NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA !!!!!!!
email | November 20, 2009 | unknown

Posted on 11/20/2009 9:18:13 AM PST by IbJensen

Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.

Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me.

I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia. Ever! Nobody recalls him. I'm not exaggerating, I'm not kidding." Root adds that he was also, like Obama, "Class of '83 political science, pre-law" and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me.

No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him. Is that not strange?

It's very strange." Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Allyn_Root#column-one

NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major (in the same class as President Barack Obama WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN IN).

Can it be that BHO is a complete fraud?? More intrigue concerning "The Man who wasn't there."

Perhaps the phantom isn't the president after all. He has a way about him of making others forget they saw him.

After being out of the White House for a year or two some will say they don't remember him, but the garbage he left behind to continue ruining our lives will be there.

Is this why none of the records are released including the actual diploma from Columbia? Is he a total fraud that the Communists duped America into supporting knowing his background was built on sand until he got to Harvard. Did Harvard review any transcripts? I doubt with the people pushing him into Harvard Law.

Food for thought!

Root was born in Mount Vernon, New York, the son of the late David and Stella Root. His father was a butcher from Brownsville, Brooklyn, who dabbled in third party politics as one of the original founders of the New York State Conservative Party.

Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major (in the same class as President Barack Obama)

A guy with an ego as big as Obama’s and he doesn’t have his picture taken for the the yearbook?

This is a wild goose chase. No one doubts that he attended Harvard Law School. In order to get in he would have had to have an undergraduate degree. He would have had to take the LSAT. He would have had to have at least passing grades. I don’t know what this post is implying. That he didn’t involve himself much in the school? That he didn’t attend classes? Maybe he didn’t. But he had to have graduated, from somewhere, at least.

Sounds like he may be dropped out of Columbia because he had a crack problem, then had fake transcripts made that he submitted for admission to Harvard.

This infamous liar may not have attended any college or university at all. He is a fraud, through and through. The only real thing about this asshat is that he is a communist and hates the USA.

They sure did. It went like this:

“He’s a total boob, and doesn’t even qualify as janitor.”

Clown college president making Jedi hand signal,

“This is the minority you’re looking for. Let him move along.”

maybe the AP can fact check this when they have finished fact checking Sarah’s book.

I mean we have a man with hardly any background in the white house and there is not one media outlet which is a little curious.

All we have is his two books to go on which I might add has some very radical comments in it.
Now he wrote his own legacy before he came on the big scene which is why I have been saying now that bozo was groomed for this for years and between Soros, Ayers and others they worked on him, they worked on his speeches which his wife has said they have. They waited until the Dem convention to make his appearance with the help of those in the media which they worked with.

They made no one stood in his way , folks like the woman who did beat him in a local election but they got rid if her.

Ayers and others knew that violence was never going to win and they could never take the country over to get their agenda passed so they worked on the political front just like Hitler did and like Karl Marx said to do.

The man has come from no where, make a grand appearance and in just a short time he is now president but seems to have no clue what he is doing.

Look at his first week when he was signing orders and when a reporter asked what he was signing he never knew instead a shout from the back had ot answer for him .

With out a doubt he is a puppet and there are others pulling the strings.

course the left will dismiss all of this and laugh but they still cannot produce many of his past documents

This is what I think too...in 1983 in NYC everyone and their mother were doing cocaine!!!! He must have had a big, big problem. Somehow he got into Harvard yet let’s not forget he had connections and that is all that matters.

This is something that confused me from the beginning. How can someone go to a college and there is not one other person who took the same classes at the same time standing up and saying...Hey I knew that guy before he was President? Not one photo, not one written record, not one person, not one teacher, not one class mate recalling ever meeting the future President. It is just impossible. So was he at Columbia?

Harvard has no rules, especially in regards to black admissions. My friend Gene had a black roommate at Harvard Med School,who was given the questions and answers to the previous year exams. The black guy thought it was a riot, and offered everyone in the dorm copies. Charles Krauthammer was in the same dorm.

Harvard is notorious for “legacy” admissions (e.g. the Kennedys) for whom the standards are different from normal people. Was it not reported that a Saudi prince financed Obama’s education at Harvard? Under those circumstances, there may well have been no “need” to look at grade transcripts or much of anything.

Of course he’s a fraud. Americans can’t believe the OBVIOUS because the media tells them what to think.

Bill Ayers wrote Obama’s books and probably came up with this scam all by himself. Obama when asked about his coming out party into politics at Ayer’s house said Alice Palmer organized it but when CNN asked Alice Palmer, she said she was there but had no part in organizing it. The BIG LIE is safe as MSM will not touch it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvROBLortBQ&feature=PlayList&p=5FC616219D84115B (abour 4 minutes)

They call you a “BIRTHER” if you ask to see proof that makes him eligible to be POTUS. They call you racist if you question him about anything.

The Senate will vote tomorrow on another scam that will further destroy America, we must do it NOW they keep saying! They are in a rush beause one day some might wake up.

Americans can no longer think independently and the radical left knows it (and the few that can still think are attacked continuously). Welcome to 1984 and beyond.

I think you are wrong. By the time I got to my senior level classes in college (economics), I knew everyone, as I had been taking classes with them for over 4 years. If Obama had been in one of my classes, I can assure you that I would remember it, and so would most people. Transcripts, LSAT’s, etc can however be faked.

interesting

after a google search and even on the KOS and mediamatters(feel dirty) sites they still cannot find a photo and even are coming out with really loony excuses like he was at school for only two years and really got down to learn .
ARF

Another one which the left says is that he was not around whe the photo’s were taken
but the best as always and the loons from the left never disappoint is the usual.

Well the guy is an idiot, he is on the right, he is a failure bla bla

always demeaning folks but can never come up with evidence so for the trolls reading this then present a photo of him being there, use facts instead of name calling hey.

I await but will not hold my breath

I noticed during the campaign that there was no one either that went to Columbia, or Harvard, that came out in support of him, that he had gone to school with.

From what I have read he spent $950,000 to hide his past and Michelle’s too.

A Latino news reporter went into the neighborhood that Obama supposedly worked as a Community Agitator, and no one could tell the reporter what Obama had done for the community.

The man is a fraud.

Good questions. Those will need to be taken up at the military tribunal. Eventually, the veil will be lifted and the truth of the "Obama project" will be revealed. The conspirators -- Soros, the leaders of ACORN, elements of the world communist and Islamist movements -- will be brought to justice in a manner similar to the trials faced by the Nazis that inspired them.

Why? Colleges can admit whomever they'd like.

The larger fact is that, to this point, every president has been a man of some note, throughout his entire life. Each has had a long history of visible and verifiable life experiences, as well as innumerable aquaintances willing to come forward and say, "I knew him when..."

Obama has practically none of that CV.

Presidents, by the very nature of the job, are very public men, having led very public lives. What we have now is redolent of something else.

I am still waiting for the jerks like Non-Sequitur to join debates like this one.

I keep asking him IF Raila Odinga's favorite cousin is acting suspiciously with his refusal to show anything about his past, and every time I ask, I get stonewalls and smokescreens from him and the rest of his gang.

I swear, Free Republic has unfortunately become infested with moles and other obfuscating individuals who convolute this Conservative's "no nonsense" attitude that pushes all the right questions.

Bravo to Columbia's alumni who are stepping forward and acknowledging that Raila Odinga's favorite cousin probably never even went to Columbia.

This is Columbia we're talking about. One of the most left-leaning schools in the country. You'd think at least one schoolmate would be more than willing to step forward and say they knew of The One before The One became The One. Very odd indeed.
