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 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.

Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best it’s ever been played. 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.

I listened to that interview with Mr Root today and it has to make you go hmmmmm..never even thought of that angle about him being listed as a FOREIGN EXCHANGE student...that and the fact that almost none of his "former classmates" have come forward...maybe there are none

This fact check indicates that Obama wrote an article published in the school paper around March 1983. They did find a couple of people who knew him at Columbia, albeit not many.

However, the fact check does not address the issue of whether he attended these schools as a foreign exchange student. Root speculates that the records would reveal that; and it would mean that Obama lied throughout his college and post-graduate years ... accepting aid for his education based on a misrepresentation ... or his citizenship was never changed back from Indonesian to U.S.
