Tamara Holder complains that Governor Brewer did not go to college
Fox and Friends | 7/7/2010 | Fox and Friends

Posted on 07/07/2010 3:35:27 AM PDT by Bernard

Tamara Holder, contributor to Fox News, just made an argument that the immigration law in Arizona has another fault; apparently Jan Brewer did not go to college, so that must make her incapable of governing. Steve Doocy challenged Tamara to verify what she said, but then he changed the subject.

Looks like FNC is interviewing replacements for Juan Williamsn and Kirsten Powers in case of emergency.

Sounds to me like Tamara Holder didn't make it all the way through sandbox.

[that happens when the cat keeps trying to cover you up, right Tamara? ;)]

I'll remember that the next time Sean Penn tells me how to live my life.

And oh by the way, George W. Bush has an MBA from Harvard. But ... he's an idiot too, right? I'm thinking that it's not about the education -- it's just the article of faith that Liberals are smart and Conservatives are dumb.

If this is so, then this is MORE proof that having a politician with a college education is dangerous (because of lefty training at school) and having one without (education of hard knocks) gets the job done.

You need a college education to be a great governor? Democrat Governor David Patterson of New York is a Hofstra Law School. Point proven!

Even if (big "if") she didn't graduated from college or university, so what?


We are plagued by liberals who have enough worthless "McStudies" degrees to sink the Titanic. They see themselves as great achievers in obtaining crap degrees in "Black Studies", "Women's Studies", "Queer Theory", Chicano Studies", "Islamic Studies", "GBLT Studies", etc, etc, etc.

The only thing they are qualified to do is work for the DNC, radical liberal fascist groups, the propaganda liberal media, or blow up scores of people with a homicide bomb.

Tamara, ALWAYS be sure that your “brain” is engaged before putting your mouth in gear. Question....no college, a birth certificate & a governor or college, no birth certificate & a president, which seems like a Constitutional situation? The “left” constantly defining its I.Q. LOWER on a daily basis.

Wikipedia says she is a graduate of Glendale Community College which means she did go to college and earned a degree, just not a 4-year degree. Tamara would’t want facts to get in the way of her liberal spin.

Well, and Sarah Palin graduated in Journalism from a State school (Idaho?) so she is unqualified in their view. Dana Perino once commented that she was the only one working at the White House from a state school. Some of these folks are despicable.

It looks like the Ivy League schools are capable only of hammering square pegs into liberal round holes and in the process removing any common sense that laps over the edges.

Just my observation...but graduates of a community college aren’t the same-level as a full up four-year university. I’ve been in both atmospheres...and most community colleges are geared toward a technical expertise deal and a much cheaper way to get a degree (which I have no problem with myself...I think half the kids in four-year programs are wasting their time).

No argument with your conclusions; just not sure how they apply to the original topic.

My Dad, who grew up in the Depression, only finished 8th grade, but he would have made a far better governor or president than many we’ve had.

Did Tamara Holder go to high school? She obviously does not know the form of Government that America has. In America the LEGISLATORS WRITE THE LAWS, not the Governors.

Perhaps the kids in my area are just stupid. It has taken both of my kids 5 years to complete the necessary work for a degree at a “full up four-year university” and from conversations with other parents, I understand this is the new normal.

As an aside, neither of my sons has pursued a career in the field in which they received a degree. One abandoned plans to attend law school and is currently self employed in the craft brewing industry (making a killing too, lol) the other is currently taking classes at a “community college” to gain some marketable skills in the job market. Apparently that degree in Art History isn’t bringing in the job offers he had hoped for. He needs employment in order to finance his one true passion, writing poetry, which he has been doing since he was a child so he didn’t learn how to do that in college.

There should have been more of this made during the Kagan hearings. With her confirmation, every justice on the SCOTUS will have gone to either Harvard or Yale. We have a small clique of law professors vetting and indoctrinating SCOTUS justices. That does not sound very “diverse” to me.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

No, but Alvin Greene went to the University of South Carolina and received a degree in political science and the liberals are busily trying to throw him under a bus. For some reason they don’t think he is very smart in spite of reports that he was clever enough to spend thirteen years in the military without hitting a lick at a snake.

Hilarious. After working in Human Resources for many years, I know that a college degree doesn’t guarantee competence or intelligence. In fact, it seemed more often than not that those who matriculated in the School Of Hard Knocks, with tons of experience under their belts, performed much better than the highly degreed co-workers. They had better critical thinking skills, and got along with people better, too.

And if we’re talking college why won’t Hussein provide info on his college experience, including his GPA? Michelle’s Affirmative Action experience didn’t do her any favors, either. Dumb as stumps, both of ‘em.

Perhaps Ms. Holder could tell us which colleges George Washington and Andrew Jackson attended.

Or give us the names of the high school and the college from which Abraham Lincoln graduated, for that matter

Considering what folks have to surrender to the state in exchange for their "work permits" (the exclusion of others), I would think that this would be a BIG PLUS!!!!! for the governor.

I heard it this a.m..

She is an Obama evangelist like the rest are. Evangelism is preaching beliefs to others who do not hold those beliefs.

When she came up with that idiot remark of no college degree, she had already lost the argument.

My personal pet-peeve whenever I read this crud -- I had one semester of junior college, a year of practical experience working in the field of my chosen career path when Life happened, surgery required, post-op complications from that stopped any thought I had to having a normal life, let alone complete higher education, earn a degree.

Intelligence is not *learned*, book smarts/swallowing what the professor says whole do not a good governor make. I challenge this dunderhead to show me how I can't handle Executive Office because I don't have the sheepskin on the wall.

As shown throughout the thread, plenty 'nuff examples in our history of not simply competent but brilliant leaders who did not either. Gov. Brewer may be listed among them one day, methinks.

Some of the most unqualified people in US society today are ‘journalists’ and TV commentators pretending to be knowledgeable in a wide range of subjects. Few of the them have an in depth knowledge of any subject they report on, even after many years in their racket.

Not only do most of them lack real knowledge, but most are also steeped in leftist nonsense and political correctness, which makes them doubly uneducated and at times dangerous.

College is simply an endurance contest. I told my kids to just play the game. Not one of them is working in the field that they majored in. Our son is in a job that requires graduation from high school. Makes over $100,000 a year. The job he had before that required his degree netted him $28,000 a year.

Likewise, my brother-in-law is a pilot for one of the major airlines and he doesn’t have a college degree. That piece of paper resembles squat.
