Obama “won’t release his college transcripts” campaign criticizes Mitt Romney…

The chutzpah is strong in this one.

…for declining to release his tax returns:

A spokesman for President Obama‘s re-election campaign blasted Mr. Romney and questioned whether he had something to hide in his finances.

“Why does Governor Romney feel like he can play by a different set of rules?” said Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for the Obama campaign. “What is it that he doesn’t want the American people to see?…”

I don’t know: possibly Romney’s got the financial equivalent of the alleged gentleman’s C+ GPA that Ben LaBolt’s boss has been resolutely hiding for the last decade or so? – No, come on: it’s like the worst-kept secret in Washington DC that the President doesn’t exactly live up to the intellectual hype that his sycophants like to toss around. Which is not to say that Obama is dumb. He probably has an IQ of about 125 or so; which is pretty good, all things considered. Middling decent. But it’s not like he can set fire to people with his mind.

None of which means that I am totally fine with Romney not releasing his tax returns. But I see no reason why we should pretend that Mitt Romney’s not playing by the same rules that Barack Obama laid down in the first place, either. Fair’s fair. And transparency begins at the White House.

    It would be nice to know who paid his college tuition fees, too.

  • jetty says:

    I don’t care so much about the grades, it’s the kind of classes he took at Columbia and Harvard that interests me.

    • Moe_Lane says:

      jetty: I’m already getting whining about it, so I figure that the grades thing actually bothers the Left quite a bit. Or, rather, it would if they let themselves think about the implications.

  • Kimberly Marvel says:

    Hey maybe they should make a deal, Obama releases his and Romney releases his! Of course Obama would have to release first otherwise he’d back out after Romney shows.
