Obama Records Myth another false One
Posted in the Vina Forum

Obama’s College records are sealed from Occidental College, Columbia and Harvard
Pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, it would be illegal under federal law for Occidental, Columbia or Harvard to release the records of any student to reporters or member of the general public without specific written permission from said student. Obama has not released those records, but neither has any other presidential candidate in history.
Another ONE Bites the Dust....

Of course he wont release them, then he will be proven a KENYAN born P.O.S. Muslim terrorist.

Why do you care about his college records? Do you want to know how well or poorly he did or are you one of the people who thinks he either didn't go to those schools or attended them as a foreign student? Why is this such an important issue for you? What does it matter at all for this president or presidency or any of the political issues our country is facing?

Do you really believe the president of the United States is not a US citizen or are you just blowing off steam by saying demonstrably false things? You can't really believe what you write, can you? Please tell me you don't believe a word of it and you are just blowing your top like normal. That would make me feel a lot better than to know you are so deeply ignorant on this. If you do believe this nonsense, what is your best source?(Or don't you believe in sources for factual claims?)

I think I misunderstood your point in this post- Obama is not doing anything differently from any past presidential candidate but is being held to a different standard for some reason. If that was your point, sorry it took me so long to get it and thanks for making it. Be well.

Obama is being held to his own "standard".

When a lefty like Dan is complaining about obama, you know that it is a serious abdication of a solemn promise.
Obama's Promise of Government Transparency Is a Farce

btw, I am interested in hearing your updated take on the Syrian rebellion(massacre).
We had a conversation about obaam's handling, or mishandling of the situation depending upon your point of view. From where I sit, it looks like the same ole abdication of a leadership role has led to the deaths of over 60,000 syrians(and still counting).
How about you?

I think criticisms of the Obama administration for not being as transparent as promised are legitimate. I do not think the promise of transparency extends to the president's school records. I see those as totally separate and nonequivalent issues. I think President Obama and his administration deserve to be pressed on the first issue but the second one is a total diversion and distraction meant only to plant doubts about the president's competence to govern or worse (conspiracy theories about the president's citizenship). I am sure that someone like you will see the difference between these two issues immediately. Please let me know if I am wrong.

I think that we should have done more before this point and should do more now, but that is a moral judgment, not one based squarely on a view of US strategic interests.
It is arguable, and is argued by many foreign policy Realists, that Obama has done the right thing on Syria from the perspective of US strategic interests. It did not suit the US to intervene and risk the lives of its troops and those of allied nations in a mission whose outcome could not be easily predicted, they argue(d). Further, they say that the war could have expanded (and still might) significantly beyond Syria's borders and involve more than refugee flows, it could involve hundreds of thousands of deaths instead of tens of thousands and result in the destabilization of neighboring states like Lebanon and Jordan.
Having made that argument for them, the argument that Realists like Henry Kissinger and others have made, I find their position unsatisfactory. I, like you, believe that we should stand for certain principles and defend innocent human life against atrocities committed by tyrannical regimes and that more could have been done and could still be done to bring a resolution to the conflict with a far lesser loss of life.
I also believe the issue was politicized by the Republicans before the last election like so many other issues including Benghazi (I have no interest in arguing about that here, though, I'm just using that as an example). I think they did a disservice to the US and did not (most of the GOP leadership) work sincerely on the Syrian issue, they just used it to bash the president over the head with and had no plausible alternative to his policy, which means that their (most of them) criticism was empty, opportunistic, and cynical.
I do not include you among those people, though, as I know you are sincerely interested in the issue and your bringing it up now is further proof of your sincere interest in it (note the contrast between your continued interest in it with others on the right who have dropped the issue entirely- and Benghazi?- because it no longer serves a political purpose to talk about it/them).
Just a few thoughts. Thank you for asking. I hope I didn't ramble on too much. Be well.

Speaking of Transparency, your fearfull leader Here is One, THE MEXITROLL, has invited all of us to a MEET AND GREET in Ukiah on March 6th but has suddenly disappered.
Curious for a guy who threatens so many. Not very transparent for One who has extended the Invitation. WHAT is he sooooo worried about? Oh yeah, He is a FRAUD!
#11 Feb 26, 2013
The pres. promised to be "the most transparent in history".
Not only is that statement untrue, it is nearly a baldfaced lie(as I have cited in previous posts.)
I am sure that you can do better than "not being as transparent".......but you choose not to. You are an obama fan, hence you give him a pass on very serious issues. That is your choice, however, I must object. The humantiarian issues in Syria are undeniable, and the bhengazi incident is a complete failure of leadership and accountability.
In regard to school records, etc........I would think that a man who claims to want to be "the most transparent in history" would put his best foot forward on all fronts. He does not for obvious reasons.
It keeps a few detractors busy fumbling through records, and fuels his ability to appear as some sort of victim, hence enabling him to further attack and divide our populace.
The election is over.....it is time to heal the wounds and unite the country. His failure to do so is his most glaring failure.
Do you not agree?

Iraq is beginning to destablize.

Afghanistan is equally uncertain.

Iran is moving forward with...everything.
Syria is a nightmare

Yet again, the self-interested actions of powerful states ignore the sanctity of human life in favour of political expediency
There are far too many failures to mention now, and I haven't even begun on the home front..........I have things to do.
You may need to rethink your blind adoration of our current "leader".
It is going to become increasingly dangerous for all of us to do so.
Be real....oops I mean well.

He is on the road....heading north.
see you at oco time?

Please cite any post you can where I have displayed anything like "blind adoration of our current 'leader.'" Are you able to do that or do you want to now rethink or rephrase your last comment?
#16 Feb 27, 2013
You can VOLUNTEER for whichever side you wish in that conflict!
Go! NOW! Express yourself in reality. BUTT NOT HERE!
#17 Feb 27, 2013
Predictable. When or if you ever find it within yourself to express a(any) criticism of the pres., your "disagreement"(with the entire post apparently) would hold meaning.
There are a plethora of issues to choose from, as all of our Country's problems seem to be in a state of flux/uncertainty in this... obama era.

Yum, Yum I'm Hungry!

Your posts have a unique quality. There are few(if any) criticisms of our current leader. I suppose one could construe this as a show of respect for the office, or one could mistake your softball critiques as blind adoration.
Perhaps I am mistaken......however, in your case?.....it would be an error easily made.
It is easier to perceive error than to find truth, for the former lies on the surface and is easily seen, while the latter lies in the depth, where few are willing to search for it.-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe-

You must have forgotten entirely past conversations which we have had where I have expressed criticism of this administration including over the issue of Syria. I don't know if you are confusing me with someone else, if you have simply forgotten the ground we have covered before, or if you are willfully distorting what it is we have talked about in prior threads. I hope it is not number three because I have given you more credit than that up to this point. I can only hope that it is your memory which is failing you. If that is the case I wish for you greater limbic vitality.
