#1 "I can only think of one answer that would explain this mystery."
You got it.
Except at that time the CIA was looking for Muslim students (especially listed as foreign exchange students) at Columbia University who could funnel money to the Taliban via Afghanistan and Pakistan in an effort to push out the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Obama's initial roommate was Pakistani. The CIA changed Barry Soetoro's name to Barak Hussein Obama and put him into service. The Taliban won. They are in the process of now inflicting the largest casualties to our troops ever after Barack/Barry announced our scheduled pull out.
Barry/Barack has been in the business of regime change ever since on behalf of Islam (Egypt, Lybia, Syria).
America is not immune to his old clandistine habits. Hillary got her dream of universal health care so she carries the water for him in regards to Egypt, Lybia, Syria in exhcange. Domestically his former Chief of Staff owes him, won mayor of Chicago with Obama's support, so Rahm turned some areas of the crime problem in Chicago over to The Nation of Islam. And when the CIA owes you, records can be cleaned up for you. The softening up of border control and piggy backing on anything contrary to the foundations of America's super power, freedom, constitution, capitalism and Christian traditions is just, IMHO, another mission/power play of a narcistic individual with the highest connections and a shadowy background.

#3 I always figured it had mostly to do with who his professors are/were, and what their bodies of work.
As far as grades, I figure he worked hard and got good grades, or was part of the fold and was given good grades.

#4 I actually think his grades are decent but not great. That's a problem for him: the LightWalker isn't allowed to have a gentleman 'C'.
Remember, he's smarter than the rest of us. A college transcript that shows him to be average won't do.

#5 I do agree with the premise of Romney saying I'll show you mine if you show me yours. If nothing else it would end all of this nonsense or put the burdon on Obama.
Personally I think Obama had average grades, grades that would not have looked super-smart next to most other Presidential contenders so he decided to keep them shut knowing the media wouldn't push. Then it leaves that open as a 'gotcha' later (like the birth certificate) when later revealed to be nothing.

#6 I actually think his grades are decent but not great.
In the 80es for somebody who is as good as Obama in using the race card? I think it's a trap.
Face it people, Obama & Co may be idiots performing the POTUS job---or any other job, but they are geniuses in electioneering.

#7 Some of his Obama's professors have been found and have relatively good things to say about him.
I think one thing he may be ashamed of is that he may have gotten only a 'C' or 'D' from Professor Ed Said in literary theory. That would ruin his cred with his radical buddies.

#8 I said before the election that Obama had everything handed to him. He was never properly vetted. This can of worms will be opened and he will be given a pass. We have a con artist in the White House. I suspect he will go through his personal money fast and will peddle himself off like a carny sideshow act. Yes, I see no hope for his reelection. Sad history for this country.
