She put all four candidates in the same catagory. More media bias and hysteria. . . Obama is so lame and negative that he spreads the report that calls him also unfit. Funny and sad.

Yeah, I like how they cut off her next statement - neither are Obama and Biden.

Anyway, Romney disagrees.

“I think she’s just misinformed in that regard,” Romney told CNN’s John Roberts on American Morning Wednesday when asked about Fiorina’s comments. “I’d be happy to hire John McCain and Sarah Palin to run a business that I’m an investor in.”

Advantage: Obama

Fiorina: Palin Doesn't Have Experience To Run A Major Company
Apparently she couldnt even run the tiny town of Wasilla, leaving it in the red. The woman has no experience, is merely a mascot for the far right. Mascots cant think, they just trot out during the game, wave and smile. gee, kind of like the beauty pageant she was in.

The irony of an Obama supporter doing any of the following:

1. Calling Palin a mascot
2. Calling Palin inexperienced


.... when they're own candidate for #1 is a) vastly less experienced than their #2, b) the least experienced democratic candidate for president in 100 years, c) THE case study in media and market driven candidacy and manufactured image....



.... is HILARIOUS!

Fiorina: Palin Doesn't Have Experience To Run A Major Company
Since you consider this "MAJOR", she said that NONE of the FOUR candidates could run a company, so are you now admitting that since her opinion is so important, that Obama is unqualified?

Governor Romney's solidifying his base for 2012....lol.

PENSACOLA, Florida (Reuters) Jaunuary, 2008- Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney sharply criticized John McCain on Friday, accusing the self-styled straight-talking senator of arrogantly exaggerating his knowledge of the U.S. economy.

"I think he has detoured from what was straight talk," Romney told a rally of about 200 supporters in Pensacola, saying McCain had often previously acknowledged his deficit on a broad range of economic issues."

"Washington talk says that somehow because you've been in Washington and you've been on a committee, that somehow you know how jobs in this country are created," Romney said"

Whats funnier, is that the Obama supporters run around proclaiming.. hey, she said they arent qualified so it must be true, and then when its pointed out that the comment also was directed to their candidate, they are quiet..

shhhh, liberals thinking, trying to figure out how to spin this or makeup the next lie..

Governor Romney was Senator McCain's sharpest critic....

"Romney was even more critical of the Arizona senator. He told supporters in Pensacola that as the only candidate at Thursday’s Florida Republican debate who had worked in the private sector, he was uniquely qualified to lead on economic issues.


He added that in his view, McCain hadn’t done well at the forum: the senator “had to come back and flail a bit, trying to attack my record, saying that my record — 25 years in the business world and three years running the Olympics, and then four years as governor of Massachusetts — that that doesn't qualify me to understand how the economy works.
“… a matter of fact, being on the Commerce Committee in the Senate, that's what gives you the expertise you need to know about how the economy works. Oh yeah. And I think he's detoured from what was some straight talk.”
