Levin: Obama 'Never Even Worked at the 7-Eleven;' Need Constitutional Requirement

By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. | July 25, 2013 | 11:07am EDT

On his show last night, Mark Levin suggested there be an amendment to the Constitution that would require presidents to have a minimum amount of experience in business.

Criticizing the remarks made Wednesday by President Obama in Galesburg, Illinois on raising the minimum wage, Levin said:

"Rather than a command system where a person gets up flailing around telling everybody how much they should make, what you need, what you should get - when he's completely out of touch to begin with because the man's never even worked at the 7-Eleven."

Levin proposed a Constitutional amendment to require presidential candidates have, at a minimum, convenience store experience:

"Ok there we go; we need to raise the minimum wage.  You know there should at least be a requirement - maybe it ought to be in the Constitution - I didn't come up with this amendment - but maybe there should be an amendment to the Constitution that if you're going to run for president of the United States you should have at least handled the cash register at the 7-Eleven," Levin said.

"You should at least have that level of experience.  Minimal experience.  So you at least have some idea how the hell the world works."

Let the free-market work because it "works pretty damn well," Levin said.
