Nice Try, But I Don't Think So

Obama has actually contended that he has more executive experience than Sarah Palin because of running his presidential campaign.

“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. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years,”

McCain's campaign called the statement laughable, and I agree. While Obama's campaign has accumulated a large financial war chest, and he has been able to recruit a large following of volunteers, that is a far different story from running a state or the federal government. Sorry Obama, spending money on one massive program (your candidacy) doesn't hold a candle to the responsibility of funding the myriads of programs that states run without having to raise taxes or run deficits. The fact that Obama makes this comparison, might be quite revealing of just how naive and inexperienced Obama is.

You can spend money, that doesn't mean you can manage the Federal budget responsibly.

I agree- managing a bunch of yes men that worship you versus managing people that hate you, love you, could care less, and each have their own agenda.

This is why it was a brilliant pick.

It keeps the experience point in the spotlight, without having to bring it up yourself. Obama fell for it and fell on his face.

All McCain has to do is let Obama play the inexperience card all on his own, and then remind everyone that Obama's own vp doesn't think he's experienced enough. Not to mention that neither do half the people that spoke at his convention.

A brilliant pick??! LOL please get real.
No matter how awkward Obama was in demonstrating his superior experience, as a matter of fact, he's much more experienced so he does not need to demonstrate it.
Smart voters figured it all out already.
Palin sucks. Period.
She does not stand up to the brilliant, experienced, overly educated European politicians.
Seeing Sarkozy or Merkel or Brown shaking her hand at a Summit would really make me laugh.
