Update August 9th: The Blaze has a new story telling us what we already know about Obama’s years at Columbia.
This (below) is from The Blaze yesterday in case you missed it and I’m posting it here to add to our Obama files. When we finally learn the truth about Obama’s past, then we can have some fun by seeing who guessed right and who guessed wrong. (And, I hope that happens real soon!)
Wayne Allyn Root:
I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call it “gut instinct” but my gut is almost always right. Obama has a secret hidden at Columbia- and it’s a bad one that threatens to bring down his presidency. Gut instinct is how I’ve made my living for 29 years since graduating Columbia.
Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best its ever been played.
Root goes on to suggest that Romney should play hardball too and challenge Obama by saying he, Mitt, will produce more tax returns if Obama produces his Columbia records.
Then Root continues:
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 has ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
Go to The Blaze to read Root’s theory and while you are there, read the comments which are almost as interesting as the story….
By the way, I’ve always thought that this theory—that Obama got to Occidental and Columbia as a foreign student—was probably the truth. I doubt anyone could have foreseen his future role as President of the US, so therefore the family was probably just figuring how to milk the system and get some scholarship money.
