Is advising governor Romney to hit back by demanding that the anointed one unseal he is.
College transcripts now Wayne Allen group graduated the same year as Barack Obama.
-- even shared the same major as the future president but.
-- claims that neither he nor his classmates ever met saw or heard of Barack Obama during the years of Columbia.
And joining us now as we continue to -- the president here on Hannity and unveil.
Help unveil Obama's college years it's -- -- roadway welcomed the New York the -- of the libertarian VP candidate.
Yes I was in 2008 actually -- on the presidential ticket against.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now it's interesting because -- -- Everybody that you know from New Year's same -- same -- same exact nature pre law and and by the -- poly -- or whatever was.
-- -- nobody nobody knew him not one person saw him.
Heard of him.
I was a pretty -- connected guy knew a lot of people I knew pretty much everyone I thought of political science department.
-- never -- I never saw I never heard of them know -- that I know what Columbia ever met him ever heard of them or ever saw him.
It's strange it's mysterious doesn't -- to go there by the way.
-- -- went there but he's probably busy smoking pot.
And -- socialist meetings -- can I tell you are but the Wall Street Journal in 2000 inmates you know they randomly I guess called Warner people are how many how many Glenn -- and every class so I mean -- could be how many thousands.
What well the whole class was 700 students I figure class of 83 Columbia about 700 I figure political science pre law.
Maybe 202 -- -- fifty like I said.
I -- pretty familiar with most of them never heard of -- but you know I'm doubting that he went there and we're not suggesting any such thing either I know you have a challenge in.
You you think there is a response.
Which I think is just another one of these distractions which is release -- tax returns if he releases tax returns and it has been weeks poring over and and making issue that a nonissue so well -- they can't win.
But you're saying he can't.
If he does what yeah I I think he needs to -- around I think it was me under attack I would say.
Why are Obama's record sealed in college almost his entire life -- protected lawyers billions of dollars spent.
To keep them under under lock and key under wrap and why if he got good grades at Columbia but then there's no -- show -- that he got bad grades.
Who -- Shaw and so he's the president United States he got to see -- who cares there's something.
Stranger you know them and odds maker in Las Vegas somehow gut instinct guy.
Cannot tell you what I put the pieces together I felt queasy about this for four years there's something not right about Obama's record at Columbia University.
That -- just in the spirit of Harry Reid that you know might anonymous source said that he hasn't paid taxes than ten years or.
You know the insinuation.
By cutter that that Romney's a felon -- The truth team member in Virginia that suggests that Romney's a racist org and now the new -- that suggest he might be a murderer.
But this poor woman and cancer.
And that fact that Republicans won thirty of their air and water.
Why don't we you know what is your speculation here are you saying what would these records show except maybe -- a bad stood.
Well first of all let's get to by trade I think -- should say I'll give up my tax returns.
For the last ten years if you'll give up all of your unsealed all of -- sealed records when we're -- -- to find out.
Well I listen my hunch is how to get it to Columbia -- bad grades at occidental which which everyone occidental says the guy was not a good student.
How to get to Harvard Law School if he -- records -- he's afraid.
A bit -- to Columbia had to get the Harvard hadn't paid for expensive schools like occidental like Columbia like Harvard.
All very strange stories and and my gut instinct says there's an easy track.
That gets you into an Ivy -- school that you'll have to compete like a guy like me.
I was -- -- sort of my high school top one half of 1% SAT scores.
You don't have to do that of -- far -- Exchange.
Student -- they're looking for diversity -- and that's it easy way to get into an Ivy League school it changes the whole ball game.
It levels the field.
If you look at for a guy from Indonesia.
And you happen -- bad grades but -- -- good talker -- a good interviewer and you got a great exotic store equipment similar in Lebanon so in the spirit of Harry Reid.
You're saying to Obama what Reid as saying two to -- -- truly -- say is that we asserted yeah and listen and -- I'll be honest I don't know it's a gut instinct but again.
Harry Reid doesn't make predictions for a living I do I look at clues and I come to conclusions.
Something doesn't smell right at Columbia.
If it's just grades why that until your records mr.
But if it's something else should the American people have a right to see that I've never been a -- -- I thought the delaying release in the persons of it was -- thing but there's your challenge former libertarian vice presidential candidate are you voting for Romney.
Listen I'm a libertarian which -- on the Gary Johnson guy but I don't have anything for Obama.
Half of the -- Obama shot I'm a capitalist of the Angeles that a small -- that I have to notify Obama.
I had -- -- that Obama has -- wrecked this economy I appreciate you being with us thanks so much.
