143 Days… Experience really is an issue!

You couldn’t get a job at McDonalds and become district manager after 143 days of experience.

You couldn’t become chief of surgery after 143 days of experience.

You couldn’t get a job as a teacher and be principal after 143 days of experience.

You couldn’t join the military and become a colonel after a 143 days of experience.

You couldn’t get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchor after 143 days of experience.


From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That’s how many days the Senate was actually in session and working.

After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of Abraham Lincoln, FDR, JFK, and Ronald Reagan. 143 days.

And, strangely, a large sector of the American public accepts this. We wouldn’t accept this in our own line of work, yet some of us accept this for the President of the United States of America?

Come on folks, we are not voting for the next American Idol!

  1. Hi – great write-up. As you know, the healthcare plan is under fire. We don’t yet know everything there is to know about it, but one thing we all know is that it’s going to cost this country a lot of money. What parts of the plan that got passed do you think will stay? Anyway, cool blog… I’m subscribed to your feed now so I’ll check in more often!
