Skip to comments.The Tragic Illusion Of Obama's Fine Mind (Half the public wants to see his transcripts)
Posted on 06/27/2012 5:32:12 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The Obama Record: As it becomes clear our "brilliant" president has failed to turn the economy around, a poll shows half of Americans want to know how he did in college.
Forty-nine percent of respondents to an exclusive IBD/TIPP survey say they agree that Obama "should release his academic records" before November. Only 28% strongly disagree. Seven percent answered "not sure."
Voters got a look at the college coursework and grades of President Bush, as well as Democratic challengers Al Gore and John Kerry. Obama, however, refuses to release his transcripts, despite media requests.
It's natural voters would now wonder about his academic performance. Other polls show they're increasingly unhappy with his job performance.
With signs the economy may be slipping back into recession, and the president's economic policies looking woefully ineffective, many voters are waking up to the notion he may not be nearly as smart as he's made out to be.
Obama's storied intellect simply isn't measuring up to the hype created by media sycophants like MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who's called him "very smart," or historians like Michael Beschloss, who said he's "probably the smartest guy ever to become president."
Coming into office on the heels of a tongue-tied predecessor, the well-spoken Obama was supposed to have all the answers. But it turns out he doesn't know any better. His bright ideas, from energy policy to health care and jobs, haven't worked...

Jug Ears without a teleprompt makes GW sound like Pavarotti.
Well .. just ...DUUUH! DUOOUURRGH? DUUUUUUH.
The Marine Copse might disagree, but my favorite Obamaism comes when he reads “OBGYN” on the teleprompter as a word, obi-guy-nee. Its hilarious and no one has ever caught it!
The dumb field hand moved up to the big house has set Negro achievement back 100 years.
If Obama is the smartest President yet why can’t we see his school records? He must surely be proud of them.
Ask Jughead to diagram a compound sentence.
Can somebody describe or direct me to a video where Bush was "tongue-tied?" I always found him plain spoken and blunt, which is refreshing from a politician. Maybe I just don't watch enough MSNBC?
Why go there? What does Obama have to do with Black American achievement?
His "folks" weren't field hands -- or even African-Americans. They were in the big house.
Wonder if he has shared them with his daughters? Surely, if Daddy is touted as the smartest man in America, those girls would be very curious to see how well he did. And proud to boast about it. Is he keeping his grades secret from them, too? Just wait until they start asking: What is my real heritage, Daddy - are we descended from a Kenyan? You used to say you were born in Kenya, then you said you were born in Hawaii...what is the truth, Daddy? What about the medical histories of our family that could affect our health? Who were our relatives, really? How did you get into Harvard? Etc,etc., etc. Hmmm?
I’d bet good money it’s not his grades that he most wants to hide. There is so far no evidence he really took classes at Columbia U. He did take some at Columbia’s extension program. And did he attend Occidental as a foreign student for some reason?
If he’s forced to submit his grades his friends @ Harvard and Justice Elena Kagan will make sure the grades are that of a genius.
That’s my take.
My guess is that his grades were mediocre at best, and then only because of affirmative action by lib professors, but the REAL reason he keeps them under wraps is that it identifies him as a foreign student. That could cause problems with his claim to be a Natural Born Citizen, or open him up to fraud charges for being admitted to college, and possibly receiving aid as a foreign student. Either way, he's screwed!
I don’t want to see his grades. I just want to know what nationality he claimed. I don’t think we’ll get either.
For real????? Where could I find it, I want to see it!!
F- sounds about right.
He will not release his records because 1.) They will show he was enrolled as a foreign student. And 2.) They will show that he had a much lower GPA than President Bush.
BIG TIME! Awww, that was F’n-ay great, CitizenM.
I’m sure he got all “A”s in Raza Studies, Womyn’s Studies, Marxism, Anti-Imperialism etc.
He was, is and ever will be an EOP. People endlessly and erroneously confuse facile glibness with IQ. He was not elected by reason of intelligence but by reason of hatred for Bush and Goebbels like propaganda boom.
People who have GOOD academic grades have no hesitation about showing them to others.
The guy is a slimy little weasel. Not that I disrespect weasels, they have their place.
There is nothing genuine (from a positive standpoint) about this man. He’s as phony as it gets. Shame on America.
Don’t forget “GAY STUDIES”.
Rumors about Obama usually turn out true, and known facts turn out to be myths.
Somethin’ and stuff and thingamajigs and ‘yall...forget the college transcripts. Find out if he repeated third grade three times.
I’ve said this from day one:
Given the incredible hubris of Baraq Obama
If he was a 1600 SAT, 4.0 in college, and ripped the LSATs, those would be in gold plated frames on the wall in the WH press briefing room.
Who are these people?
Do you want an asteroid to hit the earth? 80% say no, 13% say yes, 7% say "not sure"...
Well, to be fair, maybe they read the choice as 'don't care'. I could see that. Yes I'm interested in looking st the pResident's academic record for morbid curiosity sake... But in reality, I don't care that much. Whether he got an Affirmative Action A+, or an earned D- ... it does not matter. The man has proved himself an incompetent (and an incompetent with no track record or experience, I may add), and I don't really need to see his academic records...
I found it on Youtube! Around 2:30.
OMG, How pathetic, and no one batted an eye. I’ve got to pass this around....thanks!
The only past you will get from Obama is a fictional one. He is made up.
I doubt he ever set foot in any classroom. I think he used the race card to get through school.
He probably has a really good reason. /S
My wife is an RN - she says that’s pretty close to normal pronunciation. Also o-b-jiney, o-b-giney...it’s an audience full of nurses, so it’s probably practiced. OTOH he definitely said corpse-men...
Yep, we’ll keep hounding him about it.....
Arrgh, meant to say,” requests and rumors will dog him....”
The most recent televised example was during the speech in the Rose garden on healthcare when they handed out white coats to the attending “doctors”. Pretty much any time he talks about doctors, but you have to pay attention or you won’t notice it.
Wow! Great work.
