Because Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker…

March 27th, 2008

…is one semester from finishing his college education, generic cialis physician his challenger Lena Taylor has been trying to imply that her education makes her better qualified. According to this story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

At the forums, discount viagra one subtle but persistent theme from Taylor has been to suggest her own educational background makes her more qualified for the job than Walker.

Taylor has a law degree from Southern Illinois University. Walker left Marquette University about a semester before graduation for a full-time job.On Wednesday, at least three times Taylor noted she has a college degree. At the Marquette debate, she mentioned her degrees before stressing she finishes what she starts.

Walker has said he intends to complete his degree, though an effort to take classes part time at Marquette a few years back was derailed when his mother-in-law became ill.

Maybe Ms. Taylor would like to level some criticism at some other incompetents who didn’t manage to finish their schooling:

Paul Allen
Reporter Carl Bernstein
Entrepreneur Richard Branson
Founder of Dell Computers Michael Dell
Harrison Ford
Bill Gates
Steve Jobs
Will Smith
Steven Spielberg

…just to name a few.

    Yikes!!! You are kidding ?

    Scott Walker is the only incompetent on that list!

    Know anyone else who was just ONE semester short of graduation from Marquette University and never went back for those few credits and potetial rewards of that degree?

    Maybe there is something to the rumor that Scott Walker was asked to leave MU under less than honorable circumstances..

    The truth is out there….

    Another lame unsubstantiated “rumor”…and just someone trying to discredit Scott Walker. You may disagree with him…but he is far from incompetent.

    Walker was NOT asked to leave Marquette. If he had been, they wouldn’t have allowed him to come back to take classes or be asking him to come back and finish his degree.

    Yes….the truth is out there. You just seem to want to make up something other than the truth.

    Don’t forget Larry Ellison, founder of Oracle.

    BTW, Southern Illinois doesn’t exactly strike me as a bastion of law schools.

    Lena Taylor is living proof that law school can’t be that hard.

    Hell, I’ve met a lot of fools and idiots that had degrees. Just because you have an education doesn’t mean you can think with it.

    I don’t need an education. I’m an idiot!!!
