Palin vs. Obama

Palin vs. Obama

Sarah Palin has been a sports reporter, worked in commercial fishing, and was the Commissioner/Ethics Supervisor for the Alaskan Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, a city council woman, a mayor, a Lieutenant Governor and is currently the Governor of Alaska.

Barack Obama was a community organizer, civil rights attorney, taught law and an Illinois state representative and is currently a US Senator.

Executive Experience

Sarah Palin has worked in an executive capacity as the Commissioner of the Alaskan Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, a mayor, a Lieutenant Governor and currently as the Governor of Alaska.

Barack Obama has NO executive experience.

Time in Government

Palin has been in government since 1996. Hardly a career politician, more than Obama but less than Joe Biden the Democrat nominee for Vice-President who has been a politician since 1970 having only had one other job as an attorney for two years. She has been Governor of Alaska two years in December.

Barack Obama starting in 1997 was an Illinois state senator. In 2004 he became a US Senator. He will have two years in office as a Senator in November.

You may be asking why I am not contrasting and comparing John McCain to Barack Obama. Simple, there is no comparison. Everyone is well aware of McCain’s qualifications for President. No, he does not have as much executive experience as we would like, but he does have more than Obama and Biden combined. Which is to say that Obama and Biden have ZERO executive experience.

Obama owes his entire success to his inspirational speeches and flawless delivery. But, now that we are into the “meat” of the campaign and we have some off tele-prompter moments to judge him by we see that his oratory abilities have been over stated. His lack of policy that he got away with in the primary is now hurting him as well as the general flawed nature of any liberal platform compared to a Conservative platform.

There is also no comparing Biden to Palin. Biden is a career politician who has not worked a “real job” in 30 years! 30 years in the Senate makes you no longer a man-of-the-people. It makes you the stereo-typical congressman who has lost touch with what it is like to live in the real world. You want change? Sarah Palin is real change with a real record of rooting out corruption and waste in government. Including her own party. Gov. Sarah Palin has looked at the Republican party and found it lacking. What is more, she has taken solid action to correct it.

Palin is a God-Send for the conservative movement, the Republican party and the United States of America. She offers more than any candidate in the past 40 years has offered… Democrat or Republican. You may want to justify your vote for Obama via the limp and sad vehicle that is “Change and Hope” but you will eventually have to own up to the substance of that vote. Obama is not the “Change” candidate. He is a well spoken candidate that offers far less than his history suggests he can provide. Vote the resume. Vote history. Vote an informed choice. Vote McCain-Palin.

Update: On Wednesday night I submitted the above article about Palin vs. McCain to the powers-that-be at the Progressive Journal, at 11:43 pm Wednesday night I see this “diddy” online from the head of the Democrat party in SC:

Carol Fowler (Dem party chairwoman) releases a statement of apology: "I personally admire and respect the difficult choices that women make everyday, and I apologize to anyone who finds my comment offensive. I clumsily was making a point about people in South Carolina who may vote based on a single issue. Whether it’s the environment, the economy, the war or a woman’s right to choose, there are people who will cast their vote based on a single issue. That was the only point I was attempting to make."

What Fowler is apologizing for is a statement that Palin’s “primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”

This is a defining statement for the Democrat party. It at once shows their panic and contempt towards a successful woman that is not Madonna or Oprah and their elitism towards the people of South Carolina who apparently are generally beyond making an informed decision and must cling to a single issue. Or in other words a continuation of Barack Obama’s telling moment that we folks that “cling” to guns and God are merely “bitter” intolerant bumpkins incapable of sophistication.

Should someone tell the liberals that we cling to guns to fulfill our duty and responsibility to provide our own individual protection from all assailants including and occasionally our own government, and that we cling to God for the day that the guns fail us..?
