What does Experience really mean? Not much from what I’ve seen.

Let’s retire the word “Experience” so we won’t have to hear it again in 2009. That word has been used to death. It’s used by political figures to describe how qualified they are. At the end of the year, I heard the word used regarding Caroline Kennedy. Some people are saying that she doesn’t have the experience to replace Hillary Clinton. I don’t know if she does or if she doesn’t. What I do know is that a lot of people have experience and it hasn’t helped them.

Exhibit A: “The Big 3” – The heads of the three American car companies have plenty of “Experience”. That didn’t help them with building or selling cars. They didn’t pay attention to the smaller foreign cars and the higher Middle Eastern gas prices. These “Experienced” auto executives had to beg Congress to help save their companies. I can’t remember the last time I knew someone that owned an American car.

Exhibit B: “Hillary Clinton Campaign Team” – Yes the “Queen Bee “herself. She was surrounded with “Experienced” people to help run her campaign. They were beaten by an upstart candidate with a grass roots organization.

Exhibit C: President George Bush – AKA “Dubya”. He had “Experience” as the Governor of a large state. We all know how his Presidency is turning out. He went from landing on an aircraft carrier as a hero to ducking loafers. Oh how the mighty have fallen!!!

Exhibit D: Big Banks, Wall Street, Mortgage Companies, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Theses losers had an overabundance of “Experience” and they can’t even balance a check book. How do you not know how to fix the mess you made? I’ve watched my mother and my wife manage household finances. I believe we should get rid of these clowns and replace them with black women.

In 2008, we have seen that the word “Experience” doesn’t hold much weight. I think 2008 proved that experience isn’t everything. It actually proved that “inexperience” can be a benefit. So Good Riddance “Experience” because you just aren’t as qualified as you use to be.
