Scott Walker didn't finish college. Would that make him a bad president - Politico

"...But they don't. Other things equal, countries with college-educated leaders and countries led by politicians who didn't finish college have similar rates of economic growth, similar unemployment rates, similar inflation rates, similar numbers of wars and major work stoppages, and similar levels of income inequality. When it comes to major social outcomes that voters care about, it just doesn't seem to matter whether a country's national executive has a college diploma.The same was true when we looked at an innovative anti-corruption program in Brazil. Every year since 2003, an anti-corruption office in Brazil's federal government has randomly selected 250 municipalities and extensively audited how they spend their money. We looked at the data, and corruption appears to be just as common in cities run by college-educated mayors as it is in cities whose mayors didn't finish college...." see full article

Scott Walker Presidential Bid Self-Destructs On ABC's 'This Week ...
"...I admit it it's pretty hard to argue with someone who realizes that some new, big and bold ideas would be a very welcome addition to the debate when it comes to sifting through who would make the best presidential candidates for 2016.While Scott Walker made the case Sunday morning for the importance of putting these new, big and bold ideas on display for the 2016 election, he made an even more compelling case for why he is not the man capable of doing so...." see full article

Scott Walkers Revolt Back Home - Politico

"...It's a scene that's played out more than once this spring as lawmakers wrangle with Walker's budget and other issues. His frequent out-of-state trips have given Democrats plenty of fodder to declare Walker an absentee governor placing his expected presidential run above the needs of Wisconsinites.Walker has repeatedly brushed off the suggestion, pointing out he's on the phone constantly with his chief of staff and legislative leaders, no matter where he is. He's also scored significant victories on the things he likes to tout on the national campaign trail, like holding down property taxes, and GOP lawmakers insist publicly the governor is just as available to them as he was in each of his first two budgets, even if he's often not at the table...." see full article

Scott Walker is the only potential presidential candidate who can go to a biker rally and mean it

"...Scott Walker hasn't yet said that he's running for president. But the Wisconsin governor is working to brand himself as the plain-speaking, Miller-drinking, cheap-clothes-wearing candidate who understands the struggles of the middle class. And he rides a Harley.This weekend is an opportunity to showcase it: He's taking part in a Roast and Ride fundraiser for Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst (R), who drew national attention last year when she ran campaign ads saying that she castrated hogs growing up on a farm and that she isn't afraid to make 'em squeal in Washington. (Walker's political organization recently hired Ernst's former strategist, David Polyansky.)..." see full article
