After not giving a hoot about Barack Obama's college grades, teachers, or classmates, the MSM "discovers" how to do some journalism:
But in his classes, some professors said they never saw the same level of focus on schoolwork. In introductory French, for instance, Walker routinely barged into the room after the lesson had begun, loudly making excuses.
“He would talk to me, you know, say, ‘I’m very sorry, I had very important business’ ” with the student government, instructor Marc Boutet recalled. “I’m like, ‘En français ! En français!’ ”
Boutet said the other students tired of the daily disruptions. They started preemptively stealing Walker’s favorite desk, so he had nowhere to sit when he arrived.
“I think I gave him a D-minus,” Boutet said, adding that he saw Walker years later, and the two laughed about the class. French, Boutet said, “was not his thing.”
Even in politics class, Walker could appear disengaged.
“He seemed utterly bored,” said Michael Fleet, who taught him in a class on the politics of the Third World. Fleet said he’d hoped to get Walker into debates with the liberals in the room. But it didn’t work. Walker would only give occasional short speeches that made conservative arguments.
“It wasn’t always on key. It wasn’t always in response to anything,” Fleet said. “He wasn’t engaged. It was like he came in with a script.”
I don't recall comments from any of then-Senator Obama's instructors, do you?
I actually think this helps Walker. I bet there are a ton of potential voters out there who have a similar history as the Governor - they went to a "regular" college (not Ivy League), didn't care much for what school offerede, and went on to begin their lives. I think it is identifiable with people, and since Walker hasn't run away from his history, it becomes a non-factor for the guy on the street.
Our intellectual betters inside the beltway will laugh at his pedigree, and tell us why a guy like Walker isn't qualified to be President because he didn't graduate, but they won't be able to discount the successes he has had as a Governor and a politician.
Walker will resonate with the masses because of this.
If Walker stays true to his history (and why wouldn't he?), he'll do fine.
So if you are scoring at home, if you question the academic credentials of a Democrat, you are racist; if you look into a Republican's educational background, that is good journalism.
