Obama supporters need to know their role and shut their mouths on experience

The democrats are trying to throw out the Dan Quayle comparisons. Not even close. Barack Obama can't shine Dan Quayle's boots, let alone Sarah Palin's shoes.
I'm borrowing a lot of this information from two RedState posts with the rest from thomas.loc.gov. The Redstate posts are Obama vs Palin vs Quayle by IlGlock and Jeff Emanuel's talk of the tape.
First, on pure numbers, here is the experience factor.



Overall political experience before going on the top of the ticket.
Palin - 12 years before running for VP
Obama - 10 years before running for president.
Quayle - 11 years before campaigning for VP, 19 years total.

If you go with high level experience (governor or us senate)
Palin - 2 years of executive experience
Obama - 2 years as Junior US senator
Quayle - 7 years as Junior US Senator.

If you go with total executive experience on actually running things.
Palin - 8 years, two as governor and six as mayor.
Obama - Nothing
Quayle - 4 years as VP, nothing before then.


We all know what McCain has done in the Senate. What has Obama done in the senate? What kind of change can he bring if elected. If we go by his US Senate record, don't expect much. He hasn't done jackshit so far. He is all talk and no action. Some "change".

During this current Congress, Obama has had THREE things passed in the senate. You can find this at http://thomas.loc.gov

1. S.RES.133 : A resolution celebrating the life of Bishop Gilbert Earl Patterson.
2. S.RES.268 : A resolution designating July 12, 2007, as "National Summer Learning Day".
3. S.RES.600 : A resolution commemorating the 44th anniversary of the deaths of civil rights workers Andrew Goodman, James Chaney, and Michael Schwerner in Philadelphia, Mississippi, while working in the name of American democracy to register voters and secure civil rights during the summer of 1964, which has become known as "Freedom Summer".

In his previous Congress, we have five things.
1. S.RES.291 : A resolution to congratulate the Chicago White Sox on winning the 2005 World Series Championship.
2. S.RES.516 : A resolution recognizing the historical significance of Juneteenth Independence Day and expressing the sense of the Senate that history should be regarded as a means for understanding the past and solving the challenges of the future.
3. S.RES.529 : A resolution designating July 13, 2006, as "National Summer Learning Day".
4. S.2125 : A bill to promote relief, security, and democracy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
5. S.3757 : A bill to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 950 Missouri Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois, as the "Katherine Dunham Post Office Building".

I can't go before 1989 on thomas, so I can't look up Quayle as a comparison, but Obama's record. That's real presidential leadership for you. Riiiight. Mike Rogers has done more than Obama has, and he's one of 435, not 100. Two bills that wern't resolutions. I don't think naming a Post office and passing a foreign aid bill on Congo are landmark bills. That's the "change" he will bring us.

Who the hell are Obama's people to attack ANYBODY's experience? Sit down and shut your mouth.

“Barack Obama can't shine Dan Quayle's boots?” Please. Obana is a leader, Quayle is a lightweight who can’t even spell. Quayle has eight years as VP? Funny, Bush I only served one term. The rest of this post is just as inaccurate, so you can ignore it. I didn’t need to read past the second paragraph to see the first obvious lie lie.

As for Palin, if she is qualified to be President of the United States of America, then so is Howell Mayor Geri Moen.

I changed the Quayle to 4 years. I mistyped that.

What's Obama led? Passing two bills and six resolutions (that do nothing) isn't leadership in high office. He's talked a game, but hasn't done anything. Zip. Zilch. Zero.

As I said before, Obama can't shine Quayle's boots. He's the least experienced presidential candidate since Wendell Willkie, and at least Willkie was more than a "community organizer."

C.G. Again you need your MOM to proof read your postings. You state Dan Quayle can't spell and you miss spell Barry's last name.

Obana is a leader

Is it not Qbama?

Typical liberal hypocrisy.

And as far as Palin is concerned she will be the deciding factor for the Peed off Hillary voters (18,000,00 Cracks in the glass ceiling) Look @ the site hillaryclintonforum.net, the vast majority support McCain. I can't wait the see the VP debates.

And as far as class McCain The day Joe Biden was picked, John McCain called him to congratulate him. That is class.

No Class: Immediately after Palin's acceptance speech Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton Said:

Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain's commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush's failed economic policies -- that's not the change we need, it's just more of the same.

Biden is the more of the same Ole Washington at least Palin is a fresh face. That is change.




Berry is an empty suit who's political career was started in Ayers kitchen.

How do you mistype 4 and 8; they are no where near each other on he keyboard? It is what is called either a lie or not being very smart.

He has more experience than Abraham Lincoln, the last good Republican President with the possible exception of Eisenhower.

Considering the slim majority the Democrats hold in he Senate and the Grand Oil Party controlled the House for two of his four years, its amazing he got anything passed. The Republicans in the Senate continue their obstruction, making hard still. What he has accomplished for bills passed should be looked at for quality instead of quantity. The Ethics Reform Law and Lugar-Obama loose nukes law are pretty important.

So what has Palin accomplished, beside selling an airplane on EBay? Again, why isn’t Geri Moen qualified to be VP?

He’s much more than a community organizer, and you know that. And why is that not important? He knows how real people live, unlike the elitist Grampy McSame.

All your credibility goes out the window when you make a remark that alludes to Obama, an African-American, shining shoes, which is a total negative and racist stereotype.

Republican Michigander said...

Geoff, you never heard the saying "not fit to shine his boots/shoes?" There's nothing racial about that saying. I was waiting how long before the race card came out. I never thought of "not fit to shining boots" as a racist stereotype and have seen that term applied to whites all the time. Usually I see it in sports. If white guy John Edwards was the nominee, I'd be using that term for him too because he has no experience either.

I shine my own shoes, anyway.

The only comment Obama has, is 'CHANGE'. The only thing he will be changing is his underwear, - for the obvious.
