    I think the left is very frustrated. They are starting to see Walker as a threat. They have done tons of opposition research and all they can come up with is he left college before graduating.

    Would you hire someone as mechanical engineer who never graduated with his degree and decided not to take statics and dynamics?

    Further, would you say someone has a high school education if they dropped out after 9th grade? Of course not. "Has an education" _in "X" implies they took (and passed) the patently obvious and requisite courses to fully attain that education.

    He took a bunch of college courses, but he didn't complete a degree. What field is he educated in specifically at a collegiate level?
    He seems to have mastered running the state of Wisconsin and taming the labor unions. I would also bet that he is making more money then you.

    then why do they lag regional and national employment and job creation stats?

    Considering that if he is--- it's off the back of taxpayers, you're bragging about that? HAHAHA. Wow.

    That's my opinion
    Or hands on and book combined. In my first job, I worked with an electrical engineer, who never went to college a day in his life. He was self taught. A college degree is wonderful, however most of the employers I have worked for valued experience more then degrees.

Today, however, not having a degree puts you in the bottom two thirds in education attainment. I expect more from a leader.

    Who cares what you expect? The voters of Wisconsin like him.

    Ah...the ole daddy bought him a diploma at two ivy league leftwing universities, Harvard and Yale tactic. You are attempting to have it both ways. You want to criticize Walker for not having a degree...yet you cheapen degrees by suggesting that they can be bought at Yale and Harvard,.

    There is a big difference between a person being a cog in an assembly, and being the top executive
    of an organization. The universities have successfully marketed their product as the only viable
    product in town.
