    Because:

    a) Most other presidents and presidential candidates in recent history have revealed theirs.

    b) There are numerous people at Columbia -- who were in the same major during the same years, and who would have been in the same classes -- who don't even remember Obama.

    c) It would be revealing to learn how a boy of such economically modest background could manage to get into one pricey private college (Occidental), transfer to an even pricier private college (Columbia), and then attend law school at an uber-pricey private college (Harvard).

    d) He could very well be hiding the possible fact that he was a foreign student -- which would quite possibly put the entire eligibility of his presidency in jeopardy.

    By the way, there is no such thing as a "magna cum laude degree," which you put in one of your answer choices.

    There's an associate's degree, a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, and so on. "Magna cum laude" isn't a type of degree. It only indicates that one has graduated with a certain high GPA.

    It's because some people hate Obama and will throw any crap, no matter how ill informed, illogical or ridiculous in the hope that something will eventually stick.
    When it doesn't they copy and paste "amusing" pictures and think that they have actually made a point :-)

    and he has refused to show us his resume`....

    that in itself is RIDICULOUS...

    and the fact that they have the nerve to DEMAND any records from anybody else is even more RIDICULOUS than those who demonize people for asking to see them.

    Either he thinks he is very special or he is hiding something serious. Looks like the latter after spending millions to hide everything from his kindergarten reports to his passport information. Truth will out. We'll soon find out, hopefully before November.

    Combined parts of an article by Wayne Allyn Root former classmate of Obama at Columbia and an interview on Hanity:

    “I was a pretty connected guy. I knew a lot of people. I knew pretty much everyone, I thought, in the Political Science Department. I never met him. I never saw him. I never heard of him. No one that I know at Columbia ever met him, ever heard of him or ever saw him. It's strange. It's mysterious”.

    “…the whole class was 700 students. I figure class of '83, Columbia, about 700. I figure Political Science, pre-law, maybe 200, 250. Like I said, I was pretty familiar with most of them. Never heard of him”.

    "I think he needs to turn it around. I think if it was me under attack, I would say, why are Obama's records sealed in college, almost his entire life sealed, protected, lawyers, millions of dollars spent to keep him under lock and key, under wrap, why? If he got good grades at Columbia, then there's no issue, show them. If he got bad grades -- who cares..., He's the president of the United States. He got a C once, who cares"?

    “If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:

    A) He rarely ever attended class.
    B) His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.

    D) He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia”.

    “If you think I’m “fishing” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of?”

    “Of course this is extremely important. CEOs of Fortune 500 companies have had to resign over embellishing their college records; it’s obvious that Obama embellished his”.

    so do you think his degree from Columbia (which Harvard had seen since he went there next) was a fake? Do you think Harvard wouldn't have checked up on it? Do you think he got into Harvard without showing them his Columbia degree?

    I really have no idea. I printed something someone else stated. Someone that was there. I think that they fact no one remembers him is a little strange though. In 2008 Fox News contacted 400 people that were in that class and no one remembered him. If you contacted my graduating class I bet at least 75% would at least remember who I was.

    YOU don't know what a magna cum laude means, and the question is, was he a foreign student with foreign citizenship, which is a legitimate question.

    In fact, most presidential candidates do not release their academic records. As the IvyGate blog reported:

    Most presidential nominees (at least of late) do not release their grades from college. Romney hasn't. John McCain disclosed his class rank in 2007, but not his grades. John Kerry made his Yale transcript public only after he lost the 2004 election. Sarah Palin didn't talk about her grades until after the 2008 election. One exception is Joe Biden, who released his undergraduate transcript in 1987 as a form of damage control.

    ...maybe he should start with his academic records.

    It's not obscure:

    1. They don't think he has any.
    2. They'll "prove" he's not a native-born American.
    3. They can start screeching about how the records are photoshopped.
    4. They'll get more fodder for their conspiracy theories.

    From the way some have butchered writing "magna cum laude" I think you're right that they don't know what it means.
