Tell All Media: Obama has as much experience as Ronald Reagan and Teddy Roosevelt!

The untrue argument, stated as fact by media everywhere, that Obama is too inexperienced must finally be put to rest. This article shows five presidents elected with less than Obama's 12 years of public service (among them Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Teddy Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, and Woodrow Wilson) and one more with 12 years just like him, in the past century. Electing Obama is voting for more experience than our current President Bush had when he took office - a grand total of six years public service! If people like how "novice" Teddy Roosevelt handled our nation in a time of world war, they should look at the ever-calm, intelligent, world-travelled and diplomatic Senator Obama.
