“As governor, I’ll find ways to do more with less…and sign an amendment that will protect funds like these from future raids.” – Scott Walker Statement, 7/20/10
The only problem with Walker’s statement? The governor of Wisconsin doesn’t sign Constitutional amendments.
Clearly, Scott Walker needs to brush up on what the Wisconsin State Constitution says about what the governor of our great state can and can’t do, because he ought to know the job he aspires to hold.

Hah! Well I guess he could just run up to the official amendment document and sign his name all over it if he wanted to.
Don’t look now, but it seems Barrett isn’t much better at constitutional scholarship…
One of his brilliant ideas for his “diet” is:
Eliminate the offices of Secretary of State and State Treasurer. These two offices
have outgrown their usefulness and can be combined, with some duties performed by the
Lt. Governor or another state agency. Estimated annual savings: more than $1 million.
Now he can propose it all he wants, but he’ll need the Legislature to push it (twice) and then send it to the voters. His opinion is about all he can offer.
Good point Publius. Those $1 million annual savings can’t and won’t be seen in the next budget or the budget after that or probably the budget after that. But places like this website only seem to focus on supposed gimmicks of Scott Walker.
Zach, Walker should be excused the Wisconsin Constitution is covered during last semester of college senior year.
And there it is – liberal elitism.
Boy, someone sure can’t take a joke.
What defines “liberal elitism,” in your opinion?
Liberal elitism comes in many forms. In this instance, it’s the lack of a college degree. Interesting it’s a joke now that I interjected, before it was a “good point.”
While ID’s comment was no doubt made with his tongue firmly in his cheek, he did make a good point in that there’s no telling what Scott Walker missed out on by dropping out of college without getting a degree.
Oh for Christ’s sake Zach that’s a dumb comment. We know exactly what he missed out on – about 6 or 8 classes. I had a roomate & good friend drop out 5 credits shy (with a 3.8 GPA) I though he was stupid and not knowing what Walker had going on in his life, I couldn’t say for sure, but I’d guess he was probably stupid to not finish it up as well. But you act like there so some enormous opportunity lost – the only difference between people who get that far along & don’t graduate vs. those who do is a damn piece of paper that is held in way too high of regards.
I actually honestly wish I would have dropped out. Financially & career-wise, I’d be much further ahead than I am now.
I didn’t say it was an enormous opportunity lost; I simply said he certainly missed out on some things by not getting his degree.
Peggy West got her degree, is it possible she missed out on anything?
Clearly she missed out on Geography.
I don’t think the majority of the hard-working, non-college-educated, common-sense Wisconsinites would appreciate that attitude.
I was simply pointing out that there could be things Scott Walker missed out on in his college experience by dropping out before he finished.
Walker’s incomplete degree sure was enough to beat Reimer’s wonky CV and Lena “I’m a lawyer but don’t understand what’s going on” Taylor.
Lena Taylor was one of the worst candidates I’ve ever seen, so it’s not saying much that Walker beat her.
