If you look closely enough you can spot moonbat Obama supporters in the photo. Nice to see Harvey Wienstien held a $38K per plate at his swanky crib for Obama. I would have loved to seen how the media would have treated the same $38 per plate party for Bush back in 2004. The media is not slanted, they are totally in bed with Barry and Moochelle.
@Todd. As long as you’ve decided it’s okay to be “off topic”….I suggest you spend less time complaining about the government and start focusing on those CRIMINALS you call “your children”. Frankly, i’m sick and tired of MY taxes paying for YOUR mistakes. Time to embrace your conservative values. Take some PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for YOUR FAILED LIFE.
Take care of your loser kids, i’m tired of doing your job for you.
Wow. Is there life on Mars?
Harry Reid wants to see more of Mitt Romney’s past income-tax filings. Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants to see 23 years of his taxes. This, from the die-hard supporters of a candidate who will not release his college transcripts or so much more.
I want to know how Barack Obama got into Columbia University for undergraduate school. I want to see his application. Did he seek extra consideration, as did Elizabeth Warren in applying for her academic opportunities, by claiming to be a member of a demographic group favored by affirmative action? I imagine that he did not falsely claim special treatment on a theory of being foreign-born, but I would like to know for sure. It is immaterial where he was born — I want to know whether he claimed on his applications, as his book publisher later would write about him, that he had overcome the disadvantages of being foreign-born. What did he write to the dean of admissions of Columbia University about his childhood, his education, his background? Every college-transfer application to Columbia requires that the student write a narrative, tell his story, explain why he deserves a crack at the Ivy League after a brief sojourn at a lesser institution.
I want to know who funded his college education. Columbia costs an arm and a leg. Did Barack Obama have benefactors, admirers of his youthful promise, paying his way? Did he take loans? If so, how did he qualify? Or did he win exceptional scholarship and grant-funding? If he received assistance — and good for him if he did — what was the narrative that he presented to qualify? Did he speak of the challenges of being reared in Hawaii, a black youngster reared by a white grandmother who stood in as surrogate for his mom? Did he speak of having overcome educational disadvantages overseas? Did he boost his appeal for assistance by claiming to be foreign-born? Like Harry Reid and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, I also want to know more about the leader of the free world.
During his time at Columbia, what were his grades? Everyone is entitled to a bad grade or two or three. You run into a tough professor or one who, though brilliant, is garbled and incoherent. Or someone whose code you simply cannot crack. However, a student who glides from Columbia University into Harvard Law School typically will have quite impressive a string of fabulous grades. I want to know what his grades were at Columbia. We all gained the opportunity to learn Al Gore’s grades at Harvard, as well as John Kerry’s and George W. Bush’s grades at Yale. We learned that Bush, a “C” student with a 77 average, had scored one point higher than Kerry, who graduated with a 76 GPA. Bush got a “D” in astronomy, while Kerry scored four “D” grades as a freshman. That year alone, Kerry scored 68 in each of two history courses and a 69 in political science. Indeed, the media could compare them. I want to know Barack Obama’s grades at my alma mater. It seems that a 78 average is all it would take to register Barack Obama as a genius on the “American Presidency Academic Scale.” Why is a brilliant thinker, whose ostensible brilliance raised him to be president of Harvard Law Review even though he never published any scholarship on his own, holding back?
Wasserman Schultz wants to see Romney’s tax returns from 23 years ago? I want to see Barack Obama’s application to Harvard Law School. Did he simply attach a fabulous, superlative transcript of straight As earned at Columbia with letters of recommendation from the university’s most prominent faculty members, along with a sparkling grade on the uniform Law School Admissions Test? If so, good for him. He should be proud to share it with the public. I want to see it.
What did he tell Harvard in the all-important personal essay that applicants must submit with their packages? Was it an essay about how he had spent his summer? Was it about the disadvantages he had to overcome in his life? There is no reason for a person reared by his grandmother to be ashamed to share that document with the public.
Indeed, even for the staunchest conservatives, that account was one of the most compelling aspects of Bill Clinton’s life narrative: a youngster reared by his grandmother in Arkansas while his divorced mom struggled to earn a nursing degree in Louisiana. What was Barack Obama’s narrative? Did he describe awkwardness and perhaps virulent racism encountered as a young black man in Hawaii? That story can be compelling, even now, offering all of us what he likes to call a “teachable moment.”
Did he describe attending school in Indonesia or somewhere else? What was his story? By what formula did his application win him acceptance to Harvard Law, and how did he pay for those three years of incredibly challenging tuition? With grants and scholarships? A rich uncle about whom we have not heard? How did he get there? How did he qualify for financial assistance? What makes one set of financial disclosures more relevant than another? I want to know.
American laws easily can be drafted to require presidential candidates to release five years of tax returns, ten years, even 23 years. Harry Reid is the Senate majority leader, and he can move the machinery to bring such a bill for a vote. The day that law is passed, we all will demand that all candidates from all parties release all mandated tax returns. However, that day is not this day. Mitt Romney has complied with the law. If the Democrats want to argue that “tradition” implies that presidential candidates should release more tax returns, then tradition also teaches that presidential candidates should release school transcripts. For example, at Harvard, Al Gore earned a “D” in Natural Sciences 6 (“Man’s Place in Nature”) and a C+ in Natural Sciences 118. On his College Board Achievement Tests he earned 488 out of 800 in physics and 519 out of 800 in chemistry. It is helpful and even important for Americans to know the hard-science skills of a man who came before us as inventor of the internet and before our Republic as the Philosopher-King of Global Warming.
