    I find it interesting considering that Obama attended some fancy schools on his own, but I guess that is different...:)

    And he had the student loans to prove it until very recently.

    Yup.

    well, the president worked for it. romney went on daddy's dime.

    but did you have the same interest when romney said that the president "spent too much time at harvard" when he went to the same school?

    didn't think so...

    student loans/pell grants/scholarships/work-study... there were lots of ways to pay for school then.

    think his daddy paid for it?

    Rather than wonder how obama paid for college, a better point to ponder is how he got in and how did he graduate?

    In his own words he was lazy and never got beyond mediocre grades. Since when did mediocre grades get a student into Harvard.

    For that matter, how the HELL did he get to be editor of the Harvard Law Review. He's the only one to have ever been editor of the HLR without publishing a paper of his own. To this very day he's never published a legal analysis. He was editor for only one year and that year is the least cited in HLR history!

    he was top 10% of his law school class or he wouldn't have been on law review.

    what's to wonder about?

    Obama made it clear that he got help, as did Michelle.
