This seems to be a detailed description of Obama’s years at Columbia, written by Phil Boerner who says he was Obama’s roommate there.

From Boerner's statement: "Barack has said that he spent a lot of time in the library while at Columbia and one reason for this was that our apartment had irregular heat, and we didn’t enjoy hanging out there once the weather got cold. The radiators in our apartment were either stone cold, or, less often, blasted out such intense heat that we had to open the windows and let in freezing air just to cool things down. When the heat wasn’t on, we sometimes sat with sleeping bags or blankets wrapped around ourselves and read our school books."

Gee, according to Obama's books, school was the time for loud music, cigarettes in the carpet and "drinking beer heavily." Perhaps even sniffing some "blow."

This Boerner drone talks about Obama as if he is Jesus reading the school books with great care.

What a load of BS.

Manning sounds nutty, but the article you linked to doesn’t disprove what he alleges.

Boerner says they only roomed together one semester. The one bylined article wasn’t published until 1983. The Wiki link you posted speaks of him as having “few friends.”

Obama’s whereabouts from 1981 to 1983 remain very much in question.

I read the article and he says nothing about going to classes with 0bama. Bascially he was one of the room mates along with the Pakistani drug dealer whose photo is cropped off in the article; the one sitting snuggled together with 0bama, holding hands. Too bad that is cropped off.
