Barack Obama contends that he is more experienced in executive matters than Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin because he has managed his presidential campaign for the past 18 months.
“Well, my understanding is that Governor Palin’s town of Wasilly [sic] 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,” Obama said.(from FoxNews.com)
Obama mispronounced Wasilla, the town where Palin was mayor. You know, he doesn't like small towns.
He also refused to acknowledge she is governor of Alaska, a state that had a $9B budget surplus this year, and has over 24,000 employees scattered over the largest state in the Union.
