LA Times Notices Thin Obama Resume

November 18, 2008

Gee, where was this investigative reporting last year?  Newsbusters reports on an article by Dan Morain of the LA Times dealing with Obama’s resume, or lack thereof.

Senior attorneys at the small firm where he worked say he was a strong writer and researcher, but was involved in relatively few cases before entering politics.

[…]

30: The approximate number of legal cases Obama was involved in:

4: The number of years Obama was a full-time lawyer

70%: The amount of time Obama spent on voting rights, civil rights and employment, generally as a junior associate. (The rest of his time was spent on matters related to real-estate transactions, filing incorporation papers and defending clients against minor lawsuits.)

3,723: The number of billable hours Obama accrued while working at Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Gallard

3,723 billable hours in four years?  That’s all?  That’s just 18 hours per week.  Some work he was doing.
