Barack Obama Proclaims he has More Experience than Republican VP Candidate Sarah Palin


Did Obama have a senior moment? Has he forgotten who is is running against? It Obama_child_on_bikealso seems that he has more memory loss in the fact that Palin is a Governor, not a Mayor. How incredibly sexist that Obama would try to dismiss Palin as the little woman.

Can Obama get any more juvenile? What’s next … Obama going to say his daddy can beat her daddy up? As Town Hall  adds Obama new slpogan is … “My Campaign Is Bigger Than Her Small Town.” Could Obama and his campaign get any more childish?

Today Obama defended his nearly non-existent executive experience by stating that he was more experienced that Republican VP candidate and Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin. That might actually mean something if Obama were actually running against Palin. Maybe someone in the Obama camp may want to tell Barack that he is running for President against John McCain, not Palin. I really must say the Obama campaign talking points have really been lame lately.

Barack Obama defended his experience in dealing with natural disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina, and took a swipe at newly minted GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

In an interview on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night, Obama was asked about whether his experience in the U.S. Senate dealing with weather-related situations compares to Palin’s executive experience running the state of Alaska and as the small town mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

“My understanding is that Gov. Palin’s town, Wassilla, has I think 50 employees. We’ve got 2500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe 12 million dollars a year – we have a budget of about three times that just for the month,” Obama responded.


Who knew Obama was running for Vice President?

Hey Obama, as The Corner states, did you forget the fact that Sarah Palin is the Governor of Alaska, not the Mayor of Wasilla? I would dare say that the State of Alaska has more than 50 employees and a larger budget than your campaign. By the way, it is not Obama that is managing the 2500 employees or the campaign budget, his people would be doing that. Thus in the end, Obama manages nothing.

Just for the record, Alaska’s FY2008 operating budget is $11.2 billion, and the state employs approximately 15,000 people.  Those certainly aren’t huge numbers in federal terms, but they’re a good bit bigger than the Obama campaign.

      Obama os really proving to be a clown.

      He and his campaign mistreated Hillary and now its Sarah’s turn. Seems to be a pattern. OK, women of the United Stated … you are getting a pretty good view as to how you will be treated if Obama wins.

      “How incredibly sexist that Obama would try to dismiss Palin as the little woman.”
      And futher with post #1.

      Looks like Scaredmonkeys is lock step with the Republican talking points memo.

      Don’t challenge McCain – he’s a POW. Don’t challenge Palin – she’s a girl.

      I guess if we follow #1′s logic, anytime Obama is critcized it’s racist. Perfect.

      My suggestion – #1 pick up a dictionary and look up the term “sexism”.

      Watching the republicans implode is hilarious.

      Even Sarah Palin want’s you to quit your whinning #1.

      NEWSWEEK: Sarah Palin, you are a Republican and a conservative one at that. It’s unlikely that you and Hillary would agree on too many issues. But, yet, as a woman, chief executive” someone who’s been through the grinder” when you look at the coverage and you listen to the conversations, what do you see?
      Sarah Palin: Fair or unfair and I do think that it’s a more concentrated criticism that Hillary gets on so many fronts; I think that’s unfortunate. But fair or unfair, I think she does herself a disservice to even mention it, really. You have to plow through that and know what you’re getting into. I say this with all due respect to Hillary Clinton and to her experience and to her passion for changing the status quo. But when I hear a statement like that coming from a women candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism or a sharper microscope put on her, I think, man, that doesn’t do us any good. Women in politics, women in general wanting to progress this country, I don’t think it bodes well for her, a statement like that. Because, again, fair or not fair it is there. I think it’s reality and it’s a given, people just accept that she’s going to be under a sharper microscope. So be it. So it bothers me a little bit to hear her bring that attention to herself on that level.

      Thank G-d for Scared Monkeys. yoyo m says that SM is “lock step with the Republican talking points memo”. I don’t know about that, but it iS refreshing to get a positive viewpoint of the Republican candidates from somewhere in the media.

