143 Days

I'm not sure if this is accurate, but is very interesting
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 of
being a surgeon.
You couldn't get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after 143
days of experience.
You couldn't join the military and become a colonel after a 143 days of
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 .... 143 days.
We all have to start somewhere. The senate is a good start, but after 143
days, that's all it is - a start.
AND, strangely, a large sector of the American public is okay with this and
campaigning for him. We wouldn't accept this in our own line of work, yet
some are okay with this for the President of the United States of America?
Come on folks, we are not voting for the next American Idol!

I found this on another forum, I don't know who wrote it but I lked it.

Obama's people are also adding in time served in the IL senate where he has a VERY consistent voting record.


Makes you wonder if he was just there to keep a seat warm and claim he was racking up experience while providing as little actual value as possible to the legislative process.

Problem is, the media is looking for perfection in a human. They want a perfect candidate with no imperfections to be our leader. So as a result, the masses are convinced that we need a perfect leader. Seriously, NOBODY is perfect. Everybody has some kind of issue from their past they'd rather forget. BUT, the press won't allow that, nosiree.

There are people that could make a huge difference, but because of their past, won't ever run.

With Obama, they are finding somebody they can hang their moral hat on and try to get him to the top office.

Personally, I'd rather have somebody who has had a rough time in life. Faced obstacles. Screwed up. Made bad decisions.. From all of that comes wisdom. Not intelligence, but WISDOM. With wisdom comes the ability to make better decisions.

Despite McCain's age, he has had a lot more experiences in his life to impart some degree of wisdom that Obama can only hope to have when he gets older. Obama is intelligent, I 100% admit. But intelligence only goes so far. I'm not convinced McCain is the right answer either. We *HAVE* to have better options out there than this. I don't think McCain is the smartest cookie, but he DOES have the wisdom of experience.

So which do you take? Wisdom/experience or intelligence and the ability to read a teleprompter?

If you combine intelligence with wisdom and experience, you'll find the bestl candidates for leading this country.
