Irony Defined

Bush Challenges Democratic VP Candidate's Qualifications

From the article:

During a question and answer session with reporters, the president was asked to compare Senator Edwards' credentials to those of his own vice president, Dick Cheney. His response was brief.

"Dick Cheney can be president," he said.

John Edwards never held public office before he was elected to the Senate in 1998. Supporters of the president's re-election bid note that by the time Mr. Edwards came to Washington, Dick Cheney had already served as a congressman, White House chief of staff, and secretary of defense.

Let's look at President Bush's Bio:

He served as managing general partner of the Texas Rangers until he was elected Governor on November 8, 1994, with 53.5 percent of the vote. He became the first Governor in Texas history to be elected to consecutive four-year terms when he was re-elected on November 3, 1998, with 68.6 percent of the vote.

So Edwards is too inexperienced to serve as VP, having served only six years in the Senate. President Bush, on the other hand, was experienced enough to serve as President after six years as a state governor.

Next thing you know, they'll be attacking him for being too rich to serve the American people.
