Scott Walker’s revisionist biography

During a meeting with reporters last week hosted by National Review, Republican Gov. Scott Walker explained his failure to actually graduate from Marquette University as a decision he made because he wanted to get a job and take care of his children.

“The reason I went to college, in large part, was not just to get an education for an education’s sake, but to get a job,” Walker said of his decision to drop out of school. At first he tried to be a part time student, but quickly the births of his children took that option off the table.

What Scott Walker conveniently glossed over is the fact that Scott Walker dropped out of Marquette University in 1990 and as far as I can tell never returned.

Oh yeah, and his first kid wasn’t born until 1994.

What a liar.

    It will be a sad day for the United States if a college dropout is elected as President.

      Tell that to;
      George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, Grover Cleveland, and Harry Truman.

        I do not think Governor Walker being a college dropout is our strongest point to win an election, especially when Democrats need to win over “Some College” voters. At the same time Walker is not telling the truth about why he left.

    Ho hum; just one more Walker “Pants on fire.”

    But doesn’t “dropped out” instead of “kicked out” for two fibs in one tall tale qualify Walker for a prestigious “scorched legs” award?


  • I’m not wild about the idea, but I think I’m going to have to break down and read that book. Want details on the education issue? Read mine; it’s in there. 😉

    Thanks for the info, Zach. Problem is folks can read Walker’s story on the front page of the newspaper while damn few will ever see yours. Mass media is tailored for the lazy American which means most of us.

    In fact, I’m betting the Insurance companies knew that, the whole time they were negotiating the ACA deal with President Obama, the public wouldn’t go along with a difficult sign up. And thusly sucked him in. Add the cancellation factor and all they had to do was await their Coup d’état

    Although…. Do you remember the rumors from immediately before the recall election that he had fathered a child with a fellow student? ( That didn’t seem to be anything at the time but now I’m wondering again. Maybe he’s confused about which child is which.



    Did he include the part about plagiarism?
