Abraham Lincoln only served one term in the House and wasn't even an incumbent when he was elected President. He had no "executive experience."

Doesn't anybody notice the complete mess the cowardly entrenched, "experienced" veteran Republicans like McCain, McConnell, Boehner, et al. have made of their party's cause? Hasn't anybody noticed that it's the youngest, least "experienced" Republicans in the House who are taking the firmest stand?

I’ve noticed. That’s why this issue doesn’t get any traction with me. I’m betting I’m not alone among the American public either.

Every single alternative, whether it be Palin, Bachmann, Perry, Pawlenty, Paul, Cain, Rubio, Santorum, or even freakin’ Romney would be a huge improvement on Obama.

I think the criticism is valid to a point, but the 2010 election showed us the base cares most about people's beliefs and the issues they champion than having tons of “experience”. Obama’s problem is not his lack of experience, but his far left ideology.

i don’t know that I’d use President Lincoln as an example. 1. A civil war broke out right after he was elected. 2. He had ONE clerk who he paid out of his own pocket. Do you know how big the executive branch is now? 3. Governor Palin has been taking a stand against Mr. Obama since September 2008, until today.

What good is it to be “experienced” if you are experienced at all the things that have made American politics corrupt?
