Bob Dylan, Didn’t We Attend The Same Bible Study?

Between 1981 and 1983, Barack Hussein Obama attended Columbia University and almost immediately involved himself in a number of New Left causes, not the least of which was South African divestment. At least that seems to be the conventional wisdom on his self-chronicled yet clandestine pilgrimage to the presidency.

Miracle of miracles, in 2007 the New York Times wrote an article, “Obama’s Account of New York Years Often Differs From What Others Say,” questioning Barack’s rendition of a tale others tell differently. Not to worry, the Times later dropped it like a hot rock. A year later, however, the Wall Street Journal took up the libretto in an op-ed titled “Obama’s Lost Years.”

Both articles focus on the mystery behind the man’s—a man who has taken such arduous pains to chronicle his rise—loss of memory of those three years. Frankly, no one’s gone missing that long since Bob Dylan forgot he’d been a born-again Christian during the 1980s.

What did Barack Obama do during his two years at Columbia and the year immediately after? Who were his friends? What were his interests? We may never know, but we can use his own words—or lack of them—for clues into his activities.

Obama admits in his first of two autobiographies (Sheesh! I have to get busy on mine), that he “carefully” sought out Marxist professors and radicals at Columbia. “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.”

I don’t know about you, but I so completely dug Sid Vicious’ performance poetry.

Ironically, William Ayers was also in the same neck of the woods at the time Barack was at Columbia, studying at Bank Street College, three quarters of a mile up the road. Ironically, up the road from that was a Weather Underground bomb-making factory run by Brinks bomber Kathy Boudin. Ironically, Billy Ayers was also active in South African divestment.

Now, I’m not suggesting for one minute that the 44th President was building bombs at Columbia, but what are the chances that Barack Hussein Obama (mmm, mmm, mmm) didn’t come into contact with these people?

Everyone from Bill O’Reilly to John McCain has played down the suggestion that Obama has always entrenched himself in radical circles, if not given him an outright pass. I understand; they’re afraid of being portrayed as ganging up on the Black kid. Yet we know he has a vague history, most of it reconstructed only in his own writings. And we know he’s gone to great lengths to cover his tracks.

By his own admission Obama hangs with radicals, chooses his friends “carefully.” He’s involved with South African divestment, yet according to the Times he claims to not remember even one of those carefully chosen friends at Columbia.

In 1999, the press went into a feeding frenzy over George W. Bush’s DUI arrest and possible use of cocaine in college. Yet Barry has been off limits almost from day one.

The media did not do its job in vetting this guy, and now the American people are beginning to think they bought a lemon. I don’t know if Obama met Bob Dylan in New York, but they should get together.

  2. They know his past- he used to drink and used drugs too they know who was his friends, the thing is they can’t do a thing
    because we would be accused of racism, the Liberal Democrats like to use this word- the Media, also too many Americans believed
    all his phony promises instead of looking in his accomplisments…there were none, and still they voted for him..will they learned? + the money was pouring.They the people who voted for him are still waiting for the
    promised change. Yes they are seeing one.. but not the one expected.They should have ask me for my opinion..he would not be in the White House.
    He didn’t decide to run at the last moment..the Obamas Lived in Chicago..Oprah lives in Chicago..Were they already friends?
