Hey Mitt Romney – “Call Obama’s Bluff”

by  on August 6, 2012 with 29 Comments in News
Fantastic column by Wayne Allen Root urges Mitt Romney to easily turn the tables on the Obama campaign by simply agreeing to release more tax returns (Romney has already released more than is legally required of him)  if Barack Obama will in turn let the American public view those sealed college records that he has spent so much time and expense keeping hidden.  Remember the story from mere months ago that detailed how Obama’s own self-published biographical summarystated he was a foreign student?  The mainstream media quickly covered that as a simple publishing “error” – even though that error had been republished several times over for over a decade – an error that Barack Obama himself never bothered to correct – until he was running for President of the United States.

I urge readers to click on the below link for the entire column.  Like Wayne Allen Root, I too have often wondered if the key to uncovering the truth about who Barack Obama really is – and isn’t, can be found within those hidden away college transcripts of his.  Know this readers – Obama has not disclosed ANY of his college records.  Not his grades, not the courses he took, not his financial aid records – NOTHING.  Why is that?  Such a question is not simple conspiracy nonsense – it’s a very basic request by the American people to know who is this man calling himself Obama – and why has he made such an effort to keep that past hidden from public view?
I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his collegerecords. 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.
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 collegerecords from 29 years ago, that you are afraid to let America’s voters see it? 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.
My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.
Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.
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 has ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
But don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.
… 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 a 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 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.    LINK
