Mitt Romney Report Card Shows Promise, Lack Of Discipline
High school students take note: That mediocre semester of freshman-year French may one day come back to haunt you.
As the presidential election draws closer, it seems like any and all documents relating to the candidates are fair game. Case in point: One of Republican candidate Mitt Romney's old high school report cards, which was originally released by the Boston Globe in 2007, is making the Internet rounds again.
Young Romney, who would eventually go on to earn both law and MBA degrees from Harvard University, showed obvious intelligence, according to the prep school document. However, comments on his progress suggest an initial tendency toward overconfidence and underperformance.
The document is dated Nov. 10, 1961 -- during Romney's freshman year in high school -- and includes marks for English 3, Elementary Algebra, Biology, French 1 and Art 3.
Romney's lowest grade of the term was in French, in which he received a "C," while his highest was in English, in which he earned a "B+," but his teacher notes "He can do a lot better."
Romney also received a "B" in Algebra. The teacher complimented the politician's initial performance on tests but notes "He wastes much time in class."
At the bottom of the report, Romney's instructor praises the student's performance but hints at possible problems in the past. "Mitt is doing well," reads the notation. "He is a more responsible citizen this year."
Mitt Romney spent six years at Cranbrook Schools, a prestigious prep school in Michigan, while his father George Romney acted as CEO of American Motors Corporation and contemplated entering politics. First as a day student and later as a full-time boarder, Romney's experience at the school played a large role in molding the young politician's intellect.
However, Romney's teenage years at the academy came under renewed scrutiny in May when the Washington Post reported an alleged bullying incident involving Romney and a classmate.
Those interested in comparing the presidential candidates' early academic records will be disappointed, however.
President Obama attended Punahou School in Honolulu and graduated in 1979, but his transcripts have not been released.
Despite what Harry Reid may have said about "Romney having a pet elephant" (I don't give a rats a$$ if he owns a herd of elephants personally) and I certainly don't care anything about his High School Report Card.......and as much he was not my first choice for Republican nominee.....I would like to believe his is not a Communist.
A friend told me this is probably a good thing for them to be putting out things like this on Romney. Leaves the door open for Romney to say, ok Barack Obama, I will release all my tax records, my college transcripts, my elementary school records, my college application, the time my first child was born, my dental records, etc. now you Barack, release ALL of your records that have been hidden from the American public. And oh by the way, why have you spent over 4 million dollars to keep them sealed?
Probably Norma! Im at the point I want to see everything about both of them! Show it all or go away!
It seems that there is a great deal of info on Romney. In this mornings southern Cal newspaper, my wife was reading me a story about a house the Romneys own here, how much it costs, and every time they asked for a tax change due to dying property values. Most odd. We know all about Romney who is not even president but we do not even know if Obama is a citizen of the US, or a Muslim, or who killed 300 people in Fast and Furious.
