The mystery that is Barack Obama is beginning to unravel. Tonight, we’ll talk to Dr. John Drew, who as a grad student, knew Obama in 1980. Drew was a Marxist attending Occidental when Obama was a sophomore there. Dr. Drew’s girlfriend took classes with Obama. During the Christmas break, they all got together, giving Dr. Drew a good look at the young Obama who expressed Marxist views, including the need for a new socialist U.S. government, and advocated for revolution to accomplish that goal.
Today Dr. Drew is a political scientist and grant writing consultant who did his Occidental thesis on the topic of Marxist Economics. Tonight he’ll tell us his recollections on young Barack Obama’s Marxist perspective in the Fall of 1980. Does he believe Obama has changed his views?
