Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Obama Administration Business Experience

Here's another important aspect of our present administration. Here's the percentage of all the president's cabinets since William Howard Taft, 1909-1913, to Barack Hussein Obama, 2009-2013(?) who have actually worked in the private sector...and had to meet payrolls and produce an actual profit, not in either academia, or government. The highest percentage and lowest percentage will be bolded.

Taft.....................40%
Wilson ................52%
Harding................49%
Coolidge.............. 48%
Hoover.................42%
Roosevelt............ 50%
Truman................ 50%
Eisenhower.......... 57%
Kennedy.............. 30%
Johnson............... 47%
Nixon...................53%
Ford.....................42%
Carter..................32%
Reagan................56%
GHW Bush.............. 51%
Clinton ............... 39%
GW Bush .................. 55%
Obama................ 8%

Here we have a President who has never worked outside of government or academia who has advisors who have never worked outside of government or academia telling our largest corporations how to run their businesses...They know what's best for these huge companies...and Wall Street, yet, 92% of his advisors have never, ever had to meet a payroll or produce and actual profit.

How can this President lecture us on jobs, business or profits, when he's never had to do so himself, much less his advisors. They have spent most if not all of their working lives in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs... or as "community organizers," when they should have been in employment line.

UPDATE:  Here's another version from the National Journal
