will be brought to justice in a manner similar to the trials faced by the Nazis that inspired them.

Wishful thinking. We will not arise, our children will devour us.

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.

That's silly. Crack did not hit the streets until 0 was already at Harvard Law School. Also, the student does not submit his college transcript to the law school. The transcript is always forwarded directly from the college.

Note that this is an unsourced article. Don't get too excited.

I can’t understand why you sent me this linkage.

Did you even look at that link?

That's OK. You aren't the first to post this. You won't be the last.

From the link in reply #32...

“Federal law limits the information that Columbia can release about Mr. Obama’s time there. A spokesman for the university, Brian Connolly, confirmed that Mr. Obama spent two years at Columbia College and graduated in 1983 with a major in political science. He did not receive honors, Mr. Connolly said, though specific information on his grades is sealed. A program from the 1983 graduation ceremony lists him as a graduate.”

Baraq’s records are in a “lockbox” for an obvious reason.

You can bet your arse that if they were “good” records, they would be framed and on the wall in Gibbs’ press briefing room.

Not only willing, but **honored** and **pleased** to say, “ I knew him!”

In the first nanosecond that Palin’s book was released AP had 11 reporters doing a fact check.

So?....Where are the 11 reports doing the fact check on Obama’s life? ...Hm?...Such as DID HE INDEED attend Columbia University? They wouldn't even have to go dumpster diving for that.

And while we’re on the subject ...

Why has NOBODY working in the records office of ANY of his schools, colleges, Selective Service, passport office, etc., ever “leaked” a copy of his records to some high-paying mercenary news source? I’m sure the National Enquirer, for example, would pay big bucks for such exclusive dirt. Hell, I’d ask around for the highest bidder!

Could it be that those records don’t exist in the first place? He’s been caught lying repeatedly, even though the MSM won’t report it, so why not?

I was a geek in college and I was the photographer for the yearbook. Not having your picture in the yearbook is not that unusual. Especially in a school the size of Columbia.

The fact that no one can remember knowing him is a little concerning. Imagine what the Alumni association must think about that. I would think they would want to be all over it, collecting stuff for their Obama display.

Curious.

It could be that they are all dead. It would be about the right timeline, Patient Zero died in 1984.

Apparently Obama was nothing to write home about or send pictures.
Could not find any other connections in google search which were not based on the Columbia Alumi article.

Ironically, no women have come forward and admitted that they had banged Obama before he met his Zulu Warrior Queen.

I don’t know what this post is implying.

How are things in California, Mom?

You're not from Loma Linda are you? I just wondered since you wondered what this post implied.

It implies your president is a damned phony and should have been elected governor of your state rather than sitting in the White House ruining the entire country and ALL our lives.

The crack epidemic in America was from 1984-1990.

You may be right about the transcript, although I am guessing that the procedure probably varies from school to school. On the other hand, I am sure a Saudi Billionaire could figure out how to submit a false transcript for someone to Harvard law.

Crack may not have hit the streets yet coke and pot were available everywhere...even at bars in nyc and you had better believe he was doing it and getting it free.

You register in August of 2009 and have the nerve to call someone who registered before me a “jerk”?

You may be entitled to your opinion but please do not ping me with that kind of post. I don't want any part of it.

And, if you are interested, the accepted practice here is to include any FReeper you are referring to in the “to” line of your posts.

It is considered ordinary courtesy.

“Noticing them doesn’t mean remembering their name.”

In 1971 I attended 6th grade in a school with exactly one black kid. I still remember his name, and I’m not that good with names.

I will work hard for his future opponent, to make the American public feel the same way about his one term presidency.

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

I'm having too much fun watching jackasses like you make a mountain out of a molehill. How moronic do you have to be to take internet chain emails seriously? But then again you already set the bar pretty low in that regard.

A quick google search will turn up people who knew him there. But of course if you did that then you'd have to turn in your tinfoil beanie in disgrace.

This is really stupid.

Columbia Alumns who knew Bambi have been interviewed and featured in the Alumni magazine, which I get.

As to some random 400 people not remembering him, that's not particularly surprising. Columbia College is a big school. The typical graduating class has around 800 individuals. That makes it very easy to get lost in the crowd.

That's especially true for a transfer student who did not attend Freshman orientation, lived off campus, didn't participate in any clubs or student organizations, and mainly kept to himself.

Is this why none of the records are released including the actual diploma from Columbia?

Columbia has officially verified that he 1) graduated with a BA degree and 2) completed a political science major. They also verified his years of attendance.

They have not released his transcript because it protected by privacy laws. Bambi refuses to release his transcript most likely because it shows poor grades. By all accounts currently in the public domain, he struggled and barely graduated.

I'm not sure why everyone here finds this so sinister.

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.

They have, as you can verify for yourself with a simple Google search.

This is a really stupid thread.

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?

There are people who have come forward, as a simple Google search will reveal.

Not one photo,

There are photos.

not one written record,

There is a written record. Obama wrote an op-ed for the student newspaper. You can find it online.

I'm amazed how quick people are to believe what some idiot posts on a blog.

He went to Columbia under the alias Jonathan S. Tuttle. He was the best OD that campus ever had.

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?

You can't just go by anonymous e-mails. They usually aren't the product of exhaustive research.

There's at least one professor (Michael Baron) who remembers Obama and at least two students who transfered from Occidental with him (Sohale Siddiqi and Phil Boerner) who also remember him. There are more people who remember him at Occidental.

I'm not saying there may not be mysteries about what Obama was doing during his college years and why he left so scant an impression at Columbia, but it's hard to make the case that he wasn't even there.

It's final. Much of his life is made up. He's a Soviet style plant.

As I have said before: Someone needs to set up a website where anyone who has proof that Obama was in their life in any way, at any time, can submit it there. It would be good to pay people for the information if it is verifiable. We need to find out the true past of this man.

I think we need to offer some pretty good money for anyone who has verifiable proof that they knew him or were a part of his life at any time. We need to start connecting the dots about who he really is, where he has spent his time and just exactly what he has been up to.

The absence of information is incredible. However, I see that the Boston Globe is still doing it best to spin information re democraps.
