1992 a sitting president who has 8 years of VP experience before that lost to someone who had zero national experience, did we feel sorry then?

Experience gets whooped by youth and a new message all the time. Like the others have said, give the kid a chance.

These races should not be political anyway. If experience is so valued, why are the positions elected?
All I can say is know your audience (and unfortunately what the nation has become and how hypocritical some are). I suspect if there was an "R" next to the name, some of the folks complaining about it would use an argument 180 degrees in the other direction.

And vice versa, if it was a Republican y’all would probably be saying this is bad.

Not Y'all. But the response is not surprising and a bit ironic (and pretty much proves the point I made). Too much rooting of political parties like they're baseball teams.

All I know is that Republicans 6 years ago voted for a person to be president that had zero political experience

I thought he passed an infrastructure bill on a weekly basis? Or that 3000 page medical legislation he passed?

Presidents don't pass legislation, they sign them into law. Trump never got the troops to rally for an infrastructure bill. 3 Pinocchios on that one.

Medical legislation???

All he did was heckle peoplefrom his platform. He left more clueless than when he came in

That giant book from 60 minutes - that healthcare plan (medical was the wrong terms to use, but then again, heathcare is also the wrong term to use)
