The contrast

By contrast, to the actual reform accomplishments made at great risk by Sarah Palin referenced in the post below, here is what Mr. Obama (in his own words) says about his own accomplishments and experience.

transcript courtesy of Hot Air:

AC: Some Republican critics say, you don’t have the experience to handle a situation like this [Hurricane Gustav]. They’ve in fact said that Governor Palin has more executive experience as mayor of a small town and as governor of a big state like Alaska. What’s your response?

BO: Well, you know, my understanding is that, uh, Governor Palin’s town of Wasilly [sic] has, uh, 50 employees, uh, uh, we’ve got 2500, uh, in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. Uh, uh, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. Uh, so I think that, uh, our ability to manage large systems, uh, and to, uh, execute, uh, I think has been made clear over the last couple of years. Uh, and certainly, in terms of, uh, the legislation that I’ve passed just dealing with this issue post-Katrina, uh, of how we handle emergency management. The fact that, uh, many of my recommendations were adopted and are being put in place, uh, as we speak indicates to extent to which we can provide the kinds of support and good service that the American people expect.

Notice that Mr. Obama misses the whole Governor of the State of Alaska thing? Notice how all he has to reference is the act of running for president itself as executive experience? how has that worked out? in a huge year of built-in advantages for Dems, he is even in the polls after spending more money than any candidate in history. Makes me wonder if this is the experience he ought to be touting.

Additional response of Mr. Obama yesterday.

“We’re not going to be bullied, we’re not going to be smeared, we’re not going to be lied about,” Obama said. “I don’t believe in coming in second.”

Sounds kind of desperate doesn’t he? is he being bullied by a 44 year old former mayor of “wasilly”?
