The following article was written by Wayne Allyn Root and published in yesterday's Personal Liberty Digest:



Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty.

I told you so.

Thirty years ago, Barack Obama, my Columbia University Class of ’83 classmate, was rarely seen. Thirty years later, he can’t be bothered to attend national security meetings about a crisis that could lead to World War III.

Some things never change.

You might ask, “What do Obama’s college days have to do with his Presidency today?” The answer is everything.

By college, a person’s personality, attitude and behavior is usually fairly well set.

That’s why Obama’s Columbia days tell us so much about his behavior as President today.

What do I know about Obama at Columbia? Nothing.

I never met him. As I’ve reported countless times, I was a political science major and pre-law at Columbia from 1979-1983.

Even though I thought I knew everyone in the political science department, neither I nor any of my friends at Columbia ever met or saw Obama there.

At the 30th class reunion last May, I tracked down legendary Columbia history professor and Presidential historian Henry Graff.

For 46 years, all the American political leaders who attended Columbia were in Professor Graff’s classes.

Not Obama. Graff never met him, never saw him, never heard of him.

The problem is Obama defenders and the media (I know, they’re the same) interpreted what I said wrongly.

I never said Obama didn’t attend Columbia. I said he was never in class.

I said while it was strange only one or two students, one professor and one foreign exchange student (who was his roommate off campus) claim to have ever seen him at Columbia, they prove he most probably attended the university.

I’m sure he wouldn’t be the first college student to rarely, if ever, attend classes.

I said he was like “the ghost of Columbia.”

What it means is simple. Obama is exactly the same today as he was as a student at Columbia thirty years ago:arrogant and egotistical.

He’s either too lazy, or he thinks he’s too smart, to have to actually do the work expected of him.

Nothing has changed in 30 years.

I’m sure he was rarely ever in class at Columbia because he had more important things to do.

Besides, he already knew everything.

Obama has always believed Obama is brilliant and better than the rest of us.

What more could Columbia teach him?
It’s the same today.

He rarely attends important meetings.

In the past two weeks, he’s skipped two national security meetings focused on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a crisis that could lead to World War III.

Yet our President chose not to attend.

Do you think this is conservative propaganda or exaggeration?

Hardly. Obama’s absence from both national security meetings was reported by many media, including Reuters.

Why did Obama skip the first meeting?

He chose to attend a White House Film Festival.

Just like during his days at Columbia University, Obama had more important things to do.

Even if Obama isn’t impressed by Russia’s invading Ukraine, certainly he finds America’s jobs crisis important, right?

Wrong. Obama could find no time to meet about the sky-high unemployment in America either.

Even leftist Huffington Post reported in July 2012 that Obama had not convened a meeting of his jobs council in six months.

POLITICO updated the report in January 2013:

Obama never bothered to convene one meeting of his own jobs council in a full year, even with unemployment and underemployment at crisis levels.

Even more remarkable, within two weeks of that story, Obama closed down his jobs council — with 12 million Americans still counted officially as unemployed.

With more than 92 million working-age Americans not working, and men suffering the lowest workforce participation rate since record-keeping began, Obama thought it unimportant to even continue having a jobs council.

So what was important in Obama’s life?

Golf and fundraisers.

PolitiFact.com, the nonpartisan fact checker, confirmed our President golfed 10 times and attended 106 fundraisers during just the original six-month period when he could find no time, or interest, to attend even one meeting of his own jobs council.

Can you imagine the updated numbers for the full year?

And where was he the night of the Benghazi attack?

Both Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey testified Obama was absent that night.

Four brave Americans died while Obama was “absent.”

What could be more important than a U.S. consulate under attack with American lives at stake?

What could be so important that Obama never checked in to ask a question or discuss a rescue attempt from 5:30 p.m. Eastern time until the next morning (when everyone was dead)?

Just like his college days, Obama believes he’s too gifted to do the actual work of President.

He’s just too busy to have to worry about unemployed Americans.

He’s just too important to have to bother to check in every night. Those are all things only “the little people” have to do.

History will show that George W. Bush, the man the leftist media painted as “arrogant, elitist and out of touch,” played 29 rounds of golf as President, until quitting in August of 2003 out of respect for the troops in harm’s way.

