Video: Jay Carney dodges question about Obama’s college transcript

(By Tina Korbe, Hot Air) - Forget birth certificates and tax returns: What 'really' qualifies a person for president is straight As in college. No? Never mind, then. But wait — as long as we’re fixating on documents that, in the end, have no effect whatsoever on job creation or economic growth, why 'can’t' we see Barack Obama’s college transcripts? As it turns out, Jay Carney didn’t say we can’t; he just referred Fox reporter Ed Henry to the Obama campaign. (Incidentally, I love how jaunty Henry is in this video. Why can’t more reporters be like that?)
