Palin Again Presents Herself As More Experienced Than President Obama

Reported by Ellen - March 27, 2010 -

Maybe it’s just me but I find it absolutely ludicrous that half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin keeps suggesting that she has more experience than President Obama. When she did it again for the second time in a week, last night (3/26/10), host Greta Van Susteren didn't even seem to notice. With video.

Last week, before the health care reform bill passed, Palin opined to Van Susteren that Obama’s problems getting the legislation passed was due to his “(lack of) experience to know how to work across party lines and to know how to administer and to manage a team, to get policy through that makes sense… It’s a bit over his head.” Van Susteren didn't bat an eye at that ridiculous statement.

Nor did Van Susteren register any surprise last night, during her multi-part campaign stop interview with Palin and John McCain. Van Susteren asked the pair (at about the 1:40 mark in the video below) how they might have been able to do a better job working in a bipartisan way had they been elected.

Palin, just like last time, couldn't come up with a single concrete idea. Instead, she attacked Obama and suggested that, despite the partisan talking points she kept spouting, she would have been a better bipartisan executive had she gotten the job she didn’t need to explain how she would have handled. “This is another case, too, of Candidate Obama… not having a track record at all of bipartisanship whereas John McCain has that record. I have that record as governor of Alaska, being able to reach across party lines and the aisle in order to do what was right for constituents.” Shaking her head with condescending disgust, she added, “Candidate Obama didn’t have the record. That’s coming home to roost today with this lack of bipartisanship that’s hurting our country.”

Actually, the only bipartisanship Sarah Palin seems likely to inspire is that majorities of Democrats, Republicans and Independents find her unqualified to be president. Her 33% overall approval rating doesn't sound like she's doing so well on that bipartisaney thing too well, either.

By the way, is it just me or did Cindy McCain look decidedly displeased when Palin went into her Obamacare/Castro Schtick during the clip of her campaign speech at the beginning?