Meanwhile, Obama, “the man of the people,” has played 163 rounds of golf and counting, while America is at war, while Russia threatens World War III, while the economy is in shambles, while millions of people have given up hope of ever working again, while record numbers of Americans are living in poverty, while black unemployment is double that of white and while food stamps, welfare, disability and all entitlements soar to record levels.

Nothing has changed since Columbia University — not Obama’s personality, not his attitude, not his behavior.

We have a President who thinks of himself as too smart, too gifted, too important and too busy to give a damn about his job, or the economy, or the American people — either that or he does care. And he’s not in our corner. I’ll let you decide.

I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty.

See you next week. God bless America.

Root also has some very insightful comments on President Obama's poll numbers. In a recent article titled: "Explaining Why Obama's Poll Numbers are Close to Zero Among White Voters," Root says this:

Part I:

"Have you seen Obama’s poll numbers? They are among the lowest in history. As of last week, Obama’s approval rating is at 38%. That’s just barely above Richard Nixon. But that's not the big story here.

Keep in mind that Obama has the support of about 35% to 40% of the population that will NEVER abandon him, no matter what he does, no matter how bad the jobs numbers look, no matter how low the economy goes, no matter how much scandal and corruption is exposed, no matter how strong the facts are against him. Nothing will ever change their minds. These are the “low information voters” of the Democratic Party.

In many cases they love Obama because of the color of his skin- and nothing else. They will never abandon a black President.

Even though black unemployment is at record levels. Even though black youth unemployment is at record levels. Even though black poverty is at record levels.

Even though Obama's exact policies have been in place for over 50 years in Detroit, a majority black city run by black Democrat politicians…and the black population has been devastated, destroyed, and discarded. Left for dead in an abandoned, bankrupt city with very few street lights operating and the police leaving residents in many areas to fend for themselves.

So just think about those poll numbers for a moment. Let those numbers sink in. If 35% to 40% of the population would support a Democrat for President if he ran from a prison cell…if 35% to 40% would support Obama no matter what he does, no matter how far America sinks under his leadership, even if they have no jobs and their own lives are in total misery...how could Obama’s approval rating be at only 38%?

That means that among the rest of America, outside of loyal, lifelong, Kool-Aid drinking Democrats, Obama's ratings are nil. Among voters who don't identify as Democrat, he is the lowest-rated President in history. No numbers like this have ever been recorded, if you filter out the Kool Aid drinking low information and partisan voters.

Obama's approval among “the Heartland of America” (middle class Americans) is lower than Nixon. Lower than W. Lower than Lyndon Johnson at the height of the Vietnam war. Lower than Jimmy Carter at the height of the Iranian hostage crisis, with the added burden of an economy in misery and malaise."

sebekm commented on Thursday, Mar 20, 2014 at 18:03 PM

Part II:

"I’m betting that outside of lifelong Democrats and welfare recipients (I know, I repeat myself), Obama's ratings are in the unimaginable range of single digits.

I'm betting that outside of food stamp recipients, Obama's ratings are in the single digits.

Among the white middle class, I’m betting Obama’s ratings are in the single digits. Or lower.

Keep in mind many of the white middle class originally voted for Obama. He could not have been elected without white support.

Among those that actually own small businesses, pay most of the taxes and create most of the jobs, I'm betting Obama's ratings are in the vicinity of ZERO.

Actually if you take the white middle class and subtract out a few Ivy League intellectuals, Hollywood liberals, and pathetic Upper West Side of Manhattan Democratic zombies, there are few Obama supporters left to be found anywhere in America.

Remember that about 47% of Americans get entitlement checks from government. Obama is PAYING for their support and he still only has 38% approval. You know you're unpopular when even bribes don't work anymore!

This man has managed to pull off something remarkable and historical- he has alienated almost every single American who actually works for a living and pays taxes- outside of Chicago, Manhattan, Hollywood and Detroit. He has virtually zero support among the 53% who aren't getting a check from government. You can't find another instance of that in the history of American politics.

Obama is amazing!"

sebekm commented on Thursday, Mar 20, 2014 at 18:04 PM

Part III:

"I do want to answer my critics whose only response will be…"all of these white voters who don't support Obama are racists. It's all about race."

First of all, the very definition of racism is voting for a black candidate because...he's black. That's racism. The fact that 92% of black voters voted for Obama and 96% of black women voted for Obama is nothing but voting based on race.

