SARAH PALIN'S EXPERIENCE ABOVE AND BEYOND BARACK OBAMA - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY

Friday the political world was shocked by the surprise choice of Republican Presidential nominee John McCain in naming Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to the number two spot on the 2008 GOP ticket. The Democrat attack machine immediately began hitting Palin on the issue of experience and as the weekend progressed the left has actually been reaching in their attacks which shows that the choice of Palin was not only unexpected but a choice that sparks fear in Democrat circles.

Attacks ranging from the ,"inexperienced on foreign relations," attacks that began on Friday to trying to portray her as, " not as conservative," as she says because her husband and oldest son are registered Independents. An attack that appeared late on Saturday even moves into the ridiculous questioning the mother of five on her family values because when she went into labor in April for the birth of her son she was at a conference in Texas.

Her water broke and she still gave her scheduled speech then boarded a plane to head home to Alaska. Because she did not go to a Texas hospital and did not ask her doctors permission to fly home, the left are claiming that she has low family values and was not concerned about the life of ,"an unborn child !" This coming from the hypocrites that believe aborting the unborn in no big deal. The Dems are reaching and show their fear with Palin on the ticket.

While ridiculous attacks like the previously mentioned are dangling in the media, I find it not only surprising but extremely hypocritical that Democrats are actually stepping into the experience debate concerning Governor Palin the GOP number two. Especially with the absolute inexperience of the number one on the Democrat ticket.

This is a debate that I am not sure the Democrats want to get into during the course of this election. Many pundits are using the experience argument as a condemnation of McCain's choice by stating that Palin's perceived lack of foreign policy experience will only be a ," heartbeat ," from the Presidency.

My first response to this accusation by the left who really are taking a political risk by forcing this debate, is that if Barack Obama is elected President, (which I believe will NOT happen), the heartbeat WILL be the President. Obama's foreign policy experience consists of a visit to Pakistan when he was in college and two travels to the Middle East since being elected to the Senate. One of which was his recent rock tour to the Middle East and Europe.

If Obama's trips overseas are considered qualifying foreign policy experience then Palin has nearly the same as she has taken a trip to Iraq to visit the troops. But additionally Palin as Governor of Alaska has had to deal with foreign entities on a regular basis as Alaska is a major hub for importing and exporting and oil is the major industry of the State which involves dealing with many foreign entities both from a foreign business and foreign governmental stand point.

But setting all of that aside for the Democrats to attack Palin as inexperienced leaves the debate wide open for spotlighting the inexperience of Barack Obama. Of course the Dems are trying to portray that McCain has taken that issue off the table because of choosing Palin. But I counter that with this. The Democrats by using inexperience as an attack have actually taken that debate to a higher level and made in more available for attack against Obama.

Prior to the Palin choice the Obama campaign especially after selecting Joe Biden for the ticket had avoided the experience debate like the plaque. Then when Biden was selected even Bill Clinton in his Convention speech stated that because Joe Biden's ,"experience and wisdom, " was on the Democrat ticket that, " America will have the National Security leadership that we need."

The addition of Biden and his years on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, according to the Democrats, took the experience issue off the table. Of course we all know that adding Biden did little to change the experience issue because as President it would be Obama's responsibility to make decisions and not Biden's.

The inexperience issue is at the top of the ticket with the Democrats and the perceived inexperience issue is with the number two for the GOP. I state , "perceived, " inexperience for the GOP ticket because Sarah Palin is the only candidate in the race with elected Executive experience and as has been said many times in the last few days, while Obama has been campaigning for the Presidency from nearly day one in the US Senate, Palin has been in the Alaska State Capitol dealing very successfully with the executive responsibilities of being the Governor of a State.

Palin's selection for Vice President by John McCain has NOT taken the issue of experience off the table as many on the left are trying to claim but actually because the Democrats have chosen to highlight the issue, the inexperience of Barack Obama is now much more in the forefront than it was last week as the Obama campaign and their Democrat surrogates including the left wing media have highlighted experience in their charges against Sarah Palin.

The experience debate therefore has intensified and the loser in that debate is Barack Obama whose experience consists of a speech in 2004 at the Democrat Convention which placed him in the national spotlight and three years as a US Senator running for the Presidency.

