Schneider: Palin's answers

ST LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) - Palin's answers do not lack confidence, they lack coherence.

    ok, the debate has become very boring. it's not a debate. I feel sorry for Joe. He knows the issues but doesn't have anyone to successfully debate them against. Palin is just giving a practiced speech. I guess she thinks that Americans are tas clueless as her and will fall for her slogans. And if she doesn't stop using the darn "maverick" term. I wonder if she really knows what that is.

    It's pretty easy to be confident when you're narrow-minded.

    Wow. Its soooo obvious when Palin is reciting a speech compared to when she is speaking from her own thoughts. When she recites a speech she looks at the camera and speaks well. When she speaks from her own thoughts she looks away from the camera and talks more in slurs and with a very strong accent.

    Almost none of her comments have been her own spontaneous thoughts.

    Agree with you 100% Bill. There is basically no substance coming from Palin. She is a talking condensed brochure.

    How wonderful to see Biden become emotional! Too many polititians seem robotic (Palin) today

  11. America think for you

    Joe Biden put that cheerleader out of words. America look at her debate answers she is clueless and not ready to lead this great nation. I do not know that if she did not answer the question asked but, she did not answer them directly. Joe Biden is the projected winner of that debate

    I agree – her syrupy sweet answers have a snide and condescending tone for sure. But they lack a message and an understanding of what is being asked. But who cares? She's cute and she's going to take the conversation back to energy independence anyway.

    Gosh golly, lots of down-home language...absolutely no answers. This sealed the deal for me. Great Cub Scout mom...not a VP!

    Not only do they lack coherence (starting with her rambing on Global Warming), they lack correct pronunciation, as in NUCLEAR, she says it just like GWB!
