Schneider: Palin's answers

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

    I really don't know any more about her then I did before the debate. I was hoping that we would see what is suppose to be so special about her.

    Thank you, I agree. She is confident in the fact that she thinks she knows what she is talking about. She sounds scripted. Joe was real and at times showed much emotion during his arguments. I loved it. Joe was great!!!!! Oh Joe is the Maverick here. Not Mcsame Mccain

    "UP THERE IN ALASKA......." ....everything must be perfect...here is a "leader" who does not own up to past mistakes or even admit to them...that worries me alot....i think she is dis-illusioned to the real world in the contiguous states because she is severely out of touch.....

    please answer the questions!!!!!

    Can't understand alot of what she says. What's she talking about? What war did McCain win? Can she say "new-clee-er"?

    For those outside Alaska, please check out the local paper for information in Wasilla and Alaska to see her real experience in Alaska and while Mayor.

    She just repeats GOP talking points. There's no substance behind any of her answers..

    Did Palin discover Alaska?

    Palin's grammar is atrocious! I was amazed when she said she has school teachers in her family.

    I'm sure Obama and Biden will be much more capable of a coherent, back-and-forth discussion than McCain and Palin ever could. It's obvious that Palin has tried to absorb and spit back as much of McCain as she can, and that she has copious notes. Frankly, I'm tired of maverick, stinking corpse, and all the other phrases she keeps parroting.

    I agree with Bill Schneider 100%. She is incoherent.

    You know what? Biden is pretty good at this.

    She's a lier on taxes , job creation. Plus she also just described Obama's plan as far as infastructure. I have NEVER heard Mccain say anything about that.

    Hey Ryan,

    The biggest socialist shift in this country was just pushed through by a REPUBLICAN president, GEORGE W. BUSH. Bush is the real socialist.

  15. Stephen S.

    Agreed! I have struggled throughout the debate to follow or understand where she is going and what points she is attempting to make.

    Palin sounds like someone who making a presentation – unprepared – looking at the paper that is full of keywords and just throw them out and hopes something sticks.

    what does she have? conviction. what does she not have? meaning. purpose. ideas. experience.

    I would not agree. It is not that they lack coherence... they simply ignore the questions.

    she lacks understanding, she just does not make any sense.

    Who is this Schneider guy who keeps posting here and is only able to see the debate from one side? I'm watching it too, and I see that both candidates are giving strong answers. Very irresponsible journalism.

    She's just saying the words over and over again. I dunno what we just heard. She says we do because her debate was unfiltered.

    But really I'm just confused. All I know are McCain's slogans.

  22. Maureen

    Palin has avoided answering the questions with slogans and catch phrases. I want to hear the facts to back up her claims that a McCain Palin Administration would be any different then the Bush Administration.

  23. McPalin is toast

    She's a total airhead, that is clear.
    Spewing forth incoherent canned sound bites she doesn't understand.
    Refusing to answer the many questions she doesn't understand.
    Rehashing the same lines over and over and over....

    And what's up with that WINK to the cameras?
    Is this a high-school talent show???
    "You betcha, six-pack Joe!"

    Did anyone expect anything different????

    Back to Chilly Willy Land with you, Caribou Barbie!

    Wow, how many ticker entries have been posted here criticizing Palin? And how many have been posted criticizing Biden? There's a reason I don't trust CNN for my news.
