Media Echoes The "Heartbeat Away From The Presidency" Line

It is so very amusing to see the media respond to the selection of Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate.

One of Barack Obama’s major liabilities is his lack of experience, particularly on foreign policy. His selection of Joe Biden as his running mate was undoubtedly meant to address that significant weakness.

So, why would the Obama campaign be so incredibly stupid to say that “John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency.” Barack Obama, if elected, wouldn’t be a heartbeat away from the presidency… he would be the president. On day one, Barack Obama’s inexperience would make our country vulnerable. Obama’s campaign can’t argue that no experience on foreign policy at the bottom of a ticket is somehow worse than no experience on foreign policy at the top?

This was a great choice by John McCain. The Democrats are scared. And if they want to make experience an issue in this campaign… I say bring it on.

Sarah Palin has executive experience. Obama does not.
Sarah Palin has a record of accomplishment. Obama does not.
Sarah Palin is right on the issues. Obama is not.

I’d rather have Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency than have Barack Obama be the heartbeat of the presidency.

The left’s attacks on Palin are a sign of them being scared of her inclusion on the ticket. By attacking Palin’s experience they have now legitimized the experience debate, and that will hurt Obama in the general election.

It’s been a good day.
