What college did you go to and how many students were there?
There are 20,000 students currently in Columbia. Granted the number may be smaller in the 80's but still.
Would you remember every one of the 20,000 if you transferred to Columbia as a junior?
Would you expect all of them to remember you BEFORE you became famous?
NO ONE remembered BHO @ Columbia - there is NOT ONE STUDENT OR TEACHER who has come forward...........end of story!!!
You know what? That is SUCH a lie. You can caps lock and bold it if you like and that fact does not change. This nonsense just keeps resurfacing every
time someone gullible gets an anti-Obama chain mail in their inbox.
Columbia remembers him, acknowledges him, and has dedicated pages on it's website to him.
You'd think if he was never there that they would have caught on by now. Columbia must be full of morons.
How about his college roommates(?!)
article up on the Columbia website?
Does he count as a student?
Barack Obama ’83, My Columbia College Roommate
I was Barack Obama ’83’s roommate at Columbia College in fall 1981. I met him in 1979, when we were freshmen at Occidental College (Oxy) in Los
Angeles and our dorm rooms were directly opposite each other.
I remember often eating breakfast with Barack at Tom’s Restaurant on Broadway. Occasionally we went to The West End for beers. We enjoyed exploring
museums such as the Guggenheim, the Met and the American Museum of Natural History, and browsing in bookstores such as the Strand and the Barnes &
Noble opposite Columbia. - Columbia College
Barack Obama '83 Becomes First College Alumnus To Win Presidency

Barack Obama ‘83 became the first College alumnus to be elected President of the United States. On November 4, Obama defeated his Republican

president. - Columbia College
Columbia article on Obama before he was President...
Is He the New Face of The Democratic Party?

Barack Obama ’83 was sworn in this month as the sole African American in the U.S. Senate, and only the fifth in history. He is the highest-ranking
African-American elected official in the United States. - Columbia
Here's an article Obama wrote as a senior at Columbia that was trashed by a conservative as leftist nonsense:
Young Obama Wrote Article Blaming America For ‘Growing Threat of War’
You won’t find it in his memoir or any of the oodles of words written about him during the campaign, but this reporter has discovered a strikingly
naive article Barack Obama wrote about the anti-war movement as a Columbia University senior in 1983. -
So conservatives have gone from trashing his writings at Columbia as a student, to claiming he never went there.
Do these people think that they are smarter than the entire collective staff and faculty past and present of Columbia college? That if a student who
claimed they graduated from the college lied, that only a fringe group would be able to figure it out?
I highly doubt that.
Trash his record as a president. I may even agree with you.
Just stop with the silly conspiracies because these do nothing but make people look foolish and desperate.
