Gee, I Wonder Why?

     Did you know that neither our Lawyer President nor his Lawyer Wife can legally practice law?

     Note that Michelle is on “court ordered inactive status.”

     The popular story is that Michelle voluntarily gave up her license and went inactive, maybe because she just didn’t plan to practice law in the future, or something of that nature. The story further goes that she can restore that license and go active at any time she wants to do so. Note that the form is titled “Registration and Public Disciplinary Record.”

     Michelle Obama became inactive through ARDC Rule 771 in 1993. Rule 771 was titled Code of Professional Responsibility.

     Rule 756 became effective February 1, 1973. This rule is titled Registration and Fees. Rule 756 is the vehicle for becoming voluntarily inactive, for whatever reason you want to do so, unless you have reason to be considered under Rule 753 – review and hearings.

     Now, much of America already knew that Michelle Obama had “voluntarily surrendered” her law license. But most of us didn’t know that her President husband doesn’t have his anymore:

     On to Barack Obama who surrendered his law license in 2008. We do not know under which ARDC Rule he went inactive.

     Alamo City Pundit says he is an attorney and talks about having and giving up a law license:

     “Voluntarily retired” — what does that mean? Bill Clinton hung onto his law license until he was convicted of making a false statement in the Lewinsky case and had to “Voluntarily Surrender” his license too.

     This is the former editor of the Harvard Law Review who doesn’t seem to give a crap about his law license.

     Something else odd; while the Search feature brings up the names, any searches for the Disciplinary actions ends quickly.

     As in, Too Quickly. Less than a half-second quickly on a Search Engine that can take five seconds to Search for anything.

     As in, “there’s a block on that information” kind of thing.

     So we have the first Lawyer President and First Lady — who don’t actually have licenses to practice law.

     Had more Americans known about this in 2008, would we still have installed Obama in the Oval Office?

    If I am not mistaken, Obama- sans an active law license- was still black.

    That was his foremost attribute, and the sole reason for his ascendency to the presidency.

    I suspect it to be quite likely that he will be the last black; the last lawyer; the last muslim; the last progressive to hold the office of President. Ever.

  2. Not be a lawyer myself, but the man is only 1/2 black. His lifestyle after moving to HI was not only lily white but upper class at that.

  3. This information was publicly available when he was first running for the Presidency. It was ignored then, and will be overlooked for all time.

    Democrat scandals are "we see nothing, nothing".

    A Republican late with a library book is threatened with a felony conviction.

    No bias here - none.
