My question has always been concerning possible fraud, as in how he represented himself for admission (affirmative action, student aid, slots reserved for foreign students, etc.) and especially if any monies or scholarships were received under false information given. It does bring up a point though, if we should have any academic requirements for someone running for President. Of course there are those it seems schools just "push through" which really does a disservice to whomever may hire them based simply on a degree given.
School records, especially at time of attendance, aren't really all that private anyway. For one thing it's obvious those given various awards, scholarships, academic designations are usually doing better in school than others, such as Bill Clinton receiving a Rhodes Scholarship. It could sure be a problem if someone was elected and about as intelligent as a tree stump.
How do you feel about office seekers giving voters an idea of how they did in school as one means to determine if they feel the person is qualified for office?
Really, it comes down to the electorate, whether it's school records or financial records, they choose what they are willing to have withheld from them when voting for a person.
Romney's best approach about keeping records private is to challenge Obama to a mutual exposition of records voters have asked for from both of them. I don't really think either, if made known, will make much difference come voting time.
