Obama’s College Transcripts

by Kevin D. Williamson

Count me among those who’d really like to get a good long look at Barack Obama’s college transcripts — not because I think they would provide evidence for any of the crazy conspiracy talk that infests the fringes of our political discourse, but simply because I want to know what the man studied and what his grades were.

For instance, I’d like to know whether he took any economics and how he did in those classes. I’m also curious about what his literary studies were: especially, I’d like to know whether the man who wrote two self-important memoirs before he’d done much of anything interesting with his life is sufficiently conversant with the concept of hubris that he might take a moment for self-examination — because, as the economy slows and the government debt stacks up, the hubris is not the only thing around here looking Greek and tragic.
