There's nothing wrong with that in and of itself. But a leader of the nation has to have experience leading, governing or serving enough time in Congress to know how to get things done with tact in reaching across the aisle.<quoted text>
You're looking for mysteries where there are none Carol. Barack Obama was one of many college grads who spent time looking for work after graduating. His stint at the Developing Communities Project, run under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago was an important stepping stone for him. Schools like Harvard Law often look beyond grades and often weigh actual experience into the mix.
Obama worked with actual people and tried to make their communities stronger and encouraged the younger residents to better themselves. There's nothing wrong with that.
Obama was in over his head from the get go. He led with the same academic disconnect in the same ivory tower he felt most comfortable most of his adult life.
He simply cannot relate to hardworking Americans who only want to make an honest living to get by or get ahead but, rather, connects with people who look to the government for their sustenance and has self-appointed himself as their leader, their voice and their savior while the rest of us have to pay the price and hope for the best.
There is no such thing as "fairness across the board" in any society. Europe and other failed socialist democracies should have made that obvious.
He is insulated and surrounds himself by fellow radicals and elitists who are also disconnected from most Americans who are not either.
In short, Obama is not a leader. He had an agenda and force fed it to the rest of us. He has demonized and ignored those who represent the other half of the population.
You can't possibly say and be honest that is a sign of leadership.
