In other words, he doesn’t want to be a lying, cheating, butt-kissing scumbag.</p></blockquote> <p>I get that, but it kind of brings to mind that he has absolutely no political experience.</p></blockquote> <p>Neither did George Washington</p></blockquote> <p>Oh for the love of… Why the heck do we keep bringing George Washington into this? He was the first president of a newly founded country. Of course he didn’t have experience with the political landscape, because prior to him there was none. Ben Carson is not George Washington. He’s not coming into a previously nonexistent political field. Also, he was a general so that does count as some experience.</p></blockquote> <p>The only point I’m trying to make is that you don’t need to be a career politician to be a president. Eisenhower wasn’t a politician either. I don’t support Ben Carson for president, but if your argument as to why he shouldn’t be president is that he had no political experience, that’s weak.</p></blockquote> <p>Eisenhower had military experience and was the governor of the American occupied territories in Germany. Still eons more experience than Carson. It is absolutely not a weak argument to point out that someone’s total lack of political experience might make them an ineffective president. Do you hear yourself? You keep throwing around the term “career politician”. I never said he had to be one. I said something more along the lines of “absolutely no political experience whatsoever”. Also, all you have to do to be president is be elected. That doesn’t mean you *should* be president. </p></blockquote> <p>So I guess where we disagree is that you believe political experience is necessary to be an effective president?</p></blockquote> <p>Yes. Much like I believe medical experience is necessary to be a good doctor. It’s the highest office in the land, I’d kinda like someone to know what they’re doing when they take it. Being a nice guy with good ideas isn’t good enough. Now if Carson held some smaller political roles and called back in four or eight years I would consider it.</p></blockquote> <p>Other considerations include the fact that he is very familiar with poverty due to his childhood, something this post seems to miss. The amount of insight he could deal out on that alone is tremendous. There are undoubtedly many places in the US that need help in aspects similar to his past. </p><p><b>For those who don’t know, he was failing at school horribly and his teachers seemed to consider his education a waste. The young black boy born to a single teenage mom didn’t seem to have a great path going for him.</b> His mom was working 2-3 jobs to support her kids and wanted to have a better life for them. So as she’s seeing her kids fail in school she decided that she wants to change that. She assigns for them to do book reports for her every week and makes them do their homework before going outside. <i>Her time of faking the ability to read their book reports pay off and her kids start doing better in school, until they’re top in the class.</i></p><p>Undoubtedly outside problems exist too but there could be so many inside problems he could fix.<i> <b>Even if it’s not as president there’s a lot of good he can do in the government even if it’s just as an adviser.</b></i></p></blockquote> <p>My post doesn&rsquo;t miss that at all. I&rsquo;ve already acknowledged elsewhere that he would be a good advisor or something of the sort. But with all due respect, who the heck cares that he grew up poor? What does that have to do with his suitability as president, which is what this post is about? That&rsquo;s why didn&rsquo;t spend much time talking about it.</p>

America, Anaconda, and Cars: DOESNT WANT TO BANPORN RESTRICTYOUR INTERNET,OR TAKEAWAY YOUR GUNS SUPPORTS GAY MARRIAGE, EDUCATION FOR ALL, AND UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE atleedala: I’m about to get all sorts of political. If you don’t like it, this is not the blog you’re looking for. Move along. Four years ago, I voted for a man who promised to bring change to our country. This year, I am planning on making the exact same vote. Plenty of people have many negative things to say about Barack Obama. Out of everything that has been said throughout not just this election year, but throughout the last four years, there is one simple statement that I absolutely cannot stand… “Obama hasn’t done anything the entire time he’s been in office.” (well, that and the whole, “OBAMA IS A MUSLIM TERRORIST” because believe it or not, there are still some idiots out there that truly believe this…) Here I have for you, ladies and gentlemen, is a list of 108 things Obama has accomplishedduring his presidency so far.  1. Saved the collapse of the American automotive industry by making GM restructure before bailing them out, and putting incentive money to help the industry 2. Shifted the focus of the war from Iraq to Afghanistan, and putting the emphasis on reducing terrorism where it should have been all along 3. Relaxed Anti-American tensions throughout the world 4. Signed order to close the prisoner “torture camp” at Guantanamo Bay 5. Has made the environment a national priority, and a primary source for job creation 6. Has made education a national priority by putting emphasis and money behind new ideas like charter schools, but speaking directly to school children in telling them they have to do their part. 7. Won the Nobel Peace Prize 8. $789 billion economic stimulus plan 9. Appointment of first Latina to the Supreme Court 10. Attractive tax write-offs for those who buy hybrid automobiles 11. Authorized construction/opening of additional health centers to care for veterans 12. Renewed dialogue with NATO and other allies and partners on strategic issues. 13. Beginning the process of reforming and restructuring the military 20 years after the Cold War to a more modern fighting force… this includes new procurement policies, increasing size of military, new technology and cyber units and operations, etc. 14. Better body armor is now being provided to our troops 15. “Cash for clunkers” program offers vouchers to trade in fuel inefficient, polluting old cars for new cars; stimulates auto sales 16. Changed the failing/status quo military command in Afghanistan 17. Closed offshore tax safe havens 18. Deployed additional troops to Afghanistan 19. Ended media “blackout” on war casualties; reporting full information 20. Ended previous policy of awarding no-bid defense contracts 21. . Ended media blackout on war casualties and the return of fallen soldiers to Dover AFB. 22. Ended previous policy of cutting the FDA and circumventing FDA rules 23. Ended previous practice of forbidding Medicare from negotiating with drug manufacturers for cheaper drugs; the federal government is now realizing hundreds of millions in savings 24. Ended previous practice of having White House aides rewrite scientific and environmental rules, regulations, and reports 25. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has created 2.1 million jobs (as of 12/31/09). 26. Ended previous policy of not regulating and labeling carbon dioxide emissions 27. Ended previous policy of offering tax benefits to corporations who outsource American jobs; the new policy is to promote in-sourcing to bring jobs back 28. Ended previous policy on torture; the US now has a no torture policy and is in compliance with the Geneva Convention standards 29. . Launched Recovery.gov to track spending from the Recovery Act, an unprecedented step to provide transparency and accountability through technology. 30. Ended previous practice of protecting credit card companies; in place of it are new consumer protections from credit card industry’s predatory practices 31. Ended previous “stop-loss” policy that kept soldiers in Iraq/Afghanistan longer than their enlistment date 32. Energy producing plants must begin preparing to produce 15% of their energy from renewable sources 33. Established a National Performance Officer charged with saving the federal government money and making federal operations more efficient 34. Established a new cyber security office 35. Expanded the SCHIP program to cover health care for 4 million more children 36. Expanding vaccination programs 37. Families of fallen soldiers have expenses 38. .

Immediate and efficient response to the floods in North Dakota and other natural disasters 43. .
