Have you ever wondered why U S Citizen Barack Obama won’t release his college grades? He never speaks of his grades. About the only thing we know of his college years is that he was President of The Harvard Law Review. The Law Review that he didn’t even write anything in. I would have thought that at some point the Editor would have contributed something.
Interestingly, Obama contributed not one signed word to the Harvard Law Review or any other legal publication. As Matthew Franck has pointed out in National Review Online, “A search of the HeinOnline database of law journals turns up exactly nothing credited to Obama in any law review anywhere at anytime.” A curious factoid for an alleged scholar.
Obama Claims to have attended Columbia for two years and yet when some 400 students, who attended Columbia at the same time, were interviewed and asked if they rememebered him, none….ZERO….could recall him.
Student Obama spent two years at Columbia after transferring there from Occidental College in Los Angeles. And for all the impression he made on his classmates, he might as well have been in the witness protection program.
The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News called that random group of 400 Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.
For some reason, it seems as though Obama is being secretive about many things in his past. For instance, after questions were raised about his girlfriend in his autobiography, we are told she is a composite (WTF). I thought it was interesting that in his book, Dreams of My Father, Obama mentions a mentor, “Frank,” some 22 or 23 times. He never tells us Frank’s last name. Frank, as it turns out is Franklin Marshall Davis….
However, through Frank Marshall Davis, Obama had an admitted relationship with someone who was publicly identified as a member of the Communist Party USA CPUSA). The record shows that Obama was in Hawaii from 1971-1979, where, at some point in time, he developed a close relationship, almost like a son, with Davis, listening to his “poetry” and getting advice on his career path. But Obama, in his book, Dreams From My Father,refers to him repeatedly as just “Frank.”
A while back I heard a guest on a radio talk show (I don’t recall which one) question Obama’s financing of his education. Today I came across the Investors.com article where they say a former Libertarian vice-presidential nominee, Wayne Allen Root, asks the question:
…how did young Obama, raised by a single mom and from a modest background, pay for all this education? Root wonders if one of the secrets in Columbia’s files is perhaps an application for aid given to poor foreign students.
When you throw these things into the mix with the Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko and countless others, one can’t help but wonder about how truthful the President really is. Is he telling us his real vision for America? He may not be outright lying but like so many politicians, it’s not always what they say, it’s what they don’t say.
As the Investors.com editorial suggests, perhaps Mitt Romney should agree to release more returns In Return for the release of Obama’s academic and financial aid information. Is Mitt waiting to “Rope a Dope” Obama on this subject during a national debate or is that just wishful thinking on my part? What do you think?
