Skip to comments.Gov. Scott Walker looks to finish his college degree
Posted on 04/08/2014 4:07:40 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Gov. Scott Walker is going back to school.
A spokeswoman for the Wisconsin Republican says Walker is looking to sew up a degree he abandoned 24 years ago when he was a senior at Milwaukee's Marquette University and left to accept a position with the American Red Cross.
Walker explained his struggle in finishing up his college education: "I kept thinking I'd go back, got married, had one kid, had another kid, next thing you know," he said, "you're worrying more about paying for your kids' college education than you are for your own."

Why? Does he want his IQ to get lower? Start using ridiculous ideas like Keynesian economics?
He probably won’t be taken seriously as a presidential contender without a degree. Hence, he is going back to school. I can’t blame him.
You know, the HR types. Drones.
Agree, in today’s colleges you lose all rational thought and common sense.
More and more successful people these days are drop-outs.
REALLY REVEALING about our hate-America University system, I think.
WHY even finish, Scott ?
if he runs for president in 2016 without his degree it’ll just be more BS fodder for the criminal liberal media...
The Democrats here in Wisconsin have been running Walker down over no college degree since he first ran for County Executive, Governor, Governor recall and now when as he runs for his second term as governor. They just have no respect for non degree politicians. Meanwhile, he outperforms the Democrats he defeated or replaced in those offices.
‘Twould seem he’s much better off without it.
Remember, the Obamadork is demonstrably the most inept president (and most probably current resident) of the country.
And he has some degrees (maybe)...from some schools with very questionable standards.
And Walker (and Sarah Palin) are both much, much, MUCH smarter.
And that’s the twuth.
Wont be taken seriously by whom? A bunch of elitist and fabian socialists?LOL
Good for Governor Walker.
If I were him I would apply for the degree to be in “Political Science”, that way he could get massive credits for his previous experience (which could easily earn him a “Masters”).
He has done wonders in the political field already by defeating and abolishing one union although he still has more opportunity in that area which, when completed could “nudge him” into having enough credits without ever sitting in a class room.
Why not? If he’s only a few hours short, get it done and move on. He’s looking strong for the White House one day, and this ties down a talking point.
“The only people who. . .”
You just described millions, and millions, and millions of voters.
I know, but a national race is a different story. It isn’t the Democrats Scott Walker has to worry about. It’s his fellow Republicans whom he has to beat in the primaries who will be his main concern until 2016.
“Wont be taken seriously by whom? A bunch of elitist and fabian socialists?LOL”
Yep. And they, sadly, shape much of the public’s opinion.
i was one year behind him. still remember seeing him in the student union.
Harry Truman did pretty well w/o a degree but that was back when democrats regularly made sense.
After what he’s done for his state, he should be going back to teach them a thing or two.
NOOOOOoooooo! It’s all indoctrination! Don’t do it! They’ll remove your brain!!!
He’d be better off teaching a course at the University in management while being threatened by thugs.
The prigs will probably make the case that his extant hours are no longer valid. The MSM will pick up on this and scream corruption at the granting school.
Good idea. Take the issue off the table for 2016.
> If I were him I would apply for the degree to be in Political Science
Could you imagine him handing in a paper and some professor saying “no, your analysis of this political problem is wrong”?
I am a huge walker supporter. Against Hillary I think he is more appealing to blue collar voters without the degree - avg guy running against the elitist bitch. Just my opinion.
Walker reformed U W promoting distance learning. I hope he exploits thus so he can drive the educational libs crazy.
” They were going to vote Dem anyway.”
“Or are you one of the Republicans that thinks amnesty guarantees the hispanic vote for a liberal GOP?”
WTF did that come from, dumbass?
A degree isn't a magic bullet for Walker any more than amnesty is a magic bullet for the GOP-E.
Only an idiot would think so. Or put significant value on something obviously valueless.
From the posting reply page: "NO profanity, NO personal attacks, NO racism or violence in posts. "
Surely you can manage to get your point across without calling people names directly...
“Yes, anyone stupid enough to not vote for an obviously successful person just because they don’t have a degree will be voting democrat.”
Retard, say it with me: P-R-I-M-A-R-I-E-S. You see, in the USA - that’s the country we’re in in case you didn’t know - we have what are called PRIMARIES. That’s when Republicans run against Republicans and Democrats run against Democrats. And Walker’s lack of degree - no matter how unimportant you might think it is (as do I) - might be an issue for many voters. That’s called reality.
“A degree isn’t a magic bullet for Walker any more than amnesty is a magic bullet for the GOP-E.”
And who is saying that a degree is a magic bullet for Walker? Anyone at all? Anyone in the world?
“Only an idiot would think so. Or put significant value on something obviously valueless.”
Clearly there are people - including Walker - who do not consider it worthless. Are you even paying attention? HE’S THE ONE GETTING THE DEGREE. He must think it matters, and he is undoubtedly right even if you and I think it doesn’t matter.
Here in the USA, the GOP-E cheats during primaries and changes the rules so that people like Romney get 100% of Florida delegates when only 50% should have been seated, because Florida had an early primary.
Maybe you should pull up your big-girl panties and quit worrying about what some tiny fraction of voters MIGHT think.
A little bit of testicular fortitude would go a long way right now.
It is unseemly.
Abe Lincoln did OK without any degree whatsoever.
If he does get his degree, that would be icing on the cake.
Or are you one of the Republicans that thinks amnesty guarantees the hispanic vote for a liberal GOP?
That’s not reasoned discourse. So you’re a hypocrite as well.
And Truman didn't pass the buck.
So? Do you think that?
“I asked a question.”
And your question made no sense and had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING I SAID.
“So? Do you think that?”
I think I’ll just let you stew.
I'm not your enemy. I am the enemy of those that want to cave before conflict ever happens. I am the enemy of those that borrow trouble about what 'people might think'. The GOP-E has declared me their enemy, and they would rather fight those like me, than liberal democrats.
You’re full of it all around.
Nope. Real cook, real vet, real conservative. If you were closer, I'd offer bread and beer to make peace.
I would take you up on that.
