    How exactly did Barack Obama pay for his Harvard Law School education?

    The way the Obama campaign has answered the question was simply hard work and student loans.

    But new questions have been raised about Obama’s student loans and Obama’s ties to a radical Muslim activist who reportedly was raising money for Obama’s Harvard studies during the years 1988 to 1991.

    The allegations first surfaced in late March, when former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton told a New York cable channel that a former business partner who was “raising money” for Obama had approached him in 1988 to help Obama get into Harvard Law School.

    I love it... if Obama were friends with Percy Sutton, you'd be spamming the board with threads about his relationship to Malcolm X's lawyer.....

    Does the McCain campaign pay you for this stuff?

    That's actually pretty interesting. Not that I believe it was funded by a Muslim, but how DID he pay for Harvard? Student loans and pell grants only cover so much (it wouldn't even pay $25,000 a year NOW, much less 20 years ago).

    :eusa_boohoo:Spare me. After what Governor Palin and her family have been through surely you can't be serious. Not to mention the cheap shots on McCain's homes and cars.

    Who gives a rat's ass?

    George Bush blows 4,000 American lives and $700 billion dollars on Iran, and Phil Gramm causes the destruction of our financial system with derivatives, and all you can talk about is Obama's Harvard scholarship?

    You really need to take a cold, hard look at yourself.

    The question is not how the loans were paid off it's who loaned him the money to begin with.

    A distinguished black New York politician, who is an Obama supporter, is the one who made the statement in question. Read the article. What are you afraid of?
