Manufacturing yet another nonissue to demonstrate the enormous and systemic bias of the media toward a system of government that has increased poverty and lowered education and living standards wherever and whenever tried, the media now thinks Walker not having a college degree is an issue.
The media cheers for an economic and political system that has caused the Middle Class to lose 1/3 of its wealth since Obama & Pelosi came to power. To put that in perspective, if you are, say, 50 yrs old, and have been working for 30 years, ten of those years of your life and career were totally wasted thanks to Democrat teachers, Democrat voters, Democrat politicians, and the economic and social model they and the media support.
Governor Walker, on the other hand, actually has implemented more liberty, leading to better economic and social results than the Left can accept. So they are beginning a two-year tear down of his success in order to ensure the implementation of yet more misery.
The media is OK with a serial liar in the White House about whom we know nothing. (Did he graduate college? Which one? Found a Professor who remembers him? Seen a transcript?) And they’re OK with a complete naïf (“Russian reset”) AND serial liar as the leading (only?) Democrat candidate for 2016.
But rather than discuss merit, experience, policy and character (If you like your policy you can keep your policy, lower your bills by $2500, Red Line in Syria, Benghazi, IRA, F&F…), knowing they would lose by pursuing ANY of those – actually important – topics, they’re focusing on a college degree.
Hence, some two word answers to questions regarding the necessity of a degree for the person in the Oval Office:
MSM Q: Don’t you need a degree to be successful as a president in today’s dangerous world, with ISIS, Putin, Ukraine?
A: Harry Truman.
Q: Yes, that’s true. But America is far more technological today. Don’t you think times have changed?
A: Bill Gates.
Q: Yes, I understand, but he’s sort of a one-off and very specific in skill set – the technological revolution is far broader than one operating system, don’t you think? Look at the myriad devices, systems, connections and tools we use every day.
A: Steve Jobs.
Q: OK, I’ll grant you that. But in terms of energy, war, weapons – the kinds of issues the entire West – the world – now is grappling with..?
A: Albert Einstein.
Q: True – but isn’t it reasonable for the public to demand a highly-educated president, perhaps even requiring a law degree, as we try to fix huge problems – for example our healthcare system?
A: Barack Obama.
