ST. LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Palin veers off course - the question is about helping consumers with crushing debt, and she's responding with energy policy. Politicians frequently change the subject, but this was a pretty obvious 180.
thank you i agree 100% she has lost my vote flat out. Whats the point of the debate if u choose ur own topic to talk about
This isn't jeopardy
she's sidestepped most of the debate so far
This proves that Palin is way out of her league. She has yet to answer a question simply and clearly because she is programmed by the McCain group.
she's trying so hard to win affection by talking about her family and friends. just answer the question, lady!
So does Biden, Candy. Are you watching the same debate?
I love Fact check. She doesnt know the truth, only slogans, commercials and the lies that Mccain has spued.
Obvious? Perhaps the understatement of the debate.
How can Biden debate someone who won't answer questions. You can't.
hasn't that been going on since she has been on the campaign??? not unless they ask something about alaska then she does have a human answer
Palin is very good at dodging questions
But Candy – she's the Governor of Alaska. Energy capital of the country. Do you really expect her to stay on topic with the economy when she can talk about big oil? At least she did the 180 on a topic she can kind of talk to!
She's incapable of answering any question that diverts from her talking points.
Did Palin just say that surge and counter-insurgency worked?
Seems like any question that Palin doesn't want to answer, she starts either talking about McCain's tax cuts or energy policies... wow...
Sarah Palin is simply reading from a prepared script that is why she keeps going back to energy, regardless of what the question is.
Maybe she would do better On "Dancing with the Stars" she loves to Sidestep..
If Palin keeps sidestepping and doing 180s' to the questions asked she'll be tap dancing pretty shortly now.
Definitely–wasn't that her plan? She keeps trying to bring it back to a few things that she does know about.
Does this run 1.5 hrs.? So we are about halfway done?
Right now, on a scale of 1-10 (10 being best), I would give Biden a 10 and Palin a 6 or 7.
He's doing perfect...not missed a step. She's not answering the questions (4-5 times) and has also lied at least twice.
nothing new, keeps changing the subject, again and again
I can't stand how she gets breathy when she talks - sounds like she is talking to elementary kids.... does she think we are stupid??
She is so rehearsed for this debate...talking "straight" to the American people?! How is that possible when she won't even answer a simple question?!
Palin does not have a grasp of the issues. It is obvious by her inability to answer any questions.
