[Ed. note on the Ed. note: this is from a former Chicago lawyer now practicing law in Tyler, TX]

[Ed. note: This is legit. I checked it out myself at Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. Its the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois ; and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony!) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.]

Big surprise!!!

Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and US President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address.

Consider this:

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a lawyer. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

A Voluntary Surrender is not something where you decide Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it? and forget to renew your license. No, a Voluntary Surrender is something you do when you've been accused of something, and you voluntarily surrender you license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2. Michelle Obama voluntarily surrendered her law license in 1993.

3. So, we have the President and First Lady who don't actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

4. A senior lecturer is one thing... A fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama(D-Ill.) served as a professor in the law school but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

6. He did not hold the title of professor of law, said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law .

7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence not the Constitution.

8. The B-Cast posted the video:

9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal.

10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech???

When you are a phony it's hard to keep facts straight.

Obama is the second Democrat President that does not have a law license anymore. What is it with Clinton and Obama who, after all those difficult years in law school, are now ex-lawyers? Maybe that's why they are so chummy as
"birds of a feather flock together". I think both of them should jump into Nancy Pelosi's corruption swamp before it gets too full?
