunningham for ask questions about BHO past and calling him by his middle name.
People were aksing about Obama's college transcripts and such - but the mainstream media was so in the tank for Obama that they pretended that it didn't matter.
McCain was too busy trying to prove what a nice guy he is and was too sensitive to the liberal characterization of Repulicans as big meanies - so he came out and told everyone to play nice - instead of asking for Obama's records.
Obama's records still have not been released.
Why not? What is there to hide?
And you know about McCain mess up, how? McCain's dad was an admiral. It may have helped get him into Annapolis, but it didn't and couldn't keep him there. It would not have saved him from washing out of flight school.
Is there a big problem with a father - JFK's or McCain's - helping their son? And what does this have to do with Rand Paul?
It may matter to the people of Kentucky. Doesn't matter to me at all.
Obama occupies the most powerful office in the land and has the power to affect all our lives. Paul doesn't and won't. So why don't we know anything about Obama's college "antics"?
Pretty simple, I would think.
I recall reading about him after he was freed from Vietnam. Also had a friend who went through flight school at the same time as he did in Texas, who said much about him, not very good. Also when he ran for senator the first time some came up about him. Just look at the amount of planes he crashed. Read his own book, it give a lot of it. Here is a little from the paper, I'm sure if you want you can find much on a search deal.
No, not as long as they aren't getting special privilege that other people can't get or if others are being hurt by the actions.
Tom Vol had said,"I have always wondered why the GOP didn't make this an issue in the campaign, unless they didn't want Palin or McCain's college records an issue. I'd imagine McCain's might have been off limits since he went to Annapolis (military records)."
A light went off in my head of what I had heard in the past and read, Tom might have been onto something.
Any chance that McCain matured while a "guest" of the Viet Cong?
Given the evidence of his good character throughout that experience - I'm not sure what difference his college years make.
