What was one of Sarah Palin’s aides thinking when they described her two day trip to Arizona in order to prepare for her upcoming showdown with Joe Biden as “Debate Camp”.
The same genius also referred to Sarah Palin as “SP”, I mean come on… what is this aide thinking?
Are they trying to make her look less ready to lead?
When you have a candidate whose biggest criticisms are that they are too young and inexperienced how can you refer to them in such an informal way when talking to the media? If you want to refute those criticisms you have to constantly refer to her as Governor Palin, constantly.
But, more importantly, HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY REFER TO HER PREPARATION AS “DEBATE CAMP”?!?!?!!!
How can anybody think more highly of her after hearing that term? How can anybody see her as more presidential? How can anybody see her as more informed and intelligent?
Doesn’t this aide get that language and the way you use it is important? And who is letting this aide talk to the media… are you kidding me?
Image, people, its all about image.
Somebody please tell me this aide is unemployed by now…
(Hat tip: Hotair)
So, now that the pick is in, its time for the Democratic attacks to start…
What about Sarah Palin (who went to the University of Idaho) will they attack you ask? Well, as Ironic as it is, her inexperience…
That’s right, Barack Obama and his surrogates will attack Sarah Palin because she doesn’t have enough experience to lead… boy oh boy. Now, any sane person will surely see right through this pathetic tactic (seriously, couldn’t they come up with anything better?) but I figure why not examine it anyway?
Well, it is true that Sarah Palin has only been Governor of Alaska for a year and a half. However, as Barack Obama pointed out himself once, Obama actually has less on the job experience that Palin since he basically started campaigning for president immediately after being elected to the Senate.
But beside that point, there is a whole nother aspect to this whole “experience” debate… an aspect that Palin wins hands down (even when compared to McCain).
And that is the experience of running a government. Palin is the only one who has any executive experience. She is the only one knows what its like to be the one and only person in charge of making the important decisions (from all accounts they’ve been good decisions) and accepting responsibility for their consequences. Being an executive is most certainly a whole different experience from being a legislator.
Palin’s executive experience adds a lot to McCain’s ticket… not to mention the many other advantages she brings.
Good job McCain, you have seriously made a winning pick. I am impressed.
UPDATE: Obama attacks but then backs off
