You're reaching with this one. College transcripts? That will do nothing. The Republicans have the power to know whether or not Obama was a legitimate elect. If it were really in question he certainly would not be in the office.
It does seem to me though that it would be a smart political move, if the GOP is actually asking for this, that he release the transcripts. He graduated from Harvard. This was before he was president mind you, so he was just some dude. The fact that he managed to do this shows some intelligence. Whether or not he got straight A's should not matter. Scholastic ability does not always reflect ones usable brain power. Oh whoever said Einstein did poor in school, wives tale. He did fine. That was a legend built up by those who do poorly in school and wanted to feel smart. Anyway, the Demo's are demanding transparency, it would be a good jab in the knee to the GOP if Obama released this irrelevant piece of information.
Both sides are playing games. Why do the Demo's really want to see Romneys taxes? Cause they know he payed very little taxes and that will enrage some. It shouldn't. If you were in his financial position would you really pick the paying of taxes option when you can instead pay someone to figure out what was probably a legal position to put his money in so he keep more of it? I sure as hell would. Not to mention its nearly impossible to make what anyone in that bracket does from a straight up paycheck. These people get into these positions by investing. Investments pay dividends, dividends don't get taxed as much. I bet you don't complain about that with a retirement plan though.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
