President Barack Obama became the first black president 25 years ago today -- of the Harvard Law Review, that is.

The New York Times shared a screenshot Friday of their 1990 profile of Obama, which ran after he became the first black student elected to preside over the Review. Obama was 28 years old at the time.

Obama and his family must have been very proud. We're also proud of you. Nice job, Mr. President.

That was CORRECTED - you racist asshole.

Knowing full well the flood of comments that is about to ensue, here's the statement that the literary agent who has stirred up quite the controversy this afternoon gave to Political Wire:

"You're undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me -- an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."

He was unimpressive then, even moreso today.
He is clean and well spoken though.
When he's reading off a teleprompter.
Off the cuff, he's kind of a stuttering smuck.

President Obama's most historic barrier breaking quotes lets hear them...

1. "If you like your plan and your doctor you can keep them, period"
2. "families will save $2,500 a year on their health insurance"
3. "It wasn't my red line in Syria it was the worlds red line"

Sounds like the OP really bothers you - since you're trying so hard to derail the thread.

It was only corrected after Godrich got a threatening call from the WH to do damage control by making it up she made a mistake. Not one book author interviewed has believed her story. Oh my, whats this from 2004?

Birthers have the most bizarre fantasies.

Of course Stevie the racist is a Birther- and a racist.

Must burn his butt every day seeing a black man in the White House.

Middle class, suburban ghetto.
Obama is not even black. He's the offspring of an absentee father who was an African national and an assimilated white American mother and was raised by assimilated white American grandparents in an assimilated mostly white American community. All he has that is remotely black is skin color. But isn't that all it comes down to for segregationist democrats? Isn't that all that matters?
Then consider that superficial race-based merit system got him socially promoted all of his life to the point where his voters at Harvard dare not vote against the ostensible black man because that would make them racist in the eyes of insulated white lefties.

Just proves that he was really good at fooling people even back then, he was never published because he was too stupid to write anything worth publishing.

WOW is right Lakhota!!!! You had no idea black people could do such things!!!!

Being black is not an accomplishment, neither is being born a female.... But that is what Dems like you base their vote on rather than policy, hence the weakest most divisive President in history being a Democrat.
