Below is a list of Barack Obamas friends and roommates who knew him in high school and college.
* Robert McCrary a former classmate at Occidental College. McCrary is now a general manager of a contract sewing company. He saw Obama as "cocky, sometimes arrogant...and not open to others."
* Paul Carpenter Obama's freshman roommate at Occidental and now a Los Angeles lawyer. Carpenter recalls Obama being a "a good bodysurfer", "an athletic guy", and "superbright".
* Margot Mifflin, a friend from Occidental who is now a journalism professor at New York's Lehman College.
* Jon K. Mitchell a friend from Occidental who now plays bass for the country-swing band Asleep at the Wheel.
* Imad Husain a Pakistani and Obama's freshman roommate at Occidental. Husain is now a Boston banker.
* Mohammed Hasan Chandoo a wealthy Pakistani freind of Obama when he was a freshmam. He is a now a self-employed financial consultant living in Armonk, New York.
* Wahid Hamid a wealthy Pakistani freind of Obama when he was a freshmam. Hamid and Obama traveled to Karachi, Pakistan after graduation from Occidental and stayed with the family of Mohammed Hasan Chandoo. Hamid is now a vice president at Pepsico in New York City.
* Vinai Thummalapally an Obama college roommate in the summer of 1980. Thummalapally is from Hyderabad, India. Obama visited Hyderabad, India and Karachi, Pakistan during a three week period with Wahid Hamid after his graduation from Occidental.  He is president of a CD and DVD manufacturing company in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
* Sohale Siddiqi is identified as "Sadik" in Obama's memoir, Dreams From My Father, and is described as "a short, well-built Pakistani" who smoked marijuana, snorted cocaine and liked to party. Siddiqi was from Karachi, Pakistan, and Obama's roommate when he attended Columbia University. Siddiqi was not a student at Columbia and became an illegal having over stay his tourist visa.  Obama knew Saddiqi when he visited Chandoo and Hamid at Occidental. Siddiqi claims Obama stopped using drugs when he arrived at Columbia. Siddiqi is a recovering drug addict and now lives in Seattle working for a community theater.
* Andrew Roth knew Obama at Occidental College and in New York City. Roth said that back then "The thought...never crossed my mind that he would be our first black president."
* Cassandra Butts a friend from law school who now works at the Center for American Progress. Of Obama she said, "People see in him what they want to see."
* Michael Froman a friend from law school and now an executive at Citigroup.
* Laurence Tribe a professor at Harvard who said Obama was one of his two best students. "He had a very powerful ability to synthesize diverse sources of information." 
That is a LOT of Pakistanis.
Translation: Barry, please, please, please nominate me to the Supreme Court. I'll even say you're the best student I ever had.
How cute. A contrived quote after the fact. Barry was such an incredible student that he went down in history as the only editor of the Harvard Review NEVER to have written even a single, solitary law article while it's editor.
Wow, that's a classic example of damning someone with faint praise.
It reminds me of the ambiguous recommendation letters.
So how were his grades?
Obama did not graduate from Occidental. He transferred after his sophomore year.
My understanding is that he wrote an law review “note” defending/promoting abortion.
Obama’s pnly Columbia connection is a rather questionable character himself. Did Obama really attend Columbia?
Very insightful analysis of Tribe’s comment.
What was his LSAT Score? Did he pass the Illinois Bar Exam first time out?
I’d like answers To the above two questions. His grades at Columbia and Harvard are meaningless: aside from odd maverick conservative student, everyone at both schools gets an “A.”
Pastor David Manning has a number of fiery videos where he absolutely does not pull a single punch...
I’m watching and listening to the ‘Sarah Palin Rocks’ video now...
Resume of: B HUSSEIN OBAMA
Proven fake by more than one source
2.) Sketchy childhood
We know some details - Lots of gaps - muslim?
3.) College thesis has vanished
Was it anything like Micheles?
4.) Overseas travel
Pakistan? Why? On what passport?
5.) Law records
What cases did he represent?
6.) Senate records disappeared
What was he trying to hide?
Rev Wright, Ayers, Rezko, Michele etc.
8.) Senate voting record
That speaks for itself
Who would his choices be?
10.) Proven Liar
12.) Racist, Sexist, Radical, Marxist views
His judgement in the people he associates with and his radical/marxist views scare the hell out of me.
Here’s some more of his friends and supporters:
(Weatherman Underground bomber, unrepentant domestic terrorist)
(Member Communist Party USA, Early mentor to Obama)
(Black Liberation militant, racist, and Pastor)
(Corrupt Financier, ties to Terror Financing)

/>The New Black Panther Party
(Black Militant Organization, anti-American and racist)
Hamas Terrorist Organization
(Islamic Terrorist Organisation)
/>More than 80 attorneys for Guantanamo detainees
-who have been offering free-of-charge legal services.
Not surprising that lawyers for Muslim terrorists would support Obama.
/>The Communist Party USA
/>The Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism
/>Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim congressman
/> Sam Graham-Felsen, (Obama campaign’s official blogger)
He spent time in France taking part in labor riots, has written for a socialist magazine, hung a communist flag in his home, and was a fan of Marx while at Harvard.
George Soros’ (slumlord undergoing trial) son, Jonathan Soros, an attorney and financier, recently promoted to deputy manager of Soros Fund Management , is personally involved with MoveOn.org’s activities.
/>Muslim Americans for Obama ‘08
/>The Muslim American Society
/>Obama Supporters for Marijuana Law Reform
“Obama Youth” had as its logo the Islamic crescent and stars (until word got out on the net and they had to clean it up)
/>President Daniel Ortega
..who statee, “It’s not to say that there is already a revolution under way in the U.S. ... but yes, they are laying the foundations for a revolutionary change.”
/>Project Islamic H. O. P. E.
..who displayed Obama as their banner boy until word got out and they had to clean that up.
Obama is no longer there on the site.
/>Rev. Al Sharpton
..obviously supports Obama, but obviously advised to keep it quiet.
Official artist of the Obama posters...remarkable resemblance to Marxist posters
Obama said that he estimated Rezko raised about 50,000 to 60,000 for his political career.
Obama has collected at least $168,308 from Rezko and his circle.
Daughter of Malcomb X
/>The Socialist Party USA
billionaire - anti-Israel master manipulator
They all support, endorse, and/or friends and mentors and advisors of BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.
They all hate America, they all want to destroy America as we know it. They all want the United States to retreat in the war on terror, and they all want to make over the United States into a marxist/socialist/collective nation
Obama’s own core ideology/theology, coincide with these people.
This says all you need to know about Obama.. You can and should judge a man by the company he keeps.
Maybe this explains Obama hands were over his crotch instead of saluting the flag/anthem and refusing to wear the flag pin- claiming to do so was ‘false patriotism’.
Thanks, Im sure the media is right on top of it. ;)
