This president, who, if memory serves, offered the most transparent Administration in history, has a sorry history of not coming clean at all or waiting until 5:01pm on a Friday night to release important documents. Normally, such a "document dump" is done in the hopes that the media will overlook it. In The Anointed ONe's case, he could release them anytime and the media will dutifully cover it up.
When all it would take is for President Obama to conveine a press conference and produce an original copy of his birth certificate, he chose instead to do everything he could to avoid addressing the issue directly, letting his minions relentlessly attack the GOP for daring to question his legitimacy. In short, as is usually the case with Democrats, they wanted the issue and not the solution.
And now we are being told once again that Obama is the smartest guy in any room, the most intelligent man we've ever had the honor of electing President, a genius at whatever he turns his hypercharged mind to. But all we have are the glowing reports of his sycophantic media and a couple of above average speechwriters coupled with the ability to read a TelePrompTer. Where are his college transcripts? Where is his graduate thesis? Where are his professors stepping forward with glowing reports of his scholarship? Where are the papers he authored as president of Havard Law? Sorry, but I am not about to take the media's- especially THIS media- word of his genius.
An aside: sure seems like we were told the same thing about John Kerry. Turns out that W.'s grades were better than his. We were told the same thing about Gore...and then it comes out that he flunked divinity school. Well, that one's explainable...he saw that, in divinity school, one studies some omnisicient, all-powerful being whose name starts with a "g". Gore obviously thought that it was "Gaia", not "God". Honest mistake, that.
On the issue of how Obama should explain what Rush said to his children......perhaps a fair point. But I wonder how he will explain what Bill Maher said....or Louis C.K. said.....or what Cee Lo Green sang.....or what David Letterman said. Either all of them are inexcusable or none of them are. Teach your girls consistent standards, Mr. President...assuming you understand that concept.
