Obama ducks calls to release his collegiate transcripts
The Washington Times ^ | Monday, May 28, 2012 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 05/29/2012 7:24:28 AM PDT by matt1

When President Obama gave the commencement address last week at the Air Force Academy, he congratulated the cadets for excelling at one of the most demanding schools in the country.

But decades after Mr. Obama completed his own college course work, his academic performance is still a mystery. Before and after his election as president, Mr. Obama has refused to release his college transcripts from his days as an undergraduate and a law school student.

The pot-head slacker was all about working the system, and if it benefited him, he'd surely register as a foreign student.

Whatta hiding Choomer?

Donald Trump unloaded on Andrew Ross-Sorkin this morning on the BC and transcript issue on CNBC (~9:30 into the video).

The MSM REFUSED to investigate his background in 2008. That would have meant pulling reporters out of the dumpsters in Wasilla. We were just told that he was the smartest person in the world, and anyone who doubted that was a racist and a hater. If he was such a genius, why not show his 4.0 GPA for all the world to see? I think that he was being passed along with mediocre grades, and there is other info on the transcripts that would do severe damage to him.

It’s not only about obama’s grades, but about whether he took ideology-based courses and whether he was registered as a foreign student.

I’ll bet obama has a lot to hide!!!!

Yes! If Romney releases his (I’ve heard he was top 5% of his class at Harvard), it will put Hussein on the defensive regarding his transcripts.

“There’s no reason why people shouldn’t know,” said Stephen Hess, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who focuses on the presidency. “At this point, it’s pretty moot — perhaps amusing if it turned out that he didn’t do very well.”

I don’t find it the least bit amusing! Actually, I fi d it absolutely infuriating because it is an example of how our corrupt media completely failed in vetting this disaster of a President!

Here’s a tought. If a college administrator, say a registrar, were aware of criminal activity (e.g., someone falsely claiming foreign status to “game” the system), could they be held criminally liable for witholding that information? (aiding and abetting?)

That would logically be the most incriminating possibility and the only one that would seem to justify such over the top secrecy. Of course, with a narcissist like Obama the C average and multiple citations by student housing authorities about his running a non-medical Cannabis dispensary, gay brothel, and BJ service out of his dorm room might hurt too.

I have said for ages that somewhere in his paper trail there is information that could possibly be more damaging to him than being kenyan. Spmewhere, on some transcript or other paperwork I’m guessing he listed himself as “white”

He already admits what a slacker and useful idiot he was in school. Excerpts from his book are being dissected and people are beginning to get it. College transcripts or no, his book is out there,telling on him every step of the way. Dreams from his father are becoming his nightmare.

Personally, I think that this is a “managed distraction”, in which the effort is to change the subject.

By analogy: “Today an unidentified senior Air Force officer said that “UFO believers are no longer investigating UFOs, but are instead focusing on weather balloon manufacturers.”

In other words, “They are getting too close, let’s change the subject of discussion.”

So if anyone wants to do some detective work, find out who started the idea that birthers have suddenly given up and decided to investigate Obama’s college transcripts.

I would give you good odds it did not start with a birther, Republican, or conservative, but instead was generated by some leftist AP hack journalist.

It’s interesting to note that the Obamadork was at an academy where he would never have been admitted due to 1) insuffient academic preparation, 2) insufficient moral preparation, 3) drug use, and 4) achievements far, far, FAR below that of the least qualified in the class.

The Obamadork is a quota-baby loser, pure and simple.

The years-long secrecy about Mr. Obama’s college records has led to accusations that he is trying to hide something — for example, grades that might have justified neither his transfer to Columbia University in 1981 from Occidental College, a small school in Los Angeles where he was on a scholarship, nor his acceptance into Harvard Law School in 1988.

This is right up your alley, prof!

>>But it is known that Mr. Romney graduated cum laude from the law school in 1975, and was named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top 5 percent of his business school class. <<

Romney certainly wasn’t the slacker loser Obama was (and still is). I guess Romney is waiting until the right moment.

I bet all Obama’s records have mysteriously disappeared.

Hannity had a special all about his book 'Dreams of my Father'. Should be a must read by every voter in America. If everyone read that he'd be kicked out in November in a landslide. McCain would have won if he'd just run commericals on what obama said in that book. They released an audiobook of it with obama reading his own words.

I'm also reading 'Amateur' by Ed Klein and I can't believe what this very liberal author is saying. He tears obama and his whole staff apart. He complains about the compliant and bisaed MSM which refused to do their job vetting obama...he even quotes Bernie Goldberg. And he's not overly kind to the Clintons either. At first blush I thought he had to be a Hillary supporter hoping to clear a path for her to the dem convention but now I'm not so sure. I highly recommend reading this one.

The reason the birth records are so obscure, is that the person currently occupying the Oval Office is not the child of Stanley Anne Dunham and Barack Hussein Obama Senior, former British subject born in Kenya. He may be, in fact, the half-brother of Stanley Anne Dunham, from a union between her father Stanley Dunham and an unknown African American female, and the whole pregnancy of Stanley Anne Dunham was faked.

Take a lemon and make lemonade. Stanley Anne’s life project was to raise this love child to the age of maturity as a “red diaper” child while never allowing any contrary information to be incorporated into his store of knowledge. He doesn’t understand the concepts of classic economics because he was never introduced to them, and he doesn’t understand the concepts of Christianity, because he was always steered away for any kind of instruction in that faith.

Apparently, Stanley Anne Dunham was complicit in essentially stripping the child of his American citizenship, by marrying an Indonesian national, and allowing the child to be adopted under the name of “Barry Soetero”, which is probably the name under which all his academic records are filed. If so, then the records people are seeking under the name “Barack Hussein Obama” probably do not exist. But he was assured of admission as a “foreign exchange student” and of the financial aid that was provided in that venue.

No matter what anyone says about Romney, he has been very successful in business, which is generally the result of hard work. Hussein has no business background, and has been a community organizer and a slacker most of his life. Who is more qualified to lead this nation into economic recovery?

Wonder how long before all building holding records from the 60s are destroyed by “terrorists”.

CNN discussed the transcript question today in the three minutes I was in a room with a TV tuned to their channel. Their talking head’s comment was that asking to see Obama’s transcript is proof of racism, code language for “a black man couldn’t have these amazing credentials”. Was it sexist when they talked about Sarah Palin’s grades? What was it when they reported George W. Bush’s lackluster grades? But as with everything in the composite candidate’s record, the academic transcripts are off limits.

What's the difference?

Like "tea bagger" the term "birther" is a derogatory term used to demonize anyone attempting to find out the truth regarding America's first non-disclosure "witness protection" president.

Thank you! Yeah, that's what I wanted, vindictive me!

For the best part of three years, I have been saying that, IMO, this is the SINGLE issue that would bring 0b0z0 down in a matter of days.

Liberals, communist, self-proclaimed intellectuals, Hollyweirdos and above all, the MSM, will explode to smithereens! The BRILLIANT ONE, THE MOST BRILLIANT ONE EVER ELECTED PRESIDENT, AND THE MESSIAH W/180 IQ, ETC. would end up in a padded room to save him from himself. They would drop him like the "brick" (sp?!b,p?)that he is!

It isn't the only record this illegal alien sealed, but it's the most devastating one for this cokehead fag!
