My sincere condolences to those who wanted to use McCain's age as justification to vote for Obama, and likewise to those supporting McCain based on Obama's inexperience. I hereby invite you all to base your votes this November on how the candidates stand on the issues instead.
And my sincere thanks to both candidates for making that a bit more likely.
Update: The official Obama response: "Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency"
How does Palin's inexperience compare fairly to Obama's? She's on the /bottom/ half of the ticket, he's at the /top/ half of his.Posted by Chuckg at August 29, 2008 08:57 PM
She IS "just a heartbeat away from the presidency"! Anyone either one picks could be president!Posted by Lucifer at August 29, 2008 10:14 PM
Palin is still more experienced than Obama, and she has a proven record of accomplishment and fighting corruption, even within her own State party...Posted by Miss Ladybug at August 30, 2008 12:00 AM
Every border Alaska has is an international border. Palin has had to do more than just pontificate with foreigners ... she's had to actually work cooperatively with them, including he Russians ... and maintain an AK National Guard that would be the first responders to any border incursion, IMO.
Greyhawk, I have to respectfully disagree with you on the inexperience argument ... Palin's experience, as short a resume as it is, still leaves The Top of The Other Ticket in the dust.
And anyone with the testicular fortitude to stand up to the senior senator, from her state, AND her party, and cancel his pet project out of a sense of fiscal responsibility, is some "change" we can believe in.Posted by Rich Casebolt at August 30, 2008 03:09 AM
I do respect you very much, but who says that experience is off the table? At the very least Governor Palin has executive experience. I'm still trying to find out what a "community organizer" does??? And do you really need an organizer to build a community???
The experience issue didn't stop the Obama's campaign from attacking Governor Palin's, the only thing though it sheds light on the Obama's empty suit and it makes it look all the more bigger to logical independent voters.Posted by Pete Dawg at August 30, 2008 05:22 AM
I thought experience was off the table, but it appears the Democrats want it to be a great big centerpiece...Posted by Greyhawk at August 31, 2008 01:33 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(6) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
