Well over a year ago I wrote a post titled
The man democrats fear the most is already under attack by Obama
Walker has endured not one, but two secret “John Doe” probes into his campaign finances. Scurrilous democrats are utterly desperate to find something- anything- that can derail the Walker Express. They have been trolling for years unable to come with anything that will stick.
It is so rife with desperation that the democrat Nazis were issuing subpoenas to Walker allies in an effort to squeeze them until a judge shut that down.
Prosecutors in the John Doe investigation into spending and fundraising during the raucous Wisconsin recall elections were dealt a major procedural blow Friday, according to sources.
The five-county investigation remains open, but subpoenas issued in the probe to conservative political groups supporting Gov. Scott Walker were quashed, sources familiar with the development said. The ruling — which is sealed — raises First Amendment concerns about the subpoenas.
There is absolutely no question in my mind where this is coming from.
As Walker rises in prominence the left wing media has declared jihad on him. It’s no secret that Scott Walker didn’t finish college but you are going to hear that theme endlessly from the left over the next two years as if it was some kind of disqualifier. FWIW, here’s a list of billionaires who didn’t go to college.
Time magazine took a shot at letting people know in 2013 that Walker didn’t complete college.
Then came the ugly and wild assertions that Scott Walker was “kicked out” of college. According to Politifact Wisconsin the Wisconsin democrat party website ran this under its banner “The “Essence” of Dirty Tricks: Dropping out at Marquette”:
“Scott Walker was kicked out of student elections at Marquette University after masterminding a scheme that destroyed newspapers critical of him. Walker either dropped out or was forced out not long after.”
It was scrubbed since to read:
•Scott Walker ceased participation in student elections at Marquette University after masterminding a scheme that destroyed newspapers critical of him.
Because their accusation was a lie.
The Democratic Party of Wisconsin scrubbed its website Wednesday of accusations that Gov. Scott Walker was kicked out of Marquette University and student elections there.
The move was in response to a PolitiFact Wisconsin investigation that found no evidence Walker was forced out of either.
In the story published Wednesday, PolitiFact reported that Marquette, with Walker’s permission, released a letter that said he left voluntarily in spring 1990 and was in good standing each term. That means no conduct issues, academic or otherwise, blocked his registration.
“While we still stand behind our sources, only Scott Walker can clarify what happened in his time at Marquette University, and we’ll afford the governor the respect of taking him at his word on this,” Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate told the Journal Sentinel. “Accordingly, we’ve updated our website.”
Daily Kos said Walker was a
“very, very bad man”
The sniveling little cockroaches at Kos weren’t content with that. A recent article blares this:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker claims to have a master’s degree
Upon what was this based? On Walker saying:
“I’ve got a master’s degree in taking on the big government special interests, and I think that is worth more than anything else that anybody can point to.”
That’s pretty pathetic but I guess they know their audience.
One social media outlet posted this:
“Walker had a 2.3 GPA when he was asked to leave Marquette University for cheating. Is it any wonder he’s attacking teachers now?”
Then the NY Time weighed in about Walker’s “nasal, Wisconsin flatness”, twice bringing up inappropriate emails by someone on his staff and unsuccessfully trying to stick them to Walker. One staffer was fired and as for the other?
Mr. Walker said his staff now underwent an elaborate training process and was required to sign a code of conduct that includes strict ethics laws and a standard of professionalism. “We apply that across the board,” he said.
The Times conveniently reminds us of the KGB tactics of Wisconsin democrats:
Under Wisconsin law, no one involved is permitted to discuss the secret investigation.
It’s been going on for three years with nothing to show for it.
So now it’s the Washington Post’s turn to smear Walker. “As Scott Walker mulls White House bid, questions linger over college exit” screams the headline.
Only if you’re an intentionally ignorant putz it is and I am going to have to assume David Fahrenthold is one of them.
MILWAUKEE — 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.
There’s lots of innuendo too:
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.
“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.
This is a most unoriginal rehash of past stories but it is necessary one in the left wing media jihad on Scott Walker. It’s a shame there wasn’t this level of scrutiny on Barack Obama’s drug dealers. Fahrenthold could have and should have included this from Politifact:
With that in mind, we asked Walker if he would allow Marquette to comment on his academic and conduct record. He did.
“Gov. Scott Walker was a student at Marquette from fall of 1986 until spring 1990 and was a senior in good standing when he voluntarily withdrew from Marquette,” the university said in a statement.
That means that no conduct issues, academic or otherwise, blocked Walker from continuing in school at the time of his departure, MU spokesman Brian Dorrington told us in early December 2013.
When we asked Dorrington whether any conduct issues were on Walker’s earlier school record, he said Walker would have to permit release of that information. Walker did so in response to our request.
“Governor Walker was in good standing each term while he was enrolled at Marquette University and when he left Marquette University,” Associate Vice Provost Anne Deahl said in a letter. “Governor Walker was not expelled or suspended from the university at any time.”
Fahrenthold also wrote this:
But before that streak came a string of defeats: the campus election, his failure to finish college and his first campaign for state office.
This is the sort of thing that often makes or breaks people. Walker is both a survivor and a winner, and that’s what scares the left wing media jihadists the most.
