"Experience" and Barack Obama

After watching Sarah Palin’s sarcastic speech I needed an antidote, and there in my inbox was a submission by John Dudley, a fellow member of the Miami Beach Democratic Club. Thanks, John, for your artful reminder of all the wisdom that Barack Obama represents. Such a contrast to Republicans with their complete experience doing the wrong thing.

Subject: Experience and Barack Obama

By John Dudley

1377, from O.Fr. Experience, from L. experientia "knowledge gained by repeated trials," from experientem (nom. experiens), knowledge or practical wisdom gained from what one has observed, encountered, or undergone: a man of experience: active participation in events or activities, leading to the accumulation of knowledge or skill.

Much has been said about Barack Obama's inexperience. This is somewhat true.

  • Barack has no experience in lying our Country into war. Barack has no experience in making military decisions where our brave soldiers have died or have been wounded as a result of misinformation.
  • Barack has no experience in the failed economic policies that delivered the worst June U.S. Stock index decline since the Great Depression of 1930.
  • Barack has no experience in presiding over a housing crisis with record foreclosures causing millions of Americans to lose their homes.
  • Mr. Obama has no experience in supporting an administration that issues higher inflation for gasoline and food which are the staples for American working families.
  • He has no experience presiding over an unacceptable high school dropout rate and still no healthcare coverage for millions of Americans.
  • Barack Obama has no experience with supporting the failed governmental policies of the Republicans and the Bush/McCain Administration.

This 'experience' of the last eight years of our government should never be repeated. This 'experience' of a completely disastrous, inept, divisive Republican Administration is NOT what this country needs. It is because Barack Obama has no experience in these failures that he should be the next President of the United States.
