Finally! Media Gets Around To Vetting Obama And Finds His College Transcripts

Suckers! The media is never going to vet Obama. They are however running Rick Perry's transcripts which were apparently leaked to the Huffington Post.

It seems he wasn't such a hot student. (Obviously a HufPo link)

The Huffington Post was passed Perry's transcripts from his years at Texas A&M University by a source in Texas. The future politician did not distinguish himself so much in the classroom. While he later became a student leader, he had to get out of academic probation to do so. He rarely earned anything above a C in his courses -- earning a C in U.S. History, a D in Shakespeare, and a D in the principles of economics. Perry got a C in gym.

Perry scored poorly on the basics within his animal science major. In fall semester 1970, he received a D in veterinary anatomy, a F in a second course on organic chemistry and a C in animal breeding. He did get an A in world military systems and “Improv. of Learning” -- his only two As while at A&M.

"A&M wasn't exactly Harvard on the Brazos River," recalled a Perry classmate in an interview with The Huffington Post. "This was not the brightest guy around. We always kind of laughed. He was always kind of a joke."

Let me sum up my reaction to this...I don't give a damn. I honestly don't care about Obama's college transcripts and I don't think it would be very fertile ground to attack him. Of course, Obama's transcripts would be of some value simply because he was presented as the cerebral candidate that would use his supernatural intellect to solve America's problem. Let's see how much basis there was for those claims.

Personally, Obama could have been a straight A student who never missed a day of school since kindergarten (I doubt he was anything like that in college) and he'd still be a miserable failure as President. I'll take a D student (hell, a high school drop out) with a track record of creating a business and job friendly political and regulatory environment over the "smartest" leftist any day.

Credit where it's due: Via Dave Weigel who asks, "Cool. Where's Obama's". I'm sure they'll get right on that Dave, right on it.

BTW- I'm sure all the liberals who want to destroy Fox News over the UK hacking scandal at other News Corp properties will demand, DEMAND! an investigation into how these transcripts came to be public and if appropriate see the offender prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
