Wayne Allyn RootHe has some ideas about Obama’s hidden school records

When a Columbia classmate challenges Obama, it is worth a read.

Wayne Allyn Root, a former classmate of Barack Obama at Columbia University, Class of ’83, has his own ideas about why Obama has spent millions to hide his Columbia records from prying eyes. Root, one of Las Vegas’ star oddsmakers, says:

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.

Root is well aware of how the nasty Obama-Axelrod style Chicago politics works. He says,

Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask followers like Senator Harry Reid to chase the lead. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader appears to now be making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant, and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.

Of course this is the same strategy-of-personal-destruction that Obama has used to win virtually all his elections. It’s simple: He slanders his opponents through insinuations and leaks designed to ruin their reputation and character. At the same time, they are so busy defending all the bogus lies Obama throws at them, they have little time to press Obama for the real issues like his sealed school and health records.

As this is being written, Obama continues to push Romney to release more tax records, thereby insinuating that Romney has something to hide. Yet Obama himself has been hiding massive amounts of important information for years. Then Obama henchmen like U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, and the ever-willing Obama Media, step up the attacks on the bogus Romney Tax issue while ignoring Obama’s much more serious issue of his sealed records.

Root says,

My answer for Romney? Call Obama’s bluff. Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago that you are afraid to let America’s voters see? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.

Root guesses that Obama will never release his records because they would destroy his chances of re-election. He predicts,

Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.

Root adds that not only did he not know Obama at Columbia, but he didn’t know anyone else who knew him.

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 have ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.

The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of Root’s Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.

After all these years, the media continues to ignore the very large question: Why would Barack Obama spend millions of dollars to hide something from us? But perhaps the larger question is: Why do we the people let Obama and the media get away with it?

It gets worse. Obama has not only sealed his Columbia records—he has sealed all his records all the way back to his high school days in Hawaii and his stint at Occidental College!

Of course other questions logically flow from the huge cloak of secrecy Obama has wrapped around his past. For example: Is he hiding his school records because of poor grades? If so, how did he manage to get into an Ivy League school? If his Columbia grades were poor, how did get into Harvard? – Yes, those records are sealed too. How did he pay for his costly schooling? If he did it with scholarships, he would have needed good grades.

Wayne Allyn Root has some ideas:

“Here’s my gut belief: Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. But did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? When he returned to live with his grandparents in Hawaii or as he neared college-age preparing to apply to schools, did he ever change his citizenship back? I’m betting not.

If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:

A) He rarely ever attended class.

B) His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.

C) He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.

D) He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.

If you think I’m “fishing” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of?

If it’s okay for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to go on a fishing expedition about Romney’s taxes (even though he knows absolutely nothing about them, nor will he release his own), then I think I can do the same thing. But as Obama’s Columbia Class of ’83 classmate, at least I have more standing to make educated guesses.

It’s time for Mitt to go on the attack and call Obama’s bluff.”

I’m with you, Mr. Root. It’s time “Mr. Transparency” comes clean and it’s way past the time for the corrupt Obama Media to clean up their act and start serving the American people and the interests of their nation.

NOTE: Obama supporters like to point out that, technically, the school records are not “sealed.” Apparently no court of law has officially sealed them. Of course this does not change the fact that the records are still confidential and unavailable to the public. Also, according to one source Mr. Obama did release a summary of his medical records in which his personal physician “… pronounced him to be in ‘excellent health …’”

What do you think? We want to know.
