Obama has embellished his resume
Are attorneys Barack and Michelle Obama currently licensed to practice law?
Was Barack Obama ever a professor of constitutional law at the University of Chicago?
In recent days, these questions have once again gone viral on the Internet.
WND has traced the current controversy to Doug Ross and a March 1 posting on his DirectorBlue.blogspot.com asserting the Obamas are no longer lawyers registered to practice law in Illinois and that claims President Obama was a professor of constitutional law at the University of Chicago are “a sham.”
This current round of the controversy harkens back to the 2008 presidential campaign when Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton made nearly the same charges in a March 25, 2008, “Hillary for President” press release entitled “Just Embellished Words: Senator Obama’s Record of Exaggerations & Misstatements.”
After stating Barack Obama was not a law professor at the University of Chicago, the Clinton press release insisted: “He (Barack Obama) is a senior lecturer (now on leave) at the school. In academia, there’s a vast difference between the two titles. Details matter. Professors have tenure while lecturers do not.”
