Scott Walker's Marquette Exit

This was inevitable.

Of course, the Leftist media are "investigating" Gov. Scott Walker.

The Washington Post is examining Walker's college years and his exit from the now disgraced, Marquette University.

Scott Walker was gone. Dropped out. And in the spring of his senior year.

In 1990, that news stunned his friends at Marquette University. Walker, the campus’s suit-wearing, Reagan-loving politico — who enjoyed the place so much that he had run for student body president — had left without graduating.

To most of the Class of 1990 — and, later, to Wisconsin’s political establishment — Walker’s decision to quit college has been a lingering mystery.

Not even his friends at Marquette were entirely sure why he never finished. Some had heard that a parent had fallen ill, or maybe there was some financial strain. Others thought he had simply had enough of school.

Walker clearly liked college politics more than college itself. He had managed to line up 47 campaign endorsements, including ones from the ski team and the varsity chorus, but he had trouble showing up on time for French.

And, after four years, he had faltered on both fronts. He’d lost an ugly race for president. And he apparently had far too few credits to graduate.

Kevin Miller, who knew Walker from the Marquette Students for Life, described Walker’s thinking at the time as: “ ‘I’d rather have a full-time job and have the rest of my time to spend on politics.’ ” He said Walker intended to go back to school at some point. “I never got any indication that it was anything other than that. Or anything more than that.”

Walker’s own explanation has been short and simple. He got a job. He meant to go back. But he just never found the time.
"Lingering mystery."

Yeah, whatever.

Hey! Washington Post!

Did you ever consider investigating OBAMA'S college years?

I mean really investigating. Isn't it time to dig into that mystery?
