Not sure what this means relative to our voters, but the election of 2016 is about TWO YEARS AWAY.

The world is a mess.....we have serious legislation issues....economy issues and on and on and on.....and our voters choose to rant on about stuff that is fodder for National Enquirer, although event hey would raise their eyebrows at the shallow nature of some.

Better than doing unintentional stand-up comedy on the campaign trail.

Another favorite, Sen Rand Paul has always told people that he holds two bachelor degrees from Baylor. Well, Salon.com is reporting that he doesn't even have one degree from Baylor. If this is true, how did he get into Duke Medical School without having a BS. Could you research this and report back? It could tell us who is qualified and who is not qualified.
Back in the 60's and 70's some students were accepted into medical school without a bachelor's degree. Not to say that they didn't do undergrad studies - they did, but because they were found to be exceptional students, and as long as they completed the necessary prerequisite courses, they could be admitted without completion of a BS. I'm not sure if any medical school permits that today, but as you can see it puts Rand Paul in a pretty different light when looking at it from this perspective.

Yeah, I am not sure I could support Paul, but this is ludicrious to talk about college degrees.

Is this what politics has come to ? When Dean made his initial comment on MORNING JOE on MSNBC, I thought everbody, Dems and Repubs on the set would choke. There is a certain segment to take all these elections right straight to the name calling, one liners.

IRONY is that these obviously not well educated or well read people are making fun of people who have more going for them in one pocket that these posters could ever hope for.

Again, these nim wits attack a thread with the "bathroom wall" stuff and the OP's entire thread is gone.

Rand Paul caught lying about his college record - Salon.com

Senator Rand Paul said in a speech this past Thursday that he has two bachelor degrees from Baylor, but his office had to walk that back later and say he does not have any degree from Baylor.

People are being beheaded and you are...well, not sure what you are doing...it is a pure mystery...certainly not discussing anything.

African Americans and all minorities will continue to suffer disproportionately high unemployment rates and dismal future prospects. It's quite likely we'll fall back into recession under a tax and choke Democrat administration and that will prompt the Fed to continue its artificial juicing of Wall St. We've all benefitted GREATLY by the terrific returns on our investment portfolios due to the anemic growth, so selfishly I'd like to see the good times continue rolling on Wall St., but I'm torn knowing so many are suffering and will continue to suffer needlessly under Democrat policies.
This is a great post ... and I think some of the Dems on this board are somewhat confused by it because they don't fully get your points

You may be correct ... I mean, right now, our (uh, not really mine) President is steadily evolving into the Dear Leader

This is why Cheney (AKA Darth) at the last moment changed his residency from Texas to Wyoming in 2000 as had he been a Texan he could not have received that state's electoral college votes.
I did not know about that elector requirement ... insightful and thanks for posting.

Uh, you're making this claim when your side of the spectrum delights in using the disgusting "*********" comment? Give us all a break.

You know, it's increasingly amusing to me to watch liberals immediately default to the "racist sexist yadda" charge when they can't think of anything else to say. Your side really needs to come up with something more clever as well as something that's accurate.

Well, as those of us who went to college and then grad school, we all know that attending college and GPA correlates 100% to everything needed to succeed in life, right? I'm thinking Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zimmerman ... oh wait, none of those guys have degrees. Never mind.

The college degree (lack therof) is a red herring. Walker has shown steadfast conservative leadership and actually has executive ability, unlike the Selfie Joke we currently have in the Oval Office.

I'm also reminded of William F. Buckley's famous quote ... which certainly applies in the age of Obama.

I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in... - William F. Buckley, Jr. at BrainyQuote

Howard Dean's attack, along with the WaPo article, makes it clear that Walker is "the guy" the Left really fears. As well they should .... once we elect him, he will clean house in DC and it will be quite fun to watch.
