My long-held fear is that Mr. Obama is hiding something about his education. During the endless 2008 campaign, Mr. Obama would not release his college grades. Given that President George W. Bush and Sens. Al Gore and John Kerry all had proved mediocre grades were no impediment to a presidential bid, Mr. Obama likely had other concerns.
While I have no desire to see Mr. Obama’s birth certificate, I do want to see his college transcripts. My suspicion, one could even call it a conspiracy theory, is that Mr. Obama committed himself to a radical curriculum, aligned himself with the far-left professoriate, and sought to keep this biographical information from his political enemies, especially then-rival Hillary Rodham Clinton, for fear that they would paint the former community organizer and follower of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright as something other than an advocate of racial reconciliation.
Through his acts over the last few weeks, Mr. Obama has reinforced my fears and my admittedly speculative thesis…
The beer at the White House tavern was served flat last Thursday because the president is less the living embodiment of America’s melting pot than he is an adherent of the toxic ideas that – “thanks” to Mr. Gates among many, many other tenured radicals – dominate the modern university, permeate media thinking, saturate public policy and seek to define us in perpetuity by the color of our skin.
