President Obama's re-election campaign is anxious to change the subject whenever an issue of substance is discussed. With such an awful record, it's a good strategy, but the American people will eventually see through this. There is one outstanding issue, though, that says an awful lot about Obama's character: his refusal to release his college records. The American people have a right to know who this man is.
We'll state up front that the release of Obama's college transcripts will have little impact on the election. Instead, it will highlight a significantly flawed character and a complicit elite media that refuses to examine this man's past. It's standard procedure to release this information, so by not releasing them, he's opening the door to conspiracies.
For eight years, George W. Bush was labeled as a moron, an idiot and the most incompetent individual to ever be president. On a daily basis, the elite media crucified him. Bush was a C-student at Yale, obviously not meeting the Left's intellectual credentials. During his 2004 campaign against John Kerry (D (as in Democrat, not his grades) - MA), who is best known for trashing America and the military during the Vietnam War, Kerry was viewed as the superior intellectual. The media continued to push the narrative of Bush being stupid to no end.
It wasn't until six months after Kerry lost the election that his college records were released. They earned him the name John "D-Student" Kerry. He ended up having virtually the same GPA as Bush, while getting a D in economics and political science, among other classes. John Kerry is the moron.
With Obama, though, his entire past is a mystery that's kept under lock and key. How does a poor African American get into Columbia, Occidental and Harvard Law school? It simply doesn't add up, particularly when you incorporate his heavy drug usage while in high school.
We believe the answer lies in what we now know as the Elizabeth Warren card: Barack Obama lied on his college admissions to benefit from Affirmative Action and that's what he wants to keep hidden. What else could he possibly want to keep hidden from the American people? Grades are not indicative of the kind of leader one will be; however, writing a thesis on the evils of America the greatness of Marxism certainly wouldn't help his cause.
It's no doubt the White House and Obama campaign continue to dodge this question. With Obama, you play by his rules, which is essential to liberalism. It's baloney to think that his college records have been concealed better than the military raid of Osama bin Laden because there's nothing to hide. Barack Obama has something to hide.
