Yes, he has

My latest post for WNYC’s A Free Country is on people urging Chris Christie to run: he’s great but hasn’t Obama taught us experience counts?

Whom do you have in mind when you mentioned politicians with leadership experience?

I don’t know. I don’t have a candidate I favor yet, kind of looking to see how the race takes shape. Anyone you like right now?

So far – no.
But I don’t think Christie is comparable to Obama, in terms of inexperience. 1st, he is a real court lawyer (vs. the “paper” one, like Obama). He can plan like an executive, strategize and he demonstrated results. He can explain his actions in clear simple terms, gaining support. He can offer argumentation, not only proclaim. He can budget. In short, he’s an adult.

Naturally, I’d prefer someone who had time to be better known to the rest of the country, but if push comes to shove in 2012 and we have, say, Romney vs. Christie, I’d prefer the latter.

That’s theoretical, anyway – I can’t vote in Republican primaries.

Experience be damned. Christie is a muslim sympathizer in the same mold as Obumma.He appointed a muslim to a judgeship.Sharia anyone?

Wl, thanks for pointing that out. To say that I’m shocked is to put it mildly.

Palin/Ryan. Now that’s a good looking ticket.
