It’s been a rough week for Barack Obama, with The New York Times saying his administration has lost all credibility, the new EPA scandal, the new NSA scandal, etc. It seems to be all in a week’s work for the President. Things are certainly unraveling quickly. In fact top Democrats are turning on the administration. Today Joe Manchin called for Eric Holder to resign.
Anyway I read a very interesting story in The Blaze tonight and I want to share a short excerpt. This piece was written by Wayne Allyn Root who is technically a former classmate of Obama’s at Columbia, yet he and none of the professors seem to remember him. The Blaze reports:
I was put on Professor Graff’s trail by another Columbia classmate, skeptical about Obama’s story. He told me that Professor Graff had been the speaker for the Class of ’53 last weekend at Columbia. My friend was watching Graff answer questions from the crowd when he was asked about Obama at Columbia. Graff said, “I have my doubts he ever went here.”
I did some digging and located Graff’s home phone number. I called him yesterday. Now retired, he was delighted to hear from me. He agreed to go on the record about Obama. Unlike Obama, Professor Graff clearly remembered me. He was thrilled to hear from his former student. I was in several of Graff’s classes and he remembered me like it was yesterday. He sounded great- like he hasn’t lost any of his trademark sharpness in 30 years since we last met.
I was honored to learn that this legendary historian has been following my political career for many years. But he had no such cheery things to say about the President. Graff said, “I taught at Columbia for 46 years. I taught every significant American politician that ever studied at Columbia. I know them all. I’m proud of them all. Between American History and Diplomatic History, one way or another, they all had to come through my classes. Not Obama. I never had a student with that name in any of my classes. I never met him, never saw him, never heard of him.”
Even more importantly, Professor Graff knew the other history and political science professors. “None of the other Columbia professors knew him either” said Graff.
Graff concluded our interview by saying, “I’m very upset by the whole story. I am angry when I hear Obama called ‘the first President of the United States from Columbia University.’ I don’t consider him a Columbia student. I have no idea what he did on the Columbia campus. No one knows him.”
It is a very interesting article and I would suggest you read it in its entirety. It is full of good information. It raises interesting points about Obama’s college records being sealed and the fact that so few people claim to actually remember his attendance at this Ivy League University.
