This came from a union guy in Chicago who didn't vote for Obama. Very curious perspective that I never thought of in this light.

It will be interesting to see what they put in his "Presidential Library" about his early years, when he is out of office.

In a country where we take notice of many, many facets of our public figures' lives, doesn't seem odd that there's so little we know about our current president, Barack Obama.

For example, we know that Andrew Jackson's wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery; Abe Lincoln never went to school; Jack Kennedy wore a back brace; Harry Truman played the piano.

As Americans, we enjoy knowing details about our newsmakers, but none of us know one single humanizing fact about the history of our own president.

We are all aware of the lack of uncontestable birth records for Obama; that document managing has been spectacularly successful.

There are however, several additional oddities in Obama's history that appear to be as well managed as the birthing issue.

One other unusual item... there are no birth certificates of his daughters that can be found?

It is strange that no one who ever dated him has shown up. The charisma that caused women to be drawn to him so strongly during his campaign, certainly would, in the normal course of events, lead some lady to come forward, if only to garner some attention for herself. We all know about JFK's magnetism, that McCain was no monk and quite a few details about Palin's courtship and even her athletic prowess. Joe Biden's aneurisms and hair plugs are no secret; look at Cheney and Clinton, we know about their heart problems. Certainly Wild Bill Clinton's exploits before and during his White House years, were well known. That's why it's so odd, that not
one lady has stepped up and said, "He was so-oo shy..." or "What a great dancer..."

It's virtually impossible to know anything about this fellow.

Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there. Then check groomsmen.

Then get the footage of the graduation ceremony. Has anyone talked to the professors? It is odd that no one is bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.

When did he meet Michele, and how? Are there photos? Every president gives to the public all their photos, etc. for their library. What has he released? And who in hell voted for him to be the most popular man in 2010? Doesn't this make you wonder?

Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from President Obama's past saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend and so on?

Not one person has ever come forward from his past.

It certainly is very, very intriguing.

This should be a cause for great concern. To those who voted for him, you may have elected an unqualified, inexperienced shadow man. Have you seen a movie named "The Manchurian Candidate"

As insignificant as each of us might be, someone with whom we went to school will remember our name or face, someone will remember we were the clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something
about us.

George Stephanopoulos of ABC News said the same thing during the 2008 campaign. He questions why no one has acknowledged the president was in their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on campus. Stephanopoulos also was a classmate of Obama at Columbia -- the class of 1984. He says he never had a single class with him.

If he is such a great orator, why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class remember him? Why won't he allow Columbia to release his records?

Nobody remembers Obama at Columbia University.

Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there... but none remembered him.

Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a Political Science major at Columbia, who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root said of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him and they all know me. I don't
have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia, ever."

Nobody recalls him. Root adds that he was also, like Obama, Class of '83 Political Science, and says, "You don't get more exact or closer than that. Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of, as we say in New York , 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him."

Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia.

Some other interesting questions:

Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002?
It is said there is no record of him ever taking the Bar exam.

Why was Michelle's law license inactivated by court order?
We understand that was forced, in order to avoid criminal fraud charges.

It is circulating that, according to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama, but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases connected to him.

The Social Security number he uses now, originated in Connecticut, where he is never reported to have lived. It was originally registered to another man (Thomas Louis Wood) from Connecticut, who died in Hawaii while on vacation there.

As we all know, Social Security Numbers are only issued 'once, they are not re-used'

No wonder all his records are sealed!

Please continue sending this out to everyone. Somewhere, someone had to know him in school...before he "reorganized" Chicago and burst upon the Scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention.

The first link I want to post, Van, is this priceless commercial. This is what I forward to all the people who come to me with junk medical advice that they read on the internet.

..... French Model Commercial (CC) Full-length

That said... This has all the feeling of one of those viral internet letters. One in fact was about a person that I personally knew and worked for me.

..... Claim: Smithsonian Malibu Barbie

He himself started the letter as a joke, and it went crazy.

So where do I go, but to Snopes. This is what I found.

..... Claim: Barack Obama did not attend Columbia University.

This seems to explain it.

Barack Obama isn't very friendly and hates being around people. This is well documented. His "speaking ability" amounts to reading off a teleprompter, and having a very good sense of cadence and tone. I in fact tell people ALWAYS to read his speeches before listening to them. You get a very different impression. Meanwhile ask the man to speak off the cuff, and he's a terrible speaker.

While I'd love to lambast him for being "inhuman" (because I want to and I hate the man's politics), the truth is that Thomas Jefferson was the same way. He was more comfortable in one-on-one settings, and hated public forums. When president he even had others present his State of the Union Addresses. He is immortalized not for his oratory skills, but for his ability to conceptualize and to capture priceless ideas in his writing.

I attended the University of Kentucky at the same time as Ashley Judd and we both minored in Anthropology, a small department with not many course offerings each semester and a fairly structured set of requirements for the degree. Odds are good that we were in the same class at least once, heck for all I know we sat right next to each other and talked every class or worked together on team projects. Do I remember her? I wish, then I could brag. If we were in classes together, she made no impression on me at the time...but has since.

Thanks, Scott.

Those who disagree with a man's politics should be very careful before engaging in argumentum ad hominem. When accusations are discredited, then the opposing point of view loses as well. It's best to stay on task and focus on policy and principles.
