It is funny and odd that those transcripts are being kept such a secret. What’s on them or not on them? If he’s as smart as he says, it should be all As and they should be released. I’m with Root on this one, there is something really damning on there.
I still think the theory that Obama faked being an immigrant for financial aid is a plausible one. That is, being born here and then faking his identity so he could travel to other countries and get tax funded help.
Good grades, bad grades, citizen, non-citizen…*yawn* Everyone here at SayUncle knows that in politics big money and dirty pool always win, regardless of the animal on the bumper sticker. We are pretty much guaranteed to never change anything this gov’t does if we get sidelined by this little crap. Obama’s just plain ineffective. He’s not kept any of his campaign promises that I’m aware of (should I be grateful…?). He’s in every sense of the word: useless.
Which reminds me, the DNC is having another useless President as a keynote speaker (Carter). Why do I get the impression that Obama will be lovingly revered by future liberals as their generation’s Jimmy Carter?
Foreign students don’t get government money. There may well be private scholarships for foreign students. That said, they do ask you for transcripts of where you went to school regardless. Also you don’t somehow stop being a US Citizen to become a citizen of another country and then trade back. The article misses some clear facts.
Reid’s statement was a brilliant maneuver on his part, but even I don’t think he actually has a credible source. That said, Romney could do as every candidate since his dad ran for President has done, and release tax returns for many years.
I recall the era when Carter was not only NOT a speaker at Democratic Presidential Conventions, he was not invited. He was in fact told to stay away and keep his mouth shut until the elections were over. Because he was so fondly remembered by all Americans for his time in office, I guess.
So now this pariah is being brought back into public?
I guess it will serve to remind those of us old enough to remember that we have seen an survived s^!+ like Obama once before.
I’ve got a buddy with whom I went to high school (on the futbol team together, too) that found out he was a citizen of Brasil when he tried to apply for college and learned his mother had been using a fake SSN for him (she had since married a US citizen and was therefore a citizen as well). He had to attend UWL as an exchange student and I’m not sure if he’s ever been able to get citizenship (I only run into him every half-decade or so). Something similar happening to Obama wouldn’t be exactly out of the realm of possibility.
What’s consistent with the speculation is that Obama himself, in his book agent’s press kit, states he was born in Kenya. Now I don’t think he was born in Kenya, I think that its prima facie evidence that Obama had in that era claimed to be a foreign student.
