The Gaffe Machine Rolls On

Two more howlers by Barack Obama. First, he lets slip what he really thinks about his brief tenure in the Senate. It’s over:

It would be interesting to know when Obama last set foot in the Senate. Since he has been running for President for pretty much his entire, brief time in Washington, one can ask whether he was ever really a Senator at all.

Then there is this pathetic effort to defend his own lack of executive experience:

Well, my understanding is that Governor Palin’s town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We’ve got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years.

Apparently Obama hadn’t heard about Palin being Governor of the State of Alaska, which has a budget in excess of $11 billion annually and more than 24,000 employees. Also, on Obama’s theory, the act of running for President gives you the experience you need to qualify to be President. That’s convenient for a guy who has accomplished so little in his career in public life.

If our intrepid reporters could focus on something other than Bristol Palin for a moment, maybe they would notice that Obama continues to make a fool of himself on a near-daily basis.
