Exclusive: The VettingóDid Obama Have Lower SAT Scores Than George W. Bush?
Breitbart ^ | 05/22/2012 | Charles C. Johnson

Breitbart News has learned that the transfer class that entered Columbia College in the fall of 1981 with Obama was one of the worst in recent memory, according to Columbia officials at the time.

A Nov. 18, 1981 article in the Columbia Spectator, “Tight Housing Discourages Transfer Applications to CC,” written by student Jeremy Feldman and quoting admissions officials, reported: “On paper at least, the quality of the students accepted [as transfers] has declined along with the number of applicants, the officials say.”

Feldman, quoting Robert Boatti, Assistant Dean of Admissions, as well as the late college Dean Arnold Collery, continued:

Boatti also attributed the drop in transfer application to the College’s policy of requiring transfer students to take courses in its core curriculum and to the limited availability of financial aid for them.

He added a “majority” of the transfers come here from college in the New York area. Many come from community colleges, rather than the nation’s top schools.

“Even the unhappiest people don’t transfer from Harvard,” Boatti said.

In grades and other indicators of academic performance, the crop of transfer applicants “doesn’t stand out the way they did before,” [Dean Arnold] Collery said.

Boatti confirmed Collery’s observations. …

Hafrican SAT scores are worth 1.8 times white and white-hispanic scores, so its probably a wash.

Does anyone know what a 1/32 Cherokee score is worth?

Obama claims to have graduated Summa Cum Laude but can’t prove he went to class. He admits his last two years of high school were a daze because he was stoned and drunk, yet he was admitted to college, apparently without taking SATs.

Obama sealed his school records so no one can see his grades, writings, or attendance status. Has anybody investigated archived newspapers in the areas Obama went to school to see if he ever was listed on an honor roll or dean’s list? I know a Reverend Manning investigated Barack Obama’s or Barry Soetoro’s attendance at Columbia and could not find one piece of evidence that he ever attended Columbia. They, interviewed staff, searched yearbooks, referenced excerpts from “Dreams of My Father” and found addresses Obama said he lived at during his attendance didn’t even exist. An Obama identified classmate friend (Phil Bonner) at Columbia was found to never have attended the school. Does Obama have a bad memory or is he just a fraudulent liar?

Breitbart News has established nothing except that it knows what we want to hear. This is bad for credibility.

Given Breitbart's history, it may be the bait to get the liberal defense media to have a scoff party and have Jon Stewart softshoe some snidery, before they produce the results.

Or, also possible, is that Breitbart has his SATs, but not legally. Then they can only use the information to rattle and taunt.

” Did Obama Have Lower SAT Scores Than George W. Bush?

I would literally bet my life savings on it... “

Make that two life savings on it....Obama without a teleprompter is a near-illiterate stuttering, stammering jackass.

Obama’s main problem is ignorance. He is reasonably smart but there is no way his SAT’s were higher than Bush’s. If his SAT’s were respectable he would have released them and done a victory lap long ago. They are almost certainly embarrassing and will remain under lock and key.

Sorry, this is not possible, unless Obama took 32 courses in basket weaving. Obama is not very bright.

Did he have to take TOEFL (since he was probably claiming foreign student status)?

Who is required to take the TOEFL? Isn't it incoming international students and students whose primary language is other than English? Did the TOEFL even exist then?

Things that make one go hmmmmm?? could the presence of this type of test be the reason all scores are sealed?

Actually, he wouldn't be required to take the TOEFL, since he graduated from an American high school - even if he was a foreign student.

But, it would be interesting to find out if he did claim foreign student status...

A University is a collection of Colleges though often the colleges are not named differently. The University of Chicago has an undergraduate college within it called The College of the University of Chicago, grad students are not in the College but are in the University. Columbia University has Columbia College for undergraduates within its umbrella.

So there are one and the same but not really.

Oh, I am betting that The Disaster NEVER took an SAT or the ACT.

The money came from a Saudi and was arranged through Percy Sutton.

We haven't even seen a list of the courses he took. We can only guess.

Does Obama have a bad memory or is he just a fraudulent liar?

How about both? He can't seem to say more than a few words without looking at his written statement when he comes to the Rose Garden to speak from a podium. If lying can be defined as "an attempt to deceive" he is surely a liar.

Does anyone know if there’s a precedent to a president issuing a similar EO blanket sealing their medical, school and other records?

I took the SAT for my brother - no problem. Got him onto the U. They thought he should take up engineering. He was a libo and voted for Oboma(now regrets it).