The double standard proffered by Reid and by Wasserman Schultz is despicable, even as it is frustrating that Romney’s surrogates have been hesitant to demand more self-revelation from Obama.
Finally, another word about law. Most Americans do not realize that, as a matter of law, a politician knowingly may lie and defame anyone as long as he is speaking in a legislative session within the legislative chambers of government. Whether a City Council representative legislating at a formal zoning hearing, a state legislator in the Assembly chambers, or a United States senator debating on the Senate floor, she may say anything she pleases and may knowingly lie and defame with complete immunity.
Deriving from legal sources like the United States Constitution, Article I, Section 6, this “safe harbor” to slander and defame shamelessly is known as the “legislative privilege.” At its finest, the legislative privilege exists to assure unfettered debate, permitting robust criticism of government without fear of being sued for tortious defamation. However, Harry Reid does not embody its finest. Note that Harry Reid, when speaking outside the safety of the legislative chamber, speaks of having heard rumors about Mitt Romney but never states outright that Mitt Romney cheated on taxes except when Reid is on the Senate floor, artificially protected from being sued as a “dirty liar.” Thus, he not only is a “dirty liar,” but he is also a coward. If the lines at Chick-fil-A are too long, you can always find at least that one chicken in the United States Senate.
All I need to see is the stat line for Chicago Todd. Violence equal to a war zone, STDs at epidemic plague level, declining student test scores, and a state where pensions will be a larger part of the budget than education in 3 years.
And CT? In June 2012 Pew ranked CT, RI and KY as the only states to be on a similar trajectory as Illinois. Unfunded liabilities are SOP and no confidence in the states fiscal ship.
Personally I think Rahm and Obama were successful in bringing a taste of Chi-town to Hartford and the rest of the country. You get what you vote for. And we voted for the Chicago miracle.
Interesting how the media refuses to report about all of the violence in Chicago, they also never report about the innocent lives lost in Obama’s drone attacks…I guess the Nobel Peace prize isn’t all that it was once cracked up to be.
@A Real American, have we met? Do I know you? Oh yeah, it’s kinda, sorta impossible when you hide behind a pseudonym. You are like a little child (Obama supporter I am certain) who throws a match and then calls the fire dept see the shiny trucks. Grow a spine and grow-up. Make all of the attacks you want at me, leave my family alone…coward!
romney’s toast. His negative numbers are worse than sarah palins. They haven’t’ gotten better, they’ve gotten worse. Keep denying this FACT.
Look at you people screech about college records. (i bet you think he’s a secret muslim kenyan too). You people are an embarrassment.
And Todd, quit spending so much time on hate poetry and fix your messed up family. No wonder your kids are such derelicts. Their father is an insane angry person who cannot even appreciate the Mars photo. Grow up.
You mock CT police as union thugs and yet they keep me protected from YOUR CRIMINAL CHILDREN.
@Dov You want to see Obama’a school records? Boehner can pass a bill. The day that law is passed, we all will demand that all candidates from all parties release all mandated school records. However, that day is not this day.
And if you people actually did research rather than swallow right wing lies, you’d be able to look up executive order 13489. Which is identical to Executive order 13233, signed by bush. Which is identical to executive order 12667 signed by reagan.
So, you can thank regan and bush for creating this. It’s okay if your side does it.
Darn that liberal media from hiding this fact from you!
@ A Real Coward Anti-American:
Sorry to break your tiny, little, liberal, bleeding, heart…but according to Rasmussen:
Mitt is polling at 50% approval while Barry the incumbent is at 42%.
Are you still hiding behind your pen-name? Come on out and use a real first and last name…anyone can write your crap behind the safety of anomymity. Pretty neat trick how you manage to get through life without a spine.
Remember American history you mystery person…in the summer of 1980 Jimmy Carter had an eight point edge over Reagan… and we all remember the happy ending we saw on election night in 1980! Barry is toast, that’s why he’s having Reid spew his lies and BS about Mitt. As bad as Reid is… still far more of a person than you, you see he didn’t Deep Throat his comments, he actually used his full legal name. Did you see the 100 million Mitt was able to raise last month? Did you see the Chick-fil-a push back last week? Are you paying attention at all? America is sick and tired of leftist, socialist, garbage…Barry’s all done!
@Todd the Bad Parent.
Rasmussen, the poll that picked mccain/palin to win? you’ve got to be kidding. the poll that was off 40 points in the HI election? How embarrassing that you consider that biased site legit.
Those numbers are the opposite of every other poll out there. reagan had a 37% approval rate and was re-elected. FACT. And you ignore romney’s NEGATIVE numbers on purpose.
“By a 52% to 37% margin, more voters say they have an unfavorable than favorable view of Mitt Romney.” Furthermore, EVERY poll has Obama leading in the swing states of FL, OH and PA.
Are you paying attention at all?
When Obama wins, i will be back here to GLOAT.
Again, it’s clear to see why your children are so messed up.
I am done with you, until you post your name, I’ll bet you look great in yellow.
I’m not going anywhere todd the bad parent.
