He graduated from Columbia and Harvard. He TAUGHT Constitutional Law. If that's not enough to show you that he's pretty smart, then I don't know what is. Some of the most brilliant minds got Ds in school. A letter on a piece of paper has no bearing on whether or not he can be a good president.

The Presidents life is not a reality television show. He can and does have the right to protect his own privacy, after all, the last time I checked, the USA was a free country.
Benevolent, I think you being too gentle with these people.
The only reason people are questioning his grades now, is because birthers think he is actually from Kenya.
Very simply stated, he has something to hide! Nobody spends $1.7MILLION dollars to fight in court to keep records sealed unless they are hiding something. Occams Razor - the simplest answer is usually the correct answer!
To believers, the legal engagement itself is evidence that something's afoot.
"[Obama] is spending hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars to keep this information from getting out," said Gary Kreep, the lawyer representing former presidential candidate Alan Keyes, who sued Obama in California to prevent the state from certifying its election results.
Keyes recently called the citizenship issue "the greatest crisis this nation has ever seen" and warned of "chaos, confusion and civil war."
Kreep has been battling Obama's California lawyer, Fredric Woocher, to release the president's records from Occidental College on the theory that they might provide information about his citizenship.
Woocher has threatened to seek sanctions against Kreep for pursuing the case.
"This suit, like all of the others that have been filed challenging Obama's qualifications for the Presidency, is frivolous," he said in an email to POLITICO, adding that he is, in fact, working pro bono. "There is absolutely no truth to the stories about the untold millions supposedly being paid to us," he said.
I am not easily convinced. Again I will ask you, why was nothing found at the state, House, Democratic nomination and Presidential nomination stages?

Sounds like you are easily convinced.
He protected himself AFTER BECOMING POTUS.
I like think that if there is nothing to hide, why give it that appearance?
That would be stupid. He is not stupid.
Then why are you doubting his rights?
Still with the 'birther' routine.
I do not doubt that Obama is an American citizen.
Have you considered that there is nothing to talk about?
I don't know what's in those sealed records, no one who's talking does.
You say that there is nothing to hide. Do you have the records? You don't know what is in there either.

Dude, he was the first Black man to Head the Harvard Law review, which was big news back then.
