In a new piece posted on American Thinker today, Obama's Occidental College friend and fellow radical, John Drew, writes that Obama has not changed, but is the same radical that he knew at Occidental.

Drew notes:
"For many years, young Obama was simply a footnote in my own intellectual autobiography. He was an early witness to the process in which I abandoned my expectation of a Communist revolution, dropped my old Occidental College friends, and eventually became a Republican business owner. In contrast, Obama held tight to his Occidental College friends and their causes."

Blog: New Photos From Occidental Years Show Real Obama
Noted in this article (link below), with photos of Obama at Occidental, and cited in the above, is this:
"On February 18, 1981, a student at Occidental College, Barack Obama, delivered his first public speech. As the opening speaker at a rally protesting Occidental’s investments in companies that were doing business in apartheid South Africa, he stood with one hand in his pocket, spoke in declarative spurts, and showed no sign of being the orator who would become President nearly twenty-eight years later."

It's hilarious when the Obama campaign calls Romney "radical." Still reaching after the debate....
