Schneider: Palin's answers

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

    Thank God!!! I thought it was just me who saw that. Palin's answers sound rehearsed and Biden's sound natural. He clearly knows and believes what he is talking about. She is just spitting out half truths and "when I was in a Alaska" lines.

    Well said, Schneider. Well said.

    I don't understand what she is saying or even what she is trying to talk about.

    Even in adn.com's (Anchorage) poll, 49% think Biden is winning the debate and 43% think Palin is. One would think Palin would be doing better in her home state.

    I had to laugh (again) when she said it's been the media filter that has told American people what to think. Palin has "f-ed" up on her own–it ain't the media's fault.

    What is she talking about!? If you vote for Palin and her running mate McCain you deserve everything you get. $6 for gas, your home foreclosed, another useless war, a failed economy!!!

    Loud shrill gibberish is still gibberish.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation....

    Thanks Bill… right on point… 95% of what she has said lacks value… she seems a bit clueless… her views are very broad… not specific enough… pretty much BS!

    I agree with Bill Schneider's remarks about Palin. She does sound confident but "YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND HER"!!!!!!!

  9. this is shameful

    as a smart beautiful woman that I am

    i am ashamed of Palin

    I am sorry but not only she is clueless
    she is just ignorant

    and so why did we all go to school for?

    and is this miss alaska pageant or a national debate?

    and is this about alaska our about one of the most historic events of our times

    is this about a hockey mom who the rest of us dont ID with or , or about our future??

    come on, this is a VP debate not SNL

    Women that were supporting Hillary and are now voting for McCain because of Palin are the REAL sexists.

    her answers lack coherence because she is out of her league and because she doesn't answer the actual question she is asked.

    Oh gee, Bill, ya must be part of the liberal elite media. Up here is middle America, we like the idea of VP who winks and can't answer a direct question.

    I hate it how she keeps going back to her family and saying how she knows this and diversity that. Blah. I wanted to hear what she had to say and I was hoping that she'd gear up for this and have some answers so I wouldn't think she was scary. But, um... she's ever scarier now.

    Bill Schneider you are so full of BS it is amazing. Why don't you just tell everybody you are campaigning for Obama. What debate are you watching anyway. Just goes to show why everybody calls this channel the Clinton News Network

    Bill, you lack coherence. I'm sorry, but are you actually an analyst? Let me get this straight: You're analysis was that her comments lack coherence? Jaha. Way to be fair and balanced. great insight Bill...i'd say you're losing it in your old age, but you lost it quite some time ago. Have fun voting for Obama.

    She can't even spell coherence, much less know what it means or how to formulate a thoughtful response. She has had her head packed full of platitudes, and that is all she knows to do when asked a question. Sad. And painful to watch.

    AMEN no coherence whatsoever!!!!!!!

    She said in closing comments she was thanking for the chance to answer the questions – what ??? did she answer!!!!

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Go Biden!!!!!

    This is so sad. Palin is way out of her league. Enough of the cute catch phrases. Please just answer a question and stop giving out shout outs. Its not cute!!!!

    This came about an hour and twenty minutes too late. Palin isn't just unqualified, she's a dangerous candidate to be placed so precariously close to the Presidency of the United States.

    For the sake of our country's future, vote Obama.

    she is a master of the non-answer. i haven't learned anything from her that could possibly sway me. she failed at that. she looks pretty tonite, and thats about it.

    I would pay to NOT hear her speak.
