Gerard Baker provides a side-by-side comparison of Obama’s and Palin’s experience

We can always count on Gerard Baker (U.S. Editor of the Times UK) to bring some clarity (and humor) to the muddle of American Politics and he does so today in his article in Real Clear Politics. Here’s an excerpt–read it all at RCP


Appeal

Obama: A very attractive speaker whose celebrity has been compared to that of Britney Spears and who sends thrills up Chris Matthews’ leg

Palin: A very attractive woman, much better-looking than Britney Spears who speaks rather well too. She sends thrills up the leg of Rush Limbaugh (and me).


Executive experience

Obama: Makes executive decisions every day that affect the lives of his campaign staff and a vast crowd of traveling journalists

Palin: Makes executive decisions every day that affect the lives of 500,000 people in her state, and that impact crucial issues of national economic interest such as the supply and cost of energy to the United States.

Obama: “The Perfect Stranger”–It’s still all about the “O” (Krauthammer)

Obama is a strange one…and his campaign is all about him.

He has no record to speak of. No paper trail. No witnesses (except for those now, as Charles points out, resting uncomfortably under the bus).

As it was in the beginning, it still is now. It’s all about Obama yet we don’t know who he is.

Here’s Krauthammer’s opening volley in Real Clear Politics today…

Barack Obama is an immensely talented man whose talents have been largely devoted to crafting, and chronicling, his own life. Not things. Not ideas. Not institutions. But himself.


Nothing wrong or even terribly odd about that, except that he is laying claim to the job of crafting the coming history of the United States. A leap of such audacity is odd. The air of unease at the Democratic convention this week was not just a result of the Clinton psychodrama. The deeper anxiety was that the party was nominating a man of many gifts but precious few accomplishments — bearing even fewer witnesses.

“Conservative Democrats Peeling Away From Obama” (Gallup)

This had to happen eventually (I am surprised it took this long)! Read the article and check out all the graphs at Gallup.

Barack Obama has been struggling to maintain his Democratic base thus far in August, and according to weekly averages of Gallup Poll Daily tracking, the problem seems to be with conservative Democrats.

Passed Over (McCain’s Hillary Ad–video embed)

Not only is Obama inexperienced in terms of his qualifications for the Presidency…he is also an inexperienced politician who lacked the foresight to imagine what the mere appearance of a rebuff would mean to Hillary supporters.

Whether he ultimately selected her as his running mate or not, one would think Obama would have been careful to give the impression that Hillary was high on his list…but he didn’t even pretend to vet her.

Sorry Barry, you once again have only yourself to blame!

Obama/Biden: “Congenital Windbags 2008!”

Barry picks Biden! And I thought Obama didn’t have a sense of humor.

Obama, himself abundantly gaffe-prone, picks another congenital windbag also most well-known for his loose lips and love of the microphone.

I know, I know! “Don’t tell me words don’t matter.” Heheh!

This election is going to be more fun than a college kegger!
