> One person who did remember Mr. Obama was Michael L. Baron, who taught a senior seminar on international politics and American policy. Mr. Baron, now president of an electronics company in Florida, said he was Mr. Obama’s adviser on the senior thesis for that course. Mr. Baron, who later wrote Mr. Obama a recommendation for Harvard Law School, gave him an A in the course.
Well that's a funny choice since that is taken from a web SATIRE site, which then went on to claim that this "thesis" he wrote denounced the US Constitution:
> "The Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy."
This was spread around by dummies who failed to realize that the essay, the A grade, the political science professor who now ran a Florida electronics firm, and all the other claims were totally made up nonsense for an Onion style article clearly marked as such.
Columbia University themselves has stated, "an undergraduate thesis requirement for those in political science did not even exist at Columbia in 1983."
