A blogger has offered a $10,000 reward for anyone who can come up with Barack Obama’s college transcripts.
The question is why should this have been necessary.
From the Daily Caller:
The Daily Caller has identified the owner of a website that promised on Tuesday to pay $10,000 to anyone who can provide an authentic copy of President Barack Obama’s course transcripts from his days at Occidental College, Harvard University or Columbia University.
Although its one-page website is presented anonymously, conservative blogger Brooks Bayne confirmed to The Daily Caller that he is responsible for it.
Bayne told TheDC that a group of eight people – including some he called “recognizable” figures – are coordinating the effort to make Obama’s college transcripts public, Bayne told The Daily Caller. He declined to name any of them.
“We are doing this because we are tired of the media not doing their job,” he said. ”We are tired of the PR propaganda coming out of places like Media Matters, and we are tired of this administration stonewalling over things like Fast and Furious.”
“We are tired of a lot of things.”
The $10,000 reward, he explained, is “absolutely” real and will be paid to anyone who can provide any verifiable college transcripts belonging to Obama. Bayne said his organization’s members plan to pool their money to raise the cash prize, and added that the amount could grow if others step forward to contribute.
Obama himself is not eligible to claim the reward, Bayne said. The president may, however, release his academic records voluntarily, he added.
And given media reports about financial pressures professional educators face, he said, the $10,000 offer could be attractive.
“Maybe they have a copy of the transcripts laying around,” Bayne told TheDC. “They can make some cash. I mean, we are just trying to spread the wealth around.”
This should have happened four years ago. Obama should have released his transcripts. The media should have not let the issue rest. Unfortunately the GOP had a candidate who was a brain donor and a campaign apparatus that was even worse, so they did not force the issue either.
It is time for conservatives to have our Ronald Reagan, Berlin Wall moment. Instead of, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,” our cry should be “Obama show us your transcripts.”
And your birth certificate as well!
Yeah that too
Romney (or his "buddies") should be offering at least $1 Million for the transcripts and birth certificate.
They couldn't spend their money any better on Mitt's campaign.
how about an offer for more that his records.???
Add to that cry BH go home. GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE.
why bother? the probability is they will be a forgery.
Pay them with counterfiet money. AKA Obamacash.
When we finally get smart, as a nation, and demand that anyone running for office has to comply with the rules we are made to comply with while applying for a job, we will find that fewer crooks want to run for office. We have allowed men to become president that could not have successfully applied for dog catcher in any town or city of this nation.
also unrealistic to assume 'professional educators' would release documents. they are all to the left.
Unless the transcripts are released by the universities, they will be as suspect as the birth certificate Obama finally released.
DL, good point.
