On experience...

I just read this and thought it was interesting. I really honestly question Palins readiness to be the President. The thing is, I also question Obamas rediness! The good news is, Palin is not running for President!

Obama is running a huge campaign -- Palin was just a small town mayor!

Believe it or not, this one was actually trotted out by Obama himself.

"My understanding is, is that Gov. Palin's town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We've got 2,500 in this campaign. I think the budget is maybe $12 million a year. We have a budget of about three times that just for the month."

Apparently, Barack missed that she's become the governor of Alaska in the interim. Why would he compare his current duties with her former duties?

Well, since he announced his candidacy, Barack Obama has raised about $22 million a month. That's a large organization for sure, unless you are directly comparing it to Sarah Palin, who is handling state revenues that are about 61 times as large, or more than $1.3 billion per month.

You can read the whole article HERE.

I actually hate the stupid ads both campaigns are putting out there! I wish they would start saying what they would like to do. I always try to teach my kids that they don't need to make the other person look bad just to make yourself look good. What I like about this quote is the small bit of information that Sarah Palin did manage a very large amount of money and people. It really does dwarf Obamas "experience".
