Out of McCain's pick and Obama's pick, which one was ever in charge of a military force(National Guard)?...

Out of McCain's pick and Obama's pick, which one was ever in charge of proposing and signing off on budgets?...

Out of McCain's pick and Obama's pick, which one held a veto pen?...

Out of McCain's pick and Obama's pick, which one had to synchronize FEMA & Homeland Security issues with the federal government?...

Who cares? What difference does that make. Bush held all of those powers and it didn't help him. And by your analysis she is more qualified then McCain. Executive experience isn't a qualification for POTUS. Where have you seen evidence of that. You know our greatest Presidents would never fit any of your requirements. They were in the same age range. And none of them met your requirements of executive experience. So it is irrelevant

... and Obama picked Biden because Obama himself needed to use him to win, and because he knows that he himself is not qualified to run the country. Bam! Put that in your juice box and suck it

Palin is at least as qualified as Obama. The Dems chose Obama. That is not good judgement.

That's the gist of it...

As Gordon Shumway correctly noted in this recent post, the Democrats have their ticket in reverse order...

Put that in your juice box and suck it No he chose Biden because people like you assumed he needed some experience on board. Trying to ease the fear that comes from the "Keep us safe" Party.

Palin isn't close to being as qualified as Obama. Is she an expert in anything? Obama is a law professor. He knows all the important world leaders and they like him. You think holding a government job is all you need to be POTUS?

And you didn't?...

You're going to tell us you were perfectly comfortable with his experience and would've been fine if he picked a VP with the same amount of experience that he has?...

I think he is capable and informed enuogh to do without Biden. But I am very happy to have Biden's knowledge handy. I am sure he would surround himself with wise advisers regardless. I like the way the guy stops and measures his thoughts before acting. That makes me more comfortable then McCain makes me.
