“By any standard, Governor Palin is less prepared as commander in chief than Obama.”
I usually agree with Medved, but I’m puzzled by his standard of comparison.
To begin with, Palin, unlike Obama, isn’t running for the top job, so the comparison is inapt.
But suppose we do compare them? I’m happy to concede that Palin has a thin resume. No reason to deny the obvious.
That doesn’t mean that Obama’s resume is heftier than hers. And I like what I see in her thin resume a good deal more than what I see in his thin resume. Let’s take stock:
He has a law degree from an Ivy League law school. This is the sort of Far Left institution that’s produced a runway court system. Rogue judges who shred the Constitution. And Obama shares their philosophy.
After that he spent a few years as an ambulance chaser…I mean…“community organizer.”
He also hobnobbed with an impenitent member of the Weather Underground. And he attended a racist, anti-American church for 20 years.
He has no executive experience. What about legislative experience?
Well, he had a lot of experience in the Illinois state legislature voting “present.” He also opposed the Born-Alive Act.
And he’s a first-term US senator who is using his Senate seat purely as a launch pad to run for President.
Did I leave anything out?
I suppose that by the standards of Gore Vidal, Ramsey Clark, and Noam Chomsky, Palin is less prepared to be Commander-in-Chief than Obama.
So, I guess Medved is right. Tautologically speaking, if you judge the two candidates by any standard whatsoever, then you can dredge up a “standard” by which Palin is less prepared than Obama.
