    I've got to leave for work in a few minutes. Does anyone know or could anyone find out how much truth there is to this. Someone sent it to me and she has no idea where it came from.

    Scarlet, IMO, the press (in general) choses not to make public anything that will be detrimental to their "agenda".

    We've seen it over and over again. Headline news on the Internet that doesn't make it to traditional "news media" print/programming. If it does make it to that media, it's either downplayed or a spin is put on it to reflect the general liberal agenda.

    Just my opinion............. FWIW

    I wouldn't hesitate in forwarding that piece to others as food for thought.

    If Romney's elected, and especially if he makes waves, expect him to get the Tiger Woods treatment

    I would guess that the tabloids that broke the Tiger Woods stories paid people to get their information on his adulterous affairs.

    I would say that any of this Obama stuff that is public information can be found out. Why should his college grades be made public? The guy graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, I presume he's got some brains.

    Similarly, Princeton is under no obligation to release Michelle's schoolwork.

    I suspect that some of this information is in his autobiographies.

    Maybe the Obama's like their privacy and don't like people snooping around.

    Could someone find your childhood friends?

    Maybe Romney feels the same way about his taxes

    and yes, with the Internet, it is easy to find someone who was acquainted with others.

    I'm pretty handy with Google and other search engines. How would you find someone's childhood friends if this person was in his 50's?

    Very good post. People looking for Obama's grades and childhood friends are barking up the wrong tree, and it produces nothing. I would dare say there is not one person on this board who could accomplish what he has done, coming from a poor family, to become President of the United States. He went from community organizer, to state senator, to US Senator, to President is a few years, a remarkable accomplishment. No one on this board could ever begin to match a fraction of that.

    One must focus on Obama's record, his philosophy of government, and his antics such as the Libyan affair to remove him from office. Things like birth certificates, grades, and friends are a waste of time that could otherwise be spent on productive tasks.

    You mean about Romney wanting to keep his taxes private? Sure seems like he doesn't like the press bugging him about it and he successfully kept it mostly private. Good on him.

    Has Romney released his IRS required list of foreign accounts and investment valued over $10,000?
