Democrats ought to kill the GOP "experience doesn't matter" crap

There is some minimal amount of experience in government someone must have to be president.

Even our last president with no elective experience, Dwight D. Eisenhower, had very comparable experience as supreme allied commander in Europe, wrangling our allies to work together.

A businessman, especially one who starts at or near the top by virtue of birth, does not know how to persuade people who aren't already on his side.

On an unrelated point, as we saw with Baby Bush and Cheney, when you make a businessman president, he won't run the government LIKE a business, he will run it AS an extension of his own business.

You can take that to the bank.

Bush and Cheney did, and Trump certainly will.

Props to Tom Tomorrow

Do any Dem PACs run ads in Red states about governors refused free medicaid $$$?

It seems like that would be a good short and long term investment and maybe put some Republicans who thought they were safe on the defensive.
