Let’s get this out here right now. On experience: Sarah Palin runs the largest state in the nation and Barack Obama and Joe Biden combined run their mouths. That’s it in a nutshell.
Here we have a mother who is a governor. Throughout her career, Sarah Palin has broken up the good old boy networks. They hate her because she has opened the doors and turned on the lights in the smoke filled back rooms. So what does Barack Obama do? He releases this quote:
“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
He cannot bring himself to acknowledge that she is the sitting governor of the largest state. And like Joe Biden and John McCain, she has a son at war. She has skin in the game Barack Obama does not have.
Oh, and she’s a whole lot closer to Russia than Barack Obama ever has been.
Jill Hazelbaker has broken it down succinctly:
It is pretty audacious for the Obama campaign to say that Governor Palin is not qualified to be Vice President. She has a record of accomplishment that Senator Obama simply cannot match. Governor Palin has spent her time in office shaking up government in Alaska and actually achieving results — whether it’s taking on corruption, passing ethics reform or stopping wasteful spending and the ‘bridge to nowhere.’ Senator Obama has spent his time in office running for President.
Barack Obama is bitter. Look at this guy. He had the chance to prove he was serious about his rhetoric. But apparently it was all just words. He picked a guy who has been in Washington longer than John McCain. That’s not change we can believe in.
Sarah Palin is change we can believe in.
And again, Sarah Palin runs the largest state. Barack Obama runs his mouth.
