    He's a Republican. Nothing is overlooked, nor forgiven.

    When I was in bible college the founder of the institution told me, "If God has called you to preach never stoop to be president". In light of modern politics his advice makes perfect sense.

    I could be wrong (I do not know the percentage), but I think that the majority of the voting public either did not attend or finish college.

    And the reference to Reagan was appropriate.

    I think that President Truman, whom I say in 1948 during his whistle stop tour of the Mid West, only had an eighth grade education. He was a Southern Baptist, who had enough sense to ask God to help him.

    He was also known to specialise in profanity.

    Ah, yes. Sometimes even the GOP agreed with him as when a newspaper columnist wrote some discouraging remarks about Margaret Truman:

    I do not think that is the type of language that earned him his reputation.

    In 1950, that was not one bit polite language, let me tell you. It was off color but now I think that it is very funny and what a President should say to a newspaper critic who says that his daughter can't sing. Why, the idea....

    Notice that for a guy that didn't go to college, he got to the point and he even got a shot at another newspaper columnist Westbrook Pegler, who was sometimes called Westsewer Pegler in those days.

    It is worth noting that both the founders of Apple and Microsoft did finish college. College is good for some but can be stifling for others. Right now a lot of young people are piling up massive debt getting a college degree in some nonsense that won't get them a job!

    A lot of people are getting college degrees that are virtually worthless or require a more advanced degree to secure employment. Scott Walker must be a huge threat to the left's MSM, this is grasping straws. He didn't need to finish his degree to survive an $$$ recall election and then go on to win another term as governor.
