    She did not make ONE straight point or answered a direct question!!!! Just repeated the same rehearsed answers over and over again...But I must say one positive thing atleast...Whoever helped her with the cramming did one heck of a good job!!!!

    OBAMA/BIDEN 08

    Joe Biden is good. I think he knocked it out the ball park tonight. Gov. Palin could not hold her own against Biden even though she tried. She is not qualified to be the next VP.

    To me I thought in the beginning she was scripting her rally speech saying the same things as she does at her rally speech. Joe Biden is the man

    Call me when Obama actually defines "Change" and maybe you will have a point.

    Palin is a nonsensical person. I mean she's actually dumber than I thought. With my fellow Americans not being that bright either I hope they don't fall for this crap.

    7 times. She said Maverick 7 times. I was hoping for nine so that it would be every ten minutes!

    Vice President Debate Feedback...I felt like the 'moderator' was completely out of control...she allowed Gov. Sarah Palin to go on and on, without ever offering substance or an actual answer to the questions asked. She also allowed way to much political posturing, it was like watching an info-mercial about each candidate. I was most disappointed.

    the new campaing Obama/Biden vs. Marverick/Maverick. Is there any speech given by the republican party that does not include the word Maverick.

    Palin is a very good story teller....look at her dramatics...We are not here to hear "GOOD TALK" or "SLOGANS".

    All of us know, how to boost up ourselves, we dont need a story teller to infuse optimisim in us.

    She better wait in queue for VP longer. I like her. But am sorry, she is absolutely " a blank mind"

    Palin talks of wanting to speak 'straight up' to the American people – yet what she has done is skirt around the issues and fail to give the people specifics. I felt like was dealing a shady car salesman.

    BTW, what is up with Rollins giving Palin +48??

    Gov. Palin: "I don't know about mortgage, so lets go back to energy."

    She had to make sure that she stuck to her script.

    So because she is from Alaska! She is Obsolete? A "New Language"? You should learn,,

    the sad thing is, people are still going to vote for her because they >>think<< she did well- aka she could do more then just stay her name.

    Wow, what a mess. Let's hear it for apple pie and Joe six pack. Personally, I take that as a great big affront. If she gets any more down home Mayberry, we can all sit on the back porch and go fishing and ah shucks, just one of us soccor moms trying to rule the world.

    I think Sara did very well, although she didn't answer a lot of the questions she held her own. but i still wouldn't vote for her....her tickets policies are too scary.

    She can't!! She doesn't know what those things mean!

  21. JEW FOR OBAMA

    Biden coninually called Sarah Palin out on the lack of facts and coherence of her statements. Also, Biden knows exactly what he is talking about when it comes to Israel...Israelis and Jews around the world (and Florida) do not worry!

    Palin won hands down.

    Sarah Palin sounds like a broken record. No matter the question, she and her running mate are mavericks. I have no idea what this means. Has anyone asked her for specific examples of what a maverick does and why we should want a maverick when our economy is the worst in my 58 years. I'm terrified of having an irratic man in the white house. Now that she compares herself to Cheney I'm really scared. Is Cheney a Maverick???

    Palin, I’m a soccer mom and I’m not voting for McCain!

    That was soo, soo, i don't even know. When Palin was grilled with cold hard facts, she immediatly changed the subject, or spewed hockey mom bullux.
