Can’t tell from the pic. Did he graduate with honors? He’s a “genius”, or so we’re told.

He is an EOP, which common experience tells one. His political career created by a degenerate media.

How come it doesn’t say “Barack Hussein Obama II”?

Isn’t that the name on his birth certificate?

My college degree and records state my status as a “Jr.”

So does my BC.

Probably the asterisks indicate honors. Obama didn't have any.

Yes, but the names look to be in alphabetical order. It seems that the asterisks indicate honors. Can’t tell from the pic if his name has asterisks or not, because of the way the pic is framed/cropped.

I find this piece to be a total dud. It proves that Obama actually attended Columbia. This is not telling us anything that we haven’t already been told. Maybe if they had shown that flunked out of Columbia....

The “conspiracy theory” rests on the question of why Obammy is hiding his college records. It was never a question of whether or not he attended Columbia as the article states. It is a question of whether he applied as a foreign student.

The article also assumes his bio was just wrong as to him being born in Kenya. I don’t know this based on documentation and neither do they. They are spouting afterbirther slogans.

Breitbart’s vetting today is mainly geared towards smearing those who dared ask these questions about Obama’s carefully hidden history via misrepresenting those questions.

Stupid or evil?

They're trying to separate “WND facts” from real verifiable facts.

I applaud their efforts to vet Obama without unsubstantiated conspiracies.

The Sock Puppet is a fraud, through and through. His whole life story is a fluid narrative that is massaged to fit a range of situations. He remains a carefully crafted screen onto which a variety of “movies” can be projected. Will the REAL Barack Obama please stand up?

I get the feeling Breitbart is about to drop another bomb. The way they posted the transcript is curious; like it's a come hither. It looks as though it's meant to be a message to Obama that they have something, JMHO.

Exactly. Clearing up what is rumor and what is fact is helpful not evil.

We’ve been doing that for 3 years at FR:

- Obama did not seal his records with an Executive Order.
- Americans could freely travel to Pakistan in 1981.
- The DNC used the exact same nomination letter (including the typo) to Hawaii for Obama that they did for Kerry and Gore.

etc.

I wonder why this is cropped - right around where his name is. And there is very little explanation of what it is - unlike the press release that was photographed from all angles and explained in full.

Look, if he graduated from Columbia so be it - that’s fine with me. But this is a weird photo.

Well, it doesn’t actually say he graduated from the Arts and Sciences side in Columbia University rather than Columbia College that was part of the university. Interestingly, when I look up “Louis Anthony Napoli,” I see he graduated from Columbia College in 1983. When I look up “Richard L. Nahigian,” I see he graduated from Columbia University in 1983; therefore, simply being on this list doesn’t mean that Obama didn’t graduate from Columbia College or that he must have graduated from Columbia University.

Unless this is just a list generated at some point of students in a Bachelor of Arts program at Columbia University and Columbia College but not a graduation list.

I agree with you and I’m disappointed to see the boys at Breitbart being so prissy and pissy trying to distinguish themselves from those bad birthers.

They don’t need to go either way, they can and probably should simply release the info they have.

- Obama did not seal his records with an Executive Order.

Then why aren't the records in the public arena?

I've seen disputes as to whether or not an EO was put in effect but the fact remains they are inaccessible.

What say you and HOW do you explain that?

Americans could freely travel to Pakistan in 1981

Yes they could, what is your point?

The DNC used the exact same nomination letter (including the typo) to Hawaii for Obama that they did for Kerry and Gore.

I have no clue what that is supposed to mean, care to back it up with a link?

For a subject that is supposedly bull sh!t, why do you ALWAYS show up to protect obama?

Why did you post on sites like politijab mocking FR?

Care to reinstate your whack a mole troll posse?

Why do you have the incessant need to come on to a thread that you obviously detest the subject matter?

Only those with agendas or trolls operate in such fashion.

Inquiring minds want know, buckeye.

With the Acorn and other stories, it seemed like Breitbart was learning how to master the "one-two" setup.

The MSM had totally perfected the single news-cycle response with Alinsky isolate-eliminate strategy.

Lord I hope someone on our side has actually upped the game on our side!

Either the left took Andrew out knowing this (tinfoil), or God took him out (faith) at a really weird inflection point, or, the world is just wild at heart and crazy on top (Dern-ish).

We'll have to wait and see what else is coming, before we can judge this a "dud". It may be part of a brilliant media strategy. Breitbart is separating themselves from the crowd. They are showing themselves to be purveyors of objective facts. This article will generate a lot of head nodding, from commentators and observers on the left. That will make them much more receptive of more damaging facts that Breitbart may have up their collective sleeves. (At least, it might make the ordinary person more receptive to those facts -- the unprincipled propagandists in the MSM will continue to be impervious to inconvenient truths.)

Buckey is doing his job, he is deflecting/obfuscating/disrupting the subject at hand/ the original issue.

You can always tell when the subject at hand has struck a nerve, the usual suspects always show up.

This is called “teeing up the ball” in some circles.

First, Breitbart floated the literary pamphlet, which was (most likely, we learn) written by the author himself. Obummer’s tendency to lie comes into play here, but we haven’t seen the last of this story yet. The MSM should have run this story years ago.

Breitbart has now established that Obummer got a degree from Columbia. No name-calling, no insults, just facts. It has also been established that the MSM has deliberately ignored simple, easy-to-find facts such as this printout. This is a black eye for the MSM.

I predict Breitbart will next release a KILLER revelation (foreign student?) that was just as easy for the MSM to find ... but instead they deliberately ignored it and this pins the MSM irrevocably with the title of LIAR in large, fat letters.

Where we go from there is anybody’s guess, but it’s sure to be amusing!

re: “teeing up the ball”

Exactly as you say PLUS who knows what minds it may trigger as to year and documents. Someone who might say “I was there then......”. As I remember the literary pamphlet was provided to Breitbart news — so this, too, may provide some new leads.
