Obama Thinks Running A Campaign Is Executive Experience


Obama really believes that.

And that's not all.

Raise your hand if you knew that Obama also counts being a 7-months-in-office junior senator from Illinois as bona fide natural disaster experience (dealing with Hurricane Katrina)? Here's what Obama told Anderson Cooper:

“My understanding is that Gov. Palin’s town, Wassilla, has I think 50 employees. We've got 2500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe 12 million dollars a year – we have a budget of about three times that just for the month,” Obama responded.

Did you notice how Obama completely ignored the fact that Palin is the current GOVERNOR OF ALASKA?

Here's what Obama said about his natural disaster experience:

Our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the past couple of years and certainly in terms of the legislation I’ve passed in the past couple of years, post-Katrina.”

I have to hand it to Obama: That takes some nerve.

Obama's entire senate legislation involvement to date:


voted in favor of the Energy Policy Act of 2005

cosponsored the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act

supported the Secure Fence Act

introduced "Lugar–Obama," which expanded the Nunn–Lugar cooperative threat reduction concept to conventional weapons

introduced the "Coburn–Obama Transparency Act," which authorized the establishment of www.USAspending.gov, a web search engine

primary sponsor of the Democratic Republic of the Congo Relief, Security, and Democracy Promotion Act

co-sponsored the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act

introduced S. 453, a bill to criminalize deceptive practices in federal elections

introduced the Iraq War De-Escalation Act of 2007


sponsored the Iran Sanctions Enabling Act

sponsored a Senate amendment to the State Children's Health Insurance Program

Besides, Obama waited 2 years to propose a plan concerning Hurricane Katrina (and it was just a part of his presidential campaign, as well --not proposed US senate legislation):

Mr. Obama, according to details provided by his campaign, said he would appoint a chief coordinating officer to “cut through bureaucratic obstacles” and a chief financial officer “to minimize waste and abuse.”

Oh, yeah. There's also this:

Before Hurricane Katrina struck on Aug. 29, 2005, Mr. Obama had never been to New Orleans. After the storm, he visited evacuees in Houston (alongside Mrs. Clinton and former President Bill Clinton).

If this is the best disaster/ executive experience argument for Senator Obama and against Governor Palin...

Well, the word pathetic comes to mind.

Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:

Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.

Here's Donna now...
