Barack Obama Says that He is Qualified to be President because He is Running for President

http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/09/02/obama-i-have-more-executive-experience-than-palin/

It appears that Barack Obama thinks that he has more executive experience than Gov. Sarah Palin because he has run his campaign for President.

Am I the only one who sees a flaw with this?

Is this not a prime example of circular logic? “I am qulaified to be president because I am running for president. If I wasn’t running for president, then I would not be qualified for president.”

He then goes on to boast about his campaign’s 2,500 employees as compared to Wasilla, Alaska’s 50 employees. I think Democrats have a mental block in place that forces them to think that Gov. Sarah Palin is still just a small-town mayor and not a Governor.

Gov. Sarah Palin has been the executive leader of a State with a $10 Billion dollar budget and 24,000 employees.  This is also not to mention that she is the head of the Alaskan National Guard as Governor of the State.

Barack Obama needs a fact check and a Red Bull to wake up and realize that Gov. Sarah Palin is in fact a Governor of Alaska and not Mayor of Wasilla.

  1. Stop the hattred! What really makes the Republican party and people like you unimporatant is the fact that you do not read. Barack Obama is not in a race with Sarah Palin he is in the race with John McCain.

    You may not understand blacks, nor democrats for that matter, but you do have to accept them as citizens. Democrats and blacks in America have just as much right to leadership and success in America as you do. Here is the record just in case you didn’t read it before you read this.

    Obama is the first African American to be nominated by a major political party for president.[1] A graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he served as president of the Harvard Law Review, Obama worked as a community organizer and practiced as a civil rights attorney before serving in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. Following an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, he announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate in January 2003. After a primary victory in March 2004, Obama delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004. He was elected to the Senate in November 2004 with 70% of the vote.

    As a member of the Democratic minority in the 109th Congress, he helped create legislation to control conventional weapons and to promote greater public accountability in the use of federal funds. He also made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. During the 110th Congress, he helped create legislation regarding lobbying and electoral fraud, climate change, nuclear terrorism, and care for returned U.S. military personnel. After announcing his presidential campaign in February 2007, Obama emphasized withdrawing American troops from Iraq, energy independence, decreasing the influence of lobbyists, and promoting universal health care as top national priorities.

  2. Thanks for your comments, but I think you are wrong. It is the Democrats who constantly compare Obama and Gov. Sarah Palin. Well, they did this until most recently when they discovered that the more that they attack Gov. Palin, the more popular she became. Now they are finally shifting focus back to Sen. John McCain.

    And anyone can claim to help create legislation by taking credit for other people’s work. “Oh I voted for that so that means I helped create it.” Do you have any bill numbers or facts to back your claims?

    But you have to admit, when it comes to executive experience, his “community organizer” days and his time runnning his presidential compaign hardly compares to being a State Governor.