      I think it is fair to say that B. Hussein Obama isn’t too worried about this blog, considering the fact that ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Los Angeles Times and on and on, are “lock step with the Democrat talking points memos”.

      Still, yoyo muffintop, unlike some lib blogs, Scared Monkeys allowed your full comment, so you got in your two cents.

    4. Scared Monkeys on September 2nd, 2008 9:29 pm

      Yoyo … you are a fool. You actually know less than nothing. You should be proud of your complete ineptness.

      Anyone who knows me and knows what I have wrote over the years knows that I have never been a McCain fan. However, as compared to the A$$ Clown Obama and the snake oil he peddles there is only one choice.

      If you do not respect McCain for being a POW and for more than that … his character that that is just a glance into your heart, nothing more.

      Barack Obama is a liar and a fool. He has done nothing in his life and is such a jackass he is comparing his lack of experience to that of an opposing VP candidate. What’s the matter … Obama not man enough to stand up to McCain, McCain’s experience and his character?

      People need to know only one comparison to choose between the two candidates. McCain spends 5 1/2 years being tortured and beaten in Vietnam as a POW and when he had a chance to safe his own bacon … McCain said no as he put himself before his country and his fellow soldiers.

      Obama after spending 20 years in a racist church, listening and agreeing with a racist message. Then when Obama runs for President and the very racism comes to light that affects his political aspirations from his church and his pastor what does Obama do? Obama couldn’t run fast enough and separate himself from the very church and pastor that backed him in his political career.

      If Obama was in McCain’s shoes in Vietnam does anyone not think that Obama would have taken the easy way out and did what ever behooved himself.

    5. Scared Monkeys on September 2nd, 2008 9:32 pm

      No one is saying one cannot attack Palin because she is a woman … I am saying that to talk down to a woman and dismiss her, lying in the process is a form of misogyny.

    6. Scared Monkeys on September 2nd, 2008 9:33 pm


      Thanks and you are correct. If we were what Yoyo idiot claims, we would have deleted his comment and it would never have seen the light of day.

    7. Jack on September 2nd, 2008 9:54 pm

      Whazza matter you guys?? Obama has tons more executive experience than Palin, making high level decisions. For instance, sitting on the Wood Foundation Board, and being Administer of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, both sitting next to Bill Ayres and struggling to make the right choice as to which corrupt organization to give millions of dollars to!!! The crap on the CAC will be out soon and it should be Adios Mutha…

    8. rightknight on September 2nd, 2008 10:10 pm

      Since Barack’s experience profile consists mainly of “Community Organizer” fame and none of his projects have been successful, what can he reference in terms of track record? Michelle Obama is the one with a successful track record. She should be the candidate.

    9. caesu on September 2nd, 2008 10:11 pm

      i know SM doesn’t want obama.
      thinks obama is unexperienced among other things.
      well fine, i am not trying to convince otherwise.

      so therefore, it is mccain SM want to win.

      seriously, how about his VP pick.
      after all he is 72, she might become president sooner or later.

      have you tried to look into her?
      there are many smears going around.
      but even looking at her as objectively as possible – which is very difficult because the media old and new are going crazy.

      how can she be someone who can lead the free world against terrorism, russia, iran, n-korea???

      she has NO foreign experience or national security experience.
      being commander in chief of the alaskan national guard for just 20 months. is that enough??

      was mccain forced to pick her because he felt intimidated by the ‘obamania’, and being behind in the polls, so he made a reckless choice to get the conservative vote or female vote?

      that might get him to win the election (i doubt this because it seems to be falling apart already).

      but when he wins. is it realy ‘country first’ to have her ‘one heartbeat’ from the presidency.

      i did look around i found this:
      this is from 2007.
      that’s a bit encouraging.
      but she has made other statements that seem very troubling – as for being experienced enough.

      now there are dozens of scandals popping up.
      no need to name them. but some of them seem really troubling.
      of course most of them are smears, but only if one would turn out credible the GOP is stuck with a unreliable nominee.

      tomorrow she gives her speech.
      i am sure she will rally the conservatives because of her pro-choice stances for example.

      i mean a VP is there not only for the campaign to win the election but actually to be there next in line.

