A candidate with “experience”

29 01 2008

People kill me with this experience issue. They are using this as an excuse for not voting for Obama.

He does not have enough experience to run this country. Neither did Reagan who was an actor before becoming the President, neither did Clinton except being the governor of Arkansas–an appointment that he did not finish– before becoming the President. Neither did G W Bush who was the governor of Texas–which is a figure head position, the governor has no power in Texas, the Lt. Governor carries the power–before being the president for 8 years.

So tell me what is the truth behind this statement? They say Hillary has more experience because she served along side of her husband while he was governor and president. I feel this is ludicrous because if I were to put on my resume that I have experience in a particular field because I served along side my husband, I would be laughed out of the office.

I believe there are other reasons why people use this excuse for not voting for Obama, just like the excuse that he smokes as a reason for not voting for him and the reason that he never served in the military for not voting for him. To me the underlying issue is race. I prefer these people to just be honest with themselves. I am not one to always say people are racist but there are things that are so obvious and this is one of them.

There is no other candidate appropriate for this office at this time like Obama. No other candidate so honest and true. No other candidate preaching unity in a nation torn apart or a society on the decline. No other candidate who has been successful in getting a government torn apart by partisan bickery to work together, and no other candidate who has been successful in unifying the races in this country.

To me his “lack” of experience is of little consequence but his leadership skills speaks volumes. Furthermore, if truth be told, Obama has more experience then Hillary in legislature law and working in the government–his 10 years (8 in the state senate and 2 in the U.S. senate) vs her 6 years in the U.S. senate. She just trumps him in working in politics.

So again, what are you afraid of–change? Change always comes and we must learn to adapt or we would die out like the dinosaurs.

Obama stands for change and this country is ready for it. I hope you will vote for him in your primaries. I know I will.
