    I can think of dozens of more relevant shortcomings, that are directly related to his performance in office no less, and *this* is what they bitch about
    The birther movement was actually started in the Hillary Clinton camp....first against McCain, who swatted it down by immediately releasing his birth certificate, then against Obama who did not release his birth certificate until he ran for re-election in 2012.

    You are simply making it up as you go along. First you do not have the foggiest clue what the qualifications are for the air national guard and second, there has only been one US president who can be classified as a draft dodger. His name is William Jefferson Clinton.

    Even choice across the board on any candidate vs another candidate, all things being equal, I am going with the person who has better academic credentials.
    OFF TOPIC...a little bit...

    Here's a little "fun trivia" about politicians with doctorate level degrees.

    I saw just the other day both are Rand Paul and even Howard Dean are "potential candidates". First I'd heard of Dean wanting to take another shot at it, but he was on the long list of Democrats.

    Dean attended Yale University with a Bachelors degree in political science. Dean received his medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Seriously....

    Paul left Baylor early, without completing either his Bachelor's degree in biology or in English, when he was accepted into the Duke University School of Medicine. At the time, Duke did not require an undergraduate degree for admission to its graduate school. He earned a M.D. degree in 1988 and completed his residency in 1993.

    That's pretty wild about Duke, huh? Good that they now require undergrad degrees to get into their med school. Well, in my opinion, it's good.

    But then Obama had the novelty of being the first viable African American to run for president going for him. He also managed the youth vote in the 2008 election. The only thing that really carried him in the 2012 election was high African American turnout combined with the usual partisan leftwingers.
    No previous president running for re-election would have survived the poor economic numbers and other issues that were dogging Obama in 2012.

    Most of what you operate on is assumption. I am a registered Independent. I belong to no party. I voted for Bush the first time. I did not vote for Clinton, I did not vote for Obama. Being a partisan I know you have difficulty understanding that, but a growing number of people are not Republican nor Democrats.

    Yes, but will that message have any prayer of getting out with the national MSM? When you're dealing with people who aren't experiencing a better Wisconsin, who don't live in Wisconsin, and are told that Wisconsin is a hell hole because of Walker? I hope I'm wrong, but I've seen it happen too many times. I saw it happen in 2012 to a very good man. And there's no reason for me to believe the same tactics won't be used in 2016.

    That thing with Rand Paul has been discussed on quite a few websites and by bloggers.

    Just curious why you're glad that Duke requires undergrad degrees to get into their medical school?
