Amazing pasts posts have been deleted. Glad the typo was corrected but Obama got into college after admitting his partying and drug use the last 2 years of high school and having less than stellar grades. So let's cut through it all---affirmative action--and we are seeing the results of his unqualified status to this day. Kids, mark the right box.
