Skip to comments.NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA ( But heck, we're all just racist birthers...yea right! )

Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.
Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me.
I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia. Ever! Nobody recalls him. I'm not exaggerating, I'm not kidding." Root adds that he was also, like Obama, "Class of '83 political science, pre-law" and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him.
At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me.
No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him. Is that not strange?
It's very strange." Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia.
NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major (in the same class as President Barack Obama WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN IN)
The communist traitor mole plot thickens.
odd isn’t it
“FREE THE LONG FORM!”
Do you think he’s lying about this too, or is that just crazy talk?
Which alias was he using back then? Was he really there????
Of course they remember him! He was the one with the red, black and green fist afro pick in his back pocket and the cigarette dangling from his mouth always “axin” for a light.
Obama’s Columbia years are shrouded in mystery. However, I believe he attended. How else could he have gotten into Harvard Law?
But I have not seen this Columbia story before, so I don't know if it's verified or not.
He probably attended by way of home schooling from Atica.
this guy say Fox News did something. does Fox News agree they did this work?
Yeah, it's not like somebody could get paid off to just type up a transcript for somebody who was never in any class, showing him as having been there.
The “sory” may not be true, but nobody knows what he was registered as. He has those records sealed and is fighting any attempt to release them.
The same way he got into Colombia, of course. :)
And this obama freak defies 1000 degrees of freedom?????????? What the hell??
You would think that being popular meant having friends. It’s a little odd that he had no friends or anyone else who remembered him.
CUNY student with open admissions, anyone?
‘Life experience’ grad in HLS’s view, after major donation?
The alternatives are really hard to wrap your head around.
well, 400 degrees anyway...
From Kenya tp Indonesia to Hawaii to Pakistan to Harvard to Chicago to the White House to the white hut?
Ommgawa, b'wana !!
now what would give you an idea like that...
this clown has been “running a game” on the system all his life...various SS#’s, aliases, no medical records, no college transcripts, no birth certificate...
and the Geldings in the GOP and the socalled "conservatives" like Hannity, Limbaugh and Coulter et al have done zip to investigate and expose this phony...
they're too busy laughing all the way to the bank "selling books!"
we could have the anti-Christ in the WH and nobody would know different!
This guy is president?
Attending under the name Barry Soetoro, with an exchange student scholarship?
I have no doubt his family worked with the Spooks. All you have to do is look at what was going on in Indonesia at the time Ann suddenly decided to marry another foreign student... who had been given permission by a Communist sympathizer to go to school in Hawaii.
Judge Carter has had a sudden change in demeanor about the case before him.
Either the Spooks whispered in his ear..or the mobsters did..or both.
I’m sure his half brother in the hut would be able to back him on that......
When I was in college, I was an older student who didn’t “hang with” the younger crowd, but I know my instructors would remember me... I have proof of attendance, and transcripts. (LoL)
From George Washington to Barack Hussein Barry Soretoes-Obama is indeed a quantum leap.
(Of course there are a few miscreants in between like FDR, Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton and the little pissant Carter.)
Whether it is true is not the question, think of it this way, anyone come forward and say he was a friend, acquaintance, or even knew of him while at Columbia? One would think in the media center of the US: NYC, someone would have come forth to say something about him and find their way onto TV or the radio. Alas, none have done so.
Sort of like W’s service in the Alabama National Guard, ey? I’m sure Chris Matthews and Dan Rathernot will be all over this.
The Man Who Wasn’t There.............
Seems to me that some Columbia graduate here must have an alumni directory that was published five or more years ago. (I have a number of these for my alma mater.) How about looking up Soetoro for us?
6 degrees of separation. It takes six steps (you plus five others) to find somebody who knows somebody you know or are related to.
The bizarre thing is that if you ever see the movie, Six Degrees of Separation, based on a play of that name, it could be Bambi’s biography.
An unknown light-skinned young black man shows up at a wealthy home, claiming to have gone to school with the son of the family, and basically moves in on them. He’s well dressed, well spoken, and has done a quick study to know the right things to say. He of course doesn’t know anyone in the family - he’s a sociopathic con artist - but he knows how to carry off the fraud and he robs them blind. Finally they come home unexpectedly and find him having a homosexual orgy in their Park Avenue apartment and kick him out. He moves on to another victim.
The principle is there. Just walk in, announce you’re somebody you’re not and that you really belong there, and if you’re a sociopath (like Obama) and can say it with conviction, most people will believe you. But they wake up sooner or later.
Unfortunately, now that this is released, there are high odds that a number of reported acquaintances will be fabricated, reinforcing each other. I wonder what percentage of the PoliSci preLaw undergraduates were polled?
I believe he was there (I graduated in ‘82). But it’s possible to attend the school and be a complete no-show on campus, if you have the right connections. I wouldn’t be surprised if his handlers, including Bill Ayers, cooked up a special program for him where he attended off-campus sessions for credit.
The neighborhood around Columbia is typical urban congestion, most of it owned by the university, and I could easily see someone living off-campus, getting indoctrinated by his handlers, and being just “present” enough to fulfill requirements without being “contaminated” by other students.
The campus protester were amateurs and wannabes. Obama and his handlers at Columbia were the real thing.
Don’t get lost in the Wilderness of Mirrors.
Occam’s Razor, always.
and have the “media” “camped out” at their doorstep...yea right...besides you're assuming he was a "student" and "brilliant"...
besides, the Leftists on the faculties of these universities & colleges are ecstatic that they have FINALLY got one of their own in the WH...
Hmmm, wonder what cute nickname these folks are going to get.
Are there any online directories for those years?
I have one, and he's in it. There is also an article by him in the college magazine from 1983 decrying the deployment of pershing missiles in Europe.
I don't doubt he has the paper from Columbia. I just doubt that he was part of the normal campus system.
I was thinking the same thing! Instructors keep records...and sometimes assignments. Even if he was a poor student, they could say, “barack was my student, but I knew him as barry..he was quiet, but persistant”. Anything said is better than nothing.