As far as white voters abandoning Obama in droves, I've yet to meet one white voter who bases it on the color of Obama's skin. We all base it on the color of his policies. The color of his policies is red- as in communist red. We hate his policies, not the man and not the color of his skin.

We hate the record-setting $12 trillion in debt he'll have piled up by the time his second term is finished- because Obama has ruined the future of America with that debt. And he's ruined our children's future quality of life with that debt.

We hate Obama's big tax increases for the middle class and small business...and the fact that those tax increases haven't helped the economy, or created new jobs because the money was handed to Obama's voters and donors- for more entitlements, more welfare, more food stamps, bailouts, stimulus and wasted failing green energy "investments."

We hate the fact that Obama has killed millions of jobs. We hate the fact that the economy is in ruins under his leadership- except for Wall Street. Of course Wall Street goes up because Obama has directed the Fed to print trillions in fake dollars to make his biggest donors richer than they ever imagined.

We hate the fact that Obama ruined the finest healthcare system in the world, that about 80% of Americans were happy with in the first place. We hate the fact that he is a liar and fraud, who promised "if you like your health insurance, you can keep it." Now we either don't have insurance, or our prices have been raised through the roof. He has damaged our lives beyond belief. The color of his skin has nothing to do with it. But the facts have everything to do with it.

Over the years I hated the policies of George McGovern and Jimmy Carter. They were both white. So did that mean I hated whites? Today I hate the policies of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Does that mean I hate Italians and Mormons? I hate the policies of Hillary Clinton. Does that mean I hate women? I hate the policies of Congresswoman Debbie Shultz Wasserman and Senator Chuck Schumer. Does that mean I hate Jews? Well guess what? I'm Jewish. There goes that argument."

sebekm commented on Thursday, Mar 20, 2014 at 18:06 PM

Part IV:

"And I hate the policies of Joe Biden. Does that mean I hate idiots? I'm just kidding…kind of.

The point is in every case, it's the politics and policies that we hate. Not the person, or the race. So the argument is just plain misleading, fraudulent and stupid.

It all comes down to common sense. White middle class Americans are suffering because of the policies of a incompetent, fraudulent, lying Marxist. And we're not in delusion and denial, simply because we're not blinded by the color of his skin. The fact is we don't care about the color of his skin. So we can see the plain truth.

That's why Obama's poll numbers are amazing. That's why among Americans who are NOT Kool Aid drinkers blinded by the color of his skin, Obama's poll numbers are the lowest in history."

The above comments ARE full of "color" and hyperbole, but the facts are undeniable. When the approval number is at 38%, it IS by-and-large only the core constituency and black voters who are still supporting him. Do the math.

When Obama was elected, I, too HOPEd for CHANGE. But he had to PROVE it to me because I voted for the other guy. The only thing he has proved is that he is unwilling or unable to govern in a way that keeps the best interests of ALL the people at the top of the agenda.

Those who couldn't get health insurance because of pre-existing conditions might think that Obama was elected to give them that coverage. Those who are gay or who smoke dope may think that Obama was elected to allow them to marry or to legally "dope themselves up." Those people are a small slice of the population of this country, and what this President has forgotten (or didn't care about in the first place) was that he was elected to serve ALL the people - not just his "core constituencies."

If the GOP momentum continues, that message will be driven home this November at the ballot box.

SEBE. Reading all of your posts like this one brings on low blood sugar in me?

BTW: Do you agree or disagree with my anaology that when I say that Funk is my main nigga that YOU are my favorite YANKEE?(see Sherman's
total war march through Georgia for reference)

Are not 'words' like nigger and Yankee, patronizing words of insult and denigration?
Would you Sebe find my words calling you my favorite Yankee OK?

"Do you agree or disagree with my anaology that when I say that Funk is my main nigga that YOU are my favorite YANKEE?"

Not sure.

"Are not 'words' like nigger and Yankee, patronizing words of insult and denigration?"

Perhaps.

"Would you Sebe find my words calling you my favorite Yankee OK?"

Actually, yes.

I really don't care what you call me as long as you don't call me late for dinner. But seriously - after all - in many cases it's all in the "implied intent," isn't it? That's the point Funky makes in another blog. When the caller and the recipient "understand" that no insult is intended, then no offense is taken. I get that. But the counter-argument is that observers may not understand the "rules of this game," resulting in violent happenings when they try to mimic some seemingly "harmless" dialogue.