      It takes a REAL man to admit when he’s wrong.

      Politicians, rarely do.


      Yo Yo, are you a man or a woman?

      As if the Republicans use their

      ‘picking, slicing and pruning’

      for women only…



    11. Patti on September 2nd, 2008 10:37 pm

      Still laughing…

      But, I did mean to say men only.


      We should just get it over with:

      Declare a war between the

      Democrats and Republicans

      and forget the election…


      That way, women don’t have to be responsible for anything. We can just kick back, make a few babies and leave all the fighting to them.

      Maybe, then, after they’ve killed eachother…

      WE can, finally, have peace.


      THAT’s how rediculous this choice was!

      As I’ve pointed out before, I hope Obama keeps walking down the road of “experience”…he is not finishing that walk.

      I think the race is going to be closer than most are predicting, but even those I know who just “want a change” and want the REP’s out of office after 8 years…ALL of them- I mean ALL of them stop before saying they will cast their vote for Obama because they “are not sure if he has enough experience.” This continally comes up time and time again and will not go away.

      So, keep going there ! It is the one thing that is going to continue bite Obama in the butt!

    13. dennisintn on September 3rd, 2008 9:23 am

      obama steps in dog dodo again. he compares his experience of running(doubtful of that even) with palin’s running of alaska that has a budget of ll Billion, yes, billion, dollars a year and has 7500 employees. obama doesn’t even know anything about the people running against him in the election, much less about the very formidable forces that want to kill us all. his economic policies are the same old tired and failed policies of the past. the far left extremists that are running and funding his campaign are as scary and unethical as he is. i don’t believe for a minute that obama doesn’t approve of the personal attacks on sarah palin and her family. he lets the left wing media and blogs do the dirty work and then he plays mr. righteous gentleman and “taps their fingers” for doing it.

    14. dennisintn on September 3rd, 2008 9:27 am

      mccain’s mother was on the convention floor last night. she’s sharper and stronger at 93 than biden is, and she’s also sharper than obama. i have no problem believing that mccain is strong as an ox constitutionally and medically.

    15. Mss-Underestimated on September 3rd, 2008 10:19 am

      4 years of total democratic congress, can anyone tell me what bills/laws were passed?

    16. Mss-Underestimated on September 3rd, 2008 10:26 am

      Posted too fast. So, what change is Obama going to make happen?

    17. dennisintn on September 3rd, 2008 12:20 pm

      let’s talk about that “one heartbeat away”. palin was elected may of her “small town” and hit the deck on both feet and did a fine job. she did such a fine job at that she ended up being elected governor and hit the deck on both feet and did a fine job. obama hasn’t even had a deck to look for yet.

      as late as l:00 pm today, the obama and the dems are still referring to palin as “mayor of a small town”. evidently they have been asleep for the last 2 years, or they’re just continuing their mistaken idea that we’re all stupid.

      i just saw a speech by obama where he was supposed to be talking about his economic plans. all i heard was him carping about not hearing anything about the repubs. economic plans. i guess he’s waiting to see what the repubs. reveal so he’ll know what to try to copy and call his own. the closest thing i’ve heard him say about economics is the same tired old unsuccessful crap the dems always throw out as “new”.

      obama is still the same lying empty suit he’s been since he started campaigning 2 years ago.

    18. dennisintn on September 3rd, 2008 12:24 pm

      i got cut off, so here’s the finish.

      i heard obama this morning talking about his economic plan. all it amounts to is him carping about not hearing the repubs. plans and then the same tired old unsuccessful promises and platitudes the dems have been using for 20 years or more.
      obama is still just a lying empty suit.

    19. BUN on September 3rd, 2008 3:23 pm

      Yo Yo…friend to friend…on Oprah there was some kind of under garment that hides the muffintop…did you see it? I forgot the name. Once you have your muffintop under wraps, then you will be seen as simply a slim mean-spirited nutjob…

    20. Sam on September 7th, 2008 5:55 pm

      frankly, i hear a lot of peoople in here that don’t like blacks….pure and simple.
