Obama's College Records - What?

Obama\'s College Records  -  What?

Today I want to talk about the concentration on seeing President Obama's college records. I want to point out the ignorance behind this.

First of all, I would like to point out that all the republicans claim that President Obama stands no chance in this election. They also make a claim, false by the way, that the majority of the nation is against gay marriage. (Polls show otherwise, even though yes 32 states have voted against it.) They continue by making claims that Obama can not run on his own record, which is why he points out how bad Mitt Romney flip flops on so many issues. Yet, when Obama DOES campaign based on what he has done, the republicans turn that around too. Oh he is spiking the football about killing Osama Bin Laden? But that is his record. Oh unemployment is down but so is the workforce? Thats just an excuse. Show the complete stats not just the ones that benifit your party.

Just wanted to point out how ridiculous this years politics have been.

Back To Topic

So as you all know, during the past years there has been a big deal about everyone wanting to know about President Obama's lost years at Occidental. Everyone has this big arguement that they do not even know if the President has even completed school, what kind of student he was, blah blah blah.

Now what you may not know however is that of recent there was a private blogger that offered a 10,000 dollar reward for anyone who could produce Obama' college records.

Well, that seems a little outrageous and here is my reasoning behind this.

Okay, so has Mitt Romney's college records been made public? Bill Clinton's? George W. Bush's?

Hold on, has ANY PRESIDENTS college records been made public? Not that I recall. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong here.

Okay, so none of them have been made public. We have come to that conclusion, so why should Obama's.

Here is another great point to note:

Why is it that you want to see the records. I want to educate Americans RIGHT NOW. In case you did not know, his school records are IRRELEVANT. What do I mean?

Here is what I mean. There are only THREE requirements set forth in the Constitution for presidential candidates here in the United States. They are:

  1. Only native-born U.S. citizens (or those born abroad, but only to parents who were both citizens of the U.S.) may be president of the United States
  2. Age: Must be at least 35 years of age.
  3. Must live in the United States for 14 years

That is all folks. So why do you need his records again? It will prove what? Nothing. He will still be our President.

Street Talk

Disclosure of school records would set a bad precedent. Our presidential election is intrusive to the lives of candidates and their families already.

What is more important is the education that you "get" after you are completed school. I read a report the other day about how much of your education you actually forget and it is actual MOST of it. The applied, in the job training should be the focal point and at this point Mr. Obama does have more experience. Whether or not people think he is the person for the job of President is another discussion altogether, but I agree school from 10, 20 or 30 years back should be irrelevant considering your forget almost everything you learn in school a mere year after leaving school.
