Obama says he has more executive experience than Palin because he’s managed his campaign for the last 18 months.
Speaking on a cable news channel Monday night, the Democratic presidential nominee said he is better prepared to handle a disaster like Hurricane Gustav because of his pursuit of the White House.
“Well, my understanding is that Governor Palin’s town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We’ve 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. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years,” Obama said.
Oh man, good job, you’ve managed 2500 people for like 18 months. Sarah Palin’s been Governor of Alaska for about as long you’ve been running your campaign, where’s she’s been responsible for 24,000 employees of Alaska, and a 10 billion dollar budget. So I wouldn’t go comparing your campaign to her being Mayor of Wasilla, because she’s been governor for about as long as you’ve been officially campaigning.
Honestly though, the McCain’s campaign’s retort is pretty much exactly what I was thinking:
“For Barack Obama to argue that he’s experienced enough to be president because he’s running for president is desperate circular logic and its laughable.”
I have to say though, I’ve been quite regularly tickled pink by the fact that Obama’s campaign has been reduced to comparing their Number 1 guy with our Number 2 position. Like I’ve said a lot in the past few days, you can really smell the fear coming off these guys.
