Schneider: Palin's answers

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

    Lack of coherence is an understatement.

    I agree, and she sounds too rehearsed, we need someone who isnt studying as they go along. ESPECIALLY being one heart beat away from the PRESIDENCY.

    If Palin says "maverick" one more time......and this woman does not know anything. She doesn't know when to smile, when to laugh, and she pronounces the names wrong.....and calls herself a business owner and an executive.....and that business with Sudan...everybody in the States had to pull their investments out of there.....she is so ignorant and so very ridiculous....is that what we need....another VP or President (God forbid), who is so lame....so ignorant, so un-educated and plain old stupid.

    You said it!. She really talks, but says nothing. Even for a politician.

    Bill you want to talk about coherence, Obama did not make to many sense at all and he seems to never take a stand on an issue, just waits it out until he figures out the best solution that makes him look good. Palin is doing a fine job for her first debate.

  9. Palin is not a champion for women's issues

    palin is a rambling hockey mom....she does not answer the questions....she goes back to talking points all the time...reformer, maverick surge...pointing back to george bush....how do we know where we are going if we don't know where we are coming from?

    Palin diverts her answers from the original questions....

    Palin's answers are not answers but more questioning the questions

    Now your talking Bill, you hit it on the nose.

    Thank you for saying that, and I thought it was me.

    Palin definitly put on her tap dancing shoes tonight!

    Every time she speaks...I say huh..

    Amen! I couldn't put my finger on it, but you hit the nail on the head. It's like she knows a bunch of words, sprinkles the word "maverick" along with other catch phrases and thinks it all makes sense. I'm a bit smarter than that, and I think the rest of America is as well...

    All of her answers sound rehearsed and someone should buy her a copy of hooked on phonics.

    Bill,
    I thought it was just me. It seems as she struggles to switch from the oneliners to the scripts memorized.

    Should we be surprised, Bill?

    We've seen the precursor to Palin's performance tonight in her interviews with Gibson and Couric.

    Conservatives kept saying, we need to see the Sarah Palin from her acceptance speech at the RNC. She was reading from a teleprompter.

    Quite obviously, tonight, a lot of her talking points came directly from the note cards on her podium that she had to read directly from, and occasionally glance up to Gwen Ifill or the camera.

    She's a trainable puppet for the conservatives.

    NO NO NO NO More McCain/Palin

    Let's get back to the constitution – for ALL OF US.

    She only read the first few chapters of "Debates for Dummies"

    She has not given a point or an example to any questions.
