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."
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.
It’s not like his name is so plain he would fade into the background. Barack Obama or even Barry Soetoro would stand out.
Obama’s Years at Columbia Are a Mystery
He Graduated Without Honors
Being black is Honor enough to get into Haaavard./?
is this some kind of hoax email?
why not post the fox article directly.
I suspect someone iks being punked.
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 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.
In the late 80s Obama asked a radical prof @ Columbia to recommend him to NY Black political leader Percy Sutton. Sutton had been Boro Prez of Manhattan and run several times for mayor. He was a radical, but also a successful businessman. His company was one of the first cable franchises in NYC.(I was one of his customers.) He sold it for a mint to Time Warner. Sutton knew a lot of people and has reminisced about recommending Obama to Harvard. Obama would have needed some sort of degree, but given the time between his graduation year and his arrival at harvard he could have achieved a general studies work study degree from somewhere. With the right intros Harvard is not impossible.
I have no idea if he went to that school nor do I know about his results, nor do I know if he was born in Kenya.
I can only go on what I do know and that is there is no proof right now to him attending infact there is no records for much of his past.
This is the big question and if the so called AP and media had one once of professionalism they would deep a little deeper and actually ask him plus ask his staff and ask why THOSE RECORDS ARE SEALED.
For all we know we could have a smart man in the white house and we could have a massive fraud which will effect the this country for many years to come as well as showing how this media and the his voters were fools and idiots
Considering the pride Columbia takes in its core curriculum—a common liberal arts education for ALL students during their freshman and sophomore years—it’s curious Obama would be permitted to skip this experience entirely. In Columbia’s view, the core curriculum is critical to being an educated person. I wonder how many students successfully transfer to Columbia after their sophomore years elsewhere.
Yesterday, upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d GO AWAY!
we don’t know though but why the secrets and why does no one know him, why no proof?
A name like barack hussien obama back then in your class you would remember it.
It is said that he joined black groups but no blacks know him either, nor does any teachers.
Strange, so was my father...
Scary. This guy needs to be investigated. And he is detroying our country in the process.
nobama was the invisible man until he was elected to the IL senate where he started becoming an opaque vision, then soros decided to make him a full blown halfbreed, caucasian and negro in 2007. We now have a milktoast in the whitehouse.
“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 dont know what this post is implying. That he didnt involve himself much in the school? That he didnt attend classes? Maybe he didnt. But he had to have graduated, from somewhere, at least.”
You met NS too then
The guy is a troll always looking to get attention.
He jumps on threads to do with the south or the birth certificate question etc with his crap.
Believe me there are many on here pissed off with the attention seeking troll
