    How about Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Dell, John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Sheldon Adleson, John Makey and Matt Mulenweg. They didn't finish college either.
    Many of those people are more accomplished than Walker and have way more impressive resumes than him.

    Even if he was dismissed, that doesn't necessarily mean he did anything immoral or that he flunked out.

    Both my parents were kicked out of their college for turning the ratting out the college to a state agency. The college kept tight lipped about the incident because they didn't want attention drawn to it, so my parents were able to enroll in a different college and graduate.

    It is not an issue.The purpose of college is to help you get a good job/career. If he got a good job/career with a college degree then who gives a flying **** other some partisan hack retards trying to make an issue out of nothing?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That won't help then any when they apply for a job that requires a college degree.

    Anyhow, most parents don't "send" their kids to college. the kids go because they desire to go.

    I have a good friend in the IT industry... he enrolled , declared a major ( computer science), and didn't even attend a single class before he was approached for a job... that was 20 years ago, and he's still with the same firm making very good money....he never went back to school for even 1 day.

    walkers choice doesn't seem so silly when we look at where he is today... i mean, it doesn't seem to have hurt him whatsoever.

    You may be right. You learn stuff like that in college.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    I know a guy with a similar story. He left college and became a software programmer. He was making upward of 100,000 a year until the economy blew up. Then his company left town, and he is on unemployment, living in his sister-in-law's basement and going to college for computer programming.
