Experience

I got this in an e-mail the other day and it puts an interesting perspective on this election:

"You couldn't get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after
143 days of experience.

You couldn't join the military and become a colonel after a 143 days
of experience.

You couldn't get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news
anchor after 143 days of experience.

BUT....

From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to
the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory
committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That's how
many days the Senate was actually in session and working. After 143
days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander
In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of Abraham
Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan. 143 days.

AND, strangely, a large sector of the American public is okay with
this and campaigning for him. We wouldn't accept this in our own line
of work, yet some are okay with this for the President of the United
States of America? Come on folks, we are not voting for the next
American Idol!!"

SARAH PALIN'S EXPERIENCE --

Don't dismiss the fact that Sarah Palin is Commander
of the Alaska National Guard-- consider this:

Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile
interceptor defense system. The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska
National Guard is the unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic
missile attacks. It's on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units.

As governor of Alaska , Palin is briefed on highly
classified military issues, homeland security, and counter-terrorism. Her
exposure to classified material may rival even Biden's and certainly by far
exceeds Obama's.

She's also the commander in chief of the Alaska State
Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into
Homeland Security's counter-terrorism plans.

Palin is privy to military and intelligence secrets
that are vital to the entire country's defense. Given Alaska 's proximity to
Russia , she may have security clearances we don't even know about.

According to the Washington Post, she first met with
McCain in February, but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to
keeping secrets.

She can be entrusted with our national security,
because she already is.
