Skip to comments.10 Reasons Obama Must Disclose His College Records

Vetting: Desperate, Obama supporters portray all who look into his past as "birthers." Now they ridicule efforts to find how a pot-smoking slacker got into Columbia and Harvard.
But Obama's college records are a legitimate campaign issue. Mysteries abound, chiefly concerning his transfer to Columbia and ascension to Harvard. Voters, moreover, have had the benefit of knowing other recent Democrat White House hopefuls' course work and grades.
If there's nothing to hide, why not release these academic records?
Why is the White House stonewalling?
An objective press corps ought to be curious. But it has by and large refused to pursue the issue, even though it hectored George W. Bush to release his college transcripts.
Here are 10 reasons the electorate has every right to see Obama's records:
1. Liberal historians have crowned Obama "the smartest guy ever to become president." Prove it. We're not convinced. Neither are the millions of Americans who still can't find jobs, thanks to his failed policies. Let's see his course work. Did he get an F in Econ 101 while acing his Marxism classes? We wouldn't be surprised.

I don’t think Obama was a bad student and I could be wrong. I think they are holding their cards and just before the election they will release what will be fairly good scores. Then they will use that and make the claims from the right look idiotic. He may have had bad SAT scores but once in the elite system he I am sure used his background to his advantage.
Now if they do not release his scores then it does seem to me he was not as brilliant a student as they have made him out to be.
Time will tell.
Obama’s membership in the “NEW PARTY” was documented in the past, that may be gone now. The “NEW PARTY” was is a cover for those communists who did not want to be known as communists. The parties membership includes V. Jarret, Axelrod, the Sunsteins, the Ayers, the Daleys, the senator that preceded Obama and every other member of the Chicago machine.
With all that do you doubt Obama’s contact with a Soviet operative named David Simon Canter (Chicago Communist Party).
Isn’t a Progressive the same as a communist
The amount of A's awarded at Harvard are close to 50%. That is not an anomaly and among the favored IE; MINORITY students: The A's and A-’s are even heavier. Ivy League schools are an establishment that allows for the incredibly average to lord it over the high achievers from lesser known institutions. It is also a way for the rich and powerful to perpetuate that wealth and power to their own offspring and social class.
That is true. However, at least in the past, some students take more time than others to earn their degrees. Consider the example of the late Edward Moore "Fat Teddy" Kennedy. Quoth the Crimson, on the occasion of Fat Teddy's honorary degree in 2008:
At the end of his freshman year, Kennedy was suspended for having another student take a Spanish exam in his place. He spent the next two years in the U.S. Army before returning to Harvard in the fall of 1953.
No mystery here.. Zero is “the” Affirmative Action President..
Some people are just a little moe “EQUAL” than others are..
If you are Half-White you can fein “blackness”...
Did Obama pass his law boards?
There is one reason why you have "birthers." Because journalism died in America. There are no more responsible journalists in the USA. There are only DNCers who happily repeat the Democrat talking points supplied to them on a daily basis.
It is my understanding that both Zero and Moochelle had Illinois law licenses and that both licenses were surrendered to the state. The mystery is why?
I had a couple of friends who spent their last two years of high school “in a daze” like Obama. They couldn’t get into McDonald’s let alone Harvard.
Rumor has it that he once had a law license. He certainly does NOT have one now. Here's a link: http://www.dailypaul.com/236950/obama-surrenders-law-license-in-2008-to-escape-charges-he-lied-on-bar-application
Obama may not want people to know which courses he took. Given that he was a student after grade inflation had become rampant, his GPA may be respectable (but a B in the 1980s might have been a C or a D in the 1960s). But there could be embarrassing information in the transcripts like being admitted as a foreign student.
A three foot tall bong wasn’t the only thing he was wrapping his lips around during his college days.
Thanks for the link, norway.
Barry and Michelle both surrended their Harvard law degrees, if you can imagine that. You don’t surrender a Harvard law degree because you are tired of looking at it. They drag you licking and screaming into a very bad situation that only capitulation will assuage.
If Zero were to release a transcript of grades do you honestly think that they would be real? Nothing else he has presented has been real, why would these be any different?
