I would vote for Bill Gates to be President of my computer division..

then again, Windows 8 was horrible. No...

Just because a guy knows how to corner the market doesn't mean he knows how to run a country.

Never saw the inside of a school of any kind:
Andrew Carnegie
Coco Chanel
Mary Kay Ash
Henry Ford

High School Drop Outs:
Richard Branson
Walt Disney
Simon Cowell
Kirk Kerkorian
Quentin Tarantino
Mike Hudack
David Karp
George Foreman
Carl Henry Lindner Jr
Vidal Sassoon

College Drop Outs:
Larry Ellison
Ted Turner
Ralph Lauren
Howard Hughes
Giorgio Armani
Jenny Craig
Rachel Ray
Steve Jobs
Bill Gates
Paul Allen
Michael Dell
Mark Zuckerberg

I'm pretty sure none of these folks were lazy, had no initiative or losers. Again, I'm ALL for education but you can't tell me you can't be successful without that piece of paper.

gates built a small company into a billion dollar+ per year corporation, and made many of his employees millionaires. management principles apply to any company, or government management position. and do you really think that obama knows how to run a country? or carter?

As long as they've applied themselves within some form of prior leadership and skills I wouldn't exactly have a problem.

Obama has been running the country for 6 years and we haven't fallen into the ocean yet. Pretty sure he knows what he is doing.

I guess you would vote for Oprah or Rob Johnson as well..

Same old, same old for the Dems. They just cannot imagine a conservative as worthy. Typical down their nose view.

I happen to be one of those without a degree but have FAR surpassed my peers who have degrees, even those with PHD's. I loved college and did extremely well academically but I made a decision to take a different path for multiple reasons.

Obviously, I do not "lack initiative" and I most certainly planned for the long-term. What I did "put aside" was the time and the money it was taking to get my degree and instead used both to fast track my career. Doing this increased my "future gains" far more than I ever imagined or could have gained if I'd wasted my time and money to finish college instead of jumping on an amazing opportunity that presented itself at the time.

As I and others have pointed out, numerous times, Wisconsin voters have had three chances to turn him out. They have not; as recently as three months ago. Academes, college students and unionistas can be noisey, at times souding larger than their numbers. Just noise. Sort of like a toddlers temper tantrum.
