Obama doesn't have to do anything to get bad press. If it's a slow day the regressives will just make something up.
In spite of his many accomplishments in law and academia as a professor and author, he may be best remembered for his representation of Anita Hill when she accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. While some reference Ogletree to having had an association with the Black Panthers, reputable references only go as far as saying that he did some work for a Black Panther publication in the distant past as well as having taken part in assisting Black Panther members in 2005 who were accused of a police killing in San Francisco decades ago.

What did Obama do? He visited one of his teachers from Harvard who is a terrible, terrible man because...?
Why do you minimize this? The Professor did a fundraiser the night before Obama was at a reception at his house. No surprise. What is a surprise is that Obama would link himself to a person with strong links to the Black Panther Party. It's because of people like you that he is excused for his past associations: Ayers, Resko, and the rest. Astute people see a pattern here, people like you, unfortunately, say: What's the big deal? I disagree with your non-chalant attitude toward Obama's associations, my friend.edit on 22-8-2011 by ChicagOpinion because: (no reason given)
