Skip to comments.Chicago Snub: Gun rights advocate and former Obama colleague: President used to treat him as 'evil'
Posted on 04/09/2012 10:01:50 PM PDT by Bobbys1963
Economist John Lott, noted for his academic advocacy of gun rights, says that when Barack Obama was his colleague at the University of Chicago, the future president treated him as if he were evil.
Lott relates his interactions with Obama in his new book, co-authored with Americans for Tax Reforms Grover Norquist, Debacle: Obamas War on Jobs and Growth and What We can Do Now to Regain Our Future.
The book relates a couple out of the dozen-and-a-half conversations that I had with him, Lott told The Daily Caller. But they were all very short, cut off by Obama turning his back on me and walking away.
He wouldnt shake hands. It was very clear that Obama disagreed on the gun issue and acted as if he believed that people who he disagreed with were not just wrong, but evil. Unlike other liberal academics who usually enjoyed discussing opposing ideas, Obama simply showed disdain.
Lott and Obama were colleagues . . .

I don't know if he's around anymore but let's ping Mr. Lott for his thoughts.
John Lott is brilliant and articulate - He never needs a teleprompter
He is also really clean - unlike Der Führer Obama.....
I have had hunting dogs that were cleaner and much more intelligent than Der Führer -
People get mad when we call Obama "Man-Child" but there's no better way to describe him.
The man has lived his entire life cocooned in leftist theory, and, because he's always been given advancement without having to do any work, he's never, even once, had to match his core beliefs against reality.
He's like that mentally disturbed little prince in Game of Thrones, screaming at his underlings to make the bad man go away.
Obama is not only stupid; he has n class.
"n class," huh? What kind of class were you *going* to say, huh?
Racist, racist, racist! She was gonna say the n word! You all saw it!
Call the press! Give out her address! Beat up her children! Racist, racist, racist!
I hate that word. Always have and would never use it. I meant to say and you know i he has NO class.
Please excuse my typing. I am wheel chair bound right now and getting over a bunch of seizures.
Good God, please tell me you knew I was being sarcastic.....
oh I am sooooo sorry.
I thought it would be obvious I was using your post as a springboard to mock the President’s myrmidons.
Obama doesn’t hate guns - he only hates the average American citizen that has a gun, and people like John Lott who have the balls to tell the real truth. When guns are outlawed, only the outlaws will have guns - and that’s exactly what Obama wants.
Don’t worry about it. Sometimes it is hard to tell. I am on some strong medicine now and it is hard to type. I hope to be walking again; but the seizures I don’t know about.
Thank you for apologizing and I apologize to you for jumping the gun. It was wrong of me. I just hate that word. It is so vulgar. I do think cracker is kind of cute. :)
Thanks again and I am sorry for assuming.
Again don’t worry. I am just as much at fault for assuming..
It was very clear that Obama disagreed on the gun issue and acted as if he believed that people who he disagreed with were not just wrong, but evil.That is a fundamental difference between conservatives and leftists. We think they are wrong about a lot of things. They think we disagree with them because we are evil, stupid, or usually both.
