About those top secret transcripts …

I’m hoping that Romney simultaneously releases his birth certificate, college transcripts and tax returns. …

Frankly, I don’t really care about Mitt’s tax returns.

Pretty predictable: a gazillion dollars of investment income – dividends, cap gains and tax shelter LPs … 15% effective tax rate … maybe lower since charitable deductions will be at least 10% of income – his required tithing to the Mormon church.

P.S. Don’t remember Obama donating 10% to charities …

P.P.S. Mitt wouldn’t be hiding income from the church, would he?

I’m still more interested in grabbing a peek at the President’s college transcripts … glad that they got brought up again in Carney’s presser yesterday: Carney Dodges Question About Obama’s College Transcripts

OK, call me petty, but I’d like to know:

  • Was Obama’s undergrad GPA higher than George Bush’s?  After all, Obama is proclaimed to be the smartest president ever … the other was, well, dumb old George Bush.  Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Bush outscored Obama?  Remember when Bush’s GPA was revealed to be higher than Kerry’s?  Oops.
  • Did Obama have grades and LSATs comparable to other Harvard Law admits? I’m betting under on the grades and a push on the LSATs.
  • What courses did Obama take as an undergrad? Taught by whom? Would expect lots of poli-sci and philosophy from radicals (think Cornell West types) … little math & science (oops) … zero business or economics.

C’mon …. be honest … wouldn’t you like a peek, too?

    Why all the focus on GPA’s? Have you really found them to be a good indicator of intelligence? Would you blindly leave your affairs to past students with the highest average GPA?

    Why bet the under on LSAT and grades? Are we assuming affirmative action? If so, I doubt Harvard has any regrets. This Obama guys seems to be making something of himself.

  2. TK Says:

    You are certainly entitled to the opinion that Obama is not a good President.

    My point is that if accepting Affirmative Action students is seen as risky – since they may have lower GPA and test scores – Obama’s success at the school and in politics has proven the wisdom of granting him access.

    More importantly, why assume his grades were lower simply because he is brown?
