Skip to comments.Jesse Ventura: Palin is Too Inexperienced
Posted on 09/08/2008 2:48:32 PM PDT by pissant
Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who flirted with running for president as an independent, tells Newsmax that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is too inexperienced to serve as vice president.
Now here she is, after not even having been there for two years, shes now going to be the VP!? asked the 57-year-old actor and former pro wrestler.
I can tell you, after two years of being governor, you still dont always fully understand being governor. And now shes going to be a heartbeat away from a man who already had cancer, and hes 73 years old.
I mean, realistically, John McCain could drop dead a week into office. She would then be the top person in the world. Is she prepared for that? I dont believe so, having been a governor. After not even serving two years as governor, I was not prepared to be president.
Ventura also took Palin to task for not completing her term as Alaskas governor.
I believe in finishing the job you originally got elected to, he tells Newsmax. Sarah Palin owes the state of Alaska two more years of being its governor. That was the agreement she made with voters.
The former Navy SEAL commando added, Thats like joining the Navy, and deciding after two years youd rather be a real estate person, so youll quit the Navy. Well, it doesnt quite work that way, does it? And thats how I feel about it. I feel Sarah Palin owes two years yet to her home state serving as governor before she serves as the vice president. She should have turned it down, in my opinion. Shes not ready for it.

Jesse “The Troofer” Ventura really shouldn’t question the governing abilities of others.
Oh, Jesse, you big knucklehead, STFU!!
What did Jesse do when he was governor? Palin has already done 3 times as much.
I guess it would be different if she knew how to smash someone’s head into the ring buckle.
Former fake wrestler Jesse was good for one thing; he pissed-off the Dems. Then the steroids ate his brain.
What Jesse is really telling us is that in 1-1/2 years as governor of MN, Jesse did absolutely nothing, and so he figures that Palin did nothing as well.
Of course, he’s incorrect in that assumption.
Anything to stay relevant.
I think Jesse’s adVentura in politics is over. I guess he’ll be going back to rolling around with men in spandex.
Jesse Ventura — Independent — Outspoken — Irreverent — Sometimes Pretty D*&n Stupid
He’s whack-he was on Leno’s show and they asked about him being one of the conspiracy theory believers that thinks 9-11 was an inside job!! I guess is Palin had been a wrestler she would be more qualified?!! By the way did anyone else see him on Leno and notice his head shakes like maybe early stages Parkinsons?
Bingo. Experience need for thee, but not for me...
My husband and I really considered who we would want in charge. It wasn’t McCain, it wasn’t Biden, and it sure wasn’t Obama who is run by Michelle, it was Palin.
She is a determined fighter.
But if we are at war, McCain and Palin are the best ticket.
Sometimes the best thinking is not what everyone thinks it is.
Well, you have to admit that when it comes to executive experience Governor Palin is certainly no Barack Hussein Obama.
He's as nutty as Ron Paul.
next up Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale, Michael Dukasis, John Kerry, and Al Gore. How about the great advisors also. Beckel, Shrum, raspy voice lady on Fox. Winners in life I’ll tell you. They make $$ but couldn’t win and election if their life depended on it.
Being VP is like being a “real-estate person” now?
This guy is all over the place. Like a boned halibut.
No, its like joining the Navy, and deciding after two years you'd rather be a SEAL.
I'd be inclined to agree that two years isn't a lot of experience. So how would he compare that to a guy who's never been a governor, never showed up for work as a state senator, and has been a US senator for all of a hundred and some-odd days? If he were running as McCain's vp, I'd be worried because he has almost no experience at all, and what experience he has he keeps trying to hide.
I think Jesse’s had too many headlocks in his time.
He’s really embarrassing.
