Skip to comments.Pat Buchanan: MSNBC, Media Helping Obama "Conceal" Records
Posted on 04/26/2011 3:45:35 PM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
In yet another segment where he is double-teamed by two liberals, Pat Buchanan defends why he is skeptical of President Obama's past. "I'll tell you what. He went to Occidental College then suddenly he ends up at one of the best schools in the country, Columbia. He vaults from there to Harvard Law School. Suddenly he's on the Harvard Law Review. Suddenly he's the editor of Harvard Law Review. We've never seen any grades of the guy. These are legitimate questions," Buchanan said. Key quote: Pat Buchanan to Chris Matthews: "You're supposed to be a journalist."

Pat is a liberal isn’t he. Or just a nut.
But if he is attacking the records issue God help him.
I think there is blood in the water....
I think Buchanan whiffs on the issue. He turns it into an affirmative action question when it goes way, way beyond that.
I’m glad Trump is also bringing up this issue that the weenie GOP was afraid to touch during the campaign, ‘cause that would be RACIST.
Pat is not my favorite guy. But this is delicious. Blood in the water, and the sharks are all coming out.
Chrissy wasn’t expecting this from Pat, I bet! It’s getting to the point where they aren’t safe interviewing anybody.
How does a ‘C’ average student from Occidental College make it into Columbia?
Did you notice in watching the video that Matthews was trying to get Pat to say that Obama was funded set up by a rich Saudi beyond affirmative action? Matthews knows fully well there are so many questions surrounding Obama and all of his associates.
From Rev. Wright to the racist Easter Sunday Pastor. Yet they continue to cover for Obama like they were given orders.
Pat makes an excellent point as I also know kids that have high GPA’s and walk on water academically and can’t get a nod past a state university.
“Or just a nut.”
I don’t know about that but the thing I like about him is that he has guts. He’s about the only male conservative who will stand up to the libs. All the rest are females.

It also isn't too much to ask the media to show some curiosity about the academic writings of the man that wants to be president, maybe his medical records too. Just imagine the look of indignation you would see on Obama's face if anybody ever asked him if he ever held an Indonesian passport or applied anywhere as a foreign student, or simply asked him to release all academic transcripts and writings, so we could get an idea of his political philosophy as a young campus radical.
Since they failed so miserably to vet this guy the first time they have a lot of nerve claiming it's all just water over the damn now.
Everyone forgets the JournOlists
And that is why you can say whatever you like about Pat Buchanan, but I'll still listen to what he says. He does alright in those two-on-one situations.
The two opposing him are not really ever able to get it together and coordinate anyway. It's like in martial arts, where just from the physical reality, there's only a certain amount of people who can assault you at the same time without getting too much in each other's way. And that of course can be used to advantage.
What did the latest Sunday racist pastor say?
ps: great screen name - agree 110%
That’s because they aren’t diverse enough!
I very strongly suspect that Mister Obama's potential college education deceit is a substantially greater liability than the COLB (which could be a trap); there is a good reason why Mister Obama conceals these college records.
And, GOP hopefuls should have all their own post HS course work transcripts ready to publish (and pass hostile media scrutiny).
If I were a betting man, I’d bet a LOT of money that Barak Obama applied to Occidental and Columbia as a foreign student.
Was funny when near the end, C(P)rissy declared that carrying around tons of paper to prove who you are is just not necessary anymore, because, as he said, he got his job without showing his qualifications.
This whole thing reminds me of a line from one of the Rocky Movies, “...this is going to be a battle. Get ready for World War Three”.
That's what we have for 2012. Perhaps the best strategy is to just ‘hammer’ the MsMedia and tell them to put up or shut up.
Matthews makes an error stating the barry “demonstrates this kind of brain everyday” (paraphrasing). It is just the opposite. Obama is clearly showing he is in well above his pay grade. Knowing his poor grades will only confirm it for the nation and that is what Matthews wants hidden.
Why else would they so fiercely scorn and mock any who would ask for clarification! If *THEY* though he was really legit, they would have no expectations that what he is holding back and covering up would be needed to be held back. If they were honestly claiming that he was born here, born in Hawaii, that his parents were married, that he was a great student, that he is honest in his applications for college admissions, they would also expect that all the documents he hasn't yet released would be perfectly consistent with those assertions of fact.
But then they don't really believe they ARE true. They think it is likely there is fraud, there are deceptions and lies in them. So they insist that no one should bother about them!
Hamlet:Madam, how like you this play?Queen:The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
They have nothing. They are afraid. They are in superDuperCoverUP mode now because they went ‘all-in’ last time around.
the country’s first affirmative action president.
However during the campaign Obama said he was inspired, by his love of the country that allowed his father to triumph against astonishing odds.
Edited in some chronological order..for easy review.
At about the 9:10 mark, Matthews says about himself:
“he said, he got his job without showing his qualifications.”
It’s a bit hard to hear, but I think Buchanan chimed in by saying, “That’s apparent.” Not sure if Chrissy caught it.
I wish our guys would show up for these MSN smackdown interviews with an iPad, and play the bits like where Chrissy himself says that Obama should just show his birth certificate and get it over with.
Play back their own words on them over and over - visually with an iPad.
was trying to get Pat to say that Obama was funded set up by a rich Saudi....

