Obama was president of the Harvard law review, a lawyer, a community organizer, a constitutional law professor, and a politician elected to both to state legislature, and federal legislature.
Seems he had a great deal of experience working with people, and an understanding of law. Obama was a hell of a lot more prepared to be president than a real estate developer who couldn't imagine drafting, and passing health insurance legislation would be so complicated.
Obama was never a constitutional law professor. If you want to want to be accurate get the titles straight. He was a senior lecturer. As for his lawmaking experience, the paint on his senate office walls wasn't even dry when he through his hat into the ring to run for president. However, leadership experience isn't a prerequisite to hold the office. Neither is previous political experience.
Amateur? President Obama was a first term senator that had no executive experience. He had never been mayor, never been governor, he had never been troop leader in the Boy Scouts. He hadn't signed the front of a paycheck. He hadn't led anything. We elected him president.
And he did a pretty good job. Left an economy in far better shape then when he took it over and his ranking is already around the 12th best president. That is unless you talk to dumbfuck racists who claim is is the worst ever which is simply impossible. Trump could never fill the shoes of Obama, he is an imbecile.
Look sweetie. A top executive of any large organization does not live by public pronouncements alone. Google "CEO job description" for plenty on the subject. Trump is not the guy you want trying to tap dance his way around world leaders. I agree with that. But in a lot of ways what Obama was good at (acting Presidential in public) was also his weakness. His reliance on people like Ben Rhodes and Susan Rice reinforces how weak he was on actual strategic thinking. He was quite reluctant to make big moves on the international stage. And I am NOT claiming Trump is good at it either. But the issue of how well his direct reports can manage him is still up in the air. The left is preoccupied with comparisons between Trump and Obama (or Clinton) on that one area of "Communications Proficiency." But it's not the whole job.
Those in the know rank Obama as the 12th best president ever. Do you think the dumbshit will ever be anywhere near that number. You can plaster partisan bullshit all you want but Obama is 10 times the leader your dumbfuck will ever be.
SHRM is the society for Human Resources management. I can show you dozens of analyses of management jobs, both public and private sector and being good on TV is NEVER the only requirement.
And I am not trying to dazzle anyone. If you want to pretend that being smooth is the primary requirement for the POTUS job, go ahead. What I said is obviously true, no dazzle required.
Barack Obama has been whisked to a very good table at the club of former presidents, according to a C-SPAN survey of 91 presidential historians published on Friday. Obama’s 12th-place ranking only a month after leaving office is the best for any president since Ronald Reagan, who ranks ninth in the new survey.
