    Default GOP Candidate Scott Walker

    Gov. Scott Walker may run for President

    Scott Walker never graduated from college. So what?

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...llege-so-what/

    In the wake of Dave Fahrenthold's great piece about Scott Walker's college years, Democrats have begun to openly question the Wisconsin governor's ability and readiness to be president, given that he doesn't have a college degree.

    Former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean went on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" late last week and called Walker "unknowledgeable" because he didn't graduate from college. "I worry about people being president of the United States not knowing much about the world and not knowing much about science," Dean added. "I worry about that."

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    So, Should a college degree be required for office?
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    I say Hell NO ! ! !

    A completed college degree is not required to go to Medical School or Law School. Did you know that?

    Here is a list of the top 100 entrepreneurs that never received a college degree. Many of them you will know while others decided to remain slightly under the radar.

    http://elitedaily.com/news/business/...ollege-degree/

    I've listed the top 20 of the top 100 that never attained a college degree:

    1. Abraham Lincoln, lawyer, U.S. president. Finished one year of formal schooling, self-taught himself trigonometry, and read Blackstone on his own to become a lawyer.

    He has about a zero percent chance of becoming President anyway, it's a moot point.

    He's polling very well I hear.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    He's too easy too paint as an extremist. The left will have a field day with him.

    Scott Walker has been attacked viciously since he dared take office in the birthplace of the American Progressive movement. They have thrown every single piece of dirt at this man and he has won each time. He beat back two elections and a recall. That's impressive. The fact that he did it in Wisconsin is mind boggling. More so when you factor in that he had The White House, Unions, media , and George Soros' money and multiple organizations to go up against. I'm not on the Walker bandwagon, but it is too early to dismiss him.

    The guy is gov of Wisconsin. I mean that state doesn't bleed red. Has to be crossing over to some Democrats or Independents to be elected twice.

    Scott Walker isn't Ronald Reagan.

    Ronald Reagan would never say "I'm going to punt on that one".

    It's so typical isn't it?

    Money and influence are good, unless it is being used for the other side.

    Can you imagine if some people on this site had billions, given how obsessed they are with left versus right?

    They would be doing the exact same thing.

    I dont fault the Kochs or Soros. Money is good.
