Skip to comments.Obama classmate: There is a reason Obama refuses to release his college records
Posted on 08/07/2012 8:43:05 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
An Obama classmate from Columbia University called him out this week for stirring up a bogus smear campaign against Romney over his taxes, insisting that Obama's motive is not only to distract voters from the worst economic recovery in post-WWII history, but also to avoid a far more scandalous and devastating skeleton Obama has hiding in his own closet...buried deep inside those college records he still refuses to unseal (and has paid millions to keep under lock and key).
From Wayne Allyn Root (via The Blaze):
"If anyone should have questions about Obamas record at Columbia University, its me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of 83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought Id heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama (or as he was known then- Barry Soetoro). I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia have ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
But dont take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama."
In other words, Obama is going to great lengths to prevent the release of his records from a school that no one remembers him attending (which means he either completely lied about graduating there or failed a lot of classes, which would prevent him from getting financial aid) and that he had no means of paying for at the time.

“The other three may be true, but in nearly six years of college, attending three different universities, I never once saw attendance taken.”
That is the truth! Once the university (read: ‘graduation factory’) gets their hands on your tuition, they could care less if you attend or pass your classes. PERIOD
Libs don’t care because with obama they have the socialist president they want.
Thanks for this info- I’ve been there before, but I didn’t bookmark it.
Didn’t anybody ever complain that they couldn’t understand the instructor?
Oh yeah, The Holder Injustice Department is going to jump on that one.
Why and how would it cost “millions” to keep your college records private? I don’t see how it would cost a cent.
Can you explain?
What's new is that this is now getting a great deal of attention, and is going viral.
Yeah, take the left’s word for it, obamao is a genius, the msm always proclaims it, lol.
While it is highly unlikely we would ever get a communist indoctrination center, aka most universities, to reveal anything about this enemy of the country, somebody, somewhere should be willing to expose the full details of why he surrender his license to practice law along with that American hating wife of his.
We at least know he surrendered the license. Is there a single journalist in this country who is not a card carrying member of the communist party that is willing to investigate this? How about Glenn or Breitbart’s organization?
A person who went through the effort to get his law degree does not just surrender it because of a parking ticket. There must be some serious dirt that is being covered up and why it is not pursued only leads me to believe this entire left/right/dem/gop crap is just a show to distract us from the all too obvious theft of our country by the communists using every method described by the communist manifesto.
I don’t doubt that 0bama was a “less than distinguished” student while at Columbia.
I was a Political Science major at Indiana University at about the same time (1977-1981). I was active in my classes there, and unlike 0bama, I would consider myself a distinguished student. At least enough to get into law school on my own merits and not affirmative action. I was also a German major; there were about a dozen of us, we were in the same classes for four years and we all knew each other fairly well at the time.
Having said all of that, I believe there is only one other Political Science major who would recognize me today: Keane Moody, who also happened to be a hunting buddy and life-long friend. Only one German major, Stephanie, would remember me, and that’s because she wound up living in the same metropolitan area, her dad taught in the same department of the high school where my uncle taught, and we sort of dated once or twice.
So my point is that it’s been a long time since undergrad, and unless you made close friends that you kept in touch with, you aren’t going to be remembered 30 years later. Other than Keane and Stephanie, I don’t remember any of the other poli sci or German majors, and I doubt any of the others now remember me.
A) He rarely ever attended class.
Are there really colleges that track attendance? Other than through inference; i.e., bad grades likely equals bad attendance, how would one determine this?
I think this is good in the sense that it helps reveal that Obama is a fraud. I think it is irrelevant to his supporters that he is a fraud. Will proving he is a fraud matter? I’m not sure. Keep in mind that most Liberals and the MSM still feel like the scientifically proven liar and multiple time perjure Bill Clinton was mistreated for personal foibles.
I must've missed Rush that day....can you bring me up to speed?
I'd be happy to provide my assistance with that. (Off to cyberspace!)
The controversy about the authenticity of the birth certificate is only the tip of the iceberg. Years ago, the craft of spy placement was based on getting specious documents in place, to create a persona and an artificial history, that would withstand a cursory review, but would be found to have been either clever forgeries or carefully doctored copies of original documents that had somehow “disappeared”.
If that is what we have here, it is not a matter of simply spiriting the Dauphin out of France near the start of the French Revolution, or Anastasia out of Bolshevik Russia, and someone surfacing years later claiming to be that person. This was done at a much higher level, and with a widespread conspiracy in place, filing the real originals in an Orwellian “memory hole”, and instigating an instant rewrite of all relevant supporting documentation. The unfortunate thing about that strategy is that contradictory information has a habit of resurfacing, sometimes at inconvenient times, which makes doubling down on the original story mandatory, and the cleaning up of the loose ends imperative.
BS has been called. Any followups?
Not bad points.
But I suspect you would have remembered it if you had ever met the only black student in your subject.
What in the HELL is this clown ever going to put into his Library???
that he killed Bin Laden??? the Navy Seals did that job, I doubt if Hussein knows how to even load a gun..
maybe he will put in all the Food he provided for Americans and never turned a shovel of soil in his life...
what ever he puts...I’ll not waste money on...just can’t wait to see him move out...
