    College transcripts aren't the same as tax records. And Bush's transcript wasn't leaked; it and Gore's were obtained by WaPo.

    actually its important. One of Obama's many major failures is his attitude of entitlement-an attitude that was cultivated as a younger man due to affirmative action

    That's right. The thread is about whether Obama is a good President. Demonstrably, he is not, and it really doesn't matter if he has three Ivy League doctorates or a Bachelor's in Basket-Weaving.

    its a given he's a bad president. we have to examine why so much fail. I think its because he got to positions he was not qualified for and his race was a major reason for that

    He's less fail than the two Bushes. Did we analyze how each of them "got to positions he was not qualified"?

    GHWB probably had the strongest resume of ANYONE who was elected President. W, not as much but he was rated very highly as a GOVERNOR of one of the most populous states in the Nation-which is far more impressive than what Obama had

    I'm sorry--what do either Bush or Clinton or Gore or Kerry or anybody else have to do with whether Obama's been a good President?

    Sour Grapes is why you Conservatives think he is a bad president. He beat your candidates twice, by quite a bit, IIRC.

    Not bad for an average president.

    BTW: THe second term is your fault. It took real effort to lose to Obama the second time.

    sorry. law school admissions are based on what you bring to the table when you apply-not what a soothsayer can see 15 years down the road

    and Obama's main qualification was he was black

    Oh and weren't you one of the posters who used to claim Bush was stupid?
    Never claimed Bush was stupid; just intellectually lazy.

    Admissions to a school such as Harvard is complex; its isn't about raw scores. There are a lot of factors that enter into the equation, including leadership potential.

    The Ivy's have affirmative action for Ivy and elite undergrads... You need a higher GPA from a state school or 2nd/3rd tier school to compete with those that have the Ivy or blue chip background... Being a legacy applicant (George and various Kennedy's) helps a lot as well.

    In the end, though, its silly to suggest that Obama was unqualified to go to Harvard as in school and post graduate record rebuts any real argument to the contrary. It just seems rather petty for a person to get hung up on this.
