So why didn’t they just show this in the beginning? We knew all about President Bush’s college years and his single, drinking years, and his married years, etc… Why is this President so secretive about his college years?
Check out this article at Breitbart.com:
The image above–never before released–is from public records at Columbia University that prove that Obama did, in fact, graduate in 1983 from the Ivy League school. Contrary to some conspiracy theories, Obama was a student within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences–not the less selective, “nontraditional” Columbia University School of General Studies (which only merged with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences in 1990).
This never-before-seen document debunks a persistent myth that is unfairly unfavorable to the President.
Some “fact-checking” websites–such as snopes.com andFactCheck.org–have attempted to debunk the “Obama never graduated Columbia” conspiracy theory before. Yet they have relied almost entirely on secondary sources and mainstream media reports, which fail to cite primary sources. And the Obama campaign has not provided details of his admission to, or graduation from, the prestigious Ivy League school.
Crucially, Obama has refused to release his college transcripts from Columbia and Occidental College, which certainly do exist. Other candidates–such as George W. Bush–released their transcripts, though their grades were not necessarily flattering.

***UPDATE at end of post***
I was reading an article from Breitbart.com when I realized the same thing the author did. Sandra Fluke has a plan. She’s made herself a victim, when she is obviously no such thing. Now I know many are coming out of the woodwork condemning Rush Limbaugh for his comments about Fluke being a “slut” and a “prostitute”. His example was that if we pay someone for sex they’re a slut or a prostitute. I don’t think he was necessarily calling Ms. Fluke a slut. She was explaining to congress why she feels the American tax payers should pay for her contraception so she could have sex.
Let’s be honest, this has nothing to do with women’s health. They want religious organizations to go against their beliefs and teachings to offer free contraception for their employees and students. Look, if you want your insurance to cover contraception, or to supply it at no cost to you, work or go to school somewhere else. I, as a taxpayer, don’t want to pay for anyone else’s birth control choices and therefore, their ability to have as much sex as they want. If you don’t want to get pregnant, you could try just not having sex until you can afford your own contraception.
Now, as to the plan I believe Ms. Fluke has and I found in the following article. Does anyone else think it’s strange that President Obama called Ms. Fluke in person to console her over big, bad Rush Limbaugh’s comments. I didn’t think sitting president’s did that sort of thing.
Here’s the part of the article by LEE STRANAHAN I found particularly interesting:
However, Ms. Fluke pulled back the curtain midway through her interview on “The View” when she suggested that viewers head over to the website of Media Matters for America. As The Daily Caller recently exposed, there’s been a high level of coordination between the White House and Media Matters for America, so of course it’s no shock that Ms. Fluke chose MMFA as her leftist propaganda arm of choice.
One of Media Matters’s main jobs has been shutting down right wing media voices were ever possible. They want a world with no Breitbart.com, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh or any dissenting voices in the run-up to the 2012 election. The level of coordination should concern anyone because it’s the president using his position and bully pulpit as a way to quell criticism by utilizing the Institutional Left’s infrastructure.
Of course, The View is a perfectly fair and balanced source on the subject since they have Elizabeth Hasselback as their resident conservative. She had not heard Rush Limbaugh’s statements before viewing the heavily edited video clip shown on The View but her gut reaction was “repulsed.”
I don’t know if you’ve read the series in The Daily Caller about Media Matters and their close association with the White House and MSNBC. I read it and it makes a great case for MSNBC and the White House working together to bring down or silence President Obama’s critics. It was amazing how far Media Matters for America (MMFA) was willing to go to bring down the administration’s perceived enemies.
The Daily Caller also talks about how after something showed up on MMFA, it was being used almost word for word on MSNBC by their various hosts. Once it started on MSNBC daytime, by nighttime, they would be quoting it as fact. In fact, they were stating it as fact on daytime too.
This is why when I first saw on all the blogs about Ms. Fluke suggesting people read MMFA, I was suspicious. Is it a coincidence that she received the phone call from the President while waiting in the green room for her appearance on Andrea Mitchell’s show? Andrea Mitchell finds any way she can to talk about the all-knowing, all-seeing President Obama. She couldn’t wait to ask Ms. Fluke about her phone call from the President.
