DOBBS: Well talking about pitiful performances, the liberal national media which has all but abdicated its responsibilities to inform the American people and do some significant investigative reporting did such a poor job of vetting the President in election that they continue to look the other way on a host of issues. This story that I'm about to tell you has been out there since late August. There hasn't been a word in the national media about it. It concerns the President's Columbia College thesis. Now Joe Klein of Time Magazine got a hold of ten whole pages. In his paper that is entitled Aristocracy Reborn, Mr. Obama wrote the following about the constitution while in college: "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." Whoah.

Previously:

Claiming "I have had this happen to me," Limbaugh says he doesn't care if thesis quotes are fake, "I know Obama thinks it"

Limbaugh on college "thesis" he says Obama wrote: "[T]his little boy in college" had "disdain" for Constitution

So desperate they'll believe anything -- the fake Obama thesis debunked
