Obama’s Former Classmate: The Real Obama Scandal Is at Columbia

Why does Barack Obama continue to hide his college transcripts?

Conservative activist says the real Obama scandal is at Columbia.
Wayne Allyn Root at The Blaze reported:

Obama has won several elections in his career by slandering his opponents and leaking sealed documents. Not only do these insinuations and leaks ruin the credibility and reputation of Obama’s opponents, they keep them on the defensive and off Obama’s trail of sealed documents.

By attacking Romney’s tax records, Obama’s socialist cabal creates a problem that doesn’t exist. Is the U.S. Senate Majority Leader making up stories out of thin air? You decide. But the reason for this baseless attack is clear- make Romney defend, so not only is he “off message” but it helps the media ignore the real Obama scandal.

My answer for Romney? Call Obama’s bluff.

Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago that you are afraid to let America’s voters see? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.

My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.

Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.

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.

Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging into Obama’s past–beyond what he has written about himself–with the same boundless enthusiasm as Mitt’s?

    Romney: You show me yours, I’ll show you mine.

  • coolidgerules

    We are at the precipice. Something is going to happen soon, what that will be is anyone’s idea. Another shocking revelation, another “manufactured crisis”. Something big is going to kick this wide open, you can feel it in the air. If you look at the events over the last 3.5 years, it is almost like this country is being prepped for an invasion.

    And to Harry Reid: ” As soon as you pass a budget, I will release more tax files”

  • rangerrebew

    Find out when, or if, he stopped chooming, too. Also ask why he, as a “Constitutional Scholar” has chosen to ignore it so often. Have him explain why he attacks the wealthy when he is so wealthy. Find out why Romney’s wealth is such a big deal when Lurch Kerry’s wasn’t when he was a candidate for POTUS. See if he can explain why two people who won’t release their tax returns, Nazi Pelosi and Harry Reid, think it is such a big deal Romney won’t release his. Just a few more suggestions.

    Read the whole document. It provides a very clear proposal as to the method of funding Obama college years

  • Conservative to the Core

    Even the RINOs aren’t supporting Romney. They are throwing the election to Obama and will blame the Tea Party.

  • While Obama was “at” Columbia, was he also a citizen of Indonesia?

  • StrangernFiction

    Mitt actually fight back? That’s funny. The choice of John McCain to speak at the convention should clue in the conservatives who still haven’t figured it out (pssst *speaking very softly* it isn’t about R vs. D).

    The “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours” should be asserted by all the American people as well. Have you been targeted by the feds to fill out the “American Community Survey”? Unlike the Census, which is sent to every home in every community, state, across the country, the ACS is sent to govt selected residences even if you filled out your 2010 census.

    We’d like to ask, why should we be required to provide the govt with personal info about our home/lifestyle when Barrack Hussein Obama hasn’t provided the American people with all his personal info? When he releases ALL his info, then come back and see us, until then, have a nice day and stay out of our lives!

    The problem no one mentions is why would Columbia ever want to release his true records. Why would they want to destroy the myth of their first alumnus to be President? It would reflect poorly on them, especially if it was revealed that he was accepted there with poor SAT scores and grades from Occidental only to perform poorly in his classes at Columbia.

    Obviously, Columbia would not want to destroy the original records (which would consist of SAT scores, Occidental grades, and Columbia grades) in order to get favors from Obama when he’s out of office, but if they do release anything, why would one believe they were anything other than forgeries? Plus, even the forgeries would have to reflect mediocre grades because they still have to fit the few facts we know, such as that Obama didn’t graduate Columbia with any honors.

    But I agree with the article that something more sinister must be included in this record, otherwise Columbia would have released a forged B/B+ report card by now to douse the flames.

  • CV1

    I agree, #7 ought to go out and find a clue.

    Obama is evil. Columbia knows it, but Columbia has priorities.

  • Patty

    The media should have done its job in Campaign 08. The L.A. Tapes, think about that.

    It was too late in 08, Obama was elected. Now, 3 1/2 years later we are talking about Obama’s concealing records, Holder concealing records.

    America is in trouble, leaks in D.C. but none about Obama. Nation’s security at risk. Other nation’s don’t want to work with us because of leaks. Yet, Leaks or anything about Obama, concealed, covered up. And I don’t believe we will ever know until these cons, crooks and liar are out of Washington. And maybe not even then.

    Many prominent RINOs have called on Romney to release his tax records (George Will, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Haley Barbour, Matthew Dowd, etc) but none have called on Obama to release his college records. Why is that?

  • Patty

    Liberal media and the voters who will vote for Obama, anyway, they don’t care.

    But more voters in last election are switching their vote for Obama are going to vote for Romney than vice versa.

    Much like that fake birth certificate Hawaii came up with, I expect a ‘dual citizenship’ document of some sorts to magically appear.

  • tennismom

    Someone needs to ‘find’ a credible Columbia transcript for Oby showing low test scores, lousy grades & foreign status. That might force the issue by forcing Columbia to produce the real one.

    A nice project for a patriotic document artist.

    Don’t do it, Mitt; don’t release any more records.

    It doesn’t matter what’s in Obama’s past. The media will whitewash it, anyway.

  • dba…vagabond trader

    Fascinating and plausible. Do it Mitt, have surrogates like Donald Trump start the ball rolling.

