Would you let someone operate on you who is not a surgeon?

My husband made this point this morning. While watching a Ben Carson my husband said that Carson studied long and hard to become a surgeon. He went on to ask the simple question, “would you let someone operate on you who was not a surgeon?” The answer is no. You want someone with experience and they know what they are doing. So why would we elect a person to lead this country with no experience in politics? Share your thoughts.

    I find your question to be rich considering that you voted for a novice who had no experience at running, managing or leading anything, even a candy store to run the most complex enterprise on the planet. Dr. Carson has had experience at establishing and directing the Department of Pediatric Neurology at one of the most preeminent medical centers in the world. You might not have an awareness of the enormity of such an endeavor but it is no small feat.

      You don’t have to tell me about the great Dr. Carson. His medical talent is undisputed, but his political talent is not on that same level. My support of the president has no relevance to the post or Dr. Carson, and finally welcome back!

        I remind you of his experience, which you so readily dismiss, to expose your double standard. So your support of the president is relevant to the post on Dr. Carson. The president, at the time of his candidacy, had no experience in anything relevant, or irrelevant for that matter, unless you can extrapolate community organizing to somehow being relevant. I can hardly imagine your questioning his lack of qualifications or inexperience during his campaign. But that’s just speculation on my part.

    Running this nation requires an understanding of politics, not a career in it. It takes tact, discipline, foresight, diplomacy, a willingness to COMPROMISE on issues that aren’t critical to the overall outcome, and vision. Like Bill said, our current Chief Executive has no executive experience other than what he’s gotten OJT. He looks good in a suit, he has a beautiful family, he makes great speeches, and-oh yes-he’s black. He’s still not qualified to be president. Don’t believe me? Consider: besides race he has IDENTICAL credentials to Ted Cruz; would you vote for him? Probably not.

    Dr. Carson, if he gets the nomination and he surrounds himself with GOOD people, will do just fine as POTUS. I don’t have a favorite just yet, but he’s qualified.
