Obama's College Records

The Blaze (Glenn Beck's news site) has a great headline up: Obama's College Classmate: "The Scandal is at Columbia." It's written by Wayne Root.

That Obama had middling grades yet tranferred from Occidental College to Columbia I heard about through Breitbart, in their Vetting series. However, this classmate says some pretty serious things about Obama I have never heard previously. You know, since the liberal news media doesn't consider vetting liberal presidents worth their time or ours.

The intro to the article is Root's plea for Romney to call Obama's bluff on the whole tax records thing, and predicts that if Romney insists that Obama show the same records he's been showing, that Obama will drop the tax record thing like a hot potato.
If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s 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 I’d 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 don’t 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.
With me so far? Next, he talks about why Obama would seal his college records. If he good grades, it wouldn't make sense. How would he get good grades if he never went to class? If he had bad grades, then how did he get in, and how did he get from Columbia to Harvard? And either way, how did he pay for an expensive education coming from his family? Student loans and scholarships require good grades, after all. Root's answer is insightful and certainly begs answers from Obama.
Here’s my gut belief: Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. But did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? When he returned to live with his grandparents in Hawaii or as he neared college-age preparing to apply to schools, did he ever change his citizenship back? I’m betting not.

If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that: 
A) He rarely ever attended class.

B) His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.

C) He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.

D) He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.

If you think I’m “fishing” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of?

If it’s okay for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to go on a fishing expedition about Romney’s taxes (even though he knows absolutely nothing about them nor will release his own), then I think I can do the same thing. But as Obama’s Columbia Class of ’83 classmate, at least I have more standing to make educated guesses.

It’s time for Mitt to go on the attack and call Obama’s bluff.
Pass it on! Doesn't it bother you, to any degree, that we don't know anything about how Obama got where he is? It should if it doesn't.

  1. I had never heard about this before, it's interesting and possibly true. To me, the bottom line is that he's not qualified for the job he has and we can see that in vivid detail.
