Obama Slips Again, Admits Palin’s Mayoral Experience More Relevant Than His Senate Experience
After very recently making efforts to not only ignore Palin’s gubernatorial experience but also to trivialize her mayoral experience, Obama has now trumped up the importance of small-town mayors in contrast to the now-downplayed role of senators:
Later, during Obama’s period on stage, Time editor Richard Stengel asked him if Democrats belittled small town mayors.
“We’ve had an awful lot of small town mayors at the Democratic Convention, I assure you,” Obama said. “I meet them all the time. The mayors have some of the toughest jobs in the country because that’s where the rubber hits the road. You know, we yak in the Senate. They actually have to fill potholes and trim trees and make sure the garbage is taken away.”
It’s way too easy to make points against him when all I have to do is reiterate his own words. I guess that’s what happens when you’re dealing with an amateur…you know…someone who lacks experience.
