As I was surfing I found this post going back to November 15, 2009 that starts off:
Wayne Allyn Root graduated Columbia (University), NYC in the same year and same class as Barack Obama in 1983. He says no one he knows, remembers Barack Obama from the graduating class.
[...] You don’t get more exact 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, 20th reunion, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! Who was he, and five years ago, nobody even knew who he was.
[Welch] Did he even show up to the reunion?
[Root] I don’t know! I didn’t know him. I don’t think anybody knew him. But I know that 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.
Hmmm, strange indeed. Well, maybe not. According to this comment on the KansasPrairie.net:
President Obama did not graduate from or attend Columbia University.
President Obama attended Columbia College.
President Obama states he attended Columbia.The press, and everyone else, assumed it was the prestigious college, Columbia University.
It is misleading but not a lie. Hmmm. If he’s misleading us on the “little stuff” like where he graduated college; we ought to read between the lines on the “big stuff” on which he’s commenting. Goings on of this sort have lead me not to believe in, or trust, the President of the United States. (I never in my life ever thought I’d make a statement like this. It’s embarrassing).
OK, so what’s the big deal?
Well, just for a moment can we stop pretending that Obama was ever eligible to run for the office of President? He wasn’t.
He was born a British subject, written about by me many times before.
The reason Obama hasn’t released documents that include his college records from Occidental, Columbia College, Harvard University, etc, etc, etc, is because he has something to hide. Hiding the truth about Obama has spawned an entire cottage industry designed to keep the truth away from the American people.
The irony, of course, is the harder they try conceal the truth the clearer it becomes that Team Obama, the MSM including FOX News, and the judiciary are complicit in this lie.
Ah, but back to Columbia University vs Columbia College. Is this really a distinction with little difference? Not really.
According to How to Sneak into the Ivy League, attending Columbia College is a back door into the larger institution known as Columbia University. Students with less than sterling records find they way into “Columbia” using this method. Obama admits that he didn’t take his studies seriously. Looks like the Big O entered Columbia through the back door. Let’s be honest, he worked the system.
How else could he get in besides the affirmative action routine? There’s a reason why this Brit is also called America’s first affirmative action President.
