    people were asking for college records long before Romney became the presumptive nominee.

    So the poll question claiming this is a response to Obama is flat out wrong

    By 'people' you mean Donald Trump and the birthers. They started asking for the college records on the day Obama released his birth certificate--when their first conspiracy theory went in the toilet.

    The college recordsism requires you to believe that Clinton and GOP opposition research hasn't already seen the records and found nothing damaging AND that then student Obama lied to get financial aide and no-one at the three institutions has gone back and checked.

    This college records nonsense is another fringe right attack on POTUS--shame on mainstream right for not condemning it.

    No, I mean American citizens looking to vet an extremely unknown politician new on the scene. Calls for his college records were introduced in the run against McCain.

    Romney's failure to release his records raises suspicion in my mind. What is he afraid of? It's like a person on trial who refuses to testify because he doesn't want to incriminate his/her self.

    Look what the birthers did to obama and that ass hole Donald Trump.

    BTW Romney paid only 14% one year and that is much less than hard working Americans paid.

    It may be legal to not disclose them but it is immoral not to. A president should be open and honest with the great American people.

    Romney only paid 14% of $20 million and that's a whole lot more than most Americans pay. Looks like Romney paid quite a few welfare checks for the last 10 years.
    Romney can release his taxes when Obama releases his college transcripts and his real birth certificate.

    He is afraid that 10 years of records just gives the class warfare advocates more ammunition to ignore the economy. the more they can focus on the big bad rich guy, the more likely the dems can win reelection with the worst economic numbers imaginable.

    There is alot of speculation is to why obama's school records are top secret. He seems to be hiding something so it does have me interested. If I was Mitt I'd call his bluff, "I'll show you mine if you show me yours".

    He became a State Senator, not by winning his nomination, but by knocking his opponents out of the race. He got the nomination by default. When he ran for U.S. Senator, he got his Democratic opponents divorce papers exposed, causing him to withdraw. Again, he got his nomination by default. The then pulled the same trick on his Republican opponent, causing him to withdraw and the Republican replacements was so inept, Obama cruised to an easy victory.

    Chicago political tactics at its best.

    Now...in his previous and current Presidential races, he obviously can't make his opponents withdraw...but he didn't...and now doesn't...hesitate to try to smear his opponents in any way possible.

    More Chicago political tactics.

    He had an easier time with McCain...in large part by connecting McCain to Bush. He's having a harder time with Romney...but he's trying his best. Witness the current taxer tactics.

    Bottom line: Obama has never won a race based solely on his qualifications and positions. He has always used sleazy Chicago political tactics.

    You know, haymarket...some people would charge good money for providing an education. You're lucky I don't need your money and that I'm doing it for free.
    The American people elected Barack Obama as President of the USA in a fair and open election in which his opponent put up the best fight he know how to conduct.

    Every single election for every single candidate has its own storyline ad its own dynamics.

    Get over it.
