McCain: Why Palin is a Better Leader Than Obama

Mr. Ellis,

Can you name any foreign policy experience that Sarah Palin has? Just one thing. Or more if you can name them.

And don't repeat the line from the GOP drones that her state is next to Russia which means she has foreign policy experience. I live next to an elderly couple. That doesn't make me President of AARP.

Can you give me any experience, or even anything that she has ever said, that makes you think she understands the wider world she lives in.

Here's a nice little video. I had to watch it about three times; my own laughter kept drowning it out.

What sort of foreign policy decisions has Barack Obama--the headliner of the Democrat ticket--made?

She has visited Kuwait and (unlike Barack Obama) has visited our troops at Landstuhl in Germany.

Here's another thing to consider. I've interviewed and hired more people than I can possibly count. Many of them had experience in what I hired them for, even more did not. I would rather hire an inexperienced applicant who has a track record of doing the right thing in whatever their background is, than one who has experience but due to their record and their answers in the interview will likely cause a great deal of grief to my company.

That would describe The One. He'd take my company or my country in the wrong direction--into the ground.

My answer to the applicant: sorry, you're not what we're looking for here.

"What sort of foreign policy decisions has Barack Obama--the headliner of the Democrat ticket--made?"

He cosponsored the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act.

He introduced two initiatives which expanded the Nunn–Lugar cooperative threat reduction concept to conventional weapons.

He was the primary sponsor of the Democratic Republic of the Congo Relief, Security, and Democracy Promotion Act

He introduced the Iraq War De-Escalation Act of 2007.

He sponsored the Iran Sanctions Enabling Act.

Obama cosponsored with Kit Bond (R-MO) an amendment to the 2008 Defense Authorization Act adding safeguards for personality disorder military discharges.

He holds assignments on the Senate Committees for Foreign Relations and Veterans' Affairs.

He became Chairman of the Senate's subcommittee on European Affairs.

In his Senate trips he has been to Russia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kuwait, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, the Palestinian territories, South Africa, Kenya, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Chad, not counting his latest trip abroad.

"I would rather hire an inexperienced applicant who has a track record of doing the right thing"

Do you want me to send you all the video clips of John McCain saying the Iraq War would be easy and we would be out within months? I wish I could just disregard things I said 5 years ago like I never said them.... when they're on video.

In other words, he's worked on a lot of legislation...but no leadership or decision-making experience.

I honestly don't know everything McCain has said about Iraq in the past; what I do recall, I've had mixed reactions to.

I do know he'd be infinitely better than someone like Obama who thinks you can reason with terrorists and other evil people.

Obama lacks a fundamental understanding of the nature of evil, resulting in a dangerous naiveté on foreign policy.

He is also on record stating he intends to gut our military...at a time when it needs to be built up and made stronger.


I reiterate: I would rather hire an inexperienced applicant who has a track record of doing the right thing in whatever their background is, than one who has experience but due to their record and their answers in the interview will likely cause a great deal of grief to my company.

In the case of the office of the president of the United States, that kind of incompetence is what brought us 911...and Obama is far more naive and appeasement-oriented than even Bill Clinton was.
