Mainstream Media figure asks loudly: Where's the Harvard transcripts?

From Eric Dondero:

Fox's Live at Five, super hot Andrea Tantaros asks without blinking, why isn't Harvard releasing Obama's college records.

Great intro from libertarian/conservative Greg Gutfeld, worth sitting through before Tantaros's remark at the 2:00 minute mark.

Note - Tantaros, who is originally from Pennsylanvia, is a former deputy press secretary for both the House Republican leadership, and for former Congressman now Senator Pat Toomey.

See LR article 2010, "Conservative hipster Andrea Tantaros: America needs to go on the Offense against Islamic Terrorism"

And she's not a blond. That is even more amazing.

The obvious answer is that Obama hasn't given permission for them to release the transcripts.

And the obvious reason for him not giving permission is that his grades were less than stellar (given some recent statements from him, he somehow managed to become a professor of constitutional law without ever having heard of Madison v. Marbury).

Personally, I think those obvious reasons may have something to do with it, but that less obvious reasons (for example, that release of his Occidental, Columbia, Harvard and Chicago records might compromise ongoing Central Intelligence Agency operations from his time as a US intel operative, including in Pakistan) may as well.

I think you're right Tom. And I'd take it a step further. Showing poor grades would lead to everyone to the conclusion that he really was an affirmative action case.

"Showing poor grades would lead to everyone to the conclusion that he really was an affirmative action case."

We are well past that point, Eric. His tragic incompetence alone told us.

In any case, Tom missed a small but telling point: Howard Dean and the DNC released Obama's candidacy forms as "approved" where "vetted" out to be. No-one at the DNC appears to want to be held accountable for a "vetted" certification.

I really doubt the vetting glitch was about grades at all. Vetting doesn't require it; rather the issue at the DNC had something to do with the candidate directly.

Jim points to the really important part of this story. Andrea Tantaros is hot, and not a blonde. Fox still has hotties, though not like in the hey day of news hotties.

The Right Guy said...

It seems de rigueur that fox news chicks are blondes. May be this is something new. Then again, there's always peroxide.

Jim, I point you to the very hot Tracy Byrnes. Not a blonde. Oof.

That's the thing. He was never a professor of any sort. Hell, he applied to be an adjunct and wasn't even given consideration. He was held in disdain by any actual academics he worked with because he displayed very little intellectual capacity.

Actually he did teach at University of Chicago. John Lott taught there and tried to engage Obama in debate about gun control and Obama literally turned his back on Lott and walked away.
