In this clip you see what Joe Biden actually said in that meeting with donors where he warned about a Barack Obama presidency. Obama explained it as a “rhetorical flourish”, and the media’s not playing it so this is a must watch clip:
Do you really want a president that will invite such testing? Will your children be more secure, or less? Joe said he could name five possibilities, will the press ask him what he meant or which five? Don’t hold your breath.
This is really must see TV — watch about 2:30 into this interview when the reporter brings up the experience question.
The list and litany of things Sarah Palin has done that Obama has not could go on a long, long while. It has always been the case for most of our history that the best apprenticeship for a high level Executive position isn’t a legistlative career, but rather another executive postion. Our stronger presidents and vice presidents have almost always come from Governorships or Mayorial positions. It stands to reason that Sarah is much more qualified than Barack Obama.
Sarah Palin is very eloquent and convincing in this argument against the Obama/Biden energy plan, please watch the entire interview — she covers a host of salient points. I also got pinged in email a while back regarding the tagging of energy posts with “Hunger”. Just to bring all readers up to speed, energy prices and hunger are immutably wed. When energy prices go up, food prices will as well. Growing, transporting, and storing food is energy intensive. You can read those articles here.
