    He might get beaten by a landslide the next time that he runs for office.

    Who really knows?

    In the case of Obama a quitter attracted much more than that.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    Negative?

    It's a plus.

    I went to a Midwest university and I learned almost nothing that has helped me in my chosen field (or just about anything else). Other then degrees for things that absolutely require mega-education (doctors, engineers, etc.), imo, post secondary education is INCREDIBLY overrated.

    It amazes me how people will go into massive debt just to get a degree in underwater basket weaving or some other utterly useless skill.
    Unless you are SURE what you want to do and it absolutely requires a degree...I say skip college and save your money. Too many people go to college for no other reason then they are either pressured to go and/or they don't know what else to do and have been taught that is the next step in life.


    As for this guy (whoever the heck he is), the fact that he went to college, tried it and then dumped it is good for me. It tells me he tries new things but is not so weak as to stick with something even when he does not want/need to continue doing it.
    Sometimes, it takes more guts to quit something then to continue to do it...sometimes.

    A college degree does not in any way mean somebody is smart or capable, if it did, a recent graduate from law school would walk right in to an established firm and get a high paying job.

    Does that ever happen or does that person need experience to prove themselves first?

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    I would never ever ever ever vote for Scott Walker. But, frankly, I could give two hoots about what kind of degrees he does or doesn't have. Not even a factor for me. Politicians can ramble on about their graduation from Harvard and their PhD in underwater basketweaving, but I could care less. You can come out of college dumb as a damn rock. Conversely, you can never step foot on a college campus and still be a well-rounded, well-educated human being.

Critical, independent thinking is not on the agenda; rather, ethos based groupthink has replaced true education.

    Amerikan education has become a cesspool of collectivist, Skinnerian garbage designed to produce ignorant, easily controlled and manipulated serfs.

    I have 2 young kids and one on the way... I have no intention of sending them to college. A waste of money, and a waste of time. They can learn everything they need to learn from home study, the library, and other alternative sources.


    The USA is the richest, most powerful, nation on this planet.

    Who made that happen?

    That's a lot of spin celebrating mediocrity and lack of dedication.
