I have heard that Alaska Governor and VP nominee Sarah Palin is being hit with a charge that she has a lack of experience. As far as leadership is concerned, what we have in our Democrat candidates are speech-makers. Has Obama or Biden ever been elected as a mayor or governor of anyplace? The answer is no. Both Obama and Biden have stood on the floor of the Senate and made speeches. Palin was a mayor for six years and a governor for a year and a half. Add up the others’ executive experience and you’ve got a big fat zero.
Some criticism of Palin comes from a lack of foreign policy experience. My, how times have changed. Back in 1992 those charges were laid on Clinton by Republicans. Clinton and his cronies replied by saying that foreign policy experience didn’t matter, “it’s the economy, stupid.” Now in 2008 it’s important. Never mind that McCain will do fine in diplomacy and isn’t afraid to defend and protect this country. Lord knows how close our enemies will get to us before Jobama figures out their “diplomacy” isn’t going to work.
