Quote of the Day – Campaign Experience Edition

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. It is a testament to Barack Obama’s inexperience and failing qualifications that he would stoop to passing off his candidacy as comparable to Governor Sarah Palin’s executive experience managing a budget of over $10 billion and more than 24,000 employees – McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds.

Obama was making the truly laughable argument the he has more executive experience because “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.” He seems to forget that she was running the town for 10 years, followed by two years as governor, compared to a year and a half or two years running a campaign. And what other job would you claim that applying and interviewing for the job made you qualified for it?
