Obama hasn’t released them, but neither have other presidential candidates released their college records. George W.

Bush himself refused to release them, according to a 1999 profile in the Washington Post.

This is info from the link I provided. Obama has no need to do what others don't do. If somebody wants to leak them, maybe you'll find out what you need to know.
Then tell me what courses he took and his grades in those courses.....ALL OF THEM....

Obama is the one that touted "transparency"

Vote for Obama is you hate America and want to see him take us the rest of the way off the fiscal cliff so we can be just like Green, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland! I mean doesn't that sound fun? It's the Socialists Utopia wet dream because that is where we are heading and fast.

Bottom line, Obama is a terrible leader and really trashed the country as a President. We simply can't do worse.

Congress, not the President, sets spending, taxes and borrow ... read the constitution Article I Section 8.

Well, it is clear that the auto industry wouldn't have "come roaring back" if they hadn't gotten that bailout money. Just ask the narcissist-in-chief himself. That's what he was insinuating just as he was insinuating that "somone" built those roads and bridges in an earlier freudian slip. When is GM stock price gonna "roar back" enough to pay the taxpayers back the $30B it still owes us? I'm sure he forgot about that little nugget.
As far as taxes go, it's funny that the same things you list are strangely similar to what Romney proposes. Percentages might be different but same basic principle.
So, in what way is Romney a solution? You only have to look at his tax proposal in order to understand Romney is not the solution to our problems. Obama can hold it in the road another four years until we develop new talent on BOTH sides and work to fix our Congress by getting rid of as many sellouts to corporate interests over taxpayer interests as possible. We need a little balance in the program, and we haven't had that for decades now.

The problem with Romney is that he says he can fix the problem with cuts alone. Not true. We need more revenues as well as cuts. If you cut too deeply, your harm the economy. If you raise taxes on the wealthy too much, you can harm the economy. But, everybody can't have a tax cut and fix the problem, and the middle-class can't sustain a tax increase right now if we expect to grow the economy. Mitt's between a rock and a hard place if he wants to accommodate the rich. It doesn't work, and it especially doesn't work to get him elected. Wait and see.

Funny, but I don't remember him saying about transparency in school records. Could you post the quote?

But, here's what Americans are saying:

August 9th, 2012see more posts by Jason Easley

A new CNN poll released today found that 63% of respondents and 61% of registered voters thought that Mitt Romney should release his tax returns.

The CNN/ORC poll asked Americans and registered voters whether or not Mitt Romney should release more than two years of tax returns. By a margin of 63%-36%, those polled felt that Romney should release more tax returns. Among registered voters, the result was a similar 61%-37%.

What a whiner, he said he could fix all that but he made things worse. Obama sucks.
You're the whiner. Obama's in the lead. Your candidate is fading, because he doesn't have a plan. His plan was simply to win based on a bad economy, but Americans are demanding more than platitudes and generalities. I had faith they would, and danged if they aren't unwilling to go along for a ride they know nothing about, and Romney doesn't want to tell them about it. They're going to say "No Thanks." to the surprise package.

No, he did NOT make things worse. They're better, just not as much better as they might have been, but they're much better than they could have been or would be under Romney. Obama is the better option.

First, you tell me what courses McCain took and how he did in those courses. See, now he was your other option when you chose Obama instead, and what do you know about John McCain's grades? Hee, hee.

How about Ronald Reagan?

"But there are advantages to being elected President. The day after I was elected, I had my high school grades classified Top Secret."

He had a wonderful sense of humor. We all liked that man as a person.

Then why does Obama blame the previous president for running up the debt if it's congress? Why doesn't he blame himself and Pelosi and Reid, all of whom were in power setting the spending before the economy tanked?

Hope and Change was nothing BUT platitudes and it won Obama the election.
Romney is fading under the Chicago attack machine: throw out lies with which to destroy your candidate. I'm from Chicagoland and have watched this a dozen times. Barack beat Jack Ryan for the senate seat because the Democrate machine and willing media harased Ryan into opening his divorce records which showed that he tried to have kinky sex with his wife. Ryan then drpped out of the race.

Barack did "wonders" for the West Side while he was a community organizer and representative; it's the most violent and economicaly depressed place in the country. Now he is taking the whole country down the same road.

PHOOEY on those damn polls.....They don't mean a thing unless the WHOLE nation is included....You of all people should know that, NTR...... How many people were polled.....? One millionth of 1%? Give me a break.....
What are the demograghics of the so called "poll"? How many in the poll will change their minds? How many in these polls lie....How much "cherry picking" do these poll takers do? Who oversees their honesty? What are the political persuasions of the individual poll takers? How does one trust the press?
All they are designed to do is sway the opinions of the gullible and it doesn't matter who conducts the polls whether right, left, lib, conservative or whatever....They should be outlawed from the fabric of our society and replaced by the past records of performance by all of our elected officials.......