Mark Levin is wrong at this moment. Obama’s defect to hold office can not be corrected by the swearing in, or ignored by separation of powers.
“Pat is a liberal isnt he. Or just a nut.”
You’re kidding...right? I guess perhaps you truly don’t know. Pat Buchanan is and has been forever a right wing pundit. He is also an extremely well known author. Not to mention Republican Presidential aspirant in 92 and 96 and Reform Party Presidential candidate in 2000. He is probably best classified as a Populist if you really want a label for him.
I have read two of his books (”Churchill, Hitler, and “The Unnecessary War”” and “The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization”) and highly recommend them.
Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.That's Section 4 of the 25th. Meant for sickness, it could also provide for other infirmary to hold the office.
In any case if Obama is not NBC, he is not President. ALL PERSONS are then enabled to force him out of office, and to deny any authority to him. Having an established Process doesn't come before the duty to do what is right. No written law, regulation or precedent covers every situation. At times -- this is one -- completely novel steps have to be taken.
Someone please tell Pat that Zero was the president of the law review, not the editor.
Obama went to Columbia GENERAL STUDIES A hunting dog could have walked in off the street, paid his money and sat down in a philosophy class.GENERAL STUDIES is for "nontraditional" students. You pays ya money, you is in! He did not go to Columbia COLLEGE.
Now, if GENERAL STUDIES sees fit to give you credit for your college work somewhere else, and you figure out with your advisor,(maybe Bill Ayers helped, his sister-in-law was a Barnard prof there,) what you need to get a degree, well by golly, keep on a-payin' and they will get you a degree!
Guess what name is on the degree: Columbia COLLEGE and yours, hopefully, Soetoro, Obama, Dunham, whateva!
Please. Look it up.
Mr Ayers received the care and feeding of young BO/BS from gay commie activist Prof. Lawrence Goldyn, BO/BS' mentor at Occidental.

Gang Our research effort need some clean-up. This stuff has been on the site for 2 years and is easily checked. Buchanan is allowed to screw up. He's rich. He and his sister Bay creamed over $12 Million from that last joke presidential campaign that she ran for him. BTW, completely legal. Ralph Nader's been running the scam for years.
There is no mystery about Columbia except what classes he took, what grades he got, and whether or not he took the LSAT for Harvard. IMHO, Not. He wasn't there a lot, which is another problem, but long enough to get a degree.
The Lame Stream Media hard at doing the same as usual for the last 50 + years - nothing but preening their own feathers.
I saw this too.
Best line from Pat:
“Why is it that the Nation Press Corp while Donald Trump is out there supporting the peoples right to know you guys are all supporting the President’s right to conseal?”
The school of General Studies made my resume look like I was a wizz bang scholar. They had so many titles, pick one.
100% correct. PRESIDENT. Ceremonial and administrative job with the admin handled by paid help. BO/BS drank cocktails, talked a lot of bosh at meetings, and hung out looking tan.
His law school classmates did not think all that much of him. Harvard LS is very hard to get into, but impossible to get thrown out of. Quite a few folks who knew him there have stepped up with mixed reviews.
Hey, he's a Harvard Lawyer. That really is quite something, whether he got there by hook or by crook.
PRESIDENT not "Editor." CertificaTION not "CertifiCATE" for the COLB online. The entire eligibility issue is always framed in imprecise terminology ... on purpose by the MSM, By sheer carelessness and ignorance by us on the other side. IMHO, That's a pity, because it automatically tends to demean and invalidates the argument.
In NYC, the town is crawling with GS operations, Columbia, NYU, CCNY, Cooper Union, and in my day they crawled with a weird collection of old bolshevik adjunct faculty that looked to me as if Trotsky had demobilized the Red Army in Times Square. Some great characters.
Also, at Columbia, once you paid your money to the GS operation, you might even be allowed to take real courses with the Ivy Leaguers from the College, provided you had the pre-requisites and they had room!
IIRC the situation is that it is possible that Obama went to Columbia via the wide-open “friend-of-the-school” General Studies program, but we don’t have the direct evidence to confirm that hypothesis.
Some info from a Columbia alumnus:
If he were in the COLLEGE, he would have had to have taken Columbia COLLEGE's required and extensive Core Curriculum, that consists of 4 seminars of Literature Humanities, Contemporary Civilization, Art Humanities, and Music Humanities. Columbia is pretty strict on this and all transfers must take these, as did all the transfers I knew while attending.
The other required courses in the Core Curriculum are writing, foreign language, and foreign culture courses that he may have been able to avoid through earlier coursework at Occidental.
Columbia COLLEGE has had this Core Curriculum since 1919, and all 4 seminars were required when Barack attended, especially of transfers.
Also, these COLLEGE-required seminars are not large lecture classes. The seminars have a maximum of 12 to 14 students. They are strictly regulated, e.g., missing more than 4 classes results in automatically failing the class.
The School of General Studies doesn't require the Core Curriculum, so Barack would've been more under the radar there. It also explains why no one knew him.
The School of General Studies also awards the B.A. degree. The School of General Studies is for non-traditional students, who are usually older, have unfinished degrees, etc. It is similar to Harvard's Extension School.
second link is particularly good.
First of all what country was he talking about, and one could ask: is he punishing America? for Snr hardly triumphed over any astonishing odds or triumphed in his life period. Jnr knew by that time he went onto a campaign trail, what his father described as from family members and his bigamy and abandonment relationships and even talked about the racism in his family and in school in his book.
Obama ran on a platform of transparency.
The majority of voters still do not know of what you write. The MSM won't talk about it. Anyone that does will face personal ridicule. Trump stuck his neck out and took on an unpopular and very queasy debate because it could be regarded as racist- whereas Obama finally was forced by someone into releasing his full legal certificate of birth, still surprised that it was even an issue?
Thanks for your input.
Snr father did the same general admission for credited studies.
