Should Romney Release His College / Grad School Records? (vanity)

Posted on 10/07/2012 11:43:13 AM PDT by TigerClaws

Romney has strong scores and little downside to making them public. Without demanding or even asking that Obama release his own records, the press and public would expect equal disclosure from this "most transparent" administration ever. Obama can't comply and this leaves would leave lingering questions.

It'd likely be a big part of a day or two news cycle. I don't see any downside.

Romney blew the tax return issue out of the water and proved Reid a liar. Seems like this would be a smart follow up.

Thoughts?

After someone has served a term as POTUS, nobody cares what grades he got in college. The time to make hay about this was in 2008 and McCain couldn’t bring it up because McCain was not a good student himself.

The only thing that matters is the economy. Anything besides that is silly to pursue.

Romney should release the birth certificates for his whole family and all their school records, including applications for admission...

Great thought/point. After last weeks turnaround, this would be perfect. No downside for Romney. I think Romney should also call for a Debate with Obama vs. Biden. Obama has to be smarter than somebody. He may even beat Biden.

Yes.

He should release every document available since birth the day before the next debate.

Your move, Bambi.

I think he should release, however I also believe that the masses still take their cues from MSM , yes we have talk radio and internet, but MSM still rules the day IMHO.

It seems as if MSM has control of thinking by masses still, we talk about records and they say...here they go again, same people that talked about Obama`s birth place etcf.

We are not allowed to talk about Rev Wright either, when we do it just seems like the masses have been programmed to reject it all.

Yes the MSM pundits to my surprise said Obama lost debate, I am still in shock over it, normally they would have argued with straight face that Obama won or atleast tied.

They will NOT do this again in this election cycle, they were bored or something? They could have argued Obama wonm and perhaps pulled it off, they would have atleast bamboozled many to see it their way.

MSM pollsters are going to also say with a straight face that Romney got little to no bounce out of debate, you just watch and see. He should have got a 10 point bounce in some poll, but he wont.

I hope to be proven wrong on all counts, just what I believe.

Release them 4 days before the town hall debate. That would give Obama time enough to release them if he wanted to (yeah right) and still have them fresh enough to be asked about in the debate.

We all know why he won't release his transcripts. His grades aren't going look like Harvard Law material, and then we would probably see he registered as a foreign student at Occidental.

No, it will not get traction. He needs to stay focused on the economy, energy, repealing ocare etc.

Any one who cares about Obama’s mysterious past is already on our side.

we need to stay away from it

Speaking of debates..Why no debates outside of this ridiculous debate commission???

Why not 4 debates moderated by, Rush, Hannity,Levin and Sarah Palin?

Would the Democrats go along with that I wonder...sure they would

I would hold fire on this until just after the second debate.

Then hold a major news conference and tell teh liberal media that he will be providing them certified copies of his college transcripts along with certified copies of his financial aid applications.

Then wait a day or three and then ask - what about Obama’s?
I could really care less about the college transcripts - its the financial aid packages that i would dearly love to see.

And, if Obama releases something other than certified copies ask him, as an ex-lawyer, why he didn't take the extra step to ensure what is released are “true and accurate copies” of the originals he has been hiding the last four plus years.

We would however like to see his college applications to see if he applied as a foreign citizen student rather then an American.

It would be an excellent idea for Romney to release his school records...it puts Obama on the defensive to release his

The only problem is that the GOP, GOP Talk Radio, and GOP Media have very Pro-Obama in regard to Obama releasing things, especially his real Hawaii Birth Certificate (if he has one). This Obama Supporter nonsense on the BC and college records hurts the Romney campaign because they are put on the spot to release things...while Obama is not forced to. GOP Media have given Obama plenty of cover on this issue

If Romney loses this election...the first people to hold responsible are the ones who refused to push Obama to release Birth Cert/School Records/Passport, etc.

I suggested this a couple of weeks back. No one paid any attention to my idea that Romney should call a major press conference and release his records with great fanfare.

He could say he has been accused of not having the resume he claims and that, in order to put it at rest, he is releasing his transcripts. “The People have a right to know about its leaders.” etc.

I agree. If Romney released his transcripts, the corrupt media would brand him a moron if his grades were less than stellar, and an elitist overachiever if they were good. And they would demand absolutely nothing from Obama.

"Why not 4 debates moderated by, Rush, Hannity,Levin and Sarah Palin?"

Rush and Palin would be good....Levin would be EXCELLENT. But Hannity? Please, no. He would parrot his little memorized catchphrases and then be at a loss to think of anything else. This past week, I heard him chirp, "Republicans want dirty air and water and want to push Grandma off the cliff" FOUR times.....once when I happened to turn him on in the car for two seconds, again that night on TV, and twice the next night in the same segment.

Romney should not offer his transcripts unasked. That would be an obvious gambit designed to embarrass Obama and would backfire. However, it would be great if someone would ask Romney to release them, at which point Romney should do so.

Yes, If obama will release his at exactly the same time. They should do it at the next debate taking turns releasing their transcripts for each of the schools they attended.

The candidates should list the schools that they are providing transcripts for prior to the debate. That way we will know if they aren't willing to release them for all schools.

Otherwise you'll never see Obama’s.

Mitt Romney was a Baker Scholar at Harvard Business School which means he finished in the top 5% of his MBA class.

IIRC, Romney also graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School.

Doubly impressive is the fact that Romney completed both a Harvard MBA and a Juris Doctor degree in just four years.

His undergraduate grades at BYU were probably close to being all A’s.

And now for something completely different:

We all know about Obama’s penchant for ice cream. Barry just LOVES his ice cream. He’s almost like an addict who, having tasted the best ice cream in the world, is forever seeking out a reasonable facsimile of that first best ice cream cone. Kinda like that first kiss...or something.

For extra credit: What city is world renown for having ice cream street vendors who serve up the BEST ice cream on the planet earth?

Anyone?...Bueller?...Anyone?

Answer: Moscow, Russia.

I don’t care what he does. I’d think it suspicious if he hid them...the way Obama is doing...but I honestly wouldn’t care what his grades were.

Huh??? Questioning someones refusal to disclose something that should have been released years ago should never be taken off the table, it should be demanded. Why would doing something that would emparrass Obama ever be held back?

That is exactly why I quit listening to Hannity. That and his spiel about the credo (or whatever) of the muslim brotherhood. After you’ve heard it 10,000 times, it kind of grates on you. Learn some new stuff, Sean.

That is a point. Keep hitting jobs and gas prices.

Still, Obama is thin skinned. Release them 2 days before a debate without asking Obama to do anything or mentioning Obama. MSM will create the story from there. The unilateral disclosure raises the question in the public’s mind.

Mitt did do his tax returns. That was a daily drum beat before he did.
