Gov. Palin is a lot smarter than some give her credit for. She is the Governor of the largest state in the Union. She is commander in chief of the
national gaurd, a decision making execitive, and a party bucking maverick. Obama pales in comparison in intellect, and experience. Obama cannot even
function without a teleprompter. BTW Gov. Palin wiped the floor with the used car salesman.
You kidding me right? Since when did the size of a state constitute as executive experience? Can you just give these excuses a break???
Palin governs the largest state in the Union but at the same time she also governs the most isolated state, the most sparsley populated state, a state
that basically pays off part of the oil revenues to the populous so she doesnt have to do much to provide funding for anything, yet at the same time
she managed to give each Alaskan $500 worth of earmarks as a opposed to California where each person gets about $25.
-She has no executive experience, she is yet to finish her time as governor. Executive experience is not merely having power over a few thousand
people, if this was the case, 10% of america has executive experience.
-Her time as mayor of a small town is not executive experience AT ALL. If that was, you'd have to account for 100,000s of other americans. If it was
this easy to get executive experience, everybody would be running for mayor.
-How many people are there per mile in Alaska? Oh wait, its 2 per mile isnt it? Are you kidding me, this is probably the easiest state to govern.
-She is commander and chief of the national gaurd yet:
A) EVERY governor becomes commander and chief of the national guard, so this is listed under her time as GOVERNOR.
B) Nobody is able to name one significant decision shes made as her time as governor, especially regarding with the 4500 Alaskan guard.
C) The Alaskan home guard consist of a mere 4500 people, I mean honestly??? Some highschool principals look over more people than that.
D) Her power over the national guard is only limited to the state of Alaska itself, anything beyond the borders, be it international or nation wide,
is under direct control of the President of the United states.
Obama Pales in comparison to Palins intellect? I am insulted that you used intellect and Palin in the same post. Do you really want to go down that
path on academic achievements between these two? Because your going to loose big time... or are you guys just going to continue pulling BS out of no
where to make her legit?
McCains choice of Palin reflects his poor judgement and decision making as a politician. He chose the least experienced VP in US history after the
months of "experience" talk. In addition, this "country first" slogan should be taken down, because not only did he choose the least experienced
VP in history, he chose her purely to get the women vote. Shes one 72year olds heart beat away from those nuclear controls.
About this whining about Obama and a teleprompter, are you serious?? Is this the only excuse rightwingers can come up with to play down Obamas
speeches? EVERBODY uses teleprompers when making speeches including all the presidents and leaders in history, so you can give the "teleprompter"
excuse a break.
With his 95% voting record with Bush, and his history of flip flopping, McCain aint no "maverick", and his running mate isnt even qualified enough
to be governor in my opinion. How she got to there I will never understand...
Get your facts straight.