  • Faye

    #8 Chillguy,
    I have thought the same thing.
    The reason why Obama does not want to release any college records is because he played fast and loose with his citizenship. I bet he applied for financial aid\ schollies available to foreign born students to get a free education on someone else’ dime.

  • Nelle

    With 400 Columbia students saying they never knew of Obama, there’s certainly reason for a real press to get digging, unlike the baseless accussation by Biden. But we don’t have a real press, with a few exceptions.
    Maybe Trump could get interested in this next. Or someone else high-profile who can get coverage but hasn’t been fully demonized, if there is anyone. What we need is for a few famous conservatives to lend their credibility to some of these issues the press won’t cover. Or should I say, they should volunteer to be hyena bait. I would, but I don’t have time to get famous enough.

    Did you hear the Wayne Root interview on the Glenn Beck Show this morning?
    The guest host was Joe pags.

    Root said that Breitbart investigators are in Indonesia and have proof that Obama had Indonesian citizenship.

    Can you get copy of the audio?

  • Economan

    It sounds like he never attended school there. Maybe his records are forged, everything else about him seems to be.

    I read several of these articles in Lucianne’s Must Reads. Good stuff. One over there is fantastic from AT.

    #15 Haley Barbour and Rick Perry are not RINOs.

    At least someone is aiming at the target, Obama. If our ELECTED officials decide to participate in this fight for the nation, I suggest again, McConnell take up the issue of law enforcement bringing him the charge of forgery. He does not have to go to birthplace. FORGERY is the issue. He can even give the names of those who investigated and who brought the charges to him.

    I hesitate to even suggest that Boehner do the same. I doubt he is capable of this task.

    The Dem/Obama/Scooper Campaign will occur regardless of what Romney or any of us do. I think we will have a live witness, a document, the full fiasco. Probably not for at least another month or so………….then expect Poop Scoopers to go WILD.

    Romney should definitely not release anything. He needs to light a fire under our ELECTED voices to get off their duffs. They have been so ineffective against Obama that it is almost criminal. Somebody point them in the right direction——–Obama.

    Please make the WH worry. They have spent millions to mute it all. Why? Can’t you ELECTED voices even make a wave? Little harry has more guts in his little finger.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    The problem with Mr Root’s proposal is that it takes the fight right to Obie. That approach is something the Republican Party seems to have great difficulty with, even if it’s a winning strategy.

    I’d love to compare Mitt’s grades to Jugears – I’m certain ol’ Barry has sub-par SAT scores and below average marks in college. I’ll bet his IQ is under a 100 — MENSA won’t be calling. Ever listen to him speak when teleprompter is absent ? Lots of stuttering and pauses — idiot can’t finish a sentence. Maybe a foreign-aid student does get special treatment and perks.
    Leave it to the pothead to find the easiest way to skate by on another’s dime.

    The reason Obama has all these problems with documentation (collage, birth) is because the REAL Barack Obama DIED in 1983! This imposter has been using borrowed documents, social security info, names, YOU NAME IT! It’s such a mind-blowingly huge scandal that it can NEVER come out do to all the damage and instability it would surely cause! Why else would a supposedly brilliant student and young man stumble and mutter without a teleprompter? Why else would there be all this secrecy around when and where he was born, where he went to school, and more? Why else would no one remember this him from college? The dems were running scared years ago and decided to manufacture there own personal dream candidate, no different from all the “reality” TV and american idol “stars” being manufactured every year! I can’t believe the lamestream media isn’t investigating this…isn’t the TRUTH worth it??

    only been harping on that for several years now..

    January 24, 2007

    School documents listed Barry Soetoro as an Indonesian
    citizen born in Honolulu, Hawaii on 4 August 1961. Barry’s
    religion was listed as Islam.

    so, the crickets are finally stirring??

    or are they just testing US again..

    Claim: ‘Absolute proof’ Obama was Indonesian citizen

    [The reporter, according to Root, a former Libertarian Party
    vice-presidential nominee, said he has “absolute proof”
    Obama was adopted by his mother’s new husband and
    became an Indonesian citizen.

    “It’s a fact, it’s not a question,” the reporter
    told Root. “I’m looking at [the proof] right now.”]

    glad someone is on the ball, oh wait, believe i’ve said that several
    times since Barry declared himself jack of no trades master of all..


  • mcc

    Re #45 bg — Heard Root on Hannity’s radio show yesterday excitedly talking about this guy who said he now has the proof “in hand” – the reporter was in Indonesia – and would be getting on a plane to bring it here.

    I’m thinking to myself: why are you revealing this before it’s *safely* made public…and my thoughts are taking off, so can’t remember exactly the rest…but it all seemed not real “professional” of Root to blab so much. I’m not sensing he can be trusted.

    Makes you think full-on commies would rather we talk about anything but the fact – and the particulars – of their destruction of our country.

    Re #46 — and Hannity couldn’t talk him out of voting for Gary Whats-His-Name: the Libertarian — even tho’ he’s a Nevada resident and that’s a state it’d be nice to win…

    I think this guy hates himself so much, hates his background, and knows that his family was WEIRD and he had made up some stories, half truths, bold face lies and half truths, etc about his background. He cant release ANYTHING about his background because he will show how much of a freak he is!
