Wayne Allyn Root Needs To Crawl Back In His Hole!!!

Wayne Root Gets Nailed

Wayne Suddenly Found Himself In A Box, With No Wiggle Room

The Barackryphal Blog has so thoroughly discredited Birther Wayne Allyn Root, that he ought to be ashamed to show his face. Except maybe in New York City, where he might have a chance to be mayor. Meanwhile, you got to read this:

Wayne Allyn Root’s Columbia Conspiracism, Part 1

Wayne Allyn Root, who was the Libertarian Party’s candidate for Vice President in 2008*, has continued to occasionally pop up on the Birther radar in the last four years, typically espousing arguments and accusations that Barack Obama’s Columbia University education is somehow…suspicious. Root, who graduated from Columbia in 1983 like Obama, has floated multiple theories, while being seemingly reluctant to commit to any one. But is this suspicion about Obama something that Root has always felt? Or did it only appear, suddenly, right before the 2008 election?

This question get answered in spades, with more than 10 examples of Root’s statements before becoming an active Birther. And the best part of all, is that this is just Part 1!!! I can hardly wait for the sequel!

BREAKING!!! Wayne Allyn Root Once Bragged That Obama Was His Classmate!!!

It Was Her Job To Turn The Tables

Birther Wayne Allyn Root, who has claimed numerous times that he did not remember President Obama from Columbia University, once had a better memory. What follows is a scrolled screensave where Mr. Root  PROUDLY brags:

A college classmate of Barack Obama at Columbia University (Class of ’83), Wayne is now the face and voice of Libertarian-conservative politics in the mainstream national media- with thousands of media appearances since the 2008 election. In each of those appearances he is a dynamic and passionate fighter on behalf of small business owners, taxpayers, entrepreneurship, capitalism, free markets, and dramatically lower taxes to reward the heroes of the business world- financial risk takers.

For those of you who are not familiar with Root’s numerous claims that he did not remember Obama being in his class here is just one such example:

I am a graduate of Columbia University, Class of 1983. That’s the same class Barack Obama claims to have graduated from. We shared the same exact major- Political Science. We were both Pre Law. It was a small class- about 700 students. The Political Science department was even smaller and closer-knit (maybe 150 students). I thought I knew, or met at least once, (or certainly saw in classes) every fellow Poly Sci classmate in my four years at Columbia.

But not Obama. No one ever met him. Even worse, no one even remembers seeing that unique memorable face. Think about this for a minute. Our classmate is President of the United States. Shouldn’t someone remember him? Or at least claim to remember him?

One of the speakers at the 30th reunion should have reminisced about “my days with the future President.” But no one did. You’d think Obama might have sent a video to tell us all how much he enjoyed his time at Columbia. You’d think he’d have sent at least a letter to be read aloud from one of his former college buddies. Right? But he didn’t. Because Obama has no former college buddies. No one that ever met Obama, let alone befriended him, was in attendence at our 30th class reunion.

So, what gives??? Does Root’s memory come and go in a ghostly fashion? Does he have selective memory?  Who knows. I just report. You decide.

Note 1. The Image. This is from the 1945 Hitchcock classic movie, Spellbound. About which Wiki says:

The film opens with Shakespeare’s proverb, and words on the screen announcing that its purpose is to highlight the virtues of psychoanalysis in banishing mental illness and restoring reason.

Dr. Constance Petersen is a psychoanalyst at Green Manors, a mental hospital in Vermont, and is perceived by the other (male) doctors as detached and emotionless. The director of the hospital, Dr. Murchison, is being forced into retirement, shortly after returning from an absence due to nervous exhaustion. His replacement is the much younger Dr. Anthony Edwardes.

Dr. Petersen notices that there is something strange about Dr. Edwardes. He has a peculiar phobia about seeing sets of parallel lines against a white background, first displayed after seeing a diagram drawn with the tines of a fork on a tablecloth. Dr. Petersen soon realizes, by comparing handwriting, that this man is an impostor and not the real Dr. Edwardes. He confides to her that he killed Dr. Edwardes and took his place. He suffers from massive amnesia and does not know who he is. Dr. Petersen believes that he is innocent and suffering from a guilt complex.