Contrast that with Sarah Palin , the GOP Vice Presidential nominee who while Obama has been running for President has been running a City and then a State. Reforming a corrupt State Government, reducing taxes, dealing with foreign entities that have daily business with her State, using her VETO pen to reduce State spending, building an oil pipe line to help meet the energy needs of Alaska and the United States sending a son to the Army and shortly to Iraq and still having a baby and raising a family.

So to the Dems I challenge this, if you want a debate about experience bring it one because no matter how one sizes it up John McCain's experience in the military making Executive decisions as a commander , his long history of public service which has taken him to every corner of the world dealing with foreign leaders on pressing issues and domestic issues here at home combined with the hands on Executive experience of Sarah Palin make McCain/Palin the REAL experience that we need to lead this Nation for the next four years.

Ken, your whole experience discussion is backward. For the better part of the last couple of months, McCain has been arguing that Obama did not have the experience to become CIC. Then, his pick throws that whole line of argument out. He undercut his whole argument with the choice of Palin.

People can decide for themselves whether delivering a 30 minute speech and then flying on a commercial flight from Dallas to Alaska AFTER having her water break was a wise choice. I've already given my opinion, but it is medical malpractice not to direct such a woman to go to a hospital or to their doctor.

There is no questin Palin can charge up the Republican base, but it is not like they were going to vote for Obama anyway. I find it unlikely that she will get many serious Hillary voters to cross over. She has mocked Hillary in the past and her views are at complete odds with Hillary's positions.

I am thrilled about this pick.

Sarah Palin will bring all those conservatives that were worried about voting for McCain back home again :-)

Obama has been all about "Change". He then went on the put a long-standing, old-time political player on his ticket.

If anyone is about "Changing" the political path, it McCain- especially with putting Sarah on his ticket. I am really excited about the breath of fresh air she will bring to the Republican campaigne

And to Rob- no one can know a woman's body better than the woman herself. She already delivered 4 children. Im sure she was quite aware of what was going on. And with the concerns of this last child, she probably didn't want any one but her Doctor to deliver- and to be in the care of her home town hospital.

And to those pro-choicers out there, they dont have a leg to stand on with this arguement.
"its ok to kill a baby, just dont cut the delivery so close"

What???

Thats as moronic as filing law suits for child neglect on a mother who drinks during pregnancy.
Again, its ok to kill the baby, just dont abuse it.

Hi Ken!

Well, you were wrong. I didn't post on Palin because I really needed a break and I knew that you and others would do a great job. I was right. :)

Palin is a perfect choice and the Dems are only looking stupid and mean trying to say she's disqualified when she has more actual experience than either Obama or Biden. I don't care how long Biden has been a Senator, she has far more executive experience.

Let the Dems make fools out of themselves. They would do it with or without Palin. :)

In light of the recent disclosure of her 17 year-old daughter's pregnancy and impending marriage, I think revisiting the actual definition of "Family values" is in order for social conservatives. As a woman who fully respects and knows first hand the demands on a mother in early childhood (and early motherhood), how can you be focused on helping to run a country with an infant and a 17 year-old in potential crisis? I just don't get the religious right. I believe more in Benjamin Franklin's adage that at the end, we will be judged by our actions, not by our commitment to dogma. The best politicians in our proud history have been open to all religions. Not exclusive, but inclusive. Not judging but contemplative. Religious views have NOTHING to do with morals and values. no matter how religious a person claims to be, they are still human and their choices are a refection of their character.

From a pragmatic standpoint, she is a bad choice and would never get this woman's vote.

(I trust this opinion will not be posted as it is not in-line with your audience' beliefs. but I hope you prove me wrong:)

Wow, she really must have wanted to get her point across! LOL

I found it quite ironic too that they are criticizing Palin for lack of experience when Obama has none! Very hypocritical, but why am I suprised??

I love Rebekah's comment, regarding the birth of her baby. Again, totally hypocritical! I just don't understand why more people cannot see that??

Sons and daughters of even the most Family-oriented parents sometimes find themselves expecting children. It is unfortunate, but it is a fact.

At least Sarah Palin has committed herself and her family to take responsibility for the "mistake" her daughter made, instead of killing the baby in the womb because her daughter is being "punished with a baby".

I think Sarah Palin should be commended rather than condemned for supporting her daughter in these trying times.

"Taking responsibility? Did they have a choice?"

Yes, they could have avoided responsibility by killing the baby in the womb, as Obama implies he would do under the same set of circumstances.

Mark, your resonse is a bunch of B.S. Please explain to me how/when Obama implied he would tell his daughter to have an abortion if he found her in the same condition.

