Republican Sen. John Ensign says Sarah Palin is not experienced enough to be president and John McCain’s presidential campaign “completely mishandled” her early days on the ticket.
The Nevada senator made the comments in a television interview in which he also criticized Democratic nominee Barack Obama’s readiness for the job. Ensign then strayed far from the GOP’s standard description of its vice presidential pick’s qualifications.
“Well, I do not think that Barack Obama or her are experienced enough to be president of the United States — neither one of them. And Hillary Clinton was much more qualified to be president than Barack Obama was, but that’s who the nominee is,” Ensign said Thursday on the Las Vegas news program NewsONE.
One of his staffers should just call Fox News now and reserve him a time slot for his walkback.