‘Dr. Edwardes’ disappears during the night, having left a note for Dr. Petersen that he is going to the Empire State Hotel in New York City. It becomes public knowledge that ‘Dr. Edwardes’ is an impostor, and that the real Dr. Edwardes is missing and may have been murdered.

Dr. Petersen goes to the Empire State Hotel, knowing that the police are in pursuit. She uses her psychoanalytic skills to unlock his amnesia and find out what had really happened. One of Hitchcock’s characteristic innocent-person-pursued-by-the-police evasions ensues, as Dr. Petersen and the impostor (who now calls himself ‘John Brown’) travel by train to Rochester, to meet Dr. Brulov, who had been Dr. Petersen’s teacher and mentor.

The two doctors analyze a dream that ‘John Brown’ had. The dream sequence (designed by Salvador Dali) is full of psychoanalytic symbols—eyes, curtains, scissors, playing cards (some of them blank), a man with no face, a man falling off a building, a man hiding behind a chimney dropping a wheel, and wings. They deduce that Brown and Edwardes had been on a ski trip together (the lines in white being ski tracks) and that Edwardes had somehow died there. Dr. Petersen and Brown go to the Gabriel Valley ski resort (the wings provide a clue) to reenact the event and unlock his repressed memories.

Birther Wayne Allyn Root: Failing His Way To Repress???

Wayne Allen Rasputin 2

He Discovered That Failure Wasn’t Quite The Joy It Was Cracked Up To Be!

Hmmm, what an interesting story! It seems that BIRTHER Wayne Allyn Root is upset that he is being called a Birther. So upset that he is trying to force a retraction from Nevada Blogger Jon Ralston. Here are a few excerpts from the story:

Wayne Allyn Root is upset.

Root, scheduled this weekend to be an “honored guest” with the No. 3 man in the House, Sen. Dean Heller and Rep. Joe Heck, has demanded I retract the “libelous” claim that he is a birther. I raised the issue in advance of House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy’s trip to Las Vegas on Saturday to appear at a major GOP event.

Root, through his lawyer, who has an interesting history of his own (I’ll get to that), says he is not a birther, even has declared himself not to be one, so I must correct the record. Or else, I suppose.

Well, I don’t like being called an obnoxious jerk, but some people may think so and they have every right to say so. Root and his lawyer may not understand the concept of the First Amendment, commentary on public figures and protected political speech, but I do.

Besides, I think someone who claims the president of the United States was a foreign-exchange student is a birther. If Root and his lawyer need a dictionary to define what “foreign” means, let me be of service.

My guess is Root doesn’t like the birther label because he believes it might hurt his future failed political ambitions. (He has already run for vice president on the Libertarian ticket.

There is a lot more information at the link and you ought to check it out. After providing the foundation for his claim that Root is a Birther, Ralston pretty much tells him to FOAD.  What surprises me is how Mr. Root fails to take his own advice regarding failure, something he seems a little obsessed with.  In addition to his 1996 book, The Joy of Failure, Mr. Root put out an article and a youtube video called Failing Your Way to Success.

And here is an interesting little blurb from that article:

A college classmate of Barack Obama at Columbia University (Class of ’83), Wayne is now the face and voice of Libertarian-conservative politics in the mainstream national media- with thousands of media appearances since the 2008 election. In each of those appearances he is a dynamic and passionate fighter on behalf of small business owners, taxpayers, entrepreneurship, capitalism, free markets, and dramatically lower taxes to reward the heroes of the business world- financial risk takers.

But isn’t that what Mr. Root claims to have forgotten??? That Obama was his classmate??? It seems that he also forgot this  youtube video:

Because if he had remembered it, then he would simply own up to his past Birther babblings. That way, he could genuinely engage in failing his way to success, as opposed to failing in his attempts to repress those who remind him.