Rob,
I don't know how many voters will cross over, but what will happen is that some of the Republicans who do not especially like McCain and were deciding to either stay home or vote on a third party ticket, will now show up to the polls and vote for McCain because of Sarah Palin. I'm a good example of that. I was on the fence, but have decided now to go with McCain and there are others like me.

There are some more comments under the next post down that come against your water breaking argument aside from what is written here.

Gayle,
The fact that you didn't post on the issue is the main reason why I'm here and actually it is good for me to be pushed out of my comfort zone once in awhile and encouraged to explore more of the web.

Palin intensifies the "fools out of themselves" phenomena coming from the Democrats and I'm so glad.

Michelle,
The decision to kill babies as the Democrats love to do is not a moral choice. This is a reflection of bad character.

Mark,
AMEN! And well said.

Anonymous,
Yes, they did have a choice. They could have aborted the baby and they didn't. That's worth saying twice and yes killing a baby avoids responsibility. It is funny that you even have to ask such a thing.

I like Medved's reasoning:

Yes, this undermines McCain’s future use of the experience issue, but that’s almost certainly a good thing, too. The experience issue has never worked well in presidential elections: Gerald Ford tried it against a one-term Governor of Georgia (the worthless Jimmy Carter) and lost; Carter tried it against Reagan (no foreign policy experience as Governor of California!) and got wiped out; George H.W. Bush tried to make it stick against Bill Clinton and the result was the lowest percentage of the vote for a Republican candidate since Wiliam Howard Taft. The line McCain’s been using “He’s Not Ready to Lead” is still viable – and should emphasize a discussion of Obama’s policies, not his job history—his radicalism, not his resume. Meanwhile, we should invite comparisons of Governor Palin’s experience with Obama’s: won’t the PTA connect more with middle class voters than “community organizer,” and property tax-cutting small town mayor count more than slippery State Senator who voted “present” a disquieting proportion of the time. In any event, both tickets now balance experience with youthful energy – but McCain is balancing it the right way, with the experience at the top.

hi my name is brenda and i am 15. im in 10th grade and take all AP classes. i am also african american. you may think that i am too young to understand this but trust me i understand. i am also watchin the republican convention now and mccain is givin his speech. i always have watched the presidential campaign ever since i could understand because my first language is french. i am neither a republican or democratic. i am just a student who takes interest when its given. i really dont know why you all get sucked into republicans lies. they do this all the time. they talk talk talk give you promises and once they get into the white house, its not what you thought, it happened with both bushes and reagan and other republicans. its pretty sad. they say what you want to hear, show what you want see and you just follow like dogs. just because he was in war and got injured and stood and got pictures taken with presidents and whatnot doesnt mean anything.i mean i understand what he went through and i am not saying you should put that aside but thats mainly all he talks about and what they news focus on. he always uses that so he can tap into your feelings and people will feel sorry and vote for him. i dont know why you all cant see through all that but its ok if you choose not to. now sarah palin.... omg what a choice. and also the fact that he only met or/and talked to her twice and the second time was when he asked her as vp. if she and whoever else think just because she was a governor and that means your on the executive and what she has executive experience that why she is a good vp or even president then your way wrong. shes 44 with five kids and one child who has a child on the way. if you think she can be a president with all that in her hands plus more than wow. she criticized barack obama saying how can he handle 2 kids in the white house when she has 5 and one is a baby with more needs. i think barack obama has way more experience than her but i also think mccain has more experience than barack obama. i know barack obama has everything to be president and i know deep inside you all know it also. but all you all see when you see him is his color and thats a shame. i have so much more than i have to say but i have school tomorrow so maybe ill finish later if i have time. i think everyone had a good opinion but should also look at the other side and look without whatever your feeling or thinkin just be open minded

Hi Brenda,
I was a Democrat when I was young like you. I remained a democrat until I took an economy class at a junior college and for the first time understood the way Republican's actually think. The media is largely liberal and the school systems are mostly liberal.

The Democratic way of thinking only sounds right at the beginning, yet they are better at just giving out hand outs and taking care of people, than at stimulating the economy so that there can be more jobs out there so that people can work and not be in such bad need of the handouts.

Working is far superior to being taken care of, but if there are only so many jobs available, than there will be many that can not work because they can not find a job or at least not one that pays enough to live on, for you can not raise a family making a minimum wage.
