ubuntu and text boot with grub2

I have a working grub2 installation with an inconvenience.  I want a text based boot.  I want to see all of the kernel messages scroll by.  I want a command prompt and not X.  I edited my /etc/defaults/grub to remove the quiet and splash options.  Yes I did the update-grub2.  Still no text.  I added text to end of the kernel line and I get is a black screen.  The system is responsive to Ctrl-Alt-Delete so I know the system is working properly.  I removed text and added nomodeset and the system boots to a graphical login.  I gave up on changing the various grub files to fit my needs and rerunning update-grub2.

Here is my grub.cfg.
set default=1
set timeout=30
# terminal console
# set gfxpayload=1440x900x32
set gfxpayload=keep
set menu_color_normal=yellow/blue
set menu_color_highlight=black/light-gray

menuentry "Linux 3.2.6 EFI" {
    set root=(hd1,2)
    linux    /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.6 root=UUID=d5304ad3-6937-413b-9497-2fe1f60f6635 ro
    initrd    /boot/initrd.img-3.2.6

menuentry "Windows 7" {
    set root=(hd0,1)
    chainloader (${root})/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi

menuentry "Memory test (memtest86+)" {
    set root=(hd1,2)
    linux16    /boot/memtest86+.bin

menuentry "Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)" {
    set root=(hd1,2)
    linux16    /boot/memtest86+.bin console=ttyS0,115200n8

Is this a grub problem or a Ubuntu problem?
