Debate, and discuss, just dont Bore me.

Or better, how to evade the issue of experience.  When Obama was asked a direct question on his experience, his answer was typically evaside:

 

Anderson Cooper: They in fact have said that Governor Palin has more executive experience, as mayor of a small town and as governor of a big state of Alaska.

What's your response?

Barak Obama: Well, you know, my understanding is, is that Governor Palin's town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We have got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year.
You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month.

Yea, running a "political" campaign, where your greatest decisions are what color are the bumper stickers and how many ads to run, is so much more taxing than actually being a leader ovre real people in their every day lives, even if it was only 50, right?

He just forgot to address the second part of the question.  And if his campaign is REALLY bigger than the budget of Alaska, doesn't that say something about his waste and excess?  But aparently he misses that point as well.

So to the (maybe) next president of this country, Madison avenue lies and deceptions are more important than the rest of your existance.  So help me Obama.

This isn't about lack of experience, this is about judgment...This was a very rash decision on McCain's side and this riskiness isn't something you want to see from a potential President. Not even 24 hours after he made a VERY presidential decision, its being questioned by his own party.

THIS is about experience.  I read your article.  And unless you have more information than is being disseminated by the campaign, you are wrong.  Sarah Palin's Daughter is not running for President.  Hugh Rodham did not run for president.  Billy Carter did not run for president.  So regardless of whether he knew about her daughter or not, the subject is really not germaine.

But you may have a point about being rash.  If you can back that up with facts, you have a point.  Until then, you do not as you have only hypothesis and opinion. And the facts, as known so far, disprove your assertions.

If you think picking the color of a bumper sticker is all that one would pick for a nation-wide political campaign, surely you have not played The Political Machine 2008!

lol

Are you kidding me?  Waste and excess is what we have endured for 8 grueling years!  Our deficit is the highest in history....how is the for a conservative?

Playing a game is not the same as running for president.  The sad fact of the matter is that Obama is not running his staff, he is campaigning.  he has a campaign manager to run the campaign while he stumps for the job.  If you do not know that, then you dont know politics.

Yes, that makes him a great carpenter (the parallels are getting spooky).

But still lacking in leadership.

And that is germaine to this point how?

We can discuss the waste and excess on another blog.  However, we are talking leadership here.  Executive style - and those that got it and those that wish they did.

1. There are only three people who have experience being president: the current one, his father and Jimmy Carter. Four if you add Dick Cheney. None of them is electable so the question of experience is always a red herring.

2. Thank you for your response on Amazon, and I've responded to you on joeuser.

Questions are part of it.  I thought you libs were claiming that she hasn't been questioned enough.  The fact is, Republicans like Palin even better than McCain.  This wasn't a rash decision.  It was a carefully crafted strategic move, a bit of a gamble, but a good move none the less.  A pick like Lieberman would have shunned his conservative base, and would have assured an Obama victory.  This is now going to be a close, and interesting election.

YOu forgot Billl and Gerald.  Ford is my favorite.  Always good for a laugh.

To the point many would like to see her at the top of the ticket.  Maybe in 4 years.

Hussein's comment about Palin show his ignorance about leadership.

Especially when glass or stairs were involved, but he was always a good sport about it
