Dr. John C. Drew, a grant writing consultant in Laguna Niguel, Calif., tells Newsmax he met Obama in 1980 when Obama was a sophomore at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Drew had just graduated from Occidental and was attending graduate school at Cornell University.
Drews then girlfriend, Caroline Bossnow Grauman-Bossknew Obama because she shared classes with him at Occidental.
During Christmas break, Drew says he was at Grauman-Boss home in Palo Alto when Obama came over with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, his roommate from Pakistan.
He was arguing a straightforward Marxist-Leninist class-struggle point of view, which anticipated that there would be a revolution of the working class, led by revolutionaries, who would overthrow the capitalist system and institute a new socialist government that would redistribute the wealth, says Drew, who says he himself was then a Marxist.
The idea was basically that wealthy people were exploiting others, Drew says. That this was the secret of their wealth, that they werent paying others enough for their work, and they were using and taking advantage of other people. He was convinced that a revolution would take place, and it would be a good thing.

I’m shocked, shocked!
Now, how about his Occidental (or ANY school) transcripts?
I have to wonder if Bill Ayers feels he was rewarded adequately for writing Obama's autobiographies, or if he was exploited?
This isn’t news.
Too bad Obama never grew up to have an epiphany and realize that Marxism is rubbish.
That this was the secret of their wealth, that they werent paying others enough for their work”
Michelle Obama’s salry was $300,000 to do hospital PR work in Chicago. I wonder if Obama thought she was being exploited.
“This isnt news.”
At least it’s an interview with someone who knew him back then!
It might be a good idea for Obama to read Thomas Sowell’s book Marxism. Maybe it’s not too late for him to learn something other than all that crap he’s imbibed over the years.
...or how about a long form birth certificate? Any SAT scores available? College transcripts? Does anybody in the MSM care about this fake’s background? How did he get into Columbia and Harvard Law? Affirmative action, anyone?
There’s lots we don’t know about The Messiah...like what drugs did he take when living in New York City? Did he sell drugs? Where did his money come from during his student days?
Is anybody in the media interested in the life of the man who is currently the POTUS...and draining this country’s last resources? Who is he?
Dr. John C. Drew, kiss your career goodbye. The DNC attack goons are already researching your entire life, plotting how to take you down.
“Obama Espoused Radical Views in College”
No! Really??? I’m shocked.
I call BS to this story. I find it interesting that as the BC issue takes hold and Obamafascist’s college transcripts are to be found we have this story. Reminds me of his thrid grade picture that the person sad he only recently recieved from Obama.
Where was this guy a year and a half ago?
“In a similar vein, when he discussed politics with him in 1980, Drew says that in Obamas view, America was definitely the enemy, and American elites were the enemy, and whatever America was doing was definitely wrong and bad. He thought that perhaps the Soviet Union was misunderstood, and it was doing a better job for its people than most people realized.
Gee what a surprise.
From the campaign, and from CBS:
“Obamas connections to the radical-left politics espoused by Pfleger and Wright are broad and deep. The real reason Obama bound himself to Wright and Pfleger in the first place is that he largely approved of their political-theological outlooks.”
The rest of the article is worth a read.
And Drew didn’t think this information was important enough to tell Americans about BEFORE the election?
This story can’t be true. According to Reverand Manning, Obama was in Afghanistan at this time and in training with Al Qaeda.
(On the other hand, this sounds like every conversation I had in 1994).
