Transparency? How far does that go? If some right-wing nut demands to see the results of Obama's STD screening and wants his bank ATM number, is he not being "transparent" by keeping those private?
Demanding irrelevant info and being refused access to that info does not constitute a lack of transparency.
Ah, so it's okay so long as it's a left-wing nut who demands the info from a Republican, but not someone else from a Democrat. Got it.
Sorry, but for a guy who billed his Presidency as the "most transparent ever", and then proceeded to do everything in secret, far more than Bush or Clinton, and criticizes Romney for not releasing his tax records, (when in fact he already has), while refusing to release something very relevant to people's judgment of him---especially since he himself has fostered the image that he's the "smartest President ever", (which is probably news to people like Jefferson, Adams, Washington, and a good many more)---this doesn't fly.
He himself, and his media proxies, brought the whole intelligence thing, so when he refuses to release academic records, (which pretty much every other candidate in modern history has), it raises a red flag.
