Giggle: Now Obama Wants to Talk About Experience

Obama was a junior Senator from a state for about sixteen or seventeen months before he decided he was experienced enough to be president.

Sarah Palin has been the Chief Executive of a state for nearly two years... before running as Vice President.

But Obama wants to talk about how inexperienced she is.

McCain must be giggling that Obama wants to make this election, suddenly, all about experience. Yes, let's -- let's talk about the comparative experience of Obama and Palin every day for the next sixty seven days.

McCain shoots back on this point. A bit weak, actually, but they'll get better.

Hey Obama, Biden -- how many National Guard troops do you guys command?

How many state troopers?

How many budgets have you proposed?

How many plans have you worked out with Department of Homeland Security and FEMA?


Yeah, that's what I thought.

"Risky Disaster:" So says Obama booster Clyburn, apparently unaware that his boy made the case last night to "take a chance on risk."

Oh, and I repeat: The experienced, and yet not very experienced, Pain is running for the Number two slot.

The not very experienced at all Obama is running for the number one slot.

You morons really want to talk about experience?

Sarah Palin's answer: "I admit, someone with only two years of experience in a top elected position isn't ready for President. But I'm not running for President. Barack Obama is."

More: On experience:

I see that the Left and the MSM (but I repeat myself…) have already started the "no experience" drumbeat on Palin, which is going to backfire. Obama has been a Senator for four years and has no executive experience (unless he really wants to bring up the Bill Ayers connection again); Biden has likewise been a legislator pretty much all his life. Palin has served both on a local government level (something she can point to as a plus, given Obama's rhetoric last night about being a community activist) and for two years as governor of not only the largest state (geographically), but the only state that borders two foreign countries — one of which is Russia, fer cryin' out loud. Tell me how much either Obama or Biden have had to deal with Russia on a government-to-government basis.

In fairness, Illinois borders on Virginia.

CNN Questions Palin's Experience: It would be a fair question, except they've spent a year telling us the short-term junior Senator from Illinois, who wasn't even a leader in that body of 100, has all the experience we could ever want or need.

And, oh yeah: For the millionth time, Palin is running for Vice President, whereas the arriviste naif from Chicago is running for President.

BTW, Newsbusters is cutting the video of CNN questioning if Palin could be both Veep and mom as we speak.

Ultimate Flip-Flop: MyDD:

"Do we really need to put another wildly inexperienced, purely political choice into the White House?"

No, we don't. We could elect McCain.

Joshey Micah Marshall! She's inexperienced! And oh, by the way, McCain's going to die so it's important.
