Well, we weren't calling Walker Neidermeyer, his fellow students were. But I'm guessing Clinton would be more like Eric Stratton in college.

Most of his supporters are creationists, so no they don't.

OMG, you really think this will make a difference. Statements like that are really far reaching. Gee, I wonder how you feel about Obama's big ears or his skinny body?

I'm actually not a republican but yeah, when you start mocking adults over their formal education level....it's elitism. I know many bright, successful people that did not go to college.

Your comment about a grade schooler is a moronic strawman.

Tell you what, next time you are in a public gathering like a wedding or some other function, loudly state what a moron someone is for not having a college education. Then look around and see how many people are looking at you like you are a tone deaf jerk.

I'm sorry you don't see how offensive you are being because it fits your politics.

I would not vote for Walker. Compare him to Jeb... Jeb looks more presidential, IMO.
And I want someone who stands up to what he believes in, can make us all proud to be Americans again, someone who knows what it is like to be middle class and someone who can gain the respect of world leaders since the present administration has pretty much destroyed this.

I bet you have a advanced degree to come up with that kind of insightful and knowledgeable political commentary. PhD at least, and probably post-doc, and from an elite institution.

I think a college degree should be required..if its required of lower level employees of the government.
While I don't think it should be required, it is sufficiently odd to me to make Mr. Walker less worthy of support. Then again, over 65% of American voters DO NOT have Bachelor Degrees, so I would not underestimate his Joe Six-pack appeal.

(And for the love of God, do not mention Bill Gates as an example. Bill had a near perfect SAT score, dropped out of Harvard at age 20 after displaying prodigious programming skills, and founded a company at age 21 to become the richest man in the world. That is not the same as Scott Walker bailing out of a crappy school with a 2.5 GPA in humanities.)

Social media; the new high school rumor mill/bullying weapon. It's easy to be a jerk, to get your yucks, without any accountability. No wonder the millenials show up so poorly against their peers in the world.

Centrally-controlled education for over 40 years has wrought this. But, I digress.
