Is Obama hiding something from his college days? Some link mystery years to Ayers..
WND ^ | 9/29/08 | Aaron Klein

JERUSALEM – "Senator Barack Obama is hiding mediocre grades."

"He's covering up his acceptance into Harvard Law School utilizing a boost from an affirmative action program."

"The presidential candidate is disguising his involvement in radical black organizations or that he first met Weathermen terrorist Bill Ayers much earlier than he's publicly admitted."

These are just a few of the explanations from newspaper editorials, pundits and bloggers as to why Obama refuses to release his undergraduate records and has disclosed almost nothing about his days at Columbia University.

Obama attended Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years before transferring to Columbia in 1981. It has been confirmed Obama graduated from Columbia in 1983 with a major in political science and that he did not receive honors, but further information, including transcripts, are sealed by the university.

In his 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father," Obama goes into detail about certain periods of his life, including his early education and his days at Harvard Law School, from which he graduated magna cum laude and led the Harvard Law Review.

But the Illinois senator just barely touches upon his Columbia days.

Obama wrote he "spent a lot of time in the library. I didn't socialize that much. I was like a monk.”

He then immediately moved on to a general philosophical discussion about race in New York, but didn't return to his Columbia experience nor mention any associations with friends or professors at the university.

His Columbia days are particularly mysterious because there is almost no trace of him among students who attended the same year and studied the same major.

Fox News contacted some 400 of his classmates and found no one who remembered him.

Wayne Allyn Root, the Libertarian Party's vice president, told WND he graduated from Columbia the same day as Obama with the same major, yet he never spoke to a single former Columbia student or faculty member who remembered Obama.

Root speculates Obama is keeping his Columbia transcript under wraps so as not to reveal a less-than-stellar record, which would raise questions as to how he was accepted to Harvard.

Can we start a petition of signatures or calls that before we vote on someone who is going o hold the highest office in our Country...we should know why he is concealing records?

What we need are some warriors to go to Obama rally’s and ask him.. yell WHERE ARE YOUR COLUMBIA RECORDS?

Democrats and the media are all over Sarah Palin for not releasing her medical records.

The McCain-Palin cmpaign should say:
“We will release Sarah Palin’s medical records when Obama releases his Columbia College records.”

“thaeres GOLD in them thaere hills”

“GOLD, I tell you!!!!”

You cannot go through grade school let alone university without hanging onto friends. Good and bad.

I think the ONLY friends he had WANT to be silent. Its best for both parties.

needless to say....
excepting the obvious, ayers , dohrn et al who have openly been busted.

Someone needs to roll up some sleeves and toil for the gold... or even buy the school records from a hacker...

There is something very fishy about this.

I hope this story breaks wide open...there is a link to Obama and how he got from Columbia and Harvard. He is a puppet bought and paid for by the socialist underground.

Khalid al-Mansour and W.Ayers. Also the man who paid for his education in Hawaii? He was trained for this.....to

CHANGE AMERICA!!! OH YES HE WILL

Great idea, but if you do make sure you have someone taking vidio as you get beat up.

It would be well worth the pain.

I wish there was a rally near me. (Indiana)

Maybe this has already been said but I’ll bet his book does not touch on his high school days in Hawaii at which time his grandfather ( the white one) got him a mentor by the name of Davis who was a member of the CPUSA...communist party of the United States of America.

Kos is making fun of McCain’s academic record and Palin’s 6 colleges/universities attempts. As a lot of people believe, BHussein’s color helped him admitted to Harvard Law. Not Fair. I would love to see his record. I hope this will be the October surprise.

I heard on the radio briefly that Obama made a statement about White Man’s Greed. Did anyone else hear this, and if so in what context?

If we don’t hit this guy hard now with all this stuff we are going to lose. This financial mess has been created to give Obama the win! Just watch McCain is going to be blamed for the bailout vote. He will be blamed either way.

I remember watching a biography on Obama back in the summer. It kind of glossed over his college years, but it mentioned his 2 best friends were muslims from Pakistan. Obama even traveled to Pakistan with them and spent a summer there. I think it would be REALLY interesting to know what he was doing in Pakistan with his two best muslim buddies...
