    Nobody is experienced at being President until they are elected President.

    Really? Did he go to law school too?

    I'll take my chances with Roberts or Scalia.

    Yes, but there's a point at which you've gotta wonder why President should be the very first elective office a person gets.

    The guy's got less foreign policy experience than Sarah Palin. He can't even see Russia from his state.

    But each and every one of those people held elected office before becoming President. Carter, Reagan, and Bush had been Governor. Lincoln, Truman and Obama had all been in Congress. Granted, Lincoln was a one-term representative 20 years before becoming President, but he was in Congress.

    It wasn't. The last president who hadn't served in elected office before being elected president was Eisenhower.

    EDIT: Wait, I thought you were talking about Obama, not Carson. My b.

    George H.W. Bush's first elected office was Vice President. That, in and of itself, is quite rare.

    Yes, I have talked to you about this before and from what I remember you lacked any sort of argument.

    Only in the fact that they are all deviant behaviors and they would all like to be accepted... and that we are not going to allow that if we can stop it...that is not homophobia...that is ordered society affirming.

    Get your nuances correct guys and gals on that side.

    Medicine.

    no one is telling anyone how to live their lives. You're being hyperbolic again.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And so your point is that only previously elected people are qualified to hold office... seems like many of our previously elected presidents have been pretty poor at governing once in, our current high office holder a case in point.

    And Dr. Carson has time... so it is anyone's guess.
