So you've been anointed the smartest President in history. Your academic achievements at Columbia and Harvard were extolled during the 2008 campaign. You were the first black to be named editor of the Harvard Law Review. Of course, we're talking about Obama--but with the lack of evidence that has been produced to support these claims, it may as well be you or me.
It leaves us to assume that Obama didn't get good grades. As we know, his ego is one of his strong suits. So, if he were an exemplary student, he would want to tout this with proof.
With the assumption that he didn't get good grades at Occidental College (which he admits in his book that he transferred from because he was going down a path of alcohol and drugs)--how did he gain entrance into Columbia? And, if he didn't get good grades at Columbia, how did he gain entrance into Harvard?
Wayne Allyn Root, who graduated from Columbia at the same time as Obama (although he doesn't recall him even though they had the same major), gives an explanation of how this happened and it makes a lot of sense.
