Quote of the Day

What’s terrifying is the possibility that he hasn’t thought seriously about the problem: that’s the downside of electing a President without long experience in Washington, or any experience as a manager.

Mark Kleiman. It’s worth noting, of course, that a bunch of people expressed similar concerns back in 2008 regarding what the President’s leadership style might be, and got viciously attacked by people like Kleiman in reply.

UPDATE: For those visiting Kleiman’s site to comment, please refrain from name-calling and insults. Taunts are unnecessary as well. Arguing one’s points politely, but firmly, ought to suffice, and usually does.

    But the people voicing that concern in 2008 were the bad people. So it’s, you know, different.

    but then…anyone who criticizes the current occupant of the White House is labeled as a racist…so isn’t Kleiman a racist now?

    Here’s the comment I put on MK’s site:

      I don’t think that there is any point in taunting Kleiman, and I am not
      asking people to do so. But of course, it is amusing that two years after
      the Presidential elections, experience has suddenly become an issue. Better
      late than never, I guess, but it’s still quite late.

    The problem with Obama is not his lack of experience, rather, it’s the experiences that he HAS had.

      Both about equally, I think.

      And his experiences have not been good.
      Thank God.

      What a disaster.

      And it is good to see Kleiman backpeddling. Next he will be for tax cuts.

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha

    Experience is VERY important for 2012, since, you know, Obama will be the one with it and Palin will be the one without!

    • Pejman Yousefzadeh

      We are, of course, deeply relieved that at the end of one term, the
      President will be able to claim that he has executive experience. Such a
      dramatic change from 2008.
