"As I've said many times, what's fascinating about the what's-in-Romney's-tax-returns story is that the man who has been running for president forever could never bring himself to conduct his finances in such a way so as to make it politically possible for him to release the damn things." It's a real good point.

It is odd that NO ONE remembers Obama, from any of the schools he attended. Why won't he admit he was a foreign exchange student and made terrible grades? Why does he spend millions of dollars sealing up all records every year? Because that jerk wasn't a legal citizen, and is not supposed to be President. After he's out of office , it will come out that he fooled all the Democrats(maybe they know and don't care)anyway he will have a big laugh.So will Republicans.

He does not "release" these items so that we can very quickly identify fringe nuts who do not understand the basic realities of or world; like you, junior.

No self-respecting conservative should ever vote for The Mitten. A vote for Romney is a vote for the New World Order. Romney is part of the ‘elite financial establishment,’ he is being showered with money from the financial establishment and he supports all of the goals of the financial establishment. This year, millions upon millions of dollars are being funneled into Romney’s campaign and into pro-Romney organizations. The New World Order is literally trying to buy the 2012 election for their dream candidate. Romney would be the ultimate Wall Street puppet, and if you cast a vote for Mitt Romney you are playing right into the hands of the financial elite.

This, of course, is the handy work of Wayne Allyn Root who calls himself a ‘Libertarian Republican’! The entire story has been exposed as completely bogus and has been thoroughly debunked. There are a number of classmates that have stepped forward and have in fact the pictures to confirm Obama’s time at Columbia!

No self-respecting American should ever vote for The Obama
He is transforming this country into a 3rd world nation.
So far he has only proved to be the corrupted Chicago liar in chief

The entire truth about this corrupted Obama needs to be exposed
Bill Ayers put his through college.
He needs to release his college records and his sealed fast and furious records

Holder and Obama lied and Brian Terry died
Obama murdered Mr. Terry and is covering it up

Obama needs to be completely exposed this time

<quoted text>Who is Glenn Beck??? Anyway you care to describe it Obama's college records aren't available for examination. As for Romney,no one has asked for his. Just his tax returns. Which are not nearly so important as other records. Records that could explain a great deal about character,ideals,integrity.
Not in my book. What someone did 30-40 years ago in school doesn't really matter to me.
I'd rather see what they've done in the past 10-12 years, that's much more relevant.

First of all, he didn't spend a dime sealing his records. School transcripts are private unless the former student wants them to be released to someone else.

Second, he went to Columbia College, not Columbia University. Both are in NYC, but Columbia College is much smaller.

Romney doesn't have to do another thing, but prove he is not Obama, and he is home free. 89 Days from the election, and Obama, the incumbent who has a record to defend, cannot break that 50%, put a fork in him he's done!!!

UNLIKE Obama (or Soetoro), Romney has nothing to hide. The IRS HAS Romney's tax records. IF there were any fraud the IRS would have been on him like stink on liberals. However, Obama's (or Soetoro's) records ARE subject to scrutiny. What is in them he wants to keep hidden?

Was Barry Soetoro the name he used on his financial aid application at Columbia University?

Did he apply for admittance as a Foreign Exchange student?

WE don't know because Obama (or Soetoro) won't release the records he has spent $4,000,000 to keep sealed.

Just how DOES a kid born in Hawaii acquire a SSN assigned to CONNECTICUT?

Guess they faked school photo and accounts from Harvard Students.

The Oahuan, yearbook of Punahou School, via Associated PressA new book by David Maraniss looks at President Obama’s life story. This 1976 photo provided by The Oahuan, the yearbook of Punahou School, shows Mr. Obama, in front row, fourth from right, with his 9th grade class.

At Harvard Law School in 1990, President Obama found himself lovingly mocked by his peers for relentlessly promoting the exotic story of a search for racial identity that later became the theme of his best-selling book,“Dreams From My Father.”

“My mother was a backup singer for Abba. They were good folks,” a student parody of Mr. Obama joked. In Chicago,“I discovered I was black, and I have remained so ever since.”

A presidential election victory 18 years later ushered Mr. Obama into the White House. But it also drew new attention to the stories he told in the book, written years before his presidential campaign. And as he runs for office again, there are new questions about how closely the president’s telling of his life hews to reality.
