Wonder why no one has ever leaked Obama's records? Did they even go looking?

This is a tempest in a teapot for Walker. The primary takeaway is that Democrats are afraid of Walker 2016.

I'm sitting here typing away on a Windows machine, and it does not concern me a bit that Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard. Not one bit.

We had a Seattle Mayor named Greg Nickles who never finished college. Similar to Walker he got the political bug early in life and never had time to go back. There he was, running a major city, the center of the 12th or so largest media market in the US, and no degree. It was never an issue for local Dems because he toed the line on other issues important to them, such as a belief in evolution and global warming.

Walker still has much to prove, especially in the foreign policy area, but a lack of a degree is not of significance.

Wow, the Washington Post is right on Scott Walker's academic records Walker clearly has nothing to hide if his records are open and public.

Why doesn't the Washington Post do some of that old-fashioned investigative reporting and find out why exactly President Obama has spent millions to keep his college records closed?

"millions" have not been spent. once again, most college records are private records protected under FERPA laws.

I guess teachers are exempt. But again, TIME... who's surprised? Did anyone seek out any of Obama's teachers? Does anyone know who they were?

Now there is, with (I understand) the average undergraduate grade at Yale, Harvard, etc., being an A -.

When Bush went to Yale, there was no affirmative action.

Both affirmative action and grade inflation were firmly in place when Obama went to college.

Obama sailed through Occidental, Columbia and Harvard with the wind of grade inflation and affirmative action at his back.

Bush, on the other hand, had to tack against the wind and actually EARN his degrees from Yale and Harvard.
I guess you, as an expert on student life at Yale, Columbia and Harvard, having attended at least one of those fine institutions, are supremely qualified to make such claims about our President.

Am I right? Or are you simply clueless?
