Obama Campaign Slams Small Towns Again

Sure, they're trying to take the low road on McCain's pick for VP, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, but in the process they again show their scorn for small town America:

Barack Obama's campaign is blasting John McCain for putting "the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency."

The scathing description of Sarah Palin, from Obama spokesman Bill Burton, comes as Democrats scramble to gather a response to a selection that nobody in the political world expected.

This disrespect for a large part of the country keeps showing up from the Obama campaign and the candidate himself. This is not going to play well with people from those small towns who also happen to be voters. And there are a lot of us.

    What foreign policy experience did Jimmy Carter have in 1976? What foreign policy experience did Bill Clinton have in 1992?

    To continue Mike’s question, what foreign policy experience does the Obamessiah have? At least on the Republican ticket the person with a great deal of experience is leading the ticket and the person in the second slot is ready for some on-the-job training – as it should be. The whole point of having an assistant (basically this is what a VP is) is so the assistant can learn from the more experienced leader so that they can be ready when their turn comes.
     
    On the Democratic ticket you have just the opposite – the person with literally no experience is leading the ticket and he had to pick someone as his VP that has a lot of experience in order to calm voters fears at the main candidate’s lack. In other words, the person in the second slot will be giving the on-the-job training to the man who is supposed to be the leader. The Obamessiah’s choice of Biden just goes to underscore how unprepared Obama is for the job.
