Incapable Of Seeing The Truth

I saw this in our local paper, a letter to the editor from one of the ObamaBot faithful putting forth the claim that Obama stated he had a 3.7 GPA while attending Columbia.

My response:

There's only problem with Obama's statement – there's absolutely no proof his statement is true. None. All of his college transcripts have been sealed, as have any papers or articles he may have authored while attending Columbia and Harvard Law School. We have to take his word for it, and as we have come to see over the past 5 years, his word isn't good enough. He's the only president in the modern era that has worked so diligently to bury parts of his past that previous presidents and presidential contenders have made readily available to the American public. So until he makes his transcripts available I'll take any claim Obama makes about his grades with a huge grain of salt. His saying it's so doesn't make it so.

The level of devotion the local O-bots show to their Dear Leader borders on the fanatic. No amount of incontrovertible evidence that he is not what he appears to be will sway their belief that he is infallible and that the only reason he fails is due to the dark forces of the Republicans, the Tea Party, the Koch Brothers, the alignment of the stars, fluoride in our drinking water, and racist extraterrestrials. (OK, I'm exaggerating. They have never laid the blame on fluoridated water.)
