There is one much greater disparity in the jobs of Governor and Community Organizer that makes your attacking it all the more offensive. It's not the responsibility.
It's the pay.
Salary for the Governor of Alaska (2002): $83,280
Obama's Salary as Community Organizer, adjusted for inflation (2007): $23,658
Difference: a few hundred shy of $60,000 a year.
Obama wasn't doing it for the money - he was doing it to help. And in jobs like that, your responsibility is empowering the unempowered. A far greater responsibility than securing earmarks for bullsh*t projects, in my opinion.
But the argument is made irrelevant by the fact that you earned four times more than Obama did in this position. He didn't have the power to change laws - you did. It's a ridiculous comparison - but since you've made it, you're owning it.
Despite the fact his task would be harder because he didn't wield any such power - which is not the same as responsibility - he went ahead and fought the good fight anyway. And he went into it knowing he'd be paid nearly nothing.
Yes, Sarah. You have more power as governor than he did as a community organizer. Unfortunately, your track record as Governor doesn't look quite as good as Obama's as Community Organizer, State Senator or Senator. You've been tasked with more responsibility, but that doesn't mean you've risen to the challenge.
You've supported ridiculous federal earmarks. You abused power. You've flat-out lied. You gutted the finances of a small town.
You have not done well with your responsibility, Sarah. And when you compared someone fighting at the lowest levels of empowerment for little pay to the Governor of Alaska, paid four times the community organizer who fails at all of her responsibilities...
You showed your true self. You're in it for the money and you're in for the power.
How dare you knock someone who earns so little to try and change so much with so little power. People like Barack Obama and anyone trying to bring change to the least advantaged are the reason people in this world still like us - because some of us are still good. When you knock Community Organizers, Sarah, you knock America.
Who is going to rally to the call against Community Organizers and for Power-Abusing Governors?
