Some people just don’t get it.

Interesting article here about the Bush campaign and the rivalry with Marco Rubio.

Some people just don’t get it.

While I am not a fan of the politics of Obama, I do understand his appeal.  In 2008, he was young, fresh and free from the grind of Washington D.C.  He wasn’t “one of them”.  He was an outsider.  Someone with admittedly limited experience.

What people don’t understand is that is a plus.

Politics may have turned in 2008.  “Experience” doesn’t matter as much.  Experience is just a code word for establishment and establishment is out.

New faces are in.  There’s a reason the GOP polls include names like Trump, Carson, Rubio, Cruz and Fiorina.  These are people we largely hadn’t heard of 8 years ago (at least not in politics).  Names like Santorum, Bush, and Kasich are less appealing because they’ve been in politics for too long.

Some people just don’t get it.
