The source for the 2.6 number is a successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur and a Columbia alumnus who maintains good ties with the university.
In 2004, after Obamas successful speech at that years Democratic convention, a Columbia University official told him Barack Obamas GPA, he explained to TheDC.
This person told me that he [Obama] was a pre-law, poli-sci major, had a lot of incompletes, and as best could be determined after sorting through the incompletes, had a GPA of 2.6, said the businessman, a former Marine Corps combat veteran.

The writer wanted people to send him weird rumors about Obama that "baggers" believe.
I thought I was signing up for the first time, and when I tried to login under my email address, they informed me that "Your account has been deleted from Huffington Post."
Had they seen that I tried to cut and paste this to dispute their notion that Obama was smarter than Romney?
"Upon his return, he married his high school sweetheart, Ann, and soon after, enrolled in Brigham Young University. He graduated in 1971 with a Degree in English, with a 3.97GPA. His young family then moved to Boston, and Mitt enrolled in both Harvard Law (HLS) and Harvard Business School (HBS). He obtained his MBA from HBS in 1975 and graduated cum laude from HLS with his Juris Doctor the same year, finishing in the top 5% of his class."
Or had they somehow spied on me and got wind of my Romney donation this evening?
I was just getting used to their site, so come election night ( if FP went down), I could have some fun with them.
Does Huffington Post have spies on us?
Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can’t Fail.
Obama flunked lunch at Columbia!
Black that is how
About Obama as “Mensa material”:
I’m a member of Mensa. Full disclosure: I am down at the very bottom of where you can be to get into Mensa. But it has been a very fun organization for me (we have a lot of geeky parties!). More to the point, I now know a LOT of very, very intelligent people, most of them smarter than me ... and friends, I am here to testify that Obama does not fit the profile. He’s what we call an “overachiever”: Someone who has worked their butt off to reach the top, but in terms of their mental agility and acuity, they just don’t cut it. If Obama is truly “our smartest President,” then God help us all, because we’ll need it!
Lol. If Zero had been mensa material, he’d been more like Birdman Bryant mensa.
They have had a hard time convincing him to come back for their homecoming week. The Mensa in Chielf (not!) would rather hang out or hide within the skirts of their counterpart.
‘Obamas decision to speak at Barnard has caused some heated reactions among Columbia students, the Columbia Spectator reported in March.
Emilio Fajardo said that the decision seems like a slap in the face to Columbia, the paper wrote, quoting a Columbia sophomore. Sean Udell, CC 11 and president of the class of 2011, spearheaded the POTUS Project, a campaign to convince Obama to speak at Columbias commencement ceremony last year.
Im shocked and happy that Barnard will get to have Obama speak at their commencement, Udell said. Im quite disappointed, of course, that President Obama spoke to our sister school, instead of his alma mater.
Really? Wow! If I had had a GPA under 3.4 I don’t think I would have even bothered applying to any Grad schools!
Which is why I would not trust a black surgeon in a million years. There might be a black surgeon who is the greatest surgeon in the history of the universe, but thanks to "affirmative action", that black surgeon suffers a stigma and he will never be fully trusted by many people. Congratulations to the Democrat politicians, the blacks who elect them, and the top black professionals who stand by silently and let this disgrace continue. Nice work.
Tell me about it. I was a member of MENSA for a little over a year. Went to TWO meetings, two separate groups, and immediately knew it was not going to be a good thing after either one. Especially after admitting (1) that I was a military officer (2)that I was a Conservative, and (3)that I owned guns.
The first group found conversation about BDSM sexuality of high interest. In fact, they seemed obsessed about it. When invited to come downstairs to “the Dungeon”, I looked at my watch, made an excuse, and left quickly. Hearing snickers about “stupid Republican vanillas”. . .
The second one IMMEDIATELY inquired into my politics, and basically told me to leave and not come back, I obviously wasn’t really MENSA material. . . .
By the way, isn’t it comforting to know that half of all doctors finish medical school in the bottom 50% of their class?
Maybe they meant Densa as he is very dense.
Should have written MENSA. But I admit I am Densa-—because like Gov. Romeny said, I’ve had long nights...worrying so much about this election, I can’t handle details, shouldn’t operate heavy equipment, won’t go near sharp implements, see dead people in the voting rolls, and am sure I’ll go into a crying jag if FR goes down on election night.
Depends on your definition of “work,” doesn’t it? I think he has worked very hard in some ways ... schmoozing, sucking up, brown-nosing, yes-sirring ... the list is endless. Nice work if you can get it, I guess.
