Letters to the Editor

Forget Romney’s returns; what about Obama’s transcripts?

The Democrats are making a lot of criticism and noise about Romney’s refusal to disclose more than two years of tax returns. If he continues to refuse they say it’s probably because he’s hiding something. I don’t share that view.

But what about the more serious issue of Obama’s continuous refusal to release his college transcripts and papers? How does that differ? My feeling and the feeling of many others is that it’s because of poor grades and/or that his papers disclose views that encourage socialism or communism or that they are radically anti-white. After all Obama has already spent over $1 million in legal and other costs to keep the items sealed. So consistent with what he wants Romney to do, why shouldn’t Obama release the sealed items and remove all doubt?
