Experience: Obama Opened Can Of Something He Doesn’t Want To Eat

Early on after the Palin announcement, the Obama campaign went after her on her limited experience.  They seem to have backed off of the charge, but they left it hanging right over the plate like a bad change-up.

There’s questions like this on voters’ minds: Why does Obama have more experience than Palin? Well, put on your thinking caps.

Palin has led a city (albeit a small one) and a state (an ENORMOUS one with a small population – about the size of Biden’s Delaware, by the way).  Obama, meanwhile, has never run a city, never run a state, and never run a budget.

It’s frankly easier to do the same sort of thing on a larger scale than it is to start doing an entirely different sort of thing.  Obama has a short career as a legislator; Palin has a slightly longer one as a leader.  Palin was actually in elected politics 5 years before Obama.

Obama claims that his opposition to Iraq proves his judgment is better.  But if that is the test for good judgment, why did he pick Biden, who vigorously argued for the war?  And he showed terrible judgment in opposing the surge strategy.  And he didn’t really do so great with his “nuanced” statements about Russia’s invasion of Georgia, either.

Obama is out there now having to argue he has more experience than Palin, which really merely further underscores his lack of experience.

If anything, it’s kind of like standing in front of a mirror and shouting, “YOU’RE UGLY!”  I mean, dude, so are you.

Meanwhile, John McCain, who has a lifetime of valuable experience from both his military and government service, is the guy on the top of the Republican ticket.
