Obama Hasnít Changed Since Columbia University
The Blaze ^ | March 17, 2014 | Wayne Allyn Root

Posted on 03/17/2014 12:54:20 PM PDT by upbeat5

I told you so. Thirty years ago Obama, my Columbia University Class of ’83 classmate, was rarely seen. Thirty years later he can’t be bothered to attend national security meetings about a crisis that could lead to World War III. Some things never change.

You might ask, “What do Obama’s college days have to do with his Presidency today?”

The answer is everything. By college, a person’s personality, attitude and behavior is usually fairly well set. That’s why Obama’s Columbia days tells us so much about his behavior as President today.

What do I know about Obama at Columbia? Nothing. I never met him. As I’ve reported countless times, I was a political science major and Pre-Law at Columbia from 1979-1983. Even though I thought I knew everyone in the political science department, neither I nor any of my friends at Columbia ever met, or saw Obama there.

Having read all about this sorry President and his work ethic, it doesn't change one thing. He's going to be there until his term is over. Sorry state of affairs!

It’s really scary that this empty suit, this man with a fabricated past, was selected as our president.

It’s beyond passing strange that a future President can attend a major University and nobody can remember him.

He only went there to pick up the grades that were given to him.

You would think that some people would "remember" him just to get their 15 minutes of fame.

Also consider no former girl friends have come forward either and the only person who has admitted to having relations with him was Larry Sinclair I believe.

Has Barry given any speeches at his Alma Mater or attended his reunion? I mean, he’s so sociable, a world superstar and Nobel Peace Prize winner! No reunions or commencement addresses there? ODD, VERY ODD.

The Blaze picking up this geek does nothing for them.

The story of Barry at Columbia is over. He started as a General Studies pick-up, qualified for his degree (somehow, in a very short time and taking very few courses), and the rest is history. What courses, what grades? Nobody at Columbia talkin' and we can't make'em.

Now for some for-real questions:
Did he know Bill Ayres then (Hint: "Yes.")
Did he know the Weathermen? (Hint: "Yes.")
How did he get to Pakistan?
Who TF is this guy, anyway?
How's about those fake photographs of him, Stanley and Pop on 5th Avenue?

Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. (or II): CIA or KGB?

I don’t even think he had a fabricated past. It seems to me, the electorate didn’t care that he had no past. No mother, no siblings, no friends, fraternities, sports history, Boy Scouts, childhood work history.

He grew up in Indonesia. That’s known. It has nothing to do with the Black history of this country he was capitalizing on, even to college graduates I know.

no one knows him from school, Columbia or Harvard. no instructors. he has no cousins, Uncles, no certain last name. There are no photos of his parents. If a Stephen Ambrose type wanted to do a biography, like he did with Truman or even the Brooklyn Bridge, there’d be a page and a half.

I think we knew this. He said there were 57 states.

If Dana Milbank wants to ponder why he’s losing the millennials, he should take a look at that. When my students and I were passing time one day, looking through you tube, waiting for the bell to ring, after we’d seen some great movie, I don’t know, Cool Hand Luke or Hud, or a Buster Keaton short, they asked me to go to Obama saying there were 57 states. THey laughed, but resent that they had this idiot foisted on them who couldn’t pass a fifth grade American History tenet.

Oy

I was not the sort of material to become President when I was in college. But people who were there with me do remember me. Friends I have had for over 30 years now, and a large circle of acquaintances. A few years ago, at my uncle’s funeral, an older gentleman came up to me; he was my uncle’s supervisor in the math department at the high school where my uncle taught. He wanted to convey greetings from his daughter who remembered me from IU 25 years earlier. We dated a couple times, nothing serious. But she remembered me. (And I absolutely remembered her, too).

But nobody remembers 0bama. Or, the press doesn’t want you to know the sort of people who would have remembered him, and they don’t want you to know what he was doing.

Even though I thought I knew everyone in the political science department, neither I nor any of my friends at Columbia ever met, or saw Obama there.

It's almost like Obama is a fictional construct of the type so beloved among liberals who deny the existence of absolute truth.

It's almost like the Barack Hussein Obama alleged to have been born in one of two or three locations in Hawaii, before starting school in Indonesia under a different name until an alleged return to Hawaii in 5th grade, never existed in the real world or has no connection with the communist in our White House.

It's almost like the Barack Hussein Obama alleged to have studied at Columbia as a self-proclaimed native of Kenya, and then served as "Editor" of the Harvard Law Review without ever writing an article for that review never existed in the real world or was constructed either at the time or after the fact to produce a superficially pleasing narrative.

It's almost like the Barack Hussein Obama alleged to be a uniter who would end partisanship in DC, improve global perceptions of the U.S., close Gitmo, end the wars, grow the economy, keep lobbyists out of the White House, cut the deficit, and stop the rise of the oceans never existed in the real world, or at least had no connection with the anti-American racist in our White House.

Obama was born in Hawaii . . .

Unless some other claim is more convenient.

And he is a uniter

A manly leader of men.

Or whatever the far left in the media think will help them to take and hold power while transforming America from a free country into their totalitarian dream (and our nightmare).

I believe this was the main point. I went to a medium size college down south. A friend became a semi famous Actor in movies & tv. The school has had several articles about this guy including a three page interview. BO becomes POTUS and doesn’t even acknowledge Columbia.That defies common sense.

I read an article very similar to this one and the man was at the same class reunion. He reported the same. Only one liberal professor claimed that Obama was in a class he taught. There is a pattern with only one or a few recalling him anywhere from his early life to him showing up in Chicago.

That’s normal. That’s what we do. This guys references, personal, family, academic and professional don’t add up to getting a job at McDonalds. Why is Michelle married to him? All we know is they share a low view of this country. Harry and beds were HS sweethearts, jack married Jackie for diplomacy, Laura married w because they are TEXANS and because he is fun, she is elegant.

There is no cohesion in the BO story. To make sense of any of it, one has to go dark. We knew this going in.

Well, you and I have never communicated before, so I can easily forgive your ignorance of my ground-breaking genetic research.

Barry is actually,

That, plus certain irregularities in the Louisiana Purchase, make the man our King. This conversation is closed.

A Democrat I know voted for him because Obama was completely out of the mainstream of politics — could “think outside of the box”! His lack of experience would lead him to new and wonderful solutions for the problems in the USA. I pointed out that I had never had any political experience, either, nor run any big important enterprise. All I ever did was vote. Did that mean I’d make a great president full of wonderful new ideas and solutions? He kinda hemmed and hawed, didn’t answer. Just gave me a sickly smile. It was the dopiest explanation ever for voting (TWICE) for the guy that I’ve ever heard so far... I bet no Freeper ever heard a dumber one than that.

When the media is happy to play sock puppet for one party, you can fool almost everyone all the time.

The Big Lie technique really works: people are conditioned not to violate accepted social norms, even if those norms include professions of manifest falsehoods.

Every right-thinking Aztec knew that "science" proved the sun would not rise without a daily feast of still beating human hearts ripped from chests.

A majority of voters knew in 2008 and 2012 that Barack Obama was "the right man for the job."
