    in a lot of programs, you can apply certain gen ed credits towards majors - ex: inorganic chem for a premed major plus the science gen ed. This allows you to skip intro classes and add majors without taking 5 years.

    However, you can declare a new major without dropping the old one (i wouldn't even know how to do this), so he probably just had the 3 majors with no intention of finishing 2 of them. After failing a 3rd time, he dropped out

    So he may as well have been a freshman, being unable to handle upper level classes in any major
    And you may be a high school dropout after failing the 6th grade for the 4th time. Since there is nothing showing he failed anything, my speculation about you is as factual as your partisan hackery message attacking him with crap you make up.

    Still waiting to see Obama's dissertation.

    Maybe that's because a) The topic here is Walker or b) no one posted one about Jeb.

    A 2.59 GPA and leaving college "just" 34 credits from graduating and with 3 majors, that's a 3 times failed college student if there ever was such a thing. Why the hell you bringing up dissertation during discussion on an undergrad dropout? Do you even know what a dissertation is?

    I never once mentioned politics or obama, you did that. Keep this up and i will tell your special ed teacher to put you in the corner with a dunce hat

    Obama by his own admission was a poor student in HS, yet somehow he ends up in the Ivy leauge. Affirmative action anyone?

    Walker was the County Executive of Milwaukee Counties Board of supervisors, which isn't that important. They only make headlines here in WI when they keep voting themselves raises for doing nothing.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    Brazil elected an illiterate clown to be a national congressman. Well, technically Sao Paulo elected a clown who scored 30% on a literacy test to be their congressman. I think he received the second most votes ever for that particular elected position. One of his slogans was "what does a congressman do? I don't know, but if you elect me, I'll let you know."

    We should elect a President like that. Every day he can have a press conference where he explains recent events and how he, nor any other man who could have been elected, played no part in those events. In case I'm being too vague, what I'm saying is that the President is a figurehead and the massive bureaucratic infrastructure combined with the oft-lamented 1% determines policy. It's not the President, nor the electorate, nor the illuminati. Although it can be the electorate but only if not doing what the people want results in the loss of income for rich or government people.

    So to answer the question, I don't care that Scott Walker doesn't have a degree. What I do care about is that he would be a meaningless figurehead. The only kind of man who would make the Presidency meaningful is the kind of man who would have the guts to expose the meaninglessness of it all.
    A working class hero is something to be

    Someone is good and experienced or he is not, degrees only tell you (normally) that a person is book smart but that does not mean he is a good leader/politician. And not having a degree does not make someone a bad leader/politician.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Exactly. And I wonder how all those rank and file democrats that never spent a day in college feel about their partisans attacking a man because he lacks a college degree.

    I could care less about him not having a college degree. I judge him on his experience as governor of Wisconsin. He gets my vote.
