    I'm a veteran of the 3d Battalion 16th Field Artillery, 8th Infantry Division. I worked first as an 82C (forward observer) then I worked in Military Intelligence where I received the Army Commendation Medal.
    I attended Roosevelt University on the GI bill and I have been designing labratory testing equipment for the last 15 years. I have three patents and one piece of equipment I designed is used by companies all over he world to test and rate the flammability of plastics.

    The first time Bush ran I voted for him. During his administration, time and time again, he attempted to force scientists to change their data to match administration policies. This is well documented. Top government scientists quit.

    Even Kathleen Parker, Chicago Tribune conservative columnist, a hardcore Republican for many years, now refers to the Republican Party as the Confederate Party.

    Anyway, this is my first post. Let's see what shows up.

    The last election, I voted for Obama. Education is very important to me since I worked so hard for my own. John McCain graduated 5th from the bottom out of 899 cadets. I couldn't vote for someone with such poor academic credentials. Palin was worse. Graduating from Idaho U with a BA in Public Speaking (Journalism). It took her 6 years.

    Well I guess with a resume like yours no one can question anything you say.

    Obama was the president of the Harvard Law Review.

    What are your credentials?

    Obama was the editor of the Harvard Law review. It's probably the most prestigious position among University students in America. They didn't know he was going to be president. You can only get that if you are academically at the very top of your class.
    How can he be attacked on such an amazing achievement? You should be proud that we finally have a president who is gifted academically. It means he is smart. That's a good thing.

    The world awaits this valuable information.
    Maybe he's got a copy of Mr Obama's thesis to.
