WHITE HOUSE DODGES OBAMA’S COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS
Evades question with comment about tax documents
World Net Daily
January 18, 2012
The apparent stonewalling at the White House over vast areas of Barack Obama’s background continues.
In response to a question today at the daily news briefing that concerned Obama’s college records and transcripts, press spokesman Jay Carney said it was a good idea to have presidential candidates release their tax records.
The question came from Ed Henry of Fox News.
“Now, I don’t know how many years – maybe you do – George Romney released of his college transcripts, but Republicans like to complain the president has not released his college transcripts. What is the stated reason for that?” he asked.
“I’d refer you to the campaign. I mean, I think,” Carney started.
“Is it a question you could take,” Henry said.
“Sure. I think we’ve answered this a bunch. I think that the tradition of releasing income tax records for presidential candidates, for serious potential nominees and nominees of the two parties is well established. It’s not a law, but it’s well established. And it’s one that this president abided by when he was a candidate as senator. It’s one that numerous Republicans and Democrats have abided by, and we just think it’s a good idea,” Carney said.
Les Kinsolving, WND’s correspondent at the White House, previously has raised the issue of documentation for Obama several times, getting shut down each time, starting with Robert Gibbs when he was Obama’s press secretary.
The earlier questions dealt with Obama’s birth documentation because of the numerous questions that remain unanswered over his eligibility under the Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural born citizen.”
