“The president who campaigned for a more ‘open government’ and ‘full disclosure’ will not unseal his medical records, his school records, his birth records or his passport records. He will not release his Harvard records, his Columbia College records, or his Occidental College records—he will not even release his Columbia College thesis. All his legislative records from the Illinois State Senate are missing and he claims his scheduling records during those State Senate years are lost as well. In addition, no one can find his school records for the elite K-12 college prep school, Punahou School, he attended in Hawaii.”
The above quote is taken from one of thousands of similar articles that have been printed in the last 18 months.
It appears well-researched and can be seen here:
PULLED AT THE REQUEST OF PRINCETON UNIVERSITY EXERCISING ITS COPYRIGHT RIGHTS
One can find a few comments from the thesis here:
It would not surprise me if Ms. Kagan’s thesis never becomes available. Why should that surprise anyone at this point? The leader of our nation won’t make his available.
We do know that Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, chose to write about Socialist Party history of the early 1930’s in New York City. Her professor says that she was “the furthest thing from a socialist.” What are we supposed to believe when we hear and read stories of efforts to hide important information? It certainly creates suspicion.
I agree with the statements that Mr. Obama made before he was elected. Public officials should be open and transparent. Looking at the first paragraph above, the only response I can think of is: “Will the real Barack Obama please stand up?”
