Possible new running item...I'll see how it goes.
So, I've noticed a lot of conservatives -- in blog posts, comments, and presumably on talk shows -- are still surprisingly focused on Obama's lack of experience as a major explanation of all the things they don't like about this administration. My question is: what exactly, and how, do you think would have been different with a more seasoned but equally liberal president?
This is not meant to be either a rhetorical or a sarcastic question; I'm also not talking here about "experience" as an issue to use against him in 2012 (which, as I've already said, is a foolish idea even if lack of experience has hurt him as president. No; it's a sincere question. I'm really interested in how people think his lack of experience has mattered to him in the White House. (Liberals are welcome to comment, too!). Not conservative (or for that matter liberal) screeds about how anyone with any practical experience would have junked all those socialist ideas and enlisted in the Church of Reagan, but real examples in which you suspect that a more or less equally liberal president would have acted differently, or had different outcomes, had he or she spent six years in a governor's mansion, or three terms in the Senate.
I guess I'll see what if anything comes in, and perhaps do a post in which I think about it a little.
