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?
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.
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.
Or not one past girlfriend who claims to have dated him?
