After Attacks on Lack of a College Degree, Scott Walker Powerfully Responds

What elitist snobbery, to say the least. As if anyone has the right to criticize others choices on their personal education. Don’t worry though- the liberal left always have something to say if you’re the slightest shade of conservative:[1]


Wisconsin governor and probable 2016 Republican presidential candidate, Scott Walker, responded to criticism from nose-in-the-air elitist progressives, who have been attacking Walker because he pursued a career rather than finishing college.

Appearing on FOX News’ “The Kelly File” with Megyn Kelly on Tuesday, Walker took aim at former DNC head Howard Dean for insinuating that Walker wasn’t smart enough to be president because he didn’t have a college degree.

Walker told Kelly that Dean’s comments represent the “kind of the elitist government-knows-best, top-down approach from Washington we’ve heard for years.”

Walker then took a shot at the Ivy League educated, former “choom gang” member, Obama (who said he sought out Marxist professors, remember?), powerfully making the case that there’s no correlation between a good president and the level of education they obtained.

“I don’t know about you, Megyn, but we’ve had an Ivy League-trained lawyer in the White House for the last six years, who was pretty good at reading off the teleprompter, but has done a lousy job leading this country,” he told Kelly. “I’d rather have a fighter who’s actually proven he can take on the big government special interests and win,” he asserted.

Walker could have pointed out that the nation suffers from having perhaps the most buffoonish politician in history, college-educated Joe Biden, in the position of Vice President.

I have to admit, my curiosity has gotten the better of me. What university, exactly, offers a college degree with a side of competency? I have had plenty of people in my life with and without college degrees, and let me tell ya, a diploma doesn’t fix stupid, sweetie. Smart is smart, common sense is common sense, and you just cannot compare a degree to life experience. Sometimes we forgo things in life like college and if you’re scrappy, like Governor Walker, you survive just fine. No degree required.
