Release The Documents!

Gary Bauer, Contributing AuthorRelease The Documents!  - No, I'm not talking about Mitt Romney's tax returns. I'm talking about all of the documents and data that Barack Obama, unlike any president before him, has managed to hide from the American people with the collusion of the mainstream media.

We not only knew George W. Bush's grades, we knew Rick Perry's too! But Barack Obama has repeatedly refused to allow his grades to be released. Why? What is he hiding?

Is he a closet dunce instead of the intellectual giant the media present him as? Is there something about the courses he took -- or did not take (like Economics 101) -- that would embarrass him?

We heard incessantly that because of his family's wealth, Bush was able to buy his way into elite institutions. Ronald Reagan had to work his way through college and went to a small school in Illinois for which he was mocked by the elite media. Why don't know how Obama got through college? Where did the resources come from?

We know that there was a vacation which the Romneys put the family dog on the roof of their car. You can laugh that I am bringing this up, but I guarantee you that the Obama campaign has a list of dog owners. They will get a message from the Obama campaign a week before the election asking if they really want to put a man in the Oval Office who would treat his dog that way.

The Obama campaign in recent days has suggested that Mitt Romney may have committed a felony. On the other hand, Obama admitted that he used cocaine in the 70s. Has one reporter asked, "Mr. President, where did you buy your hard drugs? Cocaine is very addictive. Did you have any trouble kicking the habit? Is your dealer still alive? Why won't you tell us? What are you hiding?"

Once again, for the president to credibly make an issue out of Romney's failure to disclose his tax returns is so outrageous it makes my head explode! I would just say to the Romney campaign, do you get it now? They are going to make you into a monster, and you are going to spend the rest of your campaign on your heels unless you go after him with the same will to win as he has.

Governor Romney is a decent man, and I know this makes him uncomfortable. But frankly this isn't about Gov. Romney's sense of decency. It is about the future of this country. We lost the last time because John McCain was "too decent" to bring up Obama's radical past. This country can't afford four more years of the good guys being nice while freedom-grabbing socialists play by Chicago street rules.

Obama's Libor Scandal - Today in testimony before the Senate, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke admitted under oath that he first became aware of Libor manipulation in April 2008. I would assume that Treasury Secretary Geithner would have known about it before then, but certainly no later than then. According to the Wall Street Journal, Geithner did know by June.

The Bush Administration was effectively over six months later. Knowing how slow the bureaucracy works at times, I can understand why the federal behemoth might have been slow to act in the midst of the financial crisis.

But Bernanke and Geithner have remained in the government. For the past 40 months they have worked for Barack Obama, who regularly says that banking and financial institutions need more regulations. What good are new regulations if the ones on the books aren't being enforced? Criminal charges are being pursued now, but what took so long?

What we really need to know is how many other officials in the Obama Administration knew that interest rates were being manipulated? Isn't that more important than Mitt Romney's tax returns?

Obama Berates Businesses Owners - It's not surprising that Barack Obama is trying to turn Mitt Romney's successful business career against him. Romney wants his job. Unfortunately, Romney isn't Obama's only target. During a campaign speech in Virginia last week, Barack Obama continued his attack on successful business owners in America.

Here's what Obama told his audience:

"Look, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own.  You didn't get there on your own.  … If you've got a business, you didn't build that.  Somebody else made that happen."
Here we go back to Obama's Bizarro World. In Obama's mind, government creates jobs, and business owners have been successful, not in spite of government, but because of government. So they should be happy to pay higher taxes.

In Obama's mind, all money belongs to the government, and the only question is how much of your hard-earned dollars government will let you keep. Those comments revealed Obama's socialist, collectivist mindset as much as his remark to Joe the Plumber about "spreading the wealth around."

Business groups are firing back. A top officer of the Chamber of Commerce wrote: "We should applaud the risk-takers and the dreamers who are willing to stand out from the crowd. Rather than denigrate what these people have done, we need to encourage more people to be like them."

Dan Danner, president of the National Federation of Independent Business, released the following statement:

"What a disappointment to hear President Obama's revealing comments challenging the significance of America's entrepreneurs. His unfortunate remarks over the weekend show an utter lack of understanding and appreciation for the people who take a huge personal risk and work endless hours to start a business and create jobs.

"I'm sure every small-business owner who took a second mortgage on their home, maxed out their credit cards or borrowed money from their own retirement savings to start their business disagrees strongly with President Obama's claim."
