Why is it Obama supporters claim Palin is unqualified to be VP when she actually has executive experience?
I don't get it. Palin is the VP nominee and the Obama supporters claim she is unqualified when she has more executive experience then Obama and Biden COMBINED. Obama is the one who is unqualified.

She's unqualified because she's stupid.

Palin has no clue what a VP does. No experience for her. Obama is a constitutional Lawyer now that's what we need in the White House.

That's exactly right. Obama/Biden have never been governor OR mayor of anything!

wouldn't you rather have an inexperienced VP than an inexperienced president? My votes with john mccain palin isn't even inexperienced so i don't know what the media is talking about.
Answered By: Ku4eva - 10/4/2008
Agreed. Why are they attacking the Vp candidate so much claiming shes so unqualified, when shes had more experience than Obama who is running for PRESIDENT! Makes no sense

Even though she may have more "executive" experience when looking at the calendar, I think it's more important to look at the whole picture. So for that, how about a resume comparison... More

Her experience isn't her problem, her knowledge that she didn't pickup from that experience is the problem. She has very little knowledge of national politics.
Answered By: Keith - 10/4/2008
And you can add in McCain as well. Are you suggesting she's more qualified to be president than he is?
Answered By: Lawyer X - 10/4/2008
She does not have more experience than Biden. Well okay she has had executive experience but she can't win a debate or talk about McCain's plans in detail to save her life.

Obama is the least experienced in this race. It is typical Democrat point the finger crap because they choose nObama.

Because Obama supporters are blind, and to the people who commented that she's stupid, or "have you listened to her??", get out of our country if you cant stand listening to ordinary Americans!
Answered By: Dizzy - 10/4/2008
She IS more experienced than Obama. What has Obama done in his 143 days in senate? Nothing but vote "present". We need someone who can make an executive decision!! Besides, McCain is the one who's running for President, not Palin. They're just scared and all they can think to do is say she's unqualified.
Answered By: Lovin Life - 10/4/2008
So did Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Being president of the PTA, a mayor of a tiny town, or even the governor of a state with fewer people than Obama's senate district, does not qualify you to be President of the United States. Wisdom and integrity are also important, and Palin has demonstrated neither.
Answered By: Don P - 10/4/2008
Amen brother. Obama is just a Chicago Mayor Daley Machine Product with strong ties Socialist groups. You know Chicago, right? Pay to play politics, corruption, nepotism... you name it. This is the change we need? I know Bush sucked, but Obama is not the answer.

Dems are scared and don't know how to react to a real American ticket. It's a good thing Obama has Biden on his ticket, who I actually like. Otherwise, I might assume there was a foreigner running for president with the way he talks bad about America.

I don't care who anyone supports for President but either way we have a major threat of an inexperienced leader...Obama hasn't had the amount of years that Biden and Mccain had in office and if Mccain dies while in office you have Sarah Palin who has the least experience of them all.

I have executive experience too. I was president of the humanitarian club in college. Does that make me qualified to be VP of the United States? Palin in numerous interviews showed that she lacks any experience or knowledge of US policy. She is unqualified.

More experience than Biden? Certainly not. Palin has a little more experience than Obama. But Biden is quite experienced. The reason the liberals are trying to hate Palin for is what they should also hate Obama for. I would hate to see Palin or Obama as president, neither are anywhere near ready.
