I would treat him the same way as I would any Presidential candidate. Persoanlly I don't worry a great deal about how many people knew or saw a person back in their college days.
College is but a scrap of a person's life and for most Presidential candidates, is a very very long time ago. I worry more about the prior decadeand what experience they have in politics and management.
In the end, Obama attended college where he said he did just like Bush said he attended where he did. No smoking gun, no conspiracy.
OH how you would be crying FOUL if this were a Republican candidate for prez.... You would call him an introvert and unworthy to hold the office....
I agree with Mod.....what's your point Greek?
Make this your motto and live by it: Fictio Cedit Veritati
The fact is that there were people that remembered Obama such as his roomate Phil Boerner (NY Times 2009)
The Columbia Student Directory has Obama there.
Obama even published an article for the Columbia newspaper called the Sundial.
So yes, Obama did attend Columbia. The only counter for this would be to show that if he wasn't at Columbia all that time..where was he and how can you prove it?
So mod. He went to a few years of college there and NO ONE made friends with him?? NO ONE remembers him attending even one Political Science class??? Come on... Give me a break...
Greek-An education is progressive, not a single event.A law degree isn't just something you get out of a cereal box.Harvard is picky.But, just for grins,say he didn't attend Columbia. Wtf is your point?
Even those who have studied Barack Obama's background in detail don't generally know much about his time at Columbia University, however, as he hasn't revealed much about that period of his life in his public writings and statements, nor has he made his transcripts or other school records from Columbia available for public examination. Obama's reticence about revealing much from this period of his life has given license to a number of related rumors, the most outlandish of them being the claim outlined above that he fabricated this element of his background and didn't really attend Columbia at all.
No conspiracy, just common sense...??
Where did those poverty level people in Guatemola get the $7000 per child to pay those Coyotes to send them to the USA?
"Please explain why him and Michelle had all of their college records sealed??"
There not sealed. No court order was ever given to seal a record. You are more than welcome to prove me wrong. Just make sure you tell us what court did it, the judge presiding and when.
Now there are confidential records and their is nothing unique about a candidate keeping some privacy. George W. Bush never released his grades from Yale.
"Obama’s Selective Service registration is public. A copy has been posted publicly, and the Selective Service confirmed that Obama registered for the draft on Sept. 4, 1980, and was given registration number 61-1125539-1." (factcheck)
In fact I recommend this for all your conspiracy theory needs: w w w.factcheck.o rg/2012/07/obamas-sealed-records/
"And then if the repubs don't say YES YES to the blank check he is gonna rag on them... What leadership"
Leadership also requires those who are willing to be led and not fussy whiners who are out to kiss up to constituents.
"OK what is he TRYING to do??"
Extended child tax credits and marriage-penalty fixes
Expand loan programs for small businesses
Extend the Bush tax cuts for lower incomes
Phase out exemptions and deductions for higher earners
Expand eligibility for Medicaid
Increase the Veterans Administration budget to recruit and retain more mental health professionals
You know...things like that. But your obsession with pool and beer was cute.

Kendall. Please explain why him and Michelle had all of their college records sealed??
And he has stupid people still backing him blindly (that claim they didn't even vote for him HHHAAAA)....
He goes to Texas, comes back and says he needs 3.7 billion to fix it??? Were did he come up with that number??? And then if the repubs don't say YES YES to the blank check he is gonna rag on them... What leadership ???
Chr ist. I have never held a public office at all (unlike he has for 20 years) and I could do better !! I could make a few decisions here and there.
""""1) Obama is not trying to destroy the country""""
OK what is he TRYING to do?? Drinking beer and shooting pool during a border crisis??
He is not trying to do anything. Crisis after crisis he is campaigning and partying and goofing around and then takes to the mike to rag on Republicans... WOW..
Mod can I claim the 5th?
Kun- going back a bit, while again one cannot prove a negative, one can prove the positive counter.
1. Obama is Not Muslim- He is Christian. He attended a christian church for many many years. The Far Right helped established that fact. Obama also declared himself to be a Christian. So it's up to those that think he is Muslim to come up with something solid like Obama praying on a rug in a Mosque or literally saying, "I am Muslim". It hasn't happened and will probably never happen.
2. Obama is not the devil. Really? Do I really have to counter this somehow?
3. Obama is not a Marxist. Obama is the President outr capitalistic based society. The stock market still works. People still make wages. Unions still fight for worker rights. There is still a tax code that is based on a capitalistic formula. So unless you have something else that really shows him to being a Marxist..you got nothing.
It's up to you Kun to prove otherwise. Getting upset doesn't achieve that.
The Far Right fears, literally quakes in their booties at Obama. They make him out to be this imperial tyrant that weilds executive orders like a deadly weapon. Yet the US is still here. So there are only 2 basic possibilites.
1) Obama is not trying to destroy the country and the Far Right are delusional.
2) Obama is trying to destroy America but he isn't good at it, so the Far Right has nothing to worry about.
Which sounds more likely?
