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 hey

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 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.”


The other possibility is that some one or ones bought him into Harvard.

Could it be that he took many Afro-centric classes ... or classes in subjects that would be harmful to his image?

He did admit he was active in black student groups.

I have a very liberal friend who adores “civil rights” (I know, I know but I always try to talk some sense into him and sometimes I can) who just got into Columbia grad school. He is so proud to be going to the same school as his hero 0bama and after reading his admission essay you would cry at how many times he mentioned 0bama and what an inspiration that 0bama has been to him. Columbia must have liked the essay because they let him in! I have asked him to just find me some proof that 0bama was there! Anything at all!

thanks for that
but he’s not even in a photo with bozo and all that he says is that he knows him/

That is like me saying I know him and then I put a photo of myself with a famous photo of bozo next to it.

the guy is probably a loon looking to get attention

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.

This thread made the rounds here at FR awhile back. Seems to me someone from that class remembers BO ... having played pick-up basketball with him at that time. Whatever, BO's past is vague to say the least ... and he has gone to great lengths to keep it that way. AP turns a platoon of editor/journalists to fact check every utterance in Sarah Palin's new book and seemingly dare not to go anywhere near fact checking BO and his claims.

That seeing a black guy at Columbia in 1983 would of been like seeing a UFO.

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.

To me, this is thin. Had he gone to my high school, chances are I wouldn't know him nor would most students. That he wouldn't be in a yearbook is also unremarkable.

Seems to me that CNN and MSNBC could use a little boost in their ratings. A big dig into BO’s background with accurate reportings of the vast cover up that is going on would be a huge ratings boost. I guess they just don’t care.

I think lying about something like this would be grounds for impeachment if proved. At least in private business it would be grounds for immediate dismissal for it destroys his credibility at all levels. Does anyone here know if this could be used in that manner?

This is a wild goose chase. No one doubts that he attended Harvard Law School

It really is not, the same as the birth certificate issue is not misguided. There really really are fundamental questions about Barack Obama, his integrity, his origins, and his ascendence, which bear on his position to be leader of the once free United States.

These investigations and discussions help reveal that. And help reveal just who is behind positioning him into such a position.

Assuming from your screen name you are a west coaster; living in Oregon part time it amazes me how truly naive (being kind) the good citizens of Oregon are. Like they believe outright Harvard University is this fine historical University that warrants its reputation, and the New York Times is a fountain of intellectual politics and analysis, and that the Ivy League Northeast represents some stalwart reliable values.

Having matriculated and worked there, you may accept it or not, but we are talking about a truly radical, arrogant Leftist (sinister) element throughout, in both established educational and business institutions. Not everyone, but a truly bigoted calculating element. I do not doubt that Barack Obama has a law degree from Harvard University, but the fact that it means anything at all beyond his own ego, and the manipulative cabal behind him, is a totally open question.

When in Oregon, if it were not so serious I would have to chuckle continuously, like watching a human society out of the Matrix. Good people maybe, but clueless; like some sweet young'un talked into the bedroom by the Snakeman.

In addition to his Casper-the-ghost-like attendance at Columbia is the question of how one gets into Harvard law, starting out, academically, at a nondescript small college in southern California, transferring then to super-high-priced Columbia (how?, and who paid the bill?), graduating Columbia with no more than a “C” or at most a “C+” [about the only way he could have graduated and not graduated “with honors” - he IS on the list of graduates but not on any list of those “with honors” - not even the lowest honors); and yet somehow get accepted at Harvard Law (again: how, and who paid the bill?).

If the people who are pulling his strings are as rich and empowered as it would appear from several mysteries surrounding him getting a fake college experience would be very possible. It’s like the birth certificate controversy. If it’s so silly to think there’s a problem then let him produce a room mate or team mate or class mate or a prof, etc.

All goose chases start out as a wild goose chase. It changes very suddenly into a got the goose chase when the goose is gotten!

Yet nobody in ANY of the classes she supposedly should have recalls this articulate, talented young black man. From my undergrad engineering days, I remember the young black classmates, mainly because there were only two of them in my specialty.

You are incorrect that he had to have been there. All he needs is for there to be a transcript in the files showing good grades. How the transcript got there is besides the point.

No one has ever come forward to say obama worked for him at any time during his teenage years or college years, either

No hamburger flipping, no 7-11, no dorm hash slinging, no lemonade stand, nothing. He never held a job in his life before he became a commnunity organizer?

Well, the ONLY person who claims to have known him is a gay guy who says they smoked crack and had gay sex. The whole thing is really strange. It is very damning of the press these days that they refuse to take this on and settle it once and for all. Of course, the fact that something does not, and never has, existed is much difficult to prove than the fact it does or did.

It's not worth much because I read an article about the author of this piece and he's in the tank for Obama. There were several fictitious friends created for the ghost president just as soon as stories about his mystery matriculation surfaced.

This putz has to have friends manufactured for him because he was never there in the first place.

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.

Weren't the radical left organizations (SDS, Weathermen) adept at making false documents?

Are you telling me that if only a couple of black guys out of thousands of whites went to your high school, you wouldn't have noticed them?

In a all white environment a handful of blacks would of stuck out like a sore thumb, and been VERY memorable. I can remember the handful of blacks that attended my high school vividly, they were like seeing a unicorn.
