The same people going after Walker now let Obama completely off the hook.
The college careers of presidential candidates were staples during the 2000 and 2004 elections. Then in 2008, even as they were mocking Sarah Palin’s academic career, the media gave Obama a total pass.
And in 2012, when it was clear that Mitt Romney had far superior academic credentials than Barack Obama, the media just waved their royal hands over the issue of academics, declared it a non-issue, and focused on dog crates on the top of the car and binders full of women.
